Welcoming, friendly, professional service. Nice decor but can get a tad loud at times. Inflated wine list and a pretentious sommelier. My husband and our dinner companion both wore jackets as requested but there were several other diners who weren't dressed appropriately. Incredible food combinations,...More

Perfect special evening with 3 amuse bouche, wonderful smoked sturgeon, pumpkin seed and lentils second course, tender lobster tail, and choice of desert tid-bits--all delicious with wonderful wines. We think of this restaurant as our #1 dining experience in San Francisco.

The food is great, various courses, including some complimentary courses from the chef. I found the food to be slightly on the heavier side, and the presentations not impressive. Maybe going in, I had higher expectations, but I am not convinced this place deserves all...More

Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that

I assume this is about the Hilton even though it says you're asking about Acquerello. We had one king bed in our room.

Description
Acquerello, named for its original watercolors, envelops guests in a warm and gracious atmosphere the moment they arrive. "At Acquerello, we believe that refined luxury is always in style. Our desire is to provide our guests an experience of classic and contemporary Italian tastes in an elegant dining atmosphere." The 40 seat dining room has an upscale and quiet ambiance. The room, designed by John Wheatman, highlights the former chapel, graced with arches and a rustic wood-beamed vaulted ceiling, with warm Mediterranean colors of gold and terracotta. Acquerello's contemporary approach to Italain cuisine combines the freshest ingredients available, an innovative approach to classic Italian flavors, and modern techniques. Guests can design their own three, four or five course dinner with the Prix Fixe Menus or choose to enjoy the preset chef's Seasonal Tasting Menu. Acquerello,in its more than 25 years in operation, has received countless accolades and awards, including a Michelin star in the first-ever 2007 Bay Area guide, two Michelin Stars in 2015, and a Wine Spectator Grand Award for the wine list continuously since 2012.
