A review is not necessary for this renown restaurant, but I will write one nevertheless because we loved our experience so much. Acquerello is the most notable restaurant to visit in San Francisco. Quality of service, visual presentation, taste experience...beyond words.
Strong 3 and maybe a low 4. The starting dishes were pretty weak. I don't recommend seafood dishes here other than the scallops because they were pretty fishy tasting. The service was fantastic. I could tell they must of relaxed their dress code because the dinners there were not wearing proper attire which was disappointing because we made an effort to look nice. 1st photo-crab amuse-bouche: not good and pretty fishy tasting 2nd photo-sweet Madeline type cookies with cream. Ok but not a good follow up to the crab. 3rd photo-greens with a flan like custard. This was fantastic n I could almost be vegetarian if someone was willing to make this for me everyday 4th photo-seafood salad. This was a bit fishy and the pickled shrimp was a bit odd 5th photo-lobster tortellini. The presentation is horrible it looks like spit up. Only 2 small pieces of lobster claw meat and not very interesting tortellini. Also trying to overlook the poor presentation while eating this was difficult 6th photo-shortrib and more tortellini. It's good but very salty. just not memorable 7th photo-abalone risotto. OMG this was really disappointing. The seaweed on it was super fishy n off-putting. 8th photo-scallops. Very nicely cooked but I've had many comparable versions all over this city so nothing to be that impressed about. 9th photo-lamb. Ok this is where they really shined. This is the best lamb we have ever had period. Perfectly cooked and mildly seasoned and super tender. We got 4 course but I could have easily eaten this 4x in one sitting 10th photo-semifreddo. Not really a semifreddo more like a mousse. 11th photo-cheese plate was a nice way to finish. 12th photo-some take home chocolates and sweets was a nice parting gift
I have been here 3 times, and I think every time has been "ok". Last time, I would say that 2 of the 8 dishes I tried were great, and the rest were ok or disappointing. The service was a mixed bag (wine service was great, seating was terrible).  And I am not a huge fan of the ambiance.
