    I thought everything was great, but I was shocked that the prix fixe menu split one cornbread and gave you a tiny teacup of soup and one salad to share for $75 per person. It wasn’t really a prix fixe menu but more like an appetizer sampler. Ruth’s Cris doesn’t do that with their prix fixe menu. In fact, I’ve never ordered a prix fixe menu that has ever done that! However, I’ll return to order from their regular menu in the future, because the food tasted good.

    Four of us ate here last week before a show. What a great experience! The food was creative and excellent! Alfredo, our server, did a great job outlining the menu and helping us pick our dishes. Raj was the sommelier and was very generous with his time and knowledge, even though we had actually brought a bottle of our own. And finally, Superisio was super attentive on keeping the water glasses filled and the table organized. Even the cocktails were generous in their pours. It was just an awesome experience and definitely stood out compared to so many restaurants!

    I have been here pre pandemic and had a good experience. Unfortunately this experience was completely different and the rest of our party had never been here. Our food order had to corrected several times but at the same time the food runners kept trying to give us other tables food! Our appetizers came almost same time as our meal. Our server (who was new) didn’t get part of our order right. It was quite noisy in the larger room so maybe that’s partly why but I wish she had verified the order. (It was not just one item). My friends were unimpressed and we likely will not return. Note don’t order the mezcal drink. Server recommended and it was a weird smoky flavor

    Building is under construction where restaurant is located. The building is sinking. So you can’t find the entrance to the restaurant and you can’t see out the windows. The food is expensive and very stingy on portion sizes. Doesn’t really matter I guess because the food is very bland and you will not want to finish it. Curry’s should stick to basketball. His restaurant belongs on the practice squad.

    The positives: beautiful restaurant, clean bathrooms, great service and the food is tasty. The negative: stay away from the SF Restaurant Week pre fix menu. $75 for 7 course meal looks like a good deal on paper but the portions are TINY! The pork belly buns is bit sized and each person only gets 1 bun. 7 leaves of lettuce for the truffle Caesar salad for 3 people. Suggestion: order from the main menu. It’ll save you money and won’t leave you hungry.

    My waiter was really rude. Seems like he got upset because I asked for a new plate since my was visibly dirty. Gave us our drinks but didn't check in with us the rest of the night. We waiting a really long time for the check, he walked by me, made eye contact, then looked away and walked right past us. So I was really upset I got bad service especially since the bill was almost $300 for the restaurant week special. I was blindsided by the extremely poor service and was not expecting that at all. The other servers were polite, the food was alright, but I expect the ribs to be more smoky considering the name of the restaurant. I've been to Chef Mina's other restaurants, and really enjoyed the food. So, I was expecting it to be good, but it was ok at best. 🥴

    I’ve been wanting to try International Smoke for a while now and it didn’t disappoint! We took our friends here for a birthday this week - The staff were very welcoming, attentive and their attention to detail was great. The tomahawk was a little underdone in parts for med/rare and they were very quick to sweep it off to the kitchen to bring the temp up. Our waiter, Joe, was great with recommendations too! They were also playing the Warriors game 😊 They comped a dessert for the birthday girl and there was a handwritten birthday card on the table upon our arrival! Our four person meal with a bottle of wine, cocktails, a few apps and two entrees (one being the tomahawk at $195), the dinner came to just over $600 with 20% gratuity.

    The food and drink is expensive so we expected a high value meal. We were dissapointed. It was awful. Wouldn't recommend here at all. Server was attentive when there though I did ask for the drinks menu midway and he gave it to me but then never returned to ask what we'd like. At the point we'd waited over an hour for food that was horrible on arrival so we cut our losses. Got the bill and left.

    Service was absolutely terrible. Took over 20 minutes for our server to stop by. Didn’t greet us or ask how we were or if we needed anything. Had to flag down another server for menus. Service seemed annoyed we were there and had no knowledge of the menu beyond the description listed on the menu. “How’s the flavor of the Korean BBQ rips?” Answer from server: it’s a Korean bbq flavor. Ok then. The food was decent. Bao buns were fire, but food quality overshadowed by the poor service. Took an hour and half to get entrees and not even that crowded. For $50 entree and $20 cocktails you should expect better service than what we got. I’d give this a big avoid given much better options in the city. This place stays open bc ownership is famous and wants it as a place to be seen.

    Excellent food, service and atmosphere. It was really apparent there is a team mindset to delivering a wonderful dining experience. From the host/hostess, to the server, bartender, kitchen team, to the team members that bring out the food as soon as it’s plated - everyone was working in concert. Congratulations to Ayesha and her management team for delivering a wonderful experience to the everyday diner. You’ve figured out the winning combination in a time where most establishments are contending with staffing and supply shortages in a way that’s barely noticeable to your patrons. I highly recommend, have recommended to friends and will return when back in San Francisco.

    I Had the Salmon with a side of pork belly rice my wife had the burger with the fries. Plus we had the lobster mac and cheese and cornbread. It was all very good with excellent service. We went for our 32nd wedding anniversary. The server gave my wife a nice card and made us a special dessert. Very enjoyable time at International Smoke.

    Seated in very dimly lit booth. I had the curry soup; which was quite watered down/thin/diluted; one pea and tiny tofu cube were the only solid pieces in my half cup. I requested no onions and garlic, minimal oil, for my branzino and greens entrée. It was not followed through. I had to flag my server and show him. He had it redone accordingly. :-/

    Restaurant has scaffolds blocking the windows, so although our booth was nice, the view was not. Overall too noisy to have a pleasant conversation. Food was good, but not exceptional. Sea bass and garlic noodles were my favorites. Desserts were disappointing, as was the signature corn bread.

    There to celebrate 30 year anniversary with my Sorority Sisters. Service was slow to the point that one of us had to meet with the manager. I know it’s California, but the drinks were overpriced. Also the food was not well seasoned and several of us returned our food for a refund or another dinner option. Especially the branzino. Due to construction, signage needs to be put up. Several of us got lost for an hour trying to find the restaurant. The ambiance was nice however.

    Made reservations for my girlfriend and I to celebrate her recent promotion. The restaurant had a great ambiance with the option of table or bar service. Loved all of the decor and lighting and always a bonus when restaurants provide private gender neutral restrooms. The food was amazing! Large portions to share and we ordered a lot (had plenty of leftovers afterwards). Out of everything we ordered (cauliflower, lobster Mac and cheese, garlic noodles, short ribs with rice, and bao buns) we absolutely fell in love with the dessert! We tried the dark chocolate cake and strawberry cheesecake and I am mean it when I say that the cheesecake was the most delicious and creamiest we had ever had! So good, would return just to order dessert! Overall, worth the money, service was amazing, and will recommend to others.

    The drinks and service and ambiance was good but such a place was not deserving of that menu. The Muncie had only a few items to choose from on talking maybe 5-6 selections. 2’9f it was ribs!!! If I wanted ribs I would go to a rib house. And there were only three choices for deserts. Now I have a sweet tooth and when I have to pass on desert it means none of it was good. Extended the menu and put some good food selections and deserts in there. This is not what other Mina restaurants have.

    This was our 2nd visit. We enjoyed our meal the first time but this time…not even close. We were a party of 7 celebrating a birthday. We wanted to try Ayesha’s cornbread since that is her signature dish. It was dry and flavorless. Ribs were not enjoyed, fish over cooked, drinks small and bland. The waiter did take my dish off the bill which was certainly appreciated, as it was dry and not edible. For the amount of money you will spend here, they can do much better. Will not return again.

    Had the Mexican ribs as the main. We're mot marinated and not tasty. Hence I only ate two to check they were all bad. Server took away the rest of the rack and b didn't even ask why I hadn't eaten them ( isn't that Server 101?)
