Notably welcoming and warm, Quince is upscale yet conveys a distinct northern Californian personality. The airy and attractive room features brick walls and elegant everything, yet nothing is stuffy or heavy. There are no poseurs or loud crowds. Everyone is just happy to be here and celebrating a special occasion, business deal, or vacation. This sounds simple, but Quince has attained an easy grace that other restaurants don't realize they lack. The menu favors a more contemporary Italian cuisine, which is creative and delicious. The nightly prix-fixe may begin with a slow-cooked farm egg in a complex vegetable broth with seasonal accents like pristine micro turnips, shaved asparagus, and bits of paper-thin bacon. This might be followed by perfectly cooked pasta like casoncelli with roasted, shaved, and blanched asparagus in brown butter; or house-made strichetti in a powerfully reduced squab sauce with shredded loin, truffles, and Parmigiano Reggiano. Finish with an ambitious and modern sweet, like a rectangular millefoglie layering chocolate cake and mousse with pistachios, alongside a scoop of intense pistachio ice cream with lemon confit, crumbled honeycomb, and toasted nuts.

      Pros

      The cauliflower gnocchis were outstanding as well as the blackcurrant/violet dessert. Large selection of Californian wines as well as some good bottles from La Romanée Conti. Cheeses are not included in the menu as they do in many French restaurants.
