Medallion Steakhouse Bombs; Quince Scores


• Michael Bauer had just one and a half stars for food and Service (though two overall) at Medallion Steakhouse, where unsteady service and amateurish cooking make for "an uneven experience if you don't order carefully." [SF Gate]

• Patricia Unterman takes her crack at the newly reopened Quince, and is appropriately impressed. "The stunning food, the abundance of unpretentious but intuitive service and now a chic dining room, bar and lounge, all make Quince a big-time, big-deal restaurant." [SF Examiner]
