Reviews for Commis

Superb execution on all fronts. The wine pairing was on point and the cocktails were aromatic. The food had surprising twists and turns- I particularly loved the smoked egg dish. The steak was masterfully cooked, and dessert was simple yet divine. All rounded out by a present and informed wait staff.Will definitely continue to return & recommend!

Well it has been 8 yrs since our last visit to Commus and it is still a wonderful culinary experience. The service was spot on re knowledge of the ingredients and timing of service. With the exception of the chicken dish, every dish was an inspiring taste sensation. The caviar preparation was wonderful and the egg dish a wonderful surprise (the white is not egg as you think). The brioche desert redefined Cinnabon. Definitely worth a visit.

Loved the Asian and sea forward influences that come across in subtle, non obvious ways. Somehow I ended up comparing the intellect with Birdsong, but found it way more elegant and thoughtful (which is normal given the other restaurant's focus on traditional methods of cooking). The highlights were 1) the cocktail, Ode to Farallon, made with konbu, spirulina, sake, and gin, 2) congee, 3) cured egg yolk, 4) corn and soy custard with caviar, 5) tomatoes with hijiki xo sauce, 6) full review
