Keiko wine pairings? [San Francisco]

pauliface May 14, 2013 09:39 AM

Investigating the Keiko a Nob Hill website, I find that they have 3 levels of wine pairings.
Wine pairing -- $85
Grand wine pairing -- $125
The 'Magnifique' wine pairing -- $290

I am curious if anybody has feedback on any of these three levels.

The levels are actually kind of off-putting without any further description. $85 is not cheap, but knowing that they are holding back from two entire other levels, it makes me wonder how good it could be.

Is the $85 level swill?
Is the $290 level actually worth it?

    I'm curious about this as well! I've only done the regular wine pairing twice, and it was competent.

      I think you'd have to see exactly what they had on offer that night to judge. Their list includes a lot of great mature wines.

        Is there a story behind this collection? A guiding light? Looks like someone stopped filling in the holes

          I'm not sure what the history is. I heard about the list when they were at El Paseo. What do you mean by holes? They might have younger vintages aging somewhere.

            Sorry for the delay in responding, I thought I saw what was left after cherry picking.
