Michael Mina mediocre experience

My wife and I finally had dinner at Michael Mina. The food was creative and very good. But not one of those meals that I replay in my mind like French Laundry. However, space is noisy and we felt that the service was stiff, hovering and, most of all, nudging us along so as to turn the table. Of course, they were fully booked for the evening. As a result we got stuck at a table on the Geary St side and I looked out the window at the bright green neon sign of Lefty O'Douls bar and restaurant. Dining Room at the Ritz is a hands down better dining experience.
