Nice view and decent food for Cannery Row

Had lunch here after a long day sightseeing. It was a nice view of the bay outside though the tables are close together and you need to stand up to really get much of a view. We had a variety of food. My salad was good. My teens ate fish and chips along with a calamari dish, They enjoyed... read more

If you are looking for decent Italian food on Cannery Row, then Louie Linguini's will hit the spot. It is a good family spot with a typical kids menu. The wait staff is friendly and the service is good. The restaurant is fairly large so wait times if any are not bad considering you are in the middle of a... More

Growing up where the fish that is sold was in the water that morning, I am very picky about the fish I eat. I had the salmon and it was fresh and very well prepared. My husband had the jambalaya and although it was good, it was not spicy enough for him. The New England clam chowder was delicious. I... More

While visiting Cannery Row and the aquarium we stopped in for lunch. The view as great and really the reason for choosing the restaurant. Our waiter was professional and attentive. We had the scampi linguini, mediterranean salad, spaghetti and meatballs and margherita pizza. A were good, but not great. I would go back but more for the view and the... More

We went twice on our trip and enjoyed it both times. A sufficient number of vegetarian options and customizable items. The pasta was excellent, with authentic italian sauces. The waitstaff were pleasant and attentive. Overall great experience. Food was a little expensive.

The view from the patio is the best. The clam chowder is very good, but the rest of our food was just average. Service was nothing to brag about, we had to ask more than once, for refills on our drinks, and it wasn't all that busy.

We ate here due to the location overlooking the bay from the 2nd story. They serve you yummy complimentary sourdough bread when seated. We got a bbq chicken pizza that was decent (not the best or worst) and also a mixed green salad that was good. Not the best food but good and location and view was very nice.

We stopped in for a light dinner around 5:30. There was some confusion with the staff about seating us. I think there was a training situation going on. Once seated we ordered two margaritas, an artichoke appetizer (their specialty) and a large bowl of clam chowder. They have a cart along the sidewalk outside giving samples of the chowder and...
