We had dinner but I was not happy with my choice. I had the roasted garlic crab with fingerling potatoes and corn on the Cobb. The garlic was almost burnt and tasted bitter. The butter was floating under the potatoes. The waitress was almost impatient and kept coming back to take our order. This was our first time so I... More

There are so many places to choose from when it comes to seafood in San Fran. You cant go wrong with Fog Harbor. A little more upscale yet comfortable. We had the tuna and it was the best we have had in a long time. You wont be disappointed

This is not the cheapest restaurant on the pier but it is worth the extra for the attentive service, pleasant ambience and excellent menu.

Fog Harbor was recommended to my wife and I and the food was extremely good. The service was great as well. They were fast, efficient and kept our drinks filled. They did a great job of explaining items we weren't sure about. The views were great as you can see the bay from any spot in the restaurant. Being night... More

My wife and I had dinner here. I started with the Crispy Lemon Calamari. It was prepared perfectly. Not overcooked. Served with a very good dipping sauce. For dinner, I had the California Crab and Avocado Caesar Salad. My wife had Crab Cakes. Both meals were excellent. The only problem was that I asked that the bacon be left off.... More

We had a prefixed dinner. The service was bad. He acted very politely but the plates were taken off while others were still eating their portions. Main course was brought same time as they took the first course plates. Food was very average, would't suggest. Needed to discuss about the invoice, they were about to charge too much.

First of all, great location, nice view. And maybe the seafood selections are better (they should be, right? though no one I was with was raving about it), but the vegetarian options are pretty much lacking. Sure, they can make any of the salad or pastas vegetarian...it's just bland. The blue cheese garlic bread appetizer was actually the highlight. The... More
