The restaurant is very nice. The attention Is good. I recommend the SALMON FUSION. OMG . I had never eaten anything so delicious. Is a Salmon with mushrooms, shrimp, broccoli, and a sauced with coconut milk and spices. Delicious.. I have that rich taste in my mouth.

Me and my GF went here earlier this month. We first went to la mar when they first opened. It was great! This time around not so great. I ordered the special and my GF the lomo salteado. When the food finally came out it was cold! I'm not a complainer so I said screw it and tried to eat... More

Let's call this a Peruvian adventure of delightfulness! Local hotel manager recommended La Mar and set up a reservation for us. We loved it. Great service (thanks Alex) and tried some new things - ceviche, empanadas, and a unique, traditional dessert. Great location and fun experience. We ate on the patio overlooking the bay. Highly recommend it.

Some good friends came to San Francisco on their honeymoon last year, and they told us about two restaurants where we absolutely must eat. Their #2 was Bouche (Which was fabulous!) and their #1 was La Mar, and they were right. This restaurant is huge, and we were seated on the outside patio. The staff was attentive and friendly throughout... More

A friend told me about this place, so my husband and I dropped by after a baseball game for an early dinner/drinks. The pisco sours were yummy and they certainly didn't skimp on the alcohol. We split four dishes, the cebiche with jalapeno, the empanadas de lomo saltado, the quinoa causa salad and the arroz negro. All were fabulous and... More

Sitting on the patio on a gorgeous San Francisco day looking at the water and having a Pisco Sour makes for a lovely lunch. Having been to Peru, I was searching for Causa, huancaina sauce, and a good Pisco Sour. La Mar didn't disappoint. Even though it is on the Embarcadero next to the Ferry Building, it didn't seem to...

After loosing our La Mar branch in Mexico City we had to wait the opportunity of coming back to La Mar at St. Francisco. We remember the dishes from 4 years ago like spicier, but this time, as always, quality was superb. We asked for the Cebiche tradicional, the most representative of the menu and it was great. An assorted... More
