We were hungry when walking along the Embarcadero and happened to see this place. The food was wonderful. Had the beef tenderloin and it was great! The ambience was lovely and the wine was also very good. Will definitely return!!!

My wife and I dined here during Dine San Francisco (set menu) and really enjoyed it, so we made a pact to return and order from the full menu. We were not disappointed - the service from start to finish was impeccable and the food was really good - just fell short of being great. Of course, this is the... More

I've eaten at this spot about a mile from my office (FitBit friendly!) a couple of times now during the summer. I cannot fault the lovely decor and setting -- soaring ceilings and indoor/outdoor space give a tropical feel to the dining areas, and they also have a classy, open bar and waiting space thanks to this being a converted...

My daughter lives in S.F. and recommended La Mar. We live in the east bay and are always looking for a new experience. The Zagut rating impressed us so we were ready for something great. We had a nice table looking out on the bay between wharfs and our waiter was pleasant and helpful. We started with a cebiche mixto... More

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
