Great surprise

Wandered along the Embarcadero after a morning at Alcatraz, looking for lunch away from the very busy Fishermans Wharf, La Mar, a Peruvian restaurant had great upbeat music ( not too loud) and a lovely light and airy appeal. We were happy to sit inside as no tables available outside. Great... read more

The food was stunning, the wine sublime. Atmosphere fantastic but so can be said by thousands of restaurants worldwide. Its the people you remember and its that human touch that makes it special.

We enjoyed the bright decor, and personal service; and food was amazing. The ceviche sampler had many rich flavors and textures of seafood and sauces. The view of the water and boats was fun and seeing the lights of the city after dinner was beautiful.

La Mar was recommended to us by the concierge at our resorts. We decided to gI've it a try do lunch. All of the food coming out of the kitchen was attractively plated. On the recommendation of our server, we ordered the Halibut Cerbiche which was incredibly awesome. May be the best halibut I have ever had! We also ordered... More

Yuck! We stopped by after having oysters at the hog island oysters (omg go! It's amazing). We thought we would have a ceviche and pisco sour as a quick stop on our culinary trip. We specifically asked for spicy. What we got was a sweet ceviche with glover less seafood. Paying over 70 bucks for two drinks and a ceviche... More

First time here. Went with 3 girlfriends. We had great drinks and wine. Fantastic service. First we shared the ceviche sampler and the empanada sampler. Both were delicious. Then we each ordered a meal. I had the risotto dish with seafood. It was amazing. Cooked perfectly. Very flavorful. I highly recommend!

We arrived shortly after 7 with no reservation. A large restaurant but an hour and a half wait for a table so we took seats at the bar facing the kitchen. Service was very attentive given how busy the restaurant was. And the food was delicious. I had a seafood pasta dish which was very generous on the seafood. The... More

If you don't know about ceviche, then I highly recommend that you try it when is done by the best! This is a fantastic culinary experience. Even for people that don't eat fish,.. You might not mind it at all after you eat at this well loved restaurant, where the atmosphere is cool and playful . Fantastic knowledgeable staff is... More
