We were taken here for lunch by our son, and the food was fantastic! So many delectable, unusual choices. We ordered dishes from every section of the menu, and shared. Portions are small to share 4 ways, but extremely tasty, beautiful, and interesting. We will certainly go back!

my 3rd or 4th time here and the best experience so far. the food has always been great, but previously the service had been mediocre at best. I've seen some bad reviews due to the service, but perhaps they are reading them and trying to step it up. we interacted with at least 3 servers and everyone of them was... More

Whenever I come to San Francisco a must place to go for good Peruvian Seafood. Great Ceviche, good seafood dishes and amazing quality. Perfect place for remembering how authentic seafood is cooked in Peru.

Just writing this review makes me want to go back and eat at this place. It was so good. We tried an item from each area of the menu and they were all good, from the ceviche sampler to the chocolate dessert. We had never had Peruvian food before, but we will again after eating her. The seafood in all... More

We opened our meal with a Pisco sour; one was "premium" and two were "regular". I, for one, could NOT taste the difference, but one person in our party of three could detect the difference. Appetizers soon followed cocktails. For appetizers, La Mar Cebicheria offers a wonderful selection of cebiche, We (party of three) chose three appetizers: Cebiche classico (Halibut);... More

Read about this place in Where magazine and decided to try it. We had Pisco sours and shared a few small plates to taste an assortment of ceviches as well as the mixed house made chips: sweet potatoes, plantains and regular potatoes. Very creative with many textures on the plate. Love papas criollas! I wasn't crazy about the egg white... More

What a fabulous restaurant. I went here with my friends on our last night in San Francisco. We had never had Peruvian food before, when we explained this to our waiter and he happily explained the menu to us and made some recommendations so that we could taste a few different dishes. Obviously seafood is their speciality and that is... More

To celebrate my wife's birthday, my son and daughter-in-law suggested this restaurant. It turned out to be a wonderful suggestion, especially for the fish lovers in the family. They have so many cebiches to choose from, we decided on a sampler which gave us four different ones to try. My favorite was the Mahi Mahi, but they were all wonderful.... More

This place was off the charts! The restaurant is at Pier 1.5, a very short walk from the Ferry Building. We walked, so I can't speak to how the parking was. We had an appetizer extravaganza while I was there on business. I was introduced to some fantastic foods. It was nice since I got to try several things rather... More
