Great meal, service and location

We enjoyed a variety of share plates, great apertifs and wine on the patio. All were delicious. Pisco sours to start as well as ceviche is a must try. Will definately return.

Wide selection of seafood and proteins with very fresh ingredients. Solid wine selection with decent pricing. Recommend sitting on the patio, order from multitude of ceviche options and trusting staff and somm with wine recommendations. Good for happy hour too.

The Peruvian flavored upscale dishes and waterfront location are really great for out of town guests. Don't be over sold on the "water view" part, because unless you're out in the farthest part of the restaurant, there's little to no view. But the decor and feel of this busy restaurant make that pretty irrelevant. The noise level is really high.... More

Waited 20 minutes for our reservation. After that our waiter took us thru the menu and was very helpful in helping us with a number of interesting and tasty items. The crevices were especially good. Service all around very good but could not say it and food rated an excellent. A good introduction to Peruvian food.

La Mar deals with vibrant, playful and colourful food; every plate presented to us came with an air and an aura of extravagance which actually chimes nicely with the relaxed setting and atmosphere. Prices were a little steep but this can most likely be put down to having to cover the cost of being situated on Pier One. Pretty enjoyable... More

I have been here a few years ago. It may be that I just get more easily bored these days, but I found the food to be not as exciting as before. Had the cebiche sampler platter, which for 2 of 3 samplers were okay but not more. I also was a bit irritated by the fact that this dish... More

Well located on Pier One, this is a well run 400 seater Peruvian restaurant serving authentic Peruvian food. Great atmosphere and a menu with many dishes to choose from - good service and well chosen wine list

We had a totally satisfying meal at La Mar and were so excited by the incredible and flavors and boldness of presentation. Our service was excellent and our server's recommendations where on point. We loved the different ceviches and grilled seafood dishes and enjoyed some great vegetarian small plates too. Complimentary wine list and fabulous setting right on the water... More

Everything here is top-notch, but the most important thing, the food shines and shines. There are other great Peruvian Restaurant options in San Francisco, such as Fresca or Limón, but La Mar elevates Peruvian food to a whole new level. Gastón Acurio is a gastronomic genius. It's on the pricier side relative to the others, but it is definitely worth... More
