While on vacation this summer our hotel concierge recommended this restaurant for our family of four - and we're glad he did! Our teens devoured their seafood and us adults savored the entrees. The wine list is extensive - as one would expect in SF. The service, from the hostess to the sommelier to the waiter, was attentive.

We walked in as a reference from the concierge service of our hotel and let me tell you....the place is great. Just try the salmon and scallops. The atmosphere is very original. Service is great.

We went to this restaurant in September 2014. The service was excellent and the ambience incredible. The sea food was excellent and well prepared. I would suggest this restaurant if you love seafood and great service. Get a reservation as it fills up fast.

We arrived a few minutes early for our first seating reservation and had a drink at the bar, which was nearly full. The beautiful interior design of Farallon impacts you upon entry and previews the spectacular main dining room. A group of women on our left had ordered oysters from the somewhat cut-rate bar menu. The nicely presented oysters were... More

The food was pretty good, not "to die for", the waiter was extremely pushy about needing to order another course, as he claimed the portion size would be tiny and not enough for a meal. When the bill came, there was an additional tax being passed on to customers for health care of the restaurant staff.

I feel lucky to have had a chance to eat at Farallon. We arrived late in the evening without a reservation and they acted like they had been waiting for us all night. We had a window seat on the second floor. The wait staff was so professional and did things with such skill and understated service it was amazing.... More

We weren't sure what to expect, having chosen this only the night before, from an internet search. But it was terrific from the start, not least because of the expert service of (tall handsome) Brian - great banter but professional too. Highlights of the delicious food offering were the tuna and the soft shell crab. Great ambience and decor too.

Farallon, with its interesting under-the-sea decor, did not disappoint. The service was great. Food presentation was lovely. Everything was delicious! A great choice for seafood and fish.
