A really friendly and professional team serving great food in a fantastic setting. Seafood predominates for sure but they do a great steak and my personal favorite ....Chicken Piccata served with spaghetti. I always have a huge bowl of clam chowder for lunch whenever I am in SFO and dinner too if I can.

Some of the best food we have had so far. Great view of the bay and pier. You even have sea lions swimming around while you eat. We will come back.

Ate lunch here on a weekend. It wasn't busy but we only saw the waiter when he took our order, brought our food, and then our bill. The red snapper was fantastic with a mango salsa that was tasty but not overpowering. The steamed vegetables were cooked to perfection, not overcooked to a soggy mess. The dungeness crab melt was...

Looked like a nice place with good menu choices. Nice view of the harbor and sea lions, but that is where it slows down. Garlic bread was good but our meals where average and some what bland. No attention to detail at the table or with service. As we walked around we saw some better choices for real SF seafood... More

I can only put this restaurant in the "tourist trap" category. While we had a nice view from our window table that was unfortunately the only good thing to say. Part of my main course was still frozen when it was served rather than being hot. A clear sign that nobody really cares and things are being rushed for the... More

Our tour group went here for dinner, we were sat in groups of four instead of a grouping. The meal was good but not exceptional. The restaurant was very busy and noisy. Service was a little slow but a good night was had by all

Had evening meal here as part of a guided Californian tour. It was a set menu with 3 choices. The steak was done perfectly and the tirimisu was absolutely perfect. The restaurant was extremely busy but the service was very good.
