Had a nice dinner. The food was good, not great and our waiter was not as good as the one to the table next to us.

Get seasonal sea food and you will be happy! The children's items are very bland so its better to order off of the main menu for children. don't get the pasta.

Our server was a bit slow, but the food was very good. My wife had grilled salmon with a chili sauce, and she loved it. I had the baked lasagna, and it was deliscious. Our table was on the window overlooking the sea lions and with views of the GG Bridget and the Fisherman's Wharf area.

Perfect place to have a wine and tasteful food (order the New England Clam Chowder on a bread bowl). Also, ask for a table by the window and you'll have a blast (specially if it's sunset time). Worth the visit when in San Francisco.

This was probably the worse restaurant we visited during our time in San Francisco. It has a prime location on Pier 39 overlooking the harbour and basking sea lions, and from the outside looks like a pleasant restaurant, but the reality was quite different. At the time of our visit the staff seemed totally disinterested in the customers, and preferred... More

We decided to try the restaurant as it looked pleasant from the outside, so did the menu in the window and as we had just come back from a full day visiting the tourist sights, were ready for a good meal. Firstly there were two men at the desk to greet us...one who ignored us both (nice!) and one who... More

We went here when not able to get into Fog Harbour. It had good views like Fog Harbour but there the similarity ends. This was the first restaurant in the US we weren't offered bread at start of meal. The starters were nothing special but OK. My wife described her meal as rubbery overcooked shellfish. My steamed mussells were fine... More

Okay restaurant with a decent selection on Pier 39. We happened on it by chance and were satisfied with our meal, however, the bathroom was out of paper towels and the staff was not very concerned. Also, our server was not that interested in us and the service wasn't that great.

Had lunch here after doing the Bus Tour of SF. This restaurant only survives because of its location. The food and service was terrible and overpriced. Waiting staff were arrogant and unattentive. Would not recommend.

We were pressed to find lunch during a busy fleet week Saturday on Pier 39. Walked into here and the hostess was extremely gracious and accommodating, despite how busy they were. We had our 2 children with us, and when we were next in line, she said if we waited just a bit longer, she would have a great table... More
