Food just medium, no flavor, no freshness; price about fair for what you get, caters to large groups.

I ordered shrimps and crab in my mixed salad it arrived with shrimps only. It went back to the kitchen. When it came it has some crab meat, the dressing was like water poured into it. The green was swimming in the dressing. If you don't speak Spanish or you don't look you can afford there food you were served... More

Awful service & awful food. Dirty spoons & glasses on table. Staff were rude when they bothered to come to our table. No sauce served with the crab as stated on the menu. Salad in plate of water. Desert water soaked from defrosting.

Visited here last night as part of a tour group. Upon arrival it looked promising and were seated at a nice table with lovely views of the bay and sea lions then it went downhill!! We noted the cutlery to be dirty and it seemed to be a rush to get us seated. Starter consisted of wet iceberg salad leaves... More

Walked in and were seated along the window, spectacular view of Golden Gate on a sunny late afternoon/early evening. Watching the ships roll in as we had a beverage waiting for the food. Service was a bit slow I'll agree, but the waiter was very attentive the entire time and was spot on with whatever we may need. He was... More

We dined with a large group, okay that can be a problem. But is was all arranged and there was a menu. And it was not the first time this organisation sent groups. So why the rush, why the half portions? And why a very bad blend of red wine? Some waiters 'told' you to take the coffee while still... More

Only a quick visit as we saw they were doing happy hour, when we sat down at the bar after not being greeted by anyone, we asked what 'all well' cocktails meant, the lady responded 'the cheap stuff', after selecting our drinks they were plonked in front of us without a word! Terrible service and would never visit again, whether... More

Not much to say. The food and service was adequate, but not memorable in any way. Nice to have a view of the sea lions, but I can't say I would return for the food.

We got there early for lunch and sat at a window with a terrific view of the Bay. The steamed clams were fantastic and we also had some very good fish & chips. Service was great and the waiter even helped us with some tourist info.!
