Lazy kitchen serving low quality food. My husband burned his mouth on the first bite of his seafood linguini. It was obviously heated in the microwave. We had ordered oysters on the half shell appetizer but they were an odd texture and off putting. I ate a couple and decided not to push my luck by consuming more. We also... More

The food was decent, and the wait staff were exceptional. It's a bit touristy, but if you're looking for something to eat in a nice location, this is it.

We came in during peak lunch time on a Saturday. The restaurant was quite busy, and the hostesses seemed very disorganized. They gave away a table to a party waiting in the bar, and weren't at all apologetic. There were several open tables, but we still had to wait about 15 minutes until we decided to take a seat in...

When we walked in the aroma from the kitchen was amazing. The wait staff was wonderful - ordered quickly and the food came quickly. It was amazing taste. Well worth the little extra cost.

We went for dinner after a tour of the bay. My husband wanted a different sauce on the Chicken Parmesan and the substitution was made willingly. The food was very flavorful and the prices are reasonable for Pier 39. The views from the restaurant are very nice as well.

Really lovely food with great service. Try the whole crab cooked in Garlic Butter! Great views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Pier 39 seals from the windows.

We went to this restaurant for an early dinner while at Fishermans Wharf. While the food was very nice, we found the service (although prompt) a little sterile and arrogant and did not have the happiest of atmospheres. If you want somewhere happy to go, this probably isn't the place for you.

This is a great spot to have a drink and appetizers. Food looks average but you are definitely paying for location. So have a drink and a bite but save your money for some real quality food..... View is excellent. Sit at bar day or night. Day views with a clear day includes Golden Gate Bridge.
