Read reviews and as this place was almost next door to our hotel we thought we'd give it a try. Initially, we thought we'd made a mistake. Snack bar ambience with quite a clinical feel to it. But the service was friendly and attentive and there was an unbelievable selection of burgers and beers. And the food itself was excellent... More

I was visiting on vacation and we just happened to walk by this restaurant as it was near the hotel. So glad we saw the sign in the window and stopped in! The restaurant had a nice feel to it and it helped to see all the awards lined up on the wall. The staff was wonderful at accommodating our... More

For the last 6+ years, we have visited and enjoyed Barney's on Steiner about twice a year. The location is good, the hamburgers, sweet potato fries, and milkshakes are inviting, and we look forward to our visits. Our experience on our last trip, however, was not at the level that we had learned to expect. The meal was in no... More

I tried one of their speciality truffle burgers it was char grilled to perfection and although it was very substantial I couldn't leave a crumb. Best Burgers I've tried in in a number of countries.

We ate a few times at Barney's while in San Francisco. We liked the food (great hamburgers, curly fries and Ketchup (some different brand than Heinz)!),atmosphere and service while eating here.

Food was good but a little over priced, nice conservatory type area out the back. Staff were friendly, but service was a little slow.

Truth be told, I'm in my early twenties and haven't experienced a colossal number of restaurants. But Barney's was unlike any dining experience thus far- and it was simply magical. The atmosphere was undoubtedly contemporary and the food was organic, excellently prepared, and amazing! I had the chipotle burger and blackberry milkshake. I strongly recommend everyone to try this place... More

The choice, service and food are great but the portions are huge!! We are british and find the American enourmous plate think off putting. Chicken strip starter must have been two whole breasts! A portion of fries is half a bucket. We will return, but we'll order less!

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
