On the last day of our trip to San Francisco, my friend and I stopped there because the weather was so nice (just warm enough and lots of sun) we wanted to find a place in Fisherman's Wharf where we could eat outdoor. We checked out a few places and were immediately drawn to Cioppino's. We got seated right away... More

Having had considerable trouble travelling through the USA finding places that will cater for my food allergies (I am Allergic To Garlic and Chilli as well as being Lactose and Fructose) we walked in here explained the problem and they could not have been more accommodating. The waiter went out of his way to assist us as did the chef,... More

Located right down near the water this restaurant features excellent seafood. Like most eateries in SF it's not cheap. The decor and atmosphere were classy and the service friendly and attentive. The sole we had was some of the best we have ever had. Their chowder was excellent. Expect to spend around $20 for an entree, average for SF. Better... More

I ate there two nights, the first time at a table; the service and food was really good. However the second time I dined alone at the bar, the food one more was really good, but the Italian barman was really friendly, and I enjoyed meeting other customers and chatting with them, in a very relaxed atmosphere.

No reservation was required and we were seated right away in the back of the restaurant, with a water view. The food was typical a la carte. I had spaghetti and meatballs. The meatballs were very good. The al dente spaghetti noodles were mixed with the sauce instead of having the sauce on top, but it tasted good. My husband... More

Stopped in to try the "Best Chowder" and were not disappointed! Great Chowder! The wait staff was friendly & attentive. The meal was flavorful & timely. Will certainly be back.

We found the restaurant to be very crowded and they also had the door open which made it very chilly. My Salmon was okay but my husband had the carbonara and said it was awful, equally my daughters child meal was very bland. Would not recommend this restaurant, there are plenty of others to choose from.

I am not a fan of Fisherman's Wharf - it's just too crowded. However, if you're in the area and are craving for seafood, this place is a favorite. Order the chowder.
