Good Food, Fantastic View

Lunch overlooking the San Francisco bay area. Food (coconut shrimp & ceasar salad) was good - not fantastic but good. The view is quite fantastic - this was the view that made my wife fall in love with America when she first came to San Francisco in 2002. Looking out the window as the pelicans... read more

Bad food, very bad service and horrendous prices! Waiter forgot about everything, I had to remind him twice to bring my beverage, a Corona, can this be that diffucult, a Corona??? Soup was not hot and fried seafood platter, tasteless and boring, served with whitish looking underfried french fries. You could not eat much worse. The view was absolutely fantastic!... More

I stopped at Pier 39 when i had time to kill before a flight, and a craving for seafood. I chose Neptune at the end of the pier, and im glad i did. Views from inside were amazing, and service was great. The meal was pricey ($50) but thats what you get in that location. I had an excellent bloody... More

The food was all right especially the oyster Rockfeller. The main course composed of fried seafood for $25 isn't really worth it. I didn't like the "5% surcharge" added to the bill at the end. I've been told it's for operating a business on the pier, but is it my problem? We come to this restaurant because it's on the... More

Lobster bisque soup was the best I've ever had. It was so good that I went back the next day for more. I think that the bisque is better if it sits for a longer period of time vs a fresh batch apparently if it simmers it gets more savory. View of Alcatraz and the bay was 5 stars amazing.... More

I really relied heavily on reviews when picking a restaurant to eat at in Pier 39. I was not disappointed! Just as everyone reported, our view was awesome and we got to watch the sun set and lights come on throughout the bay - including the Golden Gate Bridge. Since the view was so great, I was prepared for mediocre... More

The location is perfect and the food and service is 5 star. We had the fish and chips and it was the best I have ever had. The fish was so fresh I imagined it was caught as we waited. The staff were very attentive but not over the top. The view from a window table is amazing. Would certainly... More

The food was very good and view was excellent. This is a great place to have lunch or dinner and look out over the bay at Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. But I would have liked to have seen more seafood selections.
