I took some friends from Croatia to lunch at Neptune's. We got a table that looked toward the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz and overlooked the sea lions on the west side of Pier 39. The view was great! We got to see the fog gradually lift from the bridge as we enjoyed our meal. The view was beautiful. I... More

Had reservation at 3 pm. We had 4 waiters attending us. We each ordered what we liked. They were amazing, even went across the street to get fresh sourdough for us. Food was awesome though a bit pricey, but it was afterall Pier 39.

Great menu. The option to add salad and desert is well-priced. Salads were fresh and cold. The fish was deliciously prepared. Service is friendly but not pushy. Sitting in the Sea Lion room was a hoot, watching the sea lions out our window. A VERY enjoyable dinner!

The food was good and the restaurant was casual elegant, my fav. We had a great meal with quick efficient service and a charming waiter. I had grilled chicken penne, my spouse had a NY steak, and our 11 year old had a basic spaghetti, thank heaven there was something a child would like. Our meals were excellent as were... More

Enjoyed a great lunch here after being out on the bay. Service and food were outstanding, and the view was even better. Definitely a place to check out when you're at Pier 39.

The food and service were superb. There is a trio special that comes with most entrees. The view from our table was outstanding, Alcatraz and all the harbor traffic. Fun place at the end of Wharf 39 and easy cab ride from our hotel.

We checked out every restaurant on Pier 39 and decided on this one. We were extremely glad that we did. I saw some of the negative reviews, but decided to see for ourselves. What we ordered was excellent. I had the lobster bisque in a sour dough bread bowl which was perfect. The bisque had more lobster in it than... More

Neptunes has great views and the service was very helpful. The food was above average. The interior of the restaurant needs a complete cleaning and renovation. There was a bad smell in reception area and in the restroom area and the carpet on the floor looked like it had not been vacuumed in over a week.

While the location is wonderful (overlooking the sea lions); it was not worth the visit. We were there on a Tuesday night in June at 6:30-7pm, with only about 30% of the seats filled and couldn't get ANY service. Asked 5 times (and 3 different people) for bread before they delivered it. Asked 3 times for water, never got it.... More
