We had a really nice lunch here. The wait staff were really on top of things. The clam chowder was maybe the best I've ever had. Smoked salmon was great. All the food was really good. Oh and the view was the best. I would eat here again in a minute.

I visited Neptune's Waterfront Grill & Bar with a large group of colleagues. Pros: The ambiance was upscale and quiet. Our server was attentive and prompt. The food was great! I enjoyed some calamari, oysters, and the lobster macaroni and cheese, all of which I would recommend. Cons: Despite the restaurant being all but abandoned and a large table available... More

Located on the sea front at Pier 39, Neptunes is a nice resturant, situated at the end of the pier and with great views of Alcatraz, the Bay area and of course Golden gate bridge. In terms of the food its good and not a typical tourist traap. Of course it has plenty of fish available, but also more simple... More

We visited this restaurant in pier39 as it had amazing views at the end overlooking the bay. It was very quiet which should have been a clue . We were given a table at the window and the waitress Christie was very nice and welcoming. We ordered our meal. Chowder and a shrimp Caesar salad and a chicken sandwich. The... More

two of us ate lunch on New Year's Eve early afternoon. The restaurant was fairly quiet so we got a table by the window with great views of the bay, Alcatraz and the occasional sea lion :-) My fiend had crab cakes which she said were delicious, and I had the fried fisherman's platter. A little bland if I am... More

We dined here after researching the area restaurants but was disappointed it was dark dirty and empty. The food was the worst we had in sfo as was the service. A 5 percent tax was added to the bill for eating here which we queried as no one else had charged this but the member of staff said it was... More

Fantastic location service and food. Our table was by window overlooking the SF Bay and Alcatraz. Heavy winds closed the bay that day so the wave action was fun to watch. Food was generous portions and reasonably priced.

We arrived at around 9:30 pm on December 31st, 2014. Hostess was very polite and mentioned that the waiting time was around 30 to 35 minutes. Indeed, at the end of the 30 minutes, we were called and directed to our table. We waited for approximately 10 minutes until the waiter stopped at our table to take our order. We... More

So after good I have heard about this place, from being sat at about 7pm on a Sunday (12/28/14) and waited about 12 minutes to be checked up on and asked for drinks. No bread was brought to our table, but seeing it on every other table, I presumed it was something you get when you sit down. For plates... More
