restaurant on the top level of Pier 39 on the Embacadaro in San Francisco. The view and ambience are very good. Ask for a window seat for a great view of the Bay, Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate Bridge. We had very good service. The food was typical for a tourist venue, small servings and poor quality. We ordered... More

I had the sesame crusted ahi tuna, which was delicious. My table was by the window, looking out at the bay and Alcatraz Island. A wonderful evening - I want to go back

Neptune's is a huge restaurant on Fisherman's Wharf with an absolute fantastic view. 3 of us ordered something called Neptune's seafood something or other with scallop, shrimp and white fish. When our meal arrived it was all deep fried - quite the shock. We were all under the impression it would not have been deep fried. No, problem, no worries,... More

People have mentioned Alcatraz and ferry views. We were delighted to be seated with a view of the sea lions. (My husband loves them.) We came for the convenience of the location, and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Not gourmet quality, but better than expected in such a touristy location. I had the three-soup sampler; I'm... More

Given the touristy flair of Fisherman's Wharf, we expected to have mediocre food and service. We were surprised! Neptune's had great fresh seafood and wonderful staff. NO WAIT! We met a sous chef outside on his break, and asked him what he recommended-- he suggested the swordfish and anything with mussels or clams. We followed his recommendations and were not... More

Neptune's serve seafood with as stunning view. They do so quite well and stylish with white tablecloth and big wine glasses. But You pay for all that; not that Neptune's is horrible expensive. But I would believe, that You could get the same quality food for a bit lower price elsewhere in San Francisco. But You wouldn't get that stunning... More

Got together with a friend I haven't seen for awhile and we happened upon this restaurant at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco and decided to try it out. We did not have a reservation of course and that was not a problem because we were invited in to have dinner and was given a nice table and had a wonderful... More
