So-so Food

First time to eat at Lori's Diner and it was a disappointment. Not that the food is bad, it was not just what we expected. Food was okay.

You really couldn't ask for a more prime location in Ghirardelli Square!, and the neon sign and 50's styling is spot-on, but at the end of the day when eating out for a meal, the food must be something delicious or at least good. I can't even give this an average rating, because for the price, it must be better... More

Wonderful old fashion type of US diner from 50's but with modern food. Large portion size. Clean and proficient service. Food was alright.

I don't usually write reviews, but there was something about our waitress (Susan, Suzanne?) that reminded me of my Aunt Fina. I adored her since she greeted us. Very nice lady. The french toast was awesome!!! Kudos to the kitchen staff. I'm so glad we stopped here. :)

We were looking for a quick lunch that was not on Fisherman's Wharf, and stumbled upon Lori's Diner. The food was good and the view was exceptional. The service was good and the prices up to par with everything we had experienced in the city. We definitely will go back the next time we are in San Francisco.

My wife and I stopped by for breakfast after spotting the diner the evening before. Not many options, but food was plentiful and hit the spot to get the day going. Service was good and the view even better. I would return for lunch or dinner if we have the chance.

This restaurant is in Ghirardelli Square, some of the tables have a beautiful view of the wharf. We ate the tuna melt, cheeseburger, and caesar salad, with milkshakes. The service can be a bit slow, some servers are working very hard while others idle. The food is tasty though.

Our first day in SF we wanted the classic American diner - this fits the bill - great collection of antiques and memorabilia - had chowder which was not great - half sandwich was on poor quality bread and not very generous. Glad we didn't have a full meal. View is great but there are many other places with great... More
