My family visited here whilst staying on hotel round corner. Lovely floor to ceiling windows overlooking the bag - the perfect view. Wonderful food especially breakfast plus their own made cherry coke is lovely. The staff make a fuss of the children and have good music playing which makes for a lovely atmosphere, a favourite place of ours here in... More

Lori's is located upstairs in Ghirardelli Square giving perfect views of the bay between Alcatraz to the right and the Golden Gate to the left. The diner is kitted out with retro furnishings and looks like a 50's diner. Lovely, bright and airy. We arrived on a Sunday morning around 9am for breakfast and it was pretty much empty. Table...

Lori's Diner is located in Ghiradelli Square with great views of the San Francisco Bay. The décor of the diner is classic fun diner kitsch. Too bad the food did not match up to the view and atmosphere. The lunch was not very good. Cold French fries, dry fried fish that fell apart and bland mushy tuna fish salad on... More

I waited to get dinner on the 4th of July until 6pm. I was desperate to find something open for most restaurants were closed so I headed to Ghiradelli Square because the crowd was gathering for the concerts and fireworks. Lori's happened to have a counter stool open. The penne pasta I ordered was pretty good but it took a... More

Kids absolutely loved it. The furnishing, the background music, the menu. I liked it - portions were huge & beer was cold. My "popcorn shrimp" was pretty uninspiring but filled a gap after long day sight seeing. It's a great location with great views. I am pleased we went because we had fun

50's themed atmosphere with good sandwiches, burgers, and vanilla cokes. Beautiful view of the bay while you dine. Good service, clean atmosphere, and outdoor dining available.$78 (includes tip) for a family of four, four meals, four drinks, no appetizers. Pricing is in line or better than average for the area.

We were a family of four adults. The menu was quite diverse and we ordered fried chicken,a burger, a salad and a cheese & ham sandwich with fries. The service was very good and most of the food was good quality. I was disappointed with the cheese and ham sandwich which was quite tiny and rather ordinary. One other gripe... More

After a busy day walking around SF we we're just looking for something to eat at a reasonable price. Food was basically frozen supermarket food fried or cooked some other way. The pictures on the menu do not resemble in any way what is delivered on the plate. Reasonable price, ok, I'll give them that, but quality, no way! Place... More

Dropped in here for breakfast having seen it the night before. Great location, overlooking San Francisco Bay. It's a diner, and it does what it says on the tin. Fun atmosphere, fast, pleasant servers, really good food. Well worth a visit.

Were staying at the nearby Holiday Inn and saw this place while out on a morning stroll. Quirky, good views across the bay, and decent breakfast menu. My partner was feeling lousy and just wanted something bland/plain, the waitress provided a selection of toast on different breads which was just the job. I had an omelette with extra bacon &...
