One guy did not smile even once!!! We had sandwiches and fries and that was just okej....the fries was not crispy and the diet coke tasted of chlorine....must be... More

Stopped in for lunch while at Ghiardelli Square. Had a beer and a club sandwich, The service was good. The food was OK. The prices a little high for what you are getting. All in all, what you would expect for where it is and what it is.

We came here because of it's convenient location to the waterfront and because there's a discount voucher for here on the free maps you get all around SF. We ordered milkshakes and shared a club sandwich. The milkshakes were good, the club sandwich was adequate but it didn't taste particularly fresh filled particularly well. Obviously the chef was feeling a... More

We avoided the long queue at the hotel and found this typical diner. Service was friendly and good and food was as expected. Large helpings, good quality, no surprises.

We stopped by for a late lunch, mid-afternoon, after a longer than expected walk along the bay. There were only a couple of tables occupied so we were seated straight away. Apart from the views, the place hasn't got too much to recommend it. The food was "ok" - typically American diner fare, edible but not spectacular in any way.... More

Lori's has moved since our last visit to the city, usurped by Walgreens, and this new location is smaller and lacks some of the charm (as well as the individual juke boxes) of its predecessor. It is still popular, and after 8.00am you are likely to queue for breakfast. But the service is efficient and the food still pretty good... More

We have been to Lori's Diner in the past, and this location used to be extremely crowded. It was fairly empty the night we went, although in the height of tourist season. Our service was really excellent--no complaints at all about the service. The food was good, typical diner fare. We came here because we were tired, hungry, and not... More

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
