I was staying at the Fairmont Heritage on Ghirardelli square. Lori's looked like fun. Lot's of period decor from the '50's. As this shop sits so prominently in the Square, I expected quality that was at least on the field of that particular game. Now, I was alone and just wanted a quick bite before heading out with my companions... More

This for me was like stepping back into the 60's. It's a smallish diner yet spacious. The reception area had a half sawn of yellow taxi cab in it, quite cool. We had a view of the water and ships on it, loved that. The waiter was quick to serve us and the food came out promptly. We had their... More

Stopped here one evening for a quick meal. The diner wasn't busy, but not surprising as located next to Ghiradelli Square and not easily seen. The service and food were good. Decorated in a 50's style and was clean and comfortable.

Stopped here for lunch with a view of the bay. Signature burger was very good and came pretty fast. Service was prompt and view from table was great. Cheaper than some of the nearby restaurants with similar views but the food is less fancy.

Simple diner in Ghirardelli Square serving burgers, fries, sandwiches etc. Slightly overpriced for the food on offer but great views over San Francisco Bay.
