First of all, dining on a cliff cut out of rock with waves crashing beneath you.....seriously?! Wow, what an experience! I hosted a client dinner for 10 people at El Farallon and all of my guests were blown away. We dined here on the last night, which was defintely the perfect way to end a trip with a bang. The atmosphere was absolutely amazing. There just happened to be a full moon the night we dined at El Farallon, which was unbelievable. The food was all served family style, and everything was very fresh and prepared in a very healthy manner. We were a bit tired of eating Mexican food at this point in our trip, so the superbly prepared grilled vegetables, seafood and steak really hit the spot. The crab soup was to die for, they brought you a bowl with just lump seafood in it and then poured the soup over the top, so you could be sure you were getting a good amount of crab - the presentation was great. I think the menu changes every night here, since they prepare what was fresh, but we had head-on shrimp, sea bass, clams, some other kind of fish, steak, grilled zuchinni, asparagus,tomatoes and cilantro rice. The desserts were also superb, although what the called "creme brulee" seemed more like a flan, but it was delicious. A very memorable experience all around, and in my opinion, the steep price to dine at this restaurant is well worth it!
