“Poor service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

It's almost funny. All these "bad" reviews sums up my experience as well.

Service: Pushy server, felt as though he didn't want us there, auto grat was added..for some reason. The manager or owner, I'm not sure what her title was was openly fighting with a server. I feel like she could of been a little more professional than that.
Food: Not great. Over priced. Hot, Stale bread was given.
Atomsphere: Small, candle lit, I agree with others... there was a weird smell in there. It was an uncomfortable experience to say the least with the pushy service, auto grat and professional manager.

Overall, it wasn't good, I would Not recommend it and I will never go back there.

“Very overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

The dining room is charming and romantic. The drinks were fine - Carmel martini followed by white wine. The.bread was not very warm and slightly dry. Our appetizers were just ok. The lobster bisque was truly just tomato soup with a few pieces of lobster in it. We couldn't get past the overwhelming tomato flavor. The scallop margharitta had a good flavor with pieces on mango bit the scallops were very small and not real flavorful. The special was a combo of shellfish for two. Almost all of it was overcooked and on the dry side - even with drawn butter. The price of the special was not listed and I should have asked. Way too expensive for what was served.

“Good food but Expense Account Prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

I think they trade on the name. We've eaten in the "real" SF Fisherman's Wharf for a lot less money than here.
The food was really good, but they certainly know how to charge for it (particularly the wine - $45 plus tax and upwards).
Only go if you have deep pockets, or an understanding employer.

“Nice Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

I wanted to go to Barbarians but the Mrs. was after fish. The sauces were surprisingly good and the fish was great. We had salmon with a bourbon glaze and Dover Sole stuffed with crab and lobster. The stuffing was a little bready but the flavors were pretty darn good and the cost was about half. Before 6 on Saturday half price appetizers with a bar order. That turned out to be good deal.
