Good location in South San Francisco, good menu selection with meat and seafood items. The quality of the food however was very mediocre at best. I know an old mussel when I eat one. Even something as simple as fried calamari were soaked in oil and not exactly fragrant. Bummer.

This is a Peruvian restaurant, specializing in seafood. It's a little difficult to find, because there isn't a lot of signage. It's in the lobby of The Inn at Oyster Point. The food and service were fantastic! There's also a good view of the water from every seat in the restaurant. We got here during a busy weekday lunch rush,... More

We chose this place because it was $$ and close to our hotel. I had grilled salmon with delicious risotto. My husband had an excellent pork chop, our friends got the crusted red snapper and and a steak salad. We all really liked our meals. The wine selection was good as well. Afterwards we strolled down to the waterfront. Highly... More

My wife and I were looking for a restaurant for seafood, but because we'd had a large lunch we weren't that hungry. This spot was near or hotel and the menu looked promising so we went without a reservation and were seated right away. The restaurant bills itself as Peruvian themed, but we went for the seafood. We had a... More

We were staying here a single night doing the park and fly program and decided to give this restaurant which is located in the hotel a try. Restaurants are scarce in this So. SF area which are mostly high tech companies. The food turned out to be very good and of good portions I thought for the moderate prices. I... More

We were in San Francisco for a flight out the following day. This restaurant was a mile from our hotel. Staff was friendly. We were seated on the deck and order drinks and appetizers. The view was wonderful. But it was a little chilly. So we asked to be seated inside and we were. The food was good and the... More

The food here was pretty good but the view was spectacular. We came during happy hour so they had $5 wines which were very good. The risotto was excellent!

We stopped here for a last meal before flying home to the UK. On paper looked great. The staff hadn't got a clue, confusion over menus. Wines on the menu not available. Then running out after two bottles. Courses coming out staggered, I had mine and finished for 10 minutes before the rest of the table. Half of the deserts... More

We came for happy hour a couple times here while staying at the Inn at Oyster Point. They had some snack specials we tried- fish tacos, filet mignon sliders and they were pretty good but not memorable. I would probably rate it average if only based on happy hour fare.

Glad we had reservations they were very busy, that's a good sign. We sat by the window that overlooks the water. Wait staff very pleasant & helpful. We had Fried Calamari excellent! Crispy not greasy and tender good tarter sauce. We had filet sliders which were good too. The menu is pretty good and they do have daily specials. If... More
