If you want a meal on Fisherman’s Wharf of a unique seafood meal with crab this is the place to go. A good meal covering all the bases for two from; raw oysters and vodka shots, to clam chowder, ceaser salad, cracked whole garlic crab,...and seafood risotto will change at you 10% less than other places and taste better.More

My husband and I made a last minute couples trip to San Francisco. An acquaintance told us to check out Pier 39 on our way out of town to Napa. So glad we took his advise and checked out the area. Touristy, but easy access...to a secure parking deck next to the pier. Fog House had great reviews on TripAdvisor. We were able to get I. Without reservations. Restaurant appeared clean. Staff was wearing masks , friendly and responsive to needs. We had calamari, chowder in a sour dough bread bowl, salad and Napa Ridge Cabernet…everything was yummy. Food was served quick and at perfect temp. Bonus view of Alcatraz right behind us. Excellent way to get introduced to the area.More

We had dinner here on Labor Day and despite large crowds, the food , the service and the views were outstanding. They strictly enforced covid protocols which made us feel at ease inside the restaurant. There was a short wait. The cocktails were excellent. Best...Bombay Gin Martini I ever had. The seafood was fresh and perfectly prepared. The Ahi Tuna was really good and highly recommended. We started with the mussel fries, also highly recommended. The chowder and the Scallop and Crab risotto were perfect. Service was friendly and very efficient and professional. We never felt rushed or ignored. Its comfortable with great views of the harbor. Make sure you leave room for dessert. Its tough for a restaurant not to slip a little on a crowded holiday, but Fog Harbor did it seamlessly and with style. This is not a cheap meal, but it was worth every penny. One of the highlights of our visit to SF.More

We chose Fog Harbor for a birthday lunch after reading reviews and 2 locals recommended it. We got there about 2:30 on a weekday so we got a wonderful table by the window. We all ordered scallops with risotto and had the crab cake appetizer....The food and drinks were wonderful. The view alone is worth going for. The server we had was fairly young and not very good. He didn’t bring us bread and when we asked about it, he said that he was supposed to bring it before our food but that since our appetizer came so quickly that he didn’t think we would want it. We were quite dumbfounded. We also had to wait on a 2nd drink. I saw other servers giving better service. The restaurant was not busy so I think we got an inexperienced server. Despite the service I would go back if I ever come back to San Francisco.More

I was on a business trip and dining alone so I got seated without a wait at the bar. Room was comfortable with beautiful views of the water. Lively atmosphere, comfortable for families, singles and those on a date. I started with fresh oysters which...were excellent! Then, on recommendation, I decided to try a cup of their "famous" clam chowder and I had it topped with some crab meat. YUM! Also very tasty and the cup was sufficient since I was having a few of the smaller plates. I completed my dinner with the crab cakes. Also very tasty and all 3 of my choices I would certainly enjoy again and recommend.More

We were on a trip to San Francisco and this restaurant was recommended to us. Thing started out well with a very good barrell aged Manhattan. From there it went down hill. We waited a long time for the meal to come out and when...it did it was cold. We could not find out waiter who basically dissapeared so we stopped someone else who go a manager who took our meal away to have it redone. No one offered us another drink or anything else to compensate for the inconvenience. Then out waiter finally shows up... with a desert menu. Apparently no one told him our meal had been sent back. We finally go the meal, this time hot, and it was good but the wine pour seemed a little light to us. The waiter came back to see how things were and I told him good but we could use more of the wine and he said that was entirely up to us. All in all it was not a great experience and I would not go again.More

We visited this restaurant based on the high ratings on Yelp. It lived up to the hype and exceeded our expectations. Typically restaurants at tourist destinations are not of this caliber. The food here is exceptional. The dishes are delicious! We recommend the cioppino and...the shrimp avocado cesar salad. The location is right on the pier with views of Alcatraz and the SF bay. Service is top notch.More
