We visited La Mar Cebicheria Peruana again this weekend after attending the Zenfest. The food here is outstanding, and the service is superior. The restaurant is located in the Embarcadero area of San Francisco within walking distance of the Hyatt Regency.

I have to make a point clear here. I went there for New Year's Eve. The food was great and our attendant was perfect. But as an event the overall was middle to poor, perhaps too expensive. If you needed a restroom there was a...More

We were used to great restaurants from Gastón Acurio in Peru or Chile but this one doesn't come close. Pisco Sour (they should at least get that right) was a disaster, the rest I don't even remember. Local seafood restaurants are much better. I really...More

First time to this place, the food is simply spectacular. Everything was great. Very inventive cuisine. Big emphasis on seafood. Lots of ceviche and Japanese/Peruvian inspired dishes. Great cocktails too. The location is great, right on the waterfront, near the ferry building. Service was discreet...More

Once a favorite, this place has sadly gone downhill. The menu selection has been reduced to the boring basics, while the price has tripled. Quite the letdown from the family of restaurants created by chef Gaston Acuria.

We've been here about half a dozen times over the past years, usually with friends, family, or to celebrate something. The ceviches are fresh and flavorful with a fair number of choices. Generally when we eat here, we have ceviche and the anticuchos (small plates)...More

The Corkage Fee for 1 bottle of Wine is $25.00. Have a great time and I suggest going to Happy Hour in the Bar and the drinks and wine is at a great price.
