A very touristy location and look was a turnoff, but we found a lovely restaurant. Prices are reasonable, a happy hour special on drinks (two marvelous draft beers @ $4.00 !) and a range of prices for entrees. The food and service were excellent. There...More

Wife and I had dinner on a Monday night. Since it was very chilly outside, we ate our dinner inside. The food was very good and the waitress was so nice and helpful.

Lovely to sit outside under a large umbrella on a sunny day in SF! However, given the traffic on The Embarcadero it is also very noisy with buses, etc. But there is good people watching! Varied menu but fish and chips had an off taste...More

Pros: When I visited, the restaurant was quiet, even though it was a weekend, so I was able to get a seat outside. There are umbrellas if you don't want to be too much in the sun. The service was very attentive and the waiters...More

Good basic selections of food and beverage. Great place for a lunch break when in the area. Outdoor patio on a nice day makes for a pleasant mealtime and fun people watching. Loud and delightfully casual.

We enjoyed sitting out on the patio and having a glass of wine with appetizers. It is a central location to watch people.

While working downtown, I had the opportunity to visit MarketBar several times. both at the beginning and end of the day. For a businessperson's breakfast and the chance to talk quietly, it's a good spot - quiet and out of the hustle-bustle. It's also fun...More

The food was better than I had expected. Flatbreads (both asparagus and pancetta) were very good. Crispy crust and flavorful toppings. Corned beef sandwich with macaroni salad was also good. My only complaint would be the prices. It did not seem like a good buy.
