Really enjoyed our meal here. The pizzas and pasta are great, I had the margherita and my husband had the lasagna. Can't fault them, they were delicious. We also had an order of the garlic sourdough bread, but be advised they are very generous portions, we'd probably have been better with a half portion between the two of us. Service... More

Had lunch at Swiss Louis on Saturday. The place was busy but we still had great service. They have the best Italian in that area, great wine list, very generous size beer mugs, and the staff is excellent. Will definitely go again when back in SF.

Waiter asked if we wanted water. We said yes assuming like in any other restaurant they bring you tap water. Instead she brought bottle of Aqua Panna which she charged us $6.50 (this reflected on her tip). if you take deep fried calamari as appetizers then don't order anything else, is a massive plate. Pizza Margherita... they just don't know... More

Ordered lasagna, luke warm become cold quickly. Overpriced. But the real kicker comes when you get the bill. They add on 6.5% for paying for the staffs health care insurance. This is on top of the state tax. I know they had to charge this as it's the law, but other places charged 3.5 or 4% and NOT 6.5% They... More

This was my least favorite and regretful stop on our 7 day trip in the area. Very over priced and service made one feel like they where doing you a favor. They seem to cater to large groups and since they are a already committed everyone else does not matter. Food was just so so and over priced. Now we... More

Obviously this is a restaurant that primarily caters for tourists and people mostly go there for the view with the sea lions and ocean rather than the quality of the food. I had fish and chips with beer while my wife had the vegetarian pizza. Neither of us really enjoyed it much; it was pretty average actually. Our server was... More

My brother, his wife and I ate there last night. View of the city and the area around Fishermans Warf was great as was the service. But my seafood pasta was not good and our meal wasn't cheap we were almost the only ones eating there on a Monday night. Michael of Santa Fe

It was our first night in central San Francisco and were looking for a nice place to eat on The Pier. We were unsure of prices until we actually sat down and by that point it was too late. There were 5 of us and not one of us had a nice meal. It was all terrible and yet the... More
