The shrimp cake was amazing, the pork cutlet and soba soup also very good. We were pleased with our quick snack from this little restaurant in the ferry building. We ate cafeteria style at the long tables outside. Not sure if they have table service inside.

Table service is slow so I favor their takeout options. Favorites sell out quickly because everything is fresh and made in small batches. Sushi us good but nothing extraordinary. Get your carry out and sit on benches on the water.

I come here for healthy salad options, that typically are not the run of the mill offerings you can find in an average deli. There are some seaweed salads, some with mushrooms, and often have a sesame or soysauce based taste. Sometime very good but sometimes you have to wonder who is putting these salads together. I would suggest people... More

We decided to join the queue and purchase lunch at the deli counter. The salmon chowder was hot and extremely tasty, the best I have ever had. My daughter chose the combination plate salad which she watched being freshly prepared. We also shared a dungeness crab croquette, which was very ' meaty' and satisfying. Followed by 2 cold speciality teas.The... More

One of the few if not the only "Delica's" not in Japan. Kind of a Japanese version of a Deli with delicious take out lunches made with care and the finest ingredients. So tasty and healthy, well-designed and the owners support non-profits so commendations to the management of this fine, reasonably priced eating establishment.

Having lived in San Francisco for 9 years, I have been to Delica many times. Their Bento Boxes are delicious! The green been salad is something I love to eat along with the meet rice and one other salad. The Ferry Building is wildly popular because there are so many delicious options. Plan on a crowd and taking your Bento... More

We have a place in Oakland and consider it worth it to take BART or the Ferry to Delica just for the Wasabi Potato Salad. This place is often very busy, but the line moves quickly and if you can score a bench outside, it's a good day. Containers of food can be taken anywhere, though. Everything else we've ever... More

We popped into here while wandering around the Ferry Building and working up an appetite with everything offer in there. There wasn't a great deal left as it was late in the day but we were tempted anyway. We had pork escalope, minced chicken balls and potato croquettes amongst a couple of other things. It was absolutely delicious and only... More

Food was very different from what I am used to in Australia. It was tasty and my husband enjoyed it but not to my liking. Service was below par and I had difficulty getting a proper explanation of items from the staff. I was very surprised that a tip was still required for this type of to-go venue. Difficult to...

My husband and I were about to take a ferry to Sausalito. We entered the Ferry Building to find a plethora of quick, high-quality eateries. We chose Delica based on what we saw guests eating! There is an open-kitchen where you can see the staff working diligently. We had smoked salmon sushi, a crab cake, and tempura vegetables. It cost... More
