We ate breakfast here since we were in the area. Seating was very limited as there isn't a lot of room for groups. We were able to snag the only group table they had after waiting maybe 15 min or so. Service was ok though the meal itself was not exactly great, but it wasn't terrible either...just ok...typical diner quality... More

It's a Burger joint. This one is in Ghirardelli Square. The BLT was also quite good. Expect prices to be a bit high. But all in all the service was good ad was the food.

While vacationing with my son and his friend (both 18), we were looking for a place to eat that wouldn't break my wallet. While this place was a bit pricey, it was the only restaurant that didn't have at least a half hour wait (this should have been our first clue) - we were able to walk right in and... More

We were looking for a relatively quiet place to eat near Ghirardelli square and Lori's was the least loud so we went in. We were seated quickly by rather humourless staff and drinks quickly followed. The style of the place is a retro 50's diner and it has a nice outlook over the marina. Feeling like I could almost pull... More

Visited on a weekday. Arrived just after 1 pm and was seated immediately. Asked our waiter for a glass of water without ice and it was delivered by someone else but with ice. Soon noticed a bug crawling over the napkin dispenser at the table. The chips from the fish and chips was good. Fresh and crisp and not overly... More

Stopped here for dinner on Thursday, 7/14, wasn't too busy at the time but it took staff a while to come by and take drink orders and greet us. Food is typical diner fare.

Staff wasn't really happy the day we were there! Had to ask a few times for things. Food was ok, nothing different. The place is surprising well decorated.

We visited the Lori's in Ghirardelli Square and really enjoyed it. The food was very good with large portions. The atmosphere was fun, 50's style. Service could have been faster. It took longer than it should have for us to be greeted or get drink orders taken. Otherwise we enjoyed Lori's.

Beautiful view! Fun place. Service was slow, but burgers were good. Could have been cleaner, but in a busy, touristy area so it's probably hard to keep up.

Loris was a good choice for breakfast. The food was good though nothing special. Basic menu but again, nothing special. The food was well prepared, the service was very good, the restaurant had lots of atmosphere, there was a nice view of the bay, and the location was great.
