Seaglass Restaurant could be my 2018 disappointment of the year...and on so many levels. For starters, the website overhypes the quality of both the food and the ambiance. This eatery is in a gorgeous building in one of SF's prime locations and 2 very important...More

We had a rice bowl, 2 hot dogs and fries, 1 Kambucha, 1 coffee for $62! The rice bowl was the best bet, although the meat had quite a bit of gristle on it. The hot dog bread and the ketchup were awful

We had our lunch during our trip to exploratorium. Food quality and taste is good. Restaurant is bit expansive, mostly due to location. It was pretty crowded due to holiday week.
