The Trident sits on the bay with a view of San Francisco in the distance and Tiburon immediately across the water. This is probably the best set up for waterside dining I have encountered. There is clear glass at the end of the deck as a windbreaker and enough gas heaters to keep guests comfortable on a chilly evening. No jackets needed. There is a selection of well prepared seafood dishes. I enjoyed the sole over spinach and potatoes, My daughter enjoyed the fish and upgraded truffle chips. The clam chowder was fairly routine. Wines by the glass were limited and rather pedestrian. Beer selections were better. This is a good place if you want a tasty but not so memorable meal in a very memorable setting.

Went for Happy Hour last night and walked into a piece of history. Lived the retro look of the 70's and Happy Hour was nice. Sat at the bar ordered well drinks for $5 and $2 oyster shooters! Yummy! Would definitely come back again. Who wouldn't like the beautiful view either....

We had lunch here on a busy friday afternoon in sept , weather was glorious warm and sunny.
We waited about 40 mins on a table outside . We were glad we waited as the views over San Francisco was fabulous , the food was lovely , I had fish tacos , which was great and huge portion ,coming from Scotland. We had a bottle of wine to share which was lovely while we waited on our table at the bar .The service was good and value on average for San Francisco.
Would def come back on my next visit to San Fran, just for the views !!

We had lunch on a Saturday and, thankfully, arrived at 11:15, as the large water front deck was packed by noon. And for good reason. The view was, of course spectacular...and so was the food, which was a nice surprise. I had the vegetarian trilogy sampler which was an herbivore's slice of heaven. It was both delicious and beautifully presented! The guys had the fish and chips, which also got rave reviews. I definitely recommend the lavender lemon drop. The service was friendly, prompt and professional. A real find!

Decided we wanted a view and boy did we get one. Sat outside for lunch, amazing view of San Francisco Bay. Food was great. Even if you can't get a table outside windows still give great view. Pleasant staff.
