“Too fast, too expensive”
Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

We had our Thanks Giving meal here this evening, it was only just "nice".
We arrived for our booking 10 mins late and were seated rapidly. We placed our order for the set meal and at the same time as our drinks arrived, so did our entrees. I hadn't even finished my salad when the main courses arrived..the food was ok but thats it.
5 minutes after the mains plates were taken the pumpkin pie arrived.
We paid $29.99 for this and were out of there in 40 minutes (this was with my husband drawing his beer out for 10 mins!)
This was not what i was expecting and i was sorely disapointed!

“Good but not great.”
Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

Had 2 meals there. Dinner and lunch and food was good but not great. I would probably not return. We were told we were set up for Thanksgiviing lunch at 11:15 AM ON Thanksgiving day only to find out that they were not serving until noon. Very deceiving. Would not return!

“NIce place for an outdoor brunch”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Lots of choices, reasonable (not cheap) prices, and it's fun sitting out on the Embarcadero on a warm Sunday morning.

My friends and I had an excellent dinner at Perry's. We started out with the buffalo wings, which were done perfectly! Crispy, hot, salty, an delicious! I ate the spaghetti and meatballs and my friends shared the roasted chicken with roasted new potatoes. Each of the dishes were plated well and were made with high quality ingredients. The dishes were well seasoned and very, very tasty. We all shared a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie sandwich (with vanilla ice cream) for dessert! YUM! Our waiter was super sassy and amazing and I will definitely eat at Perry's if I am ever in the embarcadero area of SF again.
