Really good hamburgers. But the best thing to order is the asiago fries. It's located under 'Small Plates' but don't let that fool you.

“Noting Special”
Reviewed October 23, 2007

My husband and I ate here on recommendation from the hotel concierge. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant but the food was just ok. I had a filet which was just so-so and my husband had the fish special. He thought that his dish was a bit bland. My dish was served with broccoli which was inedible because they added too much pepper and the mashed potatoes were nothing great. I started the meal with a Cesar salad and my husband with the clam chowder. Both were average. We did have a nice bottle of wine with dinner. We were in and out of the restaurant in under an hour….not the leisurely meal that we were looking for especially at a cost of $125.

“Excellent food - excellent service!”
Reviewed April 22, 2007

We stopped at Fog City Diner on Easter morning this year, for breakfast before we headed back home to SoCal. It was recommended to us by some locals on the streetcar, so we gave it a try. A wonderful surprise! I had a delicious omelette with asparagus and mushrooms, my husband had the steak and eggs. Very good food, excellent atmosphere and great service. A short walk off of the "F" Street streetcar in the Embarcadero area, and because it was such a beautiful morning, we sat outside. Our waitress was very attentive. We truly enjoyed ourselves at Fog City and look forward to returning again.

“A memorable meal”
Reviewed August 24, 2006

We were riding the F-line along the Embarcadero discussing where we wanted to have dinner, when my husband spotted this cute little (very snazzy) diner. We made a spur of the moment decision to go there and got off the trolley. The menu wasn't quite what we expected - a bit more upscale than what you think of as "diner food", but they did have hamburgers (which was what we'd hoped for) so we stayed for dinner. A hamburger and fries was about $12, which is a bit much, but I must say it was a truely delicious meal. It was on a wonderful bun and the meat was flavorable and very good. The condiments were served separately so you could put on what you liked. Mayo was not included, but when we asked if it was available, it was quickly brought. The fries were outstanding. I'm not a big fry lover, but these were not your normal fries. The outsides were crisp and they didn't feel or taste oily as is so often the case. The whole meal was memorable - which is weird to say for a hamburger. They did have a few other options for around $10, but mostly the entrees were in the $15 - $20 range. We went early and by the time we finished our meal there was a line of people waiting. It's located at 1300 Battery Street right where it runs into The Embarcadero. They have a website [-----------]- .
