Forbes Island Restaurant is one of the most unique dining experiences you will ever have whether you live in the Bay Area or are a visiting tourist. You take a little shuttle boat out to the island itself, which only takes about two minutes, but once you are there, it feels like you are a million miles away from civilization. It has an incredible lighthouse, which we climbed, and which was well worth it. The weather was warm, and the night was crystal clear. The views from the top are breathtaking, and some of the best views of San Francisco we have ever seen. .
It was my husband's birthday, and we had a wonderful table near the fireplace where we could look out the port holes and see the fish swimming, because the restaurant is under water. The ambiance is wonderful and warm, and the restaurant's decor is filled with sailing paraphernalia. The food was an amazing delight. We had a magnificent tasty crab salad, one of the best we've ever had and a savory steak fillet, which was cooked to perfection.The desserts were a slice of heaven, and the service was impeccable. It is hard to believe you are in San Franciso because you really feel you are on a small ship in the middle of the ocean.
This is truly an enchanting, romantic dining experience and a gem of a restaurant. We can't wait to go back. We could not have believed this jewel existed so close to downtown San Francisco.
