    Great views at sunset, love the appetizer options, and the elderflower martini are amazing. Make sure to get a table by the windows.

    Their Halibut Fish & Chips is out of this world- so much flakier and tender than Cod- Try the Crab Cake on Succotash pesto-Sauce- Hmm and what a View! We always get their artichoke dip to begin.

    Their sushi is fresh from the bay and surprising really good. Their pork chop is good as well. Nice spot to take on a date

    Your vehicles are not safe here. If anything is visible your windows WILL be broken and you WILL lose your stuff.

    Great view of SF out over the water. Great craft beer, sushi, raw bar, good prices. What more could you ask for

    Kind of pricey, but great for special occasions. Definitely make a reservation, and definitely try the clam chowder and the prime rib.

    Happy or "social hour" is a really good deal ($5 wine?? Whaaa) but wow that salted caramel martini for dessert was not.

    I loved the halibut cheeks off the specials menu. Also enjoyed the buttery jalapeño cornbread and the truffle-infused mashed potatoes. Plus, check out the sweet painting of Cal's Play. Go Bears!

    The ribs were fall off the bone good, but if you dont like spicy hot food, ask for another side -i loved the indian couscous, but Kris' mouth was burning. (Good excuse to get more of their focaccia!)

    Get the Artichoke Dip, you won't regret it. Also one of the best Cesaer salads ever.

    Amazing view, nice interior, but food is a joke. Oysters Rockefeller were overcooked, so the consistency was way off. Fish and chips review: chips = garlicky and great. Fish = 2 chewy & tiny filets.

    Been going here with my grandparents since I was a child. Make a reservation and request a window seat, the views are well worth it.

    Stick to the seafood! The other entrees are decent but not quite worth the price IMO.

    Here's a good tip: DON'T EAT HERE! Unless of course you like cold tasteless food and rancid crab. However if those tickle your fancy by all means dine here and enjoy the ensuing food poisoning.

    Attentive waiters, but mediocre food and lame drinks. The 25 for $25 wine special (bottle service only) saved the day, but it was the views of the city that made up for it all.
