    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

    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!

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

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

    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!)

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

    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.

    Amazing food! Highly recommended! I've had the crab artichoke sandwich, pear walnut salad, pulled pork and fish and chips. All amazing! Great view and prices too!

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

    The views of hte bay and bridges from the restaurant bar are the perfect way to enjoy dinner and a Mount Gay Rum cocktail.

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

    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.

    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.
