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

    Bring your belongings with you. Two cars were broken into when I was there for dinner.

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

    Nice view on the bay. Food acceptable, but do not expect more

    Vincent Baeyens · November 20, 2014

    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

    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.

    Jay A. · January 20, 2013
  • Aaron K.

    In a word: wow! Great views, service and food. Had the flatiron. Incredible.

    Terrible service - so slow...

    Constantine Hallax · November 23, 2012
  • Byron W.

    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.

    Eat in the bar if you don't want to wait for a table.

    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.

    Willard Wheaton Davis · August 13, 2012
  • Alison S.

    Key Lime pie...ya gotta have it. Oh and the view is nice too. :)

    Alison Stripling · July 1, 2012

    awesome view of the city .. good place to take your parents when they visit

    Gabriel Guenette · June 19, 2012
  • Damien O.

    The bbq smoked prawns are the best i have ever tasted

    Damien Oyobio · December 18, 2011
  • Ali T.

    Great view. Prefer brunch over lunch/dinner. Get the french toast.

    Ali Thanawalla · December 1, 2011
  • Milo R.

    If you get the prime rib make it medium.

    Milo Ricafranca · August 26, 2011
  • Elaine K.

    The bread pudding was very good but the mojitos are the real deal!

    Elaine Keightley · August 13, 2011
  • James J.

    Chef made every disk to excellence, even the ones we requested that weren't on the menu.

    James Johnson · August 12, 2011
  • Emily P.

    Best Key Lime Pie!

    Emily Parker · July 3, 2011
  • Floss B.

    Go for brunch and get the fried rice and grapefruit mimosa.

    Floss Berg · June 18, 2011
  • Jan P.

    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.

    Jan Plass · June 5, 2011
  • Rigardt G.

    Went there for coffee and cake. Delicious!

    Rigardt Graaff · May 15, 2011
  • Sophie S.

    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.

    Sophie Shafter · March 28, 2011
  • Paul A.

    The food is superb as always, but the service is incredibly slow

    Paul Ark · February 13, 2011
  • Michelle G.

    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!)

    Michelle Girasole · January 30, 2011
  • Mike H.

    Great view, but don't expect much from the food. They served my group cold soup.

    Mike Huynh · January 20, 2011

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

    Ask for Yao the waiter he is awesome

    Sarah Mcmillen · November 26, 2010
  • Kris V.

    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!

    Kris Vera-Phillips · November 7, 2010
  • Nathaniel C.

    Horrible service. The only nice part was the venue

    Nathaniel Carroll · September 19, 2010

    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!

    Tolle Aussicht auf die Skyline von San Francisco. Im Barbereich gibt es eine extra Karte mit preislich fairen kleinen Gerichten. 👍
