    Great food. But service could be friendlier. Parking validation only for lot in front of restaurant.

    The BEST chowder on the wharf hands down. The crab cakes are my absolute favorite. The crab pasta is also fantastic. Love the old school charm!

    The manager opened the bar for my friends and I before they were actually open. Superb customer service from Fidel.

    The food was Great! We had a half crab and shrimp sandwiches. Service wasn't the best, we sat in the very back against the window. Probably will never eat there again, but glad we tried it.

    It was okay. Clam Chowder was tasty but $$$. It was a bit breezy and they would not turn on the radiant heaters. Appetizer came second go figure. I would not return here.

    Great service, good food (pasta al pesto is a nice choice) and a view to the Golden Gate Bridge (upstairs).

    Get the table in the back with the view of the Harbour. This is one if the first restaurants on the Wharf in SF est. 1935.

    Avoid the upstairs dining at any cost. They spend more on the atmosphere and look of the place than the quality of the food

    Best Food on the Wharf. It has all of the San Francisco eats that you want to try. Crab Cake is to die for. The Market Crab is amazing. The Cioppino is crazy good and the drinks are fantastic.

    Free Sourdough bread, whole crab, two seafood pastas = $85 excl tip. Mediocre food. Nice view of fisherman's wharf.

    Not recommended!! Service is beyond slow! Never got a drink refill. Waited 30 minutes just for a check. Halibut was cold and tough and veggies hard as a rock. Food is as old as the establishment.

    The shrimp dishes are very fresh and good. Don't forget that Bay shrimp are really small tiny shrimp.

    Definitely worth checking out for the gift shop that time forgot, the custom fisherman carpet, the diorama and the upstairs bar but skip the chowder. Go to Musee Mecanique after.

    Don't get the Sautéed crab legs. Market price and not tasty. Great service. Overpriced and fair food.

    Been coming here for 20 years... the decor and menu might be the same, the food quality certainly isn't. Clam chowder was terrible (compared to the one they serve at Le Boudin), swordfish was just ok.

    Landmark aside, the menu and food preparation haven't changed much since I first went... back in '85 (age 3). Not that that's a bad thing. The spumoni is always good and the booze isn't watered down,

    El lugar es muy lindo "fancy" y la sopa de almeja es rica, pero en el bolo de pan no es contundente, ademas es caro

    İçerisi halı kaplı ve girdiğiniz an ağır, kötü bir koku var. Fiyatlar biraz yüksek ama manzarası harika. Yemekler fena değil, porsiyonlar gayet doyurucu...
