I had their corned beef has and my wife had poached eggs, toast and bacon all prepared correctly and served hot.

    Restaurant is open to the lobby of a busy hotel so the noise level is high, but that actually worked for our group of 8. We were able to visit & laugh with our family without worrying about disturbing anyone. We enjoyed the crab cakes, salmon & baked macaroni & cheese. The meal service was very good, however, the waitress disappeared after we paid the dinner bill. We hung around for another 2 hours and had to go up to the bar to get drinks.

    I had a business lunch here with several colleagues. The service was great and there was enough variety so special dietary requirements could be met in an expedient fashion. The open seating meant that sound dissipated so that you could be comfortable in a business conversation. The food arrived in about 10 minutes and was presented well. I will be back here again.

    Dined on 3/11/2014
    I had a fantastic experience planning a 3-hour brunch meeting with the restaurant over the phone. I knew it was an unusual request to host this long meeting, but not totally bizarre in a large downtown hotel, and the whole reason I called was to be sure it would work for them and so they'd be prepared. It was a waste of my time because the staff on the day didn't follow through on any of it. The food was fine. The price was fine. Guests commented on how nice and dramatic the setting is. They also commented that the background music was a little annoying, but we could talk over it. It could have been fantastic, but the confusion and ambivalence of the staff on the day we arrived, despite pre-planning, was frustrating.

    The food was very good... The fish taco's needed a bit more spice. The Knife & Fork bread crust was a bit hard to cut through...need to offer steak knife with this dish. It was delicious however. The service was outstanding... would give it 10 stars if that was an option. Will definately go back.

    Dining at the Eclipse located in the San Francisco Hyatt Regency was quite lovely. However, I think that for the rather pricey meal, $52.00, for three (3) course meal, was a bit too high in price. The restaurant is located in the lobby of the downtown San Francisco hotel, and is a little bit on the on noisey side. Service was very good and staff was very attentive. I think I would like to have seen a more varied menu, with those of a fixed income considered. Remember NOT EVERYONE has a six figure salary!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 12/25/2013
    Made a reservation for Christmas lunch through Open Table. Nice ambience, not too crowded, and quiet even though the restaurant is in the hotel lobby. We waited a while before someone took our order, but at least the server was friendly. The food had great flavor, but the halibut (which was one of their specials) was a bit dry. Everything else we ordered was great. We didn't order dessert because the food took so long, we didn't want to wait another 30 minutes for dessert. Overall a good restaurant with pretty good food, they just need to improve their service. We didn't get any bread, we weren't offered any water or additional drinks until we asked, and no one came to ask how we were doing at any time while we were sitting there.

    Fun place to eat in the main lobby of the Hyatt Regency at the Embarcadero. We went here for my daughter's 13th birthday dinner. Service was a bit slow and waiter was a little hard to understand, but he got all the orders right and even provided a free birthday dessert to my daughter, a nice touch! Food was very good, nothing exceptional but still perfectly fine. There is a great "create your own" option where you pick a main course, a sauce, and two sides. No skimping out either, portions are well filling. Ambiance is great, beneath the strings of lights hanging from the Hyatt ceiling. Also around Christmas time the hotel has a wonderful Christmas village all laid out. Prices are very reasonable as well, would certainly return again!

    Dined on 12/18/2013
    I had a business lunch for the first time at Eclipse with two associates who happened to be women. I walked in with one, and the other came in a few minutes later, chuckling that the host had asked - are you with the couple that came in a few minutes earlier? My only complaint about the meal was that our server twice misunderstood a simple request - directly off the menu - and restated it to be something else, and we eventually just settled for it. I think it was a language barrier rather than inattention.

    We arrived on time and were told we had no reservations, the host refused to look at both printed copy or my phone showing that indeed we had a reservation. He argued and was very rude. He then sat us at the kitchen door and right in front of the buffet so we had patrons moving about and around us our whole meal. this was a breakfast with Santa and we were there an hour before Santa made his way to our table and at the time one of the two children had already left. the host came over to our table 3/4 of the way through our meal and asked if everything was OK I told him no and he said yes it is and walked away. 2 adults and 2 children was $92 without tip. Very expensive and very disappointing

    I have a small group that meets monthly for breakfast at Eclipse. The service is always lacking...just this week, I sat at my table for 10 minutes and not one server offered me coffee, water or anything else. I finally got up to ask the maître de for coffee. When the waiter finally came over, he came with attitude. On every other occasion, the wait staff has been slow to approach the table. The food is fine but the lack of service always detracts from the experience. Perhaps the staff could benefit from more training.

    A friend and I were looking for a place conveniently located near BART. We were worried the prices would be prohibitive considering the location and that it's part of the Hyatt, but we looked up the menu and saw that it's not too bad. Service was prompt and professional. The atmosphere was nice, and the food was very good.

    We didn't see any signage for the restaurant, so we walked into the bar area to ask, didn't realize that the 'dining' area was part of the bar. When we sat down, I handed over a gift certificate & was given just a wine list. After one server took the wine order, another server asked if we were ready & I said that we needed menus in order to know what to order. There was no mention of specials or explanation of the menu. When our main dish arrived, we could tell they did not let the steak rest prior to cutting it & serving it. We felt since we were using a gift certificate, that we didn't get the same level of service. I specifically put on Open Table that this was a Birthday celebration. That was never mentioned once, no candle, etc.

    We ordered off the limited Alcatraz dinner menu. The food was good but the wrong order was delivered to one of three requiring a reorder. The dining area shares space with a bar. The bar was active and noisy. It was difficult to get the attention of the staff. When the meal was completed our server disappeared. It took an additional 1/2 hour to get the bill. The food was over priced for the quality and service. Not recommended.
