    Had a wonderful time celebrating with friends! Everything was perfect, just had 1 mishap but the manager named Seth was so attentive and managed the situation with excellence! I HAVE BEEN COMING HERE 25 YEARS.. this was my 26th. The calamari is always excellent, linguini with fresh clams perfectly done well, not full of butter and greasy like other places. Excellent sourdough bread, piping hot and perfectly baked. Petrale Sole oh so tasty, nestled in a bed of green spinach and soft luscious fingerling potatoes! The best flavorful clam chowder to die for! OH SO GOOD, Then came the dessert to end and top off the delicious dinner! My 2 favorites.. Creme Brulee so delicate and such a soft smooth texture that just melts in your mouth! The other dessert was my 2nd favorite! A Blondie..that consists of a crusted baked golden batter with a blast of exciting flavors and texture that burst into your mouth.. ah so heavenly! I must say one thing the food here is always consistent and even though I commute all the way from Union City and cross the Bay Bridge..well it is all worth it for everything I have mentioned..Excellent food, Ambiance,Atmosphere,View Location and The Manager is just so great! I also forgot to mention I had a hi ball for my cocktail, was great too but next time I will mention to put it in a taller glass that is why they call it a hi ball. Well I feel very happy to say it was such a pleasure to meet Seth the manager and with further ado will continue to return as I do every year! Thank you for such a great lunch! Fog harbor fish house is one of my favorite Restaurants! Be back for more!

    Great experience and great service from our waitress. Had seafood platter w/1/2 crab, shrimp, mussels, and clams w/ lots of garlic butter sauce. $36 for 1, but plenty to eat. Very nice calamari app w/ great olio or special Jalapeno olio. Great large lobster tail, very large hamburger (yeh I know, at a fish house) enough for two meals, and a loaded crab salad w/ ceaser dressing. Nice view just about anywhere.

    With only one night in SF we wanted our dinner to be very special (Oct.31st). It is right in tourist trap zone but the resto is upstairs with a very nice sitting area by a fireplace. The resto is huge but about half was closed off (we could only get a reservation for 9:30, so that was a bit frustrating). The waiter was quite efficient but in a huge rush, backing away before we could finish our sentences. The cocktail of the evening (a Moscow Mule) was very good, fresh hot bread was served and my appetizer (the poke) was good. My husband had the stuffed lobster tail which was really lacking in meat and not even close to worth the cost of $35. Really overrated from our perspective, especially with the copious options for fantastic food in SF.

    Was in San Francisco with the family for my husband's work conference. Wanted to enjoy the water view as much as we could so we booked a reservation at the Fog Harbor Fish. The appetizers were excellent - had the special crab and risotto fritters and the clams. Entrees were ok - had the Cioppino and steak (I know it was a seafood place). Cioppino had good flavor and fresh tasting seafood - the steak was only ok. Overall a great experience at a tourist trap restaurant.

    Had a great view, an awesome meal and really amazing service from Niessa. All of the staff seemed very pleasant and looked happy to be there. (Nothing worse than coming out for a nice dinner and getting servers who are unhappy and letting it show) While it's in a "touristy" area, I would not hesitate to come back here. We were celebrating a birthday, and it was perfect.

    I was in town with my girlfriend for the Nike Women's half marathon. So we wanted some seafood a few days prior to the race. The meal did not disappoint - we started with the clam chowder, which was spot on. I had the seafood mixed grill - salmon, swordfish, shrimp, broccoli, red pepper, and garlic mashed potatoes. She had a special - lobster and squash ravioli. Both of us thought our food was very good. I tasted hers and was impressed. We passed on dessert, simply because it didn't fit her food requirements pre race (she's pretty competitive), but the options looked very good. We also had some non alcoholic drinks which were pretty tasty. The service was great. If I lived here, I would definitely return.

    I wasn't expecting such a good place in the tourist trap section of Fisherman's Wharf -but we were pleasantly surprised that For Harbor was very good. The staff is professional and knowledgeable. The drink selection and food was very good - sticking to local options - we weren't disappointed and if you are lucky enough to get a table near the window (we were) you will have a nice view to enjoy your meal.

    The view at Fog Harbor is nice - but the food was nothing special. We felt rushed - but at the same time neglected by the staff. It took three tries for me to get a glass of water. When I asked our main waiter for it - he said he was going on break and someone else would need to get it because it wasn't his job. I had a $38 entree - lobster and crab special - which was rich - but small in portion size and not that impressive. While Fishermen's Wharf is fun to walk around and explore - head into the quaint nearby neighborhoods for your dining experience.

    While visiting San Francisco my daughter and I decided we would have one night for a nice dinner. Booked on line and the only reservation available was 930 p.m. We accepted that time knowing I would be limited to what I could eat. We arrived and the place was almost empty. Made me realize that a earlier reservation should have been possible. I order salad with crab and my daughter order garlic crab dinner. Great presentation for dessert menu. Service was good, food was good, bill was hefty for what we got. Did not exceed our expectations.

The hot sourdough, excellent clam chowder, fresh salads and seafood and wonderful service keep us coming back. Best of all, every window looks out at Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge! For birthdays, they serve a complimentary dessert to the guest of honor with their name written in chocolate on the plate. Very nice!

    We took our 92 year old mother for lunch on a beautiful day in San Francisco. Too bad the food had no flavor. A pile of shredded lettuce with tasteless shrimp. Two of us had the shrimp louie salad, and it was one of the worst shrimp Louie's I have ever had. Thinking we would all have some type of fish (since we were in the city) we quickly discovered that it wasn't the item to order on their menu at all. Even the thousand island dressing was off. It was orange in color and too sweet. I had to ask for lemon twice. We did have a window seat which was nice. We would choose another restaurant in the area over Fog Harbor Fish House with our next visit to San Francisco.

    We stopped for lunch at Fog Harbor on our way from the airport to Sonoma. It was a perfect spot to get lunch. We had a beautiful view of the bay and alcatraz. The service was fabulous. They made a fuss of our birthdays, which was fun and special. The food was fabulous. Great clam chowder and the California crab and avocado salad was super fresh and delicious. The birthday desserts were delicious, too. We'd definitely go back. Thanks, Oscar!
