    Had a great time celebrating my wife's birthday. Requested a table with a spectacular view of the bay. I ordered the fried seafood mix and the wife ordered the cioppino. Both were fantastic. I have to say the service was so-so. Maybe because we didn't order alcohol. We had to continue to ask for our water glasses to be filled. Also, the server never brought us over a bread basket. He seemed to be friendlier to the couple at the next table because they ordered a bottle of wine. Another thing, they charge $2.00 for opening the clams in my wife's meal. Lastly on the check, besides CA sales tax, there is a 4% surcharge for SF Employer Health Care. Not all SF restaurants do. Overall, the meal outweigh the annoying charges and the service.

    Good food and fish menu. It's a large place, first one at Pier 39, plenty of walk ins, but surprisingly of decent quality of food. Service is timely, organized, but quick, almost rushed. Forget asking server a question due to high nose level. This would not be a good place for special occasion unless they have a separate sitting area.

    As a frequent diner at Fog Harbor Fish House I can state that the food is always very good regardless of what one offers, the service is usually very good and the view is outstanding. Once again we ordered many appetizers, soups, salads, and entrees and my party of nine thoroughly enjoyed each serving. The lobster mac & cheese appetizer/entree is outstanding. Attempt to make a reservation, but be advised that Fog Harbor Fish House does not book reservations for its busiest times of the day and relies on walk-in business. This is however, one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco.

    The food was great, we had crab/risotto for appetizer, fried combo (fish/calamari/shrimp), and crab roll. All the seafood are fresh and delicious! They also provide you a warm sourdough bread that is so amazing...seated by the window overlooking the boat cruise on the bay...it's nice for people watching :) Our waiter is very professional and friendly.

    Had a wonderful lunch here last weekend with my husband, baby and cousins visiting here from Malta on their honeymoon. The clam chowder was excellent as well as the service. I love that the restaurant offers many gluten free options since my cousin is allergic and the waiter was very knowledgeable about what items were safe for her as well as offering substitutions. They had the crab ceviche and halibut and loved it. We had the clam chowder and we split the grilled seafood plate but added two lobster tails and it was delicious. I'm glad we made a reservation in advance because their was a lot of people waiting when we left.

    The service was terrific for such a busy and crowded restaurant. Our waiter was very efficient and took really good care of us. The Lobster Roll was out of the world - I was stuffed but was not about to leave a single speck of it. Fresh lobster on warm buttery sourdough bread - need I say more. My husband could not stop talking about how wonderful his Chili Lime Shrimp Salad was. Also, could not missed their claim as best clam chowder so I ordered a cup and I must say the creamy wonderful soup was the best I have had.

    From the gorgeous ocean view to the delicious food and excellent service, our dinner at Fog Harbor was perfect in every way. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about the entire menu, and gave helpful suggestions. Warm sourdough bread is served at the beginning of the meal. We shared the Beet and Blue Cheese salad, which was a yummy combination of greens, walnuts, and blue cheese dressing served atop red and yellow beet slices. For our main courses, we had a halibut special served over a quinoa mixture and the wild salmon on the regular menu, which our server told us was caught locally and no more than 10 hours old. Everything was perfectly prepared and beautifully served. Timing and pace of meal was relaxed. We would definitely return.

    We went to Fog Harbor for lunch on our second day in SF. It was our first time at Fisherman's Wharf, so I requested a table with a view. They did not disappoint - our table was next to the floor-to-ceiling window with a view of the water and the pier, complete with sea lions, and Alcatraz and Angel Island in the background. The seafood was delicious. My husband had the crab cocktail - a heaping mound of fresh Dungeness crab, and the crab and avocado salad. Very fresh and tasty. I had the ahi tuna poke - lovely presentation and very nice flavours, with lots of fresh Cali avocado, followed by the baked oysters - perfectly cooked, with ample yummy Parmesan and sauce, without being too rich. Would go back - would love to try the supper menu!

    Make a reservation if you want to be at a table next to windows. The lobster tail was excellent as were the raw oysters. Definitely a place to go in San Francisco right on Pier 39. Go early and see the sea lions and the boats and shops then enjoy an excellent dinner. A relaxed atmosphere and great food.

    Lunch at Fog Harbor Fish House was outstanding, as the food was delicious, the service was very good, and the views of Alcatraz, San Francisco Bay, and Fisherman's Wharf were incredible. My family particularly enjoyed the lobster and macaroni casserole, although the salads, crab cakes, clam chowder, mixed seafood grill, and chicken pasta were also excellent. Fog Harbor Fish House was crowded and noisy, as this is clearly a popular restaurant. Reservations are definitely suggested, although it appears that the restaurant does not accept reservations during a large block of time shortly after noontime. We will definitely return to Fog Harbor again!

    We had a party of (8) and decided to have an early dinner. We were seating at an excellent table with a bay window view of the harbor. After being seated, there was a short delay in being waited on. Although we did not complain, the server and manager more than made up for this short delay. The service and food was excellent. All (8) of us were severed at the same time as well. We really had a great dinner at the Fog Habor fish House and can't wait to go back when in San Francisco. Highly recommend for large party, small party, or family. The Pier 39 is also a great place to sight see and shop before or after dinner.

    We were provided with excellent service on our visit. The food was fine - not as amazing and fresh tasting as one would think for the City by the Bay. We live in Dallas and regularly eat seafood that tastes more fresh than what we had on our visit. That being said, I would still tell friends to go here because the place has such a special feel and beautiful view. Our waiter had been working there for 29 years and it showed - he was a master waiter! Our fish and chips was tough and flavorless; clam chowder was great as was the sourdough bread; the whole crab was fine; the cioppino was good; fried scallop appetizer was very good; all of us loved the creme brulee. Overall - not bad food with great service.

    My Wife and I flew down to hook up with my cousins from Walnut Creek and my Wifes Brother and his Family who are From Brandford Harbor, Conn.I'm from a fishing town- Astoria, Oregon- also known as little San Francisco. We were all raised on Fishing Boats and Seafood. We're all also sorry to say we had to go to San Francisco and Fog Harbor Fish House for probably the best Seafood we'd ever had- seriously- The Salmon was perfect, the Oysters yummy, the Fish and Chips-ya baby. The only complaint, we were in the back dining room and it gets a little warm. The cost for 9 people was considerable but divided by 9 it was quite reasonable overall. We recommended it, especially the Clam Chowder- to everyone we talked to at our Hotel.

    We were so excited to eat here on the first day of our trip. I booked the table with a note that my sister has a food allergy. When we were seated, she informed the waitress she had a soy allergy and asked for the sauce of our appetizer to be on the side since it contained the allergen. When it came out, it was not on the side, so we sent it back. Our waitress went on break, so a new waitress brought it back, put it on our table and very insistently told us it was fine. After a debate, she reluctantly took it back. Then another staff member brought it back again and had the same debate with us. At that point, my sister was humiliated and started to tear up. Whether a necessity or a request, it should have just been put on the side.

    My wife and I celebrated a wedding anniversary here. I noted that event when I made the reservation. Got special attention. But best was the salmon and ahi tuna we ordered. Both meals were outstanding. Highly recommend this restaurant. We were a bit skeptical about Fisferman's Wharf and Pier 39 because of the touristy nature, but Fog Harbor was a terrific experience. Recommend making reservations since on a Wednesday night the place was very busy.

    Had the signature shellfish platter and also tried the halibut and grilled shrimp that others ordered. The seafood was all high quality and prepared as well as any place I've been to on either coast. Service was great with the right balance of attentiveness without being overbearing. Great sourdough bread too. Best balance of high quality and reasonable prices we experienced all week.

    Fog Harbor Fish House was an excellent choice for my 55th Birthday. The portions were generous and tasty. I had the crab louis salad and couldn't finish because there so much crab on the salad. The crab was perfect. I highly recommend it, especially, if like us, we were doing other activities at Pier 39.

    It's been an amazing experience to dine here. We've had a really long flight from the other side of the earth and had this amazing dinner at this place. Our fatigue disappeared as soon as we got here. However, I have to say that the service level didn't really match the place and the price we paid. They should spend a little more of their spirit on the quality of that.
