  • "Problem-the Waterfront didn't have our reservation- even with the confirmation number"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "I'm a local girl but I love to play tourist now and then. Whenever I go to Pier 39 Neptune's is where I like to have lunch. I've been going for years and it remains consistent. The views are spectacular, the service is wonderful, and the food is even better. I like that they treat you like a neighborhood restaurant, rather than a tourist spot, even though most people are tourists. I always get the seafood tower - shrimp, avocado, tomato, salad and it's beautiful and so tasty. My husband always gets the lobster chowder and another dish - this time the fish and chips. He said it was about the best fish and chips he's ever had. I hope Neptune's never closes!"

  • "We only had sandwiches; my husband a burger and me a loaded grilled chicken sandwich. Both were very tasty. Instead of fries, our waitress gladly replaced with sautéed, wonderful asparagus. She was very attentive and helpful. Our iced tea was refilled often. The only negative thing would be where the hostess sat us, in the 'garden room' that had lots of glass on the ceiling that caused our table area to get hotter and hotter as the sun moved. Our view was good but partially blocked. I mentioned this to the hostess afterward and she said she would have moved us. She did also offer some other good information about San Francisco which we appreciated."

  • "I had dinner here on March 15th for my boyfriend's birthday. We originally had a reservation time for 5:00 pm, but since that conflicted with other plans we asked if it would be possible to seat us half an hour earlier. The staff was very accommodating and sat us quickly. The service was good, everyone was friendly, and the views were beautiful. The waitress was very attentive but not overbearing. Overall we had a wonderful dinner. I recommend trying the baked oysters we tried the BBQ, and the cheese ones and they were AMAZING!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Considering we live in SF, we don't frequent the heavy tourist areas much, even though there are some amazing places to visit. Every once in a while we try something new and this was on the list. It actually exceeded my expectation. The restaurant itself is very lovely with wonderful ambiance. The food selection was great and I had a tough time deciding. The oysters were delicious and my seafood was fresh and tasty. I would definitely take friends there if we were in the neighborhood."

  • "Service was good and accommodating towards our request for a window seat. Food and drinks were okay, not great. Beautiful scenic view. I would come back bc of the service and view."

  • "Did not have any of the food that was on the open table menu. Food was just ok for a big price."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "If you're in the mood for a tourism program, Neptune is the perfect location, points above the average ranking of the restaurants at Pier 39. Grilled fish, such as salmon and swordfish, will prove to have reasonable taste...as well as a reasonable price. But do not expect a fascinating presentation... Neither linen nor china: none of a five star service - remember, you are in a very regular tourist mode. But it's okay... If you get a table in the corner, through one window you will see Alcatraz; through the other, the lazy sea lions resting after some fishing lunch...Any resemblance, just coincidence ;-)"
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "We had 1 chicken Caesar salad, one shrimp Caesar salad and two iced teas---$44.00 The presentation was mediocre, the taste was unremarkable, the chicken was not tasty and rather chewy. The shrimp looked unappetizing. The bread was served midway into the meal. This was not a complicated meal. I felt embarrassed having brought an out of town guest for a business lunch."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "Took my wife to Neptunes for Valentine's Day and we absolutely enjoyed our night together. Great food, good service and if you're lucky to get a table at the window, a great view."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Very disappointed, my girlfriend and I had seafood, she had fish and I had pasta with fish, scallope and shrimp. Fish was very dry, and my pasta did not taste good, looked and tasted like pre-made. The clam chowder, too creamy and there are tiny speck of clam. Food are not worth the price I paid. My girlfriend also found, that there's a piece of wine label in her glass, we complained and gave us anoher glass of wine, and the waiter proudly told us that "it was just the wine label". Not worth the price I paid also. For the view, we will just go on the pier and enjoy the same view. There's no way we're going back here."

  • "Was out of different food menu items and wines. I thought this would be a more upscale restaurant . Very expensive."

  • "Excellent food and our server was wonderful! We will be back again soon."

  • "The food was just ok. The view was spectacular though."

  • "We went in for a light lunch. The soups were excellent, but it was the view of Alcatraz that we enjoyed the most."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "The view is second to none. Having great service and very good food made it enjoyable experience on a wet, foggy day. We enjoy it every time we go to San Francisco."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "For a place located right on Pier 39, I expected more. The server ran my card twice. Came back to tell me that, and said they would refund the 1st charge, but they never did! Their menu was more what I would see at a put than a nice scenic restaurant. If you are looking for good food, please go somewhere else. We ordered the fish fry and it was super greasy, the fries were not crispy at all. I think most people go there for the view."

  • "Everything was exceptional, would've enjoyed a bigger variety on the menu and live entertainment would've topped it off!!"
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "Food was good, scenic view was fantastic! Disappointed they did not offer specials and more variety such as surf and turf. OK for general dinner exeprience, not so much for a special occasion or high profile business dinner. Service was good but nothing spectacular."
    Dined on 1/21/2014
  • "We went for dinner during the holidays and had a great time. The view is great, with the San Francisco Bay in full view, Alcatraz and the Golden Gate bridge in the nearby. The food is good, but not great. The clam chowder, was creamy and full of clams. The lobsters my wife and I had were good but nothing to remarkable"
    Dined on 12/22/2013
  • "To be honest, I wasn't blown away by this place, but it wasn't horrible either. The service we had was more on the neglectful side the night we went. I would go again, but I wouldn't be the first place on my list to hit up."
    Dined on 12/18/2013
  • "I picked this restaurant for a work celebration. We were one of the only tables in the place which suited us just fine. We all ordered seafood and some of it was good, but none of it was great. If you are interested in a great location with an amazing view, this is the place for you. If you are looking for amazing food, try Butterfly."

  • "Party enjoyed the food and location very much - fireworks apparently now are from Bay Bridge not Golden Gate Bridge so location in restaurant for this is important. Must book as busy"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Had only a fixed menu for New Year's Eve. Did not know this while making reservations . No mention on their website. Felt it was a little pricy for the meal we had, but it was SF and new years eve too. Service was excellent, food pretty good. Felt the bisque and chowder were too salty. My veggies were a little too al dente. The steak I had was excellent though."

  • "Good food, great service, nice very good view. A bit pricey but worth it."

  • "The grill was really warm, festive, and yet elegant. Service was excellent and attentive. The food was really good, but the best part was the view of the water and of the sea lions below us!"

  • "I enjoyed the service and food very much and my most favorite was the Baked Garlic Parmesan Oysters... OMG SOOOOO GOOODDD. If you haven't tried it yet you better!!!! :D"

    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "Neptunes was WONDERFUL! The window view of golden gate at night was wonderful and the staff remembered my dad and son's birthday celebrations just from our open table "comments". Didn't mention it upon arrival! They even remembered my son was turning 9! The food was also incredible. Definitely will be back to Neptunes."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "Food was good, but servings were quite small for the price. Service was excellent, wine was good, and ambience was excellent as we were able to get a table overlooking the bay. Claims 95% sustainable seafood."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "As a local who avoids Pier 39 like the plague, I was attracted to Neptune's for its fresh crab and late lunch hours. We were there at 2:30 with very few other people. The waitress was very helpful and friendly. It was a great time to be there! and the view of the bay, diving seals, container ships coming under the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz... it was perfect. My husband really enjoyed the fish stew (cioppino), complete with paper bib just like it's supposed to be offered. Of course the fresh crab was terrific!"
    Dined on 12/5/2013
  • "Neptune's is very expensive for the quality of the food. The clam chowder and steamed clams were tasty. My mom like the grilled halibut, but I found it mediocre. The ceasar salad and calamari were also so-so. My brother ordered the kobe beef burger and it was overcooked. He sent it back and then was told it would always come out like that because of the "marinade". Not sure how that affects the inside of the burger, but the server returned the burger without having the kitchen recook it. That was disappointing, as the service was otherwise good. Overall diners are paying for the fabulous view and not the food, that's why I'm giving the restaruant a 3 and not a 2."

  • "I took my family from out of town here on Thanksgiving Day. We weren't looking for traditional turkey dinner but they offered it. Instead though, we ordered cioppino (fish stew) and it was out of this World! Pier 39 is always a stop for out of town visitors - great to have a great place to eat dinner now too."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "We asked for a table w/view of the bay, and view was great (Alcatraz Island and the bay) we had salmon & Dungeness crab, both very good, waiter was professional and suggest a good local wine to go w/the meal, dessert was good as well, coffee was so so. would recommend if you are in the neighborhood."
    Dined on 10/20/2013
  • "Excellent food, service, ambiance and you can't beat the view. We are looking forward to a return visit."
