Excellent food, service and views
I have eaten here many times. The chef is very creative and the food is always very fresh and tasty. There's something for every taste. Service is always very professional and friendly. The Blood Orange drink is especially fantastic. Both thumbs up!

The food is incredible. Pita bread with spreads a lovely start. Flatbread was wonderful. My entree and everyone else's at my table enjoyed everything very much. An absolute delight.

Beautiful food, beautiful
Beautiful food, beautiful ambiance.
I had the porkbelly on wilted kale and frisee with a 30-something degree egg. Yummy.
It was a working lunch, so we didn't indulge in cocktails or wine. Our server was gracious and attentive--her pride of place was evident, yet subtle.
Overall, a lovely experience and I would definitely want to go back. Thank you!

We always come back....
Hubby and I were married in this restaurant 4 years ago and we love to come here to celebrate our anniversary. The food, service and ambiance always measure up.

I had a great birthday lunch
I had a great birthday lunch here at Sens and would highly recommend for smaller groups of 5 or so. We were treated very well, and the view of the Bay Bridge was lovely. Nice location.

Good for business lunch in the financial district. Food is good, but somewhat overpriced.

The food and the view are
The food and the view are amaxing. This place is also really good for happy hour from 3 to 7pm although we came for lunch. I had the gnocci which was really good.
Our waiter was nice, but when we requested to get an umbrella shade, the staff made a face and were not that friendly, although in the end they did get it for us since it was very bright and sunny
5/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Outstanding meal and service!
The oxtail manti was amazing! We started with the Turkish fig and phyllo wrapped goat cheese as appetizers, and they were perfect. The savory figs literally melted in our mouths with flavour. Our server was so knowledgeable, passionate and engaged. It was a perfect evening!

Love this place
Great food, gorgeous scenery. Lamb meatballs are the best.
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a Bay Area gem just 5-minutes walk from the BART Embarcadero Station! The ambiance was perfect for a lunchtime meeting or a romantic 13-year anniversary lunch with your hubs (love you babe!)! Probably not very kid-friendly unless your kid-o has a refined palate. The lamb burger was THE BEST burger I have EVER had! It was juicy, tender and cooked perfectly! The Brentwood corn soup is to die for and very seasonal so go NOW!! The view of Pier 1 was beautiful, and at night the light show on the Bay Bridge would be amazing!! Our server, Sarah, was awesome! Our glass of Hanks Root Beer was never empty and she was attentive our whole meal. Two thumbs up easily! Buon appetito!

Really like hte dailey Business Luncheo special. Twenty buck and you get soup, entree, and dessert.

Surprised the locals!
I brought two long time Sf residents here for lunch, neither knew it existed, and they were "wowed".
7/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
slow service, but good otherwise
The restaurant has nice views on outdoor patio dining and great ambiance. Food was well above average and I liked the menu options. Went for late lunch in the early afternoon on a weekday and it was not crowded. They were out of Paella and the overall food service was slow. Water wasn't given with ice, nor was it cold. Bread, which was only brought upon request, took a while to make it to the table, as did the main course.

Fantastic food and ambiance
Went with a group of 4 for lunch. Food was outstanding -- everything we ate was delicious. Especially liked the pita bread with dipping sauces appetizer. All the appetizers were great and creative. Main dishes were phenomenal. Steak was perfect, seafood jambalaya was good. The desserts were good as well -- I've eaten at Sens before and the desserts were previously not as good as the rest of the meal, but they've made some changes and are much better now. Definitely a great place with a fun ambiance. I will keep coming back. One in our party hadn't been to Sens before and has already made reservations to go back next week with some other friends.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We chose Sens because my nephew works there. Two of our party had already been on a previous occasion. They highly recommended Sens. I totally agree. Had a great lunch.

Good food in a noisy atmosphere
I met a friend for lunch here. It's a great location in 4 Embarcadero (They validate parking.) Our waiter was friendly, funny, and attentive, didn't rush us, even though it was a busy lunch period. The food was delicious including dessert. Our only complaint was the noise level. We asked to be moved from the original table into the bar area since we couldn't hear anything the other was saying. Other than the noise, a great lunch spot!
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, great wine list
Only downside its that it is too noisy if you've reached that point in life when you don't want to have to shout to be heard across a table.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great location in the Embarcadero
Great location in the Embarcadero Center opposite the SF Ferry Building. Homey, comfortable atmosphere indoors and out, and the Mediterranean-inspired food matches the ambience. Great for a group lunch or even a date night dinner.

It is not your typical mall
It is not your typical mall restaurant. Well done design and lighting, service to impress without up-sells, and the food made me want to complete every morsel.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The inside is very cozy, and patio dining is avaiable also. We had outstanding service--the waiter always arrived at just the right time and was able to make good suggestions. The food was perfectly prepared and presented, but was not pretentious. It's located right at The Embarcadero in San Francisco. which allows the diners to great themselves to the beautiful view of The Ferry Building and the bay.

Great business dinner
Made an Open Table reservation on short notice following a meeting. We were shown to a nice table by the window. The service was very attentive. The menu had a nice selection of Mediterranean appetizers and entrees, but choices were not overwhelming. The wine list, while not expansive, covered all parts of the world and prices were generally double-retail at all price points. I had no problem finding a very nice Tomassi Valpolicella for $51. The restaurant is tastefully decorated with a nice after-work crowd and vibe. The noise level still allowed for conversation. Overall, a very nice dining experience.

Better than ever
I've often chosen Sens for convenience and value. This time the food really soared-- three terrific dishes for $20 on the business lunch deal (silken corn soup, earthy beef cheeks and mushrooms over crispy polenta, a lovely take on strawberry shortcake). Exceeded expectations: I'll be back soon!

This restaurant used to be
This restaurant used to be Spendido which was my favortie restaurant. I had never been back since it closed, but I will definitely go back again. Different type food, but everything I ordered was delicious. The bartender was very helpful and friendly and went out of her way to recommend things on the menu she thought were tasty - and they all were. Great atmosphere and truly and enjoyable fun place to dine.

See the Bay
Great location for it's food and scenic view on a somewhat clear evening in the city, good to show off to guest coming into city for the first time or seeing a view they have not seen before with good food and drink.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall really nice experience
Overall, the service was great! I appreciated that the manager was flexible with my changing party number (was a 50th surprise party and some dropped and some added at the end), and allowing drop off flowers and a cake ahead. Food ordering however, was a bit inflexible. Given that we were a party of 12 ordering dinner, I feel they could have allowed us to order from the happy hour menu for apps - there were things on that menu that weren't offered on the regular one. And apps on regular menu were too small for a party of our size - hummus was a tablespoon so even if I ordered 2, it would not feed our group. Also, food came out pretty slow. Everyone had a really nice time though, the staff were friendly and helpful and the view is great!

Great place. Good view of the plaza. Very enjoyable.

Great food and attention to detail! highly underappreciated and relatively unknown gem in embarcadero towers overlooking the bay and ferry building. Great ambiance on a sunny day or evenings.

Great View Of The Bay Bridge Lights
The plan was to pick my wife up at SFO then head into the city for dinner with a view of the Bay Bridge Lights. Her flight kept getting delayed so I had to adjust the reservation several times. When we finally arrived, the hostess was very understanding and had kept a table with an amazing view open for us. From there it just got better. The Poached Turkish Apricots, the Fattoush Salad, the Pan Seared Dayboat Scallops, all amazing. Our waitress was friendly and attentive, and even stepped outside with us to help us take some pictures with the bridge in the background. Noise level in our section was low with cool ambient music in the background. I would absolutely dine there again and have already recommended them to friends.

Fun Atmosphere and Excellent Food!
Invited a friend for a birthday celebration. The food was fabulous, interesting and innovative, and we received service excellent service. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant. The bar looked pretty fun too.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Superb Cuisine, Service, Atmosphere
We orderd and shared an array of starters and entrees. Everyting was delicius, especially the Scallops with Corn Succotash (cooked perfectly!) and the Chicken Mearballs. Our server was attentive, friendly and delivered refined yet approachable service. The view is the cherry on top of an already exquisite experience.

Excellent food! Insane corkage fee!
The food was excellent! Everything we ate was fantastic and we don't say that about many restaurants. The only downside was the corking fee, which was ridiculous!! Being from out of state, we have never encountered such an outrageous fee for corkage. We had just come from Napa/Sonoma where they didn't charge a corking fee for local wines, it seems insane to not support a major industry for your state. If you want to charge extra for non-local wines, I say "more power to you", but for local wines, how sad!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to meet up for dinner!
They make you feel comfortable! The staff are attentive, but not imposing or demanding which helps support the relaxed environment. Great views and a and a very comfortable venue. I've been here many times over the past couple of years, and will continue to go back!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Although there is nothing to complain about on the menu, the service was amazing! My guest had something on his mind that he was craving and brought it to the server's attention. The server was creative and took pieces of different dishes and made something amazing! Now that is true talent. Kudos to the server and to the chef for not being offended and creating a delicious dish!

Limited menu, but good
Not the most extensive menu, a lot of it is small appetizer plates. A bit overpriced, but the location is nice. Very loud.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I met at lunch at Sens five years ago. We got back frequently but always on the date that we first met. The staff is wonderful, the food is always good and we intend to keep coming back. A very special place.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Bay Bridge View
We went to Sens primarily for the view and were not disappointed. We were seated right by one of the big windows with view on the bridge and ferry building. On a Saturday night, it wasn't crowded or too noisy. Four of us shared several appetizer plates, all good and a couple of them were outstanding. I recommend the grilled octopus.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have always enjoyed eating here with my colleagues. It's a beautiful setting and the food is delicious. Service is always
