Sinbad's Pier II Restaurant
Great dinner for Mother's DayWent here with my family to Celebrate Mother's day on 7pm this past Saturday night. This is the best spot in SF to see the Bay Bridge and the new lights. The host sat the 6 of us right by the window and we got to see the best views of the Bay. They could update some of the things inside, but it adds to the charm that is Sinbad's. Our waitress was outstanding, even going as far to let us know that there is a huge party about to order, allowing us a good heads up that we should order in order to not be bothered by any wait. And even after we ordered, our food came out very quickly. Their seafood is extremely fresh and delicious. I recommend the bouillabaise. This restaurant is great for events and I am very happy with my choice.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner at Sinbad'sOur family had dinner at Sinbad's last Saturday night. The waiter and Maitre D were very friendly and provided great service. The food was great! The view of the Bay Bridge lights was excellent....but if you want to see them, planning on being there...or staying until 8:00 - 8:30 pm.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMService was excellent andService was excellent and the food was quite good. Enjoyed the view.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMYou'll Be Grateful You Dined Here!Overall we had a very pleasant experience. Yes, the decor is dated and yet, that is to be expected in a historical place like this. Our server was very attentive, even though he was rushed at times as this place can get busy even on a Thursday evening when we went. He was zany, amusing and kept making us laugh. I believe this is likely the best view you can get of the new light show on the Bay Bridge of any restaurants in S.F. because it's on the water and up close and personal with the bridge. I highly recommend this place.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceGood food, very nice view of bay bridge, great ambiance, good service4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went there for cocktailsWe went there for cocktails and see the light sculpture in the baybridge. But found out that the lights won't start until around 8-8:30 pm when it gets dark, so we decided to stay and had dinner. Well, we made the right decision, it was so worth it. We liked all what we ordered- fried calamari, seafood pasta and blackened snapper. The bill all came up to about $66.50 excluding tax and tip. Not bad for a dinner with a view.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe LED light of the baybridgeThe LED light of the baybridge was splendid, one of a kind scene. The view from our table was just gorgeous and I was glad I decided to bring my guests here. I am proud that SF has this attraction in the evening. Food was excellent , bit pricey though.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDespite the long wait, I'mDespite the long wait, I'm giving this restaurant a 5-star because of the following:
1. It had the best view of the lighted bridge;
2. Food was fresh and tasty; and
3. Valet parking was cheap.
Can't wait to bring my next out of town visitors to this restaurant. We just have to go there late in the evening (and preferably on a weekday), so hopefully the wait would not be that long.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there for Easter brunch.We were there for Easter brunch. The food and service were great, but there were very few people there. We understand that it is very busy and noisy in the evening, so go for lunch.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI really don't know why peopleI really don't know why people are complaining about this place. I agree that the place needs a remodel, but the food was delicious, cooked to perfection. Service was great and staf were all friendly. I was not treated any different for having a groupon. I am originally from San Francisco and it's nice to come down and have a nice meal at a discounted rate since this place is more for tourist.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food On The BayThis was an awesome treat for my first night in SF. Awesome view of the bay, great food, and amazing service. I will definitely go back!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI recommend this place forI recommend this place for dinner, especially if you have guests who want to see the baybidge with the lights. We were impressed. Just in front of our table was the lighted bridge of different patterns. I also recommend their grilled snapper. Prices were not cheap but reasonable.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMDespite some bad reviews aboutDespite some bad reviews about this restaurant at Yelp, we still decided to try it out. We're glad we did it, we were happy and satisfied:
1. The Bay LED LIGHTS are AMAZING from where we were seated;
2. FOOD was REAL TASTY and PORTIONS were BIG ENOUGH; and
3. VALET PARKING was NOT A PROBLEM and it was CHEAP @ $5.00!

Perfect evening!3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI think Sinbad's has the bestI think Sinbad's has the best view of the bay bridge light sculpture. The whole span of the bridge can be seen from our table; it was beautiful. Food was very good, bit pricey, but it was worth it. Now I know where to bring my guests for dinner with a special attraction.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had grilled snapper andWe had grilled snapper and halibut champignon- both were delicious and you can tell the fish was really fresh. Dessert was good with freshly brewed coffee. But the real winner was the gorgeous lights in the bay bridge, so fun to watch how the patterns change every now and then. Our overall dining experience was superb.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe lights in the bay bridgeThe lights in the bay bridge made this dinner my most memorable one. The view was amazing!! The lights came in different patterns, really one of a kind bridge. The food was good, too, but it was the view that captivated me and my date that night.3/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
