This is our place to go when in SF and the Wharf. While it's been around for decades - it never disappoints. The food is great and so is the service. We were well taken care of and will go back if we are back in the area again.

I have been dining at Alioto's for many years when in San Francisco, starting with my honeymoon in 1987 and most recently earlier this week. The experience has always been consistently excellent over the past 30 years. I usually try to get there before sundown as there isn't a better view of the Golden Gate Bridge as the sun sets anywhere else on Fisherman's Wharf. The service, the fresh seafood impeccably prepared, the well-curated wine list and the ambience; all are superb every time. Congratulations, Alioto Family!

We visited this place a few time. It is not cheap, but the food (fish) and service is great. View of the Golden Gate is also attractive.

Maybe it’s a cliched tourist place to eat. Maybe it’s THE cliched tourist place to eat. Whatever. The food is solid. Tasty bread service—so you don’t have to make a trip to Boudin. Great views even if you’re not right up at the window (think theater rise seating) Sure, it costs more than it should, but you’re not getting bad food.

The risotto Alioto is the best I’ve ever had. Crab cocktail was wonderful. Our waiter, Olivier, was absolutely outstanding and made the entire experience noteworthy and memorable.

Our 2nd time eating here and was just as great as the first time. The staff are very professional and friendly. Great customer service to attention and detail and accommodating. Very delicious selections to choose from. Somewhat on the high side of costs but you get what you pay for....really, really good food, atmosphere and service. We will definitely return.
