Nice view of harbor and Golden Gate bridge at sunset.
Food was excellent but interior is tired and needs to be cleaned and updated esp the restrooms . I love the place but it needs a fresh face and clean up
Excellent service, food, and location. This is a perfect choice for locals and visitors alike.
Service was good. Ravioli was nice. Bread was stall and tough, lobster for $58 was tiny and dried out. Such a disappointment
Great location so I guess they don’t feel like they need to be making dining experience... the food was a la 1963 (= poor by current standards)
Excellent time and great food as well as service. Server was professional and friendly. Old school charm worth the visit.
I love the roasted cracked crab wharf style but I wish to pounds came out to be a larger portion
Highly recommend this fantastic restaurant for those visiting San Francisco. Wonderful seafood. We eat here every time we come to the Bay Area.
We wanted to have a genuine "San Francisco" experience! We did! Service was awesome, and so was the food. Thank you!
Great service! The shrimp Louie and crab bisque soup was amazing!
Alioto’s was perfect for my anniversary dinner. On the water with great views. The food matched the location and service was impeccable.
It's SF in the most touristy part of town. The food was passable but you get an amazing view of the bridge. Not a great value, but hey... You're on vacation
We enjoyed our dinner at Alioto’s. Our guest, a wine connoisseur, only found one listing for a white that pleased her, but it was excellent. (Romburgh Chardonnay) Our meals were tasty and filling. Server was a bit odd, but we got everything we had ordered, eventually. View from our table was excellent!
We had a great table by the window but unfortunately had an inattentive waiter who did not get our order right, among other things, and did not apologize for bringing us the wrong dish, and then later charged us on our bill for the greater price of the incorrect item. He was also slow and seemed to disappear when it came time to bring us the bill or to return our credit card. But we did not let that spoil our enjoyment of eating at Alioto's
Enjoyed the view. Had reservations so wait was minimal. Was a little disappointed in the service. It was a Saturday night so I understand that they were busy but felt very rushed to vacate the table. The meal was brought out just barely after the appetizer. No offer from the waiter for fresh ground pepper, nor did he ask if we wanted another drink. The food was good but didn’t enjoy the feeling of being rushed. I will only return if I am in a hurry myself.
Nice selections on the wine list, excellent calamari, risotto, scallops and creme brulee for dessert! Great view of the harbor and Golden Gate Bridge from panoramic windows...best if you have a table by the window but you can see the view from most tables in the restaurant. Look up local sunset time and make your reservation for about a half-hour before
What a shocker this one was. Appalling service. Asked me how my appetiser had been when I hadn’t had it - they forgot to bring it out. Then, when they rectified this, I took my first mouthful and a different server arrived with my main saying “I’m sorry to rush you but your entree is ready” - I sent it back to keep warm but then it was delivered back to me nearly cold 10 mins later.
No apology, no acknowledgement.
Do not go here
Great food, crab was just awesome. Excellent service and they were kind enough to accommodate with a window table because it was a very special occasion for us.
Too much garlic. Bill was high considering wife only had a pasta dish. Coffee after the main course was excellent!
Great view of Golden gate bridge and the boats. Food was very fresh. Overall incredible experience!
Food was amazing and not to mention the stunning view of the bay!
Nice dining room upstairs! Great views too!
My parents took me to Alioto's when I was 11, and I had sole en papillote -- the most elegant dish I had ever seen. Alioto's remains my favorite restaurant in America. So coming back for dinner not only brings back wonderful memories, but the menu (Alioto's private label wine), Petrale Sole, and the best bay shrimp cocktail I will ever eat were the highest standards. And as just ordinary diners, we were treated royally like old friends and valued customers.
The seafood ravioli was delicious, service was attentive but not overbearing and the waterfront views are beautiful!
We come here EVERY time we are in San Fran... EVERY time. We’ve eaten at all the local establishments and thus us by far the best!
It was great!!
Perfect evening ! Beautiful view, great staff. Thank you
Reservations are essential on weekend and Friday night. Well worth the effort. Food was exceptional.
Food excellent! Service spot on and consistent! Drinks great also. Highly recommend. A little expensive for the tightish squeeze of tables, but great for an occasion get together. We had a fabulous time!
Great as usual. Always a wonderful view of the fishing fleet.
Great location on Bay. Very nice view of the water and San Francisco landmarks. Reservation was easy. Parking available across street. We were seated immediately and gotten cocktails promptly. The tortellini was enjoyed by three of our group. The chicken parm was delicious. The Risotto with mushroom, shrimp and scallops was fabulous. The people from out of the area were thoroughly impressed. Our server made the meal. He was extremely personable. A great sense of humor. Will certainly get his section when we return the next time.
Excellent meal and my wife enjoyed the "Happy Birthday" serenade! Except for moderate noise and an initial cup of coffee on the luke warm side, everything was outstanding. The fish was outstanding!!
This is one of the the best SF Fishermens' Wharf/North Beach restaurants. These guys have super class without being too stuffy. Their food is outstanding. This is high on the recommendation list of places to eat. They make the Supreme Alioto's Risotto. We traveled through the Amalfi Coast and did not eat a Risotto as delicious as the one made right here.
We were celebrating my sons birthday and we could have not asked for a better place to celebrate it. The food, the view, our private dinning area and great service! A fun evening was had by all.
We had a show to catch and the staff was very helpful in getting us our food in time so we were able to make it. Our server and the manager were both great.
The food was excellent- each and every dish. The calamari duo is a must try. We ordered the sole, salmon, filet mignon and the trio. All of them were superb - fresh, melting in our mouth with delicious flavors.
This is most definitely our favorite seafood restaurant in San Francisco!
Wonderful! Love this place.
Food was great!
Wonderful location, food and service
The place feels slightly dated and whilst I had the lobster and crab it wasn’t brilliant, shame I was expecting more
