Service was great! Foods are all sensational.
Very thoughtful service. Great birthday dinner! Bouillabaisse was amazing!
Food ok, but nothing special...
I thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Alioto's. Wonderful table by the water, wonderful unpretentious service. The oysters Rockefeller were terrific, as were drinks. My ravioli were bleh -- supposedly lobster and shrimp but thin and I couldn't tell you what was inside. My friend said the crab Louie had good crab but otherwise no real flavor/enhancement as a dish. Both would have been a better value if more reasonably priced. Overall, I do recommend Alioto's because it is so enjoyable a location and the staff is great. I would not go back for the food, though. There might be better choices there...
Great food. Server was friendly and professional. I’d go back.
Awesome service, food, and view!!!
We enjoyed the view, the service, and the food. Such a classic place to eat!
Every time I come in town Alioto’s is a must. Tonight I tried Risotto Alioto and it was phenomenal. Highly recommend the plate and the service is always excellent. Cheers!
Excellent food preparation, service and ambiance. But for the fact that the chef was unwilling to fully shell the 1/2 cracked dungennes crab that my 90 year old friend from HI had ordered (even with my offer to compensate for the extra work in the de-shelling) I would have given this restaurant visit 5 stars.
This was one of the best seafood restaurants we have ever been too.
They forgot ... no celebration! I waited
And waited but nothing.
When I left I asked why and they said they missed it
They offered very nicely to do something something right there and then but our party had already split up and went their own ways
I was sad!
My wife and I went 20 years ago and we returned in 2018 with family and friends. Nothing has changed. Great food, great service, great vibe and fab location. You need to book at busy times or expect a long wait.
Wonderful dining experience. Food was excellent and the recommendations from the wait staff was right on the money. It was nice to see the Manager (Owner?) come by every table to see how we were enjoying the meal.
The only downside is the horde of tourists blocking the entrance to Fisherman’s Wharf and to the restaurant itself. Not the nicest people you want to encounter before a nice dining experience. Suggest that you may plan your visit at a quieter time of the year.
It was very cold due to an airconditioning downdraft. When pointed out the waiter brought us napkins to drape over the shoulders of our children and the Mrs.
A second glass of wine that was ordered at the end of the appetizer was never received (although, just before the end of the entree I was asked “didn’t you order a second glass of wine?”
Finally, the waiter managed to ignore us for quite some time (he was helping the tables next to us continuously) and then he didn’t take the credit card. The whole process lasted around 20 minutes.
I wonder why then they are upset if you don’t give them the full gratuity?!
This is a very good seafood restaurant on the warf.
Alioto has the best view in the Wharf of the San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. The crab as is always fabulous!
Food over all so so
A wonderful dining experience - Beautiful views across the wharf piers in a historical setting. Lovely to see the family pictures donning the walls and appreciate the family ambiance. The food was fantastic quality - professional, friendly, cosy service with comfort seafood to match. Calamari was very tasty and cooked perfectly, as were our fish trio and salmon kalbi mains.
Excellent service and friendly wait staff I had the East meets West meal. Crab and lobster. My meal was delicious and filling. We also had the shrimp cocktail appetizer, tossed salad, and creme brulee for dessert. All delicious. The creme brulee was the best I've ever had and I order it everywhere we go that it's on the menu. The bay shrimp cocktail was baby shrimp which we weren't expecting. I would suggest the prawns instead. Still filling and good just not what I'm used to. I highly recommend you try it out. The view is amazing as well!
Historic spot that still has great food in a classic setting. Time travel in a good way. Enjoyed a great meal in a calm oasis above the bustling waterfront area. Does not have the tourist crush of Pier 39 -- go there first, and then escape here to relax and enjoy a classic fine dining experience.
Great food, ambiance and staff. Parking across the street is tricky, however. They validate for up to 3 hours on the weekend, but the lot is likely full.
Excellent service, funny waiter, beautiful view. Food was good, nothing outstanding, lots of butter on the food, but not worth the price. Felt a little rushed because the food came out very fast. in and out of there within 45-60 minutes
It was a first date. We were seated right away. Table at the window harbor view. Are waiter was attentive and friendly. The food was excellent I had the three fish combo my date had the stuffed prawns and just raved about them. It was a great first date. Would recommend and will return again.
We came for the chowder and it was outstanding. We also had the crab legs...also outstanding!
Aliotos never disappoints! Friendly waiters who are personal and kind and delicious fish with welcoming service and delightful wharf views that make you glad to be in San Francisco!
Nice spot for dinner. Nice selection of food. Attentive service.
Booked following Rick Stein on UK tv. Food was superb. Staff bent over backwards to facilitate gluten free. Wine wa excellent. We will be back next time we are in SF.
Every visit to this wonderful restaurant has been simply amazing!
Excellent food, beautiful views of the bay and friendly staff, what more to ask for...
Great food great service
Our family of 8 adults had been in wine country several days followed by a few days in SF. My previous experience at Alioto's was so good that I just had to share this treasure with them. Our reservation was in place a couple months prior to our visit. We were greeted promptly and led to their "Family Room" (it has a much fancier Italian name that I don't recall)... very private and quiet, but still with a great view (amazing).
Our server's name was Solomon (not sure of spelling)... gracious, attentive, no hovering, helpful with menu items, etc... he and his colleagues were simply wonderful at serving, removing, pouring (all those things that make you realize just how pleasant dining out can be). Each of us just loved our meals and the wine... they have the freshest seafood ever, and the wine was presented at the perfect temperature (yes, this is a big deal).
I highly recommend Alioto's and hope that I will again someday be able to return!
Amazing Food, wonder service
Excellent meal, we were a group of 6 and everyone enjoyed the dinner. Highly recommend!!
Completely outdated. Good decent but nothing unique.
We had the best experience on a work trip for ONEHOPE wine. Tim was our server and he was AWESOME. Great food!
excellent food and great service to match, sat at a table with a great view of the port and Golden Gate bridge
Beautiful view in great location, but server was terrible. Paid $4 for soft drinks, but waiter rarely came around to give refills. Food was great once it was fixed properly and waiter came along to even check on us. Again. Food and atmosphere was fine, but sadly disappointed with service. Need more help for this cost of roughly $70/person with meal, drinks and appetizers.
Although Alioto’s has been one of my favorite restaurants in Fishermans Wharf, this current experience was not a good one. The Salmon Kalbi and Sicilian Seafood Stew we’re both salty and lacked taste. Same with rice pilaf.
Clam chowder was good. We had a charming view from our table and parking is validated for the nearby parking lot.
Overall food quality was pretty good but the service leaves a lot to be desired. The maître d’ was very helpful in getting us seated because we had made reservations which definitely helped. The lobster Thermidor was very good and the scallops were also nicely done.
Excellent food and service. My favorite place when I’m in San Francisco
