    A must visit spot when in San Francisco. Their clam chowder and bread bowls are not to be missed. This location also has a gift shop and bakery on site.

    Food is wonderful! Visiting from out of state and wanted to come back from 6 years ago. The restaurant is a great location and ambiance is good. Our waitress was short with comments and not helpful. Did not check on us or refill water.

    We went specifically for the Soup Bread Bowls. The soups were tasty, but honestly could have been hotter. The service was attentive, we had a very nice gentleman attending to our table. I'm not sure if they had enough staff to accommodate all their sections, but the hostesses need to space out the diners and then fill in. We sat down and within 10 minutes were crowded in, and it didn't need to be that way, as there were still empty tables on the other side of the section. Didn't like that feeling. Otherwise, everything was fine. Nothing out of the ordinary and we enjoyed our lunch.

    Good dinner in landmark restaurant. But how does a restaurant this size NOT have a teabag? Wonderful chocolate lava cake but no tea? Shame on them!! A bonus to the dinner was watching the bakers making sourdough in ground floor bakery. And a nice souvenir shop.

    The girl that checked us in could be a little more friendly. So that was disappointing. Our server was great! He was attentive without being intrusive. Brought all the extras we asked for. Just overall pleasant. I don't remember his name but his wife's name was Triana (we had a conversation since my niece is named Kiana). Food delicious as always.

    Thoroughly enjoyed a glass of Rombauer Sauvignon Blanc with our Petrale Sole entree, out on the balcony, with heaters on to cut a late morning chill. The view of the Bay, pelicans, seagulls and tourists all having fun was a bonus. Ended lunch with a blackberry sauce poured over a creamy cheesecake... yum. Kenny was attentive, professional and as it turned out, knew a mutual friend. Hope you make a reservatiin soon!

    Menu is mostly seafood, and has good non-seafood options. The fresh Dungeness crab Louie salad was wonderful with a lovely presentation. The shrimp in the jumbo prawn/shrimp cocktail were huge. The corn and crab chowder in a small bread bowl was delicious. Good by-the-glass wines. Service was attentive, professional, and friendly. Great dinner!

    The night we were there, it was very busy. We arrived early so we had a glass of wine at the bar, and then we’re called to be seated and a little early which was fine. But the food was mediocre and the service was very slow. Not sure if we would return again.
