About the restaurant
62 years of loyal customers can't be wrong. We are grateful to all of our customers, employees, and critics (...though we may not always agree!). The only way to find out the truth is with a visit. Oft imitated, never duplicated. Thank you in advance.

About the restaurant
Inspired by the thousands of cebicherias found throughout Peru, La Mar Cebicheri­a Peruana, was created as an attempt to globalize and enshrine one of the best guarded treasures of Peruvian cuisine: cebiche, Peruvian seafood and the scenery created to enjoy them, the Peruvian style cebicheria.

As a longtime SF diner I was pleasantly surprised by my first experience at La Mar. It is obviously a very well managed restaurant. The food is excellent, service impeccable, value relative to a fine dining experience is very high. I am planning my next visit already. Bravo La Mar!

About the restaurant
Kokkari (pronounced “Ko-Kar-ee”) is a small fishing village located on the islands of Samos in the Aegean Sea, whose name is derived from the small onions that were once produced in the nearby fields. Its fertile soil and Mediterranean climate translated into an abundance of fresh produce as well as treasured seafood and game. Legend tells that Kokkari is the site where Orion, a mighty hunter and a young man of gigantic stature and great beauty, fell in love with the daughter of the king of Chios. For the love of her, Orion forged the island for wild game and seafood to prepare elaborate banquets in celebration of their love. Today, we hope you will enjoy your own celebration as you dine at Kokkari Estiatorio on food “fit for the Gods” prepared with an Aegean palate and the style of innovative California fare.

Phenomenal service. We tried many small plates, including two specials not on the menu, followed a special dessert also not on the menu. Everything was delicious. We’ll definitely go back.

First time at Greens and we really enjoyed it! Loved that there were a lot of vegan options(for me) but also vegetarian for my fellow dining friends. Was excited for the friend enoki mushrooms but they were a little greasier than expected. All of the other food we had was great; the grilled tofu, snap pea salad, eggplant dip was delicious. Will definitely go back to try more dishes!

About the restaurant
***Scoma's gladly welcomes reservations, as well as walk-in guests on a first come first served basis. You can also call 415.771.4383 during our operation hours for assistance with reservations. ***


Our Fisherman's Wharf seafood restaurant is steeped in a family tradition of quality and service. Still family owned and operated, Scoma’s opened in 1965, when brothers Al and Joe Scoma took over a six table coffee shop serving fishermen on the wharf. Using their mother’s recipe collection, the Scoma brothers' humble café evolved over the years becoming the quintessential San Francisco dining destination it is today.

Our family of 6, kids are 21-11 years old absolutely loved the sea food. My husband and I thought the cocktails were perfectly made. The espresso martini was delicious. The atmosphere was both classy yet laid back after a long day at the pier. Definitely our favorite stop. Highly recommend going here.

Good food but too expensive for standard Mexican fare. Disappointed there weren’t any moles. A 5% fee for an already overpriced Mexican meal is way too high. Service was wonderful

Delighted to enjoy authentic dim sum in the heart of San Francisco during my visit from Hong Kong. The service was also excellent, just like I am used to at home.

Menu is a bit limited but everything was outstanding. We had the porchetta, White Sea bass, and for dessert the pavlova and the plum sorbet with Mexican wedding cookies, all really good. Also a nice wine list.
