Franciscan Crab Restaurant
Cibo ottimo e tipico della zona portuale di San Francisco
Servizio poco preciso e menefreghista
Velocità della cucina nel far uscire i piatti davvero buona e rapporto qualità prezzo corretto
The main point that detracted from the dinner was a homeless guy outside the window pulling his pants down while my 5 year daughter was looking out the window. We asked for a window seat for the view of the water and Alcatraz not a guy exposing himself.
Excellent! Fast service but not too rushed. Fresh crab!
Vacation meal, fun time!!!
My wife and I came here for our 10 year anniversary. We decided to come here because this is the restaurant we came to for our first year anniversary. We loved our trip here. We made reservations through opentable which was super easy. We were stuck in heavy traffic and we were running late and the restaurant held our table for us. When were got there we were seated right away. We had requested a table with a view through the app and we were not disappointed. We had such an amazing view of the bay. We had such great service. I felt as though we were royalty because of how fast our service was. The waiter was very attentive. The food was so delicious. We barely saved room for dessert. When the waiter brought us our dessert, he was so sweet, he even brought us a little treat for our anniversary. We had an overall amazing experience and we will definitely come back here. We also definitely recommend this place to anyone who can get a chance to visit here.
Great service, beautiful view of Alcatraz and water, nice presentation of the food. The clam chowder was watery and didn't have much to it. I would not order again. We ordered 2 crabs and the presentation on a hot iron skillet was really nice. However, it did not taste so fresh or moist. It was good, but not great. And, given the price, I felt it should have been much better. The filet mignon was really good and probably the highlight. The ice cream sundae felt like it had been prepared in advance and frozen. While it tasted good, it didn't feel fresh. The view is great and I would come for a drink or app in the future.
Four of us dined at The Franciscan, for a birthday celebration. Everything was perfect. This was the other couple’s first visit to The Franciscan, and they thoroughly enjoyed it.
I think the food we got here was good, not the best we've ever had, but average. I had the cioppino, someone had the fish and chips, and another member of our party had the pick your fish and way of preparing it. One weird thing was that they could not accommodate a preference for only regular potatoes in my son's fries. They have a mixture of white potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, and I think olives and could not make a batch of just white potatoes. Why not? For this amount of money, I think we'd have a scratch kitchen and something like that is a non-issue. I was actually surprised when they said no to that. I'd say we all enjoyed our meal, but service was really fast, so in my opinion, that kinda cheapened the experience and made it feel like they just wanted to turn over tables. Not blaming them, I guess, as the restaurant is located in a prime tourism spot. We did really enjoy the waterfront scenery, so that made it a memorable experience. Waitress was very pleasant and someone always came around and refilled our water glasses, etc. Overall, a good experience, but it's probably not a place I'd return to with so many other choices in San Francisco.
My 3 teenagers and I surprised my husband and took him there for his 42nd birthday. We all really enjoyed it, but the waiter forgot that it was his birthday.
Just over priced for the amt of food. Wasn't wowed for the money spent. The view was nice.
Great restaurant on Fisherman's Wharf.Lovely food ,great ambience ,views and staff.
The service staff was attentive and polite. The washroom was poorly maintained. Drinks and food were overly pricey and the quality could be better. The mussels and crab needed to be better cleaned prior to cooking. Calamari was over battered and tasteless. Nothing too exciting about the house salad.
We ordered off the Prixe Fixe menu. It was a good deal for $39.99. The clam chowder was very good. The seafood was fresh. I’m not much of an ice cream eater, but the frozen custard dessert tasted great.
The bread was delicious!
Ordered a Caesar salad that was good, but the chicken on it was old and dry. The two pasta dishes that were ordered were good, as was the espresso.
Acceptable meal because the view was outstanding.
Wonderful view and service with delicious bread and butter. Dishes are a tad salty.
we had the double crab and shrimp platter and 6 raw oysters. Double crab & shrimp didn't look like a double. the oyster sauce wasn't that great. I loved the service (Jupiter was his name?) I dunno...hahahaha
Food was very good, but was on the expensive side. Service was very friendly. Views were great.
A must visit restaurant - unique cuisine in a stylish setting.
This restaurant offers spectacular views of Alcatraz and the surrounding bay. The crab and steamer claims are both a must try when visiting this establishment!
Always excellent service, great prices and WONDERFUL mussels!
Great restaurant! Visit when in town.
Very unique and creative menu. Fun ambiance. Great service. The wine list could be better. Not many choices. Would prefer higher quality wines available.
Beautiful day, so Alcatraz, Angel Island and Pier 39 were on full display through the large bay-facing window. Convenient free parking across the street. Never had a bad time here.
Table was not ready until 25 minutes after our reservation. Service was generally slow and server forgot to give us utensils for the crab. Food was fine and the view is pretty, but probably won’t be back.
This waitress Gulbarshin was great. She has unbelievable way of making averyone comfortable even in crowded corner. I loved her smile, politeness, courtesy and integrity! I will definitel come back again to have this excellent food, nice view and beautifull waitresses like Gulbarshin!
