Perry’s on the Embarcadero is a sleek waterfront outpost of the Union Street original, following the same combination of all-American favorite fare and comfortable, welcoming service that Perry’s first made a San Francisco hallmark in 1969. The décor is warm – murals reminiscent of the memorabilia made famous on Union Street, combined with exposed brick walls, a wood-burning fireplace and breathtaking views of the Bay and the Bay Bridge.

Perry’s is known today, as much as ever, for its classic American food, its warm personable service and its fun, bustling bar. Perry's traditional yet innovative menu includes a wide variety of sandwiches, salads, pastas, steaks and grilled fresh fish. Perry’s on the Embarcadero is conveniently located in the heart of San Francisco’s bustling financial district, across the street from the Ferry Building, less than a mile from AT&T Park and easy to reach by public transportation from all over the city and the greater Bay Area.

Our server was inhospitable and not trained. He reluctantly took the remains of the butter dish left on our table but never brought us a new one! Honest! He did not present dessert menus to our lady guests . Simple desserts took a long time to serve . I am a long time customer who may not return. No sight of the manager at all!

Perry's is our usual go-to at lunch. Always consistent. We've been seated towards the front of the restaurant the last several times but this time I asked for the booth or table facing the Embarcadero! They noted the request, and voila we had a nice booth. Food and service are always consistent. Thank you Perry's!

It’s our go-to place and call it the “Clubhouse”. Great vibe and excellent food. I love the petrale sole dish and the martinis are the best in town. In addition, they have half-off wine nights. For many reasons, this restaurant is truly one of the best around.

Perry's-Embarcadero is my "go to" choice when I have friends coming into town. My friend and I went for Saturday brunch and, as usual, the service was excellent and the food very good. You can't go wrong whether you have a taste for breakfast food or lunch. The burgers are amazing! Delicious, juicy, and just the right size. My friend enjoyed a simple breakfast of scrambled eggs, avocado and bacon. Yum! I'll be back again soon!

Perry's is a happening bar with an excellent restaurant in a great location. The well-stocked bar delivers both routine drinks and top drawer craft cocktails. Weather was unseasonably beautiful when we were there in February, so we spent two evenings seated outdoors on the Embarcadero side facing the harbor and Bay Bridge - absolutely perfect! The menu is varied, and food deliciously prepared and promptly served. I enjoyed the Petrale Sole Meuniere, a San Francisco classic. This is a great place for anytime dining, business meet-ups or date night. I highly recommend it to locals and visitors alike!

Always enjoy eating at Perry's for good comfort food. Was surprised that on a Wednesday night every table seemed to be taken. As with most restaurants in SF, when there are large parties, the noise level keeps rising.
The only complaint was when placing the reservation on Open Table we indicated that it was a Birthday celebration, but no mention was made of it at the restaurant.

One of my dining experience pet peeves is ordering an appetizer or start dish and hoping it arives before the meal. I had to inquire about our appetizer because there seemed to be a long delay bewteen the request and the delivery of the dish. This was topped by the meal order coming out before the appetizer being finished, which required it to be returned to the kitchen. Overall, the meal was good, dessert was great, and I'd go back for a special occasion.

I like Perry's for service, good food and reasonable prices. The staff is fast and accommodating. There is a wide choice of options on the menu--salads, meats and fish, breakfast items, etc. They are all well prepared in my experience. They even have specials some evenings. Compared to the downtown hotels which now want $25 for bacon and eggs, Perry's price is a much better value. I would not call it quiet, but you can still discuss things without much trouble. Overall a good value for a variety of good food quickly served.

I have eaten at Perry’s for years and their food is fine, but increasingly, the Saturday noon time menu is extremely limited. Clearly it is a brunch with breakfast items with very few lunch options unless one wants breakfast. We will not go to Perry’s on Saturday unless we want only a limited brunch. Hard to get in on Sunday.

We ordered the chicken quesadilla and also the beet / goat cheese salad. Both were well prepared, and seasoned well. The food is flavorful but not spicy. There are spicy dishes on the menu, but we opted to order mild items.

I don't think I have been to Perry's Embarcadero in over 9 years - just really a matter of not working in the area. It was mini-girls' reunion - we were seated in the back - which was thankful - since I had forgotten how loud the bar area - and/or close to the bar can get. Our waiter (Jessie) was delightful.
