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.

Ended up at Perry's on Thanksgiving. Wonderful experience. Great food and drinks. Service was outstanding. Had a great time. So much so that we went back two nights later, had two of our three dinners in San Francisco here while in town.

Service at Perry's Embarcadero was very attentive. The fried calamari was terrific, the tuna tartar was not to everyone's taste in our group. The entrees, although few in number, were varied and well presented. Among the members of our dinner party we ordered the Sole Meuniere, the traditional Turkey Dinner and the Lamb Shank. The stuffing was less than stellar and the sauce on the lamb was a bit heavy handed. The value was right on.

My team at work goes on group lunches to Perry's frequently, and the food has always been fantastic. The service can be a little hit and miss. Our recent visit was on the "miss" side of things this time. The service was very slow. The bar beverages took forever to arrive. The starter salad arrived with the entree. The server was polite and apologized for the delays. We love Perry's!

I'd recommend Perry's, and have dined there on numerous occasions. My one qualm was how the 3 persons in the party that ordered Bloody Mary's were all very disappointed with their beverages. The only accoutrement was a slice of lemon, and it was served in a small wine glass. They all exchanged glances of confusion, and the drink itself was reportedly devoid of any taste. Not good. The meal itself and service, however, was well received.

Our server was wonderful and quite expert. Very loud environment and difficult to hold a conversation, but other than this, a meal at Perry’s is always fantastic. Perhaps, consider installation of noise level reducers.

Food was not good. We ate brunch here. Potatoes were hard and toast had no butter on it. Corned beef hash just had big hunks of corned beef. Service was not so friendly. No reason to go back.

Really nice to find a nice place to get a good and reasonable breakfast. Tasty food, great service and fair prices. Great environment for a casual business meeting or just enjoying a nice step up from your basic breakfast sandwich at your traditional coffee chain. Obviously a great choice for lunch or dinner.

Always a good stat by for us as well just live a few blocks away. Their specials are great! One Sunday my wife had the lobster and it was tasty. On Sundays I generally go for the Pot Roast, again tasty. On our last visit had the Fried Chicken and it was really good. They have a nice selection of wine, beer and cocktails to mix with your food. The staff is always very friendly. On the plus side I was able to watch the inner game as well!

Used to be awesome for breakfast. The last few times, it has not been great. Today the food was cold and the service was pretty poor. I used to make it a point of coming here whenever I was in town, I won't be doing that anymore.

Kitchen was very slow. The rest of my table was served and my food came out 5 minutes later. No explanation, no apology until we were leaving. We really like Perry's and will go back. It just must have been a bad night.

The reason to me going back was because the service was out of this world great.! My second time wasn’t like the first visit and I went roughly around the same time.
I had 3 different people take my drink order, which one drink took so long. so I gave my order to someone (received it) then MY service was pressing me because the bartender already made my drink. So that made me uncomfortable.

Most restaurant I start off with a 30 as a tip, the service was so bad I only left 17.

While the overall experience was very good, the service was outstanding. Our group of 4 was accommodated in every way. Service was cheerful and efficient. We were meeting with friends we don't see often and had lots of information to exchange. The best was that the wait staff didn't interrupt by asking, "Hey, guys, how is everything?" Thanks, Perry's!

If you’re looking for Peruvian food this is a good place. Our waiter was not helpful in describing what the sauce names meant. He seemed annoyed by us so we just ordered without asking anymore questions. Luckily our food was good but I would’ve chosen something else if I had more info. Later, other employees came to see if we were happy, that was nice and made us feel like someone cared.
