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.

Fantastic service. Very attentive. We go out to eat often and have found service the last several months is lacking. Not here. Service was the best we have had in several months. Food very good, wedge salad, clam chowder, salmon, spaghetti and apple Betty. Wine list was small but good selections. Perry’s Chardonnay was good as was their dirty gin martini. We would definitely go back next time we are in SF.

I like the variety of food on the menu. Variety of soups and salads, appetizers, main courses and side dishes. Sandwiches sound delicious but I really enjoyed my filet mignon steak with mac and cheese and creamed spinach. I highly recommend this restaurant, casual yet sophisticated menu. Great location on the Embarcadero with great indoor and outdoor dining.

Simple food, well prepared. We thought it was going to be terribly touristy but to our surprise it was not. They messed a bit our order but nothing terrible. Salads were delicious!

The outdoor dining space is quite noisy due to the vehicles on the nearby street. Having non-patron pedestrians walking through the dining area also makes it less peaceful.

The calamari was excellent, but the brunch overall did not impress. Service was a little slow and disjointed but the staff was nice and friendly. I would go back again to try their dinner menu. There are better brunch options to checkout in the vicinity.

Excellent service and friendly atmosphere. The food was delicious and well-prepared, not overcooked, over seasoned, or out of balance. We had the Baby Back BBQ Ribs and the Grilled Salmon. The ribs fell off the bone, tender and juicy. The Salmon was grilled medium and fresh! Highly recommend!

Excellent lunch for 4--from the grilled artichoke to the chowder, calamari, club sandwich, burgers and wedge salad--everything was tasty and healthy portions. Portions were enough to take some home! Our server was attentive without hovering. Food came to our table in timely but well paced. Sadly, we live out of the area but would definitely like to try the dinner menu the next time we visiting San Francisco!

Everything there is okay.. very disappointed that they confirmed we would be outside and then they said everything was reserved and we could not.. sitting outside was the reason we chose that place. I saw this happen to 2 other people while we were there. They need to get there s**t together.

wonderful service, fresh delicious food. Sit outside for a great view but bring a scarf. The goat cheese croquettes, served with the beat salad could be an appetizer all by themselves.

Eating outside in the afternoon is nice since you are near the water and behind you is a view of the Bay Bridge. Food is good and close to Oracle park to watch a Giant's game.
