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.

Wonderful service, great outdoor, bay view ambiance. Three great sandwiches and one southwestern chicken salad that was a bit bland. Overall, very enjoyable!

Great dinner! The outside dining area is nicely done. The french fries were amazing. Our server and then entire staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable.

My friend and I had a salad, cup of soup, hot tea, Diet Coke and split dessert. This came to $60, which I think is high. Parking was more of a challenge due to restaurants outdoor seating on the street. It was lovely to be outdoors on a beautiful day, just had higher expectations on value of what was ordered.

Sitting right next to the street is tough... the motorcycles were out in full force. The view can’t be beat. Chicken strips are meh but the pot roast was nice.

Experience was ruined when the host pulled one of those, “you two can’t sit there because that table is reserved for a party of 4” but ended up sitting a couple down instead. We ended up sitting in the sun. It was uncomfortable but made the most of it. Our waitress Merry was great - I just didn’t care much for the dishonest host. Also as a vegetarian, I ordered the impossible burger. No one didn’t immediately know the base of the burger was discouraging. It tasted like the burger was cooked with the same meat oil.

Got sat in the back alley so no bay view. It was also very cold with no heaters. Waiter was lacking personality and pretty much forgot about us after our food was served. He never asked if we wanted a second drink and we had to flag him down for the check when he walked by us several times clearly seeing that we were finished with our meal. The salads were disappointing- the beet salad was basically lettuce and dressing, very few actual beets. The southwestern chicken salad would have been great if the chicken wasn’t grossly over cooked. There was also literally one cherry tomato which was weird. The sweet potato fries were great, thank God we ordered those. Overall not a good experience, the Union street location was much more enjoyable.

Perry’s needs to update Opentable about their hours. We had a reservation for 8pm and were told upon arrival that they close at 8pm but would seat us if we ordered quickly.

We had wonderful salad entrees, three different ones, the Southwest Salad, the Cobb Salad, and the Ceasar with Chicken. While two of these were spot on and fresh, the Ceasar salad's chicken was tough and dry, which was not eaten.

Other than this the appetizers of Potato Skins and Calamari were fine.

The Grgich Hills Chardonnay was spot on and delicious.

the waiter gets a special call out for racing around and waiting on many tables, yet still made it a point to check in on us....which we appreciated.

I really like the location of the Perry’s.
Being able to sit outside and see the lights of the Bay Bridge and the activity on the street is do normal and refreshing.
The food is consistent. I had the calamari but wouldn’t order it again. It’s one of my favorites but not particularly special at Perry’s. I just enjoyed being there after months of restaurant shutdowns.
I’ll go back but order something else.
The service is attentive but not intrusive.

Great outdoor dining space. You feel far from others, but still apart of a social dining experience. They have dining areas in the Embarcadero entrance side and on the Stuart entrance side. Have always loved the food (and the cocktails) at all Perry’s locations!!! And our service was fantastic. There was a 1 hr and 30 min time max currently due to COVID, but that is more than enough time!!

Given the circumstances of COVID, we were impressed with the responsiveness of the Perry's staff. The arrangement for outside dining was well thought out, providing each table adequate distance. The outdoor heaters, planters, and screens made it cozy, while making you feel safe. Diner was delicious. We has calamari, Ny Steak & Pot Roast, perfectly prepared, as well as dessert. The server was attentive and providing excellent options. I'd return.

To start, we got the tomato bisque which was really good so we were excited for our mains that sounded good. Our main meals looked and tasted like a TV dinner. Not worth the money or time.

Really wanted to enjoy it, been a long time not dining out due to covid but unfortunately, we were quite let down. Maybe other meals are good, but I don’t recommend.
