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.

Came for lunch yesterday. We had a nice outdoor table and our server was quite good. Our table of 4 all enjoyed our dishes. We were impressed with the quality of the food. Next time, I'll ask for my salad dressing on the side so I can control the amount. There was too much on the salad, for my taste. We'll be back.

We had excellent delicious arugula salad so full of flavor and petrole sole. Professional staff was very accommodating in our request to change tables. We can't thank them enough. Can't wait to go back and try something new, even though we've been there before and never disappointed with our choices.

Classic SF stable favorite. Menu is varied and good pricing!
However, outside tables on the Embarcadero should have a better arrangement including a barricade to move bikes, scooters and homeless away from the diners. Maybe will have a couple fewer tables but it will be safer. Diners will have fewer/ sad intrusions.
Fine & fun -wherever location: that’s Perry’s!

Great location near the Ferry Building and Pier 24 Photography Gallery which was our ultimate destination. Table on the Embarcadero side was breezy with a view of the water. Food was basic American, but very good. The New England clam chowder was a standout. Service couldn’t have been better.

Perry's is an old stand-by - it's one of the few places along the Embarcadero that is open in that limbo time between lunch and dinner. i had the tomato bisque which excellent; the beet and arugula salad was OK. They could probably make it a little smaller; one odd thing was that the chevre croquettes were a bit tasteless which is odd with such a strong-flavored cheese.

We ordered a hamburger medium rare but it was well done. After we advised him that it wasn’t done properly, they made a second one that burned on the outside and almost raw in the middle. They took it off the bill, but that was the only concession they made.

Shaded outside table (per request) with great view of the bridge. Lunch with friends so pretty obsessed with catching up. Our server was excellent - there when you needed her, but not invasive - much appreciated. Refills on beverages and time to sit after finishing our salads. Our focus was being together and the perfect ambiance.

We had an outside table on the Embarcadero - the table service was excellent. The noise was uneven as traffic including trucks and Harley's contributed to the noise level.

I had bacon and eggs over easy. They were properly prepared. The bloody Mary was good.

I made a reservation to seat outside facing pier 14. However, the manager insisted that my reservation for outside seating is not guaranteed. We ended up seating inside the resto in a lousy corner. Not a happy camper. I was trying to impress my friend to enjoy the view. But we’re disappointed.
