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.

With outside seating along the Embarcadero, the view was fabulous. The service was terrific, and the food appropriate for most foodies. Our reservation was on time and we were not rushed through our meal.

We look forward Perry's in the future.

We had the filet mignonette and sole. The proportions were large and the fish was the we best I’ve ever eaten and I’m old! Very enjoyable experience. Highly recommend

Our server was great -- very nice and attentive ... and efficient, good at her job. The outdoor dining areas are lovely, front or back. I wanted to be out front with the view of bay and bridge. My kids prevailed in their wish to sit in the back and it was really lovely, less dramatic but also less bustling and noisy. The food was all good, nothing particularly notable or memorable but it was all good. Perry's is a solid choice for a family dinner, low key with something on the menu to please everyone.

From the host to the service to the food it was a wonderful experience. Felt like everyone went out of their way to make you happy. Did not feel like an inconvenience at all. Every request was met with a smile. It was a beautiful day in the city and a beautiful meal with friends.

We love Perry’s when we visit. Only major issue. All windows open with a very cool day. Everyone in restaurant wore their coats to eat dinner. Very chilly inside. Will skip Perry’s on next visit even with good service and good. Another strange pandemic setting.

Four friends and I went to Perry's for lunch on Memorial Day. They weren't prepared for the holiday, for some reason, so they were much more slammed than they expected to be; service was slow but pleasant. Regardless, we had a great time and the food was good.

One note was that we were outside, and our table was the only one that had no shade at all in the afternoon, so a couple of my friends got pretty fried. (Bring a hat and covering if you're sitting outside during the day.)

This was my first visit to this location. (I had only been to the Union Street location and that was well over 15 years ago).

The food and drinks were very good and the service was as good as anyone could possibly ask for. Everyone is very accommodating and we had the advantage of having a beautiful night to dine out on the Embarcadero.

We decided to go to Perry's because we associate the name with a high quality, unpretentious dining experience and it proved to be a very good call. If you want to recommend a place to someone, this is a safe victory.

This is about what you'd expect from a restaurant blessed with this location. Mediocre at best. The most boring bloody mary anywhere.

The service was excellent - wonderful staffers!!

I ordered the Ribs - would never order them again. The Ribs were not up to my expectations; really didn't like them. The cornbread was delicious!
Mentioning >My pet-peeve San Francisco restaurants allow animals that are not legitimate service animals; pet owners in this city are so disrespectful. Perhaps
next time I should bring my pet python (Millicent)

When we got there, the host was very rude. He didn’t even acknowledge us and he sent his bartender to seat us. Then when we wanted to move because we were right by the door and it was cold, we had to wait about 10 minutes to get his attention so we ended up having to get someone else to move us. Other than that, the food was excellent and came out relatively quickly and was super tasty! Our waitress was friendly and had a good attitude.

It was great to be back at Perry's on The Embarcadero!
It is one of my favorite SF restaurants.
The view of the Bay Bridge and water is always a treat.
The service was spot on and the food was delicious.

Extremely busy and very loud. The main problem was we were being served by 2 waiters. The backup waiter took the order. He misinformed of us about 2 meals... I asked for a replacement on the first but didn't bother about the second. Maybe he was being trained or couldn't hear us as the surrounding noise was high and our masks were too thick!! I'm glad restaurants are open and everyone seemed so happy.
