Angler is a sea-life focused restaurant with views of the expansive wood burning hearth as well of the San Francisco Bay from Chef Joshua Skenes and Saison Hospitality. Each day’s inspiration is drawn from the products themselves and is an articulation of their natural flavors, served at their peak taste. We work with a small group of fishermen, hunters, gatherers, ranchers, and farmers to find and follow microclimates that produce the highest quality products in local existence. All of the cooking revolves around open wood fire and a fireplace designed for Chef Skenes's unique methodology, techniques, and tools for extracting the best tastes in our products. The expansive cellar features a particular emphasis on the wines of Burgundy as well as benchmark producers from our backyard in Napa and Sonoma. The bar program features carefully curated spirits from well-known and small-batched distillers, to specially sourced selections that date back sev

    Went the last night before the madness and shutdown. And grimaced a bit when the previously not-unusual spiel was given that all dishes are meant to be shared. The radicchio salad is a standout unique signature dish! Everything tasted and was presented well, though some of the dishes sizing is a letdown. View of the Bay Bridge is wonderful.

    Incredible hospitality and delicious thoughtful cuisine. If you enjoy putting your dining experience into the hands of others definitely let them cook for you. House made butter is outstanding, wine list extensive and all around one of the more enjoyable meals in recent memory.

    Superb cuisine, beautiful decor and location. Only two things need refining at Angler: the place is very noisy in the evenings, and wait staff interrupted conversation at our table many times.

    The restaurant's menu is designed as shared plates. We thought the food was not outstanding and super expensive for what you get. The cocktails and wine were also very expensive and the pours were not big.

    Good cavalier, oysters and scallops. Roasted vegetables also hit the spot. Nice burgundy wines to pair. Service is borderline stuffy/pretentious. Great for a warm day when you can sit outside and just grab a glass of wine/appetizer.

    The staff seems overwhelmed by the number of tables. The music is so loud that the backwaiter could not hear and tried multiple times to clear our plates even though we told him we were not finished. The oysters and sea urchin were fantastic but the swordfish and scallops were only fair especially considering the price. The flavor was bland the dishes were served cold and only seared on one side. This restaurant is way overpriced for the quality of the food, service and ambiance. We would definitely not return.

    The food & service was great, but I ordered The wine and after looking at my bill today I was charged the wrong wine. I ordered The Vincent Pinard Flor at $77 a bottle, the wine apparently brought to me was The Vincent Pinard Chene Marchand at $140! I was brought the wrong wine and over charged $63! Please refund my $63!!!

    Outstanding service, great food, but...$300 a person for a tasting menu that is mostly vegetables. Like cmon...most of these ingredients you can find at Whole Foods and prepare yourself. Nothing really mind-blowing and I can only imagine this restaurant has INSANE margins given the ingredients. I won’t be returning, rather would spend $300 on an Omakase with luxurious ingredients that leaves me full.

    amazing flavors, good portion size, and very creative. perhaps only one dish fell short, out of many. a bit of an overbooking issue forced us to wait 1/2 hour, followed by a mistake that resulted in our table being given to others, but that made us go to the bar where we had some pretty darn amazing mixed cocktails. great place, deserving of the michelin star.

    Many timing lapses with our waiter. Brought wrong cocktails. Waited 20 minutes for cocktails. Told us of how our sequencing of our meal would arrive and then totally the opposite. Overall a very expensive dinner for good food and mediocre service. With all the service personnel that were there nobody was orchestrating the flow and timing over staffed and under performed

    Ate here for brunch with 3 other people. Food was good, but service was nowhere close to what I'd expect at this caliber of restaurant. We ordered caviar after our waiter explained that it would come with blinis and various toppings included. The blinis and toppings never arrived to our table, and after 20 minutes we inquired about when they would be ready. We were told that they were unavailable at brunch, contrary to what we were told when we ordered the dish. An incorrect description of such an expensive add-on was a surprising mistake for a restaurant, especially given its price point. We were not offered anything in return for this mistake - not even a brief discussion from a manager or supervisor to apologize. Overall disappointed that this restaurant did not live up to the hype. Perhaps dinner service is better. Would not return.

    Was expecting to have a "wow" on each of the dishes, unfortunately several were just "OK". The fire fly squid and blow fish tails did nothing for me. Rather bland and did not make me want another bite. The blow fish tails were tough and dry. Hen of the forest mushrooms were wonderful, urchin and desserts were well done
