I visit Cioppino’s every time I visit The City and always recommend it to anyone who asks me where to get great seafood in San Francisco.

The staff is attentive and friendly without being overbearing, and the food is always amazing.

I recommend the calamari appetizer. The coating is so light and the meat soft and tender.

We spent New Years Eve in San Francisco and Cioppino’s was a delight! The food was delicious, the atmosphere busy but controlled and being right on Fisherman’s Wharf there was a great vibe with so many people out and about! The warm sourdough bread was delicious. We had a yummy caprese salad and I had linguine with clams and my husband had the cheese tortellini with crab! We were so stuffed we couldn’t even think about dessert. We will have to try the Cioppino on our next trip!

The food was really good, but the service was even better! They had multiple very large parties near us, but still managed to take care of everything we needed. We were quite impressed with how the waiters and waitresses worked extremely well together to ensure every table was provided attentive service. Well done!!

Cioppino was great! I booked for lunch, but it was not necessary for lunch time because it is not crowded so much.

Careful of the pricing. They added a 4.5% surcharge on the end of the bill with no prior notice for employee benifits.

The food was OK, the service was lagging we didn’t get our salad that we ordered until after dinner was served. That was disappointing considering the restaurant was pretty much empty.

It was awesome. We were visiting from out of town. The twinkle lights everywhere were pretty. The service was excellent. And the food was superb. It was our first time there and every time we visit SF which is at least once a year we will make sure to visit Cioppino’s!

It’s become a family tradition. Anytime we meet up with family or friends in San Francisco we go to Cioppino’s. We met with family for Thanksgiving and so grateful our favorite restaurant available. Thank you for the wonderful food and the amazing customer service considering such a busy day our waitress was very attentive and friendly.

They added an unexpected 4.5% to the bill stating it was to help off-set employer costs. Otherwise everything was fantastic.

Love coming here I could drink their sangria all day and the roasted garlic crab is seasoned perfectly. Everything we had was delicious. This is definitely in my rotation of restaurants I frequent.

While the food is consistent and hot and served fast, the taste is very average and not exciting at all. Good street food is how I would describe it. For the money I think it is a good spot for tourists with families.

Great for fresh seafood. We ordered the fried calamari appetizer which was great. The mussel appetizer (tomato and ?prosciutto) was fresh but a bit too salty. Highlight was the cioppino. The additional $5 is worth it to have them take the crab meat out of the shell.

Great service. Foods might not be the best, but pretty good. We ordered Cioppino’s, clam chowder, seafood pizza, and seafood pasta. If the restaurant was located at the Union Square, I would revisit it.

Signature dish was excellent, many reasonably priced dishes. Good service. Enough alcohol in drinks. Not as fancy as some other choices, but that can be a plus.
