I did not think it was a pleasant dining experience.
We have been there several times. The service, wine list and atmosphere are all very good but the food has become very average.
Sehr schönes, eindrückliches Ambiente. Ausgezeichnetes Essen (frisches, leckeres Brot zur Vorspeise!!), frisch zubereitet mit offener Küche. Freundliche Bedienung. Meiner Meinung nach etwas überteuert.
Absolutely fantastic food and dining experience. The price points were actually not bad. The service was great! Thank you guys.
My favorite restaurant in San Francisco.
Birthday for my friend. The seafood was old and it tasted fishy and had that soft mouth feel that you get when fish, calamari and oysters begin to decay. Our server, Katja was very attentive to start the meal but we did not see her for the last 30 minutes when I needed her to send my tuna back because it was horrible.
The noise was insanely loud and the staff allowed a child to be on their iPad with the volume so loud that all tables around were visibly bothered.
I think the restaurant is resting on it’s laurels. It used to be amazing, but lately it’s less than average.
Did not live up to the hype. Food was salty and did not taste fresh. Will not be back.
This restaurant has been a staple in San Francisco for more than 25 years. The food quality and service have all remained consistent over that time. There really is nothing there that isn’t fantastic.
Really unusual venue. Menu is a bit limited, service is good. Worked well for a nice date.
Always excellent in every category, Delicious Creative food, freshest of ingredients great wine list and overall consistently perfect😋👏
This was our second visit to Farallon and it did not disappoint!! Everything was superb from our entering to leaving: great food and super service!
The food and ambiance was great. Our waiter was AMAZING!
Very Nice restaurant in the hart of San Francisco. Very friendly service but noisy!
The menu is much smaller than the last time I was there. I was unimpressed by the fish selections. Sorry to see a former great restaurant in decline.
Food was excellent. Server was rather disinterested and needed to be reminded of requests for bread and beverages. Our chief complaint was about the bill. We ordered 2 plates of plain pasta with butter for our granddaughters (ages 5 & 6), and added a piece of plain salmon for them to share. When the bill arrived, we saw that we were charged for a third complete salmon dinner (we had ordered 2 full salmon meals for adults), although we were not informed that this would be the case when the order was placed. Had we known that, we would have ordered one more complete entree and shared it. We pointed this out to the server who told us that the chef set the price. We also spoke with the manager, who could not have cared less about the issue. This put a huge damper on a good meal and special occasion. We are extremely disappointed in your staff. FYI, the total bill was $720 plus $125 tip.
My wife and I spend a week in San Francisco and the Farallon was our favorite restaurant. Ambience of the restaurant, quality of food and service was great!
The portions were too small
This was My second time here-
First time was three years ago.
Billed as a seafood establishment, there were only three seafood entrees. The salmon I ordered was a very small portion. My wife’s Mushroom risotto had three small mushrooms. Soup and bread were excellent. Service was excellent, but entrees were so disappointing (and expensive) that I cannot return again. It is too bad since this was supposed to be the highlight meal of our three day San Francisco trip.
From the greeting, the sommelier Luke, our server Tim, and the amazing food we could not have been more pampered. What an experience.
Meal was adequate but certainly not special. Presentation was upscale but food was average and overpriced. Because we are both gluten free,we called to see if they could accommodate us. They said yes but because of the limited menu there were only 2 entrees available to us. My husband ordered the tuna entree but the grade and portion size left a lot to be desired. My filet was far from top grade.
This is my wife's favorite San Francisco restaurant. Very good sea food, but the ambiance is what sets Farallon apart from restaurants that serve similar fare.
Every course was delicious and a sight for the eyes. The sommelier recommended a wonderful Cabernet which was worthy of two bottles for our party of six. And the desserts were well worth the splurge of calories. Fabulous service and fabulous food with their amazing decor. Always a very special treat to go to this restaurant.
Been coming here for 20 years and the quality stays incredibly high. Bibb salad was amazing; pasta course was perfectly cooked and presented; and the rare tuna entree was spectacular. My only complaint is cost. It’s on the absolute high end of reasonable - and, yet, I keep going back every time I’m in town because the setting, food and service are so good. Bring your expense account and enjoy!
It’s been a number of years since my last visit to Farallon and that one was great! It’s nice to know that little has changed. A thoroughly enjoyable evening with great food and service. I look forward to the next visit.
Great atmosphere, excellent sustainable food options with a phenomenal wine list. Service started off a bit slow but once they got started we were extremely pleased. From the first welcome and the Wine Steward, we were treated to a first class dining experience. Highly recommended. I encourage diners to ask about the ceiling, its very interesting to say the least.
Fantastic food all completed with superb service, I couldn’t recommend Farallon highly enough.
Very nice restaurant with great decor. The service was great. As it was midweek the place was a little quiet. However it was still very good!
As a girls night out, we shared basically one of everything! Each dish was not only beautiful, but also cooked to perfection. What a lovely and welcoming experience. We had some car trouble on the way and were told our table would be there whenever we got there safely. The staff are so kind and professional , we felt very special and taken care of. I can’t wait to go back again!
We love how the menu changes and we drive three hours to go to dinner here
The food was good; but, not great. The main courses were very good as were the deserts. The look and feel of the restaurant was good, bordering on very good. However, the noise level became quite loud as the room filled up. The price paid was out of line for what we received.
However, the star of the evening was Michael. He excelled in every moment. He adapted to our needs and was available when we had a need to be filled and was invisible the rest of the time. A ready smile, a good sense of humor and a very professional manner made him a "Rock Star" as a server.
This place is amazing! We felt like we’d entered a time warp, and were dining under the sea in this incredibly elegant and timeless setting. What a special, unique place - don’t miss the chance to experience Farallon!
We loved being able to make our reservations online with OpenTable and not having to call to talk to someone! Pleasant surprise to find much lower priced valet parking compared to hotel next door and parking garage down the street! The staff were all very pleasant and the food service attention was perfectly timed.
The beat meal I’ve had all year. Absolutely outstanding!
It was a great experience as usual. I had an appetizer and the kitchen brought out a stuffed blossom for my father. The food was spot on and the staff was friendly. I can’t wait to go back again.
I love to eat at new establishment and to try new foods. The food was amazing and the staff makes you feel at home. The wine selection, food and service where 5 stars! I highly recommend Farallon to others who want a special night.
Experience was absolutely perfect! I reserved for a bachelorette party and we were stunned by how wonderful and delicious the food was. I highly recommend this place.
Food: phenomenal! We ordered pretty much the entire menu to try various items. The beef was absolutely insane! This is a must get item! For dessert, get the coconut layer cake.... soooo good!
Service: our waiter Chase was very prompt and available at all times. Ordered a bottle of wine and was provided the utmost service. Not to mention the pastry chef, Eric, came by and provide us with complimentary desert items to celebrate the special occasion. Thank you to everyone for one of the best experience We’ve experienced.
Ambiance: nice low lighting, white table cloth, clean, and provided the special occasion scene we were looking for.
Valet parking is available on
Great food and ambience. Extremely friendly and effective staffs.
I have been coming here for trade show related special customer dinners since 2011. Never disappoints. We had a larger party this time, 7, with a vegetarian and a Texan who is a very picky eater (beef and more beef). There were super accommodating to our guests and of the course the decor/ambiance is as impressive as the food. Super service by Kirsten. Our whole party was really awed.
Even better than expected; ambiance, service, food and ability to get to the theatre on time!
We have enjoyed several meals here over the years, all great. The meal this week was spectacular, and thoughtfully presented.
