We love Fog Harbor. Nice outdoor dining with views of Pier 39 action. Great seafood. We love the oysters and of course, the clam chowder. You can't go wrong.

One of my and husband’s favorite spots when we come to San Francisco, we usually get the clam chowder and surf and turf but tried something new. We ordered the new item the “Tomahawk” for the first time for $95 and feeds two with big appetites, and the pumpkin bread pudding is amazing. Thank me later :-)

It was birthday, I was visiting from out of town and I didn’t arrive in time for my reservation due to not knowing how to get there. I felt they could’ve tried a little harder to accommodate my seating arrangements for sitting inside, I had to sit outside. It was a cold and windy, it would’ve been so much nicer if I could’ve sat inside. Overall, the food and service was nice!

Honestly I don't know why the restaurant has such high reviews because it's practically an expensive tourist trap. Is it bad? By no means. But nothing is good enough to warrant visiting for culinary delight. The cioppino is too salty and the self-proclaimed "best" clam chowder is no better than most other places. Even the service is a little slow when we sat there for a long time before I had to proactively seek out a waiter. The only "saving" point for the restaurant is that it's right on Pier 39 but due to COVID 19, the location of the outdoor seating has absolutely no view (if you happen to use the restroom you'll see that the restaurant next door lucked out because the outdoor seating faces the bay view). In other words, nothing special in this restaurant to warrant the price except potentially the location on the Pier 39.

There was a question regarding our reservation made on Open Table, but the hostess quickly found us a table. I appreciated the plastic screens between tables. Service was fast, polite, and easy to hail for requests. My wife and I shared an order of crab cakes, which were tasty and crisp, but small. My wife’s cioppino was good but not exceptional. I had a risotto with scallops and crab. The scallops were perfectly cooked. The risotto was floating in butter unfortunately. Sourdough rolls were enjoyable. A draft lager was very good. All in all, an expensive lunch in a pleasant environment with excellent service. Probably would not repeat.

Had made this reservation not expecting too much and as a quick lunch stop on our way from Napa to Los Angeles. It said good sea food and award winning clam chowder, but so do other places and they end up being horrible. But NOT Fog Harbor!! It was an absolutely delicious meal! Everything on their menu looks fantastic!! I wanted to try everything. The service was spectacular (we were expecting low key fisherman’s wharf service and this was 5 star service). Great value for cost, and beautiful views. We ended up spending two hours on this “stop” as a result. Go early! Gets super crowded after 1PM, especially on a weekend. We will surely be back here!

We went and ate outdoors at about 5:30 pm (due to COVID) on Labor Day weekend. There was adequate social distancing between the tables and we felt very safe having a table near the water outdoors. The oysters were great and I had the mussel fries which were also really good. They have a more limited menu right now due to the circumstances, but there is enough variety for everyone and our waiter was very attentive and clearly wanted to please us and have us feel safe. I will return.

I’ve eaten here several times. Food hit and miss. Was not impressed on my most recent visit. Clam chowder with dry textured clams. Definitely not fresh. Calamari too salty. They also no longer feature my favorite dish, Crab Louis salad. Hope it comes back when crab is in season again. Service slow on most recent visit. Has to wait 20-30 minutes after sitting before I could order. Had to flag waiter to do so.
