Lunch and I requested quick service due to time allowance.
Ordered catch of the day ceviche which was Halibut.
Did not disappoint. The service was lightning quick and the dish was amazing. Still the best ceviche place in Nor Cal⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have always liked this place. However, this past Sunday evening the noise level was far above "energetic." It was beyond any place I have ever experienced. At our table we had to yell at each other to be heard.

having been to their restaurant in Peru we expected an excellent meal.
not only were they out of a number of items even at a 5:30 seating but the food preparation and quality were poor. I had a specialty dish with shrimp,fish and squid --everything was over cooked, almost not edible! It was supposed to be over fresh veggies--not even close.
very disappointing

The service, ambiance, and presentation were exceptional. This restaurant hits the mark on creating dishes that not only taste great but look beautiful as well. Ceviche was presented in a much more colorful manner than I’ve been accustomed to at other seafood restaurants that feature ceviches on the menu. This truly is a chevicheria and seafood restaurant. If you want an excellent view of the San Francisco Bay and the Bay Bridge, request you be seated outdoors. Make sure you take a stroll after dinner to the nearby pedestrian pier that allows you to walk out from the Embarcadero and take in phenomenal views of down San Francisco.

The crab in the crab sandwhich was fresh, however the bread was like a soft hot dog bun - sour dough would have been better. Empanadas were the bomb.

La Mar is a very big restaurant, not a cozy place for a romantic dinner or whatsoever. Do not get fooled, it is not a place where you will eat food prepared exclusively by the chef. It is a big, busy restaurant.
The service is good, and fast; professionally kind (not warm or welcoming). The place is loud that it was sometimes difficult to understand the server.
The food is incredible. It is very tasty and with a lot of options to go through the modern Peruvian cuisine. We got a "tasting menu", which did not disappoint us at all. Unfortunately the wine pairing was less than satisfactory. The chosen wines were clearly easy-drinking, easy-to-like, simple wines. Plus, the sommelier did not show any interest but sparingly pouring the wine in the glasses....
The dessert was fabulous, too, along with the food.
In conclusion, delicious food with a standard cool service in a loud and expensive place.

Chef Gaston Acurio,has done a wonderful job with this Peruvian restaurant,I loved the food,everything was on point,only thing that I found very wrong,was that they only had two single room bathrooms,there where lines of people waiting, but I will definitely come back when I'm in san Francisco.

La Mar has always been a solid place to bring friends and/or colleagues. We were lucky this night because of the mild October weather, so we were able to sit outside and enjoy views of the Bay. The food was outstanding as well!

The restaurant has a menu with food options that you are unlikely to find in other restaurants, with excellently prepared and plated food. If you enjoy trying great food with new flavors, this is an elegant option for a memorable business meal or a celebration with friends and family. If the weather is good, I suggest trying to sit outdoors in the back.

Im a regular at La Mar and happy to see it continues to do since they open. Regrettably, the table next to our was too loud and hard for my boyfriend and I to carry a conversation.

The Ceviche Nikkei and Parrilla de Mariscos were great. The Lomo Saltado which I order often was too salty and heavy on the sauce.

Service was good.

It was great. We were very late due to traffic (1-hour late!), but they were still able to accommodate us at the ceviche bar area, which was just fine. The servers were very enthusiastic, so it made the ambiance really enjoyable.

I had been here 5 years ago and loved the food. I was disappointed this time. The food was cold and salty. The lomo saltado was especially salty. It's a fun place with good drinks but the food was not worth the price.

Restaurant was way too loud and harried. We all felt rushed; plates were whisked away almost before we were finished. Food was decent but costly. Would not go again.

The sea food here is to die for! The lomo saltado has more of an asian taste than the classic peruvian lomo saltado I was hoping for. The place is REALLY loud but if you are looking for a quiet, more intimate space, they do have two tables off to the side that are available for special occasions. The quiet was nice in our corner but I wish it wasn't next to where folks walked back to their water taxis. The service was fast and staff were very open to explaining/educating you on what is in each dish. Overall the experience was good and we may be back for drinks and cebiche!
