The best parts were the appetizers and cocktails. Entrées were mediocre. Otherwise, the waiters could have been more attentive since there's an hour and half table limit. It was getting very cold and would have liked our check to come in a more timely manner. So we took the initiative to go to the front to pay.

This restaurant has lost its soul when you glance at the other table and someone is eating nigiri with chopsticks. This is supposed to be a Peruvian restaurant and Cebicheria. Yet there are only a handful of cebiche, the Classic, the Nikkei (disappointed the ingredients to be straight Japanese instead of the Peruvian version) the Vegan ( defies the meaning of cerbeche), and the Mixto which we end up ordering. This turned up to be disappointing. The star of this dish was supposed to be the fresh seafood but the amount of red onions (garnish) on top overpowers the flavor. The presentation was also unappealing. The morsel of fish looks like leftovers cut instead of nicely cut.

We also ordered Grilled Octupos. Yet another disappointing dish. Octopus by itself is bland and this dish was paired with sweet potatoes+ favs beans purée. The pairing is off, it lacks seasoning to open up the flavors.

The third dish we ordered was Arroz Norteno, a rice dish with shrimp and top with chalacas. I tried to find the chalacas but there none or maybe they were too small. I tried to really love this dish but it had no wow factor. The shrimp was seasoned well but the rice was so so. For $46, I was expecting more.

Our server was missing the majority of our dinning experience. We have to pour our chilled wine by ourselves. He was too busy catering to a group of 6 next to us. He only appeared when we have to pay. There were actually a lot of staff on hand to clean the table and set it up but personal service was lacking. He was also less knowledgeable of what wine is available.

We came on Monday night, June 14, and we were expecting it to be slow. However the restaurant was pack like pre-pandemic. So I asked our server if La Mar was preparing to open tomorrow June 15 as mandated by the Governor. And he replied, we are already open. And he was right. When we left the indoor dining room was also packed. There were no social distancing even on the patio where we sat.

I had asked for outdoor seating. They said I had not when I arrived. . When I look at the survey it says my table was outside.

THIS PLACE IS FANTASTIC! I was so impressed on my first visit one week ago, I came back the following week with friends. Kelsey, the manager was AMAZING! Angelo and Abie our servers were top-notch. The view from the patio was outstanding. Every bite of food was an epicurean experience. This is a place you must go in San Francisco. I'll be back again with more friends and colleagues. Kelsey, look out you've got a regular customer for life.

Service was attentive and the food was even better than we remembered! Sitting on the back deck is simply charming. One complaint- there were 2 parties that had dogs with them. The big dog was just too big and furry to be in a restaurant and the little one started barking. I love dogs just as much as anyone but they should stay home when their people go to dinner. Dogs, other than Guide Dogs, should not be allowed.

We had a beautiful dinner with a beautiful view at La Mar. The food was delicious, portions were generous, and the service was incredibly efficient. My only reservation is that the patio are were we sat was very loud so it was difficult for some members of our party to hear.

We reserved a table outside because one of our party was not fully vaccinated. When we got there they made us wait inside for 15 minutes, then claimed that we had not specified an outdoor seat. They then sat us at a table (inside) that was way too large for our small group and, which made it very hard to hear what anyone was saying in the incredibly noisy interior. The food was not worth the price either. This s is a disorganized, unsafe tourist trap that is not worth the wait or the prices.

Food was fine. Server was good but hostess said something I have never been told. She informed me that we had a two hour table limit like there was a timer running on our dining experience. Might be the most off-putting policy I have ever encountered. We are dining out to help local restaurants. That wasn’t much of a thank you. Also way, way, too loud music that loud is unnecessary.

The appetizer platter (ceviche , ahi tuna, etc) + octopus + lomo saltado +crab pasta are amazing! If you go there with some friends order their deserts! I ordered three of their desserts and everything was good!
Definitely one of my fave resto in San Francisco

The food was phenomenal. We can’t recommend the empanadas enough, the sampler is worth it but the chicken empanadas steal the show. The drinks are delicious and pair well with dinner. This is a fun date spot or if you want to eat somewhere delicious while visiting the city.

Great food. Great wait staff. Our waiter Angelo was very friendly and helpful in picking dishes. The manager Kelsey was very nice and friendly and gave us one the best pieces of chocolate cake I've ever had. I'm going back in a couple of days and bringing two friends. Anyone who likes really good food and great surroundings should definitely give this restaurant a try.

I know it is not their fault directly, but we started having dinner at 10 am and at 11 pm they tell you they have to close the kitchen and that you cannot even order drinks (even if they have a whole cocktail bar area downstairs). It is very disappointing to travel from Miami to celebrate a bachelorette with some friends and to not even have time to chit chat with drinks after dinner.

Having said so, food is delicious at this place, and the service was outstanding.

Another great meal. The magic for me is the ceviche flavors. Not just the protein but the marinade. However the others dishes are all worth having. The prickly pear margarita is worth the indulgence though it is sweet more than sour. The rear outdoor patio is a great spot with heaters during these famously cool SF evenings!
