Wonderful outdoor meal and drinks by the water for our anniversary. We were a bit time pressed and the food came immediately! And a gratis piece of yum cake at the end to celebrate. Great ceviche. Crab was fresh and beautify in presentation. Highly recommend

Didn't even wish me a happy birthday even though it was on the reservation, when they clearly do elaborate displays for others. Brought several complimentary dishes to the table next to us. Didn't seem to care. Food was fine.

We had reservations for Mother’s Day we had a fixed menu everything on it was exceptional. The food is just as delicious as it is beautifully plated. Service was excellent and we had a table on the waterfront. It made for a perfect evening, we will definitely dine there again.

Great experience at La Mar this past weekend. We made reservations for their outdoor patio which featured a beautiful view of the pier. Service was friendly. Food overall was delicious and was plated and presented beautifully. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

One of the best if not the best Peruvian cuisine in San Francisco. Highly recommend this place for any occasion: dinner, dates, happy hour, etc.

Delicious food in a laid-back atmosphere. I was coincidentally there during a pre-fixe menu, so I would like to return to try their regular menu.

The location is amazing, the service is good, and the food is also quite good.

My only criticism (and it is a big one) is that I was not contacted to be made aware of a special Mother’s Day menu until a couple of days before, where I learned of the $95/pp prefix price tag before any drinks. I made my reservation weeks before and I was not aware of a special menu, although maybe I should have assumed given the day. Maybe there was a menu posted on their website. I’m not sure that I checked before making the reservation.

To me, this was inconsiderate by the restaurant staff - leaving me with no other options the Thursday before Mother’s Day.

This was an expensive meal for me and my family and a heads up would have been nice so we could have made a decision accordingly.

Otherwise, the experience was good and my wife and mother in law enjoyed it.

The hostess was unpleasant/ rude. We were so happy to go out to celebrate my friend's birthday and were very annoyed by her unwelcome attitude. it took us a while to get back to the happy mode.
our waitress was very good. she made great recommendations.
The cocktail was great.
The food was good, not outstanding, though. We ordered the octopus appetizer, which was good. I had a Shrimp rice dish that was very good. my friend order some beef dish and it came with potato fries, which was strange because I thought the Peruvian style would use yuca instead of potatoes.
I am not sure if I'd go back though.

It's very rare that I classify a meal as going to "Flavor Town" but this was one of those times! Our grilled halibut, coordinated sauces and side were absolutely incredible!! Thank you for an AMAZING meal!! 👏

Times have changed, and perhaps my expectations have too, but my dinner at La Mar this past week was disappointing. In pre CV times, La Mar was always a favorite. This past Thursday, May 6, for a first social outing in well over a year among girlfriends who haven't seen one another and needed a night out and catchup, we had thought La Mar's patio would be a great option for outdoor dining. It was my belief was that regulations/rules in this post-pandemic surge environment required that capacity within any physical space in a restaurant be limited to 50% of capacity, instead, we arrived and saw that La Mar's policy was that 50% capacity of the entire restaurant's capacity could be housed entirely on their outdoor patio. It was packed. Meanwhile, inside was empty. And it appeared that as much as half of the patio was taken up by some sort of unmasked happy hour of 40-50 very energetic friends/coworkers who were mingling, walking around, laughing and cheering at top volume. It felt uncomfortable and unsafe - we felt horribly for their servers and staff. I would have hated to have been seated on the other side of the rope from those people. They should have had a private room away from the rest of us. We sat on the opposite side of the patio, and still had a difficult time talking amongst ourselves due to the distraction activity and noise from the large group and everyone else in the patio who had to holler amongst themselves to be heard. It was a lesson-learned. Future reservations for any restaurant will be followed up with a call to find out what their policy is. While we are all fully vaccinated and in good health, the experience was so unpleasant as to lead to a group discussion about not returning to La Mar for any dinners any time soon. While it could have just been poor planning, it put many diners in a position to feel at risk. They may want to re-think their policy. The food and drink is wonderful - I hope to return one day, but perhaps not for a long while.

Great food, great views, great service... what more could you want? If you love seafood, this is your new favorite place. We enjoyed sharing a number of tapas dishes, which is always a fun way to eat. Conveniently located on the Embarcadero right near the Ferry Building. Highly recommended!

I know these are challenging times for us all, and I never give a bad review, but we were so disappointed that I am glad to have the chance to give you feedback. You have been a go to place for us for years, but I think we are going to call it quits.
Here goes...
It was so loud that our table of 5 couldn't even talk to each other. We were with family that we hadn't seen for over a year and couldn't even hear each other. We gave up.
The lighting was terrible, like a bad cafeteria.
The food is the reason to go there, it was not as great this time.
The waiter was lackluster for sure. Seemed a little put out.
Again, it may be unfair to review any rest. during these times, but I think you should know.
We were kind of embarrassed because it was our idea to take our out of town guests there and it was not a good experience.

Calamari appetizer was very disappointing. Had not even been cleaned of black ink which made the dish gritty and unappetizing. Heavy on sauces to the point we couldn't taste the flavor of the fish or meat. Not worth those prices at all.

Food and drinks here make for a great experience. Very clean environment. We sat outside and it was warm and comfortable. Parking can be a challenge, as it can be for all of the piers. We arrived after a game had finished and right around 7:30 PM and it was easy to find nearby parking. Still, I would arrive a little early. There is a pier just around the corner to walk down after the meal and I would recommend for a date or fun outing with a group. Hope you enjoy!

Poor quality food overall. Very good service however. Pricing is silly. I understand tourist pricing-but $46 for a bowl of rice and 4 prawns?
Will not be returning or referring.
