We arrived early and directed to the bar as the restaurant hadn't opened yet. Pisco Sour later (bar was very loud and packed), we were finally directed to our table on the patio. There are heaters and our waiter offered me a blanket as well. We ordered small bites and shared. Everything was great and our waiter fuided us through the menu. We had a pitcher of prickly margaritas and even had dessert! They compd one of them because it was our anniversary. My husband's first visit. My third. We'll definitely return. Special occasion place for us.

Very disappointing. After being a fan for many years, eating here on a holiday was a mistake. Only a few items to choose from, and none of the favorites. Waitstaff were temp staff and had no idea what they were talking about. Clearly the objective was volume- waiter said they did over 500 covers. Felt like a banquet- and certainly was not worth the $. Feel taken advantage of. Won’t go back- off our regular list.

We went for a Valentine's Day date. Very good overall except for the service:

1. I had a reservation, but instead of offering the best available table I was asked to pick one and the host had to go to reception each time to verify whether it's available or not. After I asked him the second time he was quite annoyed like it was my problem that he didn't not know which table was available.
2. Server only brought wine pairing menu after I made an order from the main drinks menu. If I knew there was a wine pairing menu I wouldn't have bothered to start with a cocktail.
2. Server was asked to box the leftovers but apparently forgot about that: he brought check and never shown up with the food.

I enjoyed the food and location, however the restaurant was much bigger and louder than I expected with no views based on our seating indoors. For my occasion, meeting up with an old friend to catch up, it wasn't ideal. Yet, if I were nearby and the outdoor seating were available on a sunny day.. it would be a great place to stop in for a bite/drink.

The food was so amazing! We chose to get the four course meal so we could try all that was possible. This was 69 dollars per person and it was 110 percent worth it. Every dish was a brand new taste and the view was scenic and beautiful! We sat in the outdoor seating area which has heaters since it wasn't very warm late at night and they have blankets for people who do get cold. So worth the money and I would highly recommend.

They suggested the most expensive items on the menu when explaining menu.

Server disappeared for 15-20 min’s before ordering, but he was friendly. Appreciated another server being willing to take our order.

If you’re prepared to pay $60/person for lunch & a beautiful view (sitting in enclosed patio) then you’ll love it. Three dishes for two to share for lunch is plenty.

While initially overwhelmed at the options of the menu, we got some wonderful clarification by our waiter & were blown away by the superior quality and creativity of all the dishes. Our first visit but by no means our last!!! And our waiter brought us a dessert to celebrate my mother being in town. Not at all necessary, but an endearing gesture and it was very tasty! Gracias por la cena. Todo estuvo delicioso 😀

This restaurant used to be a lot better. I don't know if this visit was an aberration. Nice location, good service. But the menu seemed more limited than in the past: less authentic Peruvian cuisine (and I have been there three times), and even the classic Lima ceviches were strangely bland in flavor. Both the crab and the shrimp were a little past their prime and getting a bit fishy. And the wine list was less interesting and more overpriced than before (and no half bottles). Too bad.

We got a table on the corner of the restaurant so I asked the host if we could seat in the bar around the kitchen, so we did, we sat down and for about 20 min nobody came to our table, another couple sat down right next to us and they got water and plantains w a sauce right away, nothing still for us, we had to ask a manager walking by us if somebody was gonna help us, after that the service was good but I was not impress by the food

Along with the noise levels, la Mar’s prices are headed beyond reach of those who aren’t on expense accounts or spending venture dollars. We were here last year and have seen the prices jump since then. That said, the food is still outstanding and the pisco sours extremely satisfying. Pretty much anything on the menu is going to make you happy (except the $75 octopus!), so not going to go into lots of dish descriptions. My advice, however, is to bring ear plugs. The noise level is not “energetic,” it’s deafening. And as the room fills and the crowd swells, all are trying to out shout each other to be heard. So the fun of la Mar is marred because that large group you came with won’t be able to hear anything anyone says. Given the prices and the noise, small wonder the outer bar area is swamped for happy hour. It’s a very limited menu, but pisco sours are $7 instead of $13 inside and ceviche is $9 at happy hour vs more than twice that in the restaurant. So go early and stake out a spot for great food at a reasonable price where you can talk to your table mates at la Mar’s happy hour.

My friends and I were super excited to try restaurant week at La Mar!! Oh man... we have been to La Mar In Peru, SF LA Mar was a disappointment. A very important aspect of any dining experience is customer service. The service was super slow and the food came out barely warm. I don’t think I would come back to this location

Met my friend here for lunch. She is the Queen of Foodies and chose this place during SF's Restaurant Week. Thus we had the fixed price lunch for $25. The food was truly excellent and the service impeccable but the portions were small and the place was so noisy it was hard to hear each other talk. Food and service alone rated a 5 but but the $$$ and noise level brought it down a bit. There are better values for that type of money. I was still hungry after my meal. A really nice touch though, were the combination fried potato and plantain chips with their house dip that was given as a free appetizer. I usually do not like plantains but these were delicious!

My friend and I got there in time for happy hour and wound up eating at the bar. Delicious cocktails and food, and our bartender/server was the best! Super nice and on top of everything. Even though we were in the busy bar, it wasn't noisy. We had the classic cebiche, quinoa salad and empanada taster--all were great.

The food is good and the menu is varied and interesting. Expensive but not crazy expensive like so many SF restaurants. We had a drink at the bar though, great negroni, but when we asked for some nuts or chips to accompany it we were told they were a restaurant and needed to sell food, even with drinks. Honestly, it's an attitude we find all over SF and we think it's a shame bars don't try to create a warmer, more generous atmosphere. After all, it would only cost them peanuts.
