The food and service we’re outstanding. However the check in process before 5:30 is confusing and frustrating. We arrived at 5:15ish for our 5:30 reservation. The bar and entry were full of people. We were told that they would begin check in at 5:30. So all the people who arrived ahead of time had to get in line with no consideration for when they arrived or if they had reservations. I think they should check customers in as they arrive and then seat them at 5:30

We were sitting outside by the water at 5:30 and it was lovely. About an hour later a lot of clouds rolled in and the wind picked up so it got quite cold. My 90 year old grandmother was visiting from south Florida and is accustomed to warmer weather. I asked three different people if we could move to one of the tables by the heaters for our dessert/coffee. There were 5-8 open tables by the heaters under the patio cover. Each of the three people said let me ask the hostess and then didn't return with any answer. I had asked the waiter as well who said he would check and let us know, then he asked if we wanted to order dessert. I gave him our order and then he came back with the coffee and went to put it down on the table. I became frustrated and did not understand why he was not acknowledging anything about our multiple requests to move tables. As he went to put the coffee down on the table I told him that we don't want dessert/coffee if we can't move to another table, as it is too cold. I was snippy in my communication due to my frustration with the situation and feeling that multiple requests to move were ignored. I later apologized to the waiter for my frustrated tone of voice. We were finally allowed to move and it was much more comfortable. Overall the meal/experience wasn't worth the $200 that we spent and I left feeling disappointed and dissatisfied.

Maybe because it was a Friday and we were there at 3 PM, service was not great. I had to get up to obtain any service. Then, one server took us on, however, I don’t believe it was his section.

As always, the food was amaze.

Would have been nice to have more chicken options, gluten free, & dairy free options. Patio got way to hot from workers turning on all heat lamps & closing the patio curtain. Overall experience was nice. A bit over priced.

Beautiful place and delicious food! Husband and I were in town to celebrate our anniversary and specifically chose this restaurant as it’s one of the few places we can get amazing Peruvian food (the La Mar in NYC has closed down and we make a point to come to the San Francisco one whenever we can). Food is always great! Amazing lomo saltado, friendly staff and delicious desserts. The tres leches was moist and refreshing! We also had the sorbets which included a passion fruit flavor which reminded me of home! Hands down favorite place in San Fran!

La Mar is always a great experience and has been consistent with their menus since they opened in San Francisco.

I tried two new items this time: the scallops and tacu tacu which was a nice version of the traditional dish. I also tried the croquetas and did not stand along with their rest of the menu. The consistency of the filling was too mushy and on the salty side.

Hostess was professional and attentive. Our server took longer than expected despite the fact we informed him we were on a time frame due to a concert.

I use to love this place. I came back to celebrate my 1 year anniversary with my wife. Drinks were awful then I got Bourbon and ginger and I got rye and ginger. Food was ok lomo saltado more like French fries on soy Sauce but at least it has a nice view

I’ve been going to LaMar for a number of years, usually with out of town friends or for celebrations. I was there last Saturday and it was my last time. Service was especially poor, despite what seemed like zillions of people dashing around. We still had to ask for everything. Their usual basket of chips didn’t come until I asked, drinks took forever to order and then to arrive. We asked for blankets ( as had been offered ) since we were on the patio and it was cold. Had to ask more than once and it took nearly 20 minutes. When they cleared the plates from the first course, forks were tossed back onto the placemats rather than replaced with clean ones. Food delivery was haphazard and not up to the standards that their prices demand.
Food was not memorable, not even all that good. I’m very disappointed at La Mar and will look for another restaurant for memorable occasions that can “deliver the goods”.

The whole fish was wonderful!
The servicer would have been happy if he could have served the appetizer, the salad, the main course and desert all at on time just so he could turn over the table.
Too noisy, too light, not a date night restaurant.

Another lovely dinner at La Mar! We were with friends from out of town and were really pleased to be offered a table right on the water with heat lamps. The food was all great - ceviche selection, empanadas, quinoa salad with burrata and of course, the pisco sours. Really fun evening in Peru!
