    Pros: This without a doubt is my favorite Peruvian restaurant. The consistency of the food is always the same, if not better. I come here regularly on a monthly basis and never get tired of the food. As for the cocktails, they are always amazing. My favorite drink being “La Marita” and their traditional “Pisco Sour”. Food service by the kitchen staff is always pushed out very quickly and you can tell they have a great system even when they are busy. Sitting outdoors, enjoying the decent view facing out to the east bay, and enjoying the amazing food/drinks is always a great experience for my family and myself. Cons: Service is always hit or miss from my personal experience. As mentioned I come to this restaurant a couple times figuring I’d get familiar with the staff, but that’s never the case. Sometimes we have a server that is continuously checking in on us, making suggestions and joking around. Other times we have a server that comes around once every 30 minutes, doesn’t present suggestions on the food and is just too forward with getting the job done. Considering the medium to high price point of the food, which is always amazing, the service isn’t always as amazing to make everything align perfectly.

    Seating arrangement was such that it was a low table in the bar. Not pretty or special at all. Nice waiter and great service. Ooo la la those prices are really high. I feel like I had 2 appetizers and a drink for $80. That's a killjoy for sure. Open your wallet and give it a shake.

    problems: we couldn't sit out side because a single group took all the tables. We thought that was terribly unfair and we should have been notified. Service was simply awful.. Table next to us was served before us despite. arriving later than us' Most of the dishes on menu were too spicy. Lightly spicy would have been OK resulting in very few options! Extremely noisy because there were too many large groups inside. We have been to La Mar quite often and probably would not choose it again.

    My favorite restaurant in San Francisco, and hands-down the best Latin cooking I have ever found. The variety and originality of the food is stunning, the place is gorgeous, and the waiters and buspeople are wonderful. I take all of my out of town visitors to La Mar, and they are all blown away. Two of us split the Halibut last night, it was sublime - and I had enough left over for a dinner tonight. And the locdation, right on SF Bay, next door to the Ferry Building, is magnificent.

    Service was great as always. We were looking forward to splitting a tomahawk steak for my girlfriend’s birthday, like we had done back in October for my birthday. In October it was $120 which we thought was exorbitant, but last night it had shot up to $200, an $80 increase! Needless to say we had some seafood for dinner and will go elsewhere for steaks. I really liked that they decanted our wine for us (I brought my own bottle), most people don’t bring wine they have made, so I was sure it wasnt on their list. In addition they brought a cake with a candle for my girlfriend’s birthday. As I said, the service was great, it is just getting too expensive for us, even for a special occasion.

    I was here on a second date, and I had originally wanted a patio seat but could only reserve a normal table. I still asked for patio seating on the reservation notes and the restaurant could accommodate that. Date went really well :) the servers were great. They did take about 10 to 15 min to sit us from initial expected reservation time but it ended it being okay

    Food was great, but service has become very automated. Manager down to waiter only interested on what you want and then get you out. That is the feeling anyway. A fork from one of our guests dropped to the floor, and she placed it at end of table. A red haired lady came and took it without acknowledging us at all. We had to call someone else for a fork. They were so busy, so it took a while.

    The restaurant is beautiful and vast. The outdoor deck offers views of the bay and is warmed by heat lamps. The ceviches (we tried three) were all delicious and managed to be tangy without being sour. The octopus is outstanding! My party loved the drinks and the deserts.

    The root chips wuth the green sauce that they give you is amazing. Service was good. Grilled octopus was rubbery unfortunately. The grilled halibut and scallops though were very good. Outdoor dining are is nice bit the acoustics aren't very good due to the hard ceiling and floor, it was difficult at times hearing some people in our table of six.

    La Mar continues to deliver consistent menu options, quality Peruvian cuisine and great customer service. It’s my to-go restaurants for Peruvian food craving and any time I want to have cocktail hour. The nigiris are off the hook! This is much appreciated and the closest to being in Lima. Thank you to Gaston Acurio and his amazing team.

    We made reservations for 8:45pm for 6 people and arrived at 8:48pm. We did not get seated until about 9:30pm even though we had reservations. They are extremely strict about their 15min grace period. They will charge you $25 per person if you show up late or cancel last minute. But it seemed like they didn’t even have a table or space available for the time I made the reservation. We waited and waited for the people who just paid and then after the table would be cleaned to be seated. What was worse is we saw groups of 5 and groups of 6 people walking in to be seated before us. That was the frustrating part along with the fairly small portions for the price you pay.

    Greeted by the friendly staff, my partner and I enjoyed a great lunch at La Mar! Great service, decently sized portions, and the plating was on point! Plus, my partner appreciated the all-gender restrooms - not many public spaces have them &amp; this was a tremendous plus to show how anyone is welcomed in here. We will be back again.

    Great food! I was seated around 8:15pm, had a reservation for 7:45pm and checked in around 7:30pm. The restaurant was busy, so I understand. Had a couple of drinks at the bar while I waited, good strategy to spend a few extra $$$ since one has to wait to get seated 😂

    We were seated at a pretty awful table in the bar- next to a wall of pipes and cleaning implements. The noise was deafening since there was a group meeting there. The hostess did try to find us another table, but they were booked. We left and ate at the Waterfront restaurant instead. No way that table should have been booked.
