The food was amazing - beautifully presented as well as excellently prepared. The noise level was high due to a group of screeching women. Some acoustic panels on the patio would help. The value was comparable to other exceptionally good restaurants in SF.

My family and I usually go to Fogo's, and were surprised by far how great the service is here. We're coming to Pampas next time instead! Prompt and attentive service by our waitress, and we really felt taken care of! The skirt steak and chicken hearts were my favorite. Everything was amazing from the staff, food and overall experience. Thank you! Will definitely be recommending this place to all my international customers!

The restaurant is beautiful and the ambiance is nice. The service here is also pretty good.

If you do decide to go here, I would recommend the empanadas only. I was not impressed by much of anything else here because the flavors of the ceviche were not special. The paella was way too salty to consume. The loma saltado also was not very good.

Overall, if you’re going here to sit and have drinks and eat empanadas and pass some time then this wouldn’t be too bad of a place to go. If you want to have a nice filling meal with yummy food, there are plenty of other Peruvian restaurants in the city that would be much better suited for that need.

Recommended by a friend and it was a true hit! Food was fabulous, our waiter, Victor, was excellent. We love the plantains that came instead of Bread and had a fabulous Wasabi aioli sauce. The Tuna Cebiche was like butter and our Salmon La Mar was excellent! (See picture!) We can’t wait to come back!

Es un lugar dentro de todo agradable, nuestra mesa no era la más cómoda para cinco comensales. La comida muy elaborada y bien preparada, pero puede ser algo picante para los paladares no tan acostumbrados. Dentro de todo una buena experiencia y muy recomendable, aunque algo costoso.

Wonderful, fresh food in tasty, peruvian combinations. Distracted and low-performing service, asking for orders long after we ordered, then serving the wrong dish.

I went to La Mar alone and had a wonderful dining experience from the reception to the meal itself. I was seated early and the wait staff was extremely helpful and accomodating. The cebiche clasico was very good and was paired well with a wine and the steak was very good as well and was paired well with another wine. It was a bit noisey, but the food helped me to forget about that. The desert was very good and paired with a nice dessert wine. An overall great dining experience.

The place, the service, the food. Everything was really good and authentic. The causa limeña was so tasty! As it was the tuna ceviche and the salmon tiradito. Very well prepared and full of flavor. The only minus, we find the restaurant to be expensive, but still perfect for a special occasion!

First time at Here. Ceviche is phenomenal. I had the 4 Estacion sampler which was enough food for two really. The wine list is excellent. Very good, attentive service. We were seated on time on a very nice corner table. Great place for foodies. Expensive but totally worth the price.

The quality of the food here needs to be experienced as it is difficult for a non-professional reviewer to describe. The menu is extensive, creative and while there is something of a seafood emphasis, there are options for those who prefer terrestrial or vegetarian options. The restaurant itself is a big, comfortable waterfront space where a long lunch or relaxed dinner is quite easy to experience. The service staff is great, as must be the kitchen staff considering how delicious everything is. Highly recommended.

Great restaurant with creative Peruvian fare. My wife and I spent the evening in The City on a date and wanted something different for dinner. La Mar was perfect. Convenient at the Embarcadero and close to a fun Cable Car ride from the Top of the Mark for cocktails prior to dinner. Service was exceptional, the appetizers were extremely fast to our table. The staff was knowledgeable and fun. Will definitely go again.

Our first time here, just visiting SFO from out of town. The location, right on the waterfront near the Ferry Building is great - excellent ambiance. The service is what makes this restaurant special to us. The wait-staff was so helpful in explaining the uniqueness of the menu, how the flavors worked together, and spent time with us trying to understand what we did and did not like in order to recommend the best options for us to great a true taste of the menu. Worth the trip there, and will be on the short list for future trips to the Bay Area.
