We have been looking forward to dining at Le Mar for a couple years and were let down by the event. The space was very loud and we couldn't hear our waiter and the food was just okay. My husband and I both ordered fish for our main and neither of us enjoyed it enough to finish the dishes.

There were so many options to choose from and very little guidance. When we asked the waiter how to navigate the menu he ended up taking us through the entire menu vs. recommending items for the courses.

The food was excellent and the service was very good. It’s a very beautiful venue but I would’ve hoped for a better table given that we made the reservation for party of five over a week in advance. Instead we were seated at the shared community table with hard wooden seats that were very uncomfortable.

Noise level was deafening, but the food was absolutely fantastic. Incredible flavor assortment for ceviche. I had no idea of the flexibility of quinoa to add texture and flavor to main course meals as well as dessert! Start your meal with Pisco sour!

Very expensive and menu not clear. I doubled order and still not enough for 4 people, even though waiter said the "shared" plates were enough. We are not big eaters, but amounts were skimpy. Cocktails were also very small. Lovely setting, nice walk to ferry.

サンフランシスコ・フェリービルディングのすぐそば。
セビーチェや創作寿司があるので、魚介類や海鮮料理が好きな日本人には凄く好まれる事でしょう。
ビジネスの接待は勿論のこと、デートや遠方から来た友人との食事会など、多目的に使えるレストランです。
また、ウォーターフロントのパティオの席が取れれば最高のディナーになる事間違いなしです。

The location was great - right on the water - and the decor inside was clean but beautiful. The menu looked amazing and we wanted to try everything, so we got the Experiencia Cebicheria which was a little of everything. The cebiche was amazing, and it was a very filling experience for only $69. We couldn't even finish dessert and had it boxed up for us to take home. Though we did eat the sorbet in the restaurant, the alfajores were so good the next day. There was a problem with the credit card machine at the end so we had to wait a while for the check, but they brought out free drinks for our wait. It was an overall great experience and I wish we lived in SF so we could go back!

This place isn't cheap but you get what you pay for. I went here with my husband for our 10 year anniversary. The food was excellent. The service is awesome. Friendly & professional. The restaurant is very nice. Not over the top but very modern & classy. Very nice outdoor seating. I will be coming back. I was not disappointed. It was, overall, a lovely experience.

Food was very good. They forgot one dish that we ordered and the waiter began to disagree with me saying that he had brought it. He backed down when four of us assured him he hadn't.

Also I had stated in the reservation that we were celebrating a friend's birthday and this was not acknowledged in any way. I would have expected at the very least a candle in the desserts we ordered and paid for.

I was incredibly disappointed in the choice and volume of the music. At some point in our meal, the volume was turned up to a level that would rival any night club, and it was 8:30 PM. It was so loud, that not only were my friend and I screaming at each other, the salsa music made it impossible to actually think. Inside it was perfectly fine. After we complained to the waiter, the music was turned off, but only after the song completely finished, volume still as loud.

There was no reason to turn the music completely off. As we left, the turned the music back on at full volume. It was 9:30. I will not return and I have eaten here multiple times.

Incredible food and experience. Highly recommend. The cocktails were amazing. The pasco sour seemed to be the most popular drink. The service was excellent. We had never been to a Peruvian restaurant so the menu options were a bit confusing for us but the server was really helpful explaining things. He even gave us a recommendation which we went with and it was delicious.

The Jalea needs something to go with it - it's not good as a pile of fried seafood. I was hoping the yucca and avocado would offset the heaviness, but it just didn't do it. It's just a fried calamari appetizer, basically. Doesn't hold a candle to the Salmon la mar, which is adjacent on the menu, so that was disappointing.

Music was * throughout the restaurant. We were first seated at a large table and requested a smaller 4 top table. Our waiters were brusk and hurried. When we gave 2 credit cards to split the bill, they charged 100% to each card! Honest! The manager apologized and corrected things and offered sparkling wine to us. Terrible experience.

We had 2 different ceviches (Classico and Mixto) and the ahi tuna salad-- all a knock- out. Past visits included more of the menu, but this time, the food and price point was just right. If you arent careful in ordering , it can get $$

The place is large and can get quite crowded--sometimes service is slower than expected, but generally if you arent in a big rush, just enjoy!

I keep returning-great place to go with gals or the special one!
