We have dined here in the past and really enjoyed it, however this time was total opposite experience! Our reservation was at 7:00 pm, we were promptly seated at 7:01 , our server did not great our table until 7:22, he had an attitude from the start , most unpleasant experience!!! We received our drinks @7:46!!!! We didn’t receive our food until 8:43!!! Service was horrible and food was even worse, nobody finished there dishes and we were all starving, we ended up back at our hotel and ordered room service that blew away what we were served at dinner. We will never dine here again !!! Don’t waste your time or money. To many great restaurants in the area to waste your time here!!!

We were very disappointed with our dining experience here. We were seated at a table where we could not sit across from each other, it forced us to look directly at the tables across from us eating and chatting. The waiter seemed like he did not want to be bothered and the food was not worth the time. $200.00 for flavorless crab dip and veggies that we could have been served at Applebees.

Even though we were there for a special occasion (birthday celebration) and indicated this during the reservation, the staff claimed they were unaware of this. Moreover, despite being told about this during checkin, they did nothing. Despite the good food and great view I no longer recommend this restaurant due to poor service

I would not recommend this place.Service was horrible. Food was ok ,could get better food at a better price in many other locations.Server was the worst for a high end or classy place.

Will never go there or tell any one to go there!

We went here on New Year’s Eve. 4 friends each booked a table for 10 so we pretty much took up the back dining room. The staff were amazing and attentive and tolerant of our large loud party. The food was great and all meals arrived at the same time and all were hot and tasty. The staff provided us with party hats at midnight to ring in the new year. Great experience.

New Years Eve on vacation. We felt very rushed, never asked if we wanted any side dishes. Probably our least favorite meal while in San Francisco. Yes, it’s a chain, but doesn’t have to feel that way, and it does.

Very cold welcome by the woman at the entry she said
No hello
No smile and
Seems nervous
Very bad and very unhappy about her
We pay more than 200 $ for a bad welcome
The most important is the first appreciation

But I need to inform that other staff was. Very friendly and efficient thank you for their kindness

The wait staff was not competent and overall experience was undesirable.

Waited fifteen minutes to be waited upon after seating. Without asking for a drink order, the waitress wanted the food order. when drinks ordered the arrived twenty minutes later with the food. No attention was given for refilling water, drinks or other needs. Waitress seemed more interested in other tables, when in the area. When the food came it was somewhat cold, and plates were removed before the table was finished eating. A most unpleasant experience, not to be repeated.

From the start of the dinner our waiter couldn't get anything right. He needed help opening the wine, the salads were wrong and it went downhill from there. After serving our dinner he never came back. He never checked on us or returned to see if we needed anything. We asked other waiters to find him and he never returned. He was not even in the dining room , just gone. Finally after a very long wait some other management person came over and made the excuse that it had gotten very busy . We asked for the bill. She came back some time later , apologized and provided desserts for everyone at the table and took the wine off the bill. It was a terrible finish to the dinner and I doubt we will ever go back. It was a special occasion that was ruined by terrible service. There was no excuse for the service we received here. If a waiter is new he should be supervised.

Ten years ago I visited this restaurant for business lunch, always wanted to return under different conditions. My wife and I came in for Sunday Brunch on New Years Even.

Had to dismiss the first server due to extremely poor attitude and response to customer request. Second server Eric was fantastic. Food kitchen to table service was a little slow and slightly cold upon arrival.

I'd do it again.....but beware of servers and make sure you inform them to bring food when ready.

Hostess was fantastic!

Host was rude. Meals were overcooked and ordered incorrectly. It was a holiday weekend and busy, but so disappointed with our dinner. Had booked a month before and was so looking forward to our visit. There are so many options in the city, not sure this is the best choice.

Beautiful place, amazing location, amazing food. I was really not expecting the food to be that good. I read some reviews and I was not expecting at all. It is pricey but I left feeling like it was worth the money. Our waitress (my bad I don't remember her name) was super nice. The only thing I have to complain is that I put that was my boyfriends birthday as a note in the reservation and I didn't get any candle or anything for him with the desert I ordered.

My daughter and I had hoped for a wonderful Christmas experience but were left disappointed. The Jumbo Prawn cocktail turned out to be 5 little shrimp for $18. I ordered the price fix prime rib dinner and daughter ordered the ciopinno. The meals were brought out but instead of ciopinno, a roasted pepper with a filling was brought out. After taking it away and coming back 20 minutes later, my meal was cold. They took my medium prime rib meal back twice. It now became medium well. I did not get the chowder that was a part of the price fix either. A total disappointing Christmas experience.

There was a special dinner for $54 to include soup or salad, prime rib w/ mashed potatoes and asparagus and dessert which we didn’t even want after our meal experience. It took a while to get our food and when it came, the presentation was a little off and the prime rib was over cooked. The mashed potatoes were very bland and tasted like boxed potatoes. The manager came over and took care of us with the bill but I was not in it for a discount. I just wanted great food. I am a Landry’s Club member and have been to several restaurants but the food here fell short.
