This is probably one of my favorite restaurants in the country. If you travel to San Francisco, you have to experience the views with great food.

I brought a young friend for his first time and he was stunned by the views. He also really enjoyed the seafood linguini. I had my usual wedge salad and clam chowder and thought they were better than ever. Service is always really friendly.

We visited this place after fleet week and they were out of everything. No seafood platter, no deserts nothing. The waiter laughed about it an kept on saying that it has been busy during fleet week as if it was our fault that we were too late. We were not offered one free drink, nothing. Horrible place and will never come back.

We had a very enjoyable dinner. It is a very well run establishment with professional waitstaff and very good food. They were attentive without being overbearing. The location is great in Ghirardelli square. I would recommend to others visiting the area.

I come every October for the Blue Angels, but wont eat after 530, it is too loud, and ridiculous noise level from overhead music, even crazy loud in the restroom. such a waste of atmoshphere.

The food is over priced for the quality. The hosts seemed overwhelmed during check in and did not prioritize customers standing in front of them. The waiter seemed uninterested in his job. The restaurant cancelled Happy Hour but didn’t have this information on the website. I’ve been coming to this place for many years and I think that was my last time. I was thoroughly disappointed

This was our second experience dining at McCormick and Kuleto’s. Both times the food and service have been flawless! The options are always exciting and the ingredients are fresh. There are beautiful views of the bay no matter where you sit, although we’ve been lucky enough to sit right by a window both times. My 4 year old son has been with my both times and loved his choices from the kids menu. We have officially added M&K to our “must do” list every time we visit the city!

This restaurant met all my expectations. From the accommodating staff to the excellent dishes and ambiance, do not miss this experience. I travelled from Alaska for my visit to San Francisco and found this place by chance. We had lunch one day and was so impressed we made dinner reservations a few days later. All the food was excellent, as was the wine.

We made a reservation & we were hoping it would really be a special evening dinner. Instead we were stuck in a small corner surrounded by very large, loud parties. The food was good with a couple of minor exceptions (the spinach and mushrooms was not good).

I dined here years ago. The restaurant and the view never disappoint. I was disappointed in the menu selection. I remember there being a lot more options on the menu, especially a lot more fresh fish selections.

Only a minor issue with wait staff clearing plates whilst still eating, other than that the venue, views of the Bay and quality of the food was awesome.

The tone of our visit was set after entering the restaurant and the maitre d coughed with covering his mouth and as we entered with other guests. He continued with his unshielded cough as he showed us to our table, while walking through the restaurant as other guest were eating their meals. The waitress was very personable and nice but it was difficult to overcome my initial contact with the staff. The food was ok, nothing special.

Very elegant restaurant with commanding views of San Francisco bay. Unfortunately, our service was lackluster. frdpite very friendly wait staff, they appeared to be very understaffed that evening, and service was exceptionally slow. The restaurant kindly printed special menus for us with a welcome to our family at the top. Nice touch!
With a large group of 12 people, and we need to split the bill, which created unnecessary confusion.
But overall the food was excellent, the ambience is wonderful, it’s excellent for a family reunion. We just opted to go over Ghirardelli chocolate for dessert instead.

The food was delicious and the staff was so friendly. We were celebrating my 18th Birthday and they brought me a cake with a candle. Was a great experience and everyone in the party enjoyed it. I am planning on going back in the future.

The service was terrible. It took 30 minutes for our server to take our order. Another 30 minutes for our food to arrive. 15 minutes for our check. The restaurant was not busy on Sunday at 5:00

Amazing location, great views; however our experience was below average. The hostess was unpleasant. The waitress seemed bothered. The food was overpriced and not fresh. The coffee was terrible, it was served to us cold three times and I feel like the last time was reheated in microwave. I had to run to Starbucks for a fresh cup of coffee.
We asked to move tables because other patrons were loud and obnoxious but the hostess refused to accommodate us so we got a table at the bar. Also, everything took a long time. We waited over 45 min for our food.
Our experience at the bar was better.
We will not be returning and will not recommend to friends.
