We had reservations for 645. We got there at 6:40 they said there were 10 minutes behind. 45 minutes later still no table and the receptionist never said sorry or even acknowledgingly we were there. Worst customer service I've ever had, will not recommend this restaurant
This has always been a nice place...a bit pricey, but has had a nice seafood menu. Our server was relatively new, did not know the food, and was very inattentive. When my dinner was delivered, it was missing the rice pilaf it was supposed to come with. We couldn't find the server and finally flagged down the owner who brought it to me. When the bill came, we were charged $43 for the salmon. I didn't realize this was not the price...my wife ordered it...and we didn't figure it out until we were in the parking lot. I went back and they were apologetic, explaining that they had different prices for each item (banquet, large party, etc) and gave me cash for the difference. I decided not to say that I had tipped and paid whatever tax there was on the higher amount...it was too expensive for the size of the salmon. Too many other places to get good salmon in the area.
The food was subpar and expensive.
I have been here before and found it to be somewhere I'd like to go back to but after this time I may be having second thoughts. Normally I'm a steak and potatoes type of eater but I wanted something different this time so I ordered Atlantic Salmon with a Caesar salad. The salad was dry and tasteless so I didn't eat it. The salmon - what ever was on it - was not something I'll ever eat again. Needless to say I didn't eat that either. I did eat the oysters I ordered and the ice cream desert. Kind of hard to mess up ice cream.
Will I ever eat there again? Maybe is all I can say. I was very disappointed in my meal.
Too busy and they mentioned it way too many times to us to feel uncomfortable... food didn’t have any flavor, potatoes were watery and we could’ve shared no one gave us that option for sides. Just surprised at over all service. Won’t go back.
Will keep coming back. Great atmosphere. The oyster appetizer was sooo good. Entree was tasty. Overpriced kids menu however.
I would like to thAnk Jess our waitress who was outstanding!
It was our first time dining at McNamara’s. We really enjoyed our time! The food was awesome and very friendly service! We’ll be back soon!
The food was excellent with great drinks
Pleasant atmosphere and excellent service
Still waiting for a response from manager concerning an error on our bill.
Everything was great at the restaurant! The service, the food and the welcoming feeling you get from the staff! My only thing was it was very pricey for the amount of food received. However the quality and taste of the food was phenomenal!
Perfect table in a back room with a piano player for our date night. Food, atmosphere and service all top notch!
Very quiet as there were not many people. Very friendly.

Steaks were not good at all. We were all disappointed especially for the price we paid. The side dishes were acceptable except for the creamed spinach. It was too watery, looked almost like soup. I wanted to like it so much to support our local businesses, but I left the restaurant feeling like I got ripped off. We spent about $350! Also, the manager looked under dress. It ruined the ambiance. As for service, our waiter was trying really hard, but he needed help. We waited for awhile to order. I blamed that on management though.
An outstanding atmosphere for a romantic dinner. The piano player sets the perfect mood with recognizable songs from many eras, but the volume is not overbearing even when seated close. McNamara's is a rare find with great food and an outstanding atmosphere with live music.
The wait person was very nice. The wine was great. The steak - not so great. It was good, just not great.
Baked potato was dry and the skin was crisp?
Not the worst - not the best.
I treated special friends to a Bday dinner and they both appreciated everything about the restaurant.
Great ambiance. delightful, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Very tasty dishes and wonderful presentation. And DEElicious bread pudding!
Look forward to my next visit.
Onion soup was very good. Delicious steak dinner.
Waitstaff was very nice.
Service was great never an empty glass. Dinner was spectacular. Steal was so tender I could cut it with a butter knife. Staff extremely friendly.
Ordered 2 prime ribs and both were way over done. I ordered medium rare and the prime rib looked like it been sitting under the heating lamps for way to long, meat was very dry, closer to medium well. My niece’s prime rib ordered medium was brown in color and very close to being well done. Cream spinach was more like spinach soup, the horseradish smashed potatoes were over salted and couldn’t taste the horseradish and the potatoes au gratin was meh. I started with lemonade which was so awful and I had to ask fo switch to ice tea. Overall the worst meal I’ve had in a very long time. On the upside, when I told the server that the meat was not served as ordered they offered us a dessert or after dinner cocktail which I passed on both.
Food good, service was good. But I hate when there's not even a little bit of vegetables even though ala carte. Plates look empty with just a steak and potato.
Kind of more expensive then expected. Will come again but probably not too often.
Service was horrible. We were in the restaurant for over 2 1/2 hours. Frequently with empty glasses or waiting over ten minutes for requested items if they showed up or we had to request a second time with another employee. Very disappointed from previous experiences years in the past.
We started off pretty good. Then all our food was not served at the same time. One side dish did not make it to the table until the meal was almos over. The coffee was served without spoons or sweetness being on the table. Took for ever to get dessert served. The prices was on the expensive side for the service and on a Sunday afternoon 5:30 pm how can you be out of the most favorite steak bone in ribeye. Sorry we will not be back.
Loved the Piano Player and our server was very warm and personable. The food is exceptional but the price is a little high. If you order a steak, you have to order sides as the steak comes solo.
Excellent service, amazing food, wonderful everything!!
My wife and I went to McNamara’s for our wedding anniversary. We were warmly greeted and promptly seated. Our waiter was excellent and his service was outstanding. The dinner was very good, but a bit pricey. Overall it was an excellent evening.
The food here was very good! Unfortunately it is all very expensive so I do not think I will be coming back very often. There was almost no one there, the room felt very stale. This place will shut down soon if they do not lower their prices.
Seems like the restaraunt might be under new management. The new patio space looks nice from the street but it’s not completed and looks messy at best. Sat on the patio and given menus then forgotten for about 10 - 15 minutes. Came back and took our drink order and then dissapeared for a while again. When they finally returned with our drinks we decided to ask for the check and leave. Disappointed because we had been here before and had good experiences but this definitely wasn’t one of them. Will give them some time to work out the kinks and give them another try in the future.
Although this meal was a bit pricey the food, service, and ambiance were outstanding.
The service was great throughout the course of the dinner. The only reason for the low Service score was due to the food that we just could not finish and one of the servers took our prime rib and other dishes back to box up for us to take home but when we got home we realized we were missing some of the dishes like prime rib! We called back the same evening and spoke with the manager about it and we were told they would compensate us on the next visit if we chose and we were fine with that.
The food and service was great. McNarama had changed the ambiance as the place was so dark in the past that it was very hard to read the menu. Not sure if it was combo of eating earlier in the day and the room happened to have windows, but sure made it more enjoyable!
It was good customer service and the food was great.
We have not been to McNamara's in many years. WE happen to be in Dublin and thought we would try it again and we were very pleased. The atmosphere is great, the service was excellent as well as the food. We will go back regularly.
Father’s Day dinner with our young kids. We went early, as to not disturb patrons with our toddlers - the ownership and management was incredible. Super fast, helpful, and the food was amazing!
My wife and I have been going to McNamara's since it first opened and it is always on our short list of places to go when we want to celebrate a special occasion, take friends out to dinner or just enjoy a quiet evening out.
Drove 60 miles and it was worth it. Should be rated as one of the best steak houses in the Bay area.
The BEST Prime Rib!!
For our Anniversary. We were treated very nicely, and made us feel like we picked the right restaurant to have our special dinner. Thanks to the receptionist, waiter, pianist, and the manager/owner of the restaurant.
Great service and great food
