The service here was almost non-existent. Other than acknowleging our reservation with a table near the window the hostess did not crack a smile or greet anyone in a warm manner. Our waitress did not refill drinks or stop by other than to take our order. The sweet and sour calamari was tasty my cioppino was not it was flavorless and I hardly touched it as did my mom hardly touch her food but the waitress did not ask why 90% of our food was still on our plate. We paid the bill and left. Will not return or recommend.

We were meeting out of town friends. I asked for the quietest table possible with a view if possible. THAT didn't happen, but I was quite pleased with the food quality, given that we were on Pier 39. The swordfish was terrific. Our guests all seemed happy with their food. Was just sorry not to get a view for our friends who live in Arizona.

Pier39にあるシーフードレストランです.以前,行った時に1時間くらい待つ必要があったので,今回はOpenTableアプリで予約して行きました.予約していったので,窓際の見晴らしのよい席に案内されました.1階にあるレストランですが,ゴールデンゲートブリッジがよく見えました.

食事は,
Garlic Roasted Whole Dungeness Crab

Bread BowlにはいったCLAM CHOWDER
を注文しました.

どちらも大変美味しかったです.Crabは2人でshareしましたが,量は十分でした.
Crabは日本と同じでカニの足の身を食べます.ガーリックオイルがかかっていて
手がベトベトになるの難点ですが,日本と違ったカニの味が楽しめます.

クラムチャウダーは,通常のスープ皿に張ったものもありますが,パンに入ったものの
方がパンも一緒に食べることができてよいと思います.なにより変わっているので,思い出になります.

全体的に大満足でした
HPに全メニューが紹介されているので,事前に見てみると良いと思います.

I went to Pier Market Seafood with a friend from out of town. We had the crab cake dinner, jambalaya and seafood penne pasta. We also had the fried scallops and garlic bread for appetizers. I would not recommend getting either the fried scallops or garlic bread, but we all enjoyed our entrees.

It was our first night in San Francisco and we were looking forward to dinner at a Fisherman's Wharf restaurant. We expected more based on the good reviews we read online. The food was good but nothing to write home about. Although the restaurant wasn't full, it was quite loud!

Great restaurant on the wharf. We got a table overlooking the pier, which was enjoyable. Seafood was excellent, especially dishes like the crisp scallops and the sole. Service a little slow. Worth a visit for sure.

Revisiting this renowned grilled seafood place again because of the great impression I had last time. The grilled scallops were crispy and golden brown - certainly great as an appetizer. The mixed grill portions were generous as ever - the salmon was a bit dry though the shrimps were fresh. The added lobster side was fleshy. The angus steak was slightly tough despite it was prepared medium rare. Again we were full to the brim so desserts were foregone. The server was attentive and friendly. This amounted to 90.97 (excluding gratuity) for an overall satisfying dinner.

This renowned seafood restaurant at pier 39 had free wifi for guests - very thoughtful; server made helpful suggestions to help save food and suit diner's budget; the seafood platter was huge - the added lobster side was great value for money, the calamari rings were a bit heavily breaded, the breaded shrimps were fresh, the breaded fish and chips were quite acceptable at this price. Portions were too generous for desserts, so settled for an Irish coffee. That amounted to $48.93 (service not included) - which really explained this place's popularity as the view, the food and the service made this a unique dining experience.

I had not been to Pier 39 in years. In fact, I was looking for Dante's Seafood Catch but it no longer was there but Pier Market Seafood was an excellent replacement. I dined with a business colleague and we both loved the clan chowder in a bread bowl and mixed seafood grill - the swordfish was excellent.

We were not impressed. I had the fried shrimp and my wife had the shrimp skewers. My shrimp was over cooked and had so much breading that you almost could not taste the shrimp. The shrimp for both orders were very small.
We will not be back.

We had a reservation however we still had to wait 15 minutes before we were given a table. Therefore what's the poont of the reservation process especial since we didn't have a problem in any of our other restaurant reservations.The service was quick and pleasant afterwards . The food was nice and particularly the clam chowder. I had ordered seared ahi tuna . It came cold . I know it's tricky to prepare . It is clearly a tourist spot. However I don't appreciate the way we are "forced" to give minimum 18% tip . I know it's part of the local culture but let's start with 15% .

Went there to have dinner ahead of going to Alcatraz. Had someone over 12 that wanted something off the kids menu and so asked the waiter and he said he'd have to ask his manager and then never did. Then came back and asked if we had any questions about the menu and just didn't even remember he was supposed to ask his manager. He then forgot about our table a couple of times. All and all there are much better places on the pier to eat, we won't be going back here.
