    Made a reservation weeks in advance, walked past numerous empty outside tables with plenty of staff to the hostess stand, asked to be seated outside and were told the available tables were all reserved. My fiance was not happy, but the hostess just laughed it off and we were seated at an inside table with a dead succulent table 'garnish.' There was some loud rude jerk having a Facetime conversation with his friends in spite of glares from everyone else in the room. When we left two hours later every table outside was still empty and had never been seated. We like Schoners a lot and go often. The staff (except this hostess) are great and the food and drinks are delicious, but this experience was soured by the seating and bad processes.

    Great food on Cannery Row with a pretty view! Be careful if you sit outside, you may be splashed or sprayed by the waves.
