"Breathtaking Bay Bridge views from every table, both indoors and from the "tented patio", makes this Embarcadero seafooder a wonderful place to relax and absorb the beautiful setting, while the Californian fare is deemed well executed."

    More vegetarian options would be appreciated! Only one option, which didn’t sound appealing. Having at least 2 vegetarian options would be nice.

    What a wonderful and delicious dinner. The service quality of food and presentation was beyond expectation. We weren’t rushed through any portion of our dinner and had a chance to really enjoy them. We can’t wait to come back.

    Had Mothers Day dinner at The Waterfront Restaurant. The views of the Bay are, as always, beautiful and never tiring of. Our reservation to sit by the wondow was honored. The seafood was excellent, especially the scallops. All in All, this is a great place to dine, especially on special occasions.

    I have been here a few times and it's always great atmosphere, wonderful food and impeccable service. The menu has a lot of seafood options as well as a vegan option. They do have meat as well but we always eat seafood there so I can't comment on that. It's a beautiful spot specially at night when the bridge is illuminated and it's visible from their covered patio area. It's a great spot for a special lunch or dinner.

    We brought our friends here for Sunday Brunch and to celebrate a birthday. They raved about the view, our service was attentive and well done. Two people had the Cioppino and loved it, one declared it was the best they ever had. Everyone was very satisfied with the food, ambiance and experience.
