Looking for absolute top notch service? COME HERE. We came for an anniversary dinner and the Waterbar employees took the time to write a personalized card for us put on our table with the most incredible views. Multiple servers catered to our table and wished us well. Food was incredible with a complimentary glass of dessert champagne with dessert. Great food, great view and great employees - we’ll be coming back soon and with guests!
Food, service, view all amazing!
It was our first time coming here for dinner. It was 8pm on a Sunday. But the place was lively. Everything was great, minus the very rude and ignorant of others, a family of 4 adults and 2 children. The baby boy was behaving perfectly. But the 4-5 year girl wa as loud and obnoxious and not one of her parents tried to calm her down. It was ridiculous. I would hate to be on a romantic first date and see this.
Memorable evening-thank you so much!!
Poor service, overcooked lobster.
Great service. Waitstaff was helpful and did not rush us. The food selection was unique and the dishes were outstanding. The noise level made conversation somewhat difficult but I don't know how this could be mitigated. Maybe acoustical panels in the ceiling? The views were amazing!
hanks so much 3rdDan, Best, Rich T.
Beautiful dinner with my husband and adult daughter. Great views, excellent service, delicious and creative food.
Thanks so much for enjoying with family Barbara! Best, Rich T.
Food was great and the ambiance was wonderful. Great view of the Ba Bridge all lit up at night
Thanks Mark! Rich T.
Beautiful views, excellent service.
Thanks Chance! Rich T.
Food was amazing. Service was impeccable. Caesar was our waiter and was incredibly patient with our questions and knowledgeable of the menu. And the service went beyond him to the entire staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit!!
Thank you Tpuckens! We take such pride in our entire staff, and Cesar is a star - so nice to hear your comments. Our best, Rich T.
About what we expected albeit very pricey for what you get.
The food was wonderful but the service was lacking. We expected a wait for oysters but not the 40 minutes it actually was. The waitress was very nice, but she kept saying things were coming when we asked, but they didn't until we reminded her again. Also, I asked for crayons and a coloring book for my granddaughter, but that never came and she became involved with something else so I didn't ask again. Nevertheless, it was an overall good experience--again, the food, ambience, and view were great.
Hello Carol, Thank you for the details. We will get very challenged when we have 30 or more tables at the same time enjoying oysters and shellfish - these items are slow food, and take time for shucking. We understand the wait and do our best to shuck with vigor. Best regards, Rich T.
We had a great experience. The food was delicious and the service was great.
Beautiful restaurant that looks right out to the SF bridge. The restaurant had a wonderful energetic atmosphere will very diverse people. They wonderfully accommodated one of our members in our party who was vegan, and the chef personally created an all vegan dish that was huge! Our waiter Mike was very friendly and helpful throughout the entire night! Will definitely be returning again!
Thank you for sharing Nina! We so appreciate the kind support, Our best, Rich T.
I’ve been dining at the restaurant since it opened. Had the worst experience I’ve ever had at this restaurant. I was seated in an undesirable very noisy part of the restaurant with multiple large parties. The service was terrible. When I told the waitress my drink was watered down she told me “that’s the way the bar makes it” when I’m spending almost $500 for dinner I don’t expect that kind of service. I’m going to think twice about going back.
I understand your disappointment and apologize. This is one individual not executing standards we have held for years. That is unfair for our guest and her colleagues. Thank you, Rich T.
Good was great! We missed that there were sides to the shared cod platter, so we ended up ordering too much food.
My only deception is the table. I made my reservation one month in advance to have a perfect table with the view and we were seated at a spot were one of us could appreciated any view.
The meal, service, dessert and view were all together wonderful. We really enjoyed our time and highly recommend this place.
Thanks coburns! Rich T.
This beautifully designed restaurant is excellent in a number of ways. The food was generous and expertly prepared. We shared the Muscovy duck done two ways--confit and roasted. It was by far the best duck we've ever had. The view of the Bay Bridge, with its spectacular light effects was a romantic touch that will bring us back again. The service was light-hearted and attentive and made for a memorable experience and we shall return!
With appreciation JuneM. Our best, Rich T.
Food good, but portions are too small for price.
Thanks for your thoughts Susanna, Rich T.
This was a nice place to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The food was good (we had the pre-fixe meal of fresh tuna airy caviar, lobster stuffed with crab and a scrumptious dessert). The views of the illuminated Bay Bridge and giant aquariums added to the ambiance. We appreciated that the restaurants comped our cocktails because it too a very long time between appetizer and entree.
Our table consisted of a chair and on the banquette. Although we’re the same height, I sat much lower on the banquette. And the table was wide, so we felt far apart.
The women’s bathroom was closed 👎🏽
Had a lovely Valentines dinner with my girlfriend. We got lucky and got a table by the window that had an amazing view of the Bay Bridge that transitioned from sunset to dancing lights. The ONLY thing that wasn’t awesome was the food - just okay. For Presentation I give the food 10/10. Taste maybe 7/10, but the view made up for it. Avoid the scallops on the appetizer menu. WAY TOO salty.
We had a fine Valentine Day lunch, but I wish there had been more choices to select from. Was hoping for something a bit more special for seafood selections. Also, the dessert selections were good, but not special for the occasion. Previous visits were more memorable.
Amazing view,food and service
It was our first time here. Super apprehensive because it was such a nice restaurant but everyone there made us feel very comfortable. We were about an hour late for our reservation and they still were able to accommodate us with a baby and we got a table with a very beautiful view of the bay bridge. Everyone was super friendly and our server even gave us two glasses of sparkling wine before we headed out. Can’t wait to go back!!
That is so great to Heather! We hope to welcome you and your family often! Thank you, Rich T.
Love it! thanks Gail! Rich T.
I booked the reservation for a business meal. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. Our server was great. We will definitely be back.
Many thanks Joanie, Rich T.
Good meal , awesome presentation and lovely views of the ocean
Great food and service!
Waterbar is such an iconic place and because of that you expect great food. I was pleasantly surprised by the great service though. Sometimes at a place like this the wait staff can make you feel like they are doing you a favor. Not here! They were fast, efficient and sensitive to the fact that I was having a conversation and they tried not to interrupt. The food was fantastic! Anyway whether you are having a one on one dinner or a group hang, this is the place. Simply awesome!
Hello Howlerman, So nice of you to share the positive thoughts. Our best, Rich T.
One of my favorite places in SF! Beautiful view of the bridge, huge variety of fresh oysters, nice drinks, great service!
Great to hear and thanks for the share Hannah! Rich T.
Great views of the bridge and colossal fish tanks complement the white tablecloth service and first class menu. Oysters a bit on the meager side, but solid appetizers and spectacular shared dishes make this a destination. The grilled fish with uni fried rice was one of the best dishes of the year so far, complemented with deep fried baby kale which added a sophisticated crunch. The shared duck came with a deep teriyaki inspired dipping sauce, but it was the kimchi pancake covered in duck confit, crema and flying fish roe that stole the show. Appetizers were all good and not too big so as to interrupt the main event. Wine list has a few hidden gems and reliable standbys under $100, but you can reach for the moon as well. Had a great experience and will be back soon.
Hello CE, A warm thank you for sharing, Rich T.
Amazing experience. Our server Samael was great helped us chose the best oyster for our night and gave great suggestions for our meal.
The staff was so nice to my boyfriend and I, and the view is unbeatable.
Thank you Sebastian! Rich T.
