Great location. Wonderful table with bridge view. Good menu
Great meal, wonderful service. Very enjoyable experience
Amazing service and impeccable cuisine!
Love it and grazie MichaelM! Best, Rich T.
Fantastic food, service and views!
Food was very mediocre and excessively priced. Ambiance was very nice due to it's location, fine appointments and spectacular views in some parts of the dining areas. Our party was expected to order everything at once, which made the experience rushed, rather than leisurely. Service was very slow.
Overall, our experience was very disappointing.
Thanks for the feedback and sorry to disappoint in any manner, Best, Rich T.
Great oysters and other seafood with dramatic view of the Bay Bridge lights - fun place to dine
Love this place for the views, service, food and selection of wines.
Appreciate you Neil! Best, Rich T.
Menu changes significantly since Oct. 2020. Dishes are not appealing. Not my taste anymore. I ate soup and French Fries.
We do not quite understand the sentiment, as we just introduced a beautiful summer seasonal menu and Chefs Parke and Justin have been with us since we opened. Best regards, Rich T.
Excellent food and views in a beautiful restaurant. Highly recommend.
A little hard to hear friends talk about table.
Thank you very much MariaM!
Good was just ok. Service was very good
Relaxing Bayside venue, attractive plates, good taste, but over-priced. Parking is a problem.
Thanks JamesK, We are still a fantastic spot to come and celebrate life and remember that this pandemic has caused a spike in food prices, home prices, gas prizes and The City completely rearranged the Embarcadero traffic in front of our business. We are doing our best considering how much has changed in the last year and we appreciate everyone's support so very much. Note that we will look to try and return a valet service in the fall. Our best, Rich T.
Outstanding with great view, noisy & be sure to be given correct menu.
Thank you Robertw!
New abbreviated menu, but very interesting selections. The service and ambiance was fantastic. I would recommend this restaurant to my foodie friends and plan to return often myself.
Our current summer menu is fantastic and not abbreviated in any manner so come down by teh bay and enjoy life! Our best, Rich T.
Loved meeting the GM. Indoor dining is beautiful and the Kumomotos-heaven.
Had a awesome birthday lunch !
Hi RalphV - Thanks for enjoying and celebrating at Waterbar! Best regards, Rich T.
Omg! It’s just perfect!
I love Water Bar. It’s one of my favorites.It was the only restaurant that I went to during the Pandemic.❤️
Hearts back at ya EileenT! Best, Rich T.
Loved the outdoor dining and view.
Thanks for enjoying KarenB! Best, Rich T.
Tuesday was the perfect day for lunch at Waterbar. The winds finally calmed down and the temperature was around 75 degrees. You can't ask for much more than that.
I started with a cocktail I've wanted to try since I first saw it online. The pirate lilikoi. It was just as refreshing as I expected it to be. It went well with a few oysters and then the grilled calamari.
As an entree I had the albacore tuna with rice noodle salad. The dish is plentiful and delicious, and paired perfectly with a sauvignon blanc.
I was also happy to see that the housemate potato chips are back. My next visit I'll need to have the rockfish sandwich with fried green tomatoes and the chips.
Because it was such a beautiful day we also had to have the sticky toffee pudding. That's the best desert ever.
A wonderful lunch - the right spot for our business meal.
We like the sound of that ! Thanks! Rich t.
Tremendous food and experience. The best service in town to boot!
Fantastic to hear SC0621! THANK YOU! Best, Rich T.
I have been here many times and it is consistanly amazing! I am still thinking about my meal this last time especially the Sticky Toffee! Get it with the pairing.
That makes us so happy - THANKS Virg! Best, Rich T.
I enjoyed this place. It was a beautiful day and we were seated outside. We started with drinks the Aperol Spritz is divine. For appetizers we had oysters and the beer battered delta asparagus which was to die for considering I don't like beets at all but I tell you those pickled beets I couldn't even tell they were beets and on my plate they really brought the dish together. Our entree's were the blackened rockfish sandwich and the lobster roll and we finished it off with raspberry cheesecake. It was such a great meal not to mention great service!
great to hear and many thanks luv2eat! Best, Rich T.
Everything was delicious! We frequent this location a lot and every time, the oysters, food, and drinks are delicious. Today, the featured oysters were different from the regular Fanny Bay ones. ( I think we preferred the smaller Fanny bay ones)
If you are looking for a restaurant with a good view, this is your place. If you are looking for a place with a vary of food options that sound appetizing, this is not your spot. Disappointed by the food choices my table ordered fresh oysters, salads, and cocktails. After being disappointed with that we decided to skip dessert. Won't be back, but glad that we tried it out.
Hello Imani, Sorry that you subjectively could not find some attractive food items. Be well, Rich T.
It was dope! I.just wish thre was more seafood on the menu
But the food was good.
They treated my wife nice with a birthday card and dessert presentation.
Thanks o much JamalH!
Amazing!….from the food to the ambiance to your staff to the recommendations! BRAVO!!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
The patio seating was perfect as was the weather. The food is fresh best quality available.
Many thanks for enjoying GaryG!
Great food and excellent service!
many thanks JeanM!
Chris was great! Oysters were amazing!
Beautiful setting, service was superb and helpful; oysters were fantastic as was the calamari with squid ink noodles(appetizer). Our table had the lobster roll, soft shell crab in a New Orleans stew with South Carolina "gold" rice- exquisite. The crab cocktail was extraordinarily generous. Will definitely return.
Thank you so much for teh kind comments jchsf, best, Rich T.
Lovely afternoon. Table not the best so will know what to ask for next time.
We were seated upstairs in the crows nest type of area. Very nice views even though we were toward the street, not the water. We did see the underside of the Bay Bridge and the bay but the drinks and food were great. I had the salad which was frankly a tad underwhelming but the lobster bisque was perfect and the presentation was nice. My friend's butter bean tartine was excellent as was her halibut ceviche. She had a wonderful gin cocktail and I had the red ale which was from SF somewhere. All was great and we found parking fairly close.
Thanks so much AnnieN and we look forward to your return, best, Rich T.
Service was unattached. Meal lacked character and presentation was average. Requested Medium on my steak which came medium Well. Quite disappointing.
Might explain why the service was slow and lacked interest.
Much much better experience at their affiliate EPIC across the walk last evening.
Would trade that experience last night for our 30th anniversary we had tonight.
So sorry to hear of a disconnect with you and we apologize for the disappointment. Thanks, Rich
I will not return to Waterbar ever again. We were not impressed with the food, host help, and sitting arrangements. I thought the hostess was not friendly and the girl who sat us brought us blankets and THEN they were on our bill and we didn't know until we were in the car. $25 each!!! They seated us at a very windy spot and then told us the heaters were out. We asked about blankets and they brought us two but it was NEVER mentioned that we were being charged. Never has any restaurant charged us for blankets when it was freezing and their heaters were broken. Food was not impressive. My drink was good and the only thing my table of 4 liked was the bread for $6. Won't ever be going back.
The service team was great and very knowledgeable, and each dish was beautifully presented. We sat outside and as the temperature dropped, the staff moved the heaters to be sure we were warm enough. A real pleasure all around.
Great service, ambiance and food. Portion size a bit small. Not of the piece of salmon (my order)but one needed to order sides to balance the meal.
Amazing thank you
The staff was warm and accommodating. Food was exceptionally good and the view and overall ambience are spectacular. Pics with the bay bridge in the background seemed standard for many fellow diners. A great establishment for any occasion.
