Great service with excellent views and even better food!
The lobster roll and poke was delicious.
Wonderful setting. Delicious food. Excellent service!
Wonderful staff a service! Went above and beyond to help celebrate our special occasion, with great table, kind message on our dessert bowl, and free champagne!
Great service and the food is always good, consistently good.
Great restaurant and setting but limited seafood choices. Too bad! Why would someone order Stingray? Overall food was delicious and service top notch.
Totally enjoyed our Waterbar experience. We had family from out of town who loved the view, food and the atmosphere. Our server was very distracted and slow with our table, but other restaurant staff members jumped in and made up for the lapse in service.
The atmosphere and view were fantastic. However I didn't think the food was a great value. The portions were tiny (except for the fries) and the options were limited. We were disappointed to learn there were no beers on tap. Also, our water glasses had smudges on them. I had the swordfish, which was cooked perfectly, and tasted good (not great). The service was decent. I wanted to like this place, but it was just ok.
As this was brunch, I was less able to rate the food - although fine. The back room lacks charm and perhaps some things can be done to make it have a nicer ambiance ..
A spectacular venue with stunning Bay Bridge views and quite good food that surpasses most such large scale restaurants on the waterfront.
The restaurant is beautiful and the location is lovely. The selection of oysters was amazing and our waiter seemed very knowledgeable about the oyster selections. We ordered the snapper to share and the prime rib to share (medium rare). The waiter didn’t debone the fish for us and our prime rib was very very rare. So, while the oysters were good and it was fun trying such a nice selection, the rest of our meal was kind of disappointing.
Fantastic food, awesome service and amazing view of the water and bay bridge. I asked for a window seating for my family of 4 and they made it happen. It's pricey but the food was delicious from appetizers to dessert. Will definitely be back but maybe for date night. 😉
Made a reservation for a special occasion with my girlfriend and the restaurant did not disappoint. Great food with beautiful view onto the Bay Bridge. Also, interior decor is interesting, with columns made into aquariums with live fish in them.
All in all, I will definitely come back to this place for another special occasion.
Fabulous food, good recommendations by the wait staff... Noise level was really high
Best meal! Combination of flavors was excellent combined with great service.
Love to take out of towners here. Blown away by the view, with the great food being icing on the cake. Valet parking and right at a Muni Metro stop.
On each visit I have loved the buzzy atmosphere and the great food.
I love this restaurant - It is my new best restaurant
The food was great and it was not rushed. It is a great place to go to when the sun is setting
It was a glorious day to sit and watch the boats on the bay as we slurped yummy oysters. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. We just loved our Sunday lunch there!
Food and view was beautiful and delicious. Food was delayed coming out but service staff repeatedly apologized as was very attentive.
Very classy restaurant! The service was great. The food...very pricey; petite servings; beautiful and creative presentation/plating. Super gorgeous view.
We celebrated our anniversary lunch at Waterbar and it was truly exceptional.
The view is outstanding, and the food is absolutely incredible, as are the wine choices. The ambiance is also beautiful, especially for a Romantic meal.
We were also fortunate enough to have Gabby as a server and she was a complete joy to chat with. She made sure we had an excellent time on our special occasion and we thank her and the restaurant for this great experience.
I highly recommend Waterbar.
We had excellent service by all and an especially accommodating waiter
Waterbar is all about Hospitality
I have lost count of how many times I have dined at Waterbar. This time was for a business lunch with out-of-towners. At the last minute, my guests told me that they were going to be an hour late. I called Erin, and what was her answer -- "not a problem." Not because they were not busy -- they were packed. Many restaurants would give you a hard time -- not Waterbar.
I had the pre-fixe this time around. Nice crispy mini dungeness crab cakes for an appetizer, a pork cripenette for the entree plus desert. Don't miss whatever soup they are having, the oyster of the day and any of the fresh fish. One of our absolute favorites anywhere.
The place to go for fresh locally sourced oysters. The service is great--I'm never disappointed. Every dish is an adventure and a delight.
I love Waterbar! It is always my "go to" for a special occasion. I had some good friends of mine with me for a birthday celebration. The birthday "girl" was so happy and I really appreciate you honoring my request for a window table.
I very much appreciate it and will be back soon.
Until then, Thanks for a great lunch and afternoon. Holly C. Kully
Very attractive restaurant with two circular aquariums to entertain you. Excellent and unusual seafood presentations, moderately priced for a SF restaurant. 3 of our 4 dishes were great, smoked sablefish sandwich was a little to heavy for my taste. Service good when we arrived for lunch, but quickly overwhelmed as the place filled up. Clearly short on staff. Great cocktails. Only real complaint was an order of Chardonnay which came with a whopping $26 bill!
Oysters were exquisitely delicious! The service was just right. Views of the Bay Bridge are unmatched.
Great atmosphere, good service and food was really good. This is place is great for all occasions and you can't beat the view.
If your wanting a beautiful view of the bay bridge at dinner, this place can't be beat! The food was good but the menu is limited. The price is high considering the portions provided. I tried the squid ink fettuccine which was good but for $19, I thought it would have more than 2 ounces or less of noodles . It literally was maybe three bites and done. If your going on a date, expect to pay at least $140 after two meals, drinks and maybe a appetizer.
Great seafood place and friendly service. I especially liked the ultimate Bloody Mary.
The nose-up attitude when asked for the most basic services, and the forced attitude to come and ask if everything is OK, and turn their back and walk away before you can explain what can be done better to make their guest feel both valued and respected.
The food is reasonably good, but the service is so bad that they don't belong in the market that they are trying to penetrate.
Too bad, as it is a very nice location, with a great view. It seems as though they feel that the location is enough and they don't have to do anything beyond that to please their patrons.
The service was outstanding; everyone we came in contact was helpful and so friendly from the manager to the busboys! The food was creative and delicious. The only drawback to us was the price of the glasses of “house wines.” But I guess we were in San Francisco!! We would definitely return.
Another outstanding meal! Our friends had never been at Waterbar before. They were extremely impressed!
The service was great as well. As always, the view of the Bay Bridge was beautiful.
What a beauifully setting for a nice restuarant. Looking out toward the Bay Bridge and large indoor fish tanks, give this restaurant a lovely setting for a special occasion or meals with friends. Food is high quality and innovative. Service was friendly and attentive. Would recommend!
Really loved the ambiance and enjoyed all of the food. It would have been helpful if the wait staff could have offered to debone our whole fish.
Mediocre, overpriced food but nice view and aggressive water service.
