Having been at Waterbar for lunch and/or dinner a number of times, it is totally reliable and meets expectations established on my first visit. Fantastic location and experience.

We had an amazing evening celebrating my brother-in-law's birthday! Although pricey, the experience and food is worth it. From our server to the sommelier, the staff was extremely friendly, accommodating and welcoming. They even brought out a special dessert for my sister who is celiac and couldn't partake in the birthday dessert. We will absolutely be back for the next special occasion.

Phenomenal brunch! I have celiac disease and the entire team went above and beyond for my safety. I highly recommend Waterbar and will most definitely be back next time we’re in SF.

Food extremely salty. Two different dishes flavor lost. Salt necessary but way overdone.

Excellent views; service; food!
The music was a bit loud and distracting and the room was cold.
However, our server was wonderful and went out of his way to turn the air conditioner down.
We would definitely go back!

Three of us had lunch on a weekday. Each ordered a different entree and they were all superb. We had the Yellowtail Sandwich, the Swordfish and the Ling Cod. Each dish was unique and delicious.

The noise level however was very distracting. It was difficult to hear each other. I would consider returning during a non peak dining time which might help address this issue.

I would recommend the Waterbar to any friend for the quality of food and the stunning view - but would warn them about the noise level.

We celebrated our 30th Valentine’s Wedding Anniversary.
We let the restaurant know ahead. They treated us wonderfully! From the ‘front desk’ to the final goodbye! Everyone was attentive and genuinely hospitable towards us! We had so much fun and enjoyed the delicious food!
Can’t wait to go back!!

My husband and I went for our Valentine’s Day holiday. We really enjoyed the food and the service. Although there was an issue with the parking, it was rectified by the manager before we left the restaurant.
