We had a reservation for 8:30pm. When we arrived we were lucky to be placed on a special table facing the water. This turned out to be a mistake as nobody came to the table for 15+ minutes. Waiters kept walking past us without ever stopping. We eventually caved and asked the hostess for our waiter. With that out of the way, the waiter came out and told us they were closing the kitchen and to put an order in immediately. With all these issues out of the way we finally got our food which was fantastic (the Poke was amazing). Overall the service was horrible and ruined the whole experience. It is a shame as this place has such good food! I will never nor will I reccomend anybody to come to this restaurant.

The location is a short walk from where the boats take you to and from Alcatraz. The inside of the restaurant is very nice and the food was decent and not too expensive. The serving sizes look small but end of being filling.

A little on the pricey side for what you get, but the food was good. Nice location if you are going to or coming back from the Alcatraz cruise.

Delicious. Nice ambiance. Try the clams and mussels, the sauce is wonderful!

First time here for Sunday Brunch. Had the House-Smoked Salmon Benedict. It was fantastic. Had a bay. Very friendly staff, I will eat here again. I was very surprised that this restaurant was not busier given its location, but I would prefer this place over any of the "fine" eateries in Fisherman's Wharf.

Came here thanks to a $25 for $50 LivingSocial deal. Food is pretty good - but a bit on the pricey side. Wouldn't return without a deal.. not that it's THAT expensive, but it's kind of out of the way (the Embarcadero) from where I'd usually hang and I wouldn't go out of my way to come here. Nice views and a convenient date spot if you ARE in the area though! Duck spring rolls, $8 - yomzzzzzz Duck confit salad, $14 - pretty big portion and the pomegranate, citrus and pumpkin seeds are all very complementary to each other Garlic noodles, $10 - it's OK but it's not an authentic garlic noodle. obvs. Wish this was more garlicky. Small portion for $10 dollars.... Banana bread pudding, $8 oh JEAH........ banana bread, bruleed banana and ice cream.. can't go wrong yo.

Party of six had amazing view, food and service. Curry Lemongrass Mussels and Skillet Chocolate Cookie are to-die-for!
