Had a great time. We planned this dinner in advance (from Europe) for our trip to SF. It was also a birthday celebration. Great food an great service, a bit of an overkill maybe. You get several people at your table because each have different tasks (bringing and getting the plates, getting your orders and wines and answering questions/requests). There's a nice area to start with a cocktail if your table is not ready yet. The food was great. Nice fusion and 'local' seafood. It's a real night out. It does cost you a night out as well. People there come a bit dressed up but not too much, I guess that's what makes it San F? You can dress up but if you didn't, that's fine too. There's a nice view on the Bay (bridge) and in the restaurant there Ada aquariums (lobster, other fish). If you smoke and leave the table, you better prepare your host because the kitchen works very efficient and on time. Recommended. Oh! The oysters came from different areas. They were good but I've had better :)

I just love entering this restaurant, with a super cool aquarium and the best clams! It was perfect sitting outside and just admiring the Bay Bridge on a sunny day. Went there for brunch, food was really good, cocktails were good but pricey. Location, location, location. Easy access on Muni as well.

I love taking visitors here!! The view of the Bay Bridge is amazing- especially at night when the light show is going. They have $1 oysters during happy hour. They also have a large patio area for sunny days!

They have $1.05 Happy Hour, amazing oysters right by the Bay Bridge. I ordered one of their meat dishes, and I didn't think that it was too great. Definitely stick with the seafood. This place is pretty awesome. A nice place to splurge on if you don't make it during the happy hour.

Set on The Embarcadero, if nothing else, Waterbar has a lovely view. I dined here on a Friday night (with reservations, thankfully) - the place was bustling. We started the meal with complimentary sparkling water and a friend ordered a house-made club soda. Both drinks arrived sans bubbles. Not the end of the world, but if you like your sparkling water, realllly sparkling- beware. The shrimp cocktail and oysters were the best part of the meal and I would return again for these orders alone. Word around town it their happy hour oyster deal is a steal! $ It's a blessing that Waterbar has bread service because it took an hour and fifteen minutes for our entrees to arrive. Once they did, everything tasted great (...partly because I was starving and anything would have tasted great at that point). The dishes were well-plated, good portion sizes, and mixed the perfect amount of unique with approachable.

Soooooo delicious! I hadn't been in some time and went to the Waterbar for lunch with coworkers. Every dish was excellent... From the oysters, the ceviche, the green curry trout, to the chocolates for dessert. The assortment of flavors was perfect. So perfect we all felt as though we were on vacation. *sigh* I'm going through withdrawals...

Came here for a holiday lunch with my co-workers and service was excellent. We were greeted upon entering, hostess offered to take my jacket and hang it and were seated immediately since we had reservations already. We ordered the chilled shellfish/seafood platter to start with and it was so good. Oysters, clams, shrimp, lobster and crab! We also got the flat iron steak and white fish entrees, which were all delicious. Maybe we just ordered the right things, maybe it was because I didn't have to pay, but I enjoyed my visit here thoroughly. The view was, of course, excellent with the restaurant being right by the water and Bay Bridge. The caramel bread pudding for dessert was also scrumptious. Good times!

My husband and I took my 99-year old mother for special Sunday brunch. From making the reservation with a guy with a great sense of humor, to walking out the door satisfied with amazing food, this gorgeous place was a treat for all of us! They couldn't have been nicer to my mother, giving us a window table so she could look out at the water and up at the bridge with her poor eyesight. The darling waitress took extra care with us, but I have a feeling she does that with everyone. Several times the manager and someone else came by to be sure we were happy with everything--all in all a fabulous experience!! (Just wish the outside patio were much larger because on weekends without res. it is hard to get in--we tried the next weekend.) LOVE this place!
