"We chose this restaurant because it was near where we were staying and didn't want to have to go far. I had the scallops - which were perfectly done and seasoned well. The only thing I didn't care for was the "au gratin" potatoes...very bland...but the restaurant is lovely - the wine choices were great - we both enjoyed it!"

"We picked this restaurant because it was near a place we were sightseeing (Cabrillo National Monument). It was a great surprise, since we had a great meal - a great table by the window - great cocktails - and a great wait-person! She edited the cocktails we ordered to our taste; helped us choose from their menu (we had the fish tacos & the crab louie salad - we both loved our meals!); and was personable too! Really enjoyed this Saturday lunch before we went off to hike around the point! We were there on the early side, so it was quiet - but it's a large restaurant with different dining areas and a beautiful decor! Enjoyed it thoroughly!"

The main dining room, decorated with French antiques, exudes quiet, inviting grace and opens onto a large greenhouse filled with plants and fresh flowers. This airy room's elegantly casual ambience is the perfect complement to the more formal dining room. <br /><br />The private dining rooms offer banquet facilities for business groups with free wi-fi, as well as social events such as weddings, birthdays, and rehersal dinners. The kitchen offers a menu borrowed from French country style recipes that are classical yet light in calories. Suberbly rich desserts include a delectable soufflé and signature crème brulée. <br />

"We were there on a Monday just before leaving town. The food was very good and the reasonably priced. Had the chicken piccata, which was excellent and my husband loved the soup. Wait staff was courteous and attentive."

MarketBar is San Francisco's answer to Grand Central Station but on the water in the restored landmark Ferry Building. The casual menu offers many of the organic ingredients sold in the thrice-weekly farmer's market as well as the shops filling the interior of the building. Full Bar, creative wine list and seasonal market driven menu attracts a cross section of the city's diners to its handsome dining room, comfortable bar and spectacular outdoor sidewalk terrace. <br /><br />**We do not take reservations for the patio. We seat only complete parties on a first come first serve basis.

"This was a cute place on the wharf and my french toast was great; but their version of smoked salmon/bagel (although beautiful on the plate) was just okay. The portions were small (for a hungry person) so we ended up ordering another dish to complete breakfast. Sitting outside on a gorgeous SF day however...that was great!"

Our Fisherman's Wharf seafood restaurant is steeped in a family tradition of quality and service. Still family owned and operated, Scoma’s opened in 1965, when brothers Al and Joe Scoma took over a six table coffee shop serving fishermen on the wharf. Using their mother’s recipe collection, the Scoma brothers' humble café evolved over the years becoming the quintessential San Francisco dining destination it is today.

"This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. Although a little hard to find if you are walking, it was worth the search. The "Catch of the Day" which was salmon in a saffron risotto was beautifully plated; they had a twist on their caesar dressing (which was great!); and the cioppino was hearty and delicious. Our waiter Chris was fantastic. Loved it!"

Our restaurant menus and décor are inspired by the culinary spoils of the Pacific Northwest, and we take great pride in working with our local farmers and producers to ensure quality and dependability. Our lounge has become a neighbourhood favourite for happy hour or pre-theater drinks and bites. Our team of mixologists create one-of-a-kind specialty and classic cocktails to pair with our small plate offerings.

The food at Wild Ginger spans the Pacific Rim from China to Indonesia. We pride ourselves on offering traditional dishes from these distinctive regions and insist on house-made ingredients. Chefs make spicy chili sambals, fresh coconut milk, delicate egg noodles, and our pungent oyster sauce all from scratch. To achieve the sublime flavors of the East, there is no substitute for the time-honored customs of these rich and ancient cultures.<br />*reservations for parties of 7 or more, please give us a call at 206-623-4450.

"I visited Wild Ginger because I love the influence of Vietnamese spices and cooking. I ordered four of the satays, thinking they were small, appetizer sized "small plates". They were huge! Considering I had also ordered the sea bass lettuce wraps (which was really, really good...) it was more food than I really needed. Really enjoyed this restaurant."
