Busy place ! Checked it out as we were wandering through the market, and came back for drinks & oysters later that night! Awesome patio on the back deck, right on the harbour, friendly staff & great selection of oysters!

I love, love this place, and my trip to SF wouldn't be complete without their raw oysters and a cold bottle of white wine. The first time I was here, I thought their oysters were the best I'd ever had (although since then, the honor...More

First lunch in SF...food was very good, but felt very rushed. Food came out too fast...barely had a chance to enjoy the experience. But the Ferry Building was worth going to...lovely location & experience

We decided to try this out for lunch during our visit. There was a wait, but we were seated after 15 minutes or so. The margaritas were unusual, but quite tasty. I had the chowder, which was good (different, but good). My husband enjoyed his...More

If you like oysters, you have to try this place! Great setting and customer service. Not cheap but what is in San Francisco? The Oysters Rockefeller were the best I've had to date, and I've had a lot! The other menu items won't disappoint either.

This restaurant is located in Embarcadero area and discovering all dining options is already worth visiting. The restaurant is quite busy, one hour line. The sea food is excellent, oysters and sea food rustic soup were excellent. The view to the ocean was beautiful. No...More

This is a prime location in the Ferry Building, and be prepared to wait in a long line for a table. You can buy oysters to go (our route) but be warned - without 24-hour advance notice, the restaurant will only sell you 2 dozen...More
