People flock to Ghirardelli Square for chocolate and ice cream, and pass right by this wonderful dining spot, not knowing what they're missing. Too bad for them...but good for diners like us, who like keeping it a secret as much as possible. The location of McCormick and Schmick's makes it rather crowded and expensive - that's a fact. If you... More

Maybe we were just unlucky but this was the poorest meal we had in San Francisco. Service was awful. Our waiter forgot to submit our order to the kitchen which meant that we waited 50 minutes and then instead of our starters the main courses arrived. These were sent back and, as it became clear later, where left on a... More

The food was very well presented and the view is absolutely amazing. It is worth going there, but advised to make reservations first.

Was here for a work function. We had a private room in the back part of the space. Service, food and drinks and view were top notch.

This is a beautiful restaurant, overlooking San Francisco Bay. We had very good service, however, the food was only mediocre, but with fine dining prices...a real disappointment.

Great view, big windows and comfortable sitting. The food is average, the drinks weak and the prices high. The service is arrogant and unfriendly. However, I go there with my lady friends when we visit San Francisco, around 3:00 p.m. The restaurant is almost empty, but getting the table of our choice is never without an argument. Huge mistake to... More

This restaurant is in a fun location at Ghirardelli Square and a short walk from Fisherman's Wharf, the Maritime Museum ships, and the end of the Hyde St Cable Car Line. Unobstructed views of the bay, including Alcatraz and Angel Island are worth the visit. A good menu specializing in seafood dishes, but with a nice selection of steaks. Our... More

I was led to believe this was one of the more distinguished places to dine out at but quite frankly I wasn't impressed. Just not memorable at all.

Good tastes- great views, with family trying to make the best of an unexpected trip. Well, this helped lift the spirits. I had a seared rare Ahi sandwich that was memorable. It was not on the menu, but I had remembered having one at McC' and Sm's in Seattle a few years ago. I thought it was the best Club... More

A lot of you are aware that Lynette and I love Paris, the City of Light. In Paris there are about 13,000 restaurants, most of which are almost great restaurants. The daughter of one our Paris friends had just finished college in Illinois. She wanted to see as much of the US and California as possible with her limited time.... More
