Franciscan Crab Restaurant
Awesome service with a great view of the bay. Excellent seafood. I had a half dozen oysters and the seafood cioppino.
Food was horrible, although the service was great! It’s no where near comparison to dead fish … the crab isn’t fresh at all!! Would not eat here again
Food was delicious. Server was very attentive. Would go back
I was kinda nervous about the food & service after reading some of the reviews, but the evening turned out very nice. Food was good, service was really good & the view was awesome!
Daughter’s 28th Birthday
Gorgeous views , not typical food or noisy Wharf fare
Seafood skillet a Must !
Huge, share !
Food and ambiance unequaled. The vanilla ice cream custard dessert was amazing
Consistently good in the skillet roasted seafood. The background music was annoyingly intrusive.
We always know we are going to have an amazing meal with amazing food and great service.
The crab was great. My only issue was that all the food came out at the same time. Appetizers and Entrees. So the appetizers sat and got cold. Cold fondue is not fun.
The food is good; servings are pretty big. I would come back again.
Franciscan is awesome I would highly recommend it it's my favorite restaurant in Fisherman's Wharf especially if you're a fan of crab
The platter with Crab and mussels excellent!!!
Recommend this restaurant
Food was good but very expressive. Captain Morgan and coke $15
Amazing view & delicious food! Service was slow but they were so busy so it was understandable & the staff was very nice. The crab fondue was the BEST!!!
It was wonderful
Every table has a view of the Bay. Great place to dine with friends and family.
Very nice place overlooking the SF Bay Area. Service was great. Pan seared fish dishes were delicious. Starter salads were ok. Chocolate mousse was a nice finish.
Wonderful place for crab feasting with romantic views and excellent service. Very hard to hear the servers with all of the loud noises, but worth it.
The service is never very good. They didn’t check how we were doing, and when I asked to speak with my waiter he never came. I wanted to let him know I ordered something different than what he brought.
The crab cocktail appetizer is a rip-off, it’s mostly lettuce in a champagne glass with a little crab on top.
Excellent view, super nice staff. Very pleasant experience
Excellent food. Creative people in the kitchen are making unique and delicious entrees! My family is ready to go back!
We visit the Franciscan Crab every time we’re in San Francisco. The food and the service is always excellent. As always, thank you for a beautiful time. We’ll be back.
Really great service here, if you’re thinking about going, do it
This is my post COVID review. This was always my go to at Fisherman's Wharf because I don't like being on the dock. The food was always good view amazing and service great. I understand that restaurants are struggling with staffing. The food is not what it was the menu has been greatly reduce (and I get that too). Service was poor (we still tip 15%) i get their trying. Lots of new staff. Our waiter was not the friendliest (she probably should do another profession). Ask for tabasco never got it. Order wine they brought the carafe no wine glass I could go on. This restaurant is not cheap. I am having faith they will improve I will try again in a few months and hopefully this icon go back to being what it was. All the PPP money they should upgraded carpet and polished the elevators it needs a touch up. Fisherman's Wharf needs to be clean up. Again I am trying to be kind and hoping for the best for these people.
The reservation was not
Attention to customers reason
They asked to wait for at least an hour
This time was extremely noise
Food last time we were there we
This time after COVID we do not
Know we left
The restaurant is beautiful and has huge windows looking out at the bay. View from our seat was fabulous. The way they had the rows of seats situated made it such that you could get a decent view from almost every table. Definitely would recommend making reservations as it was very busy and in a very touristy area of town. Food was pretty good, we had the Dungeness crab. Prices were high as expected but not unreasonably
This used to be our go to place when going into the city. We noticed in the spring of 2019 when we ate there, the restaurant looked really run down, dirty and the crab had the “ammonia” taste to it, meaning it was old not fresh. They replaced it and the new crab was better. We went again after Covid, in July 2021. It was very busy. We made reservations so we were seated right away. We noticed how filthy the restaurant was, especially when we visited the bathrooms. Absolutely disgusting! It took about 10 minutes for the waiter. No big deal, they were busy. We ordered and the food came pretty quick. I noticed some tables had a plate of bread and butter so I asked. The waiter said it was $1.79 for the bread. Ok. Ordered the bread. My husband ordered the half crab and mussels. He said the mussels were good but the crab had that ammonia taste. I tasted it and it was foul, I had to spit it out. I ordered my usual, the crab fettuccine Alfredo and it was just ok this time. It was more bland than usual and the pasta didn’t have that fresh, buttery taste it used to. Also the bread we ordered was cold, hard and chewy. Yikes. My husband did not eat his meal besides the 3-4 mussels and the one small crab leg he first had that tasted bad. His appetite was over after that taste. The waiter did notice and asked and he took that charge off the bill. The staff are all nice and I feel bad giving a bad review but the food and dirtiness of this place is terrible, especially for how expensive it is. We will now be finding a new go to restaurant.
The food was delicious, and the view was spectacular. Unfortunately, your wait staff didn't measure up and were an obvious detraction from the overall experience. It was mildly annoying when the waitress didn't bring me shell crackers for my crab legs. It took me a while to flag down another person who furnished me with the necessary utensils to eat the meal I'd ordered. But later, when the waitress cleared my dirty dish and presented that to the next table of diners--well, just be thankful the board of health wasn't nearby.
On vacation and wanted to take the family out for seafood, three adults and two small children. Service was prompt and food was delicious. Great view of the bay, enjoyed the binoculars at the table and kids had a great time. Server was excellent.
I would have given it higher bit the staff with the exception of the host seemed like they were rushing us through the meal. From the time we were seated to done and leaving was 40 minutes.
Prompt, professional, delicious even with a very busy evening.
Classic SF waterfront views of the Bay make this place a wonderful lunch spot— especially with an elderly SF friend who had never been there. She loved her muscles and I loved my Crab Louie. The bread and butter there is always yummy! The menu under their Covid-comeback is much smaller than usual without any combo specials. Darn!
We were there for Father’s Day and loved it - decided to treat my cousin visiting from Chicago that loves crab and it wasn’t the same - the skillet was not hot as before and clam bowl chowder was just ok - we ordered exact same meal but, wasn’t as good as before- I still would still recommend this restaurant but, just a suggestion
Great waterfront restaurant. Crab was fantastic - a must try
My wife finished her medical elective rotation
Birthday celebration. If party is more than 4 you can’t sit at the window for the view. Wish that would have been advertised
Great service, food and ambience. Cannot wait to return.
Overall service, drinks and food were very good. Restrooms need way more attention, they were very dirty.
What a fun place! Can't wait to go back again! Always outstanding.
