A great outdoor spot, good food, nice casual and great service
We lucked out with great weather and the staff did everything they could to make it a nice time for us.
It was wonderful. We got a great table outside. The food was excellent and the service was great. All in all a very nice experience!
I have been frequenting pier 23 for at least 25 years, and all time favorite spot for View food friendly service. This is the first time I’ve been disappointed because they changed the worlds greatest crab sandwich that I always ordered. The bread was so thick, more than an inch on each side of the sandwich (had to disassemble to eat), much less crab in between, totally different flavored sauce, so disappointing! Service and View were great as always! Please bring back the former crab sandwich!
Great waiter, delicious bloody mary's, nice seafood salad. Love looking at the bay, a bit chilly day though so not as warm and cozy as I like but all in all a fun time.
Great service. Food was great. Wonderful leisurely lunch with old friends. Wasn’t rushed and wasn’t interrupted- very good experience.
Perfect day out in SF on the Bay with family we haven't been able to see for over a year. Everyone at Pier 23 were fabulous and the food and ambiance were amazing!
Food was very expensive and below average taste. Outside dinning area was poor with plastic tables and chairs, windy and cold. You had to get your own water. I requested a table by the water and they did not even acknowledge my request. $100.00 for tacos and a salad. I would have been happier at a fast food place.
Pier 23 is always a fantastic experience and this did not disappoint. Kudos to the staff for keeping up a positive attitude and excellent service in these challenging times. Te outside area on the Bay was beautiful, and plenty warm in spite of the wind. Pier 23 is a true San Francisco institiution!
I love this place. The ambiance and location are so perfect.
Everyone is usually so nice. This time though, our server was a tiny bit snippy. When my sister asked for something the waiter said, 'Can you wait until i set this stuff down?'. Wow.
My ceviche was not super flavorful. I had wanted to order that for some time but I was underwhelmed. Next time will stick to my usual faves.
I recommend this place and will definitely be back. Thank you.
I love the food, service and views of Pier 23. It’s one of my favorite restaurants! And I felt safe. Tables were spaced out properly!
We visited this past weekend and we sat out in back. I had the crab cocktail, which was very good, they gave a good portion of crab, not like some places where they give you more lettuce then crab. My husband and the crab and shrimp sandwich on grilled sourdough which was amazing. I definitely recommend going and I am sure everything on their menu is delicious.
We went for my sons birthday. It was a beautiful day, great light, causal environment and we soaked in the view.
The food was nothing spectacular unfortunately. My husband and I each got the crab/lobster sandwich and at $21 a pop I expected more. It was mainly shrimp. And those tasted just de-thawed.
I loved the service and staff However and would go back for them and the scenery alone!!!
Great place for families and the staff was helpful
Birthday celebration weekend with relatives.
We can’t wait until Live Music starts back up‼️
Fun in the Sun! Great views from the pier and fantastic food & service!
Sure was nice to have a perfect lunch at Pier 23 with my sisters! Great weather, amazing views, delicious food, great service, and excellent adherence to Covid safety protocols. Cannot wait to go back!
The food and service were excellent. A great San Francisco destination to enjoy with friends or family. Plus they are very dog friendly not to mention a fantastic view of the Bay.
Such a great place to have a fine meal in the most beautiful city in California.
Service was not rushed and the food was delicious.
Great weather and friendly, cautious staff. Food was quite good. View was amazing!
Stopped for lunch while on vacation and waiting for Alcatraz tour with kids. Nice outdoor area on the water. Food was quite good. Service a little harried but not bad.
I love this place! Great location, friendly staff and reasonable prices
a great waterfront dive bar cafe. food is good enough. everything else about ot is pretty much perfect.
The servers were very helpful and let our late lunch group enjoy our visit without pressing us to move along as we were obviously enjoying a reunion. A lovely sunny day makes this a perfect outdoor dining spot.
My family took my mother here for a late lunch early dinner for her birthday. Given the current pandemic she really wanted to get out of the house & see the ocean. After a day of walking around the pier & our usual sight seeing points we came here. The outdoor seating on the patio overlooked the water and was great given the weather that day. Great views, and a relaxing environment with such a nice hostess who helped us. The liquor and beer selections were amazing, and my parents thoroughly enjoyed their “sea breeze” cocktail. My family loved their meals but I only had a side of garlic fries since I wasn’t very hungry. Overall great place & will be back.
Pier 23 was excellent - the food, the service, the atmosphere & all the staff are awesome. Especially during a pandemic, the accommodations they have adapted are exemplary - what a wonderful experience. Thank You!!
Very friendly and accommodating on the phone, on arrival and during our meal.
Fun place but service is way too slow, food is overpriced for quality and portion.
Hello Kellie, Thank you for bringing your group in and taking the time to let us know about your experience. I would love the opportunity to discuss with you over phone or email what we can do better. Specifically where we let you down in terms of food and expedience of service. Drop me a line (tony@pier23cafe.C0M) or (415) 362-5125 and ask for Tony.
We always eat lunch here when we come to the city. Great food and service
We made reservations but they reserved the table closest to the kitchen. It appeared that walkins had better seating than we did.
Thank you for informing us of your experience today. I see your reservation was made at 11:22am this morning for 11:45am. It is difficult to guarantee specific seating. Weather can be limiting and only certain tables can fit a high chair. We had 20 minutes to find a table amongst other reservations. Only a few were available. Still, it is unacceptable to have let you down. I will discuss solutions with my staff. I invite you to join us again. Contact me and I will save you a great table.
Great Food! Look all the food. Very fresh Dungeness Crab, fish and chip, chicken wing and waffle, chowder soup, bake broccoli and cauliflower. All are delicious!
Not as good as it used to be. Fish and chips was undercooked, had to send it back. Clam chowder was bland. Shrimp and crab sandwich was good, but the salad with it was hard to eat.
We wanted to like this place...the service was good, however the restaurant was very hot inside, and the food was bland. My wife and I both had the fish and chips, and I had a bowl of clam chowder. The chowder was blah...no seasoning whatsoever...a little salt and pepper would have helped but there was none on the table. It literally had one potato in it. The garlic fries were okay, but under seasoned, the fish was not done in the middle and was just bland...put some salt or seasoning in your batter. My wife had the espresso ice cream for dessert and loved it. That said they got us in quick and the service was good. The food was not worth the cost sadly.
Good food, very casual. Most of the seating is under a tent. Good value if you are somewhat on a budget. Caution, their shirts they wear show naked women's back side...if you bring the kids.
Casual fun spot. Not sure it would make it if you removed it from the waterfront. Food and beverage is just average. Would go here more if they put a little more effort into what they are doing.
We loved eating on the water, enjoyed the chowder, salad and sausage. The best part was the live music. Jinx Jones was playing the night we were there, great rockabilly music in the bar, and we could easily hear him while we were sitting out on the dock.
Fantastic mussels and clams made perfectly with very interesting herbs and spices. Delicious chared bread. Awesome service great cocktails. And is the Irish say great craic!! Well done.
Service depends on the server. So one time a server is great, the second time not so good
Music was great as was the service. The crab quesadilla didn't have any crab to speak of in it, but all the other dishes were spot on!
William, Thanks for the nice review, I will pass your commendation along to Sean, your server. I am disappointed to hear the crab quesadilla wasn't what you were expecting. I will take a look at it with the culinary team today. Let me know when you plan to return, and we will have it tasting delicious for you!
