Angler San Francisco
Mains are all over salted.
Easily the BEST restaurant for the price!
AMAZING! Now my new fav place
Exceptional experience. Probably the best swordfish I have had in my life.
Really expensive for ok food.
We had a great experience at Angler. Had read reviews before hand so we knew that it would be expensive and were weary of the service. We ended up with great service and had some amazing dishes. I particularly enjoyed the big eye tuna tartare and amberjack in shiso. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very welcoming and impeccably designed. My son said it was the best restaurant he had ever been to.
Pricing was exorbitantly high. $1000 crab, $17 cocktails, $14 ice cream. Not a good choice for an ordinary meal with friends. Servers polite but fussy and humorless. Would have much more fun if wait staff were more friendly and open. Last point, the soundtrack was loud 80s music which didn't match the stuffiness of the servers.
Our waiter was amazing. He was great in every aspect of his job from his knowledge of the food and the wine to even the florist arrangements. It was s very great dining experience.
Everything was spectacular except the noise level is too high! Can't you turn down the music??
The service was exceptional and the food was creative and delicious. I would highly recommend for a special occasion.
Chicken was still raw. Sole and sea bass fillet were average. Desserts were the best part of our meal. Not worth our $600 bill for a party of 3 adults and 1 child....but at least I finally gave it a try.
Other than the two imbeciles at the table next to us yelling over their FaceTime calls over the course of the entire lunch, everything else was awesome!
Service was great! Wine list fabulous! Food was disappointing.
Sommelier and waiter were outstanding and contributed to the overall experience!
Phenomenal food and flavors-wine selection was superb-casual and playful tho attention to food superb-it is subtle
This is a great place for a high-end seafood dinner. We booked through OT and were seated in the back of the 2nd dining room and were mostly ignored a good part of the evening. The food is great. If you don't mind spending $150. a person including a cocktail, this is a good choice.
Food was very good but overpriced. Buns that you had to pay $10 for were not that tasty even though came with some "special" butter. If you are on an expense account, go here, if not find something just as good and far less expensive!
Small menu . Small portion. Over price! Food was not great! Over all I won’t go back...
Beautiful setting, great service and amazing food! And one of the best wine lists I’ve ever seen
The location and ambience were lovely, but that's where it ends. The food is ridiculously priced for what you get, service is pretentious and over eager to clear plates despite the restaurant being 2/3 empty (not like they needed the table). Felt rushed and annoyed with servers. The menu choices were scant. Cocktails were good, though. Would prefer a busy burrito joint (or pretty much anything else) to what they did to this restaurant space. Trying too hard sums it up. Don't go!
Excellent dinner at Angler SF. The experience was wonderful and it all comes down to the attention to detail in every phase of the meal and restaurant. The food was wonderful - highly recommend the tuna with jelly from the raw menu and the swordfish (if it's available). Great cocktails and wine list, too. We were lucky enough to be seated at the window facing the bay bridge, can't beat that view! Thank you, Angler for a great birthday dinner.
Our second visit to Angler in a month and we loved the fact the menu changes daily so we had an entirely different menu to chose and order from. Huge fan this doesn’t feel like a stuffy Michelin star restaurant (although the latter is true 🙌🏻) it is casual, making you feel relaxed versus needing to be buttoned up. The food and service are exceptional. We will be back for many reasons but specifically food and the ever changing menu!
We loved the food and experience of Angler. It was a wonderful dinner. The sommelier, in particular, was outstanding. One or two things were so overpriced that it deserved some kind of commentary, but everything else was expensive but in a way that's expected and deserved for a Michelin-starred restaurant. Overall, we will certainly return in the future when friends visit or for special occasions.
Loved, loved, LOVED our experience at Angler recently. We are not from the Bay Area, but recently heard chef Josh Skenes interviewed on a podcast, and wanted to check out this restaurant. Loved the whole concept of Angler, and the values that he holds with regard to food. The provenance of the ingredients, and the time-tested techniques resulted in amazing food on the plates...and we had many plates. We started with the bivalves (California Gold) - so fresh, perfect brininess, with balanced, bright acidity from the mignonette and Angler sauce. Next were the lettuces with herbs - perfect lettuce leaves, fresh herbs and amazingly balanced dressing. The salt level in the dressing matched the brininess of the bivalves. Next up was the hen-of-the-woods mushroom and the eggplant terrine. Loved both, but my preference was for the mushroom, which absorbed the smokiness of the wood fire, which was perfectly complimented by the chili sauce. I can't eat eggplant without comparing it to my favorite eggplant dish (baba ganoush) - Angler's eggplant had lovely smokiness, and the basil made it wonderfully distinctive. We enjoyed a few scallops, then finished with the coconut sorbet, which was a lovely not-too-sweet finish. There is nothing not to love about Angler - diners can enjoy world-class food here without paying $300+/person for a high-end tasting menu. I live in the Midwest, and would like to propose a new concept for Skenes - "Wrangler." Anything you bring to Ohio, I will patronize regularly! (Final note: the staff was utterly professional. They had just the right rhythm of checking in on our table.
Half hour waiting over our booking time. Service so slow! Very limited food choice. Extremely expensive. Not recommended!
Great decor. Excellent service. Radicchio salad was a standout.
Dessert and drinks were the star
Anniversary, been more than a few times, terrible host and service. We never write or complain but there are much better Michelin restaurants in SF
Honestly, this was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. My only regret is that it was lunch time and we didn’t have more time to linger. We sat outside on a beautiful fall day. The food was cooked perfectly, the staff was great, it was all around lovely. It is very expensive but perfect for special occasions.
Lovely meal and fabulous wait staff. The food was delicious and was beautifully presented.
Honestly, we went to Angler when it opened last year and the experience was much better. The food was good, but it seems like since they gained a Michelin Star they have stopped trying a little bit. I will still come back, but I don’t know if I will rave about this restaurant like I once did.
Very expensive, but excellent preparations and dishes.
I chose Angler to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The waiter did not offer anything for her birthday & as we were leaving we were passed by another table being brought dessert with birthday candle!!! The restaurant’s staff are seemingly busy, swirling around the restaurant as if it were on fire yet the place was half full with large obnoxious group next door. Our waiter wasn’t knowledgeable nor did he appear very interested in being there. Th sommelier was just slightly more informed too bad the wine we selected was out—no compensation offered or given. The 80’s music comes across as horribly incongruous with the attempted ambiance especially given the astronomical prices. I will not recommend to friends, family or business associates.
Great service, good food, very loud with 80s rock. Enjoyed the sunset across the water.
Food is fresh and tasty but never ending 80´s playlist is too overwhelming, taking away from the customer experience
Unbelievable swordfish. Menu a bit odd with some portions large enough for two or three, others more appropriate for one. Hard to order just the right amount. Would live to have tasted the crab but had to order a whole plate sized one close to a hundred bucks so we passed....but that swordfish was unforgetable
Amazing... been a few times and will always go back when im in the area to see what is new. Service is casual but refined. Food is simply amazing! you dont get 3 stars for phoning it in.
This restaurant is a total disappointment. The best thing it has going for it is the view. The food is ridiculously overpriced ($1250 for crab, $250 for steak and $65 for an under-cooked whole chicken), they were playing loud 80's music all night (Wednesday night) that did not match the ambiance and the wait staff was trying so hard to be attentive that it was more of an annoyance than helpful. I would not recommend this place to anyone that I truly want to enjoy good food and a nice evening. SF has so many delicious restaurants that are pricey but worth it, this is NOT one of them. Save your money and go somewhere that is more authentic, down to earth, tasty and fun.
Except for the wait for half hour wait table with a reservation , it was a great experience
OMG, Angler is beyond description...the food, the view, the heated toilet seats, the service (not necessarily in that order!)...everything was superior! A must for anyone visiting or living in San Francisco!
