Would recommend if you want a long evening meal and don't mind spending hundreds of dollars. An experience more than just grabbing a bite.
Thought the menu items were too limited and the Sablefish dish I had was very mediocre,
Excellent seafood and outstanding service . The food was amazing.
Wonderful special occasion destination! Our server, Rodrigo, was super knowledgable and kind. Happy we chose this place to celebrate our anniversary. Seafood was fresh and flavors were inventive and delicious!
We have been going to farallón every time we visit San Francisco and as always it was very good!
The restaurant is overpriced for the food they serve. Food was good but they serve it as a 3 and 4 course prefixe meal. No ala carte option for cooked food. Ala carte is served at the lounge only and only raw food is served. I spent 350 for 3 people for a mandatory 3 course meal. I was not prepared to spend that much for and appetizer entree and dessert. When I reserved there was no indication about the 3 course as the only option. Very disappointed.
Disaster. No one came to greet us we finally had to flag down a manager to get served. This was followed by a long wait for food. I must say course one was delicious. When our meals finally came I had to send my inedible risotto back and again had to glad someone down to tell them how inedible my food was as no one came to check on our meal. By then my husband had finished his dinner. They proceeded to bring the bill telling us the risotto was taken off and they apologize. I left my own birthday dinner without eating dinner.
Superb service— very attentive. Ambiance is very nice, perfect for date night. We chose the ninety dollar three course dinner and selected: pork belly/sablefish/apple fritters and abalone bisque/filet mignon/pumpkin panna cotta. Everything was delicate and delicious. We were very happy with our choices.
Good! Was dying to have the Cioppino but they rotate their menu so got to try something new. Definitely stick with the seafood options here.
Great spot but decor is tired and needs a refresh and a very long and successful run.
Service and food was excellent. I will be back! It’s great for a special occasion.
Fabulous special birthday dinner. Less than 5 stars were for 2 reasons: 1) Coffee didn't come with dessert. Think they forgot and brought it after we were finished. Coffee was delicious though. 2) Restaurant is pricey, but, on the other hand, you get wonderfully prepared food that you can't find elsewhere.
Great location for a wonderful dinner before seeing a play at SFPlayhouse! Food was delicious, and service was excellent. We had white sable and the beef entrees, spaghetti first course and s'more for dessert-all excellent.
Lovely dinner! The waitress forgot to bring out a special dessert for my Wife’s birthday. She emailed me to apologized. That’s a first!
We had a great time! Thank you for helping make my day special!!!
Was a very enjoyable experience!!!
If you're looking for seafood in San Fran - Farallon is a must.
We were here for a healthcare conference and wanted to have a great meal. We were very satisfied with our choice of Farallon. The food, ambience, service- everything was great.
The atmosphere was so good. But a littler bit noisy.
Stuffs was so kindly.
It’s a beautiful restaurant. The food was ok but not fabulous but the service ambience and experience was great.
When entering the restaurant we were greeted quickly and brought right to out table by the friendly
personable hostess. The waitperson was right there to take our drink order. The Maritinis were excellent and the food was tasty and served delightfully. This is our second visit to Farallon
and we have always been pleased with the menu and the food. We will go there again!
Perfect evening and enjoyed being spoiled with Michael’s outstanding service. See you again soon!
The restaurant is a good one but I can't give a 5-star rating because it is expensive for what you pay. I really like the ambiance. Great place to have a conversation, business meeting, romantic place...
Always excellent from beginning to end!
This place is becoming dated and unimaginative with regard to its food. We dined on s Saturday night and all that was offered was a tasing menu. The food was good but largely forgettable and portions were small.
Tim Tran was our server and he was exceptional; friendly, knowledgeable, great resource to navigate extreme food allergies, and very courteous and professional. We returned to celebrate our 15 th wedding anniversary after dining here on our honeymoon. It was exactly as we had hoped for and made our celebration very warm and memorable.
Sat by the bar and chatted with the chef - was able to ask lots of questions. Everything was great; this place deserves better recognition.
Waiter did not provide sparkling water we requested, brought plain ice water. When prompted, he corrected the error and provided excellent service thereafter. I gave him a 22% tip, which ($65) was alot for two people.
It was wonderful! The wait staff were all outstanding.
Amazing food in an amazing atmosphere, always excellent. The sommalier helped pick out a fabulous Oregon pinot noir that suited us perfectly and was one of their lower-priced wines. It is an expensive place to eat, but worth it!
Incredible ambiance and unique dishes.
I was there for a business dinner. The staff was very courteous and assisted promptly on all our needs.
Food and wine selection were very good.
Delicious food and good wine menu. The decoration is interesting and fun. Great atmosphere. We had a good time.
I remember Farallon from trips to SF in the 90s, and my recollection was the food and service were top notch and the decor was amazing—blown glass jellyfish lamps, wow! The decor now seems dated, and while the service was excellent the food was just okay and the price high. I wish I would have maintained my fond memories of the place from before and eaten at some place that had kept its edge or was simply more current.
Just plain good food with a very nice, down to earth waiter, in a very nice place. Pretty pricey though
This is a fabulous restaurant in an area where there isn't much aside from the hotel dining venues.
Really excellent meal and service. Highly recommend.
Have not been to Farallon in quite some time, and very glad we returned. It hasn't lost anything; the food was great, service good and everything was in order.
Excellent food, ambiance and service. The trifecta of dining out!
Everyone was very friendly and most helpful. Great place!
