    This old-school style of upscale seafood restaurant is on the pricey side, but there's no denying the deliciousness of their food. Definitely don't miss the Venison Tartare starter. WinstonWanders.com

    Very good experience. The platter for appetizer was really good, loved the crab. The Halibut was ok but the Trout was outstanding. Side lobster dont worth it. Recommend Local Chardonnay.

    You can make a meal of the bar bites, starting with delicious $6 sliders. and Come back next time when you have time and budget for the full menu treatment. An experience not to be missed! !

    Very uppity receptionists but great food and service from the waiters. The halibut and maine lobster was delicious. Overall, ok experience since the receptionists ruined our happy mood.

    Happy hour each day from 4:30 until 6pm is great. And it's not too crowded, so you can pick the best tables.

    Great staff. Despite the fish-centric nature of the restaurant, they were very accommodating of my vegan wishes, so don't hesitate to ask for something off menu

    Oysters were to die for as well as all the desserts. Appetisers and mains were nice but not mind blowing, which is what I would expect for the price. Friendly service but food was a little slow.

    Happy hour is great, 4:30-7 $6 drinks and appetizers. The sliders are the best deal and check in for a free glass if champagne!

    Seeing the inside of Farallon is worth going for alone, but if you like seafood, put this on your must-do list. They also have a great happy hour!

    High end, good food but there are many better upscale options in SF. Much prefer Boulevard or Benu.

    Just show, no quality. Platters tasted more like water than seafood. Entrees were very poor, salmon definitively not fresh. If you are a real seafood lover go to Pier Market at Pier39 or elsewhere.
