    The ceviche tasting was excellent! The empanada sampler completed the perfect weekend lunch on the outdoor patio. Try the mango picoso, a little bit of heat contrasts mango nicely.

    Delicious scrumptious Peruvian food with a decent view of the pier. Had the quinoa bowl and added chicken, absolutely delicious. Only unfortunate thing is the view is covered by ferries

    As good as the Lima original! Excellent ceviches, tiraditos but also meat dishes. Not to mention cocktails, pisco sour amongst many others!

    There are many wonderful choices on La Mar’s brunch menu, which augments its Peruvian cuisine with Spanish, Japanese, & Italian influences. Still, starting your brunch with cocktails is a no-brainer. Read more

    The tiradito nikkei is fantastic! My husband and I could eat it all night long! The choco-maracuyo is aMAZing! The chocolate balances out the tartness of the passion fruit.

    All three of the ceviche we tried were excellent. One of the few places I’ve found in SF with great Pisco Sours.

    Our office Christmas party here and enjoyed their fresh, beautiful food of a incredible high standard. Service came on a little strong with the up-selling however.

    This restaurant is perfect! Cuisine, service, spacious interior... And their new option of food pre-ordering and table booking via the Allset app is great – you are served at once, no wait!

    It's Dine About week in San Francisco and we decided to try La Mar. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we can't have ceviche today :( We did try the amazing empanadas and veggie options. Delicious!

    Great place, awesome food and good ambience. Didn't enjoy the cocktails so much but great food very much makes up for it. Quinoa Chaufa was one of the best quinoa dishes I have had.

    Ceviche is from Peru, and it’s delicious. Drowned in citrus, raw seafood is combined with other fresh ingredients. There is a fun bar on the Embarcadero side, if you want to just sip some wine.

    The service here was really good, and the food here was quite delicious, I had the calamari, the ceviche, and the Rice paper drink. It was really pricey, but the proportioning was quite fair.

    Cebiche is phenomenal. Large sashimi-like pieces. Pisco sour is quite a tasty cocktail. Plancha de mariscos has excellent smoky char to it.

    Go for happy hour for half off pisco cocktails. It's a cebicheria, so duh, get the ceviche! There's a sampler platter of 4 different ceviches if you have a hard time deciding.

    Original Ceviche, Dungeness Crab on Purple Potato, and Lomo (grilled tenderloin) were all excellent!!! Get a table outside by the water. Will not disappoint!!!

    Without a doubt one of the best restaurants SF has to offer! Service was attentive, views are gorgeous and ceviches are to die for! I'm salivating at the mere thought!

    Ceviche is delicious (big fat chunks of fish, different flavors like sweet potato & corn nuts.) Prickly pear Margarita was really good but for $13 it was awfully a small glass.

    Everything is delicious down to the plantain chips they bring to every table (heads up that they charge for this at happy hour though)

    Try the "Nikei," with tuna, Japanese cucumber, daikon, nori, & tamarind, or even the "classic," which is marinated in a "tiger's milk" of ridiculously hot peppers. Read more

    A total classic. First-timers, go samplers: ceviche sampler plus empanada sampler makes a great meal for two -- and heck, throw in a rollito, too.

    Peruvian food by the bay. Can't go wrong really. Quite authentic even though not exactly the same as its original brother in Lima.
