Stopped on visit to Fishermans wharf to have lunch. Food was great, only disappointment was wait staff and when we ordered the 'Lazy Mans Cioppino, they forgot to give the crab meat out of the shell and by the time they had remembered we had finished!

We were walking towards Fishermans Wharf when we walking passed Tarantino's and smelt the most amazing crab. A lady was freshly preparing the crabs outside so we just had to crab one. The clam chowder was delicious and the garlic chips are YUM! The restaurant seemed more pricey but it did have a lovely setting.

Stopped in for a quick lunch. We were happy we chose Tarantino's out of the many options in Fisherman's Warf. I had the fish and chips and my husband had the fish tacos. Food was light, fresh and filling. The price was also great for the amount of food in a lunch potion. Service was a little flippant and impersonal... More

We ate at Tarantino's on a Wednesday evening after the Super Bowl crowds had gone. After looking at menus etc. along the waterfront we made this choice. There were very few people in the restaurant even though we could see that some of the cheaper touristy places across the street were quite busy. I would guess however, that they are... More

We picked out a great table with awesome view of the docks & water, and even saw a seal taking his morning swim!! Owner was very nice and Stephanie, our server, was... More

Great place to chill in the afternoon for a glass of wine and a snack of Dungeness Crab. Good place to people watch, and watch boats in the harbor. Also a very good restaurant for dinner with a good selection of seafood.

Overpriced, bad service, the bathrooms were disgusting and smelled of urine. we never had a refill on our drinks the ENTIRE meal. Really?? The view is amazing however so maybe you are paying the high prices for that. Really underwhelming experience and someone referred us to this place. We won't listen to him again.

Not much to say about this place . Overpriced - sloppy service - clam chowder order - arrives with half the clam down the sides of the sour dough.- here is the bill - don't forget the tip! - next customer please. Goodbye and good riddance. The chowder was nice though.

Smelly carpet. They were "out" of 3 different fish, crab and sparkling water. The place was almost completely empty and the reason is that it has bad food and is out of date.
