Go there for the view of San Francisco. They have a nice wine selection and good food. I had the scallops with garlic and shiitake mushrooms. Fresh and tasty. A bit pricey and the place could use some decoration - it's very 90 style. Actually...More

As others have raved about, the view is worth the cost of admission. I last went to The Spinnaker about 25 years ago, and it is much like I remember it, but a little more "tired". I'm not sure if much has been updated in...More

We were two couples and we all ordered either New England or Manhattan Chowder; then salad and a seafood main course. Both types of chowder were quite good and enjoyable. Everything after was a disaster. My advice - go there for the chowder and the...More

We have eaten here several times over the years and it never changes. The food is overpriced and mediocre - same old menu. The service is perfunctory. The reason we return is the magnificent view of the bay, downtown San Francisco and Larkspur. We could...More

We ended up in here whilst looking for a nice place to sit and share some bottles of wine. It was quite empty when we arrived but the view was great and the drink selection was good. Wine was decent and well priced.

Sorry, you would have to call the restaurant directly with that question since my husband, our friends and I were only diners.
Could you please tell me how far in advance can we book a table for lunch - we are coming in October of this year? Many thanks
