Wow what a cool spot overlooking the bay bridge for dinner. Amazing seafood, great vibe etc

Menu focuses on seafood and small plates. Definitely get a seafood platter -although pricey

First night of a special guest on holiday in San Francisco, not been to the WaterBar before, so decided to give it a go. Firstly, it’s in a great location with fabulous views over the Bay bridge. We shared a whole snapper, and it was excellent. This is a pricey place, but well worth it for that special occasion.

Had super high expectations for this place based on the reviews but we were not impressed. Super noisy, busy, so-so service and food is good but also nothing to write home about. 2 days later we had diner at the Cliff House at the other coast and this once definitely delivered what we were expecting from Waterbar. I wouldn’t come back.

We had our beat meal in San Francisco last night. Not only was the view spectacular, the service was perfect, the wine list, outstanding and absolutely everything we ordered was excellent. I highly recommend it if you do not mind the splurge. Of course, perfection has its price. :)

Had heard about Waterbar for years and finally decided to check it out during our recent trip to San Francisco. I'm not easily impressed, but this place is off the charts incredible...beautiful inside with amazing views of the Bay Bridge, warm personal service and excellent food!! We tried the skate wing which I'd never heard of but was highly recommended by our server. Cooked in garlic...this might be the tastiest piece of seafood that I've ever tasted. Will definitely return to this fabulous restaurant.
