Great View - That's the only good news

It was a hot night and we thought a dinner on the patio overlooking the harbor would be great. Well, the view was great. That's the good news. The food was pricey and when it was delivered the presentation was horrible. The salad looked a few days old and very poorly prepared. The cook (can't call him/her a chef) needs to learn that presentation is half the battle if you want people to enjoy the meal. The calamari wa... view more

Average restaurant but great early bird specials

I've been going to this restaurant for years, well before it moved from its Oakland location into Alameda. New ownership took over several years ago and the change was noticeable. Service has spiraled downward. The wait staff is often very slow, it's rare they come back to check on you. They are also generally irritable and sometimes downright rude. There is only one waiter that I really like because he's friendly an... view more

OK Food, but Stole My Cane

I eat at Pier 29 occasionally, because it is a favorite of a friend. The food is OK, I'd say a little more expensive than the quality calls for. portions are fine, temperature of food is also OK. \r I live a few blocks away and sometimes use a cane to walk. I don't always need it, so sometimes I tend to forget it. We were eating outside one time several months ago and I left my cane leaning against the railing next t... view more

Avoid Pier 29 in Alameda

Was looking for somewhere close to take my daughter for her 19th birthday. Read some recent reviews and all was good., should have read more! I had made a reservation for a window seat and it was confirmed we would have one. Got there and the lady at the desk asked us to wait then a gentleman came over. Thought he would be taking us to our table however he took us outside to the patio. Seating on the patio was steel ... view more

Good food and outstanding service!

I was hesitant to try this restaurant after reading the other reviews, but it was the most convenient location for a group of us to meet. I couldn't disagree more with the reviews that said the service was bad. In fact, we marveled at how incredibly attentive the wait and bus staff were. Our beverages were barely half empty before someone would magically appear and do a quick refill. The service reminded me of that y... view more

Saturday night was a great night to celebrate our anniversary!

Tonight we celebrated our anniversary at Pier 29 in Alameda, CA. Even after reading the reviews listed on line...we still chose to eat there for our first time. We were pleasantly greeted and promptly seated by the window so we could see the boating activities and people walking by. Our waitress was prompt, pleasant and anxious to please us...she did not know it was our special day. Our food was served promptly, prop... view more

Can't review the food. Never get a chance to taste ti

Tried to eat at pier 29 twice. First time we left after a 15 minute wait at the table for our order to be taken.\r Figured we'd try again on Mothers Day. When checking in they could not find our reservation. I was told it couldn't possibly be their mistake because they had a system for reservations. What was this high tech system, a notebood and pencil. 'You see, your name isn't there, you must have call a different ... view more

Early Birds Beware! Will never go back!

One of the worst restaurant experiences I've ever had! Brought 12 family members to enjoy the Early Bird Special on an otherwise beautiful day. From the get-go, we were treated with down right hostility, as if we were doing them a favor by eating there. We made a reservation and arrived at 5:00 pm and were scolded that we should have been there by 4:45, even though the add in the Alameda Phone Book says the Early Bir... view more

One thing first of all....the fish in their fish and chips is VERY good. The thick fries are terrible...order the thinly sliced ones. The Petralie Sole both my friend and I ordered, was tasteless...the caper sauce was great, but without it....well, it would have been a waste. The service was good. DON'T go there for brunch. Nobody cares about you and they make you wait forever. Also, SODA..NO FREE REFILLS, which is u... view more

Family loved Restaurant

Our family has enjoyed Pier 29 Restaurn for many years. I am now 36years old and grew up going for lunch with my Aunt for all our special occassions. I now take my children there. Has always been kid friendly (assuming your children have some manners). Lots of food options. We have followed Pier 29 through its location and ownership changes over the years. Never feel rushed if we want to sit and visit for awhile afte... view more
