The meals that they have in here are wonderful. I could always go back in here and get the usual thing, I should also consider that they also have a variety of great tasting pizzas for groups.

Used to be the best seafood in the bay area.

Alioto's used to be the best seafood I ever had. But ever since 1999 they have been average. Lunch is is a little bit better than dinner. For dinner I ordered the lobster thermidor hoping it would be the way I remembered it but it was bland and a bit small. The grilled calamari and shrimp for appetizer also disappointed. It was soft and bland. I would not go back. Maybe someday they will be as good as they were... view more

underwhelming, overpriced, mediocre daytripper trap

Can't let our recent, incredibly disappointing and inarguably overpriced meal at Alioto's go unreported. We had 3 days for a getaway in SF parlayed with work. Time was tight, we were on a mission to enjoy as as much of what the City has to offer. On our last day there, we returned from a ferry trip & needed to find somewhere for dinner. All the freebie guides pointed to Alioto's as a culinary fixture, with reliably... view more

Bum Treatment

Family arrived from out of town and we were hoping to make a memory; so we decided to have lunch at a SF landmark. We splurged and took the limits off and ordered to our hearts content, including Lobster Thurmadore! We were having a great time until it was discovered that the Lobster Thurmadore (which cost $50.00) only had 10% Lobster and 90% Mushrooms and filler. So we brought it to the attention of the Manager, wh... view more

Crab and chowder

We always love to come up to the Fisherman's Wharf whenever we visit San Francisco. You have to try the fresh crab.. buy two pounds or more.. So tasty. Also, a really tasty treat is the clam chowder.

Waiter Albert R., Asian, fraudulently overcharges bill to increase tip

I dined at Alioto's tonight and the waiter Albert R.., an Asian who said he was Dutch by origin, altered the final signed debit card bill to increase his tip without my knowledge by almost $15. This is in spite of the fact that my Mom and I dined at this restaurant last week and left the same waiter over a 20% tip. I am contacting my bank, business bureau, restaurant, and will never dine here again. A distasteful ... view more

What's not to like?

I'm not sure where all the bad reviews are coming from. We walked in early on a beautiful Sunday evening without reservations. It wasn't crowded when we arrived, but it was packed when we left. We were given a table by the windows with a spectacular view of the fishing fleet and the sunset over the Golden Gate Bridge, which got interrupted by the even more spectaular rolling in of the fog. The wait staff was noth... view more
