Success! Thanks for posting your review of Farallon. You’ve done the world some good today.

Great high end restaurant that you can go in casual clothing.

First of all, this is a high end restaurant, they take reservations, and most people go well dressed. I like to go to restaurants with great food but I do not like to dress up, and its nice to have the option to dress just ""comfortable"". The food is very good and up to what you expect at this price range. The service is good too, although I personally do not like to be asked how everything is while I have my mouth ... view more

Fantastic food and service

Our experience started with the butter which was great and went uphill from there. The Mediterannean Shellfish Soup was light and incredibly flavorful. The seared Kona Blue Kampachi with a light paprika dusting with a truffle ravioli and carmelized onion jus was a new taste sensation for us. The Hawaiin Walu melted in our mouths and the caramel apple sundae with brown butter pecan brittle made me want more. The se... view more

San Francisco ""has been""

Farallon is a San Francisco ""has been"" that should be embarrassed to consider itself an elite restaurant in this town. I recently had dinner at Farallon and the whole experience was down right unacceptable for the price tag. \r \r FOOD. The food was mediocre, at best. The fish over cooked, temperature of one dish too cold, one dish over salted and a potato accompaniment to one of the meals was dry, hard and h... view more

Great platter dish

My favorite dish at Farallon is the grand prix platter dish. A two-level dish of shrimps, clams, oysters, lobsters and crabs are brought to the table, which gives a WOW to the table. The entre is a little less appealing but it does have a sensitive flavoring. I wish the menu had more variety, though.

Pleasant staff, great food, beautiful decor.

OK, so I felt like I had to write and tell of my positive experience @ Farallon. First things first. We were late for our reservation but they worked with us and made sure we had a nice booth just the same. The valet parking was fast, affordable (for the area), and efficient...also, our car was waiting for us before we walked out of the restaurant after our meal. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and attentive a... view more

Great restaurant

This is a really, really good seafood restaurant (and the meat dishes are great too!).\r \r The shellfish and fish are really fresh, there is a wonderful selection of oysters and the food is very well prepared and presented.\r \r The restaurant itself has a great atmosphere, the staff are knowledgeable, courteous and approachable and the interior of the restaurant is very interesting with some great design featur... view more

20,000 Leagues away from fine dining

For all of it's 20,000 Leagues under the sea decor, Farallon is 20,000 leagues away from the big league...\r \r I had a very disappointing experience at, what I had heard to be one of Americas top ten seafood restaurants. The signs were there early on, starting with a hostess who tersely cut me off when I approached her ""I will be with you in a minute""... Now, this would have been fine, had she actually been doin... view more

Great Service & Atmosphere,Poor Food

My husband and I recently went to this resturaunt for our anniversary and made reservations on the internet. We were very excited when we arrived and our table was immediatly ready and wonderfully located. The kitchen was located in the dining area that they sat us in, but we were so taken by the beautiful atmosphere that this was not a concern.The waiter was very attentive and seemed to be very knowledgable of the m... view more

Excellent service, tasty food!

I was looking for a good restaurant in San Francisco for quite some time. Having spent almost two years in this city (after moving here from Europe) I had hard times finding something that can live up to my expectations. Now I am writing my first review ever simply because I want ""good food lovers"" to know that there is a place worth their consideration...and money! Farallon is just great. Service is extremely comp... view more
