An Under the Sea Experience

There is no shortage of fantastic seafood restaurants in this town, but if you want the full coastal experience, you have to try Farallon.

Its dramatic dining areas really steal the show. From floating jellyfish lamps to a hand painted ceiling that resembles an old treasure map, the restaurant is filled with clever touches that hammer home the underwater theme. Of course, the seafood is really where this place shines. Don’t miss the raw bar where they showcase their sustainably-raised shellfish on beds of crushed ice. The Fruits de Mer platters are an impressive way to start off a dinner with clients.

You can’t go wrong with any of their entrees. The executive chef Ryan Simas uses the best ingredients from the area. Each dish is colorful and completely delicious. Throughout your meal, be sure to ask about the French and California white wines There are some good values on the wine list, but ask for help to find them. At first glance the list will appear very expensive.

Menu Highlights:
Mediterranean Shellfish Bisque, Fruits de Mer platter, and Seared Alaskan True Cod.

  • Very cool interior but the best part is the seafood. There are many great places to eat in San Francisco but this miss this one. You won’t be sorry.
