To start with a positive - we ate dinner here and the food was good. The atmosphere however was sadly lacking and we felt like we had walked into a care home for the elderly. This was not about fellow guests. The ambience is not existent and the decor/furnishings is in desperate need of updating. For such a fabulous location... More

The Spinnaker is a white tablecloth restaurant with beautiful views of the bay. They have a friendly knowledgable staff who are very accommodating. The menu has a really nice variety to choose from. I've taken our granddaughters there and the staff always helps us to feel welcome. The seafood is always fresh and the portion sizes are ample. I've never... More

We come every year to California and always have lunch in The Spinnaker - the views and the food are outstanding. But this year we had a couple of disappointments let's say. The approach and restaurant need some smartening up as its looking a little sad in places; one toilet wasn't operational for a busy Easter weekend but more importantly... More

Dinner with some old friends. A gorgeous day, beautiful view. I had swordfish; nothing special. Was going to have a drink at the bar while waiting for the rest of our party to show up, but the bartender was too busy flirting with another customer.

We have dined at The Spinnaker many times over the years when we travel to California. The restaurant has a broad array of great entrees and delicious desserts. The service is excellent The Spinnaker is on San Francisco Bay and has a great view of the San Francisco skyline, Alcatraz, & the Bay Bridge.

This is a wonderful restaurant with great food and drink, however, the view is what keeps us coming back. The expansive windows give you almost a 360 degree view of San Francisco, the Bay Bridge, Tiburon, Alcatraz and the very top of the Golden Gate Bridge. On a clear day, it is breathtaking. I seem to always seek out restaurants... More

The service in this restaurant is excellent - quick, efficient and friendly. There's a good choice of tasty food. I had the Petrale fillet and it was very nice. Good wines too. All of the tables have a great view of the bay.

We had a stupendous dinner experience just now. Sat window side with a full view of the entire bay. The halibut, seared style, was out of this world. Terrific ambiance. The wait staff was exceedingly friendly. Ours was Michelle for the evening.

Seated at 6 pm, we enjoyed a perfect evening at a great restaurant. Had appetizers and salads plus seafood entrees. I had Chilean Sea Bass with seasonal vegetables. Co/workers had Bouillabaisse and Halibut respectfully. The Scallops we had for appetizers were fantastic. The bread was crunchy crusted and wonderful. No dessert but we were satisfied and happy. The service was... More
