Stopped in for lunch and some happy hour specials. This was our first time eating raw oysters. Waitress was very nice and helpful. Food wasn't great or terrible, just decent. View was very nice.

The upstairs is very spacious and the view is just spectacular of the San Francisco bay and the boats. We were by the window, and the pasta and the wine were both delicious. We will definitely come back.

I can't say that I've tried them all, but the Cioppino at Tarantino's has to be among the best in the world. Absolutely the freshest seafood in the most amazing tomato-based broth ever made. No pasta to waste space in the bowl - just some garlic toast for dunking. Enough for two to share, but I ate every bit of... More

Had the crab cocktail and fried prawns. Crab cocktail was ok but super overpriced for the tiny portion. Fried prawns were soggy and luke warm at best. Better off walking by and trying one of the myriad other seafood places on the wharf

I had the seafood alfredo and it was quite good, the salad however was drowned in dressing. Not sure why they feel the need to take a perfectly nice salad and make it limp in dressing. A decent option in Fisherman's wharf area but ask for the dressing on the side.

Food really not too impressive.. over cooked, poor flavours and service just adequate. Very quiet and for a good reason! Nice view and location.

For under $30, you'll get a salad, bread and about a pound of crab. Nothing fancy - just delicious crab. There's generally a draft beer special to go along with it as well. Pretty much every table has a nice view of the water as well. Of course, there's the regular menu which can get rather pricey (and a bit... More

We stopped in here for lunch. Very nice atmosphere with a view of the Wharf. We both had the crab cake and soup lunch special. It was fantastic! Service was very nice and efficient. It was a little pricey for lunch (about $20/meal) but a really nice view of the Wharf was definitely worth it!

We went here based on reviews on TA. Great views but thats about all. Very pricey for what we got. We ordered the hamburger which was very bland and the lobster which was underwhelming. Chowder was pleasant.
