High ceilings and twenty foot windows, offer unforgettable views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge, Alcatraz and more. Built in the late 1950's, the Franciscan restaurant has been a long standing part of the Fisherman's Wharf landscape for seafood dining. New owners have taken over and updated both the look and menu to make it more reflective of today’s San Francisco style for a wider variety of tastes.
Raw bar crabs and oysters are complemented by Italian style fish carpaccio and antipasti. Classic garlic steamed clams and cioppino are joined by creative entrees including Olive Oil Seared Local Petrale with braised greens & pasta, Prosciutto Wrapped Sturgeon, Black Cod sautéed in a seaweed soy ginger glaze and Salt Roasted Giant Prawns. Surf and turf for a new age offers multi sized combos of Half Order Crab or Tiger Prawns with 100% Midwestern Corn Fed Prime Rib.
