I order the calamari and it's tender, huge portion and prepared perfect ,old school . the hole menu is sweet! Don't get scammed by the wharf slam joints try this joint its the best !
surprised. For being a wharf restaurant I was pleasantly surprised. For one, it's huge so getting in is easy last minute if you're in teh area. The menu is pretty good and our waiter was great. There were 3 of us, we all had different entree's, 2 fish and 1 pasta dish we were all happy with our meals. I don't think this is one of the best restaurants in SF and probably wont' return, BUT if you're down by the wharf surrounded by the zillion tourist traps this is definitely a good place to get above that, enjoy a wonderful view, nice atmosphere and tasty food.
Fresh seafood, great view, too loud for fine dining. Had dinner at A. Sabella's for Valentine's Day. We started off with ceasar salad, which was ok, and the mixed chilled shelffish for appetizer. Felt they were stingy with. For $16, it included 1 prawn, 1 scallop, 2 manila clams, 4 tiny mussels. My bf had the filet mignon with mesquite grilled 1 lb lobster ($49). The combination of the 2 was exquisite. I had the seafood risotto ($29), which was also great. It was filled with more seafood than the risotto itself. You can really taste the freshness in their seafood. Then, we shared the trio sorbet for desert ($8.75). A glass of wine will run you about $20/glass, great wine selection by the way. The view is great only if it's a clear day/night. For a fancy dinner restaurant, felt it was too noisy, and not too intimate.. maybe because it was Valentine's. Their service was great, and efficient. We were in and out in 1hr 15min. This restaurant, I would try if you are in the area. It's not something you go out of your way for.
GREAT PLACE AND SERVICE. The food is great, so fresh, I had the mix grill which was outstanding and my friend had the sea bass, which she said was the best she has ever tasted. After reading a few of the reviews on City Search, we asked for Christopher to be our food server and we were so happy we did. The service was some of the best I've ever experienced, We highly recommended you ask to have him be your server!
Some of the best food I had in San Fran.
A. Sabellas is certainly not the place to go if you are on a budget. It is somewhat pricey for the amount of food. That being said, if you have money to spend and are looking for great tasting food, A. Sabellas is a great place to go. I had the Filet and Lobster plate at $46 dollars it was quite expensive but the fliet was tender and flavorful and the lobster was some of the sweetest I had ever experienced. My husband had the seafood ciopino which was $27 (quite pricey for soup) but he said it had wonderful flavor as well. The servers were very attentive and knowledgable regarding the menu.
If you decide to go beware of the a window seat... it looks like a good idea as you think you will have a view of the wharf but all you really have a view of are the thousands of people on the wharf. If people watching is your goal get a window seat. If you are looking for romance choose a seat further away from the window to focus on your dining partner. Also, the restaurant only validates parking from certain garages so don't park on the actual wharf or it will not be validated
INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCIE. Every aspect of our meal was perfect. The food was delicioous. As recommed by a previous reviewer we requested Christopher to be our server and we highly recommed you do the same when you make your reservation. We were impressed, his service was professional, attentive (without being intrusive) very knowledgable, friendly, efficient and grarcious. Over-all I highly recommed A. Sabella's
NOT WORTH IT. It definitely did not live up to the reviews. We took our mom there for mothers day the service did live up to its reviews but the food and everything else fell extremely short. I understand that its located in a touristy area but it was way way overpriced especially for the portions of food. Definitely better options on the Wharf....Extremely disappointing!!!!
EXCELLENT SERVICE. The Food was excellent. To our delight we ask for Christopher to be our server as recommened by a previous reviewer, he was so knowlegable, professional and very friendly, we recommend you ask for him to be your server also, it will make your dining experience complete.
Great for 1st date!. The view is great. Great service. Very tasty Dungee crabs, clam chowder.
Waterfront views, a seafood menu and a central Fisherman's Wharf locale make this restaurant a prime tourist destination..
Menus are available in several different languages at this longtime Fisherman's Wharf fixture. Tourists from all over the world eat here while taking in the bay views. The menu centers on American seafood dishes. Grilled salmon and mixed seafood risotto are served with cream sauce. Dungeness crab is available during the late-winter crab season.
