Waterfront Restaurant

Table 403

The Bay Lights ­ a singular wonder in the city of San Francisco. 25,000 individual white LEDs spread along 1.8 miles of the cables on the north side of the suspension span of the Bay Bridge, between Yerba Buena Island and San Francisco. The installation is controlled via computer and displays changing patterns that never repeat; it’s considered to be the world’s largest LED light sculpture. Table 403 at The Waterfront Restaurant & Cafe is the absolutely best place in San Francisco to watch the nightly spectacular display. Your experience at Waterfront will only be enhanced by its outstanding cuisine and service. The restaurant is casually elegant with high, wood beamed ceilings and low lighting. Black­ tied and vested waiters provide prompt, polite and attentive service. The American ­cuisine themed menu features some outstanding choices, such as Whole Wood Oven Roasted Dungeness Crab with Handmade Linguini; Filet of Beef Tenderloin with Fingerling Potatoes, Spinach & Bordelaise Sauce; and their special, classic Cioppino. WARNING: The Waterfront’s owner, Al Falchi, has been running the restaurant for 47 years. He’s developed some, ah, habits. One of them is that he allows diners to stay at Table 403 for as long as they’d like – hours, in some cases! Good news – if you’re at the table. If not, be prepared for an extended wait to get it.
