132 The Embarcadero
San Francisco, CA 94105
Angler is a more casual seafood – meat restaurant from Three Michelin Star Saison’s Joshua Skenes.
It is located right on the Embarcadero and has a beautiful interior. The focus is on seafood and meats with a lots of wood hearth cooked items.
Prices are very high and the food was unique but with heavy handed flavor. Not much is left to subtlety.
Mojito ($18) was good and strong but pretty darn expensive.
Oysters ($4 each) Marin Gems and Miyagis hit the spot.
Chad’s Bread ($8) was made by Tartine but was good as usual. Extra $3 for Butter is crazy.
Radicchio XO Salad ($13) was very unique. They even give you a bib to wear! A tall salad that gets your plate very purple.
Tomatoes & Honey Vinegar ($17) was also interesting. Strong topping and nice fresh tomato bottom.
Hot Grilled Rabbit ($40) had 2 big chunks of crunchy deep fried rabbit with a nice kick. Watch out for the little bones. Unique preparation.
Hen of the Woods ($18) were well done but also a little overwhelmed with the sauce.
Sea Urchin ($40) with lobster was strong on the lobster flavor and had nice uni texture. Not really worth $40. You can see they are live in the tank.
Lettuce & Herbs ($12) looked more ordinary and was also heavily dressed.
Would not reorder:
Artichokes ($18) were prepared well but the sauce was too sour.
