Angler San Francisco exterior decor

Angler is a more casual seafood – meat restaurant from Three Michelin Star Saison’s Joshua Skenes.

Angler San Francisco interior decor

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.

Picks:
Mojito ($18) was good and strong but pretty darn expensive.

Angler San Francisco oysters

Oysters ($4 each) Marin Gems and Miyagis hit the spot.

Angler San Francisco bread butter

Chad’s Bread ($8) was made by Tartine but was good as usual. Extra $3 for Butter is crazy.

Angler San Francisco Radicchio XO salad

Radicchio XO Salad ($13) was very unique. They even give you a bib to wear! A tall salad that gets your plate very purple.

Angler San Francisco tomato

Tomatoes & Honey Vinegar ($17) was also interesting. Strong topping and nice fresh tomato bottom.

Angler San Francisco rabbit

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.

Angler San Francisco hen of the woods

Hen of the Woods ($18) were well done but also a little overwhelmed with the sauce.

Just OK:

Angler San Francisco uni

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.

Angler San Francisco lettuce and herbs

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.

Angler Overall Rating: (Very Good 2.5)
