Slow, slow, slowRecently dined here on two occasions (once for lunch, once for dinner). Both times the service was painfully slow. If you are not in a hurry, its great, otherwise don't be in a hurry. Fish was fresh, but not worth the 11 bucks for two pieces and some fries.
Terrible valueYou should expect to pay more when you eat at Santana Row because you are helping the restaurants pay for their high leases for just being there. Yankee Pier is no exception. For dinner expect to pay over $20.00 just for a fish entree on a bed of mash potatoes with a side veggie. The food was only average and came as a small portion when you compare this place to other fish restaurants where you would pay 25-50% less. In addition, there was nothing there that made this fish restaurant "special". I walked out of there feeling that I was robbed. Go there for lunch when prices are generally lower or leave this as a last resort when you can't find seating at other restaurants.
Great meal at Yankee PierWe had a great dinner at Yankee Pier this past week. Superb service, great meals. Chowder was wonderful, corn soup great, the Ahi was excellent. Desserts are amazing. The outdoor seating was just the ticket, and our waitress and other servers could not have been more attentive. I'll be back!
Excellent Meal and Service!My hunband and I ate here on Friday, October 7, around 9 PM.
It's alrightI only go for their oysters. I like to sit outside, order oysters and a mango martini or bloody mary and watch the people out to see and be seen on Santana Row. Pretty funny stuff. I'm no connoisseur, but I really like their oysters and there's something about their cocktail sauce that's yummy to me... Their burger is also surprisingly good, but everything else is mediocre... average at best. The servers aren't very attentive, but service isn't horrible. Indoor seating feels stuffy and slightly humid. I always end up back there but never order anything but oysters. Weird, I know.
Friendly Staff - but service is SLOW AS MOLASSESEveryone is super friendly, the atmosphere is child friendly, but can definitely get extremely loud - even for folks with children - the children end up being the quiet of the bunch.
do not goI was not only forgotten, I was treated like a dog. The service is bad, the food is ok at best. The prices are what you would see in a true fine dinning restaurant. All in all do not go. It will not only take you all night it will take you straight to the bank for less then par grub/
good lobster rollMy aunt and I had lunch on a Tuesday and the the service was courteous and prompt. My aunt enjoyed her lobster roll and I enjoyed my chowder and shrimp salad.
horrible service and food is not that greatWe went to Yankee Pier for dinner on Wednesday March 21, 2007. When we were greeted by the hostess, she told us to wait for a table when the restaurant was empty. We got seated in the cold back patio. It seemed though as if all the colored people were seated in that section because all the white people were sitting in the warm inside or outside of the restaurant were there were nice heaters and nice views of the shops at Santana Row. Our server was very rude, she didn't bother to serve us. She didn't bring out plates for the bread and when my girlfriend asked the hostess for plates, she gave us dirty plates. Our server didn't even notice or bother to care about the dirt on the plates. We also ordered lobster and she said it was served cold when we asked it to be served hot. It's not that hard to heat up a lobster, I think she was being lazy or not wanting to give us what we wanted. I am never coming back here again. We were treated like prisoners on angel island. This restaurant should be shut done because there is a lot of better places out there were the service actually pays attention to the customers.
Kid Friendly??My girlfriends and I went with our toddlers for lunch. When we entered, the hostess, who was training, was very friendly and seated us. To our dismay, the waiters and waitresses were RUDE enough to scold the hostess in front of us for seating us because they were not yet opened for lunch - didn't see a sign outside with hours and all the doors were opened. We apologized and said we can leave and come back in 5 minutes or so but they said it was alright. But we got looks from everyone! The "kids meals" were piping hot when they served it. What's up with that? All in all, the food was good but no "WOW!". The servers all had attitudes so we left a poor tip - and I'm a BIG tipper now that I have a toddler. I'll never give them my business again.
Good ChowderI enjoyed myself here. The clam chowder was thick and creamy...two thumbs up, and the crab was no slouch. I will definatly be back. Our waiter was fairly accomodating he was always there when i needed a refill. So no comlaints there. The only complaint i could really think of that would warrant some concern, was the way they treated their staff. Alot of yelling and cursing. Not a very civil thing to do in front of customers. And the oysters could have been much fresher. All in all it was good, but they need to address management issues that require loud yelling privatly. That part was extremly unprofessional .
Theme Park Fish ShackI don't know how I got talked into this place, but there we were, ordering clam chowder. With all of the stellar restaurants in Santana Row, we got stuck in the barnacle.
