This place on the Embarcadero has huge bay views and giant floor-to-ceiling fish tanks that make it feel more like an aquarium with table service than a restaurant, and when you have clients you want to impress, it’s hard to beat this spot. The menu changes up nightly based on what’s in season, but you can always get phenomenal oysters, ceviches, and roasted fish like cod filets and swordfish steaks.
