Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Farallon’s singular seafood obsession is evident in the decor, from the custom jellyfish chandeliers to the octopus-styled stools and “caviar” staircase embellished with marbles. The whimsical restaurant has been serving fresh local seafood for over two decades. Order a flight of west coast oysters at the raw bar, served with a sparkling rose mignonette, or a sampler of fruits de mer: chilled gulf prawns, local dungeness crab, and Maine lobster (half or whole). Farallon offers a half-dozen kinds of caviar, as well as starters like local halibut tartare and a Jimmy Nardello pepper stuffed with Dungeness crab. The entrees vary according to what’s in season, with fish sourced from San Francisco, California, Massachusetts, and beyond. Specialties include the charcoal-grilled scallops and the charred Spanish octopus.
