"I ate at Butterfly with my family for lunch during SF Restaurant Week. The restaurant was very quiet for a Sunday afternoon and we got a nice view of the ocean as well. We ordered the duck confit spring rolls and the calamari as appetizers. They were both very good. I especially enjoyed the duck. We both ordered the Shanghai Garlic Noodles which was also very tasty. Their service was good and they were very helpful. This place is really nice for lunch or a quick cocktail if you're exploring about the Pier."

"Went for Sunday brunch and had the Restaurant Week lunch menu. Restaurant had just opened so very few other customers. The service was attentive and helpful. The waiter did a nice describing the dishes and flavors we could expect.
Food was well presented. Flavors might have lacked a little bit in execution, but they were still well prepared and tasty. For example my duck spring rolls were light and crispy outside but lacking much duck flavor. The flavor that came through was the red onion. Nice texture though. I also had shaking beef with garlic noodles. The noodles were not too special but the beef was tender and delicious.
The best course was dessert. We had creme brulee and banana bread pudding with coconut ice cream. Both were scrumptious. I would go back just for dessert and drinks."

"Not the best place for a networking dinner.
We sat at a group table of 6 which was so large that we could only talk to the person on the side of us. I found it expensive for what it was, but the food was good.
One main plate + glass of wine $50.

"Excellent & professional service, creative offerings, not quite perfect execution. Two of us truly enjoyed our meals AND drinks (esp the litchitini). However, the third person asked for her hanger steak to be cooked "medium" & it arrived bloody rare & already cut into pieces, eliminating any chance of fixing it. Poorly done, given the prices charged ($220 for 3 people)."

"The food was amazing, in particular the oyster shooters, the clam & oyster appetizer, and the banana dessert (I forgot what it was called exactly). I had the pinot grigio and cabernet to go with the apps and dessert and they were delicious as well. The giant abalone light fixtures were amazing, fitting since the restaurant has a great view of the bay. I had the lamb shank with rice crisps for dinner. While it was tasty, I feel like it could have used a little less sauce. It was just a tad too salty for my taste. All in all though, I really enjoyed it and would definitely go back. I have my eye on the duck crepes for next time!"

"Visited during SF Restaurant Week. Portions were over the top with abundance and flavor. Loved the variety and freshness. Kalua Pig was slightly salty and the hangar steak was a little overcooked. However, the freshness of the meal outdid the minor needed improvements."

"Wait staff was prompt, the ambiance was very relaxing, and most of the food was delicious. The only reason why I say that most of the food is because my entree (The Lamb Shank) was a little over done on one side and was basically inedible. The side that was cooked well was tasty, but since half was overdone/burnt, it felt like a waste."

"GM was very service oriented and friendly - in a sincere way. He was receptive to feedback about a few minor things. Not defensive at all.
Great place!"

"Nice food selection. The appetizers we selected we excellent. Some of the entrees were amazing while a couple fell a bit flat. Somewhat pricey for what we got. It is good, but probably not excellent as I'd hoped it would be."

"Most of the restaurants near Fisherman's Wharf and the Alcatraz pier are kind of terrible. This one is excellent. We had just come back from an Alcatraz tour, and after walking around in the cold and damp on the Rock, the warm, spiced, boozy cider cocktail, and the kalua pork lettuce cups, were JUST what we needed. Highly recommended."
