Located on The Embarcadero waterfront in the Rincon Park area, Waterbar serves as the latest expression of Pat Kuleto’s signature esthetic of whimsical opulence and inspired use of hand-crafted materials.
As always, Kuleto designed Waterbar with an emphasis on hosting guests' most memorable celebrations and events. Accordingly, Waterbar is one of the finest private dining facilities in the Bay Area.
The entire Second Floor of Waterbar is dedicated to Private Dining, including a private kitchen, full bar, 60-seat dining room and outdoor terraces. The North Terrace & Bar, and indoor/outdoor space, overlooks the main bar and boasts a spectacular view of the Bay Bridge. The space is a perfect place for an after-work cocktail gathering. The Bridge Tower Room, on the south side of the building, is nestled directly under the Bay Bridge on the San Francisco Bay. Wall-to-wall windows allow for a Bay and City view simultaneously, and the private terrace provides a theatrical backdrop for the private dining room.
The main floor features two dramatic, floor-to-ceiling circular aquariums filled with an eye-catching array of fish and marine life from the Pacific Ocean. Walls of vividly illuminated fish tanks display a gallery of live Dungeness crab and Maine lobsters featured on the daily-changing menu.
Waterbar features sustainable seafood available from both local and international waters, respecting seasonality and the natural essence of the sea. Under the direction of Executive Chef and Owner Parke Ulrich, preparations are soulful, elegant and unpretentious.
The Private Dining Menu offers many options: a large selection of hors d’oeuvres, Oysters Adrift showcasing decadent raw bars, classic fish dishes as well as sustainably raised meat and poultry. Several family-style options, including a Lobster Feat or Clambake, are ideal for creating a festive mood.
