I've been on a Hornblower trip before. We checked in with no hassles and got a great table. I was pleasantly surprised that the food has been significantly upgraded. The staff was friendly and very responsive. The band ads a slight layer of...continued

We ordered the upgrade dinner, filet mignon, and it was FABULOUS. The veggies were done perfectly, not mushy, and the scalloped potatoes were also great. It was a beautiful experience. My only caution would be to be aware that the gratuity is...continued

The staff was attentive, the band was good, the scenery was wonderful. The food, while good, was not what I'd expect for the amount paid. (Don't get the chocolate mousse - it really isn't mousse and is rather bland.) The drinks were also very...continued

What a great evening. The weather was good (clear and crisp-views of the bay and city were spectacular), dinner was delicious (the wait staff simply extraordinary!!!), and what a band!
A great adventure for a couple or a group: I'll definitely go...continued

Really good food. Romantic. A little expensive with all the extras...parking, tipping the band, drinks, but worth it. The band was lovely and sweet...a couple who has been playing on the boat for 30 years. They really enjoyed playing together.

I had a great time! The food was mediocre but the service was exceptional. I highly recommend this for couples looking for a special night out.

This was a great experience. The staff was on top of all our needs. The only disappointment is I was charged for a re-fill on my diet coke?? Not even Taco Bell charges for a re-fill. Otherwise the food was great and we had a beautiful of the City.

I worried that we'd be bored since the cruise is 4.5 hours, but it passed quickly and choosing the music type by deck was OK.

It was fun, but a major hassle since Goldstar did not give Hornblower the reservation. We were in a line of people who bought tickets through Goldstar that Hornblower had no record of. Luckily they let us on. The food was great, the ride smooth....continued

Been to the cruise with a company party a couple years ago, very crowded and fun. This time a lot quieter, spent some quality time with my hubby. Good choices for entrees and the cheesecake... still tasting it. The band defenitily makes a...continued

Seattle may have the Needle, but SF has the Hornblower which includes dancing.

Took my BBF since she wanted to see San Francisco at night on the water. The food was good considering the meal was made on the boat. Wine selection was okay but over price. The view was priceless. It was incredible and it made me fall in love...continued

We had a very nice evening with the dinner and the dancing. The cruising around the Bay was nice, even with a layer of fog hanging around the City. Would we do it again??? Yes we would.
