Usually when you want to eat near the Ferry Building, you also want to revel in the fact that you are near the ocean. We live on the coast, people, and it’s mandated that we eat three to nine servings of seafood per day. La Mar does excellent ceviche right on the water, along with plenty of bar seating and high ceilings - both which make it feel open and spacious. On a nice night, the outdoor patio on the water is basically perfect.
