Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Ferry building marketplace is one the centre point and land mark. Big wall clock is situated on the top and time can be viewed from long distance. Many shops are there in the building. Ferry services are available nearby.

    Located beside Fishermans Wharf, this collection of buildings set around a great courtyard houses all things chocolate. It’s a great visit and of course you must buy something to take home.

    We stayed at the Hilton Hotel which was a walking distance from the Union Square. This is a good area with many department stores like Macy’s, restaurants and theatres. The park is resplendent with palm and yew trees, flowers and stone benches.

    One often sights flower vendors here along with street artists and musicians. There also are a lot of pigeons.

    There are a lot of homeless people in the area. It’s best to overlook them or assist them in a small way if they are not on drugs.

    The Westfield Centre is a massive shopping plaza in downtown San Fransisco. It has all of the big name brands within. Good place to shop.

    Wasn’t quite what we were expecting but we had fun nonetheless. A decent assortment of shops, lots of restaurants, but dingy and stuffy. Some shops had good prices while others were very high. Daiso was probably the most fun place. Worth an hour or two visit if Japanese shops and food is of interest.

    While there are some shopping options, I always visit the Embarcadero Center for the food. Wide variety of options has always left me satisfied.

    Because you are off the street and away from traffic, this small shopping center is pleasant. Not sure how successful it is as there are empty store fronts. Some places to eat.

    I actually like to come visit this store whenever i'm in town looking for deep discounts on sportswear. It does carry quite a bit of the local teams stuff, but there is a large selection of other college/sports teams around the country(guess its for the wannabe ny fan).

    This mall definitely wins most improved award. On a Sunday afternoon the mall is crowded and vibrant. Mostly mainstream Mall stores, but a few unusual places. If you're into pokémon, there's an entire store filled with pokemon. The gadget store has the best selection of phone mounting devices I've ever seen, including amazon. And the food court, although almost exclusively Asian food, was decent. The mall appears to be clean and all of them all patrons are wearing masks, even though they don't have to.

    Oh my! Lots of unhappy campers posting comments here. I have made 2 purchases for woks with this shop and on both occasions I have been very pleased with their customer service. It goes like this....I place the order, receive confirmation that order was received and a few weeks later I have my wok. And the wok is the best one I have ever owned. i live clear cross country from SF so I do not expect to receive my order in 2 or 3 days. I would recommend The Wok Shop and will order again should I need.

    We were in the Fisherman Wharf area so wandered over to Anchorage Square which is nearby. There are some shops such as Sunglass Hut and Anchorag Liqour. There are places, primarly the fast food restaurant type.

    Laurel Village is a standard for the locals who live in this area. Roughly, the stores are:

    Food: Bryan's and Cal-Mart, both grocery stores with a spectacular array of produce and gourmet foods. A second Bryan's for fresh fish and gourmet prepared foods, A.G. Ferrari pastas, sauces and prepared foods, Noah's Bagels.

    Coffee shops: Starbucks, Peets and a non-chain cake and pastry shop.

    A good book store, some banks, Gap, Imaginarium, the most excellent Papyrus for cards and stationary, a shoe store for children, a Walgreens, a five & dime everything store, and a wine shop.

    A block up is Sacramento Street with upscale boutiques for women's, men's and children's clothing, and lots of furniture and antique shops, a number of nice restaurants and a movie theater. It is a shopping street in a residential area.

    It’s a nice stop next to Yerba Buena gardens. Convenient to Moscone Centre. Good choices for a casual meal out.

    We walked from Fisherman Wharf to the cannnery. It used to be a site of a fruit processing company. Now there are some shops and cafes.
