North Waterfront

North Waterfront

Inside Perspective

The neighborhood by the bay, North Waterfront extends from North Beach to beneath the foot of Telegraph Hill. The location means great views, good weather, and a lively street scene. Dog walkers, bicyclists, roller-bladers, runners, and families pushing strollers join the tourists on the Embarcadero. Fishermen cast their lines into the waters next to romantic couples on the waterfront piers that extend into the bay. Levi’s Plaza Park provides lots of grassy spaces, a gentle stream, and benches for relaxing. Browse our selection of North Waterfront homes for sale.

Locals eschew Fisherman's Wharf for Pier 23 Cafe, where bikers mingle with bankers on their outdoor patio. Fog City, at the junction of Battery Street and the Embarcadero is a beloved San Francisco institution, serving upscale food in an authentic 1930s diner. For those craving gourmet cuisine, The House serves up Asian Fusion in an intimate setting. On July 4th, there's no better place to watch the fireworks than from a balcony in the North Waterfront.

This is a walkable neighborhood, with downtown San Francisco a few minutes by foot, and access to shopping in the Marina. Public transportation to downtown is a trip back in time, thanks to Muni's vintage trolleys from around the world on the F-line, a fleet of restored street cars that trundle from Jones and Beach streets in Fisherman's Wharf along the Embarcadero and up Market Street to the Castro District.
