About Angler

With dramatic views of the Bay Bridge, there are few more handsome places to drink wine in San Francisco than Angler. And man, there’s a lot of wine to choose from. At 3000 selections, this Michelin-starred venue has the sort of maximalist American wine list, usually the domain of restaurants opened somewhere in the latter quarter of the last millennium, that you almost never find. It runs to over 150 broadsheet pages, and there’s truly something for everyone, with a keen balance between old-school collectables and new wave, farming-focused, cutting-edge selections.

Nominally, the list focuses on Champagne, Burgundy (red and white), as well as Bordeaux, but there’s also several pages of pradikat and dry German Rieslings. A 30-foot wood-burning hearth dominates the open kitchen, producing unadorned preparations of new American surf-and-turf in an a la carte format. An experience at Angler can be anything from oysters on the half shell and a $60 bottle of top-flight muscadet at the bar, all the way to a blowout dinner with caviar, lobster, ribeye, vintage champagne and Bordeaux from the 1970s; regardless of what you order, you’ll keep coming back for the spectacular views and warm, polished service.

Editor's note: Morgan Harris MS, Head Sommelier at Angler, is also Star Wine List's San Francisco ambassador.
