Butterfly Lounge & Restaurant SPECTACULAR FOOD. BREATHTAKING VIEWS. LIVELY ATMOSPHERE. WELCOME TO BUTTERFLY. Pier 33, great restaurant and very swank hip atmosphere....They had a dj spinning thru the dinner and the presentation was really good. Check them out on their Restaurant! Also you can host a private party there, which apparently they do almost every weekend! Besides all that I think they have to be the only club in San Francisco that has a view of the bay and is litterly on the water. After 3 years of success on Mission Street, butterfly restaurant moved to its current location on Pier 33 in the Fall of 2003. butterfly’s 5,000 sq. ft. dining room has floor-to-ceiling windows, offering dramatic views of San Francisco's bay. The open kitchen offers exciting views of Chef and owner Robert Lam, in action. Butterfly restaurant offers reasonably-priced innovative dishes from various Asian cuisines. Robert Lam is committed to supporting San Francisco’s diverse and innovative artistic communities. As part of his commitment, works by local artists adorn the walls of butterfly.
