Good location to spend an evening. Nicely located, also close to other shops and restaurants. Looks pretty at night.

Ghirardelli Square has so much more than just Ghirardelli! We ate dinner at McCormick's & Kuleto's Seafood & Steak above Ghirardelli with picture windows looking out over the water while dining! The food was high priced but delicious and the views are worth it. The ice cream at the Ghirardelli shop was amazing and worth the short wait in line.... More

Yes it's a must see but the true chocolate making for the company is done out in the suburbs. This is just a tourist venue where they sell chocolate and ice-cream sundaes . . . ok but there is better ice-cream down on the waterfront around the corner.

busy place.... for good reason, this is a great place to bring the family, or go as a couple, or go by yourself, hot chocolate drinks - so rich that you could share with two, as you could with any of these desserts. They are big, rich and decadent!

The variety of chocolates here is incredible. Its best to pick and choose through the plethora they offer and buy by the weight. You have to indulge in a Sundae while your there and take in the view of the bay and Alcatraz Island.

You MUST get a sundae when in Ghirradelli! Seating is tight and tourists aren't always polite but the chocolate never disappoints!

The chocolate sundae is truly indulgent. There was no way I could finish all mine. Chocolate heaven in a sundae dish

The hot fudge Sunday at ghirardelli square is to die for. Not a lot of people might know this, ghiradelli does not make ice cream, they buy it from outside. Its the fudge that does the magic. So dont forget to buy the fudge if you like the sunday.

It's definitely worth the trip if you plan on buying some chocolate at the Ghirardelli store, but other than that, there's nothing much more there to do. I was expecting more "stuff" around there.
