The staff at Waterbar Restaurant, situated just a stone's throw from the Bay Bridge, said they saw their fair share of newly-weds this Valentine's Day. The restaurant hosted several wedding receptions.
Pete Sittnick of Waterbar said Tuesday was a busy day and anticipated an even busier night.
"Valentine's Day, it's on a Tuesday, so, it means we get a little extra business over the weekend we get a little extra business on Monday and then tonight is just completely sold out," he said.
Sean Foley and Ed Watkins celebrated seven years of love at the restaurant.
The couple's lunch date consisted of a few oysters and champagne.
