Great place for sea food. Clam chowder the best I have tasted ever. We started with oysters then shared a plate of beer battered flounder. Quite enough for 2. Good idea to reserve a table.

I stopped in here after hearing it was one of the best seafood restaurants in SF. I ordered the clam chowder and my mind was blown! It was one of the best I've ever had! It was so rich and worth the $10 price tag....More

Nice spot for a business or friends dinner. Sole with currants and cauliflower was outstanding. Calamari was OK. My colleagues had the lobster roll - said the brioche buns were excellent; tater tots and lobster roll were OK. Relatively limited wine by the glass menu....More

Dined there at hotel recommendation. They only serve beer and wine so we were disappointed to learn we couldn't get a Bloody Mary. I asked for a sweet white wine and waiter seemed offended by that. They don't serve that either. Maybe it's a cali...More

Loved this restaurant. Food was fabulous. Beautiful presentation and some unusual combinations. Service was extremely good. Ambience was lively and fun. Loved the interior; very edgy with the trendy 'industrial' look. Had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and would highly recommend.

Hard to find in a side alley, this revealed itself as a gem. Super cool interior with a size not to big. We have fantastic pork belly with Yuzu Cabbage, Most tender mussels with chorizo and great crisp salmon! Along with that they have a...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
