Superb little restaurant on Fillmore Street. Food was delicious, with friendly service and nothing seemed like a hassle. Really relaxing environment. Comes highly recommended!

My husband and I wanted to find a seafood restaurant that was off the beaten path ie not Fisherman's Wharf. And we were really happy we found this little gem in the Alamo Square neighbourhood. We went on a Wednesday night, which is free corkage and had booked a table for 6:15pm. It was not busy but quickly filled up... More

We recently had a convention in San Francisco and set out to take some clients to a restaurant that was small and in a quiet neighborhood off of the main path. WE FOUND IT. Alamo Square Seafood Grill was the best restaurant. Initially we stunned the employees when six of us walked in and they didn't have our reservation (Open... More

We had their fixed price early evening menu. Limited choice as you would expect, but really good fish, well cooked with decent vegetables. We really enjoyed this meal. Fantastic value. Be sure to book, even at short notice.

We liked everything about this small, comfortable restaurant. We arrived in time to take advantage of their prix-fixe menu--an amazing value at $14.50 for three courses. Everything was delicious. Service was friendly and responsive. Excellent wines were available by the glass at reasonable prices.

We loved the quirky ambiance, with piles all around the wall seating, nice art, low light. The seasoned vegetables were ridiculously good, the trout small but delectable, but the calamari stole the show. Very nice waiter, accommodated us and our messy baby. I would have liked a wider variety of fish on the menu and our bowl of chowder seemed... More

This is really a local neighborhood restaurant, The night we were their, it was quite busy the night we went. We picked our appetizers before we started to look at the dinner menu. Good Thing, otherwise we woould probably still be waiting for our food. We waited over 15 minutes between when our empty appetizer plates were taken away until... More

Picked this off OpenTable for a dinner with friends while back in SF for the weekend. As a native, I wanted something really local. Small menu with excellent fresh fish. Must try the muscles with chorizo!! Fab food for a great price.

This seems to be a place with a lot of locals. Our B&B mentioned that this place was a secret but that is not really true, just look at Tripadvisor! It is a bit hyped, maybe too much? Good food but service was a little slow. Preparation was good but nothing spectacular. Prices are a bit high but it's SFO...

Nice place with wonderful fresh seafood. Very small so large parties are kind of cramped. Waiter was ok - not super friendly.
