Great food for a great price

As a frequent traveler to San Francisco, I make sure to visit this restaurant every time. The pre fixe is always worth it and the food is amazing without a doubt. Ask the servers for not only their wine recommendations but also what their favorite dish to eat. I have never been disappointed.

Located just a few steps from Alamo Square, the Alamo Square Seafood Grill is a rare find among San Francisco restaurants. Small (ca. 25 small tables), with unpretentious decor, it offers beautifully prepared seafood dishes that would command twice the price in a larger restaurant with linen tablecloths and a view. A daily specialty of the house is four fresh... More

Great little restaurant. Booking essential unless you eat early, as we did. Was within walking distance to our hotel, the Grove Inn. Gotta love that !

Had the tuna special and it was absolutely tremendous. Friend had the steak and he said it was very good as well. The atmosphere was warm and cozy -- great bench seats by the front window. Very reasonable prices and large serving sizes, which is a combination I almost never see in this city. Definitely will be back!

This restaurant is close to the painted ladies but off the main path, a great place to dine with locals. It was charming and small. They offer a special board daily with 4 appetizers and 4 entrees. In addition to the specials, they also over 4 fresh fishes, that you selected how its cooked (sautéed, grilled, baked or poached) plus... More

Was conveniently located (right across from where we were staying) - Time was of the essence so we chose to dine here. The food was good (Quality 7/10) however the service could have been better, however this did not prevent us from enjoying the rest of the night.

I've driven by this place several times, finally decided to check it out. It's not "near" any other businesses, which makes going there feel special. Everything we had was exceptional, but my favorite was the grilled shrimp ceviche appetizer. Marvelous flavors, all very fresh. The place was buzzing on Saturday night, mostly with local folks as far as we could... More

A very nice dinner at an out of the way bistro. For their fresh fish (the night’s options were trout, salmon, snapper & sole), you get several choices of preparation (grilled, sautéed, etc.) and several choices of sauce. I had the grilled snapper with Buerre Maitre d’Hotel (garlic and parsley butter). Large portion, perfectly cooked. Most surprising thing was the... More

Easy walking distance from the Chateau Tivoli. We started with a Kir Royale and a Kir Imperial - we highly recommend the Kir Imperial (champagne & blackberry liqueur). Our entries were superb as was dessert. We will be back the next time we're in San Francisco.

The seafood was super delicious. We stayed at the Grove Inn Boutique Hotel that is right around the corner of Seafood Grill. The service took quite a while - but it was quite crowded inside - so that might have been the reason for us waiting.
