Small but really good

The hostess, Susie I think, was brilliant. Couldn't have been more helpful. The food was good. Several of our party had steaks all cooked to different tastes and all cooked to perfection. I had the fish soup. I loved it. Great flavours. Lovely atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this... read more

Did not deliver according to rating, rather average. Food rather dull, sevice undermanned (2 persons) and accepted too many new customers despite that. Charged fix gratuity which for me indicates awareness of underperformance..

Fun, casual neighborhood spot. Very good seafood, simple and tasty presentation. Wife and I both enjoyed, plus it was half off wine night. Good deal

We were catching a show at the Fillmore and looking for a nearby place to have dinner. We decided to try this place though we knew nothing of it and had never seen the menu. It turned out to be exactly what we wanted. The meals were great and not overpriced. We brought our own wine and had some of... More

A tiny place with a nice atmosphere with wonderful food and bargain prices, who could ask for more? We got their prix fixe--a leek-potato soup, trout with beurre blanc sauce, rice, and vegetables, and floating island meringue for dessert all for $15. And it was delicious!

We went to Alamo Square Seafood Grill with high expectations seeing all the great reviews here. But my wife and I were disappointed. While the server was very professional and helpful with a great attitude, and the ambiance was cozy, the seafood preparation was all miss and no hit. We started with the crispy calamari. The restaurant is quite small,... More

I don't visit often enough to improve their bottom line, but I truly do enjoy their preparation of seafood. This last visit I irdered the three-course fixed-price meal under $18 which included appetizer, fresh fish dish, and dessert. I also ordered A special shrimp ceviche dish that was very tasty and very plentiful. My dining companions Ordered a special French... More

What an adorable place. It is like walking into a French Bistro. And the prices are amazingly low. Where can you get a halibut dinner for $21? They had 5 fishes the night we went. You chose your fish and then chose grilled, poached, sauteed or blackened and then the sauce. It came with rice and a vegetable medley -... More

We had a wonderful dinner at the Alamo Square Seafood Grill. There were 9 of us. We ordered different entries and we were all very satisfied. The waitstaff was very helpful in advising us about the best options for each dish (which sauce, grilled or not, etc). Be sure to save room for a slice of the flourless chocolate cake.... More
