“Great Seafood Option in SF!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We were recommended the Woodhouse Fish Company by a friend and we were grateful for his tip as we were blown away from the simple well prepared dishes.

In the end we got great very fresh seafood without breaking the bank. Probably the best value meal during out time in San Francisco we agreed.

Aside from trying a wide selection of oysters, we also sampled some good crab chowder and for our main courses utterly devoured a dungeness crab sandwich and a lobster roll. Both were utterly huge portions, but for those of you who are dying to eat a whole family of lobsters in one setting, we were told that you can also order a double portion of meat stuffed into the same roll for a slight bump in price.

The neighborhood is quite tranquil and a bit upscale, while the restaurant itself is simply decorated and immaculately clean. Meanwhile, the staff were also polite and offered very quick service despite the place being packed.

All around, this is a no frills wonderful option if you are just looking for some good bites and friendly for both couples and families alike. Will definitely recommend it to friends.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

Staying at the Hotel Kabuki and wanted to find the closet seafood place. Only a short walk on Fillmore but pay attention as it is easy to walk by.
I had read some good reviews here on the Cioppino and was not disappointed. Get there early or you will wait.

“Impressive and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

Had a great dinner of Clam chowder, Ipswich clams and Lobster roll. What a surprise, everything was delicious. The fried clams were large and cooked to perfection, better preparation that the Legal Seafood back east. The service was exceptional and the place was very busy. Could not have had a better experience!

“Amazing lobster-roll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

Went there for a work lunch yesterday; we enjoyed it so much it completely changed our day, which became much less of a work-day and more about talking about the lobster-roll in this very cool joint!

“Seafood us inlanders were craving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We were visiting from Nashville where good, fresh seafood isn't plentiful. We found this restaurant using Siri as we were walking around San Francisco. Decided to try it and were so happy. My husband got the cioppino and I got the lobster roll. YUM! Oh man, my mouth is watering as I type this remembering that meal. Would definitely make a point of eating here again if we ever get back to San Francisco!
