“Small and delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We were staying in Deboce Triangle and decided to roam around a bit for a place to have a bite. We spotted the fish sign and agreed some seafood might be just the thing. Upon entering, we realized how tiny the place is: maybe eight tables and four or five seats at the bar. We were greeted immediately upon entering by a friendly and efficient hostess who wrote our names on the blackboard, informed us of the approximate length of the wait, and offered to bring us a drink while we waited. It was so worth the wait! As we perused the dishes being enjoyed by the other patons, the decision of what to eat became more difficult. We finally decided on the artichoke and shrimp dish, along with the fish and chips. Both were fabulous, and the wedges of bread that came with the artichoke dish were absolutely amazing. Of less note were the fries that were shoestring rather than the thicker, traditional fries that normally accompany fish and chips. The fish tacos, and the cioppoino on a neighbor's plate looked like dishes for our next visit. We could not order dessert - too full.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We were looking for a great seafood restaurant by Fisherman's Wharf, although none stood out to us. In looking for highly-rated ones on Tripadvisor, we stumbled across one that ironically was right near our rented townhouse by Duboce Park. Incredible! I had perhaps the best Cioppino I even had in my life -- packed with tons of fresh fish, particularly dungeness crab. It was a feast. All of our other dishes were great and I they paid attention to presentation. I'd recommend the Arnold Palmer as a drink as they bring a glass half full of fresh squeezed lemon and bring you containers of fresh brewed tea and simple syrup to mix to your liking. Service was exemplary!

“Happy hour oysters and much more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Went to this place based on a recommendation and it was awesome! They have $1 oysters on tuesdays and it was really good! I had a dungeness crab melt which was fresh and yummy. We came in about 5 pm which was good timing because we got seated right away.. It is a cozy place so it fills up pretty quickly! Would love to go back and try more of their menu!

“Wonderful Fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Not a big place, so there can be a line out the door, but the wait is so worth it.
Excellent fish + fries, lobster rolls, clam roll and oysters.
The entrees are always wonderful, fresh fish, some pasta, great eating.
Wine and beer only.
Come dive into some of the best seafood in SF!
