Food was excellent, service pretty slow. Verrrrry long delay between appetizers and entrees, but to their credit were perfectly cooked. Had grilled salmon, calamari appetizer, and also a salad on the specials menu, and you probably would be in good shape ordering just about anything here.

This is not the place you go in a hurry. But if you have time to linger and want a great meal, you should try it. Get reservations! The server took all the orders and then served the restaurant on his own. It is that intimate. He was patient and friendly but very efficient. Our food was fantastic. Moist fish... More

A must-visit restaurant whenever I'm in town. A small dining area with big time entrees. The fish entrees have always been moist and flavorful. Although "seafood" is in their name, I've enjoyed extremely well prepared steak and chicken dishes. If your on a strict budget, inquire about their diner specials from 5:30pm to (I think) 7pm. Make a reservation and... More

We had a lovely meal here. We booked online beforehand which I'd recommend. There seemed to be around 4 tables waiting to be seated for the entire time we were there - it gets busy so booking ahead is definately a plan. Slow service unfortunately as there simply isn't enough staff so be prepared to wait. We'd go back but... More

Visited this restaurant after searching out fellow trip advice and we were not disappointed. The tuna was cooked to perfection with nice flavors. The atmosphere is quiet and romantic and we enjoyed a bottle of wine. Sadly a fly ruined this for us but overall our experience was pleasant.

This is an intimate restaurant and as the name suggests serves seafood. There are a number of choices how you would like to have your fish prepared as well as the type of fish. The staff were friendly and attentive to your needs.

This seafood restaurant was recommend by friends. It is in a nice neighborhood close to the famous "painted ladies" Victorian homes on Alamo square. Several of us had the pre fix dinner which was a great deal. We bought our own wine and the corkage was not bad. I think they were training people as we had to ask for... More

This was my first visit . Food was ok. There were some gaps in the service. Wait staff seemed like they were in training. Had to keep asking for items that should have been noticed. Pre fix is a deal , but wine will definitely add to the cost. Not sure what the corkage fee was.

Great food and not very expensive. We both had the prix fixe dinner, including soup or salad, trout with rice and mixed vegetables, and a meringue dessert. It was interesting, delicious, and $14.95. The news must be out because it was crowded at 6:15 on a Sunday night. Reservations are available through Open Table.
