Small middle of the block in a quiet neighborhood family run restaurant. Short menu ensures that everything is fresh. Our dinner experience was fantastic, start with salmon platter and pear spinach salad. Shrimp rissotto and steak (yeah I know) were fantastic and prepared just right. Wine and beer served well priced. Make reservation or be there when the door opens... More

We visited the Alamo Square Seafood Grill because it was close to our accommodation and because of its high ratings. Although we had a good time, it was not an evening that merited a "5" rating. Food was tasty, but not inspired, and the steak on the menu (offered as an option for non-pescatarians) was overcooked. That said, this place... More

We were excited to try this place out. We showed up early for our reservation, she (the host?) rudely told me she would not be able to seat us until 10 min before reservation. That would have been fine, but they had a ton of tables open, no one was waiting, and it was the way she said it! I... More

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.
