“great little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

I went there with two other guys an a sunday evening. We had a table reservation but there were enough free tables for people without a reseration. The service was made by only one guy who was not so much too friendly like they are usualy in us - restaurants and he made his job really good.
The food was exzellent. Sure, there are better restaurants but not in the same or close by price categories. The serving sizes especially the appetizers were very good. We had fried calamari, escargots and and a salad with schrimp and avocado and everbody was surprised at the good taste and the serving-sizes.
The interior is plainly and not overloaded with decoration.
It is a very nice small restaurant to have real good food and a cozy evening with friends. Wish it was in my neighborhood

“A Great Find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

We were jet lagged and worn out from our first day in San Francisco. We wanted seafood, but didn't want to fight the crowds at Fisherman's Wharf nor deal with the long waits on North Beach. We did a little research and found this restaurant, a 5 minute cab ride from our hotel.

This is a small restaurant, with tasteful wine-centric decorations and intimate seating. It has a pretty small menu featuring 5 different fishes, cooked however you choose and with whatever topping you choose.

Our table had blackened Red Snapper, Mussels w/chorizo and the special of bay scallops, caulifornia risotto and asparagus. All we cooked to perfection and simply wonderful!!!

Our service was excellent and fun.

We had great meals and great times here at the Alamo. Definitely a do-over!!!!

“Delightful meal and cozy atomosphere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2012

The menu was original and fresh and value priced. Service was a bit slow and the space is tight, but this is a perfect place for neighborhood regulars.
