We were met on the side walk by an employee with encourage my , we were greeted promptly with a smile the food was served promptly, service was good, food was only fair as the sole was served partially raw, but was recoiled. We will try another next te as it was only fair over all.

The service was awful, it was very late, our table was all wobbly and the waiters did not do anything to fix it once this was brought to their attention.

I had to ask repeatedly for a refill on my drink, our food arrived after a long wait and it wasn't even hot, in terms of its quality, it was so so and lacked flavor.

Finally when we got the check they had already added a 15% gratuity to it. I do tip but I also believe that tipping should be in accordance witht he services received, specially if the tip is not included in the price to begin with


All in all this has been one of my worst experiences at a restaurant.

Save yourself from all this and go to a different place, you can do a lot better on Fisherman's wharf

I'm surprised at the good reviews this place received. We sat inside. The service was decent, but all the food was incredibly sandy and overall subpar. I was disappointed and feel as though I got robbed.

it's located behind several touristy stalls selling crab etc, once inside I was greeted and quickly shown to a table. My order was taken and was served a basket of fresh bread while I waited. The food arrived hot and flavourful, service quick and polite. If you want a simple meal with local charm I would recommend this restaurant.

OMG, this place is so yummy, we were in San Fran for 6 days & we ate there 4 times. I cant even put into words how good the food is there.
The staff are wonderful too, great service and the person looking after your table makes sure that your satisfied and that your happy with everything.
I wont start to tell u what we ate, as we tried so many things on the menu but the thing i noticed on every table in the place was a bowl of their famous clam chowder & sour dough bread, it is awesome to say the least. If you go to San Fran & don`t try this you are doing yourself a great injustice.
The prices were great value & the meals were huge, also the drinks were cheaper than anywhere else we went. Do yourself a favor & check this place out.. YUMMO
