Loved the atmosphere, the free wine during the wait and the great seafood. Main bummer was that there were not any vegetarian entrees. Not a single one. The “entree” ended up being a huge broccoli stalk. I know this is a well known and well...More

Great evening spent with family. Started queuing before doors opened at 5 and we were welcomed by the owner with a glass of wine. Long wait but was worth it to eat such fresh fish. Huge portions meant good value for money (ask for a...More

Been coming here for many years, and it is one of the most consistent that I can always count on. I bring relatives and friends here, especially those who like the free wine they serve while you wait. They do not take reservations, so I...More

Wonderfull Food in very nice and cosy athmosphere. Ottimo cibo in gradevole e tipico ambiente. Go at opening at 17.00 otherwise you risk to not find place. Vai all'apertura alle 17.00 altrimenti non trovi posto. Very reasonable prices. Prezzi molto contenuti

We visited on a Monday night but the restaurant is still very crowed, mostly filled with locals but we were served with free flow of white/red wine while waiting. The entrees are quite big with soup / salad and side dishes. The salad is very...More

We recently ate at the Pacific Café on Geary and had a satisfyingly good (maybe not great by SF standards, but local, healthy and tasty) meal. It had been nearly a couple decades since we last ate there (we used to go somewhat often when...More

We were at Ocean Beach Park and Googled, "seafood restaurants nearby". This one came up (although it wasn't that "nearby" - but we had Muni Passes, so it was easy to take the bus). It's a very cute, neighborhood restaurant (more of a neighborhood institution,...More

The one nice thing is that they are always busy after they open so they give you a glass of wine while you wait. The waiting area is small and a few chairs outside. Parking can be a challenge. The salmon was good but not...More

I prefer more challenging food, but it is fine for what it is. Better than the Red Lobster and Arthur Treachers.

Visited midweek around 7pm and had at most a 10 minute wait to be seated. Service was outstanding, food was delicious, with generous portions cooked to perfection. Declined dessert but they brought a us a sample anyway to encourage us next time!

Oh I am so sorry to tell you that they are only open for dinner. They open at 5 pm. And I believe part of the fun is drinking wine on line while you wait your turn to be seated. No reservations. Hope you get to go... More

This all depends on when crab season is allowed to open. Last year it was months late. Here is the latest news story on it: It will not allow me to send you a link to the story. Please search crab season & San Francisco... More
