Amazing seafood! The best cioppino in the world! Be prepared to wait though. Our party of 4 arrived at 7pm on a Wednesday and weren't seated until aftwr 8pm. Still worth it! GooglePlace - July 2017

Food is great there if you like seafood as they don't have much else. Not a lot of choices but they are all pretty good. The service is good. Reasonable prices given the fresh seafood. Large portions. The biggest downside is there is usually a long wait for a table during dinner times weekday or weekend. GooglePlace - July 2017

When I googled oyster bar, this is one of it that pop up on my search. So we've decided to head there. When we arrived, its around 2:30pm the restaurant is busy. We ordered the fresh oysters and also the steam shellfish combination. I can say, my whole USA trip, this is one of the best seafood restaurant worth visiting. We didn't ordered alot but the steam shellfish combination is worth ordering. If i am back in San Francisco again, I will RETURN! GooglePlace - June 2017

By far my favorite restaurant in SF. I have been a steady patron since 1988. All the food is fresh and to order. The staff is friendly, excellent and most are long time employees. If you are looking for the SF people use to know this is it. If you are looking for the new and horrible thing SF has turned into, sorry it is not here. This is a simple great small place if friendly people and great food. It is best to eat here early or at odd hours. In the PM you got to wait. Find a less busy time to make the experience best Oh yeah when finished eating don't linger... people are hungry and waiting for your seat. GooglePlace - May 2017

When in San Francisco, eat seafood... This place is little and can get packed very quickly even on a week day and at times when you didn't even know anyone could eat! We tried the crab cake entree and the steamed shellfish combination. Both were good though not amazingly good that I would rave about it. The food was very (very!) garlic-y (in a "don't-open-your-mouth-you-might-kill-someone" way!) and the service was dismissive at best. Overall, we found it was really overpriced for the experience. Don't worry, we'll try other seafood places while here! GooglePlace - March 2017
