Opted for this gem at the north end of the Embarcadero. Not fancy, but outstanding seafood both on the menu and daily fresh selections. If available, the Black gill cod is an excellent choice! Traditional fish and chips are tops also. Worth the walk to...More

It's difficult to differentiate between Tognazzini's Main Dockside Restaurant and the adjacent Tognazzini's No. 2 Dockside. I recalled having dined at Todnazzini's about 5 years ago and it was good but the No. 2, next door, is not great. The clam chowder was good and...More

This has always been a good choice for seafood and have taken my family here many times. On 8/6/17 I had dinner here with my family. My wife and I ordered one of the fish of the day specials "Macho Shark". After a long wait...More
