My wife and I ate here on a Sunday evening after trying several other restaurants in the area. We just wanted somewhere relatively cheap for a simple meal. The cheaper places were all full and we didn't want fine dining or pub food, so ended...More

We had crayfish stew, sausage and beans and fried oyster sandwich (and a couple of cocktails). All ok but not outstanding. The service was a little cold on arrival but our waitress was very nice and helpful with the menu. We read that this place...More

We have been wanting to try this place the past two times we came to the City and finally had our opportunity. We mentioned this to the waiter and he stated that this will most probably be our last time as well. The restaurant is...More

My husband and I used to stop by this place before we head to Davies symphony hall. It's only 2 blocks way. Price is above average. Doesn't have a large menu. Service could be slow.

Happy hour was great at Boxing room, they offers half price for selected oyster & sparkling wine. Good to try the hush puppies but too much flour. Nice restaurant deco & oyster bar counter.

I am a sazerac lover. We stumbled on the Boxing Room quite by accident. It is a great bar that includes a seafood bar as well. Very competent bartenders, and very friendly. We got there a bit ahead of the after-work rush, so we were...More

The food was pretty good, the atmosphere was pretty good, not too loud, not too crowded. It seems like it's a popular place before shows as it was quite packed when I initially passed by, but once 7:30 came around, it emptied out. I'd recommend...More

A good place prior to a show, or for happy hour, the food and service are pretty good. Portions large enough to share - the gumbo for example comes in 2 sizes and even the small portion for $10 will be sharable for 2 (and...More

Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to
imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of
a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation
of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a

businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish
respite.
