The Grill has all the trappings of a classic San Francisco grill but last night there were too many misses to make it a favorite. It was our first visit and the maitre'd sat us at two bad tables notwithstanding the many tables that were...More

Had dinner there last night before the opera. It's a shame this place isn't better, given its location. Service was very good. My entree (paella) was brought out cold. Send it back and got a hot one. Reallyt isn't a paella in the true definition....More

Hands down the best soft shell crab in the City (when it's available - typically during the summer months.) They used to call my father to let him know when they were in season, not I receive e-mails. (Technology) We've had soft shell crabs twice...More

This is the best seafood restaurant in San Francisco. If you are looking for a very trendy restaurant, with tiny portions and appetizers and entrees that look like they are gift wrapped art objects from a Paris boutique - look elsewhere. This restaurant serves real...More

I remember going to Hayes Street Grill in the 80's with my parents before the Symphony or opera. 30+ years later, I decided to take my husband there for dinner before a concert. We had reservations at 6:45 on a Thursday evening-enough time to eat...More

Wonderful fish! I eat fish but not seafood and HSG is perfect for me. The grilled halibut is delicious. Nothing fancy -- and not cheap -- but delicious. Grilled asparagus, yum! Our server seemed like he had been there too long (both in the sense...More

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
