I really wanted this place to be good but it wasn’t really very good at all. Fresh fried calamari and shrimp was not great. The batter was dry, hard and tasteless - simply no seasoning or any kind of flavour at all from the seafood...More

Had the dungeness cioppino and a nice glass of Chianti. It was amazing. From the fish and shellfish to the half crab. Messy, fun and delicious. So worth it. Will be back. Thank you.

Family of 5 visit. Table not available until 15 mins after we’d booked. Generally felt unforgotten and whilst food was OK, it’s definitely up to the level described in other reviews - which was what attracted us in the first place. There are loads of...More

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
