Hyde Street Seafood House & Raw Bar

We went there because of all the good opinions we read, however were very disappointed. The restaurant is quite small and cosy from the inside, so if you want to go there, you should make a reservation - however read our review first. The service was very slow and took them very long to get us our drinks and food. We started with oysters which we could not complain about. However then we got our main course, dungeon crab, which costed USD 43. When I started with the crab, I discovered that the meat was of a very poor quality and looked very dried already. It seemed the crab was either laying around for a while or was warmed up. I called the waiter and complaint about my food not being fresh. However he just answered "yes it was fresh" and went away again without even looking at it - no further comment. This reaction showed me that I was right and he did not want to discuss about it, because he knew he was wrong. So I will never go to this place again.

tainly a good choice for a nice meal in a somehow romantic setting - be in the mood for it! The cable cars passing by, the lighting, the background noise from the kitchen blend nicely to distract a bit from the food. It's fresh sea food and it's good, albeit a bit too sugary for my taste. Compliments for the deserts - if they are indeed house-made as claimed they are truly and artfully excellent. Would I go back? Perhaps, but Iwould try

Loved this restaurant. After sampling several higher profile establishments on a recent trip to San Francisco, the local neighborhood feel of the Hyde Street Seafood House and food quality were a stand out. The house speciality, fish baked in parchment, is not to be missed -- very tender and moist. Also sampled the key lime pie which was a delicious, generous portion. Service was on target. I felt it was the best value on our trip.

I don't live in San Francisco, but travel here for business at least once a month. I actually make it a point to eat here on each and every visit! Atmosphere is warm and welcoming! Service is wonderful. The host and waitress is friendly and truly caring about her restaurant and the patrons who eat there. The fish (I love the halibut & the salmon), cooked in the parchment paper, with fresh vegetables is out of this world! By far, the best Boston clam chowder I have ever tasted! And if you have room for dessert (portions are huge, might be hard to do) go for the creme brulee, or the fresh pie, or ice cream (I know it's just vanilla ice cream, but it's really good, served with fresh baked cookies). I love this place!
