Need Seafood Recomendation in SF

  • 6

I am heading to SF next week and need some recomendations on a great dinner spot for Seafood/Oysters. I have one night. So far I have these two as possible choices:

1) Bar Crudo

2) Hyde Street Seafood

As a ref. I last dined @ Canteen, Bar Tartine & Dottie’s Tru Blue Café about two years ago.

  1. What night? Some restaurants are closed on particular nights.

    Both are great choices and you could also throw Anchor & Hope in the mix for great seafood.

      Monday- Which I know is always tricky- Thanks for the sugguestion!

      1. re: LostApple

        Well, Bar Crudo is closed on Monday but both Anchor & Hope and Hyde Street Seafood is open. Anchor & Hope is definitely the most expensive of the bunch.

        I will also throw Alamo Square Seafood in the mix. They are always under radar, definitely not as fancy (or as expensive) as Anchor & Hope, but consistently good. They just don't have oysters, but you could walk up Fillmore to Woodhouse Fish for oysters. Also the Woodhouse Fillmore location has a lot more grilled offerings than their Castro version.

    2. Here's an idea. Both Hog Island Oyster Bar and La Mar Cebicheria are open on Mondays and both are at the Ferry Building. Hog Island has happy hour from 5 to 7 p.m. so you can get your oyster fix, then walk over to La Mar for some Peruvian fish dishes and a beautiful patio if you want to eat outside.

        Excellent idea. Thank you. QUick questions. Is that area pretty "Authentic" or "touristy" at that hour. I have done the fresh market and it was fine.

        1. re: LostApple

          The short answer is both. Both the farmer's market and the ferry building itself are rife with tourists who browse and get prepared foods (and things to take home) and locals who buy their groceries and meals there.
