So I’ve been living in San Francisco most of my life time, and never been to this place. It’s hailed as the top must try seafood places in the nation, so I finally decided to try it. I had to wait in line with the Japanese tourists in the cold weather 10 o'clock in the morning freezing my butt! After a good 45 minutes wait, we finally got 2 seats at the bar while my hubby and son waited standing next to us. The two gents next to us were almost done and waiting for check so they were gracious enough to empty their seats for our other half of the fam and continued to wait for their check while standing. The service here is the pits! I’m willing to overlook that if the food lived up to the hype. Well let me tell you, we ordered a lot more dishes than we should have...I posted only one decent dish (oyster) and one horrendous (sea urchin) and the rest don’t even deserve to be on here...their clam chowder was greasy and watered down, their crabs were ok, their shrimp cocktail was just not good. My kids who are clean freaks did NOT like their counters at all! The servers spill the water when serving so the counters were all wet and dirty from the previous customers and they give you water that has some stuff floating in it which we didn’t dare touch. This place is not worth 5 min wait. What a disappointment!! And what’s with the near 5 star rating on Yelp?? Come on people! Have you not had great seafood in your lives??
