We only had one night in San Fran and in the past this was our favorite restaurant.
We had oh, so slow service and mediocre food. Veggies were cooked long before they were served. Fish was fresh but just that with no sauce to accent it. A

Always so much fun, meeting new people from all over the world. Usually a wait, but half the fun giving you the opportunity to talk to people.
The Manager Rick is warm, welcoming and always makes you feel like you're the most important

Best place for Seafood in San Francisco!! The fish is always fresh and the patrons are always fun and lively. Start out at the bar with Tadich's famous bloody mary and raw oysters. Everything on the menu is excellent and the staff is exceptional!!

The Tadich Grill won't be on any top ten dining lists in SF, but is hard to go wrong with this SF classic. The confident and charming wait staff will not disappoint whether you choose to have appetizers and drinks at the bar or sit down for a meal (try the pot pie!). This was my great uncle Lou's favorite restaurant over 50 years ago and it still shines. The Tadich Grill is truly a worthy dining experience.

Not for the hipster crowd, the Tadich Grill is an old-fashioned, back to basics, excellent restaurant.

From the darling neon sign out front, to the elegant wood panelled interior, to the crusty but charming waiters in their white jackets, you'll feel as though you've stepped back in time, but here that's a good thing.

Stick with the basics and you can't go wrong. PS - no reservations here so go early or expect a long wait.

This place is a classic SF Restaurant. The food is great and the prices are decent. The seating is cool because it is bar style with stools. This is a great place to come to for either lunch or dinner.
