One of the oldest restaurants around, and it stays to true to form. Great calamari and the classic hangtown fry.

A Classic – Althought this is one of the oldest SF restaurants, I suggest only order the crab salad or the petrale sole...but it is still worth a visit.

Go to Tadish for a radish at the bar but leave for lunch or dinner – My family has been going there for 60 years or so . There was a 45 minute wait, expected and no where to wait, I had prime rib which could only be called poor roast beef in my book , it was tough and had the grizzle going through each of the 3 slices . My sister had curry crab and had so much curry it could have been calimari and you wouldn'y know the difference. Our second waiter was a punk right out of my Mission District days who seemed irritated we were still there for desert and when only one order was placed threw the plate in the middle of the table and even though no one asked threw 4 forks down as well and said "share it" sarcastically. I have had better Prime Rib at "Little Henrys" on Larkin street . Do yourself your pride and your wallet a favor and stay away from this institution .

Fresh seafood, history, a bit of brusque – Tadich Grill is my kind of place, as its waiters dress and act like New York waiters, serves fresh seafood, and has a history.

The "twins" that aray26 heard remarked upon were surely not the breasts of a well-endowed woman but rather the famous Brown twins - Google them on Wikipedia - as we sat next to them last night, and my girlfriend now has a nice little snapshot of her flanked by these petite San Francisco celebritie lit by the glare of Tadich Grill lamps.

We only had the Tadich Platter - a seafood antipasto with two oysters, two shrimp, a little crab, portions of herring and smoked salmon, anchovies, calamari, tomato, and...avocado (!) - but it was all very, very fresh. At $21.00, it's a very reasonable value.

Tadich Grill is a true San Francisco institution - and has been for 150 years. – Tadich Grill is a true San Francisco institution. It still looks, feels and tastes the same as when I first visited there in the 60s during college, 70s for business, and 80s just for great food. The restaurant reflects the unique fun and historic experience that is San Francisco, drawing heavily on its Gold Rush roots.



It is an eccentric place, that much is true. But this 150-year-old, continuously open restaurant serves some of the best Seafood anywhere. Located in the financial district, Tadich Grill almost always has a line during prime time, takes no reservations, has waiters who some consider abrasive, looks like it is from the past, and is not cheap.

That being said, don?t miss it! There's a good reason it has been around for so long. Its unequalled charm and excellent food keep people coming back decade after decade.

As it was Allyn?s birthday, we each started with a Bloody Mary which was as good as it gets. Their San Francisco sourdough bread is such a treat, that it is served in restaurants all over town. My clam chowder and crab salad was superb, and her smoked trout was terrific.

Oldest Clip Joint in San Francisco: For Suckers only – Went in recently, been there a few times. Used to be damned good, but now it's all over. Foul food, served by doped up robots who know nothing about decent food or service and care less. Bring on the next earthquake and be sure you are dining elsewhere.

this is a great place for fish. i really like it a lot. the line out the door can put people off, but for me that only shows you what a special place this is. I really like it a lot. I will come back many many times.
