THE BOMB... EVERYTHING ABOUT IT – When I want an excellent overall dining experince this is where I go... hands down. I was blown out of the water on my last time there. The special that evening was tuna with seared foie gras and risotto... it was absolutely sublime (and under twenty dollars). How do they stay in business. Service was very friendly and informative... although it was busy I was never rushed. The ambiance is cozy and relaxed.

fun little bistro – This is my third time eating at the Alamo Seafood Grill and the experience great, from the Service to the Food. Mind you they are a little understaffed in the dining room, but the Host/server handles it with the greatest of ease. I highly recommend trying it for yourself.

Rude service – I would love to love this restaurant. The location, ambience and value are good. But the almost hostile manner of the host/owner ruin the experience, and I won't go back. Last time I was there, service was so slow and downright rude, that my party and the table next to us left without even ordering.

Consistantly Great – We have been here more than once, and each time it has been suberb. The food, wine, deserts are all excellent. And the prices are quite reasonable for San Francisco.

Classy but inexpensive – Alamo sqaure is a perfect place to go, when you are in a mood to do something classy, yet very inexpensive. In this cozy bistro located in the corner of Fillmore and Grove, you are always greeted with a friendly smile and are promptly seated. The server makes sure that you couple the food the right way, with excellent wine and great food. Friday night seemeed pretty busy, but the server tried his best to reach out to everyone. The kitchen crew seemed kneen on customer service, and made sure that everyone was taken care of.

Great food, but better get it to go... – A group of us went one night after work and thought we'd enjoy some great seafood. Luckily for us, we enjoyed each other's company because service was abysmal. If it were completely full the small, quaint seating areas could only accomodate 25-30 diners...but it was only our group of 4 and 2 other couples. Our waiter was lost somewhere in the back room or just didn't care. The food however, was excellent. As the reviews say, they keep it simple...several types of fish served several types of ways with a bunch of sautees to choose from. They also have a fantastic chicken and spinach dish. The blackened Ahi and recommended pepper crust was quite good.

I've done carry out there several times and that seems like the best bet. But I'll be fair and give the dine in experience one more attempt.

Enjoy...

A Blown Second Chance – I've eaten at Alamo Square twice now. The first time was back in '01 when I lived around the corner and took my girlfriend there for a spontaneous romantic dinner. The ambiance was great for a small intimate dinning experience. However, I was not impressed with the slow, smart-ass service from the waiter and the food was nothing to write home about.

After recently eating there again, not much has changed in 4 years. This time I waited for 1 1/2 hours for our luke warm entries, which again, was nothing to write home about. I left feeling bad for the waitress who was overwhelmed with dinner requests, but I cheered up quickly when I realized Ill never be back. Save your time and money and go else where.

Horrible – After being seated promptly for a 7:30 dinner, all went down hill. Wine was served promptly, but it took an extra 10 minutes to get wine glasses for the whole table, then it took an hour to get appetizers on the table. And oops, they forgot to put in our order for one of them, so we waited an hour for less food than we requested. The entrees came out about 15-20 minutes later and were very mediocre. Many parties of two that got in after us completed their meals before we had our entrees. Someone in our party commented to our server about the level of service and the server informed us that the restaurant operators don't believe it's necessary to have more than one server. Mind you, the dining room was packed with 50-60 people. Save your money, save your time, eat elsewhere.

Be Prompt! – This was one of our favorite restaurants to take out of town guests to for San Francisco seafood, but now it's off the list! After being 7 minutes late for a reservation the host decided to seat walk-ins instead of our confirmed table of four. He then promised to seat us in 10-15 minutes. After 20 minutes he again promised seating in another 10-15 minutes. Needless to say we left and won't be back. Too bad his poor judgement lost him longtime customers and our frequest guests!

Homey Western Addition joint serving fish at bargain prices. – The Scene
This romantic neighborhood gem is nestled on an unassuming block and draws alert eyes with strings of white Christmas-style lights out front. Inside, a loft-like window peers onto the gold and red dining room--half occupied by a semi-exposed kitchen, the remainder features padded banquettes atop a checkered floor. Waitstaff will pour bargain glasses of wine to the rim, but service may be slow.

The Food
French-influenced seafood is the specialty. The lightly breaded, greaseless crab cakes are the restaurant's signature dish (available as a starter or entree), while the mussels deserve praise: a heaping order arrives with dozens of tender morsels swimming in a delectable white-wine broth. For the main course, several half-pound fishes are cooked and dressed to the diner's specifications--for example, poached wild salmon can be draped with tangy beurre or grilled red snapper paired with chunky provencale sauce.
