Diner Reviews
  • "This was our fourth time dining at Fish and Farm, and despite some of the other reviews, we have always had a good dining experience. The food is tasty and it's a good spot to bring visitors from out of town (we live in the neighborhood). They also have a great room for private dining."

  • "I'm a regular at this place and I honestly can't say enough good things. The staff is INCREDIBLE to me. Michael the manager always makes me feel very welcome, as does the rest of the staff. They're extremely kind and knowledgeable about the food and where it comes from (something that is very important to me). The chef is an amazing man, also. I'd recommend the pork chop, the steak, the goat cheese galette, the risotto, and the mussels (I'm partial to the Bretonne preparation). I know that's a lot of items to recommend, but seriously - none of those would disappoint. Even finicky eaters would love it. The wine list is fabulous, too. There aren't many things I would steer potential customers away from. The place is the best. My favorite."

  • "We were seated immediately, no waiting, a plus in my book. Chef Soto came out and introuced himself, we complimented him on his wonderful cuisine. Great service, good food, good wine list. We will return."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "I've had - and made - better versions of these dishes. We had salmon & vegetable risotto. Meh. Host and server weren't friendly at all. They delivered the bare basics of service."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "I was looking forward to Fish and Farm, but the experience was less than great. The hostess/waitress was rude and seemed to genuinely hate her job. For a San Francisco restaurant, the bread was terrible - did they get it at Safeway? We ordered two appetizers - the crab cakes and the crispy artichoke salad. They didn't give us plates, so we had to use our tiny bread plates. The crab cakes were good, but the arugula and asparagus salad that came with it was not dressed, making it dry and bitter. The crispy asparagus was good, but the dressing seemed to be olive oil and Kraft Parmesan cheese. I could have made it at home. We had the salmon and the burger - burger was alright, as was the salmon, but wasn't memorable. Overall, not worth it."

  • "The fried chicken and pork chop were fantastic. Top 3 pork chops that I've ever eaten."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "I had the pork chop and it was truly outstanding; cooked to perfection."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Salmon was cooked perfectly but the sauce tasted a bit like flour still, needed to cook for another minute or two. The fried chicken is another customer favorite, but didn't stand out compared to other fried chicken. The "hot sauce butter" was just that - tasted like Frank's in melted butter. The hand crafted cocktails were outstanding. I loved the Tea Chicago Style! Overall, it was good - not bad, but not great."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Our entrees were delicious but the artichoke salad was unremarkable and the bread and butter tasted of the refrigerator. Our waitress was friendly but the service was not good--drinks came out at various times, 10-30 minutes after ordering, simple requests like a napkin had to be repeated."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "But it seems like the prices for all items went up :o("
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Lobby renovation at 8 pm on a Friday night? Bar removed from restaurant and was narrow and cramped. Worse, the bar was between the kitchen and the restaurant and waiters and construction people had to squeeze between patrons and the waiters seemed irritated about that. The bartender mumbled and when we thought he wanted our drink order, he tersely put us off to wait on someone else. Our waiter was not very friendly and not that attentive to detail. Our appetizer was burned and our meal took over an hour to prepare and because of this, we had to wolf it down to make our 10 pm show. Not good, we won't be back."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We waited for 10 minutes after our reservation time to be seated, then waited 15 minutes after being seated for a waiter to show up. We finally gave up and left."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Nothing particularly special about this place. Service was attentive but missed obvious things like serving everyone a large bowl of mussels in broth with no serving spoon or individuals plates or bowls. Food was good but not worth overall price for the meal."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Downtown San Francisco on a Saturday night was crazy. I had family from out of town and this was a gem of a find. Quite so we could catch up with each other without shouting. Food was wonderful, and the other guests at the restaurant enjoyed the low key atmosphere as well."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The fried chicken and the mussels were excellent. They have a great scotch selection as well. Good dinner."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I hoped I would find a more imaginative menu. The food was fine, nothing exciting. But, their coffee was wonderful."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "above average food, prk chop was very good-- a bit expensive but great service- smallish restaurant space--intimate but a little dull"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "We were staying at the Hilton across and wanted something less traveled. It's menu is small but he choices were spot on. The food was good and prices reasonable."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "made a reservation here for 4 adults and 3 young children. My friends arrived first & were very intimidated, expecting that our 3 young children or our casual attire were going to get us turned away. The staff actually gave us our own, sealed-off room. It was perfect. The kids could runa round and be loud, we could relax and enjoy each other and our food. we were so stoked and appreciative."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Excellent fish and wonderful service made this restaurant an instant 'we'll return soon'. Downtown location in a hotel made us worried, but we found it un-touristy and really a great place for the theater."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We tried Fish and Farm before heading to the Curran for a show. The food was excellent and the service top notch. My son had the Fried Chicken--just like Mom used to make and I had the Salmon which was excellent. We will eat here again. Just a short walk to the show! I was glad I had a reservation. They were crowded as we left."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Excellent food and service. The food is well-conceived, with the true flavors of the fish or meat not overwhelmed with a muddle of flavors, as is the case with some restaurants nowadays. Subtle sauces enhance the flavors of very fresh fish and meat. Service is attentive without being overwhelming - kind of like the food."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Extremely fresh, well-prepared local ingredients. Intimate setting. Never had a bad meal here."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "It's unfortunate that more people don't give this restaurant a try. The food was good and the wait staff was eager. The starters were AMAZING! The main courses were good, but not as good as the starters. The grillled calamari salad is a must have!"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Really a disgraceful restaurant. poor food, empty place, strange service. The wait staff tried but really did not know how to serve..We were very disappointed and will not return."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "This place has potential and I guess once it was good, but the food was really quite bad. I don't want to be mean as the staff were lovely. Maybe it was a bad night...."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Great food and our servers were nice. slightly pricey drinks but overall great experience."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "We needed a place to meet family members from the East Bay and the peninsula. I gambled on Open Table and we were delighted. The cornbread which accompanied the delicious fried chicken was so e of the best ever."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "The service was very, very slow - almost got up and walked - felt the description thru Open Table was totally exaggerated - food was over priced - even for San Francisco"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Very good pre-theater dinner , convenient to ACT. My companion had moules marinieres & frites, with count 'em, 48 moules in the portion! I had roasted cod, perfectly cooked, with a great sauce and lovely veggies. Not inexpensive, but worth the money. I will go back again. Good service, pleasing decor, tucked into the Mark Twain hotel, nice ambience, quiet enough for conversation, put this into a good find category. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "When we arrived, the place was empty. That should have been our first clue to leave, but we thought we'd give it a try anyway. We started with two drinks, which took about 10 minutes to get, in an empty restaurant. Appetizer where good, but the main course still needed a chefs flare. I had the New York Strip, which had a lot of grissle and was covered in a sauce that overwhelmed the flavor of the beef. A $27 dish and I left half. I don't recommend this place. "
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "very solid food, from a small menu (which i like). service was friendly and fast. we were there for a business meeting, others seemed to be tourists from the hotel upstairs. good for either group, but not a hip or romantic spot"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "My husband and I dined here for date night. I am on a no-grain and no-sugar diet, and I was able to find a few dishes off the menu that suit my needs. The raw oysters were fresh, but the calamari salad hit us at the right spot. My pan-roasted rock cod was cooked perfectly. My husband enjoyed his cioppino and Scotch. The place is small, the tables are placed close together. It would've been nice if I didn't have to eavesdrop on neighboring patrons. The servers were a little rough on the edges on their waiting skills, but were very polite. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The wait staff was indifferent. We asked for a booth (most of them were empty), and were told it would be a 30 minute wait for those. It was a date. We were then seated between other tables, face-to-face, interview style with no privacy. After we had finished the meal, we both noticed the booths had never been occupied that evening. That, and never a smile from any of the staff. We won't be going back."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "We all ordered a different dish. Everyone was happy with their dinner. The scallops were cooked to perfection, appetizer mussels were tasty and fresh. We had the apple tart and molten chocolate cake. Tart was very good, the cake was a miss. Would go again. Neighborhood is sketchy. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Fish and Farm is a small room with 11 tables. It's part of the Mark Twain hotel. One waitress was responsible for the entire room except for one table which was served by several people. The "special table". The rest of the room was left alone except when necessary to plop down your food. We felt sorry for the overwhelmed waitress who seemed to be doing her best to take care of the rest of the room. The food was average. We though the fish either frozen or a lower grade or both. We won't return. This was my worst review yet for opentable."
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "If you like a relaxed meal, this might be the place for you. Food was good, but menu was somewhat limited (only artichoke or calamari salad, no more basic salad) and service seemed inattentive for a not very crowded night"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "I was dining alone and was asked to sit in the bar when there were many empty tables in the dining room. The dining room would have been much more comfortable."
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "very nice guy who served us, but he appeared to be the only one!!! We waited quite a long time to be served/order taken/wine brought to table, but the food here is good and (for some) may be worth the wait."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "Kind of hidden away in the hotel, it was defintely worth finding. The best seafood I have had in years! The waitstaff were phenomenal!"
