A word from Hyde Street Seafood House & Raw Bar
The Hyde Street Seafood House specializes in 'En Papillote' cooking, a traditional French technique of baking in parchment paper. Julienned vegetables, fresh herbs, white wine, and a selection of fresh seafood are wrapped in parchment paper and baked to perfection, sealing in the food's natural flavors and juices.Continued
Diner Reviews
  • "Lobster bisque, seafood salad, stuffed prawns, and sea scallops. Absolutely fresh fine dining. Great recipes, great variety. Can't wait til I return for another fine meal."

  • "We come to this restaurant every time we visit San Francisco because the fish cooked in parchment paper is a house specialty and it is a MUST!!! It is a moist, flavorful preparation of fish on a bed of seasoned veggies. You can choose between salmon, snapper and a couple of other fresh fish choices. You can't go wrong with any of them. It is the best seafood you will ever have. The raw bar is also excellent if you like oysters. The prices for this incredible food are ridiculously reasonable."

  • "Service was pretty good, made some nice wine recommendations, disappeared a bit at the end but overall not bad. The food was not that great. Everything seemed to lack flavor and seasoning. We had the mussels which had a sauce that seemed watered down, not much flavor going on. The mussels themselves were fresh and plump so that was a plus. Also the stuffed prawns were not as advertised. The menu says they are stuffed with scallops, lobster, crab meat and shrimp. They only came with crab meat, possibly some lobster shredded and mixed in there too, but no scallops or shrimp. The potatoes were dry and the steak was under-seasoned. All in all not horrible but not great. I would return for happy hour oysters and drinks but not for dinner."

  • "Wonderful good, great peaceful atmosphere in a hectic world. Family owned with attentive service. Neat little palace and I would recommend highly. If you want a peaceful meal with great service and atmosphere this is it."

  • "Stumbled upon this gem through Siri; my wife and I were completely satisfied with the excellent service and outstanding seafood. What we also loved about this place was the seafood education they provided. They will tell you all about the different types of seafood they have and how they pair with the wines they provide."

  • "Came here for Valentines Day. We were handed a holiday menu of pre fixed selections, three courses for a fixed price of $62 pp, no regular menu offered. I ordered surf and turf, my son ordered the seabass. Salads were subpar, Steak was a subpar piece of meat, tasteless and undercooked. When I cut into it the blood soaked into the bland mashed potatoes, gross! The lobster tail was size of shrimp. Son's meal was delivered but the preparation lacked flavor. For dessert, key lime pie, nothing special nor was chocolate soufflé. No coffee offered. The food tasted precooked and slapped on plates. No regard to quality. They made a lot of money but also lost a lot of new and future customers as a result."

  • "Made reservations for Valentines Day and there was a fixed menu. We both ordered the surf and turf, filet Mignon and lobster tail. The meal literally tasted as if they stuck a plate in the microwave and had instant mashed potatoes. 150.00 later I could make the statement that it was the worst dining experience of my life"

  • "We happened upon this S.F. long time restaurant, and now I know why it's been here so long. We had oysters to begin which were fresh, briney, and delicious. Next the seafood salad for two, mounded with fresh crab, smoked salmon, and bay shrimp with a delicate citrus dressing. (What a deal for $20). To end we had the red snapper papillote, fabulous with cabbage, zucchini, onion, and potato. The house Chardonnay was decent and my husbands Viognier was delicious. We are coming back!"

  • "We were looking for a spot close to our hotel serving good food at a reasonable price. We made reservations for 8:00 on a Friday, which I guess is early by SF standards. The place was pretty empty when we arrived, but filled right up. A table or two next to the window was great for people watching on the street and probably a little quieter than a spot in the center of the restaurant. The atmosphere was casual but not too much so. The crab cakes were light, moist, and well seasoned.The saute scallops in a ginger cream sauce were wonderful. The peppered Mahi Mahi was cooked to perfection, but seemed to be missing something perhaps some fresh ginger gratings. Overall, loved it. Great food nice neighborhood feel, not too expensive."

  • "We had a great evening at Hyde street watching the cable cars go by while enjoying fabulous fish en papillote. Nice ambience, reasonable pricing for the city and only a block away from the bar scene on Polk Street. Service was attentive but not intrusive and this visit was as good as we remembered from the last time we ate here. Highly recommended."

  • "We took out of town guests who loved the small neighborhood feel of the restaurant. We were all quite happy with our meals. The seafood is great! There were a couple of larger parties there and the staff honored our request to seat us away from both so we could enjoy our own conversations."

  • "Have been wanting to try this restaurant for awhile because of recommendations from Russian Hill neighbors and other friends. Pleasantly surprised by quality of food. The combination seafood special was simply delicious. Everyone was pleased with what they ordered. It was a quiet Monday night , perfect place for leisurely visiting with friends. Charming restaurant."

  • "My sister and I were on our way back from a trip and figured why not stop somewhere in San Francisco? Mistake trying to walk in anywhere around 7 on a saturday night but after searching for quite awhile on Yelp, Urbanspoon and Open Table we discovered this place! Resturant is very cute and clean with a nautical theme (fits with the seafood of course) Our server was named Johnny and he was fantastic! My sister had the raviolis -which were literally the best & freshest tasting I have ever had! My halibut was awesome too! Ended the night with their "Secret Coffee" which was perfect combination of decadent and alcoholic hahaha! Overall awesome experience, awesome bang for your buck. (Not too pricey at all) Thanks for the great experience!"

  • "We're only occasional visitors to San Francisco and love to find new places to eat. This was the best find of the weekend. The fish was fresh, delicious and the preparation was perfect. The "paper bag" method of cooking is honestly not my favorite, but I ate every morsel in the wrapping. The crab bisque is not to be missed. No tiny sprinkle of crab here, it's loaded! Everything was perfect and we've already told quite a few friends about it. Love this place!"

  • "This restaurant has very good service and the food is fresh. What is noticeable is that the place could use a decor update and the recipes could also use a makeover. Everything was fresh and tasted good but there certainly was nothing really special about it. It felt more like eating at your friend's house than at a restaurant. If you want a simple, fresh meal at a neighborhood type restaurant this place fits the bill ."

  • "If you are looking for a touristy place to dine in San Francisco, look elsewhere. Otherwise, if you like well prepared seafood at a very fair price jump off the cable car at the top of Hyde St and walk a few steps. We liked it so much 6 years ago that we have told countless people about it and this time we walked up from Fisherman's Wharf. We were happy we did! The fish in papiotte, whichever one you choose, is a full meal wrapped in parchment - delicious. Hope we don't have to wait another 6 years to get back!"
