Night out with DadHad a nice meal. The food was good and the service was great.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for Post-Meeting DinnerWe've been here with multiple vendors. Foods great, always a friendly, fun atmosphere. It keeps things light and hip. One thing - not a good place for Vegetarians - only one meal on the menu for vegetarians.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Restaurant!I've been to Kingfish 3 times and each time the food is great and everyone in my party loves their food. The menu has a wide variety of options, from burgers to salads to soup to fish to steak. The drinks are strong and delicious. The ambience is great. I truly recommend this place for all occasions.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMTraveler keeps returningThis is a place that we return to every time we
come to San Francisco before departing the area.
The food is always excellent whether it is steak,
seafood or the ravioli! Highly recommend this as a
place to eat before leaving on your flight out of
town.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMostly good experienceWe have had group dinners here a couple times, and they do accommodate our group of 6 easily. However, we always have serious trouble parking, even on a Wednesday, so I don't know that we'll go back here again. The food is tasty, a bit pricey, and the sizes are somewhat inconsistent, so it's probably worth asking if in doubt, especially with the appetizers. They have some nice drinks which are also tasty. They were also very accommodating when we had special requests for food allergies.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood, service and ambienceFood, service and ambience very good. We will return.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMKingfish still deliversKingfish has been a mainstay in Downtown San Mateo for a long time now. Yet, the place delivers consistent quality and ambiance. With the oyster bar and the decor, the place is quite happening. We went there with a group of friend and everyone very much enjoyed their orders. From the salads to the fish, pasta and salads. Our server that evening was a bit forgetful that night and that was the only dark spot for our evening. Perfect place to go right before a movie with a group of friends.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat drinksWhile the Sazerac was a tiny bit different than the NOLA approach, it was excellent.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat (late) lunchI made a reservation for a group of 7 - for a business lunch. We were seated right away at a nice big round table. Since it was later, the restaurant was fairly quiet, so we could easily talk. We shared some appetizers and everyone enjoyed their food. Excellent service, attention to detail and as always, the food was great.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMa little loud near the kitchenI liked having a booth, but the only knock I can think of was that it was a little loud near the kitchen. All else was perfect. Next, time, I'll ask to be seated upstairs.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMKing FishThis is one of my favorite restaurants. Exceptional service and food every time! King Fish is a great blend between Nola style food and contemporary American. Whether you're craving short steak, jambalya, oysters or lobster gnocchi - there is a dish to suit your culinary appetite.
If you're looking for a fun treat and care to imbibe, order a sazerac and marvel at the blue absinthe flames as they prepare it table side for you.
The staff is great and very attentive. Great ambiance with fun jazz and soul inspired art adorning the walls.
King Fish is true San Mateo hot spot that is worth it every time.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEasy New OrleansNIce spot for dinner. Food was good. New Orleans style, but repackaged for California. Big menu but not overwhelming. Dozen Ice Cold Oysters were delicious! Had the Sea Bass (hooked). Nice flavor, not a large portion. Mustard Green Salad is misnamed. It should be called Green Salad with mustard dressing. I thought it would be nice southern twist to use Mustard Green. Tasted fine though. Saw the Jambalaya, nothing like what you would get in New Orleans which would have been sloppier, but I would prefer it this way. We sat downstairs. It was a bit noisy for a party of 5. Had to do some shouting. Overall good experience.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinnerCame with husband on a impromptu date and was pleasantly surprised. Fresh oysters were very fresh and tasty. Husband had the scallops and prawns which were delicious. The lobster ravioli was good however the lobster pieces were quite small. The waiter recommended a nice Sauvignon Blanc as well as a nice dessert to finish.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience!Kingfish was perfect. My cousin and I took our aunt there for her birthday. We got to sit in a nice quiet area and talk to our hearts' content. The service was attentive but not pushy. We all enjoyed our food. I'm looking forward to going back.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMJuan Carlos provided outstandingJuan Carlos provided outstanding dinner service!
