Diner Reviews
  • "Cute corner store front small fish restaurant in Bryant in Mission. Food is excellent and probably a bit more fun on a busy weekend night or lunch in the sun but not great on a quiet Thursday late, service slow and a little overly self assured."

  • "One of my foodie guests politely described Local's Corner fare as "very delicate." We didn't see enough options on the menu to have us leaving satisfied for under $100 per person -- if then -- although the posted menu made the fare seem reasonable. Our server suggested ordering two plates each and sharing them, but the three shell-roni-sized abalone-stuffed squid masquerading as one seafood entree, for example, were insufficient for sharing among four of us for even one little piece each, however tasty they may have been. The 12 oysters on the half shell for $24 might have made a good snack with beer before dinner elsewhere. The space is cramped and unimproved, the kitchen slow and the neighborhood a little too far off Mission."

  • "Nice to have a seafood restaurant that doesn't serve the same old, same old type of dishes. Their menu is pretty small, as are the portions (and I'm not a big eater). Oysters on the half shell are served at happy hour prices from 5 - 7 p.m.. We ordered the dungeness crab salad, black ink squid pasta with crab and uni, asparagus salad (that was served with an egg (reminded me of a brunch dish), pork butter bread and oysters. They recommend 2 - 3 courses per person.Everything was good esp. the pasta and the dungeness salad. I would certainly eat here again but in a city with so many amazing restaurants it wouldn't be on my short list.. Prices are in-line with most upscale restaurants. Restaurant has a small diner feel to it."

  • "Intimate setting. Limited menu (like dining at home, but with a professional chef) but very tasty. Kid friendly. Can see the chef and team in the open kitchen. Nice experience."

  • "Seasonal menu, beautiful attention to detail, an open kitchen, and great service make this a perfect little restaurant for any night. It's romantic and high end but really affordable, with a small but precise and interesting wine list."

  • "Open table confirmed a reservation for Sunday evening, a time Local's corner is closed. The restaurant called to let me know. You need to.correct you program."

  • "THis is not a review for food. We've been to Local's Corner before and loved it. Unfortunately, this last time the restaurant was closed, Somebody forgot to tell Opentable they were closed or changed their hours or something. We will try again but please fix the communication gap. Standing outside the restaurant I double checked that I'd made the correct res. Bummer but oh well."

  • "I had the pleasure of meeting the head chef (Timmy) of L.C. at my bar a week before our visit. He offered me a dozen oysters on my first visit -- huge selling point! Arrived about 20 min. earlier than our reservation, and we got seated right away. The staff was extremely friendly, and the general feel of the place albeit on the smaller side was very cozy. Started off with a cheese selection, and a dozen oysters. The chef (Timmy was out of town) sent a few small bites (quail egg w/ caviar, smoked sturgeon, and a bite of the herring special) for us to enjoy. Main courses were rainbow trout and duck confit risotto. All of it was absolutely delicious. Easily some of the best food I've enjoyed in San Francisco. I'm talking Michelin-star quality."

  • "We visited this hidden gem on a Saturday night, after reading Zagat survey ratings of seafood restaurants. The price and portion were more than reasonable for the great food. Oysters were very fresh. The kitchen staff carefully cleaned and separated the oysters from the shells. The squid and crab salads were phenomenal, with complex flavors and artistic presentations. We sat at the counter and had the pleasure of chatting with the chefs. The restaurant is small, and the only suggestion I have is to add some fabric to the wall to absorb sound. For foodies, this is a place not to be missed. There is another restaurant (which serves desserts, pastries, and brunch) by the same owner. Hopefully we will visit them next time in town."

  • "One of the best meals I've had in the city and several foods I haven't had before or have infrequently. Everything was beautifully plated and seasoned wonderfully–really a delightful experience."

  • "Nice, tasty, small seafood plates. Not many options for non-seafood lovers. I enjoyed the meal, but found the prices a bit high."

  • "This was our 3rd or 4th time here and Locals Corner is consistent everytime. The server is always kind, and beer and wine is always selected well. We had herring, and pickled salad that was absolutely amazing. The squid ink spaghetti was delicious and rich. This is a place we always recommend our many out town guests to and they all agree it's worth the visit."

  • "The food is outstanding with amazing favors. The ingredients are of the highest quality. My only pause is that the portions are very small. I was fairly hungry so it is not the best spot if you need more substance."

  • "Good food, good service, too expensive. Our group of 5 was the ONLY one there on a Thursday night."

  • "This was my second visit as this restaurant did not impress me for the first time. We were seated at the bar even though there were several tables open on Friday night. When we were ready to order, some staff were still chatting or looking at their iPhone. The disappointing service never got better throughout the meal. We started with Smoked Sturgeon, which was extremely salty. The entree dish Black Cod was decent, however, Squid Ink Spaghetti was incredibly salty to the point of being simply unpalatable. I often eat out, but by far, this was the saltiest food I have ever tasted. In addition, I tried to get over the uncomfortable feel of eating with a short & lightweight dessert fork instead of a dinner fork, but I couldn't."

  • "New Years Eve meal at Local's Corner was quiet, local and exactly what we were looking for. I found the service to be professional and friendly, exactly what you would expect at a very small corner restaurant who's name is a perfect description. The food was disappointing, however. I think the festivities began early in the kitchen and the food just didn't meet the mark. Nothing was bad, nothing was undercooked or uneatable, it just didn't have the seasoning, the completeness, and basically lacked the quality expected on special evenings."

  • "Locals Corner consistently has interesting food with an emphasis on veggies and sea food. Most dishes are very tasty and can be shared. Stay away from the abalone though as you need a magnifying glass to find it int he dish. The downer of this informal environment is that service while friendly is slow and inattentive. In the last three times we have eaten there the waitresses are very hard to find, unpredictable long times between courses, etc. It shouldn't be so hard to order another drink or bottle of wine."
