    Relaxed ambiance and good Italian and Seafood cuisine are featured by this establishment. The pastas are good, suaces are excellent, and portions are very generous. Service is often a little slow due to too few wait staff on duty. This has been a consistent problem at every visit. However, wait staff are always friendly and knowledgeable.

    We have eaten at this restaurant quite a few times. We both had salmon which was delicious. We ordered a mushroom appetizer that was very good and large enough to serve 4. The service was very good.

    Each time I go to By th Bucket, I am very satisfied with the delicious food offerings. Many restaurants overcook salmon, but here, it is always done just right. Sometime the service is slower than I like, but I forgive that. The SF Forty Niners memorabilia adds an interesting diversion for guests. I will return and bring out of town guests.

    I grew up in the S.F. Bay Area, and can remember when there were hardwood floors, a bar, and round tables. Peanuts, were served and the shells were thrown on the floor. The place has changed dramatically since then. No more peanuts, t.v. screens all over. The booths are uncomfortable. But the food is still excellent! The lobster spaghetti, was rich and tasted wonderful. The buckets of mussels & clams, were both amazing, in a great broth and cooked to perfection. Dipping bread in the juice of the bucket is highly recommended. The biggest problem is getting the waiter to bring more bread. I will go back. It is not cheap, and service could be better, but the food is excellent. And if you like clams there are none better.

    We've dined here many times and I've always had the linguine & clams and loved it. This time I tried the Calamari Steak Dore and found it lacking in flavor. It was nicely cooked, but boring and without much sauce. The veggies were excellent. My dining partner had the Catfish Putanesca and thought it was delicious. I'd noted on my OpenTable reservation that we were celebrating a birthday, but apparently the message was overlooked as nothing was suggested or done to commemorate this event. Lastly, we were seated near a table with screaming children. I know this isn't the restaurant's fault, but it just added to a disappointing dining experience overall.

    We shared the red snapper and it was absolutely scrumptious! It was prepared to perfection. Also, the tiramisu we selected for dessert was fantastic as well! The service was outstanding too. We'll certainly be back.

    Took some friends here for a birthday celebration, although my husband and I have been going for years. As usual the food was great and the service was wonderful. We had a group of 8 and wanted to sit in the bar where it is fun and noisy, like we were. They accommodated with a great spot in the corner which worked perfect for our group. Alicia, our server and I believe an owner??, waited on us. What a great experience. She is awesome and even as busy as she was, she never lost a beat! It was as though we were the only people in the restaurant. As I say, we eat here quite often and usually in the bar area, and the food is always wonderful. Our friends were quite surprised, since most of them had not been in years. All were very happy!

    With a party of twelve, on a Monday night we got seated easily, in a generous space, by a helpful hostess. A beautiful, large fish tank dominated the kitchen area. Everybody liked their food, prices were moderate for the quality. Service was a little slow for my taste but others said "serving twelve is harder". This place is popular for good reasons!

    Although By-th-Bucket is new to OpenTable, we've been going there for years! Nearly every dish I've tried has been delicious, but I'm especially fond of the lasagna (with bolognese sauce) and the catfish meuniere. My wife loves the seafood linguini and is also a fan of the paella.

    The manager and the server do not know the menu.i asked if the smoked salmon, was really smoked and cooked on a smoker or cured. Server said "cooked", but it was cured, he and the manager didn't understand the difference. To top it off, found 2 hairs in my salad. I give the 2"stars", because the ciopinno was good. Won't be back

    We eat at By th' Bucket frequently. We live within walking distance and the whole family loves this place. The service is excellent, the food tasty and the wine list is comprehensive. There are always many regulars and a great family feel. We've even eaten here for Thanksgiving!!

    We were seated on time to our reservation of 6pm. The restaurant was not full. Our main course was not served to us until 7pm. We did not have any delays on our side for ordering. Our drinks were not refilled in a timely manner and our server rarely checked in on us. Bussers were the ones we had to ask for drink refills, napkins, etc. The chicken parmesan was chewy (the meat likely had been frozen) and the tomato sauce bland. The two fish meals (specials on the menu) were very good. Some of the flatware already placed at our table had dried food still stuck on it. We will not be returning to this restaurant.
