About Alamo Square Seafood Grill

We specialize in fresh seafood in generous portions. Come and visit us on Wednesday evening when you can "Bring Your Own Wine" and corkage fees are waived. In the last nineteen years, we have become a neighborhood favorite for a delicious meal at a great price. When Michael Bauer reviewed us he said, "Good seafood value at Alamo Square." and "The owners of Alamo are veterans at offering good food at great value." as well as "Snapper, salmon, tuna, swordfish, and petrale sole are all priced at $15.50 for a generous half-pound portion. Even with nothing else on the plate, it would be a good deal, but when you add the myriad side dishes, it's astounding."

We really enjoyed the host, atmosphere and food. If it were not for the parking difficulty before the symphony, we would be regulars. Nonetheless, it is well worth the walk.

Very disappointed in my discriminatory experience. Not only was I judged based off my age and gender, the creepy old man felt the need to grab me by the arm. He's lucky I didn't call the cops right then and there. AVOID at all costs!

The food was great and everything I expected however the service was not quite what was expected. With intentions of splitting a meal over a bottle of wine, I was informed that the menu for the day was a mandatory 3 course meal. Additionally we had chose the restraunt over the appeal of no corking fees for this specific date, which was denied later in the night based on a "sign posted outside". None of these changes were ever notified when making the reservation nor confirming it. When asked about the changes we were met with quite snide remarks essentially showing us to the door. While the food excellent, I was unimpressed by the shady business and snarky wait service.

I was excited about this place based on online reviews, so I booked a Valentine’s Day reservation for my wife and me. I was disappointed—the scallops were salty, the green beans were overcooked and service was slow. It was a fixed price 3-course menu and they were busy. But there were only 2 choices for each course on the menu, so they certainly could have prepared the food better. On the plus side, both the tiramisu and flourless chocolate cake were yummy! And my wife had tasty mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts. It was not worth the hundred bucks, but I would be willing to try it again since it was Valentine’s Day.

Charming little neighborhood gem! Great seafood and reasonably priced. Second time here and we will go again. Cozy, romantic, and quiet. Wednesday "no corkage fee" great for bringing one of your own nice bottles of wine. Best creme brûlée in the city!

We were heading to The Independent for a concert and looked on-line for restaurant recommendations in the area. Our group of 6 had a great time at the Alamo Square Seafood Grill! The food was great, and they had a nice wine list. Service was excellent!! Great value for the money. Everyone of us said we would definitely come back if in the area.

After walking past this restaurant (before opening time) so often, I finally synchronized things to eat here. It will certainly not be the last time. The nightly special was a generous portion of blackened trout, with rice and vegetables. The dinner salad was a bowl of fresh greens, with a topping of shaved fennel. Dessert was a tasty meringue, with pomegranate seeds and a warm caramel sauce. Add in a couple of glasses of wine (1/2 price on Tuesdays), and it's a fantastic value for wonderful food. I can't wait to return, and to try a number of the choices of fish, cooked in any of a number of ways. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. Why did I wait so long?!?

This is a wonderful neighborhood gem, but worth the drive. It is an EXCELLENT value. My friend and I chose the daily "prix fixe" which was: a lovely mixed green salad or wonderful cauliflower soup; an entree of blackened trout with a lovely beurre sauce, rice and vegetables perfectly cooked: not hard and not mushy. Dessert was what is known in English as "floating island", a custard sauce topped with toasted meringue and caramel. We each had a glass of wine. The per person total with tax and tip was $35! I look forward to recommending it in my role as an independent tour guide and concierge.

I've been here before and always enjoyed a great meal with nice service. Our server was untrained but fine- the FOOD was not good. Salad a zero, nothing to it with a dressing that didn't add anything. Oh, and the fish special, usually so good, was not. The dessert fell flat as well. so sorry

My meal wasn't great, but my friend's was really good and our appetizer (calamari) was also delicious. I guess I just chose wrong (I ordered the sea food pasta, it's basically just like fettuccine alfredo, which I was not expecting).

second visit in recent months. I need to remember to not go again. my steak was over cooked and very unpleasant. should have sent it back. snails had no garlic butter in the shell with them. garlic butter was on the dish to hold shells. floating island was decent but not the best I have had. no one in the eatery outside me for over an hour. used to be very good.

This is, of course, a great place for fish. They have other options, but that's the focus. The night we were there you could choose from four different types, prepared four different ways, with 5 different sauces. We both liked the idea of trout, and it turned out that blackened trout with beurre blanc was the "prix fixe" special, so we went for it. That made for excellent value, adding soup or salad plus a very elegant dessert (floating island, which I don't recall every having before). To be fair, the serving size was a little small for my taste, but a trout is a trout, and it was fresh and perfectly prepared.

This is not a gourmet restaurant in the sense of fine dining. But this restaurant is very good eating at a very reasonable choice. For example, I don't like many restaurant crab cakes because they always have filler. Not here. The crab cakes were crab and good. They also have several fish and they cook it and sauce to your choice. The Tiramisu desert was out of this world. Great Place.

This is an excellent restaurant for the menu price. For San Francisco, I would have expected to pay at least 50% more, given the quality. The food was fresh and delicious. My wife and teenage daughter were very happy as well. Next time we are in SF, a stop at the Alamo will be on the itinerary.

Waited one hour before anyone took our order and had to ask three times for water refills.

Two of us ordered the Risotto, it looked and tasted like a can of Campbell's chicken and rice soup.

We asked for separate checks, waitress said she could not accommodate the request, but could take separate credit cards. It was a fiasco when the check arrived, we are still not sure what we actually paid.

We won't be going back.

We all enjoyed the food. However, dining out is a whole experience that includes service first, then the food. The two are two halves to a whole. If one half is bad it ruins the the whole experience. The food half was very good. The service half left me feeling slighted. The front end needs work, a lot of work. Unprofessional and surly. I won't be going back nor would I recommend to my friends, my enemies, maybe.
