Hyde Street Seafood House & Raw Bar Ratings and Reviews
We had our Christmas dinner at Hyde Street Seafood and Bar. The main dining area was cozy and full of character. All three of us enjoyed our meals. The service was a bit slow, but we were in no hurry, so it just fine. I would go back again next time we visit San Francisco.
We hadn't been to the Hyde St Seafood House & Raw Bar in several years, so thought it was time for visit. I was pleased to see that it had held up so well. It definitely fits the neighborhood gem category. The service is inviting and friendly, the cliental mostly locals, the wine by the glass pours are generous, and the food is comforting if not overly exciting - basics executed well. For an appetizer we had oysters - they brought a variety, and they were excellent; as good as I've had anywhere locally. This was especially notable on a relatively slow Thursday night. The Cioppino that I ordered was packed with fish and shell fish in a tangy tomato broth - well done.
So happy I booked this spot! Traveling alone for business and wanted a nice seafood place. Loved the halibut in parchment paper with julienne veggies. Service was excellent and really enjoyed speaking with my waitress. Will recommend and hope to come back!!
The waitress had a put upon attitude. The restaurant was 80 percent empty in a Saturday night. This place is not doing well. I think it was the waitresses fault that I won't be going back because the food was clean fresh and simply prepared.
Don't believe this is a 4 star restaurant. The food was TERRIBLE! The clam chowder was from a can with no flavor. I had to put a ton of salt in it to be able to taste it. The scallops weren't cooked well and in some weird cream sauce.
There were only two servers for the entire restaurant.
My family and I couldn't wait to get out of there.
We went somewhere else to get dessert to get the taste of the meal out of our mouths.
Avoid at all costs.
Nice, quiet place. Food was good. My biggest disappointment was that the portion size for our orders weren't that big. I'm a big eater so I like my food! Also, on my wife's order, it called for tomatoes in the sauce with fish but they forgot to add the tomatoes. They ended up bringing out just a raw cut up tomato, a little hard and unripened, to compensate. Nice gesture, but not quite the same!
This was a rather flavorless dinner. We ordered Caesar salad for two which lacked any hint of garlic, oil, or the as claimed blended anchovies. My wife ordered King Salmon and I the local fish both prepared in parchment paper. We each tasted both dishes which included potato and julienned vegetables in the parchment pouch. The method is not unfamiliar to us but the result in this case was bland. No wonder this restaurant was nearly empty at dinner time.
This might be the longest two-person dinner I've ever had. Because it was Valentine's Day, they were pretty busy and it took at least 20 minutes between each service (order, bread, food, dessert). They didn't lack seating and we were seated (with a reservation) right away, but seemed incredibly short-staffed on the floor and in the kitchen.
In terms of the food, the raw oysters were SUPER BOMB. One of the freshest I've ever had. The meal was pretty good, but not $28-worth good. The stuffed shrimp was a little too buttered-up for my taste. I've gotten better seafood at touristy Fisherman's Wharf for less.
The ambiance was excellent. Dim lighting, nautical decor, tucked away in a cute neighborhood. Probably would have been a better experience on a less impacted night, though it provided plenty of time to connect in a romantic setting.
This place was amazing, if I could give a 10 star rating I would! We ordered & shared a variety of foods, each one was beautiful & uniquely delicious. The staff were all very friendly & helpful & everything was clean & decorated nicely. We will def be coming here again.
Picked this review based on the menu that was available on line. Was disappointed with the interior -- it was cold and a bit dated. Ordered oysters on the half shell ($15 for a dozen) and enjoyed them; lobster bisque -- also enjoyed that; and mussels which had an off taste flavor. Service was rapid, responsive and friendly. With all the choices in San Fran don't think that I'll be returning. Total bill came to $49.40 which was a bit steep considering I drank water.
