Seafood
Capurro’s is one of San Francisco’s mainstays for fresh seafood, serving the masses in its Fisherman’s Wharf location. Succulent shrimp cocktail, velvety clam chowder and fried oysters on the shell make for excellent starters to your meal. The hot seafood platter, loaded with crab cakes, crispy calamari and beer-battered jumbo shrimp, is for those who cannot decide on just one selection. Other popular entrees at Capurro's include the crispy fish tacos topped with spicy taco sauce and guacamole, and the California black mussels served over linguine. The beauty of Capurro’s is that they’ve managed to keep a high level of quality with the food while remaining welcoming and affordable.

    This was the worst experience I have had at a restaurant in San Francisco. We had a Groupon so we paid in advance. The food was not the best but what was really bad was when we were presented with the bill. Our meal with groupon was $64 for two. They said that our meal was $140 and charged us tax on that amount. When I spoke with the manager and asked where there was a meal on the menu that was $70 each, he couldn't find one. He apologized and told us to leave...We watched and they did this to two other tables while we were there. One of the tables did complain and they made good for their "mistake".This restaurant is horrible and I will never go back.

    I've been there a couple times before, and it was fine. They had what sounded like a decent prix fixe deal for Thanksgiving (I spent about $150 for three people). Everything: cold. Salad: tiny and totally uninteresting. Turkey: bland and bone dry (and I got 100% dark meat, though my co-diners did not.) Gravy: congealed. Veggies: utterly unflavored. Stuffing: okay. I would like to single out the sweet potatoes for their contribution: they had the consistency of slightly sautéed carrots. It was hard to tell whether they were undercooked or just so badly dried (though they certainly were that too). Totally inedible. Interestingly, my girlfriend asked for hers without gravy (and had to return round 1 when it came with gravy) and hers was much closer to edible than ours was. I have to guess that they were making up plates hours in advance, storing them somewhere very hot, and then taking them out for 20 minutes to give it the 'hideously overlooked and dry and yet still cold' experience. Never. Again. Please, learn from my experience: get seafood here, or go elsewhere.

    We wanted a seafood dinner in SF that wasn't too touristy and Capurro's fit the bill. The seafood was great and just what we wanted and it wasn't overly pricey like some of the other places we checked out.

    Always take my out of town guest here. On Monday night I brought my sister and brother here to get a dose of SF. The clam chowder was great and the blacken Sea Bass over a bed of home made gnocchi was divine. Fried calamari was exceptional. Be sure to try the cocktail sauce. They make it in house. There is a bottle at each table. However, I am going back again just to have the pleasure of seeing Antonio. He was our server. He deserves the title of the best server I have encountered. Such attention to detail. I was talking to my guests quite a bit and didn't finish my clam chowder before my entree arrived. Antonio promptly brought a plate to cover my entree to keep it warm. Antonio was polite, charming and gracious.

    We enjoyed the ambiance and the fresh calamari but their dishes are very salty. Seafood were overly cooked, overly salty and pretty disappointing for a righ off the wharf seafood restaurant.

    While the service was great at Capurro's, the food was not. Nice setting, but food that aspires to mediocrity. My meal tasted like it had been cooked two days prior to consumption.

    We were just getting away for the weekend and we were looking for a very nice place for dinner. We found it. The moment we walked in we were greeted right away and seated. Service was excellent and the food was marvelous. Highly recommend.

    Two in my party ordered the dungeness full crab steamed. It neither tasted fresh nor were the crabs full of meat; they seem partially empty. The clam chowder was only okay. The restaurant charges a 4% employer mandate in addition to the 8.75 % sales tax. The employer mandate is to pay for the additional costs of Obamacare; a San Francisco rip-off. If you can avoid it, please do not visit San Francisco.

    One of my family's favorite restaurants in the Bay Wharf area. Absolutely tasty food, primarily Italian seafood but many options for the non Italian or seafood lovers. Casual and comfortable dining and absolutely tremendously warm and friendly staff. Ask for Antonio, slim Naples born Italian server. Treats you absolutely special.

    The staff here is always very friendly and helpful. While I thought the whole roasted crab was just OK, I was really blown away by the butterscotch pudding dessert. It's packed with butterscotchy goodness! So worth the drive to the wharf!
