Seafood
Ferry Plaza Seafood opened in its original location in the San Francisco Ferry Building in Fall 2003. It was originally conceived as a classic chowder, sandwich and salad lunch / early dinner spot; a nice place to hang out with friends and family along the Bay.

As time went on, the need for creativity began to push the limits of their little kitchen. They added seafood items to the menu that eventually became not only staple, signature dishes for many years, but they began to define the kind of food the restaurant could serve in the future.

The Ferry Building was a wonderful starting point for the restaurant. Moving from one iconic building to another iconic neighborhood in San Francisco seems not only natural, but only reinforces the commitment that Ferry Plaza Seafood has to both their suppliers, to their customers and to the city that made it all possible.

    The Ferry Plaza Seafood was a great Friday evening experience. We were easily able to book a 3 person reservation the day before. The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere and wasn't overly crowded. The owner was very gracious and served us drinks initially until our waiter took over. The seafood was outstanding and we were very happy having chosen to eat at Ferry Seafood Plaza. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an excellent place to eat at Washington Square.

    We love this restaurant, centrally located in North Beach. The seafood is really fresh and tasty, and not drowned out with overseasoning and sauces. Good drinks too.

    Owner served and was very solicitous. Good chowder, fresh fish and delicious vongole pasta. Good neighborhood spot in an area of Columbus where many restaurants closed and everyone in North Beach is waiting to see what will replace them. Although not exactly new, they are profiting from being a Second venue of a well-Known restaurant and the end of repaving at Union and Columbus.

    Quiet little place, but nothing special. Very under seasoned, the bread was burnt, and they left huge chunks of garlic in my pasta dish, which made sections of it inedible.

    Great food, great service. It's the type of restaurant that the owners wait on you while they talk to their customers. It's a throw back to the simpler days.

    I think this restaurant has the freshest and best seafood in San Francisco! I would recommend it to anyone who likes seafood. Great variety of oysters to start, fried calamari is wonderful, very light and the scallop risotto is amazing as is the fresh pacific salmon. I love the roasted brussel sprouts too. And roasted artichokes when in season. So far everything I have tried is great.
