Tadich Grill San Francisco Reviews
quality seafood in the oldest restaurant in San Francisco Oct 09, 2012
Restaurant doesn't accept reservation. We had lunch at 12 pm and they had available tables.
This is the oldest restaurant in California. It was opened in 1849.
On the right, a long wooden bar stretching from the front door back to the kitchen. The stools at the bar are always occupied with diners. On the left side, a row of tables with starched white tableclothes outline the bar. On each one there is a bowl of lemon quarters.
Dark wood paneling with large mirrors cover the walls and Art Deco brass and milk-glass light fixtures hang from the fifteen-foot ceiling.
The staff wears starched white cotton jackets. The restaurant's name is printed on all the plates.
The menu has an overwhelming selection of seafood in various forms, and all the dishes are somewhat classic (as opposed to innovative). Prices run high, and most entrees are above $25. You can easily spent over $50/person here, with just a couple of items each. And a rule: you can't pay less than 12 dollars per person. Soup cost 9$, if you take just soup anyway you will pay 12$.
Service is attentive, and servers keep your individual bread plates full of sourdough (unfortunately, not served warm) and butter.
shrimp bisque soup bowl - 9 $ it was good
Salad tomato and anchovy - 11$
Branzino (day special) - 23$- delicious, served with potato and pumpkin
Lou Martini Caberne -a glass - 9 $
