Service was slow

I only had 1/2 a glass of red wine (but I'm a lightweight anyway), so I guess I got buzzed the last time I went there, because the food was nothing like I remembered when I came back again this last time - while highly recommending it to my family nevertheless. Man, was I ashamed!\r \r The food was bland and boring. Service was slow, and at the bar, I thought it was funny that they had on tv at nighttime no less, w... view more

a great place for your favorite seafood dishes

This is the oldest-operating restaurant in San Francisco, established in the 1960s. The service is basic and friendly, the menu is large, and the and the portions are plentiful. The prices are mid-range. This is one of my favorite restaurants in the city!

Fantastic food and service!!!

I have lived in San Francisco for years and have never heard of this place. My boyfriend suggested it for a Saturday evening out with friends. The interior of the restaurant is causual yet completely charming. There are old license plates on the wall and a long bar on one side of the room. We ordered a bucket of clams to start. Delicious! They give you plenty of bread to dip in the left over sauce. Careful not... view more

HIGHLY Overrated

This was a most disappoining experience. Our expectation was good food and good service. What we got was an overpriced meal and a level of service that was most surprising. Especially when you consider that this eatery has been in business since 1861. 1861 MIND YOU!!!! Poor food and the service was even worse!!! SHAME, SHAME AND SHAME....YES...3 SHAMES!!!

Good Food, Good Price - Charming Restaurant

My parents were visiting from Hawaii. It was late on a Wednesday night and they had a craving for seafood, but did not want to pay a fortune. I had been to the OCH several years ago and stopped by to check them out. It was close to closing, but the hostess said they would hold the kitchen open for us. The decor looks like a neighborhood hangout, but the food...fresh and cooked perfectly. Try the Cioppino and the... view more

historical landmark

From viewing all the memorabilia on the walls, it seems like this place has quite a history. I really like the interior. The fish is very good also, although I haven't had the clams or the cioppiono (see previous reviews). I ordered blackened halibut on the lunch menu, which was very tasty, but the yellow rice underneath the fish seem to have been completely ignored. Overall, I had pleasant dining experience and ... view more
