Located a bit far from touristic places it’s like a pearl. Staying in line may be durable (we had 30-40 minutes) but you’re served with house wine for free during awaiting. Home atmosphere inside, excellent service and of course delicious seafood.

Excellent dinner starting with the best Calamari I've ever had. Fresh Halibut and Ahi Tuna for entrees paired with a wonderful bottle of wine. Great, friendly service ~ I would definitely recommend dinner here!

The Pacific Cafe is a neighborhood restaurant yet is on a major San Francisco artery and is easy to locate. They don't take reservations so you will usually find people waiting on the streets just outside the door. While you wait, staff will come around...More

This unassuming place known for its great seafood also serves wine while you wait. We met many kind people some of whom have been coming since the 70's as we drank some very good white wine and waited patiently to be called. The wait was...More

Obviously the wine is a great perk but the food and the staff were equally amazing. The chefs were kind (sat near them and chatted while they cooked), the staff is seasoned and clearly enjoy their job and each other. The crab cakes were great....More

My father and his significant other brought me to this little gem while visiting this past week. Quaint small place where the line is long but for good reason. Complimentary wine while waiting! I had the parmesan crusted halibut. It was fabulous!

Definitely one of the best meals we had in SF. We went there for dinner. There was quite a queue, but the wine was on the house and made the wait worthwhile. The place is old and authentic, and the food was amazing. I had...More

Oh I am so sorry to tell you that they are only open for dinner. They open at 5 pm. And I believe part of the fun is drinking wine on line while you wait your turn to be seated. No reservations. Hope you get to go... More
