Fodor's Expert Review Hayes Street Grill

$$$ Hayes Valley Seafood

You'll snag a table if you arrive here just as music lovers are folding their napkins and heading off for a show at the nearby Opera House or SFJAZZ Center. Fresh, sustainable, often local seafood lures the faithful here. Much of the fish—yellowtail, salmon, swordfish—is grilled and served with a choice of sauces from beurre blanc to lemon-and-caper butter. Brass coat hooks, white tablecloths, a long bar, and a mix of banquettes and tables define the traditional San Francisco look of this four-decades-old seafood stronghold.
