In a city where most restaurants have a lifespan of less than five years, it is heartening, if not surprising, to find such an old-timer. Politicians and business people have been coming here forever, buying each other martinis and waiting to be seated (no reservations are accepted). The seafood is fresh and fabulous and the decor is turn-of-the-last-century. The waitstaff is great, and it's not surprising--some of them have been here more than 30 years!
My family and I have been going to Tadich Grill for five years now, and each time we leave happy and looking forward to our next visit. It is not just a restaurant, it is an institution, a monument! You enter a living thriving piece of history. It is the quintessential American Bar and Grill.I highly recommend it.
I read all of the reviews today 10/15/08 and went for lunch.
Food was bland, the atmosphere was loud and noise, the service was not great. I ordered soup which never arrived, they tried to serve me burned bread, the salad dressing was runny and plain old oil. Restaurant may have been there for many years but I won't be going back.
I'd say for the money - Go to the Four Seasons Hotel's Seasons Restaurant. Great service, and food to match - nice ambiance and the servers will attend to your needs/request.
This was a Chicago gangster style restaurant where you'd take someone you wanted to have bumped off!
The Tadich Grill is a great piece of San Francisco history. Unfortunately, the wait staff has developed an unpleasant attitude toward tourists. Unless you're a local, expect to be treated with indifferent disdain. The food is delicious, but the chef's expertise doesn't compensate for surly waiters and bartenders. Don't ruin your trip to San Francisco with a meal at the Tadich Grill.
The atmosphere and service is old school (ie: great, charming) but the food was a real let down. Bland, greasy. Even the fries were dull. The bread is supermarket quality.
Too many tourists stop here from the cable car, making a line out the door.
A good place to hide from your boss in the afternoon, bartenders are amusing and professional, but get out before the crowds appear for early dinner.
After going to Tadich for 30 years we and another couple from Albany, NY thought the seafood salad dressing (1000 Island?) had changed and was almost heavy and fizzy tasting in June 2005. Petrale was pan fried and did not have that right out of the pan feel. For some reason they have added vegetables to the plate? Creamed spinach tasted like marsala or some other cooking wine.
