    Established in 1849, Tadich is the city's oldest restaurant, and still one of its most popular. Tuck into old-school San Francisco dishes such as crab Louis, shrimp a la Newburg and much more. Read more

    Tadich's classic Cioppino includes clams, prawns, scallops, shrimp, crabmeat, mussels, and white fish cooked in a tomato-based sauce and served with garlic bread. Consider it part soup, part ritual. Read more

    Perfect place to go for a taste of San Francisco history. If you want to visit one of the oldest restaurant in SF and one of the oldest in the country,come here. They have great service+stiff drinks.

    The menu is delightfully old-school and the best place to sit here is, of course, at the counter. Really, you aren't a true San Franciscan until you've been here at least once. Read more

    California’s oldest restaurant is where the Financial District crowd goes for three-martini lunches served by white-coated waitstaff. Stick with the classics here: cioppino and a strong drink. Read more

    Classic old school SF joint. Get the surf and turf and a martini and enjoy a slice of California history.

    Tadich is a font of iconic dishes: but for the sheer San Franciscan hubris of putting bacon and fried oysters into an omelet, we have to give it to the Hangtown Fry. Read more

    Crab cakes and seafood sauté are a must! Cakes full of meat, not bread and mirepoix - with a mean sauce. Sauté with large shrimp, scallops and crab chunks, in a delicious butter sauce. Craveworthy.

    I love the old school San Francisco atmosphere! While the service leaves a lot to be desired, the seafood is fresh and if you tell me there's a better cioppino in the city, I'll fight you.

    Make friends with Pete at the bar. Good stories and service with a smile. Request Bartender's choice and soak in his cocktail artistry.

    Best clam chowder in the city. Amazing seafood. Started by 2 Croatian brothers during the Gold Rush, making it the oldest restaurant in the state. This place rocks. No reservations, so get here early.

    Took almost 20 years here to go. Will not wait to come back. Fantastic old school vibe. Quiet. Great staff. Bitters and soda with a crab Louie. Delish.

    Great classic place. Can’t go wrong with the seafood options. Also go for a classic drink like a martini or a manhattan. It fits the vibe.

    Old school San Fran restaurant feels like a NY steakhouse. The crab cakes were awesome and the house specials were very good. Not very kid friendly and if u bring more than 6 it's a tight squeeze.

    Tadich Grill is a wonderful piece of San Francisco history. Go for lunch on a Friday with a business associate or collaborator and feel old school and glamorous :)

    Monkfish was delicious! The rice pudding is great for a light dessert after one of their filling dinners.

    San Francisco's longest-standing restaurant continues to hold its own as a bar. The handful of stools up front are where you go for a proper, no-pretense super-dry martini or rye Manhattan.

    If you leave here without ordering Cioppino, congrats you have failed at life. Pro tip: go family style and pair it with appetizers.

    Old school. Amazing cioppino - do it. Get the sand dabs, a local sweet pacific fish like a better dover sole. and do those Dungeness crab cakes.

    The Tadich's filet mignon is top drawer – this is an atypical spot where medium rare actually means medium rare-though the sea bass is a close second. This spot demands a two-hour lunch and a martini. Read more

    The mixed seafood platter for two is great. It's served on a bed of iceberg lettuce so basically ends up being a big seafood salad.

    This is the best value in all of San Francisco. Amazing seafood specials. Ask your waiter what they would eat today! And don't pass up on dessert!

    The calamri app was excellent with the two dipping sauces. The crab leg cocktail was great also. The lamb chops were just ok. The crab and lobster thermador was just ok too much cheese in it.

    Their Avacado and Crab salad is simple but delicious - splitting one is a great way to start a meal.
