Fish & Farm Ratings and Reviews

Ryan was the worst waiter I have ever had in 75 years of dining out. Did not know the menu, brought food we never ordered and kept it on the bill, after we sent it back. Asked 4 times whether we wanted coffee, after we answered negative each time.

Guest who had the fish said it was good. guest with risotto did not like. Said chef would not alter her dish, she was upset no substitutes. All the guests thought the waiter was quirky, did not like him. Very disappointing for a girls night out. Would not go again.

Having looked forward to dining at Fish & Farm for some time, perhaps my expectations were set a bit too high. That said, I found the food, the decor, and the service to be underwhelming. I had a crab bisque (one of the "specials") to start, in which I tasted absolutely no crab. Frankly, it tasted like canned soup. The server completely forgot to bring my business colleague's starter.
For the main course, I had the sandwich-of-the-day, a lightly fried fish (I can't remember if it was sole, tilapia, or some other sort of fish), which lacked flavor and crunch, but had more than ample bread and messy condiments. My colleague had a pork chop, but he didn't comment on it, either positively or negatively.
I won't be going back to Fish & Farm.

An ok place to have a casual dinner. The menu is simple and good value for money, they guarantee the quality of their fish and meat. The service at the bar was disappointing: the bartender could not help suggesting a cocktail and brought the bill without asking.

Went to Fish and Farm for a late night dinner. We were seated at 10:30, which is after most places are closed. We were seated quickly, and the waiter came right to our table as the kitchen was closing at 11. Had the fried artichoke salad, which as ok. Basically mixed greens and the fried artichokes. My partner had the cioppino, which he enjoyed. I had the fried chicken. The fried chicken was moist and piping hot. The mashed potatoes were a bit plain and cole slaw was ok.... Not the bes food in SF, but ok for late night. It's more like pub food.

Our waiter, Samson, was fantastic. There were some problems in the kitchen. Our crab cake appetizer was one of the best I've had in SF but it came out after our main course. The turkey club had 1 slice of bacon on it. Samson brought out extra bacon. The menu specified cheddar cheese but it came with Swiss. The shrimp pesto special was delicious but too rich for such a large portion of pasta. The chicken on the Buffalo Chicken Salad was amazing but the ratio of romaine lettuce to the mixed in toppings was not good. I had to dig for the tomatoes and bacon and didn't recall seeing any blue cheese. The chef treated the birthday girl to a wonderful homemade apple tart with Mitchell's ice cream. That was the highlight of the meal. I would go again and get the Crab Cakes and Buffalo Chicken without the salad.

Picked this place because I knew everyone wouldn't have to be yelling at each other to hear everybody's conversation. Nice quiet location. Good burgers !!! and everything is priced right !
Our wait person was most accommodating. Going back tomorrow for a going away lunch.

We really enjoyed this restaurant, the ambiance and service were great but when upper management left, the bartender changed the really nice background music to very disruptive, loud pop country music and it was difficult to enjoy. When we asked about the sudden music change, we were just told that that specific bartender does this all the time. Ambiance would have gotten a five without that disruptive move.

Fish & Farm has been on my To Visit list for a long time. I finally got the chance to dine there for dinner and was not disappointed in the food in the slightest. We thoroughly enjoy the NY steak, crusted ahi, salmon, and seafood risotto special. The only low point was the service, our waiter didn't seem to be fully engaged with working that night. On a whole we greatly enjoyed our time at Fish & Farm.

There was something amiss here. The food was exceptional, but the ambiance was like an old Vegas casino. The menus were laminated and the service was like you'd get at a truck-stop diner. If the food wasn't as good as it was, it would have been a disaster of an evening.

It was our first time dining here and after a day of "touristing" which finished early, we called to see if we could move up our reservation. The restaurant was most accommodating. Ryan, our server, advised us on numerous dishes (given our first time) and his recommendations were excellent. Service was impeccable and efficient, responding to special requests (two of our group had food allergies). Highly recommend Fish & Farm!

Our waiter was not informed about the menu items. He did not order an entire dish for us and at the end of the evening did not apologize or offer any compensation. He gave us his name and said "come in again and I'll get those crab cakes ordered for you. " ah, yeah, that won't be happening.

I hope our server was new--he was very unpolished! When we told him we were not ready to order he came back every few seconds! Once the food arrived he seemed anxious to get rid of us, even though the place was relatively empty. We left a bowl of french fries virtually untouched (far too salty) but he never asked about it. He brought us the check without offering the dessert menu or asking if we wanted coffee; when we asked for coffee, he took the check and crumbled it up in front of us! It seemed more like he wasn't trained, rather than a deliberate effort to be rude. That marred an otherwise good experience as this is a comfortable restaurant with good food.

Stumbled across Fish & Farm when I was looking for a last minute reservation in the crowded downtown of San Francisco, hopefully trying to find something that could seat a part of four. The menu and photos on Open Table looked solid, so we went for it. Overall, it worked out to be a great spot. The images we saw on OT and Yelp showed a nice place, and while the interior looks nice, the exterior is a little dated and almost pub-like, so I was nervous for a second. Drinks were fantastic (awesome Moscow Mule!), and the menu was standard for the area, and tasted great. You'll find comparable menus in the area, so there was nothing that stood out, but it was still delicious. Price wise was a little much for the type of food (fish & chips, fried chicken), but not outrageous. Noise seemed moderate - the place was empty when we came in (glad we made the reservation - ha!), but it soon filled up, and was never obnoxious. Our booth was a little cramped for 4 people, but cozy enough.

While the food was good, you can't overcome your experience with abysmal service. We appreciate the manager and owner incessantly apologizing to us; however, it wasn't just the waiter's inattentiveness. It wasn't busy and we waited 20 mins before having to ask the busboy to take our drink order and to get our server. When he finally arrived at our table, we had to ask the waiter whether there were specials. Later on after ordering, we had to ask hostess to get our server to take a 2nd drink order. He passed us twice after she communicated to him. My dinner order arrived but my husband's did not. One staffer said it was coming and then another came later and said it was never placed.
At this point, it doesn't matter that the food was good and we received several apologies. Even without 1 dinner order, it was still $100 bucks for a poorly run establishment with the worst service I've ever experienced. Both of us have worked in the restaurant service industry. We understand and don't expect much. We never got mad or irate. We also heard another couple complain about the service and walk out. There are too many other restaurants in the City to go to.

The food was good, but the service here was awful. Three different servers helped our table, and they all seemed totally stoned and out of it. We had to ask three different times for our check, and couldn't have been more ready to get out of there by the time we were done. I will not go back and wouldn't recommend this to others based on the service.

This restaurant needs an overhaul - especially the food. Four of us went to dinner on a Saturday night. The food was very uneven - an expensive steak was tough and had an odd flavor; ahi was so-so; fried chicken was pretty good. When we complained about the steak, the waiter took it off the bill (thanks) but told us three times that he personally was taking care of the cost of it (doubtful) to get a bigger tip?? Two cocktails (Manhattan) came on the rocks, which is unheard of. Atmosphere is of an old-line restaurant which could be quaint but just succeeds in being dark and unpleasant. Sorry - would not recommend !
Loved the swing dancing downstairs!
Please keep the swing music DJ and dance event downstairs!
The food was definitely better than average, which made me happy. Also, the happy hour petit syrah was delicious!
I love going to dance events at happy hour, and being able to rely on great food and drinks!
My boyfriend complained bitterly about the service though. When transitioning from the bar to our table, for which we had a reservation, my boyfriend had to wait a long time to close out his tab at the bar. It seemed overly long for the number of people at the bar.
Overall I thought everything was great, especially the swing event.
The "uh oh" started right at the beginning . The hostess asked to seat us right in the front. When we suggested another table, she was not happy and moved us to a booth but left two menus at the first table. We had to ask for water throughout the entire meal from whomever we could get their attention. Anytime, we asked for an item, the wait staff would stop immediately and go do it; regardless of completing the task at hand. This often left half of us without water, without menus, without settings, etc. Staff seemed very inexperienced. The food was okay. Couple of our plates were salty. We won't be going back....
Very Disappointing Experience
We were going to the Punchline comedy club and we're looking for something close by to eat before the show. I saw the menu on line and it looked great. Small menu but had fish, burger, steak and salad options. And with the name Fish and Farm I expected fresh local and delicious. It was quit disappointing. We ordered the grilled calamari salad app and the crispy artichoke salad. The calamari app was tasteless and very lightly grilled. My wife sent it back and asked to take it of our bill. A better description for the artichoke salad would have been crunchy. The artichokes had skin and stem on them, the dressing was bland and the salad was mediocre at best. I had the cod. It was tasteless and the mango salsa was very basic with little flavor. The only saving grace was my wife got the filet mignon special and it was cooked perfect, the mashed potatoes were very taste and the demi Glace was delicious. Drinks came out slow and we had to remind the server to bring drinks twice. Overall this was a very disappointing experience. By the way, I owned a restaurant and was in the business for years. We are very big tippers and sensitive to how difficult the business can be and how hard restaurateurs, servers and the kitchen staff work. This is the very first negative review I have ever written about a restaurant. Hoping they just had a bad night.
I was looking for a good fish restaurant and found Fish&Farm via the web. In general I was disappointed, I expected farm fresh food and fresh fish however the fish selection was limited and everything seemed to be pre prepared and frozen. It did not live up to the name. Also the ambiance was more like a pub/sportbar and seemed more like a good place to watch sports with your buddies. The service was very good and was the bright spot of the evening.
