Foursquare Tips

  • The 5th oldest restaurant in the country. Established in 1867
  • Charcoal grilled Petrale Sole was good. Great for a large group if you get one of the private booths.
  • Try the Oysters - Incredibly fresh, crisp oysters at one of the classiest, old-school fine dining restaurants in San Francisco. Always start with the oysters! (via @Foodspotting)
  • Great sour dough bread.
  • Try the Oysters - with worcestershire sauce
  • The peppered swordfish is heavily covered in pepper
  • Try the Charcoal Broiled Sweetbreads with Bacon. If you really, really like Sweetbreads, you'll love this rustic dish!
  • Sand dabs when you can get them.
  • A family recipe vinaigrette is spot on
  • Don't see it on the menu often but kampachi is a nice delicate yet meaty fish
  • Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls: After an extended hiatus, San Francisco institutionSams Grill is finally back open. Stop by for a martini after work.
  • If you want to get something meaty, you gotta do the sweetbreads (there are three kinds, including one version charcoal-broiled with baconhello).
  • Theres a full bar where you can get with a martini, and youll want to snag one of the private and curtained wood booths. There are tables as well, but really, its all about the booths.
  • It was awesome. The New York steak is hella good. Stephano is great. We were in the chairmans booth all the way in the back. It rocked.
  • The staff is great - pleasant and most accommodating. Good food. Delicious cocktail sauce.
  • Try the Boston Cream Pie
  • Try the Artichoke Hearts
  • Try the Au Gratin Potatoes - No shortage of cream here.
  • Try the Boned Rex Sole a la Sam - "A la Sam" really means butter. Lots of it. And it's good.
  • Try the Manhattan - Perfect Manhattan.
