Established in 1849, Tadich is the city's oldest restaurant, and still one of its most popular. Power-lunching politicians, techies and tourists alike belly up to the classic mahogany horseshoe bar and tuck into old-school San Francisco dishes such as crab Louis, shrimp a la Newburg, Hangtown Fry (oysters and eggs), and giant bowls of San Francisco cioppino (shellfish stew) accompanied by a big hunk of sourdough bread. If you prefer more private seating, let one of the white-coated waiters usher you into a wooden booth (with service bell). No reservations are accepted and there's invariably a line out the door, but it's worth it to experience a bit of Barbary Coast San Francisco.

True San Francisco cold day restaurant. This place is a hole in the wall that seems deceiving from the outside. Surprisingly the inside is very spacious. The bar takes up the majority of the restaurant with seating on one side at the bar and table seating on the other side. There are little knooks for table of 6-10 which is good. The servers have been working there for over 20 or 30 years. They're well seasoned. The food was amazing. Plain and simple. I definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for a good dinner!
