Tadich Grill has hosted both famous and regular folks. The famous have ranged from Joe Montana to Clark Gable to Roger Ebert who wrote, “What Casa Blanca is to the movies…you are to fish.” They all rave about food quality in general, the best seafood in particular, proper brisk service and a tether to tradition that’s as old as the city of San Francisco itself.

No matter what religion you are, you are not truly baptized until you have lunch or dinner at Tadich Grill.

Few restaurants last 50 years, let alone 162... In a city known for cutting-edge restaurants, Tadich’s is old-fashioned, a nostalgic shrine to local piscine tradition.

SAN FRANCISCO MAGAZINE

“The vintage 1849 fish house is San Francisco’s oldest restaurant, and you get the impression some of the waiters have been working there since day one. This financial district landmark is all about the atmosphere, which is urban, and old school.  Tourists and business folks crowd the doorway to vie for one of the tables. Regulars know to grab a seat at the counter and to keep their order simple, ask for what’s fresh, have it grilled and wash it down with a martini or three. Tadich Grill is that kind of place.”  

NATION’S RETAURANT NEWS

“Many say the fact that nothing has changed at Tadich Grill in living memory is the reason it’s still almost always packed.  The fish is as varied and fresh as the last several dozen visits, the faces of the wait staff haven’t changed for decades it seems, and the clatter and chattering mix of business folk and laughing families is as it always has been.” 

10 OF THE WORLD’S GREATEST OLD DINING INSTITUTIONS

“The oldest continuously running restaurant in San Francisco, the bustling Tadich offers a magical brand of vibrant timelessness: Thursday will always be corned-beef-and-cabbage day, and the waiters remain white-jacketed and efficient. All seafood is locally sourced, and nothing overfished is offered. Festive without being stuffy, it offers a taste of the San Francisco of yore while embracing the present day.”  read more>>

NEW YORK TIMES

“Few restaurants last 50 years, let alone 162. Tadich’s is older than Gage and Tollner and Peter Luger in Brooklyn, almost as old as Antoine’s in olde New Orleans.  In a city known for cutting-edge restaurants, Tadich’s is old-fashioned, a nostalgic shrine to local piscine tradition.”

GOURMET MAGAZINE

“Seafood cooked rare by request only” warns the old-fashioned menu of TADICH GRILL, which goes back to the time of the Gold Rush. Tadich’s thoroughly panfried sand dabs, not to mention its Dungeness Crab Louie and charcoal-broiled chops and steaks, suit plenty of San Franciscans whose great grandfathers ate the same dishes in their day.”

SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

“Crossing the threshold feels like walking into a men’s club, with dark wood, brass accents and private booths that over the years have seen more than their share of deal-closing lunches and occasional indiscretions.  The menu of seafood, creamy casseroles and hearty stews may be the draw for many, but continuity and nostalgia is what brings most back day after day, week after week, year after year.”
