Taking the day off of work with a quick BART ride to SF was the best summer mini-vacation ever! We had a fabulous lunch at Tadich Grill and then went shopping. Bloody marys were easy to drink at the bar, with the friendliest service ever, really set the mood!
After only a short wait of 10 minutes, we were seated and I ordered the crab legs saute and my husband, the crab louie and red chowder. We had a French waiter named Noel, who was outstanding -- evidently, he just started working there and he was extra polite, charming and helpful. He was a delight!
I actually watched my crab legs transfer from the the saute pan to the plate and to my table within 10 seconds (I was at the last table in the back; closest to the kitchen). I'm a real believer that perfect temperature always makes food taste best, and I so appreciate food being delivered that way. It's one of my main gripes with so many restaurants; food not served hot enough.
I highly recommend Tadich Grill for locals, and for summer tourists. I saw an unusually large amount of European tourists today in SF, and I really hope that they will get a chance to sample this SF gem on their vacation.
