Leo's Oyster Bar
The food just wasn't as good as I would have liked for the price point it was at. Else, cool ambience and friendly wait staff.
Cocktails were delicious and food was very yummy!
Great interior design + fresh seafood in a SF central location. Can’t go wrong!
Incredibly loud, noisy, had to yell to have a conversation. Small bar table, very limited menu. Food was mediocre. Will not be returning.
If the food you eat is part of the name of the restaurant, as in “oysters”, it’s excellent. Caution on ordering anything else at this establishment. There are no cooks just people that prepare.
Excellent scene, great food and the service level was incredible, I will be back.
Food and service terrific. Rattan chairs are uncomfortable.
We ordered the tator tots, crab macaroni and cheese and a seafood dish. The tator tots were over cooked, the Mac and cheese fell flat and tasted fishy, and the shrimp in the seafood dish were the sizes of dimes. The cocktails were delicious and ambiance is great. However, we barely touched our food and no one asked whether we liked it or not, the service was extremely slow, and we paid $80 for an inedible meal.
First time here and instead of a table decided to sit at the bar. (The tables are set very close to each other so you would be close to other diners.) We had great, friendly service from Cassandra and all the others that night from start to finish. The food was fresh and tasted great. Street parking was easy in this neighborhood late on a Saturday night. Will definitely be back!
Favorite place to dine. Everything is fresh and delicious.
Took clients to dinner here and they loved it! The service was perfect! My client is gluten free and diary intolerant- they went over and beyond to help. Really delicious meal and good drinks
Great food, fun atmosphere. Drinks, appetizers were all good. Staff very friendly.
I was in San Francisco for business and wanted to arrange a dinner out for a group of 8 persons of different ages and culinary tastes. Leo’s had been highly recommended by a local, and did not disappoint! We had a great evening and everyone was very complimentary about the creative menu, delicious dishes, attractive atmosphere and engaging servers. A top notch dining experience!
I got food born illness here after my reservation. I think it was the oysters. I am so bummed! I love this place and everything about it- just not a good day for oysters i guess. I will continue to go back and get other things from the menu
The steak was preferred medium rare, but came out more medium well. The server made it right, and now we know for the future to order rare to get medium rare. Otherwise a fantastic experience, I will be back!
The food was so tasty. Ambiance was amazing and the service was outstanding!
This place is incredibly overpriced, but the interior is cute.
I booked it because I heard they had a New York style seafood tower and the photos look cute on Insta. The seafood tower left a lot to be desired. Device was great and ambiance was great but the seafood tower wasn’t even close.
My foodie Dad was visiting from out of town and I wanted to show him where the current state of seafood is at; We were not disappointed. Oysters Eloise were delicious and their "tater tot" was wonderful. I could go back and try so many new things. Dad loved his lobster roll and the crab mac and cheese was tasty. Looking forward to my next visit!
Great Happy hour cocktails and oysters! I like the interior of the place - very cozy and chic. Staff was professional and friendly. Overall, great date night spot.
Best spot for oysters and martinis anywhere.
fabulous food and atmosphere but expensive
The music was too loud, causing everyone to talk loudly - making for a poor ambience.
Service was excellent and the ambiance is above par!
Very fun night at Leo’s - these guys know the business of proper shellfish care - awesome theater. Fantastic service. Bar is very loud - only downside - we chose the raw bar end so it was acceptable.
I loved every single thing about the place, from the food to the spectacular service by our server, Chris. Will definitely be back!
Very aesthetic restaurant, consistently good food - each dish was very delicious. The atmosphere is fun and eclectic. Would come here again.
I was really looking forward to a nice night out with my boyfriend - nice cocktails, great food etc. The evening was a complete disappointment. I had the lobster roll and a salad. The lobster roll was all claw meat - no tail meat and was very grainy and mealy and not a lot of meat. My salad was ok but a little boring. the beets were overcooked and the greens were not very fresh. My boyfriend had the octopus and some oysters. He was not unhappy with his meal but equally did not think it anything special. For the price we expected more. But even worse than the food was our table. It was right at the beginning of the dining room and everyone walking past kept bumping into it. It was also the size of a side table and nowhere near big enough to hold food for two. We had a lovely couple sitting next to us but they were literally right on top of us. there was maybe an inch between the tables so we had no privacy whatsoever. And then there was the issue of extremely loud and off-putting music playing. All in all this was an atrocious experience and one which we payed a pretty penny for. Totally not worth it.
We were sat in the back by a table with a big party, I could only assume it was a group that was hard of hearing because they never stopped yelling, which made it hard to hear anything and lessened the experience.
We had a brilliant time at Leo’s Oyster bar. The food was outstanding with lots of fresh and unique flavours. The waitress was really helpful with her recommendations and she made our meal really special with a few extras as we were celebrating our honeymoon. The decor was also really trendy and fun! If we’re ever in SF again we will definitely come back!
Awful decor; terrible, unbearable noise level; raw bar primarily-no baked or grilled fish.
Excellent seafood, oysters were great along with the crab claws.
One of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco. Arrived at 6:20 for my 6:30 reservations and got seated right away. The dinner lasted 5 glorious hours and we left at 11:30 pm full and happy.
Cocktails of vodka martini, gin gimlet were to die for, specially the 21 seeds hibiscus gapefruit paloma which is new on the menu.
started with the kampachi ceviche and it was fresh and tasty with large pieces of fish.
As always the see food plateau was fresh and delicious filled with different oysters, shrimp and other seafood. We then got a complementary caviar dish which was perfection and salty and tasty and pop in your mouth.
salads, fries, lobster pasta, the amercian wagyu and lobster roll were all to die for. Could not pick a favorite as they were done to perfection.
After 2 bottles of Ruinart Rose, we ordered a beautiful bold bottle of red for our entrees with the help of the knowledgeable sommelier.
To add to our happiness we then ordered desserts, OMG it was instant satisfaction and ended the evening with chocolate espresso martini.
Can't wait to go back and do it all over again. Thank you Leo's Oyster Bar for making it another unforgettable evening for us. See you soon.
Delicious food, great service, and super cute décor! GM Stefan and staff went above and beyond
Excellent as usual.
Do not sit in the back room. Deadly feel, dark, and slow service.
This place is incredible. Best oysters in SF in my opinion.
Great service , very nice experience
It was my first time at Leo’s and I wanted to do something special for my boyfriend because I had a surprise announcement. They sat us in the corner I requested and helped make my surprise extra special. I seriously will never forget the kindness of this restaurant. Thank you so much for everything from the attention to detail and service to the delicious food!
