you go away for a week, and the food you miss most is....

So fortunate to have our water! I'd die of dehydration in Los Angeles!

Replacements for retired favorites?

Mussels & clams in spicy broth, Green salad with vinaigrette on a chilled plate at La Roca's Seafood in SF on 24th street. Dream of that place often!

Chowdown: All Season Restaurant (SF)

Worst service...ever. Will not go back. Orders came out unevenly, at best. Expressed complaints, food appeared but no apologies. Regardless of food quality, will never return. This was former Yet Wah location, so much friendlier to all ethnicities and much better food.

Beat Seafood pizza in the Bay Area?

Totally agree! Even better heated up the next day, adds a crispy edge to the crust.

Best place to buy cooked & cracked crab in San Francisco?

Baja Nob Hill was the neighborhood I.D. In the 80's when hubby had a bar on Post St. Nothing like glorifying!

Surprise, surprise! All Seasons Restaurant. Big Chinese in Diamond Hts [San Francisco]

Had dinner there Christmas day, based on Chowhound reviews, and previously loved Yet Wah. Food was excellent, service was horrible. Management didn't seem to care. Too bad.

Mexican catering in Oakland - small group

Taqueria Los Comadres in Montclair. 510-336-9002. Friends use them for events, eat there often and really fresh and tasty, plus reasonable.

Agree with you. Went on a recent Sunday. Wait, not too long. Sat on the deck, great service throughout, and food was tasty and fresh. Had sliders and fish & chips, no complaints and cleaned our plates. Good spot for kids, lots to see especially when sitting outside. On another note, while waiting inside, lots of fruit flies but none outside.

Banh Xeo - SF Dish of the Month May 2013

Went tonight for our first time tonight and had Banh Xeo for the first time, ala Chowhound of the Month. After reading other reports, I think we hit the jackpot! Crepe was beautifully crisped, no sogginess, even after adding the ingredients. Also had the spring roll which was delicious and fresh, also. Nice sauces and crispy fresh greens as accompaniements...will definitely return. Thanks Dragonboy!

Anchovies in six packs gone from Costco!

That Costco in Hayward carries anchovies, but a large can equivalent to several small cans.

Lake Tahoe in August

Produce before Sacramento...would that be Pedrick Produce in Dixon? They have the very best homemade(or homemade-like) flour tortillas and delicious slab bacon from the refrigerated section. Also, a huge selection of pickled items, nuts, grains and good, seasonal produce. We stop every time on our way from Oakland to Donner Summit.

Restaurant in style of Chez Panisse, etc. near Embarcadero or Fisherman's Wharf?

We last dined at Boulevard Jan. 2012. Service and food were both excellent, and felt the value/food cost was good. Seared scallops were my choice and were perfectly cooked; beef and lamb chops also ordered and all were really tasty. Friends brought wine from their vineyard, and the corkage was comped with another bottle purchased. Look forward to returning.

Great pizza in Truckee - where?

At Kingvale, the exit before Sugarbowl, there is a small family owned pizza place, Donner Pass Pizza. Everything is made from scratch and the toppings are all fresh. Also, soups and salads and S'mores dessert pizza. They're closed Monday & Tuesday, but you could try calling. Read the Yelp reviews for more info.

San Fran Wed and Thurs in May - Need expert foodie & bar help.

Not SF, but easy to access in Oakland. Chop Bar, reclaimed, recycled materials providing a great, rustic ambience. Great service, comfortable and knowledgeable. Excellent specialty drinks (my fave, the Spicy Q) and wines on tap. We're in our young 50's and love the mix of this place, and the staff accomodates everyone!. Best of Oakland in our book!

Grand Lake (Oakland): What to Eat and Where?

Went there based on Chowhound reviews. Service was slow and unattentive, atmosphere was very cold and stark; coats needed to stay warm. Being fair, did not order steaks or prime rib. Husband ordered burger; just okay , smallish-cooked fine, bun was ordinary. Fries okay. Ordered calamari, which was served on a bed of tortilla chips-odd. Wanted to like a neighborhood place, but disn't feel much warmth or effort from the staff, and the the food underwhelmed. Hope they can improve for their sake!

Corti Brothers [Sacramento]

After reading the replies, decided to head from 80 to 50 on our way home from Tahoe to East Bay.
So glad we ignored negative reviews because this is the great deli of old. Great breads, loved the sourdough rolls, and hefty sandwiches. Good selection of meats, cheeses and extras. Well worth the 8 mile side trip! Plus, they had a wonderful dried pasta selection, and found the big bucatini remembered from my childhood. Along with Pedrick Produce, Corti Brothers will be an addition to our Tahoe area stops.
