Well, it was ok but seriously overpriced for one 2lb crab and a bowl of noodles, $69 dollars for crab steamed in wine and served in oil. Way to oily! What ever happened to a crab steamed and served with drawn butter? I will do...More

If there is a place for crab lovers, it must be Crustacean. I am very impressed with the giant Dungeoness crab garlic butter sauce which is tasty and very well eye catching presentation. The crab meat is firm, fresh, and flavorful. The sauce is just...More

Excellent seafood but the crab is something else. Highly recommended, especially with the garlic noodles. Starters are all very yummy. The shrimp toast is baguette based and very well done.

We ordered the roasted crab: it is incredibly tasty, with specks of black peppers. What I didn't realize at first was what I thought was the sauce on the plate was actually oil. I stopped dipping my crab in it. I have to take off...More

Been coming here 10 plus years and absolutely love this place. The garlic roast crab is outstanding and consistent and the best pick of crabs. Other favorites salt and pepper calamari and garlic noodles.

It's a good thing I liked the person I ate here with, because we indulged in the garlic noodles and it was oozing out of my pores after. It is by far one of the most heavenly tastes I have experienced from a restaurant. If...More

I had a pretty good dinner with excellent service. I had the tiger prawns with garlic noodles. I think 4 Tiger prawns with noodles for $39 is pretty pricey. My other friends had crab cakes and he almost licked his plate.

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
