Pork chop cooked medium with fingerling potatoes, roasted bacon, sauteed spinach, salsa verde. $26 Fish & Farm, San Francisco
Omg, another great entree! This slab of a pork chop (it’s two frickin’ portions) was huge and delicous! I loved the salsa verde on top, it tasted amazing and the meat itself was cooked perfectly. It was SO tender and easy to cut. There are only a few entree items that Fish & Farm has kept on their menu since they’ve opened and this is one of them, and for good reason! I’ll admit that I wasn’t a huge fan of the stuff underneath though. It seemed a little clunky and superfluous compared to the amazing pork chop. I think the pork would do better on top of some sort of vegetable root puree. That way the pork gets to shine without the unnecessary distractions.
Ground beef patty cooked medium with a fried farm egg, grilled onions, white cheddar, house made pickles, secret sauce, Acme bun, and French fries with fried parsley. $14 plus $2 additional for egg Fish & Farm, San Francisco
Yum, this thing was delicious! You might think – a burger is a burger is a burger. Not so! There are plenty of shitty burgers out there and you all know it! This burger was absolutely nommy. It was also very large and I could only finish less that 3/4 of it. I didn’t even eat the top bun. I scraped the secret sauce off of it and set it aside. Way too much carbs already with the French fries and all.
The beef was so good and I loved their homemade pickles. Every part of that burger was good. The French fries was also delicious and I really like their dipping sauce. It took us awhile to figure out what it was, but I think we decided it was a horseradish bbq sauce. What a great combination! It was on the runny side, but it tasted great.

This was SUPER good! When I read the menu item, I thought it was going to be more like calamari a la planxa – something whole and more dry. I was pleasantly surprised when this more salad-y dish arrived! I will say that there was A LOT of dressing on the squid, but I really didn’t mind because it was so good. It’s some of my favorite flavors and I’m gonna admit that I even used some bread to soak of the leftover dressing at the end, lol! The squid had a nice texture that wasn’t rubbery and the dish was quite large for an appetizer portion, heck yeah! I would definitely order this again.
Bread and butter. Complimentary. Crusty bread with real butter = happy me!
Red endive, frisee, red pear, candied walnuts, pomegranates, and Humboldt Fog goat cheese with mustard vinaigrette. Menu says $11 but receipt says $12 – BOO, LAME!!! Fish & Farm, San Francisco
So the price discrepancy is totally lame! I don’t know if the menu wasn’t updated or out server was completely brain dead. I did mention during dinner that our server wasn’t very good compared to the server at the next table. Ours didn’t even give us the specials before we ordered. I didn’t even know there were specials available until the server at the adjacent table told her guests! Whatevs, our server was definitely “slow”, if you know what I mean.
This salad was tasty, but not very original.
Red bell pepper soup. Complimentary. I really liked this shot of free soup. It was hot and very flavorful.
I enjoyed these cocktails at Fish & Farm but I don’t think they were worth $12 a pop. You can get delicious, more intricate cocktails and other places for less money. And you’ll get larger pours! Fish & Farm, San Francisco
