This dish was boring and really was just an attempt to try to eat something healthy during our trip. They just used the usual vegetables and the sauce was basic.

Alamo Square Seafood Grill, San Francisco CA

I enjoyed the trout. It was a small, thin piece with not a lot of meat but it tasted good and was prepared well. I wasn’t a fan of the green peppercorn sauce though. The color was off-putting and I didn’t think that the sour taste did anything to elevate the trout.
