The Zagat Review
This "sensational" Ferry Building seafooder is a "dream come true for oyster lovers" , now boasting even "more beautiful views of the bay" courtesy of a heated patio; ok, it’s "not cheap" and there’s always a "crowd" , but somehow the staff holds it together with "wit and charm" ; P.S. there’s also a wine-country satellite in Napa’s Oxbow Market.

Zagat Mentions of Hog Island Oyster Co.

It has been a few years since the one time I visited here, but I wanted to leave a review because I still think of it. The year I visited Hog Island Oyster Co. was the year that within the span of a year I visited Mississippi, Boston, and San Francisco. Essentially I got to sample oysters from the Gulf, the Atlantic, and the Pacific within a few months. Best year ever! The oysters here were fresh and there were local and non-local varieties. You can go out of the city to find roadside stands with oysters, but this is a great way to sample them if you don't want to leave the city. It is definitely worth the wait if there is a line.

Great service with great food. Although I’m not a big fan of seafood, this place definitely convinced me that I should be. Got the grilled oysters, clam chowder, and the sliders. The food was so good that I only got one picture of all the things. Would recommend that you come early or make a reservation. Is a little on the pricier side.

Service is impeccable. We got our oysters before our drinks and weren’t even mad about it (because we were there for the oysters mainly), but before we knew it our server had sent out a “gift” from the kitchen to make up for it. The flavors were great. Coincidentally our least favorite oysters were the Hog Island namesake. But our favorites were the ones recommended by our server, so I would definitely trust a recommendation here! Also our “gift” was grilled oysters and we never try any cooked oyster - I am so happy he sent these out since I never would have known how delicious. Do yourself a favor and try the garlic and the chipotle grilled oysters.
