A word from El Techo de Lolinda
El Techo is the heated and covered open-air rooftop restaurant above Lolinda. Offering sweeping city views, pan-Latin American casual cuisine, and crafty classic cocktails, we are the perfect venue for your celebration or as a compliment to your dinner at the Mission's finest steakhouse. Fun food, festive cocktails "del Sol" and the best rooftop skyline in SF.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Graet brunch, great views, good service, excellent Mexican choices, quesadillas very good."

  • "Nothing can beat eating on a rooftop, especially one as nice as El Techo. The drinks were great and they do some of their signature items well (beignets, cornbread) but the food was just good--the french bread was certainly underwhelming in a city filled with brunch finds. The hosts were really friendly!"

  • "Loose the charming guy at the front door; no greeting because he was too busy trying to socialize with someone. What is his purpose , anyway? We will not be visiting you again because of him- he definitely would not be the face of my business. Service was prompt at first but then became MIA, order was mixed up, wrong food was served, server was absent for nearly entire service cycle. My review stops here because this was enough for me to make a judgement."

  • "You definitely need a reservation for a weekend brunch/lunch here. So make it WAY ahead of time because it seems like the reservations book up a week or two in advance. This place is great. A little pricey for a brunch but a great spot for a "little bit more special than normal" brunch. We took some friends from out of town. I would highly recommend the heuvos rancheros, the steak breakfast option (can't remember the name) and the guacamole for an appetizer. Delish. The bloody marys weren't my favorite, sort of lacked flavor. But nothing that a splash of hot sauce can't fix."

  • "Although the prices at El Techo may shock you a bit, the food is delicious and the roof view and ambience can't be beat."

  • "While El Techo de Lolinda can be a bit much to digest in the evenings, the weekend brunch is a well-kept secret. You can walk up and be immediately seated. The food is outstanding, with all the standard lunch fare with a Latin American twist - the egg dishes and french toast are especially good. There are also plenty of brunch cocktail options, as well as micheladas and beers."

  • "Great rooftop for a delicious brunch. Definitely recommend the ceviche and guac, and excellent classic margs."

  • "Attentive service, flavorful food with quality ingredients and good portions, unique drinks, the best rooftop in the city.. Its the complete package. I'm so "over" places that make you wait in a 45 minute line in cold weather for a table for brunch. El Techo de Lolinda is so civilized and also fun. It's my new favorite brunch spot."
