    This review is for the full-service, seated dinner on the top floor. The menu features a variety of affordable appetizers / small plates and entrees. The various ceviches stood out as being particularly flavorful and tasty. Entree-wise, the halibut looks good on the menu -- but in a city where upscale halibut dishes are creatively presented and more importantly spot-on flavor-wise, this one just didn't match up. The wine list offers some nice varietals that aren't easily found elsewhere. The service was pleasant.

    I have never had bad service at LaTaza. The food is much better than the building and menu would suggest, with fresh ingredients prepared expertly and generous portions at a reasonable price. It's easy to locate the cafe downstairs/dining upstairs on a bustling stretch of 18th Street just past Castro Street.

    There are several places in SF that serve Peruvian cuisine and La Taza holds its own against any of them. The preparations are more rustic and probably closer to the original than what you will find elsewhere. Full service only happens on the top floor of three. It's attentive and perhaps a bit more than you would like. Even then, the whole experience is just fine. On sunny days choose the balcony. For those that eschew mini-chains, La Taza is actually not one of them; though their website implies otherwise. It's the only restaurant of their three "cafe" locations. Good food in somewhat spartan atmosphere makes you feel like you are are getting the real thing. It all works and it tastes great.
