    The food and margaritas were good. The service was fine and did well with 6 people . Was good location and close to Red Devil lounge, where we went after. The dining room looked nothing like picture shown and could use some improvement.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 6/22/2012
    I went there for mexican with 9 more friends. Their appetizers are great, but their hamburguer with garlic french fries is not that good. The awful thing about the place was the insanely loud house music that was on. People were watching baseball, others were just trying to have dinner and a conversation - and yet the music was loud at if this was some kind of disco. I really don't get it. I had to scream in order to make myself heard to the people right in front of me at the table. It just doesn't make sense. The price was fair, though. Turn off the loud music and it's a pretty fair mexican restaurant.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 10/23/2011
    Not what I expected at all. The website makes it look like a semi-fancy casual dining experience. In real life, it just looks like a glorified sports bar. The food was just okay-- not mexican or latin american at all, but americanified to the extreme. Everything was fried, but nothing was unique or particularly flavorful. Kind of a step up from Chilis.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 10/14/2011
    The food was as good as I'd expect, though billing Parrilla as "Spanish" is a little disingenuous. This is a high end Mexican joint. As a local, I feel like Parilla misses their target a bit. They are next door to Amelié, one of the better wine bars in SF. They are als two doors down from the Bigfoot Lodge, one of the better small pubs in the Gulch. Thus, the blisteringly loud top-40 style music seemed off. A presentation more like the one you find at Tortilla Heights would do well here. Overall there was ample space but the place felt more like a bar than a grille. Given what surrounds them, a little re-calibration would make this a top-tier destination. In summary the food was good, the service was friendly, but the ambiance was off

    Dined on 10/1/2011
    I live two blocks away and really want to like this place, but the service is awful. We were seated at the worst table in the restaurant even though the place was half empty. No one approached the table for twenty minutes. We ordered and fifteen minutes later still no water, cocktails or appetizers. Nothing!! Sat there for a total of thirty five minutes. So we left. I've eaten here a couple times before and the service is always horrible. The food is okay, but nothing to get excited about. This place is a waste of time.

    I know this place gets mixed reviews, but when we went for a weekday lunch, it was not crowded, we had good service, and the food was decent. The chicken enchiladas and chicken burrito were better than the cheese enchiladas.

    Thefood was excellent and well-portioned. The guacamole with home-made chips was fantastic and plentiful! While I visited this restaurant some time ago and felt it was a bit too pricy and not much food for the buck, that has changed for the better!

    Grease is order of the day at this venue. If you are used to this type of cuisine you may be fine. If not prepare flush your digestive track. Fried ice cream the worst ever! The best buy and best item offered on the menu is the pitcher of Margaritas!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 5/15/2011
    I was very dissappointed that they had no idea I had made reservations for 10 people. They said something to the effect that they either don't associated with Open Table (I made reservations online) or that they don't check. That being said, the host/server was very kind and accomadating to our group. The guacamole with chips was awesome! The grilled chicken I ordered was a bit too overdone for my taste, but very flavorful. The pitcher of margaritas was a bit weak; neeed more tequila. As mentioned before, our server was very attentative and our food came fairly quickly. One last obervation: dining rm does not appear as on website; no tableclothes on tables and half the size as picture.

    Service was horrible. I came here using a Groupon and they forgot our appetizer, didn't offer refills to our water or soda, didn't pay much attention to see how our meal was, etc. Also, when we were done eating it took us 10 minutes later to ask for the check.
