Diner Reviews
  • "In general the food was good, though there was a little too much fried foods and the empanada was overly-salt. The fish tacos were great!"

  • "Great waiter--v. helpful--a little to loud w/the music but got used to it--food was good but limited selection of tapas--recommend the ceviche and the spiced garbanzo beans--no problem w/parking--a plus"

  • "Poquito offers a truly delicious array of Latin American dishes, from small plates to entrees. The service is friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. We've been here a few times now, and we have not been disappointed with a single dish. The empanadas are a house specialty and are certainly the best I've had in the city. This time, we ordered the steak entree on the menu, and it was the best steak I've had in SF. The cocktails and beer & wine list are also quite good."

  • "I met a friend there at 6:30 on a Thursday and the place was not crowded at all, so it was perfect for conversation. They have a nice bar and table seating up some stairs. If crowded, it would probably be noisy. We ordered coquetas and the maduros for appetizers, Fritada tacos and chicken sandwich for main. We liked all the food, but the waitress got the order wrong and brought the chicken platter we inquired about, rather than the chicken sandwich we actually ordered. In the end they took off one of the appetizers to compensate us for this, and for the record they offered to take the platter back and supply the sandwich, but we were short on time. The one waitress was a little spotty on checking if we needed anything."

  • "Great place for a social dinner with shared dishes - the Churrasco was particularly tasty! Cocktails are also unique and tasty."

  • "Found the abiance too dark and plain. Like eating in large closet. Waitress was nice but took multiple requests to get several items. Hibiscus Mimosas were delicious. Food was good but not outstanding."

  • "I enjoyed the selection of tapas which were offered. Most notable: camarones al mojo, red snapper taco, patatas bravas and sangria. We had a reservation but the dining room was closed for a private party. They accommodated us at the only table in the bar. Our service person Ella was personable and attentive. The restaurant only serves 2 red wines, although 5 are listed on the menu."

  • "Came to this restaurant on a Yelp rating. Excellent drinks at the bar, then met three friends for dinner. Food was excellent. Kitchen was slow and the waitress forgot a couple of things we ordered including a botched drink order. The second round of drinks were not as strong as the first. There was one very loud woman in the place and the noise she made was intolerable. It was like there were 10 yelling people in the restaurant, but it was because the acoustics were very poor in there. Too many reflective surfaces. Finally she left and the place became civilized and we were able to understand our dinner guests at the table. I think the restaurant personnel should be aware that loud people make the place unfriendly."

  • "The food was great esp the chorizo sliders, the red snapper and the ceviche. Watch out for the potato pancakes, they can get a bit droopy. The waiter was attentive and called us by our first names even if he forgot a couple of things. However, what Poquito really needs is some kind of noise absorption material. There were only a few tables full (it was a Monday night) but it sounded like a full on cocktail party with 100 guests"

  • "Friend in town visiting, needed something fun and close to chocolate lab (dessert) for 8 friends. Poquito was perfect. Sangria was delic, helped loosen the group up. Drinks, lively conversation, excellent flavored dishes. Service was solid, we were just out to have a good time, didn't feel rushed, the bill was brought out when we wanted. Recommend the mushroom epanadas, and the soyrizo (veggie) sliders. And only a block walk around the corner to Chocolate Lab for dessert. Tons of ample parking around 3rd and 22nd as well in the dogpatch."

  • "I was a reservation here for 3, showed up at the restaurant which was essentially empty. The bartender told us to wait for someone to seat us. We waited for 5 minutes, no one came. I went back to the bartender and asked if we should seat ourselves, she said yes. We go to sit down and immediately another employee shows up and said the tables are reserved in an extremely rude fashion. We ask if the next table over is reserved, same rude response. At that point in time, we decided to check out another restaurant instead of giving money to a restaurant with such horrible service. To be honest, it really seemed like the person didn't have any interest in serving us. In my 7 years in SF, I've never had such a bad experience."

  • "Waiter this time was mediocre, but the overall care and attendance from the staff made it the usual warm, inviting experience. Thank you!"
