Food was fantastic! Service
Food was fantastic! Service was very attentive and helpful. Noise level is a bit loud making conversations difficult. Definite a place to repeat.

I've been to Tropisueno several
I've been to Tropisueno several times and have never been dissappointed with the food. The place is noisy and feels packed/crowded all the time, so don't go expecting a quiet romantic experience. Fun if you're looking for a boistrous atmosphere. The chicken mole is fine - not outstanding but tasty enough. The dish that has three kinds of pork on these sort of bread "sandals" (I think that's how they described them in the menu) was DELICIOUS! They also serve a very nice fresh strawberry lemonade. Can't remember what I ordered in the past, but it was always pretty tasty.

Very loud, so a bit difficult
Very loud, so a bit difficult to chat, but the food was fabulous! Huge servings, though. No one was able to finish their meal, even though it was all so tasty.

We've been here for dinner
We've been here for dinner 4 times. We enjoy the food. For some reason the heat was on and it was very uncomfortable in the restaurant - we felt like leaving but sat through the meal. This effected our experience. We didn't ask for the heat to be turned down though for some reason. Plantanos Fritos were excellent as an appetizer. House Margarita wasn't as great as the other reviews say-but the salt on the rim was outstanding. Chile Relleno/Picadillo was good but not great. Tampiqueno was well when I asked for medium- I'm afraid of what it would have looked like if I ordered well. Wasn't that tasty but was a huge hunk of meat. Service was good. Tables for 2 are too close together - also makes for uncomfotable situation.

Outstanding food and service. Although it is a little noisy and hot inside the restaurant, it was a great experience overall.

Fun Times at Tropisueño
Tropisueño is a fun and bustling mexican restaurant in the heart of the Yerba Buena ctr., the food is good and the plates are huge, yay!!! It is the atmosphere is vibrant and noisy and very alive there, I'm sure that has something to do with, but not completely, the excellent bartenders there, and last but not least the prices are very reasonable, so Tropisueño is really a great value all the way around.

A Mexican gem in San Francisco
Wonderful location for a beautiful Mexican restaurant. Service was excellent, food was outstanding and the margarita was strong! Can't say enough positive things about this restaurant.

Quality Mexican Food, Reasonable $
The food here is absolutely delicious and very reaosnably priced! We had the salmon appetizer and the chile verde. I would recommend both very highly.

What can I say. When all else fail. When your dinner date cancels. Call to cancel that table for 2 and make it for 1. Put on your headset, jam to your music and eat like there's no tomorrow. Take pictures for the darn people in your circle and assure them that you are one independent gal who can dine alone. The Sangria was a great buzz. Enough to make one hotter than the San Francisco weather we have been having.

I arrived early for my reservation and waited in the bar. The bartender was very good and wonderfully friendly. When my friend arrived we went to our table right away. The food was fabulous! My friend had the rellenos and I had the carnitas. Both were wonderful. Very flavorful and generous servings. Unfortunately I had eaten wayyy too many chips (with three kinds of salsa) and just couldn't finish it all. We did, however, go for the flan and I had a bite. YUM!
Will definitely go back.
5/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food....really fun ambiance. Definitely try the different ceviches. It was delicious. You won't be disappointed.

Always a pleasure to eat here
Food and service is consistently great. One of the best places to eat downtown that is reasonably priced for the quality and atmosphere. I had the salmon which was cooked to perfection, my table mates had the 1/2 of chicken which was a huge portion and yummy and we also had 2 orders of chile rellenos. All were delicious. The 3 salsas that come with the chips are awesome as well.
5/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place
Seems like we come here before the symphony a lot. We love the chips and salsa and enjoy trying a different margarita each time.
Our orders came out super fast, mine the very enchiladas and my bf the taco and enchilada. Only problem they weren't piping hot like usual. We called our waiter over and he quickly took our plates, within a few minutes we had a new meal piping hot. Our thanks for bringing us fresh plates. When we asked for our bill our waiter brought us a desert o. The house for our dishes being cold. Huge plus!
Know we will be back, will try chicken mole next time. The reviews are always positive.
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
The group and I had a really nice time. Things seemed to have improved recently overall, better service and food. Not that it was ever bad, but a noticeable improvement.
Thanks to everyone there that made our experience great.

Great mexican food in a posh area
Solid, clean mexican food (think platos, not burritos) at higher end prices but good value for the area, probably the cheapest place you can eat within a few blocks radius without eating fast food, with a nice enough ambiance that you can bring a date.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our dishes. They were delicious and didn't take long to reach our table. The chips came with three kinds of salsa and the drinks were unique and strong. We had a wonderful dining experience. It was my boyfriend's birthday and I asked in my online reservation and then later on the phone to have a dessert with a candle come out at the end but they did not follow through so that was pretty disappointing.

This place is great for an
This place is great for an after work drink or dinner. The salsas they serve are better than most, and I could eat an endless amount of their chips and salsas. The service is really great too - very friendly and efficient, and I noticed one of the hosts or managers walking through the dining room several times to check and make sure things were going smoothly. The prices are incredibly reasonable for San Francisco, making it an affordable option in the SOMA area.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
amazing food, great vibe
Only complaint was that it was WAY too hot inside. Good ventilation would make this a perfect dinner spot.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The menu is excellent the servers were very attentive the only issue was the temp. It was very hot in the Resturant but that was the only issue.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was great, as usual. Ordered the special margarita, tasty but weak, which is a bummer when they are $9 each!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great authentic Mexican food
From the chips and salsa to tacos and enchiladas, the food was delicious. The ambiance was lively; I could tell that this is a popular restaurant and I now know why. Great for those that live/work in SoMa/FiDi.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not your usual Mexican food
We loved the Trio of salsas that came with the chips! Creamy and spicy, tomatillo and avocado and fire roasted. Great variety! We had the shrimp ceviche to start with and it was very fresh tasting just the right amount of spice and mangoes for sweetness. The Chicken Mole was very flavorful and the meat fell off the bones. The Flan was traditional caramel which we love and it had the texture of traditional flan not the overly creamy box version. Our waiter Marcos was delightful and we had a great evening! Wonderful atmosphere and decor. Highly recommend Tropisueno!

Went here while on vacation after a friend recommended it... and it was AMAZING!!!!! Will definitely be returning.

My boyfriend and I only had one night in San Fran on our trip to CA and asked our concierge to recommend a nice sit down Mexican restaurant for my birthday dinner.
The three salsas they serve are delicious. Regular, verde and a third creamy tomato salsa that was incredible. We ordered the Empanadas de Hongos appetizer, Tampiqueno and Enchiladas. The Enchiladas were on the special menu and don't appear to be listed any longer, but they were in a creamy sauce, which we'd never had before and the flavor was great. Tampiqueno was just what I thought it would be and did not disappoint.
For dessert, we were brought a complementary tres leches cake with a candle--AMAZING. White sangria was great too.
Great ambiance and friendly waitress.

I would have rated this experience
I would have rated this experience 5-star had it not been due to how warm the restaurant was and the low lighting preventing me from being able to read the menu. The man sitting at the table next to us had the same problem and was using his smartphone as a flashlight.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good variation of tequila cocktails
Love the free chips/salsa (3 kinds) and great tequila menu. Will definitely go back.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Salsa and Beef Cheeks Tacos
Great Salsa and the beef cheeks tacos was fantastic. We had the lech cake soaked in coconut milk ooohh my. Fantastic place to eat just a little loud.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Exceptional food & service
Fresh food, over-and-above service made for an amazing experience our first evening of our San Francisco adventure. We sat outside, they brought us candles (which the server went out of his way to keep lit), we ate well (the guacamole & tequila-based drinks were to die for). We will be back here again! In fact, we had dinner there twice on a 3 night trip!
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Ambience, Mediocre Food
The place itself was loud but was well decorated, had good ambience, and our waitress was very nice and energetic. The food was just so-so. For the price and the location I thought it would be a lot better. They had great chips and salsa but the meat dishes were all bland and not very flavorful.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
You had me at thin, crispy chips. .
Delicious food, attentive wait staff (in the best way- often refilling our water, but letting our conversation flow), happy diners and workers. The chips and dips that were brought to the table right away were great and often refilled. We didn't drink, which meant we both left for for about $20 a plate after tax and tip, which seemed very reasonable for such great food in the middle of the city.

We had a fun evening with colleagues. The wait staff was a little slow to respond but not terrible for a busy night. The salsas were excellent.

Awesome mexican restaurant
By far, the best Mexican restaurant I've ever been in the States and I'm from Mexico city. I loved that they don't translate the name of the dishes, they actually respect the Mexican cuisine.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of my favorite spots
I like to stop in for dinner with friends, grab a house margarita (with chili salt - yum!) and try something on the menu I haven't already had. Every dish I've had has been delicious and the staff is very friendly. It gets noisy though so this is not a spot for a romantic evening but it's just great for catching up with a group of friends in a fun atmosphere.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
awesome food and drinks
The pork dish was amazing and the hibiscus drinks were delicious!
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
We really enjoyed our dinner here. Great food, service was attentive and very reasonable prices. I really liked the design of the place as well. Also love the Chupa-chups they give you with the bill! Would definitely go back next time I am in San Francisco.

Dinner with the gals
Good place to have dinner with the girls, food was overall good, the chips and guac was amazing.

good food, drinks, great service. but no coffee? i don't get that.

Delicious Mexican food, downtown SF
Had dinner with a group of 5. Great food with high-quality ingredients. Chips and salsa were delicious. Prices are fair.

Tons of fun, but loud
I absolutely love this place! Tons of fun, great food and drinks, vibrant ambience. It's a bit loud for my taste, but it's completely worth it and I've been there several times and would definitely go back.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Part of our group arrived early. Table was ready and they treated us well even though 4 or our six was early. Great food!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and fast service!
Probably the best "restaurant" Mexican food I've had. We were blown away by how quickly try brought our food. The only thing that seemed to be a negative were the rice and beans - they weren't as good as the rest of the food.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Some girlfriends and I came on a Saturday night dinner. It was really packed but the staff did their best to accomodate us as fast as they could. The food was very good. Being Mexican and being raised eating Mexican food, I could tell the food was very authentic. I really like it a lot and so did my friends. If ever out downtown and ready for dinner or just a bite to eat, will definitely hit up this place!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delicious date night
I don't need to go on and on about this resteraunt. It's solid. Good drinks (margarita with st.germains!), good food, excellent service. We will be back!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food, service, and drinks
The food, service, and drinks are great. It's dimly lit, and loud enough that you can't hear the tables next to you. This is a great date spot. Not so much if you're going just for the food and want to see what you are eating.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was my second time to
This was my second time to Tropisueno, and it was not as great as the first which was disappointing but it was still great! The hostess was curt and rude, seemed stressed. I had put in a reservation and asked to extend to +1 on the phone, but she admonished me at the door for not letting her know before hand that I needed a different arrangement. This was unfortunate, but the rest of the night fared better. The food was great - enchiladas are highly recommended, and the margaritas were delicious! Tropisueno has great drinks and a great mood for a gathering of friends or lovers, a bit of a hidden spot in the FiDi but definitely worth the try.
