Disappointed with the food. The dishes were pricey. 3 of the group found their dishes overly salty and 1 was under salted.

Lovely staff and great drinks. Quiet enough to have a good conversation.

If you’ve ever had Latin/Peruvian food this is not the place to go. Was completely disappointed with the food, taste felt more Spanish than anything else but it wasn’t even good.

Took my son and his girlfriend here for a nice family evening out. I had heard that the food was wonderful and the ratings on Open Table were good, so we traveled a distance to give it a try. I have to saythat it was 100% worth the drive. The atmosphere was warm and cozy. The drinks were definitely unique and delicious. The food was so delicious that I couldn't leave my hubby out... I had to take a plate home for him! And, the service was spot on. My son didn't love his drink, so the waiter quickly obliged him with a replacement free of charge. Everything about this meal was on par with my experience at finer dining establishments. Beautiful meal & memories! Well done Destino! 😊

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Destino. We split an empenada, ceviche, plantain chips, salad, and casserole. I had a Pisco Sour - mmmmmmm, and he had wine. We were not overly stuffed, but pleasantly satisfied with our dinner. Kudos to Destino!

We went to the bar side first which had very entertaining 80s music videos playing. The staff were really friendly and quick. The dinner itself was delicious. Staff was extremely attentive and the feel of the place was lively but still comfortable. Definitely a place worth visiting.

Gracious service, fun menu with lots of creative takes on S.American fare. We felt prices were extremely reasonable for S.F. We had an early 7 pm dinner and it was fairly quiet in the dining room, although the bar side was lively. By the time we left , the whole place was abuzz and there were a couple of large families dining. We enjoyed people watching while we ate at the window counter facing Market st. We will be back!
