Wine selection was great. Food was tasty but nothing too impressive.
They were nice to accommodate our party of 10 last minute.
Overall service was fine with nothing really to complain amount. Would try again and maybe sit on the bar side and get cocktails.
Amazing food... great time and great service.. And the wine was flowing.
The food was fine, but the service ruined it.
Went on Valentines Day, to say they were critically understaffed would be putting it lightly. We were seated 30 mins after our reservation time, even though the place as half full. All the staff were working hard but it was a Friday night and the service was very disappointing. Won’t be coming back.
We had dinner here on Valentine's Day. Despite having a reservation, the host seated us in the bar area rather than in the dining area, and I'd recommend that if you are at Destino to eat, learn from our mistake and don't let them seat you on the bar side. Our server was one of the bartenders, and the service was very slow. We didn't even get acknowledged or get waters for about 15 minutes after being seated, and it was another 10 minutes before we were asked about drinks. After that the service got a little better, but was still slow. The bar was busy and at one point they turned the music up dramatically on that side, after that it was pretty difficult to converse.
The food was really delicious (a couple dishes were not very hot, I think it's probably because they sat there for quite a while before our server went to pick them up) and we did enjoy everything we ordered. But if we go back we won't make the mistake of allowing them to seat us in what felt like the "second class citizen" area. There are a couple other tables on that side, and those diners seemed to be having similar problems with the service.
I am pretty sure we'd have fully enjoyed things had we been seated on the restaurant side.
They didn’t give me my open table reservation points!!!
The service was awful. Our server knew nothing about wine, he didn't know how to open the bottle or what a decantur was. All the food was extremely overly salty. Portions were very small and costly for their size. My date was still hungry after dinner and we went somewhere else for him to eat. The restaurant was terribly loud. I will never return
It was fine
The signature drink was tasty and the food was good but the service was super slow. It took forever for our group of 7 to get a server to take our order and even longer for the food to arrive.
Went for friends birthday. At the beginning we had good service but then it quickly crashed. A 40 minute wait for two Pesco sours. Items we ordered were never delivered to table after I asked it was again affirmed that I had ordered the item and it was still never delivered. I keep trying this place but they seem hit or miss.
Was fun and good food
Get the Arepa!!!!!
Ridiculous bad service. Understaffed. Half empty restaurant and still took forever for someone to greet and sit you. Takes forever to get orders in, waters, drink, etc. Wouldn’t bother coming here. It’s a shame since it used to be a great place.
Overall we were very glad we picked Destino vs a restaurant with a fixed price NYE menu.
They were a little bit understaffed for the crowd that showed up, but the food was as delicious as always!!!
Went there for our company's holiday party. Organizing was painless, the team was very accommodating, even for a last minute event. Food was delicious and varied. Great options for GF, DF and vegetarians. Perfect amount of food. Service was lovely. Ambiance is charming. Drinks were tasty. Highly recommend this little gem on Market street.
They staff was amazing and very accommodating. The food was delicious. They let us bring our own cake for the birthday celebration. Amazing experience. They personalised the menu for our birthday table.
Very good food and service, but a bit pricey if you want an economical meal beyond small plates
We had a great comfort food dinner, loved that portions were not too big so we could try different things, flavors were great, ambiance very relaxed, cozy, we will be back.
Had not been here in years. Really used to love this place. Lost its charm and food quality/flavor seemed to decrease.
Family event dinner! Love this place!
I would never recommend this place to anyone, service is very poor food was more or less in edible. I think maybe it’s a little bit more of a bar scene.
Excellent innovative original dishes. Delicious food and great service. Great ambiance. Thoroughly enjoyable experience. Heavy traffic and very limited parking only downside. Must take MUNI next time!
Excellent service. Flan was delicious as were the empanadas and yucca nachos! We sat in a nice quiet corner of the bar.
Great dinner! Awesome staff!! A hundred percent recommended!
Great food! Very quiet..
We had an awesome time at Destino! Brought a big group (22 people) for a birthday celebration and Destino accommodated ya even though our reservation was for 16. Great value/food/drinks!
I’ll be back!
Always great food here and good service. Very consistent.
Always good food and great service. Would highly recommend any occasion here.
The food appears pre-made and not fresh or interesting. I would not recommend this restaurant to others.
Great service! And pretty good food.
Loved the food! Fav is lomo saltado and pork empanadas
I gave them a second chance thanks to the owner extending a gift certificate. The food was great! The Lechon is very tasty and everyone at the table wanted a bite.
We happened upon Destino on a Sunday evening and it will be a new go-to restaurant for us in the city. Every item we ordered from the small plates/tapas options was incredible. Full of flavor, clean finish and really perfectly done. We had THE BEST service from the bartender Aaron. The restaurant was slow and he basically served as our own personal mixologist. It was such a pleasant change to have a bartender who mixes so many different drinks with joy. The hostess was amazing too. We will be back!
the best peruvian!
Great food and service. My go to spot for Peruvian!
Great food and drinks
Really enjoyed it, but was a little pricey for what I got.
Great place and good food!!
The neighborhood restaurant featuring really good cocktails and food!!
A favorite in SF- a go-to spot for yummy latin cuisine....They are pretty good at consistency for their tapas and cocktails...good wine list too!
They don’t adjust food items everything is pre made. I’m allergic to quinoa and it was in majority of their foods so I could not try anything
