El Techo was bomb. Glad we made a reservation for Sunday brunch. Service was good, but kinda slow, probably because the place was packed. Really noisy, but again, it was packed. The view, the food and the drinks were on point. Prices were SF standard. I would 10/10 recommend.
The place is dope. Rooftop with a great view of downtown. The service is hit or miss. This last time we went, it was terrible.
Food was terrible and that’s being kind. Only positive is the sangria.
Stupid loud screaming kids ruined the afternoon. And a table full of loud, drunk birthday chicks.
Great place to eat and chat with friends. Food was pretty affordable, very fresh and tasty!
Great venue and service. Below avarage food and drinks (mimosas)
Food mediocre and very slow service
The BEST. Huarache on point. Guacamole A+
We celebrated the 12th year anniversary of our first date which was in the same location just a different restaurant at the time...
Great environment, awesome view of the city and great drinks to pair with the food.
First time there with my friend, beautiful set up greater than expected and food was fantastic! Quantity was a bit small but so tasty. DELICIOUS Bloody Maria!
Only confusing bit was being told where to sit, we sat in the sun outside at the long bar table overlooking the view - since most spots were reserved and booked we kept being told to move one seat down/one seat up within the first 10 minutes.
That small detail aside, we had a lot of fun and would come back again :)
The food was amazing, drinks were delicious, amazing view of downtown San Francisco. Wait staff was super nice and welcoming, service was fast.
Spectacular city views with a unique twist on Latin brunch cuisine. Good sized portions. Highly recommend !
Elevator didn't work-3 flights of steps, 30 minute wait for a table we reserved -service very poor, drinks not that good, food randomly came to the table w/o explanation. Food subpar, no cornbread as ordered. Meals very starchy, should offer fruit or salad as a side option.
maybe it's better as a bar only.
Absolutely wonderful experience, so full with the delicious food and the sangria was great! Beautiful view, comfortable temperature outside and super friendly staff. Thank you soo much!
I wasn’t expecting cigarette smoking on the roof. The space is not open enough for smoking. Food and service was nice
It was a first try for brunch - we had reservations but they didn’t seem to notice it or avoided to be bothered too much as it was quiet empty ... it does get very noisy and loud... service was hit and miss... good food and drinks...
What a hidden lil gem! I can’t say enough. Service, food, music, atmosphere!! This place is a MUST! I wanted to stay all day!
Delicious food (especially great for brunch) and beautiful view. Definitely make a reservation as it gets crowded.
Amazing views, great drinks, quick service and seating (thank you brunch reservation). Only thing that was horrible was the stairs to the top since the elevator was broken. I guess I worked off my meal before I had the chance to eat it. Overall great experience though!
Pretty good. Went for Saturday brunch. Food was tasty. Very good sangria at a reasonable price. You also get a view. Worth a visit.
Came for a brunch date on Labor Day. Kind of cramped seating but lively rooftop. Wasn’t wowed by the food, just mediocre/standard food.
Brunch, great energy, amazing food
Thanks for the flexibility for a high chair for a baby and accommodating our large party
the food was amazing! the service was great. the corn pancakes were so tasty and the shrimp cocktail ... everything really was delicious !
They were very accommodating to our large party of 12. They also brought a cute treat to our friend with a birthday!
Great view! Fast, efficient service during brunch. I would recommend booking ahead, wait times without reservations could be over an hour. I had their chorizo and eggs, pretty tasty but nothing out of the ordinary. I recommend maybe stopping by for appetizers and a pitcher of sangria to soak in the view.
I've just started going there w/my Senior mom in last several months I think this was our 4th time maybe. Unfortunately, though we had issues with a "slower than usual" elevator. so my mom walked up 3 flights of stairs with her cane. Even though it was an extra bit tiring she did it with a smile on her face and she insisted on walking down the stairs on way back out. Anways hopefully that will get cleared up soon but the food man just great! We tried for 1st time the DELICIOUS shrimp cocktail! I had the vegetable scramble and mommy had the gallo pinto. All just delicioso... will keep making a return visit
Great food. Great service. Great drinks.
Ran a 5k and celebrated the victory
We kept having to ask for things, and yes we had a big party but they brought out 2 plates and everybody else had to wait longer for theirs, it was just kinda bad service and it didn’t seem as busy as it has been in the past. I was a little disappointed because I used to enjoy going here.
Great view, great service. Even though I was late to my reservation (I called ahead of time to let them know), the staff was very friendly and super helpful.
Good vibe, great view, okay food, great drinks.
It was my brothers birthday and they helped to surprise him and the food.drinks and service were awesome. Thanks!!!
View is incredible - one of the best in the city - but you can barely hold a conversation with your table at brunch at noon.
Went to El Techo with friends who were visiting from out of town for brunch. I recommend making reservations for when the place opens to guarantee you get a table and so you can have a moment to enjoy the views before it gets packed. The noise level can get pretty intense, but it adds to the party ambiance of the space. Don't miss out on the bunuelos with chocolate sauce!
Nice ambiance. Great service and good food.
The weather was absolutely perfect for mine and my friends first visit. We enjoyed our breakfast and mimosas while over looking the beautiful city. Selena took great care of us and let us sit and chat for more than 2 hours. All the staffs were polite, courteous, and friendly. Great place to enjoy a good meal, nice weather, and mellow atmosphere. We will be back.
Ambiance and food is great at this place. Bring a jacket or an extra layer it can get cold on the rooftop.
