What Insiders Are Saying
A rooftop bar in the Mission, El Techo de Lolinda is where you should be when the sun's out.
Food portions small and overpriced. Go for the view and drinks only.
el Techo is really consistent, that’s what i love about it. Always great, always a little boozy 😉
I was surprised how good it was.
Great place for a beautiful, sunny day! Plus you can make reservations for brunch. Only thing was we had our food before our drinks came, but otherwise everything was great.
Food and service perfect! Party of 7 and everyone enjoyed their food and pitchers of margaritas made the brunch fantastic!
This is a great place for brunch! I got the chorizo scramble and it was delicious. Not only is the food delicious, but the city views from the rooftop are just incredible. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
Best carnitas I’ve ever had! Will go back every time I’m in the city! Beautiful city views!
Amazing location with awesome authentic food and cocktails. We did not want to leave. Service was good if a bit grumpy!!
Wished el techno would accommodate better for birthdays! But at least the waitress brought out our ordered dessert with a candle!
Food good but not outstanding. Served plain white sliced toast with scramble. Should have done better - even biscuit used in poached eggs. Fun atmosphere with view. Casual simple. Service ok. We had brunch so maybe regular menu is different.
What a great brunch. Great service, great food. Beautiful view!
One of the only rooftop bar/restaurants in San Francisco and it was a glorious day for a Sunday brunch celebrating my friend's birthday. Stunning view of city, great food and service, and windscreens/umbrellas for shade. They have heaters too, but not needed.
Great spot for brunch & dinner. Wonderful view of the city and great place to celebrate
Great food. Great view when the weathers is nice. Can get crowded so make reservations even for brunch.
Great views, one-of-a-kind rooftop ambiance for this part of SF. There are tasty drinks and yummy food. The service is a bit rough around the edges, but I wouldn't let that stop you from visiting.
Nice brunch spot in the Mission with great rooftop views and excellent food at very reasonable prices. Service was also excellent.
The food is good, but the prices do not warrant the the food being served. The empanadas are way over priced---Management should consider adding a third empanada to the order, but keep the price the same. But I am always happy to eat at El Techo.
This is my favorite place for brunch! We go here every time we are in the city!!
I've been to El Techo many times and our experience is typically great. However, it took 1 hour for our main dish to arrive (1 plate of Huevos Rancheros). We followed up with hour waitress twice and she just said the kitchen was backed up but didn't seem to be very bothered. I pointed out that we had an appointment to get to, and she still didn't seem to care about getting us our food any faster. Definitely disappointed with service!
Great food my wife and I enjoyed. Authentic flavor. Well made cocktails. Make a reservation!! Worth the wait. Food takes a while to come out, but fresh and delicious!!! Great view in the Mission on a nice day:)
The view and food were both amazing!! I will definitely be back.
Unreal food great views
We drove up from Santa Cruz and loved our experience. It was an 11:30 brunch reservation yesterday (Saturday) other than the rude street hostess & dirty downstairs bathrooms, no complaints. Our server was soooo friendly & the food was great!!!!!
The food huevos rancheros we’re over cooked, and completely bland. The service was slow. I’m disappointed and will not return.
It was a nice view with great drinks and tasty food. Look up the weather before reservations. Great experience overall
Great Location. Love the rooftop view. Excellent cocktails and delicious food. Make sure you get a reservation.
Lovely place. Food not quite Mexican, but overall good flavor, though it is a bit overpriced.
Amazing spot with great views (rooftop)! Food was delish! Service was great!
This is a must have every time we come to San Francisco!
Went for brunch to celebrate a friends birthday. It was very windy on Saturday and cold and there were 4-5 tables viable that were available. They sat us outside of the tent on the roof away from the heating lamps. I had to ask the host if we could move to one of the available tables under the tent and they said yes...so why weren’t we sat there in the first place?
Took a while to be helped from start to finish; being greeted by our waiter upon being seated, for drinks, to order our food, receiving the food, and getting the check.
Three of us ordered the eggs Benedict two of us received eggs that were hard boiled, not poached. I was interested in trying other items on the menu and presentation was nice as well as ambiance, but I don’t think I’d revisit or reccomend.
Oh also, the ladies restroom downstairs by the elevator was completely out of toilet paper in both stalls. When I told the front desk gentlemen he argued with me at first about how he was told there was paper, and I had to be persistent to say...I just came from the bathroom, and there was none...
We had a reservation for Brunch last Saturday.
We drove up to valet park which was very convenient.
We stood in line since the restaurant opens at 1100 am.
Everyone in line had a reservation. You have to have one
since this is a hot spot. We only waited 5 minutes and we
were greeted by the front door hostess. We went up the
elevator to the roof top where the restaurant is located.
Very fresh and vibrant vibe, beautiful views and happy
staff! The service, food, and tequila cocktails were
absolutely amazing! This is my favorite restaurant!!!!!
I'll be back soon!
Perfect for a casual yet special enough for occasions! Great buzz and for groups
El Techo surprised us with an incredible view of the city from a rooftop in the Mission. The menu was within our budget, the service was great, and the food (brunch) was delightful.
I have been here before and the carnitas was too salty, it has always been good before if I was able to beat the crowd.
Great views, decent drinks, not so great food and nice, but slow service. If you don't care about the views, there are much better options in SF.
If I could do brunch every weekend at El Techo, I would. The food is amazing. They play great music. And, my favorite server Jeremy is a superstar.
Fun place for brunch with out of town guests. Good food & drinks and awesome view o the city.
Great food, great view! Rooftop vibes ... Get the paloma!
This place has great ambiance and flavor! It is a great spot to just hang out with a date or as a spot for a group meeting. Views are excellent and menu is simple and delicious!
