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
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.
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.
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!
Excelente a little bit of authentic mexican flavors, with a great view.
Very loud, sitting on the outside closer to views, was great!
Loved it, although was a bit too loud for our liking.
Great spot for brunch!
I'd come expecting a decent brunch experience even though it was raining. The covered terrace and heat lamps made the experience quite comfortable, but the jalapeno cornbread eggs benedict was lackluster, lacking any punch or flavor, really. My Bloody Mary, even though made with a custom mix, was uninteresting as well, save, perhaps, for the generous portion of pickled veggies. On a nicer day, I can imagine sipping mimosas and overlooking the drabness of the food and feeling happy with my brunch choice. On this particular day, I could have done better elsewhere.
I had reserved a table for 12 for my birthday celebration for a Saturday brunch! I know they don’t take reservations for dinner, so I was quite pleased when I found out! It was the perfect brunch!! We were seated right next to the view on a long table that fit us all! It’s a small restaurant up on the rooftop, so it was a little snug! But nothing that would bother us. The food and drinks were all amazing and trendy! They also sang happy birthday to me with a candle in the buñuelos! Our server was also super nice and patient putting up with my crazy friends and family! We also left my gifts up there and came back 30 mins later to the hostess holding them for us. Great customer service!
Definitely make a reservation in advance! Cool place to hang out, munch on yummy food and sip cool drinks! Portions are not huge, and are bit overpriced, but the ambiance, views and service are totally worth it.
Great view, food, cocktails, and service.
The view was amazing!!
We had the best seat in the house. Such a great place to impress first time visitors! The food was amazing, the drinks were amazing, food came out fast. There are heating lamps also. My new favorite place!
Great food and great ambiance!! I can't wait to try the steakhouse below 😝😁🙋🏻💜🍖🍗🥘
Loved this place. Delicious food, beautiful view of the city and the friendliest staff.
Great brunch with amazing rooftop view.
HORRIBLE service all the way around.
Great neighborhood spot for brunch and city view for evening.
I have always loved this location, unfortunately i couldnt make it to the reservation and gave it to my cousin and her husband since it was their first time going here. They loved it. Such a great place with amazig food and a view.
Was ok ... simply ok, think it would
Be good for a date!
Great ambience. Fun place. Note that, even if you have reservations---you will have to wait in line to let host know you have reservations. Arrive early!
I really enjoyed this place. Food was delicious. Service was good. My only complaint is I wish the temperature of my food was a little warmer.
