What Insiders Are Saying
A rooftop bar in the Mission, El Techo de Lolinda is where you should be when the sun's out.
Amazing place! Dope Drinks, great food, music playing. Killer views.
-Shrimp Ceviche & Guac were nice & fresh
-Cocktails (Agua Fresca mimosa & Belafonte) were mixed really well
-Benedictos were bursting with complex flavors
-Then the Buñuelos stole the show...
Food was just ok. Busboy cleared our table prematurely taking our chips and salsa while we were still eating without asking....a little disappointing really!
Brunch was good, but noise level was really high. Seemed like everyone nearby was drunk at 1 pm. Probably will pass on brunch and save that sort of atmosphere for a boozy dinner.
Food was fantastic. My portion was a little smaller than I’d want. Service was a little slow.
Overall the restaurant has a good vibe but is extremely loud. We waited for a while to have a server offer us drinks...seems like they need more servers on the weekends. Food was delicious but very small portions for the price.
Breakfast food was nothing special. Never been there for dinner. Drinks are pretty good. But you’re really just paying for the view and ambiance
Mom was visiting
I love this place. It was my second visit and it was even better than the first. Our server was great, lots of fun. The food is excellent. The restroom was spotless. Can't wait to go back.
El Techo is always a great spot to catch up with friends over delicious food and a few drinks!
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!
The view is terrific if you're seated along the edge, which is bar seating with a very narrow bar rail. Otherwise, the tables are jammed to close together and it's such a hot-spot with the 20 somethings that it's often loud and rambunctious and you're likely to be sat in a location where you can't see the view. The food was average for San Francisco and the waitstaff are the same age and temperament as the clientele.
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!
