Best rooftop in SF! Amazing food and great service.
Always a great spot for brunch even if it is windy they roof manages to be nice with the covers and the heaters

Solid all around. Great view while you dine. Food was pretty good and drinks were nothing special but not bad. Our server was on it and did a great job. I'd go back
Good vibes, perfect on a sunny day! Food was average though
Gracie was awesome host! Thanks for a great meal!
Gorgeous day, lively atmosphere, good food. A little hard to hear-
Great food, drinks and location with a view. Highly recommend!
Great location with views of the city. Food and cocktails yummy. Enjoyed their themed winter warm cocktails.
Great food and tasty drinks! Fast service considering how full it gets. You’ll get a beautiful view of San Francisco almost anywhere you sit.
What a great find. Rooftop bar with outstanding food. The carnitas were superb, the guacamole fresh and chopped just perfectly, and we really enjoyed the sangria and beer. The view cannot be beat, and they have plexiglas buffers and covers to deal with the weather, plus heaters if it is chilly. Best rooftop experience ever, highly recommend it, but get a reservation.
This place is amazing. The food is delicious, especially the carnitas! Palomas tasty too. Would come weekly if I could
The drinks were amazing, but the food only so-so. The papas sounded great but then came as whole gold potatoes, only softly fried with barely any chimichurri to speak of. Conversely, the bunuelos were so dark I thought they might be chocolate-flavored--nope, just over-fried. The chorizo was good, but skip the brisket on the huevos rancheros--it was tough. Our table was also TINY and squished right between 2 other tables. I understand maximizing space, but I felt this close to elbowing people to either side of me the whole meal. I have no idea why any website would call this place one of the 100 best brunches in the country, and I definitely won't be making the trek back.
It has a great view, but I think there are better brunch places for folks. The food came out very quick, which is usually great, but it seemed carelessly put together. My friend's eggs still had a lot of raw egg white, and the beans in my huevos rancheros were more of a bean soup. The server was nice, but it felt like she was rushing us the entire time, even taking multiple drinks away before they were finished. Overall, what should have been a leisurely brunch between a group of friends felt more like a high school cafeteria.
It was pouring rain and freezing, but obviously completely out of the restaurants control. The server was amazing, drinks were awesome, but the food was sub-par.
Amazing service, great atmosphere and such good food
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.
I like the concept but the food was okay, very small portions and overpriced! .....It was also too loud to have a conversation.
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.
I’ve been here a few times: happy hour with coworkers, girls brunch, girls night out...every time it’s been absolutely fabulous. The ambiance & food cant be beat. It’s definitely a more expensive restaurant so unless your here for happy hour, this is an “occasion” place. If you have people visiting, take them here! Especially for brunch, the view from the rooftop is unbeatable if it’s a gloriously sunny day in the mission!!! Drinks, food, appetizers - anything you get will be a true treat.
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.
