Flores - Union Street
Delicious meal at affordable prices in a fun and beautiful setting
Lovely atmosphere, underwhelmed by the food, delighted by two staff members and mystified by a hostile third,
Great place, but unfortunately we only had a couple of cocktails and an app (guacamole) and left. This place is LOUD, so be prepared. After struggling to carry on a conversation, we gave up and asked for our bill. Not only are the patrons loud, but they seemed to have one song playing on and on - sort of like a drum beat sound which made things even louder. The space is beautiful, the staff very friendly and attentive and the app and drinks we had were excellent.
The food is not authentic, it’s eclectic, which is fine, but in this case, it was not tasty. It’s more of a trendy place to be versus a good date night or any night where you want to hear the people with you. It’s right space and dark, which can be fine if it is clean, this was not. I sat on a tomato and there was food stuck to my menu. The bartender also made poor drinks.
Fun vibe. Good food. Good service. The restaurant, when full, is uncomfortably loud. If you are looking to have a real 1:1 conversation with your dining partner, you will find yourselves speaking louder than normal in order to be heard.
Too noisy; food was mediocre at best
Wonderful and magnificent. I always enjoy dining here at Flores!
Nice brunch spot!
The woman host was very bad, not friendly and with an attitude. Just that alone , will not be returning. On the other hand all the waitresses were very nice. Seats are uncomfortable and the food was ok.
Dinner with my hubby and we pigged out it was all amazing
You can find much better mexican food in San Francisco, the venue and atmosphere is good though.
Great experience and service
I have been to Flores for dinner and enjoyed it but not as much as I enjoyed their brunch yesterday. The food was SO good. Everyone at the table agreed it was one of the heat brunches we’ve had in awhile. They also have a killer spicy Margarita!
Excellent food and service - closed by 10.00 already which was a bit early for us.
The margaritas had little or no tequila. I’ve never had that happen before. It was clearly all mix
Amazing food quality. Fun atmosphere.
Consistent and always great !
Really interesting, well prepared Mexican food. Great service, creative cocktails. Just go.
Food was okay not great. Too many other places with great food! Won’t go back. :0(
We were seated for 15 minutes and lots of staff walked by and saw us but no one acknowledged us or said anything to us so we left.
My feedback would be that dinner was great but upon checking in, the hostess tried to indicate we would need to return the table by 9pm. This wasn't mentioned when making the reservation + quite irritating. We were with old friends and didn't want to be rushed out of the restaurant. Would think twice before placing another reservation
I have to say that everything we ate was superb! Everything tasted authentic and made from scratch. I will definitely be coming back and will tell others to come as well.
Our server was amazing, to the level where it was markedly better than good service. Cocktails and food were solid.
It was so damn dark I couldn't really see what I was eating. Holy hell. It was tasty though. But for a sec, i couldn't enjoy it bc it was that dark.
Fun but very noisy - good food and service , nice location
Great food and service
We love Flores!! Every time we visit we try something new and it is always excellent!!
Service is always outstanding and super friendly!! :)
Great place and excellent food. Would recommend for a high energy social gathering, would not recommend for conversational dinner.
Such a great ambiance with Spanish music! Margaritas were delicious
We had an early reservation to have a quiet meal before it got crowded. They sat us at a nice 2-top, far from the only other group there. Then after we order they sit an obnoxious family of 10 directly next to us in an empty restaurant. They had loud, sneezing coughing babies. RIGHT NEXT TO US, IN AN EMPTY RESTAURANT.
Extremely dirty And chipped dishes. Music so loud no one can talk.
A menu filled with very special options like the crab tostadas and the trout
The food and service is always excellent at Flores, which is why we come so often. Can’t say enough good things about the staff; Matt was a stellar sever, and Yadi was amazing as always. They make it feel like home. Thanks again!
Poor service, rude waitress (Sophia) and unconcerned restaurant manager undermine the delicious Mexican food they serve.
Attentive service, plenty of room, received the 8 seats I requested on time, amazing food. Thank you!
Noise is very loud. Great food.
I keep coming to Flores and hoping it will be better. To be fair, I was there on a Sunday along with about 50 hung over Millenials drinking margaritas and sort of hollering, and a few other families and quiet diners trying to have a nice meal. The service was ok, and certainly nice, but it’s a thankless job to serve this kind of crowd. The real problem was the food. I LOVE Oaxacan cuisine, and I ordered the chicken mole (served with a “mini quesadilla” and sunnyside up egg) because I have such fondness for the dish. The mole was bitter and acrid, the chicken was flavorless and overwhelmed by the sauce, and the quesadilla was greasy and unbearably chewy. The Margarita was just ok - too sweet for my taste and not a good deal at $12 for a glass filled with ice. My friend had a scramble with the house-made chorizo; the chorizo was tasty, and the side of potatoes were crispy and tender in the center. It was a perfectly ok dish, but nothing remarkable. There was no spice heat in either of our dishes, and we didn’t receive any chips and salsa (I’m ok with that, but it is odd that it seems the only way to get it is to order a $12 side of guacamole). I think I’m done giving this place a chance - I think it’s best for hung over young things looking to sop up their leftover alcohol with greasy food and top up on tequila. Oh, and it’s just a loud space, with the music turned up a bit too high, a few too many liquored-up patrons, and a slightly too crowded dining room.
Good food, awesome kitchen staff.
Very good overall. We had an early dinner for a friend get-together party of 8 people. Knowing that the place gets pretty busy on Saturday, we booked a table ahead of time. We were seated at a high communal table that we need to share with another party and was told we only had about an hour+ at the table before they have another party coming to take most of the space at the table. Table situation is a bit uncomfortable, but the food, the service and the ambience is excellent. I would give it 5 stars but having to sit awkwardly and feeling rushed .. I have to deduct 1 star from that.
Overall nice experience, but it's too expensive for what it is. Unfortunately this is not unusual.
