The food was amazing. Questioning the extra charge on my credit card this morning that I will dispute with my bank and get clarification from the restaurant when they open. We reviewed the receipt, everything was correct, added the tip, and this morning there is an additional charge. When you leave a restaurant you trust your credit card is safe.

What a lovely Covid surprise. The quality of our entire meal was exceptional-we had the rib-eye that was cooked to perfection, an amazing corn salad and broccolini. I’ll definitely be coming back!

First timer at Lolinda. Our server were pretty attentive and helpful. Sorry I forgot her name. The food was excellent and reasonable priced. Will come back whenever I am in the city and craving for some good meat.

As always, the food was excellent. We started with the croquetas and chicken empandaas which are favorites. My friend had the muscles. He enjoyed them immensely. We had the cauliflower and broccolini to accompany our medium rare boneless ribeye, which was perfectly cooked.

The service was great.

The only issue was the level of lighting. It was a bit dim and it was difficult to see the paper wine list.

Overall, our meal was excellent.

One of my top 3 restaurants in SF. Outstanding food, (the pork chop continues to be the best I have ever had), Friendly , professional service, very good value - particularly by SF standards, and an energetic vibe. As it is a family style restaurant, I highly recommend going with 4 or more people and ordering and sharing as many items as you can. I have never had something I didn't like there.

Grabbed the last slot at 5:30 which was their opening time for dinner. Dark and quiet spot upstairs and got 5 dishes to share (for a group of three). Great service, food was mindblowingly good!

This meal was so delicious and flavorful. We tried so many things and loved it all. Particularly enjoyed the chicken skewers & empanadas but everything was really so fresh & tasty. The cocktails were yummy and the ambiance was great. Highly recommend for any special occasion or date. We will be back!

Upon entering hostess was very welcoming , vaccine cards checked.
Our table was ready, even though we were early for our reservation. All the food was very very well made, from the ceviche to start to the churros in chocolate sauce to end. Service staff was attentive and kind. Highly recommend !

What a treat!! Cebiche was fire!! So delicious.. Best I’ve had so far.. Recommend the Rabada, Malbec braised oxtail; melts in your mouth with polenta and veggies. Dark relaxing atmosphere, maybe a little too relaxing. Service was A+!! Definitely a returning customer!!

I ordered the Chuleta (perfectly medium rare grilled marinated pork chop) which came with a small ramekin of chimichurri/aioli dipping sauce. The pork was great on it's own. I dip the pieces of the pork into the chimichurri and that was awesome too. The chimichurri, I even spread it on the couple of grilled bread which came with the entre'e. I order a side of the Hongos ( saute'ed mushrooms in wine herb butter) which was out of sight.

The service was incredibly poor and frankly ruined our experience. It took us half an hour to get our drinks and the meal was very underwhelming due to the poor service. I do not think I would recommend this place.

It was six of us for my wife’s 50th, were sat 6 to a booth that fits 4 adults and maybe 6 children comfortably. My friend had the table on her stomach. The morcilla was a bit dry and presented like a rubber toy accompanied with potatoes. My hanger steak was chewy. My brother and I went to the bar where a pretentious bartender was selling me $54 shots of tequila when I only asked for Patron.

My friends left and took their meals with them as it was being served as a result of the tight and uncomfortable seating.

Great atmosphere but disappointed with the experience.
