The food was amazing. Fun atmosphere and great service. The noise level made it so that we had to shout and ask each other to repeat what we just said. That was unfortunate because everything else was a 10.

This was our first time bringing the kids, and it was surprisingly kid friendly! We went @530pm and had a phenomenal server. The family style menu was perfect, too.

Great service, followed by great drinks and ambiance! Empanada was out of this world! Ribeye was worth every penny and then some. Unfortunately I made the mistake of getting the dry lamb shank. Bad choice very dry and extremely gamey. Very disappointed!

Really good food here, all items I really enjoyed, very good flavors and dishes.
The jicama salad and broccoli Had a lottt of lemon on them and was very tart and acidic. This was too much for my taste but still good ingredients. Might have preferred that the lemon was on the side but the wind and dishes we had were really great so all around a good time.

One of my favorite places in San Francisco! A must go if you are in the Mission. Make a reservation and prepare to have your taste buds very satisfied!

I am never too much of a fan of super close communal table seating but it is nice and cute and the atmosphere is chill for a romantic dinner date. The flavors in the food were excellent, though one of the peppers in the Asado mixto caught me off guard and absolutely set my mouth ablaze. The pork belly appetizer was probably the highlight. I would come back and try some other things here.

Overall Very Good. Food, Great. But, DETAILS matter when you are spending $125 per head AND it could have cost more. Most of the problems have to due with STAFF. Upon entry to the restaurant, the hostess' were kind but semi-distracted. Despite arriving for an early dinner with reservations, we still had to wait although there were empty tables. Since that was the case, we should have been shown to the bar not told to stand around. We would have bought a drink. Second, our waiter, although kind, was rushed and hurried and in a very ROTE way explained the menu BUT when asked questions, could not answer. In a restaurant trying to be 4 or 5 star, the waitstaff needs to FULLY understand the types of LIQUOR and WINE that would best match our food. The waiter could not answer questions about the type of VODKA. When asked where a certain VODKA came from, (I never heard of it), he said "what do you mean?" Thought that was telling. Similar inquires were met with a lack of knowledge. This keeps this restaurant at a 3 star rating. BATHROOMS were FILTY and overflowing with trash. This really pushes down the rating to a 2.5 but will keep it at 3.

A long-time fave! Best Pisco Sours, full grilled steaks and Gaucho sides made for a delightful birthday Party!

Delicious flavors- we loved all our tapas. However, The meats (we got short rib and ribeye) were too smoky for our taste.

Palmito salad and Ceviche mixture were well seasoned, but so perfectly -- acidic, spicy, herby, fish saucy -- I actually commented several times that whoever was making it that night really was being ballsy because nothing was overly salty or aggressive, but it definitely packed their flavor punches. Meats, as expected, were charred and grilled well. Will definitely come back.

Good drinks and snack deals to be had at happy hour before dinner! Get there when it opens at 5:30. Afterwards moved on to a nice shared dinner of 7 items. About $55 per person with 3 diners and only one drink. Nice space and a bit noisy. Gets busy about 6:30. Free 2 hour parking off side streets a few blocks away for those that can handle walking. Paid parking garage within a block. Check out the rooftop bar which has separate entry.

Obsessed! Moved to SF 10 mos ago and been here 6 times, it’s my fav. Brussels are THE BEST and everything is perfectly seasoned with minimal sauce bc they understand how to accentuate the natural flavors in food! They do it right, the quality and price point, ambiance and service are all excellent. I love love love this place and will be back time and time again.

The service was lacklustre - our waitress was unaware of when we needed a refill, was not knowledgable when discussing the menu and gave the impression that she was filling in for someone and did not want to be there.

Visited the restaurant last year and it was fine. This visit was horrible. They squeezed 7 of us into a small table. Service was fine but the food was terrible. Couldn’t hardly cut the steak and way too chewy.
Noise level was high and had to talk loud to communicate with the folks at my table.
Extremely disappointed.

Loved the experience, although my partner and I were there for a special birthday dinner (and I noted this on my reservation). Neither the server or the host mentioned happy birthday to my partner. A little more attention to detail would have made this a 5 star experience!
