The ribeye steaks were very low quality meat. Had no marbling, tasted like processed steaks from grocery store, no seasoning, burned cap.

We enjoyed our experience at Lolinda. the food and options were good, and we liked the variety. The servcie started off very well with 2 glass of sparkling wine to celebrate our anniverssary- compliments of the waitress. They make very good Pisco Sours so I highly reccomend ordering at least one. The only downside to our experience was the servcie when it came to not feeling rushed. Several times, the waitress would come by and ask if we were ready to order the entree. We felt rushed and I had to ask that she stop and I would let her know when we were ready. And when we received our main courses, which arrived very quickly after we ordered, our wine that we ordered w/ the dinner took much too long, well into our meal. They need to work on their timimg and reading their patrons a bit better. Overall the food, ambiance, and dining expereince was enjoyable.

We went during SF Restaurant week and it was delicious! First time here and we enjoyed the Chuleta and Bife de Chorizo so much. The dessert of cookies and vanilla shake was also yummy, we ended up spiking one of the shakes with bourbon. Can't wait to go again and try their regular menu.

Me and my girlfriends went there for Restaurant Week SF at dinner time and the food was AMAZING. The grilled pork and alfajores with vanilla milkshake left the table quiet for an uncomfortable amount of time, and am so excited to go back soon!

We thought the food and service was great! However, we noticed how they were clearing tables and cleaning them, or not cleaning them and the way they were being reset and we felt uncomfortable. They used the same rag to wipe a few tables, and didn’t use any kind of cleaning spray, just a reused rag. Then we noticed how the tables were being reset, and how glasses were stacked and distributed. The person touched every glass lip to separate the stacked glasses, straws were not offered, but available upon request. They had a sheet on how to dine in their restaurant during this time in a pandemic, wearing masks to talk to servers, and when not eating and getting up from your table, etc...but in the actual areas of how they could provide a clean and safe space, they were definitely lacking. Honestly, if we had seen how the tables were cleaned and set up prior to eating we had said that we probably would’ve left and gone elsewhere.

Lolinda is one of my favorite restaurants in the city! Try the Ensalada de Palmito and Hueso (appetizers) Asado Mixto (entree) Zuzugarai, Txacolina (wine). You will not be disappointed!

It was too dark for my taste. Make it a bit lighter so people can see where they are going on those stairs.
