Every dish we tried was amazing. The empanadas had a perfect pie-like crust and the filling was perfectly seasoned. We tried the coconut rice, elote, asada, and chorizo and everything was delicious. My husband generally doesn't care for coconut but loved the coconut rice, which was buttery and had a few pickled veggies on top. The vegetables that were served with the chorizo had a nice acidity that balanced the sausage. For dessert we had the churros with horchata soft serve on the side which just put the meal over the top. A little pricey for the portions, but well worth it. The server was attentive, though it was hard to hear him as it does get noisy. Very smartly decorated space too. Overall--highly recommend!

Lived in Peru and found the Peruvian ceviche as authentic as you can do with US ingredients and the Pisco Sour was excellent. The fried empanadas were excellent, we ordered seconds. Highly recommend this restaurant.

the atmosphere was nice and I would probably come back for a drink but that's about it. We arrived early for a reservation, no one was at the host stand. Many people working there walked past us and didn't ask if we needed help. Then, when someone finally came, we were told we had to wait until our actual reservation time to be seated, although there were numerous empty tables indoors and outdoors. I was ok with waiting, although kind of confused on why we had to? A group came in right when we finally got seated and they were seated right away. THEN, We ordered drinks and food. Drinks were 10/10. The food....SO SALTY. It was insane. Every entree we ordered was LOADED with salt. I could barely have a bite without having to chug water after. The only dish that was great were the empanadas.

The food was great. It was very loud inside but we moved outside and it was much better. The service was less then ideal. They forgot multiple drink orders.

We had the picnic basket. Not everything was awesome, but everything was very good. empanadas were the highlight. Third time there and it is worthy of repeat visits.

Food is awesome, too, and not your same ol' Sunday brunch.

Do NOT say no to the frozen drink of the day! :-)

Absolutely love Señor Bear. Every time it's fantastic. This recent time, our waitress was a very low talker and unfortunately a lot of the time, we weren't sure what she was saying. We felt really bad constantly saying "excuse me" "I'm sorry can you say that again" throughout the night. I've never had this experience before there, so maybe she is new! The restaurant plays music loud, which we didn't mind, but I think the staff should be aware of this and speak a little louder... we won't mind!!

The server was rude, and I think it’s ridiculous that they won’t serve the queso if you’re sitting at a table (only at the bar)-the server was not accommodating.

Señor bear is absolutely delectable! We started out with the ceviche, which was the best I’ve ever had. The empeñada was light and tasty. Most of our party tried the Caesar salad which was really unique. The meal was capped off with some churros and ice cream. Churros were out of this world!

This was my first time at Senor Bear, as was the case for the rest of my group. We were very impressed. We have eaten at all the top restaurants around town and this easily sits among the best. We had the basket and the food that came out was incredible and the cocktails fit great. We will absolutely be back there again. Hoping to try brunch next time.

Really enjoyed our time! We went for happy hour and didn't realize the dinner tables didn't have access to the HH menu. I thought it was odd they end the HH service at the dinner tables at 5pm and only offer that at the bar until 6pm. We decided we just wanted small bites and cocktails so we moved to the bar and everyone was very accommodating, food and drinks were great, and loved the atmosphere. We then wanted to finish our cocktails outside after we closed out our tab and they were even MORE accommodating (we felt a little silly because we had already moved, but didn't see any harm just moving outside to the standing bar out there and they didn't mind.) my only suggestion is to open up happy hour across the restaurant during the week nights because I can't imagine the entire restaurant gets full of dinner reservations on a tuesday. I would definitely go back!
