The morning seemed very busy so we had to wait for our food choices but were definitely cheered on by the bottomless mimosas. Service was absolutely excellent and all the wait staff was knowledgable and kind. I had the Cubano Sandwich and fries which were quite tasty and generous. My husband had Eggs Benedict with Salmon and it was absolutely... More

One of my favorite restaurants in the world. Pan-latin-american cuisine from the southern cone of Latin America with particular focus on Peruvian specialities. The ceviche is to die for. The desserts, in particular, the dolce de tres leches is delicious! An absolute must restaurant!

This place was recommended to me by a friend. I was looking for a spot for brunch before heading over to Golden Gate Park Music Concourse for some free early afternoon music. This place fit the bill. I made the reservation for 10:00am so we'd have a nice leisurely brunch before heading to GGP with enough time to find a... More

Very good California modified Peruvian food & drink. Good ambiance and staff. It is a good place to go for dinner after a visit to the De Young museum or the California Academy of Sciences as it is quite close to both.

We were excited about trying Peruvian food and went to Pasion last Sunday at noon. Our crab cake benedict and coconut pancakes were really good, but the noise level in the restaurant was unbelievably loud (the pitchers of mimosas being served? the low ceiling and flat surfaces?) and gave us both bad headaches. We'd love to try more of their... More

I've passed bye this place prob. almost 30 times, I've never yet to go in! Being that I have lived in the neighborhood for about 1 year in total, I finally decided to cave in and go!

Try this one is you are looking for inventive but not overdone. Not overly sauced but packed with flavor. More tasty than I remember food in Peru. Try out the specials on the board. Chicken hash is bound to please.
