Neighborhood architecture is super interesting. Staff at Tres was super accommodating of our group at a late hour. Mahi tacos, guac, trio of salsas, margaritas - all good, satisfying choices.

We were there on oct 10th. It was a large group and I was seated at my table in a large back room. The menu looked interesting but the conversation was loud. Pretty soon I realized a server was not coming and food was being served buffet style. The beauty if this was that I was able to try the... More

Excellent margaritas - large choice of tequilas. Hand the guacamole for starter and carnitas for main meal. Both were excellent.

This place gets a lot of custom during baseball games. Food is average Mexican dishes and the service is pretty good. We have been there a few times as we lived in the local area. It is a solid performer and the bar during game time is fun, load and lots of drunk people taking tequila in various cocktails.

We met family here before a Giants game and so were expecting good mixed drinks but not much else. We were very pleasantly surprised. Around of Margaritas, including a non-alcoholic one, started things off along with guacamole and chips with 3 tasty and fresh salsas. 3 of us ordered tacos (beef, pork, fish) and the 4th one ordered the pollo...

If you are looking for some good mexican food or drinks in SOMO this is the place. Some of the things I had and loved were the MARGS, guacamole and ceviche. I went here during lent and the cactus tacos were excellent! Overall great place for friends to hang out in an exciting atmosphere!

Great place to visit for appetizers and drinks. Don't mistake it for a great dinner joint, but makes for a nice light lunch spot. Love the ceviche and like how they add in watermelon to increase the volume but leave it not as filling.

Being California natives, we're very picky about our Mexican food, but let's just say this passed our test. The food is incredible, and we eat here any time we're in the city. For dessert, try the churros. They may sound gross, but i can honestly say they're the best churros I've ever had.

On March 5, 2014 I was in San Francisco to take care of some personal business. While in San Francisco I got together with 7 friends for dinner. Although the original plan had been to go to Kam's on Balboa I found out at the last minute that they had closed. This was quite unfortunate because I was so looking... More

Tres is an ok spot for gourmet Mexican or Latin cuisine. They have a well-rounded menu that has gives all the members in your party to find something they like. I went with the Carnitas Tacos. The plate is beautifully presented with a set of 3 tacos with all the fixings already adorning the tacos. I would have liked for... More
