It was our last night in SF visiting my two daughters and we wanted margaritas to end the long weekend. We started off with guacamole, queso and tortilla chips along with the margaritas. The guacamole was amazing and the portion was huge. The salsa that came with the guacamole was great. We followed it with the carne asada and camaron... More

Very good upscale mexican food. The service was okay but the guacamole and the rancheras enchiladas were yummy. The margaritas were great also. This restaurant is a little pricey but it has a fun,hip, upscale environment. My group had a blast and everyone enjoyed their food except for one person who felt the serving size was too small. However, I... More

Our last night in SF so we checked out Mamacita based on other reviews. Lively and busy with couples, large family tables and groups of friends. Excellent service. As we had never tried this type of food before we went with waitress recommendation to share dishes. Food was delicious and enjoyed by all. The Mamacita margarita is worth a try... More

A friend and I went here on a Monday night, and booked a table online during the afternoon with no hassles at all. We started off with guacamole and tortilla chips to start. The guacamole was amazing and the portion was huge. It also came with some salsa, this was pretty plain and could have done with a bit more... More

Brilliant Mexican! Amazing guacamole started off the meal very well, and the enchiladas, tostadas and tacos were superb! The meats were all very tender and spiced perfectly, and the portions were generous without being over the top. I would go back here in a heartbeat.

We had the chicken tacos and jimica salad. Portions are good size. We ordered to share. Our server was knowledgable and personable. I am not a rum drinker, but La Carmencita is a definite try. So delicious. The restaurant is located on Chestnut street which is a lively street lined with small boutiques and restaurants. We will definitely return to... More

This was the perfect Mexican feel. The food was great and decently priced. The seating was a little close- but we were able to chat with the girls next to us, which made the night more fun!

We were recommended to go here by local and we were not disappointed. We ended up getting the Carnitas. I have the special Carnitas with the the cheese sauce. It was delicious. Get there early as this place gets packed later

The food was delicious! We had the guacamole, carnitas tacos, and the mole chicken enchiladas. I recommend all of them. The chips and salsa were complimentary and also great. The service and atmosphere was great. They also make a great margarita.

I made a reservation on open table. We had an early flight Saturday morning out of San Francisco. So glad we had the opportunity to try this place. Tacos were amazing! My friend had the shrimp ceviche, so good! Margaritas were also great and it was Happy Hour! Certain drinks were half off and meals were 25% off. I would... More
