We visited on a Friday night. When we arrived we didn't think we would get in as the entry was packed. We quickly learned the small bar area is situated at the front door and we had to shoulder our way through a loud mob to be seated in a nearly empty restaurant. The server was rapid and nice enough.... More

This just feels like a hip place to eat. The food is more authentic and we can't leave without ordering the guacamole. I've taken colleagues here and they've always enjoyed the experience.

Whenever I visit San Francisco, Mexico DF is a must. If you stay or visit the financial district, you won't go wrong enjoying dinner and a few beers here. If you are a tequila lover, ask Fernando or Barbara for a favorite pick. I'm never disappointed and have become very fond of the flan too!

I ate here tonight (Monday) as I am on a business trip and staying at the Harbor Court hotel just a couple of doors away. The service was pretty good and friendly and the place is nicely decorated in a modern, stylish way (although not especially comfortable or welcoming). The food was pretty lousy though, especially for the price. I... More

I was very excited to eat at a "gourmet" mexican restaurant and am still looking forward to eating at a "real" gourmet mexican restaurant; this was not one. I ordered the duck floutas recommended by the waitress. The "taquitos" were hard as well as hard to eat. Why waste duck when the taquito is just fried. The meat might have... More

Lets see...Yuck seems to pretty much define this resturaunt. It is a really unappitizing place to go...everything smelled like sweatsocks and a locker that we ordered. We left hungry and pretty dissapointed

Trying to be an "upscale" mexican restaurant. It both achieves and fails at this.

Five of us ate here, cocktails and dinner. The margaritas are VERY GOOD. They have a great selection of tequila. I also really like their guacamole. I ordered the Chili Relleno. Very good-different than what we make at home. Overall, I would recommend and eat here again. Oh - and the service was excellent!

I really like this place and come here somewhat frequently. The food is excellent - I've never had anything I haven't liked. You really cannot go wrong with bacon shrimp guacamole. A little pricey though.
