“Unconventional upscale mexican food from Guadalajara, Jalisco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

I visited the Sacromonte for dinner. The atmosphere is relaxed and very comfortable. Lights and decoration with a touch of mexican style but in the appropriate level. It makes you feel at one of the nice Haciendas in Mexico. As an entree we tasted the fresh cheese (delicious!). Then my husband and I had fish and salmon. The chef considered all small details to present your plate. Dessert was a delicious ice cream wrapped in a very interesting way. Wine from california complemented the dinner. And the best of all, it's only 45 minutes from Reedwood Shores, CA! Prices are affordable (owner mentioned they served lunch also). If you have visited SFO very frequently and want to taste something mexican but different than nachos, quesadillas and burritos, you have to go to the Sacromonte!

“Not to be missed!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Definitely not your average Mexican dinner. Would probably categorized their meals as gourmet Mexican. Food was amazingly good! Waiter's service was great with added knowledge of wine pairing for the meals my wife and I had chosen. Several days later, wife and I are still saying WOW. Yes, prices are higher than your average Mexican meal, but this is very far from average!!!

“Check it out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

This place is a hidden gem - although the service was a tad bit slow it was so worth the wait!
The food was divine!
