Latin Grill does a great job with classics such as Lechon con yuca and arroz con pollo. Plantains were great. Also had some empanadas which were amazing! Would highly recommend.

Well, I hate to leave 1 star reviews, but I need to share this experience with others. I spent quite some time researching restaurants, and with high hopes of Latin Grill, I reserved a spot about 2 weeks in advance for an 8:30pm reservation on a busy Friday night. Because it was such an important night for me, I even... More

Came on a playoff night and was the only place that could seat 9 people w/o a long wait. We were the first ones there which was initially worrisome. Service was excellent and food fantastic. The tapas get a bit expensive after the good times get rolling but consistent with other places in SF. Would visit again, but w/o the... More

We were so excited to see Cuban/Latin food with such high ratings that we chose to use one of only three dinners in SF at this place. It was a poor choice. Service was friendly and prompt. We started with an arepa that was absolutely fabulous...perfectly prepared and served with a tasty verde sauce. Everything went downhill from there. I... More

Came down to the City for Giants FanFest and my fiancé (who loves Cuban food) found this place. Popped over around 7:45pm and discovered a hidden gem. The menu is small, but that just means what you do get is awesome! Had the Carnitas with Yucca Smash, Black beans and rice, fried sweet plaintaines, and a fried corn cake (whose... More

I love Cuban cuisine and was disappointed when I moved to SF and couldn't find any decent Cuban food. We found this place on trip advisor after waiting a long time a McCormicks. I AM SO GLAD. The service was outstanding along with the food. We had the pork and it was perfect. Plantains were Devine. Rice and beans good... More

We found the Latin Grill Express when staying at Fort Mason 2 years ago. The food was fantastic then and it remains fantastic now. On our stay in San Francisco this October our evening was so good we returned couple of days later. Diego is a great chef and good host. Him and Lisa his partner are a tag team... More

We took the owner's suggestions and enjoyed every bite. Sangria and coffee were delicious too! They do catering as well for local businesses.

Loved the food. We ordered take out. It took them a long time to serve the order, however, it was worth the wait.

The food was excellent Cuban and Sothern American fare. The pork we had was flavorful and imaginative. I think the food was a good value for the $15-20 price range and the staff was super helpful. Highly recommended.

Thank Nick V
