Pisco Latin Lounge next door to the popular nuevo Peruvian restaurant Destino. Went here for Happy Hour with my friends a few weeks ago. The long, narrow space had a mix vibe of Latin lounge and neighborhood bar. Towards the back, there's a tiny platform area called the "pagoda" that provides a more intimate gathering. (You can reserve that area... More

Unique flavors, attentive service, reasonably priced, nice ambience - liked everything about Destino, with the possible exception of the desserts. I'd definitely go back here.

I had my wedding dinner hear last year. The service, food, ambiance...everything was perfection! The owner James was amazing to work with. He provided printed menus with the food selection of our choice and our names and wedding date. We had about 40 people attend and nobody was disappointed. The food is served like tapas, so it is all smaller... More

Destino is a fun place to meet friends for drinks and tapas. Cocktails were tasty, the food was very good and service was excellent. Not has upscale or delicious as other Peruvian places in SF, like La Mar but a nice casual, comfortable neighborhood place to hang out with friends.

Came here with a friend for dinner. Service was very friendly and ambience was very nice. Space was actually larger than I thought based on the pictures online. Ordered the ceviche a la peruana, arepa con ropa vieja, vieiras (scallops), lomo saltado, gnocchi de yucca, empanada vegetariana. I would say the highlights were the scallops, empanada, arepa. my friend really... More

We had never had Peruvian food before. We went there with our son while visiting him in SF. It was very good! Latin food different from other styles we have had, and a large variety of small plates. Yum. I would go again next time we're in SF.

An experience – some of the food was very good – some was all right – all of it was an adventure. Located in Hayes Valley, a hip up & coming neighborhood according to my friends. The décor is nice (dark red walls with large ornate mirrors hanging at an angle on the wall. It got very loud by the... More

Lovely experience, food wine and service just wonderful. Try the trio of ceviches - beautifully simple food. Lots of advice from our server and finally an amazing bottle of wine. Would love to go in a big group as saw lots of food being served that I would love to try.

This place is still incredible. My wife and I have been eating here for years, and its always great. Small dishes inspired by Latin cuisine, reasonable prices, and not too crowded. If you are visiting SF, come here. It will show you what the city is capable of, without the tourist crowd.

Nice and cosy restaurant in a not very popular part of Market St. The service is good and the food even better. We had delicious seafood as a starter and puffed quinoa as a main dish. It was definitely a nice and tasty experience.

Staying in Mission District

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
