Well, we decided to give it the benefit of a doubt but I wish we'd went with the earlier reviews. Stale chips. Boring chicken salad. Average margarita. We've eaten a lot of Mexican cuisine and this was below average.

The location is great, as it is right off of Fisherman's Wharf and not the cost of most restaurants on the Wharf. The food was good and the service was great. Nice patio with a courtyard view. Off the main street hustle and bustle.

Stopped here with my adult sister expecting an authentic mexican experience. While the service and ambiance were spot on, the food was on the bland side for me. Both our dishes came out as ordered and we did enjoy our respite from shopping and walking but will probably try another mexican restaurant if in the area again.

As other reviewers have noted, we waited for a very long time for our orders to be taken, and then for our food to be brought to us. Even more disappointing was the quality of the food when we did get it. I am not an extremely picky person in a restaurant, but I felt like the poor quality of... More

Staying at the Argonaut Hotel and across the Courtyard, upstairs discovered this wonderful Mexican Restaurant. Not busy, but the service was good. The food was authentic. The restaurant is in a brick Cannery Building. The walls are brick, the decorative chandlers and decorations were very nice. I liked it very much. The chips were fresh and thin and salty and...

We visited here with our family including grandma, adult kids and grandkids. We were seated right away and the place was not busy at all. Took a long time to order and way too long to get our food. The food was ok and reasonably priced, but I probably wouldn't go again.

We strolled around Fisherman's Wharf and found delicious mexican good. The chips are crispy and the salsa is just hot enough. They made a fish & rice dish into a hot fish salad which was luscious. Well cooked fish, shrimp and octopus in a spicy broth. Attentive service, pleasant atmosphere & a great last night dinner in San Francisco.

We stumbled across Las Margaritas one evening whilst trying to find somewhere to eat. The food was authentic Mexican and the service was prompt and friendly. Would recommend to anyone who loves this type of food.

Popped in on impulse and thought we had made a mistake as the service was slow and poor. The food came out and it was excellent. All four of us ate something different and were all pleased with our meals. Shame they can't lift the presentation and service.

We are SF locals and wanted a light lunch on our way to see The Giants. We should have paid attention to all of the warnings signs. But, we decided to go for it anyway. Service- Was very slow. We were never greeted and sat ourselves after waiting 10 minutes. We waited another 10 minutes for dirty falling apart menus.... More
