Five of us ate here on our first full day in San Francisco. Booked ahead online for brunch & all went smoothly on arrival. Food & Service were good, place was rammed when we left.

Really fun place w awesome food, family style, fresh and fast. Not a long wait for seating (even w 8 people) and fast, friendly service. Margaritas and guacamole are a must! They even served me a birthday dessert on the house!

Nice brunch spot to go to with friends. A little over-priced, but hey that's brunch in SF. The view is fantastic and I recommend this spot just because having brunch on a roof top in SF with a great view is a a unique experience....More

Come for the view, stay for the food and good drinks. Really liked this place, AND, they were only serving brunch, which is not my favorite. We got there early enough to not wait much for a table, but it is probably worth waiting anyway....More
