    For once, a Conquistador is a very good thing. Cocktails do take their time coming from the bar to the restaurant, though, so place your next drink order before you've finished your last libation.

    Love the grilled octopus & cocktails. ("Flaca" with st. George Botanivore gin, lemongrass tonic, + poma aurea hard cider AND the "Sutter Smash" with four roses bourbon, cynar, apricot, mint, + lemon)

    While the view is great, the focus remains on the bar and open kitchen. The menu covers tapas, open-face sandwiches and family-style shared plates. Most dishes are strong, the paella is a must try. Read more

    Mojito with grey salt “Air” and Sun Never Sets are incredible drinks! Try all of the skewer bites and the croquettes and smoked salmon toast; skip the dessert and go to Humphrey Slocombe instead

    I love a good grilled Octopus and Coqueta has one of the best in the city. Also try their Pluma (grilled pork) - it is so tender and sweet. Drizzle their honey chili glaze on top for the perfect bite.

    Barman Joe Cleveland may take the prize for most ambitious cocktail menu: G&T's, sherry drinks, porrones, tipples, molecular-gastronomy creations like liquid-nitrogen sangria and frozen gin meringue!

    The bar is mostly first-come, first-serve, with some stools and a counter. Go for one of the Spanish-style gin and tonics, flavored with fruits and botanicals, or a nice glass of sangria on tap. Read more

    Some of the best Sangria I have ever had (and I try Sangria at every Tapas restaurant I go to) and the Patatas Bravas were excellent, if a little non-traditional.

    Salmon crostata with truffle oil, grilled octopus and kale salad. Skip patatas bravas and cheesecake bite. Bar seating.

    totally worth staking out the bar area in the sun room for a spot at the long table to enjoy their delicious cocktails and tapas!

    Make sure to snag a reso weeks in advance! The Arroz Cromosa, the Croquetas and the Sunny Side Up Egg were all to die for. Pair them with a perfectly crafted signature cocktail and you're golden.

    Such a cute spot, right by the water. The cocktails are amazing and the tapas - superb! Get a Galleon and a side of patatas bravas and you're set. Those shrimp are great too
  • Beerblondie V.
    Snagged a seat at the bar! Sunny side up egg with shrimp is a must! Also, whole calamari, crispy shrimp and chickpea pancake and patatas bravado are divine! Drinks are off the hook!

    Chef Michael Chiarello serves some of the best Spanish tapas in the country. I especially enjoy the house cured meats and any of their pintxos with a chilled beer from Barcelona.

    Try as many things as you can. Blue cheese ice cream with apply pie/ tart, the Bronzino, the peppers with shredded jambon, Marchegiano/jambon/apricot preserves, beet skewers... All amazing.

    Was here for lunch and tried a mixture of the hot tapas. Wasn't mad about the "sunny side up". The duck & pork meatballs were good and the Brussels sprouts were amazing

    Surprising number of vegetarian options. Very accommodating. Good paella. For meat eaters, octopus is fantastic.

    Literally everything is amazing. Wood grilled octopus, sea urchin and iberico lardon, sunny side up egg with shrimp, and the olive poached head on gulf prawns. Can't go wrong with anything.

    If you're not going to the restaurant for dinner, try hard to get a seat at the bar! The bartenders are great fun and constantly whipping up drinks with the most amazing presentations! (Smoke, fog)

    The secret of the Sutter Smash is the cinnamon dusting, which adds a bit of intrigue to an otherwise conventional bourbon cocktail.

    You cannot go wrong with the sunny side huevos (w grilled shrimp, fried potatoes and topped w a chorizo sauce). So popular it usually stays in the rotation. .

    Can't go wrong with the food here. My favorite item on the menu is the Barça gin and tonic. Best G&T. Ever.

    Its spanish gin tonic is delicious! PS if you get a rose into your drink, probably is because you like to the bartender or waiter ;)

    Everything was great, but do not leave without ordering the Pluma (acorn-fed pork shoulder loin). It's some of the best pork I've ever tasted.

    Hey a great way to eat in Spain without getting on a plane. The gin drinks are ace. Also don’t forget to get the brave potatoes and pulpo.

    The Croquetas de Pollo and Sunny Side-up Huevo are delicious. The Bikini is outstanding and must order, even if you don’t like eggplant.

    Prepare to battle the friendly chaos in the closed-in patio if you don't have a reservation. Fried shrimp is to die for. Stick to the cocktails for one-of-a-kind flavor combinations.

    One of the few nice tapas places in SF. Apparently famous for it gun and tonics although I didn't notice anything particularly special about them! 🙈😂

    The pluma is the most amazing pork I've ever had. Acorn fed pork shoulder with honey chili glaze. It looked and tasted like steak.

    The Oracle cocktail, in honor of the America's Cup. Tip: "it is safe to sail when the fog lifts". Delicious and so pretty!
