    This place has great rooftop views, and pretty incredible tacos. One of the best rooftop bars and restaurants in the city. Be sure to get there early or you'll be waiting in line!

    Plus - not too many rooftop restaurants in SF. Minus - service and very oily food.

    Absolutely overrated. Service is slow and rude (that if anyone even responds), the view is so so , and there is a wait even when the rooftop is half empty. Not coming back

    Extremely popular spot that is a little overkill with the capacity control, but their drinks are tasty and you can't beat the view.

    Long waits, but on a warm summer night, it's worth it. Sit on the rooftop with a margarita and get their carnitas, with a view to downtown SF. A perfect evening.

    Great rooftop brunch place with view on the city. My compliments to Huarache - combination of eggs, tortilla, cheese and beef was perfect. Friends had Benedictos and Gallo Pinto and enjoyed that too.

    Your Order: Ceviche, Chips & Guac, The Paloma or Sangria, Carnitas by the Pound. Use the guacamole from your appetizer to top the carnitas tacos. (They provide the beans, salsa & endless tortillas)

    This Mission rooftop oasis is a popular spot for after-work margaritas and quesadillas that, thanks to their glass wind guards along the railings, remains comfortable even after night falls. Read more
