Invited to a birthday celebration being held there, I visited for the first time on a Saturday night. There a parking lot adjacent to the pub, which was filled when I arrived, so parked on the street, with some help. Inside is very spacious as its setup more like a lounge with the bar at the center. There is an expansive patio area, which is where our group was. Great ambiance, comfortable seating and a full slate of artesenal beers to choose from. I really enjoyed the American Pale Ale and chased it with very tasty tapas - buffalo wings (spicy, a great complement to cold beer), papas bravas (cheese covered cubed fries) & chicharrón (fried pork belly with great sauces). We tried a pizza, was not impressed at all, wouldn't recommend it. Everything else was excellent though. Good service by attentive waitresses and timely kitchen and bar service. Will definitely plan to go back again.

This was the second time we went to this restaurant, and it was for a special occasion - my wife's birthday. It was her choice because she likes their version of her favorite dish, risotto! This was the day after Valentine's Day, so there weren't many people there, making parking inside the compound a breeze. As we entered the restaurant veranda, we were immediately greeted and as we went inside, were greeted again and seated immediately. The ambiance is very intimate and comfortable, and we had the same waiter as on our previous visit, about 8 months prior (always a good sign when good waiters remain at the same location). For starters, we had Yuca balls filled with cheese, which were warm, fresh and delicious. The wife had her Fruta del Mar Risotto, which she thoroughly enjoyed - I had the Oso Buco (which comes with a side of Risotto and an excellent brown sauce), which was tender and very tasty - the 9yo had Chicken tenders and fries, which he enjoyed even more when he was able to add some salt. To drink, we both hand Sangria tinto, which was well balanced and the right blend of fruit and alcohol, making for a timely summer drink to pair with our meals. For dessert, we shared a wonderful Brownie and Ice Cream, which they did an excellent job presenting it on a large plate saying "Feliz cumpleaños" with candles. The brownie was served warm, filled with walnuts and had great flavor - not bitter or dried out as we often find at other restaurants at times. Overall, this was an excellent experience - from the ambiance, level of service, quality of the food and infrastructure. The night was a big hit and we highly recommend visiting them when you are in the mood for Italian.

After a busy Sunday, we decided to go out for dinner vs. cooking a late night dinner. The consensus was for Chinese food and settled on checking out this restaurant, which was new to us. Turns out this is the location that previously was La Pampa (didn't realize they were no more), so we were familiar with the layout. There's limited parking in the back thru a tight alley way, which we safely navigated. We were seated immediately, as there we two other groups in the dining area. They offer a full menu of typical Chinese plates + a full bar with a robust list of cocktails to choose from. We selected the following dishes: Fried shrimp wonton appetizer - an OK dish with not much flavor; Chicken Fried Rice - this was a good choice as it was not greasy and had some flavor; Shrimp Chow Fun - a decent dish that came with a fair amount of shrimp and light soy based sauce; Agridulce Pork - good portions of pork meat cooked in a sweet red sauce, which was went over well with everyone. Overall, the food was good, which you are able to increase the flavor profile with your choice of three table sauces (agridulce, spicy and soy). Personally, I preferred the spicy sauce as it added a good kick to all the dishes. The service was very good, as our waiter was very attentive, made us feel welcome and was pleasant throughout our stay. The only somewhat negative feedback we had is that the music was loud and created more of a bar ambiance vs. Chinese cuisine. Our recommendation would be to lower the volume a little and play more oriental style music to set the stage for an Asian food experience. Final verdict - a good place for a family meal or for a group of adults looking for decent Chinese food with a wide bar selection.

Visited for the first time by taking advantage of an OfertaSimple. Centrally located in a small strip mall with mostly other restaurants, parking was not an issue this Thursday night. Greeted and seated promptly upon entry, we selected the following - Spring Roll appetizer (a good, light starter for us three); Chicken Thai Rice (good not great, could be a bit more spicey to add more flavor); Chicken wings (nothing special). We paired it with Coconut lemonade, which tasted great, though it's a small serving vs. other restaurants for the same price. Overall, a decent restaurant that doesn't clearly separate itself from other Sushi options in the area.

Saturday night dinner decision was made easy with the Degusta discount offering, so we made dinner reservations for 8pm and headed to the Balboa Mall. Its central location with ample parking is an added plus in the decision matrix of where to spend our dollars - no disappointment there. We were seated right away inside the restaurant, decided on the following options - Thai Curry Shrimp, Kurma Chicken, Basmati Rice & Garlic Naan. Everything was delicious and served very hot, as we like it. Overall, this is a good option for Indian food, with friendly service and comfortable ambiance. We recommend it and plan to continue to patronize this establishment.

Searching for a new post church, Sunday breakfast/brunch spot with quality food, service and setting, we decided to check out this local coffee shop that we've driven past multiple times in the Plaza 75 strip mall. With proximity being a benefit (located in a central San Fran location), we easily found parking there (valet is on offer as well) and entered to a quaint, comfortably decorated dining area. We were greeted quickly, seated right away and reviewed their comprehensive menu - they offer all day breakfast, lunch and dinner items. Our intent was fully focused on breakfast, so we ordered the following: Blueberry Pancakes (3 stack) w/Scrambled eggs and Bacon (soft) - the pancakes were stuffed with blueberries and topped with a blueberry sauce. Loved the pancake mix and how fluffy they came out, making it a perfect pairing with the blueberries. Eggs were scrambled from real eggs, which is always my preference and the bacon were almost country style, which means there were more robust that the standard fare you pick up in the supermarket. Great choice! Our 9yr old had the French Toast (La Francesita) - covered with dulce de leche, chantilly sauce, whipped cream and fresh strawberries, he devoured everything on the plate in nothing flat, said he loved every bite - another winner. The wife had Hojaldre Special - An hojaldre (fried flour dough) covered with tender sliced beef and eggs - another dish that went over very well, with great taste and portions. For drinks, I had a large cappuccino (made with a good, mild coffee) and the wife and son had natural pineapple juice - all were well prepared and fitting matches to our meals. Overall, the service is excellent as we felt well attended to and everyone had very pleasant demeanor throughout our visit. This is another gem that is worth discovering, which we will be visiting more regularly for sure.

This is a quality Italian restaurant with very good service in a quaint setting. Visited here for the first time on a Tuesday evening to celebrate our wedding anniversary. There is limited parking inside the compound (appears to be a converted grand old house), with parking spots available in front of the property fence (sidewalk area). It was raining and one of the waiters greeted us with umbrellas to ensure we stayed as dry as possible. There is a large balcony area for alfresco dining or to enjoy happy hour with friends, as well as en expansive interior space for a/c dining. The waiters were very professional in their approach with us throughout our time there, being attentive but not overly so. Our selections were all very good - Fried Mozzarella balls in Tomato sauce for the appetizer - fresh cheese balls lightly fried sitting in very flavorful tomato sauce, Wife had the Fruta del Mar Risotto - a great blend of seafood and fresh Risotto cooked to perfection (not too soft/dry) served in a ceramic pot to serve as you wish. I had the Oso Bucco atop white Risotto with sauteed vegetables on the side - tender Oso Bucco with a light wine sauce with green peas sitting on top of fresh made risotto. An excellent dish! Our son had chicken fingers w/fries - can't go wrong with that for an 8yo For desert we shared a Brownie a la mode - large serving of vanilla ice cream atop a warm, tasty brownie. Overall, every selection was excellent and we were pleasantly surprised that the portions were also reasonable. Often times, better restaurants offer great food with minimal portions, which never makes sense to us (pay more, get less). With such a fantastic dining experience, we highly recommend this restaurant as a must visit when you're in the mood for great Italian food in a dressy causal setting.

Saturday night out with the family, decided to visit one a tried and true sushi experience to minimize the risk of a miss. It was a busy evening, a few days post quincena - with the expanded San Francisco location, there is more parking available which was a nice bonus to easily find a spot. The restaurant was very active, with outdoor and inside dining and the waiters were all running around attending to the full house of diners. We ordered quickly - our son had his usual chicken fingers w/fries - can't go wrong there. The wife had a Tsugoi (full roll) - this is one of the best dishes in our opinion and did not disappoint. I also had a Tsugoi (full roll) sin queso as well as an Arigato (full roll) sin queso - a very good combination with all of our rolls made with fresh ingredients and in good presentations. We chased our meals with Coconut lemonade, always a hit, no different today. With the expanded location and adequate availability of staff, we had a good experience and recommend this location as a mainstay option for your sushi desires.

Took advantage of a promo to check out this restaurant for the first time with the family for a Sunday dinner. Centrally located off of Via Israel, there is available parking spots in front of the restaurant, though not many. We were greeted at entry by a very pleasant waitress who was phenomenal throughout the evening with us. They offer a very extensive menu to select from for a variety of sushi, sashimi, nigiri etc. - typical Japanese fare. We ordered a selection of sushi for the wife and I to share and a chicken fingers meal for the little guy. The quality of the ingredients was apparent - everything tasted very fresh with good flavor. Our only issue was that the rolls where shorter than at other sushi restaurants, High quality, less quantity. They offer a wide variety of drinks, beers, sodas and cocktails to pair with your meal. Overall, this is a high quality & service restaurant option that's great for a special occasion, in our opinion.

This visit was a disappointment - had the same meal as I did in our previous visit, but this time, had some issues - received only one egg vs. two, two strips of bacon vs. four, pancakes were smaller, white cheese slices were incredibly salty and the hojaldres was not mixed well as they tasted like they had too much baking powder along with using coconut flour, resulting in a bitter aftertaste. In addition, the servers are pleasant, however, they were more interested in their phones and chatting with each other behind the counter vs. attending to customers. At one point, I had to get up and approach the counter to ask for syrup for my son's pancakes, which they missed bringing with his meal, since it was impossible to get their attention. Also, had to remind them multiple times to clean our table, which was sticky from previous customers, and to get water. Frankly, seems like lack of supervision is the issue here. This is a good restaurant that is not focused on consistent execution
