Came here with friends last night for dinner. Food was amazing. Latin food in tapas style. Everything was delicious. The place is always packed. Definitely make reservation before you come. Very reasonable prices for San Francisco.

top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the
city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the

We only have MC and Visa and used one of those to pay. I'm not sure about AMEX as some merchants object to the high merchant fee. There are a lot of banks and ATM's in the area as well.

Lolo was designed by Lorena Zertuche using many recycled materials. It was our attempt to create an environment that is fun and without pretention. We strive to take common ideas from all around the world and give them a playful and delicious new perspective. We have a lot of fun bringing together the culinary traditions of Mexico and Turkey.
