I love going to Tropisueno every time I visit San Francisco. This is my favorite place to eat my favorite food! I've been here a total of 5 times and it never changes. I will recommend to make a reservation, and I will also mention that even if you have a reservation you're going to wait a bit. I have... More

The empanadas are very good! Can eat as a meal. This place is very busy. Reservations highly recommended. There is also a community sitting area if you choose to not wait for a table. It is tight fitting but it works. and is much more social if you choose. Food is good and great tequila selection.

We stumbled upon this restaurant via YELP as this was highly rated due to the proximity of the restaurant from our hotel. We didn't have a reservation but we were lucky to get a table as we came pretty late at around 9pm. Our server was very helpful as he advised us not to over-ordered. We had the chile Verde... More

We enjoyed our dinner here. I had the cactus enchiladas, which were recommended and delicious. My daughter had their quesadillas, which were perfect for a child. The noise level is a bit loud but did not detract from our meal. There can be a wait of thirty minutes or so but they keep track, and sat us early. It's a... More

The food is very good, and the place is very popular, so it is very hard to get a seat during normal dining hours, especially at lunch. You order, pay, the get a number and try to find a seat, for which you are on your own. The layout makes the dining area hard to navigate, and many tables accommodate... More

We were in the city around Christmas, and after reading a lot of good things about this restaurant, we decided to have dinner here. It was busy in the evening, and we had to wait nearly 25-30 mins to get a table, but it was worth the wait. We are vegetarians, and we knew better to ask the waiter for... More

Service was horrible. Food followed suit. Stay away . My wife and son sat down but I was prohibited from following as they closed down for a party. We were put at a dirty table. Food order was incorrect. Food was horrible. Stay away from this place

We had dinner and enjoyed the food, atmosphere with friendly service. Unfortunately a few hours later we were violently ill for next next 2 days and with only being in San Francisco for 4 days it really spoiled our trip.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
