Chic Mission hangout with Argentinean grilled meats & small plates plus a terrace & 2 cocktail bars.- Google
"Pork Belly: - Good crispy pork belly, but a bit overdone."
"Braised Beef Ribs - At this point, I think we were already full."

Awesome place to hang out when the weather is nice. It gets busy though, so it's best to go in early before the after-work rush and/or go with a smaller group. If you go during the rush, be prepared for a wait! The drinks and food were pretty good, although I honestly remember the view more than anything. Casual and fun vibe. Definitely can't wait to go back!

El Techo de Lolinda is one of the few spots to enjoy a rooftop view in the Mission — and is an infinite improvement upon the former tenant, the vile and grotesque Medjool.

One of the few places in San Francisco with a roof top view. The food is great and authentic Mexican, you can smell the outside grill as you eat. Very nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Safe choice for romantic dinner or a group of friends!

Not sure if this is the only legit rooftop bar in SF. It's a great spot for a weekend brunch, or evening drinks. I recommend their chicharonnes. Be prepared for a line downstairs, and bring a jacket as it sometimes gets windy up on the roof.

The rooftop is not worth the wait. 1/3 of the tables are next to the bathrooms / kitchen. That area smells funny. 1/3 of the tables are in the middle. You won't see the view anyways, because the bar is always packed with people just standing there. The food + drinks were just ok. Host creates an unnecessary long line as a marketing gimmick to draw in the clueless herd.

Really nice staff and servers. Chill atmosphere with plenty of heaters to keep you warm until the tequila kicks in. Go for a pitcher, definitely worth every penny.

We walked in and was seated for 45 minutes before my party was acknowledged. The acknowledgement came from my request via phone to speak to a manager since every waiter and waitress disregarded my table completely. There were 2 other parties that arrived after me that received food, drinks, and service and we sat there with a menu only and not even a welcome I'll be with you in a sec. After Eddie the manager arrived he attempted to make things right and apologized but everyone had an excuse as to why we were not served, which was then my excuse to leave and post this horrible experience! I won't be returning. Horrible customer service!
