fantastic food – My wife and I were invited to dinner here and it was great. The food was wonderful and fairly reasonably priced. Good luck trying to have a conversation. The place was jam packed and extremely noisy. It was hard to hear and annoying to have to shout to make a point. The owner was very helpful and even custom made a dish for the other couple we were with who had been there several times before. The food was delicious and the place is always crowded. We had a reservation and weren't seated until 30 minutes past our scheduled time, so make your reservation a little earlier than when you want to actually eat.

Best Nuevo Latino – I have been a long time patron of this fantastic restuarant. James (owner) and his staff provide first-class service in a casual atmosphere. The food is thoughtful and always fresh. And, great drinks and a great wine list!

Great food, Great atmosphere, Great value – I've gone to Destino many times and I'm never disappointed. All their small plates are creative, distinct from on another in flavor profiles, and frankly, fantastic. Their civiches are also terrific ? not overdone or too vinegary, and I always have to get Salmon when I go?the glaze is to die for! All this, and the prices are still incredibly reasonable!

One of my worst restaurant experiences ever – Seriously - how does this place stay in business? To begin with, the food is only so-so.

But my experience - after being forgotten about a couple of times, the night gets topped off with the bus-boy knocking a tall candle off the table next to us and get wax all over my pants and new my new shoes. He looks completely amazed and then scurries away. No one came back to the table for 10 minutes!! Being as nice as I could at this point, I have the waitress get the manager. His only comment is that he is sorry and that they would pay for dry-cleaning only. It's wax! Absolutely ridiculous.

Perfect on a Saturday night – Recently celebrated my bday here with some buddies. Totally accomodating for a party of 12 or larger. The food was delicious, i recommend the fixed price menu to get your samples in. Chile Relleno, Lomo Saltado and Churros with a Chocolate dipping, yumm! They were so cool and the service was perfect! I want to go back today!

Worth visiting twice! – I rarely visit SF restaurants more than once simply because there's an abundance of new places to try, but this is one worth a repeat visit! Service was professional, efficient, and we never felt rushed even though my friend and I were there for more than 3 hours. Great selection of small and large plates - the empanadas were very satisfying as was the yellowtail ceviche! We also had the pork chops with mashed sweet potatoes, which were good, but nothing special. Many around us ordered the lomo saltado, and it smelled and looked delicious! Something to try next time. Ambience is great as is the rest of the experience.

Go for the ceviche – All of the dishes we ordered were delicious. For the 2 of us we got 3 small plates & 1 big plate & shared everything. The ?A La Mexicana? ceviche was one of the best I?ve ever had ? very fresh tasting! (Their ceviche is served with only 2 plantain chips so be sure to order a side of the chips if you want to eat the ceviche with something crunchy.) The cornmeal biscuits with melted cheese (Arepas de Queso) melted in my mouth & the Peruvian Chicken Empanadas were extremely flavorful. The Lomo Saltado was a great dish to share or order as an entree ? hearty & a great mix of flavors. The mini alfajores cookies they serve at the end of the meal are cute & tasty!!! Between the 2 of us we had 3 drinks which made the total: $40/person. A little pricey but worth the trip :)
