I had very high expectations for this place, I think i was satisfied but had some other vision of what the atmosphere would look like. It seemed on the "small side" and it felt that way when you visit the salad bar. I visited a different Brazilian steakhouse in TX with the same price range but was elegant. Espetus was disappointing in the decor. The steak itself was nice, and flavorful.. slightly salty for my taste. So do have some salad to help with the over saltiness of the meat. The star is of course the 'picata' -- i think its some special cut of beef and it shines in all brazilian steakhouses. Definitely hold out for that and not fill up on filler meats like the chicken or the lamb. These are ok, but you want to get your money's worth. The wine menu is nice and they do offer cocktails from their bar area. its above average place since San Francisco Bay area doesn't really have that many of these places to compare. If I had to recommend a better place. Go checkout Fugo Da Chao (in Texas) - its worth every dollar spent.

I am a native San Franciscan, passed by this place many a time but had never eaten here before. My daughter recommended this place and wanted to eat here for her birthday so off we went for a family dinner. The food was excellent, parking was easy (there's a paid parking lot next door) and there were hardly any people in there. We got seated right away and a friendly waiter waited on us. I recommend Salchipapa (french fries with hotdogs) and garlic mushrooms for appetizers and Saltado de Pollo for main course. For dessert, Mousse de Mango or the Flan. The flan was the best I have ever tasted; it was flavored with cloves. To top it off, the meal was reasonably priced. Definately a place to go back to...
I have heard a lot of good things about this place but I have always been skeptical about word of mouth . So one day my wifes family and I had the chance to have dinner here and it is one of the best places I have been to in years. Although it doesnt sound appetizing the chicken hearts is one of the most delicious choice of meat they have here. Dont knock it until you have tried it .
This place is truly one of a kind, I love it in here, the fantastic food, the flattering service and attention that they give to their customers, truly one of the most amazing dining experience of my life.
Decent food, decent service. Convenient parking garage nearby, in case you do not get street parking. It is a great experience, when the dancing (or music) is part of the night. Definitely recommend it.
Delicious Peruvian food with very friendly service. We had the rotisserie chicken , one of their specialties , the yucca ( similar to a potato texture more fiber) and the tartar. It was all very good.
My husband and friends find this place to be clean, confortable and needles to say quite filling.. Great food and drink..we bring all our out of town guests to enjoy the fantastic fare..
The food is great, mexican-mayan a little different, nice place and the price very reasonable.
the best pupusas in town in the cleanest mission restaurant.
You better try it, meeennnnn (^_^)
