Success! Thanks for posting your review of Esperpento. You’ve done the world some good today.

Needless to say, we were very happy campers.

A little on the shabby side. The location is a little on the crappy side. Parking, thank God, there's a garage across the street so that the dog I left in the car doesn't get harassed by bums. But who cares about all this really. The reason I went here is for the food! My friend even got a nasty ticket from a motorcycle cop since he was talking on the phone. Like the minute he picked up the phone coz it rang,... view more

Simply good tapas in San Francisco's Mission district

simply good tapas in San Francisco without the fancy decor. The food is important and ambiance. Huge parties are not favorable but the staff tends to accommodate everyone in stride.

unfair labor practices

okay, the food is pretty good, and this may not be what your looking for in a review (but i for one believe in voting with my dollar and wouldn't want to support this restaurant). i worked there for a few weeks and to avoid having to pay the cooks and the rest of the staff, the owner takes their wages out of the server's tips. this is an illegal practice and will be reported. if you don't want to support this kind of... view more

Good Casual Tapas Spot

The atmosphere is casual and inside of the resaurant looks a bit rundown, so I was surprised with how good the sangria and tapas were. We tried the paella on another visit and was also really tasty. The food here is a great value for the prices. It's loud and crowded and can get a bit hot in the summer but I have no complaints about the food or service.

My favorite lunch spot on 22nd Street

I work on 24th and Mission and come to Esperpento for lunch quite often. Take a look at the photo in the City Search listing and you'll see the little ""nook"" under the stairway. That's my favorite spot when I'm alone or with one other person.\r The staff has always been friendly, and since there's not much turnover they know the regulars and it probably means their boss treats them well too.. I'd like to supp... view more

We showed up with 15 people and no reservations on a Saturday night. Okay, not a wise move on our part, but they were so friendly and got us in in less than 45 minutes. The service is fantastic (doesn't hurt that the waiter was really cute and charming)! The food and sangria was also great. I highly recommend this place for an intimate time with few close friends or a large group. You want to keep the numbers up... view more

Esperpento is great!

I have been to Esperpento a few times and it is fun, friendly, warm, and the food is delicious! I love the fried Anchovies, but everything I've had (small plates) is really good. There is a wait sometimes, but it's usually fairly quick seating. It's a fun place to bring visitors.

Standard Tapas

I have been patronizing Esperpento for more than 10 years and I have to say it remains consistent - if not spectacular. You can't beat the prices either. Order some Sangria and try the garlic shrimp, spicy potatoes and mushrooms. They are consistently good.
