This spectacular restaurant in deep in the MIssion. It's a neighborhood undergoing gentrification so the rents are low. Lots of new restaurants abound because of that. My wife and I have searched for a great steak in SF for years. We finally stumbled upon LoLinda. It's an Argentine themed restaurant (not be be confused with Brazilian with waiters walking around...

Service, setting, and food all outstanding. Finally, a SF restaurant that serves a tremendous grilled octopus appetizer, prepared perfectly, as well as their bone marrow (informed before ordering that marrow would have two pieces, but were served only one😔)

Excellent food and cool dark and cozy venue. Great place for sharing plates and having a family dining experience. Everything we had was tasty, especially the octopus.

We also went after the great reputation. No sooner had we ordered our cocktails and food and 5 mins later our food arrived! Still waiting for drinks! Not good. So there we were eating starters whilst drinking water. We asked the waitress to slow it down as it felt like a fast food place. She replied saying she was super... More

Looked good online with all the pics but...Argentinean? Really? First there was no bread at the table. When asked , the waitress seemed surprised.....I was born and raised in Argentina and there is no restaurant that I know of that doesn't bring a basket of bread before you eat. She did ask me if I wanted "butter or chimichurri" and... More

What a perfect birthday celebration! We stumbled onto this restaurant completely unexpectedly. We were waiting for dinner at the adjoining restaurant when we sat at the bar and we were dazzled with the talent of Josh the bartender who made some really amazing drinks. The best amaretto sour with real egg whites and fun eclectic drinks offered by Lolinda. Our... More

Stopped by for cocktails but dmdddtp eating at the car. Fantastic decision! our bartender / waiter provided excellent drinks (FABULOUS amaretto sour for me) . The empanada de pollo, trout, and pastel de chocio (beef and veggie pie) were fabulous. The Tira (braised short ribs) were tasty but a bit fatty for me, and I could see only minimal veggies....

This is some of the best food in the Mission. But it's so loud you can forget having a conversation.

I got the name of the restaurant from a Google search of Best Restaurants in the Mission District. The food in this place is absolutely delicious! We got chicken empanadas, ribeye steak, skirt steak, palm salad, grilled octopus, chicken skewers all of which were excellent. We also tried their desserts. My favorite was the cookies and milk. One of the... More
