Tropisueño

Tropisueño

Mexican. Tropisueño offers a refreshing approach to San Francisco Mexican restaurants, opting for a casually elegant setting over the clamorous, vibrantly decorated style common in most Mexican restaurants. The menu is impressive with reasonably priced plates of traditional Mexican cuisine that are simply prepared yet bright with flavor. During lunch, Tropisueño is a casual, full service taqueria for quick and easy midday dining. The tequila selection is out of this world.

Fancy place looking out onto Yerba Buena Lane.   So the location is great, too bad the service is weak -- sat for about 10 minutes trying to get a waiter and when he came over, we realized he had been sitting at the neighboring table drinking wine with another guest.   That left a bad taste in my mouth and we hadn't even ordered yet.

If you want ambiance, this might be the place for you; although the after work crowd is a bit raucous.  I've seen some reviews that say the chips are great, but to me they were mealy and thin. The ceviche was good, although is was a little soggy.  Did it sit in the lime juice too long?  Not sure, but I'm outta here tonight.
