Buena Vida Cantina
Second time here and it didn’t disappoint. It was taco Tuesday and the crunchy shell taco was about the best I’ve ever had. This has become a favorite SF spot.
Great find! Excellent food and prompt service outdoors. Our only issue was too-loud music emanating from the outdoor speakers. Even with no one right next to us, it was hard to talk. But I'll go again. The tacos were fantastic.
Had a great dinner with a friend during the week. It was actually quiet on the street and we had a heater. Everything that we ordered was excellent!
Exceptional service for a delicious meal
Came here with a friend before a show at The Warfield. I did the five taco plate (carne asada, pollo rojo, fish, veggie, and crispy carnitas) and every single one was delicious! I loved the tartness of the Buenarita and the churros were delightful finish to the meal. Between the delicious food and the friendly staff, I would gladly make the trip up from the South Bay to dine here!
The server did not pace out the meal such that the chips/guacamole and appetizer arrived and a few minutes later so did our tacos. It would have been better had they given us the time to actually enjoy the appetizers.
Food, cocktails and service were all great! Welcoming, friendly and attentive staff helped us make great menu choices. Bartender makes a great Cadillac margarita.
Absolutely wonderful dinner here. Incredible drinks, food, & service. Highly recommend this spot to anyone look for a casual & delicious meal!
Great food! Do not miss the Brentwood corn. Tacos are delicious and if you’re init into churros, you have to try these. AMAZING!
Amazing servers, would absolutely go again! Make you feel like family.
The food and service are good. It's unfortunate that the suggested tips are calculated incorrectly on the total amount including tax and SF Mandates. So the 18% tip plus SF Mandate is actually a 25% tip of the pre-tax subtotal. I hate when restaurants do this.
Not too loud just perfect nice music service was amazing and the food was awesome🤩 overall great restaurant
We were so excited to enjoy happy hour, especially the mini tacos. They are not to be missed!
Awesome atmosphere, great service, delicious food, killer cocktails!
The food was amazing! We ordered chips and dip with chorizo and at least every taco on the menu!
What a nice surprise to find this great restaurants so close to our hotel. We went early on a midweek evening when the venue was not crowded. Great taco variety and we particularly enjoyed the fried avocado version!
the food was AMAZING! such good quality at such a reasonable price! and the service was so accommodating and so wonderful. GREAT music and vibes!
Staff was awesome fun and friendly, nice music, great drinks and food was delicious.
My Mother really enjoyed herself for Mother’s Day. Everything was excellent from the parking to the food. Prickly Pear Fromo me please!! Amazing drinks, and awesome service. We will be back for sure. Thank you for the enjoyable experience.
There was literally no point in me coming on to OpenTable to book a reservation with Buena Vida Cantina, I mean we were finally seated an hour AND fifteen minutes later. I originally booked a reservation for outdoor dining but was still seated indoors, I believe the staff was willing to accomodate my original request but had the gall to say that it would be another 15 min wait on top of the 1 hour+ we've already been waiting. The food was good but not good enough to make up for the 1 hour+ wait despite the fact that we did have a reservation.
They need to rethink their business model. Literally the worst service from being ignored by the empty hostess stand, slow service, and given the wrong food twice.
Great food, friendly staff, fun environment. Came on cinco de mayo, and was extremely happy with the meal. Will be back! Ps. Mango marg is 🔥
The service is great, and topped only by quality and amount of food you get for your money. I'm so glad to have this spot in my neighborhood.
Our food and drinks were good
Buena vida cantina had delicious food and great service!
Aaron, Angel and Kenny were the best. So welcoming and thoughtful. And the food! The tacos (and we are almost every kind) were exceptional and tasty and juicy. We will be back.
The vibe, the service, the food and the drinks -- all so great. Will definitely be back, and highly recommend others to dine at Buena Vida.
Delicious meal and great service. Must upgrade the tacos. So worth it!
Have been a few times, my new fav spot in the neighborhood. Tacos are tasting and cocktails are yummy. Great service.
Outdoor dining is pretty limited at the moment but they are being very safe by distancing tables and waiters stand at a distance when you are not masked/to take your order. They have heaters, which were nice but not super close to the tables so we didn’t get a lot of heat from them. Service was really amazing, super friendly and will make suggestions if you’re having trouble deciding. Food was surprisingly super delicious, go for the tacos!! I’d skip on the chips and queso dip because that was just ok.
The queso was extremely thin and the tortilla soup was like tomato soup with bits of chicken. We tried all of the tacos and the meat was dry in most of them. The pork and the fish were the best ones but not much better quality than a fast food restaurant.
Service was good, sad that the food wasn’t.
Great for date night or casual eats. Fantastic service, delicious food and drinks!
