Worst service I have received of any restaurant! The host did not know where to sit us. After finding a decent place to sit. They ask us to move to another location for another larger party coming in. So we sat close to the door. It took them for a long time to get back to us to request an order. We decided to leave. The manager begged us to stay and offer us the first drink on the house. We requested a sangria pitcher for both of us. When the bill came they said we had to pay half of the pitcher because that was not included as part of the drinks on the house. They should have mentioned that in the beginning!! We did not order any food as the prices where absurd!! Then I went to the bathroom and left my purse and phone. When I got back the sangria pitcher and glasses where gone. When I notice, the next day that my IPhone was missing, I called as soon as the open to speak with the manager was very nasty in not looking for my iPhone. I told him we were his last clients of the night, and nobody would had taken it as no one else besides his employees where there. I will never go there again. The service sucks!!! P.S. the host had his hands grabbing a customer’s ass. I had better service at the Renaissance Diner next door!

Great atmosphere, delicious food, even better drinks - go with the peach margarita! Always quick and friendly service. Not exactly super cheap, but well worth the cost. Definitely recommend this place.

Great Place for Dinner with Your Drinks

The place has a great atmosphere - it's full of people having a fun time and spending time with friends - creating a close but exciting vibe. Their margaritas are not to be missed and are perhaps the largest in the city. The menu is expansive and food is solid, but its definitely not the best Mexican meal in the city. The good-looking wait staff are friendly, but not overly attentive. You should go to Arriba Arriba for a good time and great drinks.

Visiting from SF, I didn't expect such authentic mexican cusine, let alone the great service. Arriba's (in HK) was one of my fine NY memories. Everyone in my group of 4 had different entrees, and were all pleased. Good prices, too. Can you open one in San Francisco?!
