Spanish
Owners Luis Raga and Raul Aguilera brings you their vision of a casual bar/restaurant in Spain: a fun and unpretentious spot to gather friends, family, or dates. We bring you flavors from all over Spain, the concept is tapas and paellas to be shared at the table. You'll see dishes come on and off the menu often and while we offer a broad selection of dishes, due to our small kitchen, certain tapas will run out during the service. Don’t miss our Happy hour Mon-Fri 5-6pm ONLY on BAR & HIGH TOPS for heavily discounted tapas and drinks.
Also, make sure to check our back patio, it will transport you to a warm summer night of the south of Spain.
If driving street parking could be tricky, check out the SF general hospital parking structure just 2 blocks away from the restaurant. If coming from the East Bay or Peninsula location is just a few blocks from the freeway (exit Cesar Chavez/Potrero on the 80 freeway). The nearest Bart station is at Potrero & 24th, a 15-minute walk.

    Plus' include that the service was very prompt and friendly at Destapas. Negatives were that their prices are higher than Picaro and Esperanto, and their Paella ($36) was served to us underdone. The second time around, it wasn't that much softer, but we ate some of it because we were hungry. They charged 4 $ four a little basket of bread. We will not be returning.

    The albondigas & paella were delicious! Red wine paired well. Not enough vegetables on the Paella Valenciana. Secret to an excellent paella is the rice & flavors. They were excellent! Compliments to the Chef! The dessert, almond torte with pistachio ice cream, a dream come true! Paired well with expresso and an americano. Very convenient to those attending a show at The Brava Theater.

    Took my 3 exchange students from Spain before their prom. The staff was so welcoming and kind and it was so sweet watching them connect with the food and language. They were treated like celebrities 😍 One of the staff even put some cologne on them to get them all ready for prom. All the food was delicious and all three from Madrid & Iberia said the food was delicious, well cooked and authentic. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience over all. We will be back!!

    This is a lovely restaurant. We ate tapas and they were all delicious , though the sauces were a bit repetitive. The staff were very accommodating to our needs and even offered to delete a dish when we realized we had over-ordered. We ate on the patio which is really pretty, covered and so well heated that we removed our coats. Out there the volume was moderate and it was very easy to talk. Inside the restaurant it was very, very noisy. SO, if you want conversation, sit outside

    The jamon Iberica melted in your mouth and the patatas bravas was the perfect combo of crispy on the outside and soft on the inside with a splash of spicy. The pulpo was grilled just right with little hint of crispiness. The brussel sprouts was just the right amount sour and sweet. Everything was delicious! the owner and staff were all very nice and attentive.

    We love tapas and were excited to try this out. But it was meh. The mushroom croquettes didn’t seem to have any mushrooms and tasted of flour. They didn’t come with sauce, but when I asked, we were offered some. It didn’t make a huge difference. The olives allegedly had almonds, but the almonds were sliced so thinly I thought at first they were garlic. One pickle. Olives were tasty though. Cheese plate was excellent. Good variety, decent breast selection, and a nice fruit complement. Grilled vegetables were okay: under-seasoned, and oily, with lots of green pepper and onion, hardly any eggplant or red pepper. I could have heated a jar of Mezzeta and gotten the same. The deviled eggs were stunning. Perfectly cooked for finger food, and precisely seasoned. The roe was an excellent touch. We had ordered one of the pincho options, but they didn’t bring it, and never got back to us when questioned. The house rojo wine was fine. The place was hopping when we got there at eight, but had cleared out by nine. Probably not worth the Uber cost overall

    The menu was huge with lots of options. Really can't go wrong with any choices. We had something from each category - especially loved the Brussel sprouts with pomegranates. Service was great (Gonzales) and attentive. Great recommendations. Wine choices were vast. We lingered late and the whole staff was all enjoying food as they closed up. Will be back soon.

    Really enjoyed our first visit to Destapas and we'll be back. The tapas were well prepared and ingredients fresh and/or authentic. And the host was very helpful, moving us away from a noisy group and taking time to chat about dishes and wine. Nice guy, professional and laid back. Nice ambiance, too. We'll be back.

    Destapas has recently become one of my favorite go-to restaurants in SF. Been there 4 times in the past three months and it always delivers. It’s a warm and inviting space with super friendly owners Raul & Luis and staff, consistently excellent food at a great price point. The restaurant seems to be getting busier so I’m almost reluctant to post this review so I’m always able to get a table!

    Without a doubt, a real Spanish restaurant. A varied menu of magnificent quality. The croquettes, the empanada, the ensaladilla rusa, los canelones, the oxtail are very good... The service is excellent: very friendly and close. An authentic Spanish food experience (Spain is a world superpower in gastronomy) in San Francisco.
