"I made reservations the day before our dinner. It was for 4 of us at 5:15pm...and early dinner the night of a nearby concert. Two hours before our seating, I get a voicemail stating they were overbooked and they could still seat us, but we needed to leave by 6:45. That was fine...just an annoying message to get, but I get this happens sometimes. Anyways, we get there and the waitress was clearly overworked and stressed about the overbooking...she made sure to let us know, not once, but twice that we needed to leave by 6:45. The food and drink was delicious and just adventurous enough to be different, but in a tasty way...unique flavors you would never expect. If it wasn't for the pushy attitude, we would have had a great time. We weren't even asked for refreshed drinks...we had to flag our waitress down and then she seemed annoyed that we were ordering more drinks...like we weren't going to be out at the time she needed us to be out. My husband actually asked her if she would prefer that we go across the street to get another drink instead of sitting at her table...she didn't answer. All of this becoming more and more annoying when there was only ONE other table in the restaurant....It was a large group table and they were busy at the bar, but that was it. They had 2 waiters working and one bartender...clearly not staffed for the concert. Overall, ridiculously cute place, great menu, awesome drinks...and ridiculously rude service that I just don't need and I'd choose to go elsewhere. Too bad because their sangria is the best I've had!"

"The owner/host remembered my name simply from the reservation. Very personable and attentive. She took time to describe the dishes and was very accommodating. The soyrizo sliders and the arepas relleno were a treat for the taste buds. Well stocked bar. I highly recommend this place. It was a serendipitous find and perfect for date night for my wife and I."

"I have eaten at Poquito several times with my 20 something year old daughters and their friends. The menu selection is large, diverse, fresh and flavorful. We always order plates to share, which is fun for a group. The sangria and cocktails are consistently yummy. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the Dogpatch."

"The potatoes were generous, the ham croquettes were tiny. The tacos with jicama "tortilla" felt fresh and delicious."

"Based on reviews and menu, we had hoped for more. The prices were high for such small portions and the food was boring - I'm pretty sure there was thousand island dressing in the tacos? Also the small plate menu was fun but lacked any protein based options."

"Enjoyed small plates of flavorful, well portioned Latin American and Ecuadorian foods shared between friends. The service was great and beer and wine selection decent. Definitely a hidden gem worthy of checking out."

"Had to eat early at 5:30 pm, but no one greeted us once inside the door. In fact, there was only one table of two seated. So it was pretty dead which is fine cuz we just wanted a quick bite. However, sorta odd no one greeted us, and we sat 10 mins with no waiter coming by. Nothing wow'd but the place executed on the three items we ordered. A red snapper fish taco, a shrimp taco, and a chorizo slider. The fish taco was the best item, but I think it was $12 for two small tacos. Not exactly cheap but most things aren't in the Bay Area. The sangria was a happy hour $5, but I wouldn't order it again. The area is still slowly going through gentrification. This is not a place I would make a point to come back to."

"I thought the food was quite good. Interesting and different from the tapas I have had locally or in Barcelona. It was very convenient to a friend's gallery opening that evening, a delightful discovery. That said, it's quite distant from my home in Oakland and it wasn't so swell that I'd make it a dining destination. If you're in the hood, though, it's great."

"We ate at Poquito on a Saturday night in early February, 2015.
The menu is great--we ordered 7 or 8 different plates and all were EXCELLENT! Portions are on the smaller side, but the server made this clear up front so we were not surprised.
The ambiance was very relaxed and welcoming, with simple decor. Good for both couples and groups of up to 8, I would say. We were the first diners to arrive when we came in at 5:45pm, and by the time we left around 7:45 the dining room was at ~3/4 capacity, with additional space still available in the bar area below.
I have no complaints about the service, which was fairly prompt and accurate. The food arrived within a reasonable period and drinks were refreshed at regular intervals.
Extra credit for the owner, who came to our table personally to inquire after our experience and gave us the history of why he started the restaurant and the significance of some of the items on the menu.
4.5/5 Stars"
