Tres - SF (fka Tres Agaves) Ratings and Reviews
Tres was an interesting experience. We were well taken care of at the beginning of the night, but service tapered off once we got our appetizers. Some of the food was excellent (the steak stew), some was a little overcooked (the chicken mole) and one dish was completely unbalanced (the carnitas). We will probably be back at some point, but more careful in what we order.
The food was great . I had the Jardin Tacos. The primary ingredient was hen of the woods mushrooms and they were perfect. My husband got the Sopa Ranchero, which is listed as an appetizer but is plenty for a main dish. The problem we had was timing. We both ordered cocktails expecting to sip on them while we waited for our food. When the waiter returned to get our food order the drinks had not arrived, so we ordered some chips to nibble on with our drinks. The chips came out almost immediately as did the entrees!!!! Still no drinks. We nudged someone and they finally arrived but one of them was the wrong drink and had to go back. Not a deal breaker and I'd definitely go back if in the area, but coordination was definitely off.
food was very very good. upscale Mexican food. Perfect precursor to going to Luzia at Cirque de Soleil. However it was utterly shocking to order coffee and be told that the restaurant is out of coffee. How can you be in restaurant business and run out of coffee? Were they just giving us a line or what? Most bizarre thing ever experienced at a brunch restaurant. Service a little uneven with plates coming out to table in a very hodgepodge fashion. so we all ended up drinking water cause there was not coffee. so so strange. the waiter wanted us to drink tequila...um....maybe after the circus...and not on a Sunday. Skimpy on the chips.
I love bringing friends to Tres - they are never disappointed. Tasty Mexican food for a good price. The chips, salsa and guacamole are always a favorite. The fish tacos were delicious. My friend was so happy he could order a Mexican Coca Cola - in fact, he ordered two. I will be back!
Tres was delicious and had very unique margarita options. I had the herbaceous and it was served in a beautiful glass and was a very elegant drink. I also ordered the vegetarian tacos and they were fantastic. service was great, plenty of guacamole. Atmosphere is modern but warm. Cannot wait to go back! thank you
The food was excellent, and as others have noted, the service was very slow and the waitstaff inattentive. The restuarant was far from full or busy, yet the waiter and pretty much everyone seemed to have something else to do other than take an order to ask if we'd like a refill. The other thing that was odd was we wanted to order some guacamole, only to be told that all of it was reserved for a private party (we saw the party, which was only about 10 people). What kind of Mexican restaurant runs out of guacamole at 5pm? We would have ordered dessert, but it took two hours to get one round of drinks and our entrees.
I had only previously been to Tres for private parties in their backroom. We were seated and served quickly, I enjoyed my margarita and carnitas entree, my companion ordered the pollo con mole and wished only that there'd been more mole sauce. In a neighborhood drowning in unimaginative and overpriced American pub fare served to overpaid man-children in hoodies, Tres was a fine business dinner choice.
The experience I've had a tres is amazing. Love the environment and food! I'm a meat person. I love their angus steak platter. The only thing I wish they offered was more meat portion. The angus steak platter is only 8oz. Wish they had 20oz. But over all I love the place. I recommend anybody to go their for their Mexican food.
The food was delicious. The server was amazing. The hostess at the door was terrible. We were there to celebrate my girlfriends birthday and we wanted to switch to a different table. At the time, the restaurant was at 20% capacity and we were just a party of 4. They told us all the other tables were reserved. Weird. When pushed again, they said that it is a waitress/waiter allocation issue and they don't want to overload them. Weird since our request was to love 2 tables down to avoid the wind from the door.
Anywho, after a lot of complaining, they finally moved us and the hostess said "are you finally happy? Don't be surprised if your food is super late or cold".
The waitress we had was super gracious and rescued the night and birthday celebration for us. The food was great and made us eventually forget about the rough start.
What Mexican restaurant runs out of guacamole on a busy weekend? I almost thought they were kidding. Seriously.
This would have absolutely been a deal-breaker had I known when we made the reservation. In fact, my party and I specifically walked ~2 mi from our hotel to the restaurants in anticipation of all the margaritas and chips/guac we were going to enjoy.
We complained to the server a little who then sent over the manager. Basically, he said they ran out and there was nothing he could do. He seemed aloof. He seemed arrogant. And he made me feel like I was the one who was crazy for being upset. Nothing you can do? Really? How about apologize? How about - oh, I don't know - throw in a free dessert? How about act like you care? The service was just awful. Which tainted everything else. Really disappointing experience. It was beautifully decorated, but I would never return. Nor would I recommend. Too many outstanding choices in San Francisco.
I had placed a reservation for 5. We arrived and were seated quickly. We were seated at a table that was for 4 people, and were given a chair to throw at the end. This made the table feel crammed. We were also seated right behind the bar area - where the TV's are set to MAX volume levels and results in having everyone shouting the entire time. This will not be somewhere my office will use for future dinner spots, which is really unfortunate, as it is very close to our office.
Food was ok, a lot of fatty pieces in the carnitas. The drinks were also mediocre. The service to receive these drinks took an awfully long time. One was due to the waitress forgetting to put in the order, and the bar tender mentioned he'd take it off the bill. Not sure if that happened, but it was a nice gesture.
It's been a while since I've dined at Tres. It's sometimes difficult to get a reservation. The friends I went with used to be regulars. We were all three extremely disappointed with the food. Something has changed and it's not good! The chips and guacamole were terrific as always but the chicken enchilada was bland and not at all as flavorful as it once was. The shrimp entree which my friend recommended I order (he said it was the best in town) was awful! It was a generous portion of shrimp but it had absolutely NO flavor or seasoning. The shrimp were accompanied by a mound of onions piled on top of 2 thick, soggy pieces of white bread. Is this really a recipe?? Yikes! My friend quickly retracted his praise. The service was the only thing pleasant about the meal. I doubt I'll ever go back. There's too many other great choices in SF!
The service was great. And the food was excellent. The only negative was that when we arrived about 15 mins early, we were told that the kitchen was about to close because they were not busy enough. While I understand that staying open and paying staff without customers does not make good business sense, we would have appreciated a phone call to let us know so that we could have arrived earlier to help the restaurant out or made other plans so as not to feel rushed.
The manager cancelled the 8:30pm reservation when I arrived and told me that the kitchen was closing since I was the last reservation of the night, and they hadn't had reservations for two hours prior. I will not be trying to go back.
They were 20 minutes late seating us despite our reservation. And when they did seat our party of 6, we did not even get a table. They put is at a weird bar in the back where I couldn't even talk to my clients. I won't be back, it was embarrassing.
We were party of six, everyone seemed to enjoy the food. Service was a little sketchy with regard to appetizers. Had to ask a few times for chips and salsa; this was a day when there was no Giants game in town so business at the restaurant was pretty slow.
The restaurant had a great selection of dining options. I highly recommend the mushroom quesadilla as well as the poblano dish, both very flavorful! Tons of great margarita options, I enjoyed a classic Don Julio margarita while my friend chose the one with the peppers in it which although I'm not one for spicy stuff, was relatively mild and absolutely delicious! Highly recommend this restaurant!! :)
As others has said, it is way overpriced for what you get. I like the typical type of Mexican food so I ordered the chicken burretto. The others in my group order the Tacos. I got two burrettos for about $18. That did not include the rice and beans, which we then ordered. The tacos were just three tacos. The service was very good. It was on a Friday night so the bar was packed and it was very loud. We could not hear the conversation of our friends at our table. I would not plan on going back again.
