if all fails the first time, try...try again! – in the very heart of the true mission, this is a place to savor.
yes, it may take awhile to sometimes get your food, but it is all worth the wait.
I have gone here for years, and the service is typically good. the yuca, plantains, and pork dishes are always tasty and flavorful...a down home feel and vibe for a native Puertorriqueño o Cubano!
so close, yet no encounter... – It was bad enough I waited 20 minutes to order, and another 45 to receive my food, but what made it most intolerable was the waitress ignoring us the entire time.
When we finally got our food, a most uninspired salad, bland flavorless beans and overcooked white rice, overcooked yuca, we had to return one of the entrees because it had pork in it, even though we specified vegetarian. The fruit shake had so much sugar in it that it tasted like liquid cotton candy. And it would have been nice if the menu mentioned they are made with milk.
Disappointing food and neglectful service. Yes, it's cheap, but I don't think a crappy meal is a good value just because it's cheap.
So sad because there are so few latin american restaurants in the Mission that represent other cultures besides mexican cuisine.
Disappointed with a Capital "D" – Maybe they were having an off night, but this place lowers the bar for Bay Area dining and it's quite possibly the worst meal I've ever had. Aside from the cheap wine, which came out immediately, everything else seemed to crawl from the kitchen as if the cook were blind-folded and had one arm tied behind his back. Even the salad took a half an hour. I could have overlooked that if the food had been edible. It wasn't. Not even close. I was embarrassed to have suggested this place to my date.
RUDE – I had been to this place a couple times before so I was prepared for the long wait, and the rude service, even though we were the only ones there, but the food is worth it - usually. We placed our orders and 30 min. later the waitress came back with something completely different. They didn't have what we wanted so instead of telling us they just made something else, and then she demanded we eat it and wouldn't let us order something else.
Torture – It was very busy when we arrived, so we didn't mind waiting for 1/2 hour for a table. However, we did mind waiting another 1/2 hour to order, and an additional hour for the food to arrive (we ordered very simple dishes which should take minutes to prepare). The experience was made all the more excruciating when friends of the staff entered while we were waiting for our food and were served immediately.
Fried calamari was okay, everything else was mediocre at best.
yummie – went for dinner for the first time a few days ago. cozy little restaurant with great food. the plates were simple yet rich in flavor. the mamey fruit shake was delicious! i'm definately gonna go back again to try their other dishes.
Consistently delicious! – I have been going to Fruitlandia for years and it has never disappointed me. Everything is good.
I usually go with one person - we share an entree and get a couple of side. The chile relleno is like no other, the yucca is pefect, the garlic plaintains are scrumptious and the sweet ones are terrific too. The service can be a little slow, but just wave - it's all good. My bill is usually under $20 and my taste bus are always satisfied.
