Padrecito-March 08, 2013-453.jpg

Padrecito is a seasonal, and we think sensational mexican restaurant in the heart of San Francisco’s Cole Valley neighborhood.



At Padrecito we strive to create a community atmosphere while serving prideful culinary creations and libations utilizing ingredients that meet our ideals.  Many of these ingredients come from our sister farm in Sonoma, Oak Hill Farm while others come from small purveyors and farmers.  At the core of our offering is a homage to original Mexican dishes made from scratch each day.  House made tortillas and salsas create the foundation for our ever seasonal menu. While unique and carefully crafted ceviches, enchiladas and tacos have become our house staples.

We hope to see you here and hope you enjoy what we love creating everyday.

Handcrafted always


Our Cocktails

Carefully crafted and paired to walk in stride with our culinary offerings and philosophy. We search out hand crafted and boutique distilleries that meet our production ideals and the tradition of the tahona process, one of the oldest, most labor-intensive ways to make tequila. These agave based spirits create the base of our cocktail menu while bourbon, rum and other spirits make a tasteful appearance.

In an effort to eliminate plastic we have decided to go straw less with the majority of our cocktails, and have  replaced our plastic with recyclable paper straws upon request.

If a walk-in table is unavailable we will add you to our in-person walk-in list. We will give you an approximate quote and seat you as fast as possible.  Non peak nights and times often have minimal to no wait times and there is always the bar for a drink or botana while you wait.
