We celebrate the good life at Buena Vida Cantina!

A vibrant and lively space with hand painted murals from local SF artists, an extensive Agave collection of Tequilas and Mezcals along with delicious margaritas made from the freshest California fruits combined with Executive Chef Erik Hopfinger’s culinary direction highlighting Mexico’s culturally diverse history by combining a variety of regional flavors, traditional spices and only the highest quality hand picked ingredients.

Each dish, each spirit and cocktail we prepare is made with the passion we have for celebrating the ‘Good Life’.. Won’t you join us?

We specialize in private and semi- private events including corporate luncheons & dinners, wedding & cocktail receptions, after work gatherings, or any type of occasion for groups from 15-150. Our spacious Main Dining Room and modern Parklets offer unique and enticing locations to hold your special event. Buyouts of our entire restaurant are also available. Our goal is to provide you with our warm and passionate dedication to service and bona fide hospitality to create a memorable experience.
