About the restaurant
Inspired by memory, shaped by place.

(Bar) Hermanito is a bar-forward, open-air neighborhood Mexican restaurant in the heart of Sawtelle.

Simple, fresh food built around housemade Sonoran style tortillas.

New and classic Mexican cocktails with subtle nods to the neighborhood; Japanese heritage.

Ambience is fantastic, service is impeccable. Food portions are small, but solid. My one issue is that there is a 5% service charge independent of the tip that they add afterwards according to the menu, claiming that it is for health insurance for their employees — just include it in the price of the food, don’t add on an extra charge.

Great little place. We had a big party and the service was a bit inconsistent, but overall we got everything we ordered and the food was great. They have a lot of unique and traditional dishes you can't find other places.

We had a great night at Vida as always! There was one hiccup with one of the tacos and our server went above and beyond to make it right. We will be back!

Food was outstanding aside from the empanadas. Drinks were superb . Joaquin was excellent and very helpful. Crowd was a bit too damn loud at times. Everything is very well run - can tell the management knows what they’re doing and is hiring well. Happy loreto is part of the neighborhood. Thankful for the patio covering in this rain too!
