    We have been to Picasso on numerous occasions and always find the food absolutely wonderful. We take friends to eat there and on a nice evening when the wind is just a gentle breeze and the temperatures are tolerable we like to sit outside and watch the people out and about in the Paseo District. This is without doubt our favorite place for meals and drinks in Oklahoma City. If you haven't tried the Italian Lemonade it will be a refreshing delight to you.

  • The Best For Sunday Brunch
    BrettDOkc
    Dined on 9/14/2014
    Picasso on Paseo is our usual place for Sunday brunch. They have a very full menu with extras for Sunday brunch that bring regulars back and impress first-timers. Food is made from scratch in their kitchen. The menu items are unique to Picasso's and have been developed over time. For Sunday brunch The Debris is our favorite. The staff are experienced regulars who are known by customers and know their customers. Very important to us is that they are very familiar with OpenTable, and have honored every reservation that we have made through it. This is a top-rate locally-owned and operated neighborhood gathering place that brings in people from all over OKC because of the food, unique Paseo location, and service.

    that's what I asked myself after one of the best brunch dining experiences EVER - and I'm from one of the restaurant meccas of the US - Houston. i truly can't identify one aspect that I felt needed improvement to better the experience - the ease of seating, especially during a busy dining cycle, the promptness and courtesy of the staff, the varied menu, the quality, presentation and timely arrival of the meal to check clearing was perfect! I can't gush about this place enough!! Oh and we made the reservation via Open Table and indicated, with apologies, that we'd have a 5 month old in tow - while kids certainly can alter the pleasantness of restaurant dining for everyone if unruly - not once were we made to feel unwanted.

    The 85-year-old venue is vibrant and eclectic. My hubby loved the pizza, noting the delicious marinara sauce on his plain-ish pepperoni pie. I've also heard the burger is great. I have many dietary issues, and while the waitress was sympathetic to them, I was not able to get much of a meal because almost everything is pre-seasoned, marinated, or sauced. I ordered the special surf-and-turf (without the surf) and a side salad without dressing. Had to search out the waitress because the salad came out with dressing. I'm not the normal diner, so I understand.The only other critique I have is that the water people were a little over-zealous - interrupting our conversation every two minutes. :)

    I was booking a reservation for a group of visiting friends and Picasso's was my choice because a) you can make a reservation, b) it's in an interesting part of the city, c) the prices are moderate, d) both the wine list and menu are interesting and varied. We had a great meal and a great time. Only complaint is that the music was a little louder than I would prefer.

    We got there a little after 6:00 and there were only a few people eating. By 6:45 the place was getting crowded and the two of us could barley talk to each other over the table. The food was excellent. We had the risotto meatball appetizer - it was excellent! The rest of the dinner was great as well as the New York cheese cake we had for dessert.

    Great find in OKC arts district. Our reservation was early and we were seated quickly by a knowledgable hostess who told our party about a couenof her favorites and one of the chef special flatbreads. Our wait person had to refer to her notes and then go ask. Service was slow throughout the meal. Also, if seated near the back of room be prepared to smell the smoke from outdoor smoking area. Otherwise this was a fantastic meal, great apps and chef's special pizza was incredible!

    This neighborhood gem has an eclectic menu, very good food and reasonable prices. What more could you ask for? I have eaten at Picasso for brunch and for dinner. At prime brunch hour, the huevos rancheros and Bloody Mary were great, but the noise level was pretty high. I returned a week later with a party of 5 for dinner. Among the 5 were some foodies and some with a very restricted palate. Everyone was happy with their food. If you go with a group, try to reserve the big table in the front window--it is almost like a private dining room, and the noise level is much lower.

    I have been in love with Picasso's ever since I first found them, to the point that whenver I am in OKC you will find me there. The food, service, and people are always great. For some patrons the noise level can be a tad bit high, but I feel it speaks to the vibrant/eclectic group of people who dine here. Highly recommend!!!

    The food was very good, however it was the service that I enjoyed so much. We had a waiter, Nathan, I believe. He was just a joy, I absolutely loved his service. He was nice, very friendly, knew the dishes off the top of his head, and just an outstanding worker. I was very pleased to have him wait on us. Other than that, it was our anniversary dinner for three years, the restaurant itself was definitely something different, based out in the Arts District, I can understand why. It was a bit noisy, and the food had nothing to complain about. Overall experience was really good, I was glad to have gone there. A++ to all the employees there.

    I have never been disappointed when coming to Picasso. Food, service, atmosphere...they have it all. As my husband told the chef at the omelet station, we attended a magic show in Eureka Springs....and he was much more entertaining than that was! (No disrespect to Eureka though....it too is one of our favorite places to go!).

    Air conditioning was either completely out or seriously malfunctioning on the evening of our visit. Our Open Table reservation was confirmed, and we were seated immediately at 7PM on a Saturday night. My wife and I both had the blackened shrimp risotto, which was excellent. Service was good, but given given that the restaurant was un-airconditioned on a 100 degree day, I think they should have comped the wine or given us a complimentary dessert.

    The food was delicious, the service was superb the noise level was so high from the bar area that we could not hear our waitress tell us about the nights special. This was our first time and we both had headaches when we left from the noise. We will go back one more time before we wright this of our list of places to eat because we loved the food and service. Also their Key Lime pie was the best we had ever tasted in all of OKC's Restuarant's. We are hoping this was a freak experience on the noise level coming from the bar due to a large party there and the fact the bar and Restuarant is one large open area

    Last night was our first experience with Picasso and it was great. The menu was new and exciting, which I love. The gourmet Mac & Cheese was literally one of the best I have ever had and I tried it in some of the best restaurants around the country. My wife is on a gluten-free diet and the server was very knowledgeable about the menu and the specifics about the gluten. He even went and asked the chef once just to be sure. Great beer selection, good wine list and fun place to enjoy a nice evening.

    Picasso on Paseo is a gem in the rough. An eclectic dining experience, Picasso's is a great way to relax without the hassling of getting patrons through to clear the top. Our party of 6 had a 3:45 PM reservation for lunch/dinner (linner?) We arrived about 5 minutes early and out table was waiting for us, pre-set. after a wonderful meal of vegan/vegetarian and a couple of burgers, we sat and visited, with no hassle whatsoever until 5:30 when the street traffic began to pick up. Manager and waitstaff know exactly how often to come by and when to leave us alone. Great experience, Will be back soon.
