Diner Reviews
  • "Truly exceptional service and outstanding food. Sit on the patio for a fanastic dining experience. You'd swear you're in some Tuscan cafe, under the trees."

  • "Pretzel was great...sauces not. Salad was good...lobster bisque runny. "Stroganoff" was WAY over mushroomed...not edible to even a mushroom lover."

  • "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 love coming here a few times a month. I stick to the same things because I'm picky but the hubby usually has the special and is always impressed!"

  • "We were looking for a last minute dinner stop and Picasso delivered. Great food and service. It's quite the happening place."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The food here is wonderful. If you come here in the summer months, dress very lightly as their air conditioner is awful. Otherwise, this place is amazing!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The yummy food is unlike any other place in OKC with a diverse selection. It is great to go with a group and "share bites" so as to try more of the menu. I have enjoyed everything I have tried. The atmosphere is very avant garde' and artsy which enhances the dining experience."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "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."

  • "We were looking for a change from our usual the other evening. Based upon the OpenTable 4 1/2 star cusomter rating, we decided to give Picasso a try. The food was superb. The building is old and a little worn, but otherwise acceptable. The staff was nice, friendly, and professional. We enjoyed the 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."

  • "My wife & I ventured out to the Paseo district to enjoy a later Saturday evening dinner at Picasso's. We were lucky enough to get outdoor seating on the front patio on a glorious spring evening. The blacked shrimp and the beef tenderloin were marvelous and our server, David was marvelous - there when we needed him, but not hovering over us all the time. My only concerns: about dusk, we had several groups (one 3 times) ride their motorcycles down the street, revving motors(not much the restaurant can do about this); and a group of 12 more than slightly inebriated patrons were at the end of the patio who were much more concerned about their good times than any other patrons. when most of them left, the evening was much more enjoyable."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Very pleasant staff. The food excellently and elegantly prepared. Even though we dined on patio, the food was delivered hot. Amazing experience. Will return very soon!"

  • "Since finding Picasso on Paseo we have enjoyed many lunches and evening dinners here. The food is always great, the service is wonderful, and the ambience is so relaxing and enjoyable. Feels like we are at a friends house visiting and getting a wonderful meal. The wine list is very good and we try something new each time. We will spend many years continuing to come here and enjoy ourselves. We always bring visitors to our city to Picasso for a taste of the good life we enjoy all the time."

  • "Really.....I've been waiting for this. I have sent 3 emails to OPen Table and have had no response. Still waiting to hear after many emails. We made this reservation and got to restaurant and there was a sign on door...CLOSED...it was a Thunder game night which means all places are busy...we were so very disappointed. There was an arts show the weekend before so they closed. I would have thought they would coordinate their schedule with Open Table. After 3 stops at different restaurants were were finally able to get a table and eat quickly. Why would this happen?? Would think you would be on same schedule. Very disappointed!!"

  • "My wife and I commonly eat here on Fridays (date night) when her parents have our baby. We always end up getting the same appetizer. Upon seeing the chef at our last visit, I thanked him for keeping them on the menu and making them available all the time. Beyond that the entrees are the stuff of dreams. "

  • "To celebrate Mother's Day we decided to take my Mother to brunch at Picasso on Paseo. We had reservations for 12:45 and still had no table until 1:15. In my opinion it was not a big deal since it was mothers day I anticipated it taking a little longer. The food is great at Picasso, we had been here for dinner several times (GET WHITE QUESO!!), but never for brunch. The brunch was delicious and reasonably priced. Overall I really like this charming restaurant."

  • "My husband and I found this spot online and decided to give it a try. Indoors was a bit noisy so we sat outdoors. We ordered seared tuna and a pasta dish. Both were outstanding, fresh with big flavor. We'll definitely be back."

  • "First time at this restaurant. Positives: good food, vibrant bar area, interesting/eclectic style. Negatives: too loud inside, too hot inside. An advance reservation netted me a cramped, worn out booth three feet from the hostess stand and sandwiched between pass through into the bar and a group of about 15 that were all hollering and talking at once. While the food was good, I probably won't hurry back as I don't like to have to eat outside to be able to have a conversation or to avoid sweating through my shirt."

  • "Picasso on Paseo had a great selection of food and drinks. The atmosphere was very ejoyable, and the waitstaff was wonderful. Our food arrived in a timely manner and was perfect! My guest said it was one of the best restaurants she'd eaten at, and I agree. What a great little find in the area."

  • "Picasso on Paseo was wonderfully eclectic atmosphere. We were immediately seated. Our waiter, David, was attentive without being overbearing. I had pasta dish made with pesto, mushrooms and sun dried tomatos. My niece had Pan Seared Airline Chicken and she said was yummy. Debie had blacken shrimp with risotto that looked beautiful. The prosciutto blue cheese wrapped dates and Buffalo, Buffalo, Buffalo appetizers were delicious and tasty. Loved our drink special with gin and earl grey tea. Light and refreshing and I would suggest Picasso's put on drink menu. David had us out of there at 7:25 pm in perfect time to drive to the Civic Center for the symphony performance.  "

  • "Made a res with open table for Easter brunch for 6- 2 of which are 80 years old. Restauranr was busy and when our table was ready we found we were going to be at a tall table in the bar- noisy and uncomfortable for our group. When I spoke to the hostess, she was very understanding and gracious and allowed us to have a private room. We had to wait a little longer but it was worth it!"

  • "We arrived later than our reserved time and they were still able to accomodate our party. Additionally, the service was friendly and well-timed. We were able to eat without feeling rushed. The food was very good and the portions were large. I appreciate their willingness to allow me a half-size salad so I could enjoy it along with my meal. Dessert was yummmmmmmmmy, too! Thanks, guys!"

  • ". Once seated I was a little concerned how close the tables were together, but as it turned out it was just fine, In fact, after eating struck up a convo with the diners next to us. We started with the seared tuna served on a bed of arugula with a brilliant dressing. For the entrees we had the scallops and Mac and Cheese. The scallops were as good as any I've had, with a tasty puree. The M/C was totally different from any I've had, but good...I just wouldn't have called it mac & cheese. Served with a very large pasta noodle and shredded chicken. , It really turned out to be a very good meal and not overly expensive. Smallish wine list,, good service, pleasant atmosphere, neat little bar...all in all a very fun place. I'll be back."
