My wife does not stray far from what she already knows but commented that she very much enjoyed the different spice mixtures and combinations of food. Will be back most definately5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent service and food!I went here for my bithday dinner expecting above average Peruvian food. Immediately upon walking in i was greeted by the friendly owners. The restaurant is very well set up, and it appears very upscale. I was very impressed by the choices on the menu and the presentation of the food. The chefs in the kitchen have excellent culinary skills and taste. My faovorite dish was Aji de Gallina(on the special menu). My experiance at Piqueo was an unforgettable culinary experiance5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was really good, althoughFood was really good, although it was Mother's day so full access to the menu was not possible. Have to come back to try it all.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNot your run of the mill restaurantWent for an early Mother's Day dinner. We were not disappointed.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat DinnerPiqueo was a great find, food is unique and well prepared and service was perfect5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding.Love this place, the food, the ambiance. A table visit from the owner is a plus. Can't say enough wonderful things about this restaurant.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, service and variety.Piqueo is an wonderful find. Though out of the way for many, it's worth a drive. The servers and owner were more than just friendly and professional, they were downright thoughtful as they took appropriate pride over their menu.
The menu includes standards familiar to anyone with some exposure to South American cuisine or Spanish Tapas.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit andThis was our first visit and we were impressed. Great food, unique flavors, friendly and informative waiter. Highly recommended !!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA Very Pleasant ExperienceWe were a little hesitant because of the reviews about bad service. On Saturday evening, our waiter, John, was excellent. He was attentive, but did not hover. He knew the menu well and made good suggestions. There were four of us. In addition to a few tapas, we had the Corvina, Tallarin, Paella, and a steak. The sauces were a bit salty, though, which was disappointing. For dessert, we shared the cookies that have a cinnamon caramel in the middle. The cookies themselves were so light and the filling was delicious.The guitarist played the entire three hours we were there. It was a very pleasant experience.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMTruly a neighborhood gemWe eat here at least once a month. We always try new dishes, but you cannot beat the Lomo Saltado. The small plate for $15.00 is all you need. Service may seem to be a little slow, but the culture in South America is different that here in the US. Relax and enjoy the evening. You will not be disappointed.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went on the recommendationWe went on the recommendation of good friends, who are return visitors, so that says something. The food was excellent; the server took time to answer all our questions, was very knowledgeable about the menu, and he made good suggestions. Something that you don't see often is the option for a smaller serving of a menu item for a reduced price, so you don't have to mess with a "doggie bag".
The only wrinkle in the evening was that one guest ordered a "small", received the smaller size meal, but was charged for the normal size. When asked, the server seemed to think the larger size HAD been served. We don't think so, but didn't push it, because it was gone and delicious, whatever the size.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are moving to the areaWe are moving to the area and discovered Piqueo through OpenTable, what a great place! The LOMO SALTADO was VERY flavorful and absolutely delicious! Will be coming back for that one for sure!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food & Great PlaceAs always a great place for dinner with friends. Food is excellent, service is good and you are able to hold a conversation without screaming. We eat here about once a month. When you go you have to get the Loma Saltado. Best meal ever!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMenu offers bi-weekly specialsMenu offers bi-weekly specials in addition to the regular menu. Always inventive and tasty. Exceptional gem for our suburban neighborhood! Chef is always will to add or reduce Peruvian spices to accommodate all palettes.
