Diner Reviews
  • "Very interesting ingredients combinations. The ingredients seemed very fresh although it is unclear if which are local, if any, and sustainable and or organic. Excellent flavor and taste of the seafood dishes we tried. One of the two hosts didn't know the ingredients of the dishes."

  • "Wine by the glass is pricey, but we enjoyed all of the tapas we ordered: scallops, short ribs, a meat-stuffed relleno, and ahi tuna in a sweet and sour sauce spiked with jalapeno. I loved all the sauces and wished there was some kind of bread to sop them up with. But Peruvians love potatoes more than bread, so had to do the best I could and overcome my desire to lick the plate! It was a packed and noisy Friday night. Kind of ridiculous to have music playing on top of the loud voices (which probably get louder because of the music!) Although tables are very close together, our "neighbors" were very nice and shared their appreciation of their selections. They also were a bit taken aback by the din, but suffered gladly with each bite."

  • "I just went to dinner at Piqueos on Thursday night with two friends who had never been there before. We ordered 4 different tapas dishes that were so delicious. We also ordered two desserts - the chocolate lava cake and the passion fruit panna cota and loved each of those as well. They both mentioned how much they loved the little restaurant and its food. For my family and I, it is definitely our favorite restaurant in the city!"

  • "This is the quintessential great neighborhood restaurant. Tiny and charming. A refreshingly different menu with a small, very well chosen wine & spirit list. Everything we ordered had lots of flavor. Overall great food although the pork was a bit over cooked and the sweet pepper a bit hard. Oh, and their Latin music selection was excellent (non of the loud, obnoxious "salsa")."

  • "Service was great, just about everything we ordered was really good, but the $450 price tag was a bit higher than expected. I get it, it's SF prices, but it still seemed a bit high for what we actually consumed. Wouldn't make this my "spot" but certainly a 2x/month treat."

  • "We made a reservation through OpenTable and when we arrived the restaurant told us it was in their system for 15 minutes later. Not a big deal but sort of strange. We went for a walk and came back and were then seated in what appears to be a back deck with makeshift walls, a heating lamp and none of the ambience that the real restaurant possesses. It also smells like mildew in the back room. So, that was really disappointing. Food was tasty but that back room is not suitable in the current condition for diners expecting to be in the restaurant."

  • "Our waiter was awesome, even shared photos of his pregnant wife with us. He was also Peruvian so that was a big help for us, as we have had very little Peruvian dining. The food was delicious! You have got to try the beef heart and duck paella! The beef heart comes on a skewer with this awesome creole-Peruvian BBQ sauce and the paella comes with a whole (big too) duck leg... The rice was super duper tasty. I'm a pretty picky dude too... Type of guy that doesn't like his cranberry touching his mashed potatoes and gravy on Thanksgiving. I would recommend this place for a group of 2 - 4."

  • "Sometimes it's easy to overlook how good a restaurant is just because it's reliably good! Piqueo's is a little loud and the tables are a little cramped, but the food is really excellent and delicious and the service friendly and helpful. Lucky Bernal Heights residents to have this terrific restaurant in their 'hood!"

  • "small dining area, with seats pretty close to each other; however, even when full, the restaurant felt intimate, not crowded. I definitely wouldn't try bringing a large group or stroller though. food was absolutely delectable. baby octopus was chewy without being rubbery, which is hard for many places to get right. lamb was tender and flavorful, and the desserts were a nice surprise -- not merely generic afterthoughts. even at peak hour the lava cake didn't take the advertised 15 minutes, and was worth the wait. would definitely come back to try more dishes, as we had a wonderful date night."

  • "Piqueo's serves excellent food. I just love the tuna tartar and the lomo saltado. This time the lomo saltado was a bit cold (or at least the fries on top) which made it a little bit less great as previous times. But still good. Service was ok but not great. We ordered a glass of white wine with the starter and the Ribera del Duero (which is excellent by the way) with the entree. Obviously we were expecting the Ribera del Duero to be opened and ready for the entree it wasn't however and we had to remind the waiter. So the bottle was opened just before serving which is not ideal for this wine. But all in all it was ok."

  • "Food was very good, but the place was noisy and stuffy even though we were seated next to an open window. Ventilation needs a LOT of work. We came out smelling like the food. Paella was memorable."

  • "My boyfriend and I had a perfect date. The sangria was delicious with the added touch of sparkling wine. We split some appetizers including the wontons and one of the salads. Afterwards, we had the Lomo Saltado as the main dish, which we highly recommend for those who like red meat. The service was attentive and not overbearing, which is how I like it. We will be back!"

  • "We had a great time at Piqueos. It is one of our favorite restaurants in the city. After moving to the Peninsula a few years back, we haven't had a chance to go in a while, so we were curious to see how it had changed. The Chinese-inspired Ceviche was amazing and I would highly recommend it (get 3!!). The humita dulce and the carne empanadas were also very good. We would not order the short ribs again - the flavors were too dull after having the fun combinations on the other dishes. The wine was also excellent. The tables were a bit too close together for my taste, but that is par for course in the city and most SF-natives wouldn't even notice a problem. Definitely check it out."

  • "The service is good and most of the food is good. The platano chips were a bit burnt and the tuna tartare had too much guacamole. Sometime the wait is a bit long in between getting plates to the table. Never offered a second cup of coffee."

  • "Piqueos was recommended by the AirBnB owners where we stayed and so we thought we'd give it a try. You don't get much Peruvian food in New Zealand! The staff were lovely and the food was delicious. We tried some of the tapas and the entrees and everyone said their food was wonderful. Would highly recommend."
