Good food, decent service, but too noisy for comfortable conversation on Saturday afternoon before the ballet.

Great pre-theater restaurant
I always go to Peso's before I go to the Rep Theater. They usually have space and the food and atmosphere are good. Kind out loud for an intimate conversion. Great Margaritas.

Loud music keeps me away
I live a few blocks from Peso's. I have found each time I've gone that the food is really terrific, and the house margaritas are amazing, fresh and strong. I wish management would put some thought into the musical selections and volume. Weekend evenings are particularly geared toward the bar crowd. Tonight I went with a friend. When we walked in, around 8:20 the music was at a reasonable volume, so we went in. At 9 it is clear that the volume (of bad classic rock/disco/nondescript bar music) gets cranked up in order to...what? Get hormones going? Get people to believe they're having fun? I don't know. I will only go again for happy hour (fabulous) or early dinners on week nights.

Food is much better than you
Food is much better than you might expect from what is basically a "pick-up joint" (is that term still even used anymore?). Décor and service are quite good and as mentioned, the menu is interesting and flavorful.

Great birthday evening!
We have been to Pesos a lot for brunch but never for dinner. We had a fabulous time. We noted on our reservation that it was my wife's birthday but no one offered a Happy Birthday from the staff or a drink or dessert like other restaurants tend to. We would still return for brunch anytime!

When we arrived, early, for
When we arrived, early, for our reservation, we were informed that they didn't take reservations on "event" nights (The Eagles were performing at near by Key Arena) and were told that there would be nearly an hour wait. Even though we had a reservation that we made with Open Table. We had to inquire about the situation three times before they made it right. Service was friendly and the food was great.

We had reservations for 6 pm on the night of The Eagles concert. Upon arriving we discovered that they would not be able to seat us at 6. There had been a mixup (apparently they don't accept reservations the night of concerts). They promised to seat us as quickly as possible and that we would have priority. We eventually scored some seats in the bar and ate our meal there. The food was great, but the evening could have been a disaster.

This place is always fresh and doesn't shy from spicy. I've since moved away from Seattle and have to go back each time I'm in town. The ambience is sort of Dia de Los Muertos in an upscale kind of way, and I'm always happy I came. The chips and salsa they bring out to start is really great. Good drinks, too.

Fun atmosphere, was a bit more sporty and less dance-y since it was after a seahawks game.
Waitress was very friendly. Enjoyed the food. Drinks were mediocre (ordered a vodka martini - weak and watery, and a red sangria - too sweet and also weak/watery)

Seattle Restaurant Week
We went to Peso's for Seattle Restaurant Week. So delicious!! Service was a little slow but they were busy. Food was perfect. Would definitely go back for happy hour too.
