Great food and service
Good service. Smaller Venue so doesn’t feel too crazy busy or loud even when it is full.
Always a fantastic experience regarding drinks, food and service!!! Had dinner on NYE and per usual everything was excellent. Shout out to our attentive and friendly server, Jairo O! Been enjoying PICOS since it’s past Bellaire location. Great atmosphere to boot! Love this restaurant and my favorite hot sauce ever.
The food was amazing love it
For sure I’ll be back soon !!
I like Picos alot. This one is so pretty and wonderful food. We had great service.
Love this place
I've eaten at Pico's many times. This time I would say our service was very average. Maybe just post holiday stress.
If you’re open for business, you should be prepared to serve customers. It was a very disappointing experience after 25 minutes I had to get up and go find someone to wait on us. In all that time we had no water or drink orders taken. That was after waiting on our table in the bar area and having to go to the bar and order drinks and bring them to the table myself.
This is the first time ever having such poor service on a special evening very disappointing. We usually love going to Pico’s
Great as usual. This was our 30th year to do family dinner on Christmas Eve at Pico's
I've enjoyed the sumptuous cuisine and fine folks of Pico's for 25+ years, and a visit here is the first request for our grown children in from the East Coast.
Good food and drinks.
Very much enjoyed the evening with the strolling musicians (guitar and harp). The food was delicious.
Not happy with the way we were treated from the moment we arrived. The employees they have working the check in area need lots of training on how to properly communicate with customers. They ignored us, didnt have eye contact with us....told us the table was not ready....and left us just standing there.
The food and the service from the wait staff was good....no complaints there....but the time to get the food was not acceptable. The appetizers came quick....we thought we were in for a great meal....but after that....it took an hour to get our entrees.
It seemed that managment was not worried at all.....almost like, you'll get your food when you get it.
We've been here before and received great service from the beginning to the end....and really good food too....but this time.....we only received good service from our waiter and good food....everything else was lacking.
Our server Leo was just terrible. Got our queso and waited 10 minutes to get our chips. He basically forgot about us the entire evening. No hurry to go back
Love the high ceilings and décor, the wait service was friendly and helpful in explaining the Day Specials, and the selections available, the Shrimp Brochette was excellent, all six of us loved the food and ambiance and will be back to try other dishes
Food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. AC
Considering the selection of the brunch menu, I find it difficult to justify the $36/person charge. I understand the location is centralized and the cost for the monthly rent must be substantial, but perhaps trimming some of the staff maybe the answer?
Food was good but didn’t get what I ordered - serious language issues- finally got my drink at end of meal (it was melting so probably forgot)
Food, as always, was very good. Server was very diligent, but seemed disorganized. I ordered a margarita with salt. Didn’t think he heard me...it is very loud there...so, I repeated it twice. Came out with no salt. It was easily remedied. My wife ordered a side of queso for her tacos al carbon, specifically said that. They brought it as first appetizer. And, please.....bigger water glasses. Otherwise, great meal!
Excellent food, best margaritas in town, and fantastic service
Great all around !!!
Maggie Service awesome !!
We enjoyed the margaritas. However when a friend ordered a glass of wine, it was about 4 oz. she got up and went to the bar and the bartender added more. We had to ask for more water which was difficult since we couldn’t find our waiter for several minutes. We got separate checks and three out of the five checks were wrong. The biggest thing was the noise level. When we got outside, one of my friends said, “I felt like I was yelling the whole time in there!” I said, “Because we were.” Nobody dislikes their food but also nobody said, “This is great! Ya’ll have to try it.”
We are a group of friends that have know each other for years. We started a “supper club” a few years back so we could see each other more on a regular basis. We try to meet once a month and so far, we usually make about 10 months out of the year. This experience we enjoyed the least and I’d say it was because of the noise. If we were able to chat and laugh as we usually do without such an effort to hear, empty water glasses and mixed up checks wouldn’t have matter.
I am always very satisfied when I eat at Picos. The service and quality of the food are excellent.
Very loud restaurant. Table was in the walkway and service was slow. Food was okay but nothing great. Will not go back again.
First time here—-so disappointed I waited so long to cone here!!!! Fabulous in all facets: food, music, atmosphere, service. Cant wait to try other menu items
You can count on the food and service it never disappoints. And the tequila menu is outstanding.
Most items were fresh, paella was dry, service was. UST and a bit slow.
The food was delicious and the service was great.
Service was slower than usual even though we went early and the restaurant wasn’t crowded. We had small kids along, and their food came out quickly, but they were finished eating long before the adult orders came out. The pork rib dish wasn’t very good. El Tiempo’s ribs are much better.
We really enjoyed watching the Astros game at the bar tonight. The food was delicious and the service was great.
Hector is a professional and great waiter .
Always a wonderful time at Picos...from the staff, drinks to the food...simply great!
Great service and great food make me keep coming back.
There were three of us on Friday, Oct 3, 2019. Waiter recommended a main course that was not eatable for one of us. Waiter didn’t come and ask whether our food was ok. He failed to notice that appetizer was not eaten and main course was also not touched. When he brought the bill I said that one of us couldn’t eat the main course as the meat was simply disgusting. Waiter asked whether we wanted to take it home... unbelievable
Meat dish looked awful and wasn’t cooked properly. We also had an octopus. Two legs of the octopus were ok, one had a funky smell. Ceviche is huge there and mixed with other stuff - very little raw fish and fish is not that great - big chunks. We won’t be back. Paid over $100 for there people plus tip. Really?
Enjoy the restaurant being a little quieter than their competitors and the tables being further apart so conducive to conversation. Chips are warm and love the roasted flavor in the salsa.
Best Mexican food I have ever had. Authentic with live music, amazing service, and a even better price
Buen lugar para comer auténtica comida mexicana.
This was our fourth time dining here, it was my wife’s birthday dinner. She ordered Fish which very dry and I had grilled shrimp, also just OK. Previously I have had the bacon wrapped shrimp which always excellent, but perhaps anything wrapped in bacon would be?
The service was really tentative, I think it may have been a new waiter?
So we will not be so eager to rush back
A fabulous Sunday brunch buffet! We celebrated a family birthday in style!
Food and drink were great! Service was a bit off. Multiple servers and had to keep tracking one down.
Family dinner. Been here before and knew dinner would be great. Our family is from GDL, MTY, Filipino, and good ole Texas. Be back soon!
