I'm so sorry to say the food was awful. The ceviche was extremely salty. The potatoes in the papas huancaina were hard. The eggs were runny in the middle. Drenched in sauce.

We asked for some bread before our meal - 10 minutes later they brought us cold, stale bread slices.

The lomo saltado was ok. Also overly salty and not very generous with the meat. A small bowl of sticky rice to go with the lomo is $4.00.

I was so looking forward to trying this restaurant. Sadly, we left very disappointed.

Beautiful setting, the most amazing food, but was a little confused. The website allowed me to book a 915 dinner but when we arrived the door had the closed sign on it, peering into the glass entrance, someone opened the door to allow us in. In letting them know their closed sign was up they told us that the kitchen was closing in less than 5 minutes. So although the food was divine and the service we did receive was attentive it was a rushed experience, didn't get a chance to really look at the menu with rushing to decide. A little shame. Wouldn't miss this little gem, just make your table booking for a tad earlier :)

Very tasty and creative cuisine. Brought my mom here for Mother's Day but thought it would be ideal for dinner dates with friends. Loved the Peruvian flare with hints of Japanese. The paella had uni stirred within and was delicious! Ceviche topped with fried calamari - great! But the crispy duck in blend of hominy and resoto in green sauce topped it all - Mad Good! I started with this oaxacan (named) cocktail that was fizzy, smoky (peety) and fruity which I really enjoyed. Mom seemed happy too people watching. Parking was a bit of a trick but liked the cafe's facade in bold deep red.

We enjoyed trying Picca for the first time. The ambiance is cozy, clean and well-lit. Friendly service. We love the glazed beets and most of the creative dishes on the menu. We would recommend Picca to foodies and to everyone.

The overall experience was lacking. If you book make sure they seat you downstairs... Upstairs no one cares about you and the service is terrible as they rarely come up there to check on you. I don't see myself going back there especially as the food wasn't near good enough

Food we loved -- the pumpkin quinoa stew with fried egg; beets with burrata; skirt steak
Food we liked - tuna ceviche
Food we didn't like - tres leches cake - too soggy and too sweet; black cod - was almost still swimming so texture was way off

Limited wine list. Wish there were some CA wines on it! No Japanese whiskey - missing the mark there!

Noise level like most 'warehouse' style restaurants was loud making it difficult to converse.

Very annoying: In small red print that was hard to see on menu - 3% surcharge for 'employees benefits.' PLEASE stop with the political/social statements - raise the prices by 3% and take care of your employees without comment.

We popped in for dinner because it was a good location for the group and we loved it. The Black Cod was one of the best fish dishes I've ever had. The cocktails were excellent as well.

Every dish we ordered were delicious and burst with flavor. Offers on the menu were versatile and you can please different palettes. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the cuisine and made good recommendations. Even the server was polite and attentive. However, since it was tapas style, portions were small, which was great, though the pricing was entree style :(
Rack of lamb was tasty, but a little on the greasy side. However, overall good experience and quality services.

Used to be one of my very favorite places but this time it felt like the kitchen was cutting budget .... the meat dishes were stingy and the garnishes took over the actual dish....the service was good but the food was not as good as what we were used to get here. We paid 600 dollars for a group of 6 with two kids and did not get our money's worth.

Of the 4 choices we ate, 2 were very good, the lamb ribs and the ceviche. The pulpo was too much Serrano sauce, the paella was very wet rice and seafood was not seasoned enough. The waiter was very condescending saying "you made the right choice". Maybe because she sees 2 older asian ladies in casual clothes who just came from a spa. We are foodies, tech executives who traveled all our lives. My 30 year daughter recommended this place and I told her it was a disappointment. The tables for 2 were so close to each other, you hear the conversations of your next table so easily in spite of the whole noisy ambiance. I will let my friends know as well and my second daughters friends who all love to eat great food.

The food and service were great. However, it's very noisy and I found that the difficulty having a conversation detracted from my overall experience. I was there on a Saturday night - maybe a weeknight would be better. Although it was delicious, I probably won't return because of the noise level.

Had a terrible experience at the door. The hostess had apparently given away our table for 2 at 7:43PM since our reservation was at 730PM. She agreed to give us a table but only if we left by 830. It was my friend's birthday. I accepted that option after asking for the manager and the hostess told us that there was no manager present tonight (Monday). At 830PM half the tables were still empty. We felt rushed throughout our meal. Our waitress and the rest of the staff were great. The food was also good. This why I am still giving most stars for the review. The experience at a restaurant starts with the hostess. She was not friendly at all. Please try to be more respectful of your guests going forward. Very disappointing.

Despite having made a reservation a week in advance, they only offered bar type seating. It wasn't very comfortable and it felt like we were tucked away in a corner, so we probably won't come back. Nothing wrong with the food or service, though.
