Food is always great here. After waiting 35+ minutes after ordering, I asked the server what was going on as I had never waited that long before. She told me that there had been a problem with our order and that somehow only one of our two dinners were noted so that started both again. They offered us complimentary desserts, and when we declined dessert, they took $5 off each entree. Next time it would be best to inform diners when/if a problem arises and a delay occurs.

Found this place by random and decided to stop by because I’ve never had Peruvian food. So glad I did! The food was incredible. We tried the ceviche, scallops, yuccas, and pallea. It was all incredible. Pair that with some of the best sangria I’ve had and a fantastic flan to finish and you can be assured that I will be back here. Amazing experience. You won’t regret dining here.

All the food came at once which diminished the enjoyment of the very well prepared dishes. The menu has many interesting plates. I would have liked it to be a little more sophisticated than the neighborhood joint that it is. We might have lingered longer if that had been the case. I think the chef deserves diners to savor his food!

Reviews/ awards indicated that this would be a good spot for our reunion dinner. Piqueo's staff & food exceeded their online reputation. Was worth Venturing out of downtown. Will return.

My husband and I absolutely love Piqueos! We used to eat here when we lived in California, and now we return every time we're in town. It is absolutely delicious!

Everything at Piqueo's is fantastic. Favorites tonight were the Taquenos, the pork ribs and the fried mushrooms, but all the dishes were unique and flavorful. Desserts were amazing - quinoa flan, suspiro and passion fruit Panama cotta. How can you go wrong? We love taking out of town guests here. So different!

We absolutely loved the experience at this restaurant! We sat close to the open kitchen and could watch them make the food. All of the food we had was great but the lamb & the Humita Dulce were our favorite!

I've been going to the restaurant since they opened. They raised prices on menu a lot especially ceviche ; ) They started to push Plantain chips on all ceviche orders. If you say "YES," there will be additional $6 charge. This restaurant was a bit expensive than other Peruvian restaurnats in SF before but now it a lot more expensive than the others. I had some issues with their two glasses of red wine last time. I am not sure if it is worth going back there again.

Family visiting from Denmark had one evening for a special dinner before leaving the bay area for Yosemite so we picked Piqueos to share a special meal and were not disappointed. Everything met or exceeded expectations and our visiting family hope for a repeat when they visit again.

Very tasty and interesting dishes, we would definitely go back and try other tapas. Our daughter was recently in Peru and felt the inspired dishes really hit the mark

First time here. Didn't get much help with ordering a balanced meal. Everything was over sauced and over cooked.

The food was great. Peruvian flavors were abundant throughout each selection but definitely a fusion cuisine. We had an early dinner and the service was excellent. It was the weekend so had to try the weekend paella. Wasn't disappointed! The Mac and Cheese was a surprise hit. Only regret was there were so many other menu items didn't get to try.

Working my way through the menu visit by visit: Pork adobo is wonderful, Paella is some of the best I have had, and this last visit had the Churrasco (pictured) amazing steak and fries with chimichurri from heaven!
