First we have been before and loved the food. That said, we decided to go for Valentine’s Day dinner. For starters, we were not told that it would be fixed price when we made the reservation. We were surprised to see this when we arrived but decided to go ahead and stay for the very high price tag of $60 per person before beverages. When the food arrived it was mediocre at best, and the service was almost nonexistent. When it was there it was greatly lacking. She didn’t even ask if Iwe wanted another drink when she took our empty glasses. The table next to us had been waiting 45 minutes for chips and salsa. The fact that we know how good it can be made the experience even more disappointing. It was also kind of typical of what’s happened to San Francisco. $150 for a mediocre dinner for two in Bernal Heights. Very disappointing.

Peruvian with chinese influence on the menu, unfortunately missed on the dishes we had. Chino Ceviche - Sweet chili sauce was way too sweet, no balance in the dish. Pulpito was fresh and potatoes well executed. Lomo Saltado was good. Overall, good but not worth the prices, better food and value across the street at Red Hill Station.

Excellent food. Came here for a birthday dinner with a small group of friends. Really loved the cozy atmosphere and delicious tapas. Favorites were black squid ink paella, sautéed baby octopus and fresh ceviche. Was able to bring my own bottle of red wine to dinner which really enhanced the dining experience. A great find for SF dining especially on a busy Saturday night.

This was a great find. It's a small neighborhood spot, the food is excellent. Everything came out fresh, hot and delicious. The sauces especially were great. We ordered paella as our entree which has to be done very well to be worthwhile. It was delicious. Highly recommended.

We used to come here often, and absolutely loved everything about it. The ambiance, the service, and most importantly, the food was consistently delicious! Tonight was an epic fail. Not sure if they switched owners, or what, but something was definitely off. The music was obnoxious, the service was slow, and the food was not good. One dish was under cooked, another was over cooked...the fish in the ceviche was chewy... just gross. Also, it seems as though they raised the prices... Hoping this was just an off night. We’ll give them one more shot...

It was a little noisy for such a tiny place. But once the loud crowd left, it was nice to have our date together. The service, food, and interiors are always a treat for us.

My new favorite Peruvian restaurant. Two kinds of paella. Tapas and entrees.

Cannot believe Zagat published such a positive review on a restaurant that lacks food and service quality.

We were a party of six and shared several of the tapas. They were all delicious and brought to our table with perfect timing. We never felt rushed, but never had to wait for the next servings. I have never been to South America but if Piqueos is any indication of cuisine in Peru, I'd sure love to go.

Great for a date night; cozy spot in Bernal with great drinks, food, and waitstaff. Definitely way too expensive to frequent on a regular basis though.

Good seafood, although the sauces were a bit heavy. Nice selection of South American wines. Fast, good service. Overall, a solid local restaurant with a good vibe.

We've been there 3 times and ordered the same dishes and each time 5 stars, but this time the same items were far from the previous two visits. The stuffed avocado tastes like day old crunch chicken, which wasn't appetizing, the paella that touted chorizo had a basic anduille or brats instead. Not appealing and was supposed to be the weekend special. The should use real Spanish chorizo.

I'll try it again, and hopefully it's back to the way it was then first two times.

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!
