We really enjoy Publico and like taking friends there that haven’t been before. The menu is fun and the food delicious. A great choice if you are looking for something unique. Prepared in a wood burning oven. The staff is friendly and attentive.

Wonderful meal experience! Fully recommend to anyone. Service was outstanding. Food was unique, well prepared, oddly tiny portions. Same thing for the drinks. Don't skip the sweetbreads - fabulous!

This place is typically one of our go-to spots but it was very uneven on V-day. Guac arepas were magical as usual, but octopus was slimy and squash was tough. Brisket tacos were great again as a go-to. Tried the Nashville hot chicken taco & the prevailing flavor was salt. Lots & lots of salt. Drinks were good, dessert was good. Just not our best experience there but still a good place.

This place is absolutely incredible. Everything is cooked over an open flame, which adds quite a bit to the flavor. Everything is delicious, and they have hands down the best fish taco you’ll ever eat.

This was our first visit to Publico and our server did an excellent job of explaining the menu and providing recommendations. The three of us shared multiple dishes and everything was excellent. Portions are tapas sized and meant to be shared. We were allowed to linger and catch up, which was greatly appreciated since we were meeting a friend from out of town. While we were lingering staff brought over a pork dish that they were experimenting with for us to try. Great food and a great experience.
