My hubby and I had a date night on Saturday. I had read the reviews for Pucquio and made reservations. Our reservations were for the Chef's counter. The chef is talented (both of them) and they were graciously answered our questions. The menu is fabulous, staff is warm and inviting...can't wait to go back to try other menu options.

Awesome food and service. Really accommodating and cerviche and mains were really tremendous. Portion size was bigger than expected and picked a ton of flavor. Would absolutely recommend.

One of the very top restaurants in the Oakland/Berkeley Bay Area. The freshest, best hand-made Peruvian food available. This is the Chez Panisse of Peruvian restaurants. It takes a little longer to get your food because each dish is hand-made. An experience not to be missed. Enjoy!

Amazing people and every dish was seasoned and cooked to perfection. They made me and my partner feel extremely well taken care of even though they had no idea we were celebrating a spice level occasion. The whole fried fish dish is well worth it and the pork belly is also amazing. Worth every penny.

Overall it was a fine experience. I was however really hoping to have Pescado Saltado. The portions were fine, except for the ceviche. For the price, I'd have expected a larger portion. I was also disappointed they didn't have a liquor license as I was really hoping to have a Pisco Sour. Also, the bathroom is a little hike away and not on premise, so you have to go outside which was unfortunate to the overall dining experience. The service was great and the entire staff lovely. Its a small place, and I really love Peruvian food, so I'll likely go back. I love that they are a family restaurant and I really hope they do well.

Food was great and unusual. It felt like a family kitchen: very welcoming and eager to help diners unfamiliar (as we were) with the cuisine. In future, we will take out, however, because the tables are packed in, there is only one waiter, and the noise level made it stressful to have a conversation.

Pucquio is the best restaurant in Oakland. The food is impeccable, every single time -- from the ceviche to the main courses. The presentation and food quality are always outstanding -- with flavors you honestly wish you could just keep eating! The service is always great - small restaurant, with just a handful of tables and a very attentive staff. We LOVE this restaurant!

Food is amazing and chefs are friendly. Service is leisurely which is nice to just have a long slow dinner. Only complaint is that we made a reservation for 7 but did not get seated until 7:20, which negates the whole purpose of a reservation.

We went here for my wife’s birthday and absolutely loved our meal, which was cooked perfectly. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly as well. The restaurant is very small, so quiet personal conversations may be limited but it also gives it an almost cozy atmosphere where where you may make friends with the table next to you. We will definitely be back, we want to sit at the counter next time!

We love this place. Low key and informal with amazing food. Sit at the chef’s counter; laugh and share stores with the owners and enjoy amazing food. The ceviche, the lomo Saltado, the mixed salad (served on watermelon), and the yucca fries never disappoint.

We come here every year on our anniversary and are never disappointed. The food is delicious and unusual and the chef and staff always make us feel like honored guests and friends. We like to sit at the counter, and every time we've done that we wind up talking to other folks who are as dazzled by the whole experience as we are.
