 (San Francisco)·Dined 3 days ago

First things first. I dine at the bar of Picco often. I enjoy a good cocktail and small bites with excellent service. So, when a close friend of mine called and asked if we should go to Picco and celebrate my birthday, I thought--sure! Let's do it! Only to be sadly disappointed without any mention of my birthday. I have been places where a special little dessert is brought to the table with a candle...or at least, a happy birthday.

It was nice to be with friends and enjoy one another's company. I'll probably stick with the appetizers and cocktails.

Picco is always "top shelf" for food & ambiance, but they need to train their bus staff to attend to water refills...really!

trying too much, too many unfortunate combinations gets you lost in a salad with way too many nuts and too few beads for a beads salad or an entre plate with hard pork meat...

Pretty disappointing evening. We were seated in the cramped, dull back room right next to a table of very loud millenials, who showed no sense that they were in a restaurant with other people nearby. The reservation should indicate that you're getting 2nd class citizen seating instead of the main room.
My wife had the special fish, which was a tiny piece of cod for north of $35. My pasta was fine.
Our waitress did a good job.
All in all it was a mediocre at best dining experience at premium prices. No need to return.

The food was delicious, but the service really spoiled the evening. Dishes came out one at a time, with one of the sides being the fist and only dish that appeared. As we were planning on sharing all the dishes, this made for a strange experience. And this was after we confirmed with the waiter that we wanted everything together. Also slow to order drinks after seating, and long interval with empty glasses with no checking to see if we wanted another. We skipped desert and coffee.

One of the best restaurants in Marin. Great seafood and pasta dishes with risotto made on the half hour. Expect small dishes to share. Ahi tuna was fantastic as well as the avocado toast.

Disappointing after waiting so long to get a reservation. We had to wait 15 min to be seated in a crowded bar with no room to enjoy a drink while waiting. Food just correct, nothing spectacular considering the price per dish. Nice, cozy place, terribly loud and with a poor service. Definitely, not at the level of expectations.

This place was incredible! For a short trip to get out of the city, I was shocked to find some of the best italian food I've had in a long time! The sausage gnocchi was out of this world and the avocado bruschetta was a real treat! The service was attentive and accommodating. We'll likely even travel from the city to come back!

All around great. Great menu. Our waitress suggested sharing and we shared both small and large plates. Every dish was amazing. We were four and could not decide which of the 6-7 dishes we ordered were the best. Some great dishes we ordered were the octopus, the risotto, the gnocchi, the salmon.

Don't miss this place- just go!!
