Experience was great. When we got there we got champagne waiting for us as it was our anniversary and it was a really nice touch. The food was amazing the service great and will definitely come back for another date.

The food was very good and the service was even better. We had an early reservation and were seated in a back room. We were the first ones seated so it was nice to enjoy the while having a conversation. The cost was a bit pricey but we would return because overall experience was 4+ Star.

Sometimes you just want to go someplace and chat over great wine and great food, not being rushed, but being attended to. That's exactly what we got. The food was excellent, and the share plates were easily adjusted to meet our party's needs. We hadn't been there in awhile, but we'll be back soon!

Wondeful food and service, however sitting in the back room can get very loud, especially when there is a private party in the middle room. There should be a door on that room, as it tends to get very loud. Second time this has happened to us sitting in the back.

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.
