Great meal first time at Picco Tavern. Both food and service were exceptional. Maitre d' Vincenze and Server Arturo were impressively attentive and accommodating, providing the best overall service experience we've had in a local restaurant in a long time. Food was equally impressive. The meatball appetizer was great. I had the "Leave Your Hat On" entree, which was orechiette pasta (thus the hat) with sausage and cherry peppers in a fennel sauce. My wife had the Grouper special. The best grouper we've tasted since last time we were in Aruba. We moved to the bar area after dinner and enjoyed the entertainment (Julian and Dominique) which was excellent. Highly recommend this place. We certainly will be back.
Good food slow service
We loved this place, great service, great food, great atmosphere and I had a nice Rib Eye for $21
Definitely a wonderful place to have brunch. It has the right mixture of foods that would accommodate anyone's taste and the atmosphere was intimate which made our time spent even better. Great menu for a great price.
This is the second time here. We went to see a band and for Valentine's Day. Food was great and staff very friendly. Michael , the owner, very attentive. We will be back.
As usual it was a very good experience however it was Valentine's Day and we went specifically because they are one of the few places where you can dine and dance. However, I guess because they wanted to put out as many tables as possible they used the dance floor for tables and therefor no dancing so it was a very disappointing evening in that respect - but we have been there many times and will continue to go, just not on Valentines Day.
Food was hit and miss. The grouper was excellent; the duck was overcooked and almost impossible to eat. Service was very poor. The saving grace was the ambience which was fun with live music and an atmosphere that welcomed patrons taking to each other.
Great dinner, great food, fun place. All enjoyed dinner.
Varied menu with decent preparation, good portions. Average wine list, some overpriced even for a restaurant. Entertainmnet was dated, but adequate for the crowd. Large restaurant but still maintained some coziness. Bathroom through glass doors and down a chilly hallway took away a bit. Tripped on the warped floors by the bar ( before I had a drink). Two bars were adequately placed near the entertainment stage with decent amount of seating. However, pricy cocktails without an adequate preparation. Valet parking was great, especially with the cold weather! Kind, helpful staff.
Great place to eat. Valet parking was a plus. Entire staff was attentive and professional. Will definitely return in th future.
Compared to same dishes other resturants..priced a bit higher.
Service was sloppy...wrong drink, entree came before salad....
WHAT WAS MOST UPSETTING WAS ALTHOUGH WE DO LIKE THE PLACE AND ITS VIBE...WE WENT THERE TO SEE ANTHONY AND CLARE THAT NIGHT. BEFORE THE DUO'S SET STARTED YOU COULD SEE ANTHONY PRESENT AT ONE POINT WITH A MIC IN HIS HAD...THE DUO STARTED 8PM WITOUT ANTHONY AND A BACK UP CALLED IN. I WAS INSULTED THAT MANAGEMENT DID NOT MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT WHY ANTHONY HAD LEFT THE BUILDING. TWO STAFF MEMBERS JUST DUSMISSED IT AS "I DON'T KNOW"....NOT ACCEPTABLE AFTER HE WAS ADVERTISED FOR THAT EVENING.
Pico was much better than the previous restaurant I the same location. The food was excellent. They had a Trio singing. Many people were up dancing. You should give it a try.
Place gets better every time we are there. Service is very friendly and timely. Food has always been excellent and the music is always a plus. Did notice less Pasta entrees on the menu this time. Will keep on coming back.
First I want to say it truly is a beautiful place. Loved the inside and the outside appearance. We were seated by the door. It took about 10 minutes to get a waiter and when we did he said he would be with us in a minute. That took another 5 minutes. We had 6:15 reservations and were 1 of 3 tables in the restaurant. So being overly busy was not an excuse. Nothing I hate more than sitting there waiting for service while people that came after us got a waitress right away. When sitting by the door you get the cigarette smoke wafting in from the smokers directly outside the front door. Before we asked to move we ordered our food. They did accommodate our wishes and put us at a table in the back. From start to finish we saw our waiter one more time when he asked us if we wanted desert which we said no to and then he brought us our check. We had to order drinks from the bus boy. Now the food. Our octopus appetizer was very good. Hats off for that. Great job. My zupa de pesce was awful. Very little seafood And what was there was stone cold. My wife ordered the rack of lamb. Cooked well but the "sauce" it came with was as she describe "disgusting". She separated as much as she could of the lamb from the sauce and ate what she could.
I don't believe I would ever go back to give it another try. If either the food or the service were bad then maybe. But a bad waiter and bad food not a chance.
Went for Sunday Brunch. At $24.95, not too expensive for the area, but the service was awful. There were two waiters for 5 tables and we had to ask for water, drinks and coffee (which was cold). Brunch was a buffet, the waiters should have been completely on top of beverages.
We sat outside and had a wonderful meal...The specials came with a nice salad...Great place for dancing and music .
Our first time here went with friends and family enjoyed immensely will go back.
Restaurant had music that was too loud
Food was terrible
Service was not good
Always fun place to be bartender Greg is wonderful the music is great and the food is consistently good.
We went here for our anniversary and were very happy with everything! We ate outside and had a nice appetizer of chicken dumplings. They have a nice wine selection and full bar. I had one of the specials which was pork medallions, eggplant, cheese melted -- it was SO good I told the waitress they should make this a regular item. A good selection of desserts and I must say the prices for everything are reasonable for a higher end place. Valet parking was efficient. It was quite empty when we went (around 6pm on a weeknight) -- we prefer a little more activity but maybe it is more of a weekend/late evening place. But for our purpose it was fine and the rooftop area looks like a great option as well.
Our server Darlene was awesome. Very friendly and exhibited a great balance of checking in on us and giving us space. We ate outside which was our preference. The food and presentation were good, not great. We would definately return.
Great food, service and musical entertainment. Nice to have a classy "nightclub" in Bergen.
My lady and I went for several reasons. First, we both were there before, when it was called “The Restaurant” and we wanted to see what changed. Second, we wanted to include dancing to live music along with our meal. We discovered the ambiance is very good and the dance floor is spacious. They also have a valet service. I understand there is also a rooftop terrace.
We shared the appetizers, Mozzarella Caprese (Fresh Mozzarella, beefsteak tomatoes served with roasted red peppers) and also, the Zuppa di Mussels (Spicy marinara sauce, cherry tomatoes). Our entrees were Grilled Chicken Pillard (Grilled Chicken Breast Served over a Bed of Sautéed Spinach). We substituted Sautéed Broccoli Rabe for the spinach. The 2nd entrée was Cappellini with fresh crab meat Serafino (Jumbo lump crab meat, light tomato sauce) Note: This is a very tasty dish, however, they could’ve been more generous with the crab meat. For dessert, we enjoyed the NY style Cheesecake, washed down with a Cappuccino and some Frangelico.
The service was adequate, but our server was a bit bland and not very proactive. By the way, they also offer an extensive deli menu, including pizzas for dining in or taking out.
Overall, I would absolutely, recommend "the Picco Tavern" for family, friends and occasions. It is a wonderful venue for an evening out. The live entertainment is definitely, a welcomed bonus.
Picco Tavern has come a long way from it's initial opening and is far superior to it's predecessor called The Restaurant. Owner, Michael Monaco is ever present and hovers over the large facility ensuring great service. The food here is better than average & priced reasonably as is the wine list. Two bars, free valet parking, entertainment & dancing most nights makes this a great place to go for a fun evening.
The waitstaff was attentive and the food was delicicious. We live close by so enjoy that we have a great restaurant within walking distance. Our four year old son was with us and danced to the live music. There was a man singing oldies songs and he would also play songs during breaks-and took requests. Overall an excellent time.
This is one of our favorite restaurants but because they lost our reservations, it turned out to be one of our worst dining experiences ever. We made confirmed reservations through Open Table two weeks in advance for this special occasion but when we got there for our 6pm time, the Picco receptionist could find no such reservation. We were held up at the receptionist for over twenty minutes while she tried to trace down the reservation. She could not. She said the restaurant was sold out for the evening but had an undesirable table available for such incidents. Angered and embarrassed, nothing for the rest of the evening seemed to go right. To add insult to injury, the following day Open Table sent me an email admonishing me for not showing up. Unbelievable. Maybe Open Table should be given one star for not assuring the reservation was actually recorded by the restaurant.
Went to celebrate a friend's birthday, just planning on dinner. They ended up having a DJ that night and we had a blast dancing the night away. Older crowd, good music. Will definitely go back. Food and service good too!
Amazing food, outstanding service and wonderful atmosphere
We enjoyed a pleasant dinner with Friends.....we'll be back.
We or in previous incarnations of the place. We come because some friends of ours perform there regularly. Food has improved but it is not great. Nice selection of pizzas and other comfort food.
Our waitress was great and went out of her way to make sure everything was done right. We really appreciated it. Free valet parking. Two bars.
Love everyone from the bartenders to the music/Entertainment.
Food always terrific. Entertainment is best around for those who love when music was music. Best service in all our visits by Valerie who did an amazing job on a typical busy night.
lively bar, great service, entertainment and food have been wonderful the three times I have gone there
Pleasant evening, treated well, food good, nice that valet parking is available.
Friendly staff, attentive manager and delicious food.
Had big expectations after reading reviews. The food was good at best. Nothing out of the ordinary. Would not run back.
This was our 6th visit to this restaurant. We were a party of 5. The food, as usual, was excellent, however the poor, indifferent, inattentive service ruined the evening. This restaurant is wonderfully convenient for us, but we will never return. Too bad!
Great experience but why they need the distracting TV'show on is beyond me. They take away from the great ambience and virtually no one was watching them. On week they should be shut off. However overall a great place to dine, dance and converse.
So happy to have a very good restaurant in the neighborhood. Excellent food, excellent service, and great atmosphere.
