Service was sub par at best. Very disappointing.
Tables are in top of each other as well.

I don't get the hype. This place was underwhelming. Biggest redeeming factor is the service. The wait staff was engaging, helpful, attentive, and professional. The rest was average.

Started with the 'beet salad'. It's NOT a salad. It's a roll of beets with goat cheese between each beet wheel. It was good but not what you would expect.

Next we shared the foie gras. Typically this dish is spreadable and served with some sort of bread. Not here. It's patty like and served with plantains. It was also good but not the level you expect from a place like this.

Finally we had the sea bass. It's cooked with the skin which was supposed to give it a crunch according to the waiter but instead it made it very oily. I peeled it off and ate it without the skin.

Overall the meal was not memorable. For being rated as highly as it was, we expected more. We ate at marmalade tonight and it is not even comparable. Disappointed in the food but the wait staff made it a pleasant experience. For the money there are better options.

One other thing I found odd and a bit off-putting. Not one fish option was local. Every fish was from another geography. No local flavors or sourcing.

My husband and i went on a date at pikayo on our last night in Puerto Rico while my mother watched our kids. All i can say was our food and virgin cocktails were incredibly divine, nothing else in Puerto rico that we ate came close to this good, of course. We had looked forward to the famed puerto Rican foods, going so far as to watch food network shows with Anthony bordain and andrew Zimmermann on their trips to the different cuisine highlights on the island, but we didn't find that the local offerings from the cayey lechoneras to the luquillo kiosk mofongos to blow our minds.
Thank God for Pikayo! I ordered the potato and truffle soup which was absolutely incredible-i had to eat it so slowly as each bite was intensely savory and complex. I was still marveling at the flavors and creamyness down to the last streaks of color in my bowl, I also ordered the four jumbo shrimp. My husband ordered the puerto rican tasting menu and shared some bites with me, the beef stew stack had intense flavor, the Mofongo was incredibly original and packed a wake up call of freshness. We also got virgin mojitos and a pinacoloda, they were well priced and the best we ever had. Consider the pinacoloada a dessert, I savored it in the same way I did my soup...blissfully mediating on every sip. The atmosphere was classy and upscale, the volume level was quite nice, enough background noise to make conversation private without needing to speak loudly across the table.
I cannot recommend pikayo enough, clearly, they use pure, fresh, local and real ingredients whereas many other restaurants are sourcing imported, premixed or low quality fare which translates to bland, uneventful flavors. Pikayo was one of the best highlights of our trip, and the best food we ate in Puerto rico. The prices are reasonable for the stellar quality and service. My husband and i drank at least 2-3 liters of water due to the instant refilling vigil of one of our three or four waiters. Wow, what an experience!
