No shorts (men or women), hats/caps, or sleeveless shirts for men. Men are required to wear a collared shirt.
Great service, and good food. Our server was very informative and provided excellent service. The staff seem on point with synchronized service. I wasn’t too fond of the dips with plantain chips nor the ceviche. My 22oz ribeye was perfectly charred and medium rare throughout. Scallops that came with special were a little dry. Good wine list but no vintages listed. Also, another server delivered my cocktail and the luxardo cherry dripped juice on the white table cloth. Small details but great night overall and would definitely return.
Fabulous as always.
The red snapper was great. The empanadas are very tasty. The ambiance was very pleasant.
Paco was as always very personable.
Great!! Nicest restaurant I've been to in a decade. Service was second to none.
Great food and service. We always enjoy coming here when in Galveston. The romantic atmosphere of the restaurant makes it easy to have a nice conversation. Everything we ordered from the ceviche and salad to the scallops and bread pudding was fantastic. The wait staff was attentive and very professional. Really a top notch restaurant in Galveston.
Always the best dining experience
We love Rudy & Paco's. We celebrated my birthday and my brother-in-law's birthday and it was awesome as always! So glad that Paco was there to give me a big hug and make our lunch extra special. Thank you!
Consistently remarkable food and service.
You will find every snapper dish outstanding, one of the best Ceasar salads you will ever eat and insanely delicious bread pudding. Worth the visit!!
We went for our anniversary and it was awesome. The service was impeccable and the steak was amazing.
Thoroughly enjoyed my first visit to Rudy & Paco's. It was as good as I had read about and based on what people had said about it. Franco(Frank), our server, was awesome! Everything aspect of the meal was perfect. Excellent wine list and outstanding cocktails. A truly enjoyable evening and I will definitely be back!
Great as always.
We always enjoy going to Rudy & Paco Restaurant when we are in Galveston. The food and services are as good there as any restaurant we have ever gone to, and we have traveled all over the world and enjoy eating in fine restaurants. We have been there numerous times, and the restaurant quality and service are very consistent!!! Always GREAT!!! Thanks very much to the owners and their staff. We will return in May!!!
We always love Rudy and Paco’s before the theatre shows and for special occasions ! We always have a wonderful dinner and service is always wonderful ! Paco comes by and greets everyone and is present with his customers !
ALWAYS delicious food served with attentiveness and caring !
I drive from Dallas to visit my favorite Galveston restaurant!
Excellent service with great attention to all the details. The coordinated service to multiple guests at the same table is an example of the attention to detail. Staff is very professional and friendly. Good quality and value of food.
Very nice experience. Great seafood, great service. Destination restaurant on the island.
A great intimate spot for special occasions. Impeccable service and outstanding food. I especially loved the scallops Marsala.
I've been coming here for years. Love it. It is worth the experience!! Thank you.
Paco always provides exemplary service and outstanding food. We have never been disappointed with any dish we have ordered. The mojito was fantastic.
Awesome service, great food!, romantic atmosphere, we will be back, maybe with friends. It was fun to watch how they served everyone in a party at the same time, even a party of 14!
My favorite place to come too! The food and drinks are always amazing. Big shout out to Becca for the amazing service.
It was our first visit. The food was AMAZING !!! The service was impeccable. We will definitely come again!!!
SO romantic & perfect for our anniversary! Service is impressive & food is AMAZING!!! We LOVED IT! Extensive wine list! Perfect for any impressive dinner date!
The service is always excellent and friendly. The crab cake appetizer is stocked full of lump crabmeat and very large. A meal in itself. We love the Parmesan crusted grouper that comes with a pineapple salsa with crunchy cabbage...perfect amount of crunch and sweetness. These tacos come with crab bisque that is delicious and creamy. Very nice lunch menu and special items.
Every time we come o Galveston we come here. It is a masterclass in cooking and service. Best steak of the year and I eat a lot of good steak! Rudy and Pacos is still the king!!!!!!!
Great food, excellent service but far too expensive for what we got.
We have never had a bad meal out experience at Rudy and Paco’s. Every dish was delicious and the service was excellent.
Paco and crew are a class act. We always feel right at home when dining there. The atmosphere is great!
Just an all around fantastic restaurant. Will drive down to Galveston for a night just to dine there again.
The plantain encrusted snapper is amazing
food and service were amazing.
a table beside us had a touch of attitude.
overall we can't wait to go back.
Rudy & Paco is our favorite place to eat in Galveston. Paco stopped by our table to welcome us.
Hands down the most wonderful dining experience we've had a long, long time. The service is exceptional, the food is nothing short of amazing and we love the intimate setting. I cannot recommend this place enough!
This is by far the classiest restaurant in Galveston. Paco's sister restaurant Vargas Cut and Catch is across the street and I can't wait to dine there. I am sure the service will be as great as Rudy and Pacos. I did have a drink at the beautiful bar there before dining at R and P's. The service is the absolute best. They deliver your drinks at the same time, you food at the same time and they pick up your plates at the same time. Just A one. And the food is outstanding as well. Many many seafood choices to pick from. And Paco, the owner, will visit your table for sure. Happy New Year!
Great service (Thank you, Rebecca), great dinner special, great wine list. Perfect night with my wife.
Eight of us dined. Most of the orders were correct. One item was left off, but was fairly compensated. Lamb chops were tough and full of grissel
I don’t remember other restaurant where I had received better service. It was really and excellent service. The food was fantastic. I strongly recommend this restaurant.
This was my second time dining at R I gave it to my friend to try. I didn’t even say anything and they agreed the slaw was way too sweet. They separated out the fish and didn’t eat the slaw or tortillas. Just a bit of honest feedback here. Rethink the slaw and it could be outstanding.
Food and staff is always impressive
