The food and service were absolutely fabulous. I heard about this restaurant from Tanji Patton. I highly recommend this restaurant, but have a reservation and check the dress code. We had the seafood tower, lamb, and scallops at our table. The Brussels sprouts were really good as well. They also have a great wine list.
Dinner with friends on a weeknight. Service was great. Not rushed. Calamari appetizer was wonderful.
This is special dining at it's best. I have never been disappointed in a meal here.
It is loud but small and cozy. Great service.
Our meals were very good. Wonderful staff and atmosphere. Looking forward to another visit.
Absolutely amazing restaurant! Would highly recommend! Keep in mind this is high end and is more expensive than your standard place, but well worth it!
The best dining experience ever! The service was outstanding. All food arrived at the same time. We had the red snapper and it was great. We are fans now.
We greatly enjoyed our visit to this restaurant. The only issue we had was my girlfriend's order was messed up and the wrong dish was brought out. This was corrected promptly, which we appreciated.
When my neighbor learned we were in Galveston, he promptly recommended Rudy and Paco's as "our favorite restaurant." He wasn't overstating it. From choreographed service to exceptional Red Snapper, this was the nicest dining experience we've had in decades if not ever.
Make your reservations early -- they book up well in advance, especially on weekends.
The food and people were awesome!
When visiting Galveston, \my wife and I often dine here. Expensive? Yes! Worth the money? Definitely! Periodically we invite friends to take the one hour drive from Houston to join us for dinner and am always confident that the ride is worth it.
As always, everything was fabulous! This great place will never disappoint you...
Exceptional as always
2nd time here. Service and food were on point.
We had a wonderful experience. This was part of our Christmas gift from our children. It was a great choice for a couple to have a night out.
This is my favorite restaurant a 5 star.
Love the food excellent service..
We had a fabulous dinner. Will only eat gulf seafood at Rudy and Paco’s because nobody does it better!
The only drawback is how close the tables are to each other. We also had an extremely loud woman sitting at the table next to us who inhibited our conservation. Not much that can be done about that.
Outstanding as always! Get the crab cake. We truly enjoy this restaurant every time we get to go.
We really enjoyed our snapper entrees and the Quattro leches dessert. Paco sang happy birthday to my husband!
Great place for celebrating our 5th anniversary! Food, services and drinks were outstanding!
Everything about my first dinner here was perfect. Service was superb. Food was unbelievable. Got the 8oz steak and would put it up there with the best steak I've ever had. You can not go wrong coming here for any special occasion.
Met old friends in Galveston for a long weekend. R&P is always on our short list. Our group had oysters (cooked and on the half shell), shrimp, redfish and steak. All were outstanding. Service is impeccable. Wine list is extensive. This is NOT casual dining. It is a dining experience. Collars and long pants required for men.
Awesome experience. We drove from Beaumont, about 70 miles just to eat here. It is well worth it. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The food was the best I've ever had.
We had a wonderful time celebrating a special occasion with some of our close friends. Service was excellent. Food was exceptional. Great time.
Rudy and Paco's is one of our favorite restaurants in Galveston. You need reservations and make them long in advance if you want to try them on any evening when there is a show at The Grand, which is next door. The specials are always great and if they offer Grouper, try it!!!
Excellent food and outstanding service.
Can't wait to go back. Food and service was excellent.
Great place for dinner before a show at Galveston’s 1894 Opera House.
They are very accommodating of those going to a show and pace the meal perfectly to fit your schedule.
Always excellent food and service. Team presentation style is fun.
All of the food was fantastic! The drinks were good, but pricey!
Service, by Aliona, and food was extraordinary, as usual! I truly delightful experience!
Rudy and Paco's is consistently good. The food is delicious and the service is outstanding!
There is such a good variety on the menu and good wines, too.
Always fantastic - I love that you can have a conversation without being drowned out by music!
We only come in once a year, but it is always great! Almost like a private speakeasy club from the 1920’s.
Spectacular food and service!! My wife and I will be back.
Went their for my anniversary checked three times before we got there to eat. That a special desert for our anniversary would be made. Bt it never came so it really ruined my whole evening that I had planned for our anniversary. And it seemed that our server paid attention to everyone bit us.
Everything about the restaurant, including ambience, service and food were excellent as they were the first time we were there.
This was our 49th anniversary and I had left a request in the comment section when I first requested our reservation via OpenTable. The request was for Thursday 2/22/18 for 7:30. My comment was to ask for a quiet table which was not near the kitchen or any cleanup area.
Upon entering the staff directed us to a table which was literally outside the door of the kitchen. There were a lot of tables all around the restaurant where we could have been seated so this was very disappointing because of my specific request. This tells me that my comment was not acknowledged or ignored.
I requested another location and was accommodated without any fan fair.
I only send this comment to encourage that whatever caused the situation could be remedied in the future for other guests.
We try us enjoy Rudy and Paco and will return in the future.

Absolutely would dine there again. Food was amazing and service was outstanding. Highly recommend Rudy and Paco Restaurant!!
A great, romantic dinner for our 28th wedding anniversary. From the greeting by the hostess at the door, to the perfect service by the waiter, to the owners attention to details, everything was amazing. My wife had the snapper simpatico which she enjoyed immensely. I had what most would consider a waste at such a nice restaurant; fried shrimp. However, these were huge, delicious, perfectly prepared shrimp. Go for the food, stay for the magnificent service!
Awesome seafood dishes. Their pecan crusted snapper was amazing. Service was outstanding. Absolutely one of the best places to eat in Texas.
