First time. Great atmosphere, the lighting was a little too dark, hard to read the menu. The Grouper portion could have been maybe a little bit more for the value. The Ribeye was perfect and was plenty of food. Overall, very nice place and warm.
Awesome seafood dishes. Their pecan crusted snapper was amazing. Service was outstanding. Absolutely one of the best places to eat in Texas.
Very friendly service, food was the best, I have never had scallops that melt in your mouth...delicious! Everything was amazing, and we completely enjoyed our evening.
Reservations a must! Quickly seated with a reservation. Great food. Amazing Service. Yummy cocktails. A little noisy and crowded but that's what happens at the best restaurant in Galveston.
Amazing food! Excellent service. So good we returned the next night. Best seafood ever. Eating here is an opportunity of a lifetime.
Great food and great service. Cannot complain. Will be dining again in the future.
My husband & I had our date night and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The wait staff was great and very friendly. The owner came by our table to check on us. We both loved our meal and felt the prices were reasonable. The restaurant is very nice but not stuffy! Will definitely go back.
Wonderful food and exceptional.wine value.
It was a nice restaurant, the waitress was very polite and the food was excellent. I had a special request for a dozen red roses , I was very pleased with the arrangement of flowers and so was my wife. The whole experience was perfect . I will be going back there again .
They have earned repeat customers with their delicious food and great service.
The food is AMAZING and so are the workers. Best of eberything. Can't wait to go back.
Paco always does an amazing job. The food and the service cannot be beat by any restaurant anywhere!
Consistently wonderful - Galveston Island’s go to Fave for Special Occasions!
No doubt a 5 star restaurant and one of the 100 best in USA as advertised worthy of Michelin consideration outstanding service that occurs unnoticed great wine list at less than expected cost
By far excellent service! Will definitely need to return. Thank you!
Rudy & Paco's is consistently fabulous in food, service, wine, and a great atmosphere. This is Galveston’s gem!
Always so good it's worth the trip from Houston for R&P alone. Food so consistently good and service so fine, should be on everyone's top restaurant list!
We live 4 hours away, but make the drive to Rudy & Paco’s for any and all reasons we can find. The empanadas alone are worth it. You can’t beat the quality and presentation of what is some of the freshest and most delicious food you’ll find anywhere. (My personal favorite after filling up on more than my equal share of empanadas is the KT Delicias; it’s light but still fillIng. My normally-meat-and-potatoes-kind-of-guy husband almost always orders one of the daily specials and has yet to be disappointed.) Those who know and appreciate dining etiquette will especially enjoy the service. It’s a long lost art (at least in my area) that Rudy & Paco’s has certainly revived and perfected. And, don’t be surprised to find the owners mingling with customers. They want ensure you have the best dining experience possible, and do a pretty great job of it!
Best place in Galveston to eat hands down. Best service and quality food. Paco and his daughter are amazing hosts and always make me feel welcome!
We love going here for special occasions as well as casual dung at the bar.. our favorite is always the fresh red snapper prepared so many delicious ways.
We were in town for a conference and a local recommended this place. With 2,000+ positive reviews on Open Table figured we couldn't go wrong. The dinner was amazing and service (pleasantly) surprisingly formal. Escargot, grouper special and snapper and crab cake were all great! Bread pudding desert delicious!
There isn’t a finer restaurant in Texas and the staff is always amazing
Very nice experience for the two of us on our wedding anniversary. We were a few minutes early for our reservation and able to have our table. Service was awesome and the food very tasty. Would recommend this place to friends and family.
Phenomenal service and food. We were very proud to take our out of state guests.
A reservation is a must. We arrived and waited about 15 minutes before our table was ready, but loved sitting at the bar and visiting with friends. Super friendly bartender. The food was awesome and will go again. Great dining experience!!!
Terrific service and great food. Our server Alex set the bar for servers everywhere. Mr. Paco, the owner was a continual presence doing everything from greeting patrons, pouring drinks to setting tables and wiping down seats. The food was superb.
I had been to Rudy & Paco's at lunchtime in December and when our anniversary came up in January I wanted to go back there and we had a great meal, great service, great atmosphere. My husband and I were able to split a dinner for a small fee, and we couldn't eat all we had, even splitting the meal. They brought out an anniversary cake for our special dessert. I loved how the wait staff was so polite, even when the restaurant was so very busy! I would highly recommend Rudy & Paco's for special occasions! Thanks for the experience!
I took my grand daughter and my wife to lunch for her birthday. I've had both lunch and dinners there before. Over all it was a great experience. I do have a critique of the food we ordered. My wife's Salmon salad was great and my grad daughters Grouper tacos were good too. The calamari were lost in the overly sweet salad mix. It could have been anything in with the porcini pepper, red bell pepper, pickle mixture. My shrimp in a butter garlic sauce were tough and rubbery, probably from over cooking.
My friends and I decided to try a new restaurant and we LOVED everything about Rudy & Paco's. They have every foreseeable detail planned out to the letter. We plan on being regulars at this fantastic restaurant. Thank you for the perfect restaurant experience!!
