Picasso on Paseo Ratings and Reviews
White queso is the best I've ever tasted and it's not even a Mexican restaurant. I've had the Picasso burger and fish & chips and they were both delicious. My wife is a vegetarian and she loves this place. Lots of vegetarian options. Prices are very fair. Dessert menu changes regularly. Most recent visit was Valentine's Day and they had a gluten free chocolate buzz cake and a pistachio cheesecake. Seriously. Go there now.
My wife and I ate at Picasso for Valentine's Day. They did not pack us in like sardines, plenty of room and quiet night. My wife had the salmon, I ate the Airline chicken plate. Wonderful chocolate dessert with coffee. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu.
We came here to celebrate a birthday. I have been here several times before with no issues, but this last experience will make me think twice before reserving a table again. The service was poor, waitress forgot drinks then the guest of honor's meal was given away to another table. There was no offer of a comp until I asked. The worst part was being asked to leave after we ate. The waitress said she needed our table for another reservation and gave a 15 minute warning. There were several other tables open so it wasn't like it was packed. I have never had this happen at any restaurant, even when i haven't made a reservation. Needless to say this restaurant is being removed from the list.
I have eaten at Picasso's many times over the years and the food and service has been consistently good. I have been with a group from work and with friends. This time I made a reservation as it was at brunch time on Sunday. No problem - we were seated immediately - and they were busy! Plenty of brunch options, too.
The food was average. We ordered the white queso with chorizo, which was quite tasty but very heavy on the stomach. We also had the fried goat cheese which was delicious. For entrees, we ordered the airplane chicken with risotto. The chicken was perfectly cooked but the flavor was just average. The texture of the risotto was the best I've experienced since moving back from Italy, but the flavor was overpowered by the oregano used. The last entree was the fish and chips. The fries were perfectly seasoned and cooked, but the cod, while cooked perfectly, had the breading over-seasoned and once again, it overpowered the fish. The tarter sauce was also very strong. Overall the meal was average but for the price I expected better. The spices used overpowered most of the food and was out of balance.
Food is always the best part about Picasso. Thee EUA something about this place that servers ar whist not the rockstars you would find at other local places. They have several vegan and gluten free options and the menu offers a wide variety of options for all tastes.
We'd been planning to go to Picasso on Paseo for some time, and finally got the chance. Good choice, although it's more of an arts bar than expected. Excellent menu, although the OpenTable menu is out-of-date, and the one on the website for the restaurant is experiencing PDF errors. The blackened shrimp risotto is perfect in execution, and the portion size is appropriate. Another in our party tried the spaghettini, clearly house made, with a big dollop of burratta in the middle. Also great portion control. In fact, dinner costs less than some lunches. Service was friendly but perhaps too intrusive, although that's way better than the server who disappears until the check is due. Definitely a go-back place.
The food is usually so great. However, my food was not very hot at all this time, so I was very disappointed. The latte was room temp and my biscuits were starting to get stale. The flavors were great and it would have been wonderful had the temperature been warmer. It appeared my plate sat while the other meals were prepared.
