Picasso on Paseo Ratings and Reviews
Met up with friends for brunch. Ordered the baked eggs. Came out dry and not edible. Egg yolks were crumbly. Replaced with apologies and no charge for the item. Love going to this place. Sunday brunch is busy. But kitchen should not have let this plate go out to the floor. Other items ordered were as expected- wonderful! Will return! A favorite place for getting together with friends.
Jeremiah was awesome host. Good was spectacular. The gravy on the pan fried chicken was as good as my grandmother's and the chicken firecracker lollipops we're so good I could have eaten 50 of them. My wife salad was outstanding. There was absolutely not one thing to complain about. Great Sunday evening meal before we went to the Civic Center Theater.
I love this place. I work around the corner and eat here frequently.
And I still brought my mom here for her 80th birthday.
I knew she would love it and feel special. And both were true.
I feel like I’m home and out of town at the same time every single time.
Good food and good service! Our party was taken care of and there were no issues on our tab, etc. Note, we were seated close to the front of the restaurant which had a large window and good view. However, I believe a diner started smoking right outside in the patio area and you could smell the cigarette smoke from where we were all sitting. Fortunately, this happened during the last part of our dinner and we still had a pleasant experience.
Was a holiday and many restaurants were closed. They were very busy. We had a reservation but arrived about 30 min early and had to wait (understandable). The food was good and our server was excellent. Noise level was very high but the place was full primarily of younger people and they were having a good time. I mean they have a bar section adjacent to the dining area so noise should be expected. Anyway I would go back.
We have always loved Picasso for brunch. However, they have taken my wife's and daughter's favorite dish off the menu. The dishes they have replaced it with are sub par. Waiter was very scattered and was not listening to anything we said. Very disappointing, not sure we will go back after it being a regular brunch spot for us.
I brought a vegetarian friend from Florida to dinner. I loved that there were so many "classic Oklahoma" things I could introduce her too. The Bar Tender (Brian) was very friendly and helpful--- plus his special, local drink was delicious. We had a great time and would recommend it!
The service and food was excellent. We discovered the private room was going to be too warm and asked to be moved. They accommodated our request even though it came at a very busy time. Our experience was fantastic. We will definitely be back and will suggest our friends go to this great local restaurant too!!
My wife came to OKC for celebrating a birthday and I selected Café Picasso via a search on the internet and the reviews. We had an excellent diner and when my dish was not exactly as I requested, they changed it for the right one with a smile, after I already had started eating. The service could not have been better. There was a lot of mostly young people and therefore, it was pretty noisy. Not a big issue.
Picasso's has great food and atmosphere. A friend recently adopted a vegan lifestyle and she loved the options available. The menu was able to please a vegan, vegetarian,and avid meat eater. Service was great even though Friday nights in Paseo can be a bit hectic.
The presentation was wonderful but the chicken & avocado sandwich was so thick (tall) I couldn't get it in my mouth & had to eat it with a fork & knife. The chicken was bland & had no seasoning. I'm sure the bourbon honey mustard would have added some flavor but it soaked into the bun which I didn't eat since I had to use a knife & fork. The slaw looked great but was ruined by a spicy seasoning (who makes coleslaw spicy??!). The server was very accommodating & brought me an order of fries instead. The dessert was the biggest surprise of all. It was frozen rock hard & was quite literally impossible to eat, so we got it to go & let it thaw out in the 90-something degree heat of our car while we went to an art show.
I was in town to spend time with family. We selected Picasso for its varied menu as we have all types of diets in our family. I made a reservation and the table was ready when we arrived. The service was outstanding. We were taken care of and checked on as needed.
I had the blackened shrimp risotto and thought it was delicious. We tried the fried jalapenos and Trio for appetizers and enjoyed them.
Loved the food and will go back (the next time I'm in town) because there are so many more menu items I would like to try.
My only issue is the noise level. It was almost unbearable making it very hard to talk to others at table. The acoustics need to be revamped. There was a large group of about 30-40 people (2 long tables) across from us that were very loud so that may have added to it.
Great first time! My husband and I are trying to venture out in okc and this is one place we enjoyed! Pretty hip and comfy fit all ages! And saw anywhere from young family all the way to old couples! Started out quiet but became alive after a while which was great! My food was great, got the shrimp rissoto and the shrimp is amazing!! A few hard bites in the risotto hence the 4 stars but I ended up finishing my plate! Service was great!
Picasso has long been a favorite of ours, and recent remodeling had made it more appealing visually. Lighter colored walls make it airier and friendlier. Same great food prepared by chefs who seek to please diners rather than themselves. Staff have genuine interest in making the experience genuinely satisfying.
Ok. Food was generally good for three of the four in our party. The fourth person's chef special ribeye that he ordered medium rare was well done. He didn't send it back. Service was well-meaning but honestly pretty sketchy. Waiter seemed really stressed and scattered. We had to keep reminding and asking him for obvious things. And the hostess forgot to acknowledge that we arrived for our OpenTable reservation, so I got a "no-show" email once I got home which was irritating. Oh well. Not sure we'll go back.
I came to OKC for new job training and had few expectations as far as dining and culture. As a self-proclaimed Foodie I was extremely impressed and pleasantly suprised by Picasso Cafe on Paseo. Located in the art district of OKC, the atmosphere was eclectic and yet comfortable. There were various seating options: tables, a lounge/sitting area, as well as bar seating. In addition to having a service dog friendly patio, you can find patrons of every age and background, from small children to senior citizens, from hippies to hipsters. Our server Jeremiah was extremely knowledgeable about all of the menu items, was open and honest about making sure we knew what exactly we would be getting. My only issue was that the menu was so amazingly fantastic, that it took longer than usual to decide on my meal. Luckily, each of my two friends ordered something different and we were each able to try something different. We started with Fried Goat cheese with arugula and local honey, fried risotto balls with marinara, and fried salmon spring rolls. The Goat cheese was the hit of our "shared plate" items. For dinner I had Tacos by the sea with Ahi tuna, napa cabbage and a marvelous aioli sauce. One friend had the grilled shrimp with mushroom risotto, also fantastic! The other friend went with the evening special, a marinated ribeye with cinnamon chimichurri, sauteed yellow squash and zucchini, and a loaded baked potato. The steak, prepared medium rare, just as she had requested absolutely melted in your mouth! I would recommend anyone in OKC to make it a point to visit Picasso Cafe!
