Still amazing Margs. Always an attraction. Food however has lost some of its flair. Used to be amazing, now just good. The atmosphere in the restaurant is good, but increased prices at the new venue, and only good food, will not attract us there a often as great food would. Will return, but likely less frequently. A shame but this... More

We liked this place so much when visiting Houston recently, that we went there for dinner one night and returned again the next afternoon for lunch! The drinks were very refreshing and homemade. My husband and I enjoyed soup and quesadilla with delicious margaritas for dinner. We liked the atmosphere as well. We came back the next day for lunch... More

My experience at Pico's was extraordinary. The atmosphere, food and staff were all exceptional. So exceptional in fact that while visiting Texas over the holidays I ate at Picos 3 times and each time was impressed. My favorite dish and one definitely not to be miss was the Lubina Chilena from the north pacific coast region. Broiled Chilean sea bass... More

First of all, Houston is known for their excellent Mexican and Tex-Mex food. We have some of the best food in the nation. Some of the restaurants that I feel are excellent and are a good value are Sylvia's Enchilada Kitchen, Pappasitos, El Tiempo, Hugo's, Maria Selma, La Mexicana, Chuy's and too many more to mention. I won't go into... More

Prices a little high for portion and food variety. Went here for lunch and paid $12 for soup. The rest of our party ordered the botana and the portions were small for the price. Taste was overall ok but not very authentic mexican flavors.

Pico's was an excellent experience all around. The food was as described, the service was attentive, and there were subtle touches (like table side purse racks) that out it over the top!

Our second visit to Pico's. The first we sat at the bar and had appetizers. Good but pricey. We went to dinner and the food was good but not exceptional. I had Chile Rellenos with to much sauce. The sauce was sweet and tasted like it should be on spaghetti. The service was terrible. The waiter kept disappearing. We each... More

Sat at the bar to enjoy the view!! All staff very friendly and efficient. Had Jumbo Gulf shrimp sautéed in olive oil infused with pasilla peppers and garlic as an appetizer. A little spicy for me but delicious. For dinner it was Enchiladas de Tejas- Fresh corn tortillas filled with your choice of shredded chicken, ground beef picadillo or Chihuahua... More

Used to go to old location on Bellaire Blvd, good food but sketchy neighborhood. New location much nicer, taken food up a notch, but service could be improved. Seafood particularly good.

Cordial, friendly and helpful wait staff. We enjoyed our experience. The prices for margaritas are especially expensive $11-14. We had four margarita specials for $8 each. Still, $32 for four lunch drinks is noticeable. Our bill for four entrees, four drinks and two desserts was $127. The food was good and I think I tasted a hint of flavor not... More
