A fun evening!

Our 2 couple group had a wonderful evening. The soft shelled crabs were delicious, as was the red snapper. We loved the margaritas! Our server was very friendly and attentive. We enjoyed the Mexican duo as well. We will definitely be back when we visit Houston!

Great new menu and selections, and attentive service. We went on a busy lunch day and service was still great. Fresh food. Try it and enjoy.

We went here with family while we were visiting. It has an extensive menu, very well prepared, authentic Mexican cuisine. Attentive service was a real plus. Very popular as it was full when we arrived and still full when we left!

My cousin from California hosted a brunch for her son's graduation at Pico's. They provided a room for us from 10:30 to 1:00 on a Saturday. The service and food were excellent. The servants were very attentive.

Pico's is by far one of the best MEXICAN restaurants in Houston. This is NOT a Tex Mex restaurant and the menu reflects the various regions of Mexico and their culinary specialties. The location is a new and there may be a few small details that need to be corrected but the food is superb. Try the Mole Negro Chicken... More

Went to eat with my family last Sunday morning, they charge 30 dollars for a brunch, that doesn't include any soft drink, you have to pay separately for your own orange juice, brunch very poor variety. We sat at the bar area, the bartender was very unattended and seen to be he doesn't want to be there. Never talked to... More

I'm sorry but we are having a hard time believing that you did not enjoy your experience. You come in to enjoy drinks at our bar normally on Sunday afternoons. We know this because the bartenders remember you and what you drink (Michelob Ultra) and already have it ready for you when you sit down. You know how much the... More

The food was great. Soft shelled crabs were wonderful. You need to call ahead and order them or you might not get them. It was way too loud. You could only have a conversation with the person next to you.

I have been to Pico's several times and have always had an amazing experience. The wait staff and bartenders are friendly, attentive and know how to make great drinks. They have over a dozen different kinds of margaritas. I have had several different margaritas and they were all great. They have their own brand of Herradura tequila which is exclusive... More

This was my first time at Arnoldo Richard's Pico's Seven Regions of Mexican Cusine and I will definitely be back next time I'm in the area. Went there for a late lunch/early dinner.
