Real nice plating, great food, not great atmosphere (looks like a refurbished old mexican take-out restaurant). Redoing the interior would give this restaurant a major kick up. Service was good also. Not crowded.

My wife and I tried to get here once a month. Even though I try to select different things from the menu I am constantly driven back to their scallops. The food presentation and the atmosphere of the restaurant are impeccable. I encourage you to go here if you would like to go to a place that serves gourmet food... More

This visit we changed things. I had the Enchilada Acupolco, my wife's favorite menu item, and she had the crab cakes. The enchilada has wild shrimp, crab cakes, and more. It is a favorite of many guests. I have played the field, since I like all the menu items, but this evening I went to the well. Also the restaurant... More

We recently stopped for lunch with an out of town guest, and had a tasty, interesting and different-than-usual lunch time experience. All three of us enjoyed our entree--fish with a Caribbean bent. Mine was tilapia, delicious in a vinegar marinade, hubby crabcakes and guest a paella. The wait-staff were efficient, and pleasant. The atmosphere nice--and for us good--as it was... More

It just so happened that I ate dinner twice in one week here. Not a bad thing. The first night I had the Enchilada Acapulco which was wild caught shrimp, cabo crab cake, caramelized onions, flour tortilla, lobster/lime cream sauce, diced tomato, grilled zucchini, saffron potato cakes 23.00. Very good But I preferred what I had the second night which... More

Unique combos make this always a special experience. Thursday night is date night with reduced wine and a free dessert with Two dinners. Mostly seafood but great vegan and pork or chicken treats as well.

I have been to Pescados many times and every meal has been outstanding. I've recommended it to many of my friends and they love it too. The food is always well prepared, the service is outstanding, and the cook comes out to check on your meal. I HIGHLY recommend making a visit to Pescados!

My husband usually refuses to try restaurants in "strip malls" but finally coaxed him in and were not disappointed...everything from chips and salsa, appetizers and entrees were delicious!!
