Mine was tilapia, delicious in a vinegar marinade, hubby crabcakes and guest a paella. The... read 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!

Every time (almost) we get to Richmond, we stop here for supper. Everything we've tried has been delicious. I did expect a little more upscale atmosphere, but the food makes up for it. Warning, I like spicy food but the voodoo shrimp are sweat inducing. The whole fish was a delight. We plan to return again and again....

Always fresh and delicious! We keep going back. Try the grilled calimari, you'll be glad you did. I love the Conch Fritters - they have a kick, and the grilled romaine salad. Yum!

One of the best places in Richmond not just Midlothian. Shrimp nachos are incredible, Voodoo shrimp is spicy and awesome, enchilada Acapulco is a must try! The avocado tart was incredible---keep it on menu.
