Pescados has some surprising combinations, great flavors and the menu lets you experiment with things you would not normally think of. They use some imagination in the presentation as well. Just normal looking from the outside, really interesting inside. Fascinating place.

Pescados puts together creative seafood dishes. Sometimes it's great and sometimes it's outside my taste zone. Never a bad dish, so it's worth being adventurous.

Good food with great service. A little pricy but well worth the extra money. They also have excellent desserts and some you could die for.

Although called a seafood restaurant, about half the menu entries are seafood. The rest are a mix of other foods, so the menu although small has quite a variety. The emphasis is on Caribbean and Latin flavors, and its menu items reflect this very well. We had their version of a Cuban sandwich, which was different than the usual and... More

First time at Pescados--and they set the bar pretty high. Excellent waitservice with a recommendation for the special--a pan-seared wahoo on quinoa. Meant to take a photo of the plate, but forgot as I dived in. Fish was just a bit over-cooked, but flavor and portion were tremendous. Best quinoa in memory. Chips and salsa were interesting--blue corn chips sprinkled... More

We've consistently had great food here. Fish tacos, chicken burrito (not on the menu) and enchilada acapulco are good choices - all tasty very fresh. The voodoo shrimp has an amazing combination of flavors...if you're up for a little heat. A little more expensive than other local restaurants so tend to come here on more special occasions.

Wonderful food! Every meal we have had there has been excellent. It is a no frills local seafood restaurant with the best in town. We have been there many times.

The three of us ate here one Friday night in late July 2014. We chose it because it was less than a mile from our hotel and had excellent TripAdvisor reviews. Our meal was delicious. We had their broiled calamari appetizer and it was savory. Everything we ate was wonderfully flavorful. Our service was also superb. This place looks very... More

A very small restaurant in a strip mall. But what a find. Server came quickly with menus and took our drink orders. I ordered the house Pinot Grigio and it was just OK. The server told us the special and I ordered it..a wild sockeye salmon. Had it cooked medium. It came with potatoes with arugula pesto which made them... More
