“Wonderful Dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We were recently visiting family in Midlothian and they suggested this restaurant as they had been there before. Our waitress was lovely and informative helping with questions and recommendations. I ordered the Enchilada Acapulco (after asking her opinion). It was one of the best meals I have had in awhile! I ate and enjoyed every morsel! Next trip up to Midlothian we will be sure to return. You won't be disappointed!

“Excellent Carribean Seafood place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

I was in town for business and stopped in for dinner on a beautiful, 80 degree April day. I was able to snag a great table on the patio. I had an appetizer of Voodo Shrimp a very tasty and spicy warm up. For dinner, I selected the Fish Tacos, which were delicious! A great place to gather with friends and have great food and drinks. If I return to the area, I will definitely be coming back to Pescados!

“Always yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We've been dining here ever since it opened and the fish tacos are my favorite. It's nice to have a little caribbean flare in Midlo!

“Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

This place was a little hard to find, but worth the effort. Despite being in a strip mall, the place has a nice modern ambience, and, even on a Monday the dining room generated a pleasant buzz. Service was professional and the food was inventive, smart, attractive and tasty. The seafood specials were fresh as advertised and the small plates were much appreciated by the light eaters in our group.

Wish this place was at home instead of Richmond.

“Fresh and unique flavor combinations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

If you like seafood, this is a great place to get it. All of the menu descriptions from appetizers to desserts sound tempting. They don't have a huge number of entrée choices on the menu, but every appetizer or seafood dish we have ever tried has been top-notch - a generous portion, fresh, flavorful and a little different. It is said that they have fresh seafood flown in/delivered daily. The menu also includes some non-seafood choices of pork, chicken and beef, but we have not tried any of these, though the descriptions also are appealing. They usually have some very nice daily specials to choose from, and Thursdays are "Cheap Date Night," where you can get $9 bottles of house wine (white or red), and a free dessert with the purchase of two entrees. They also start you off with delicious complimentary salsa and blue corn tortilla chips dusted with sugar and salt. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, happy hour from 5-6:30, and the waitstaff is friendly and attentive. We have not been disappointed on any of our half dozen or so visits. I highly recommend it, and have enjoyed the mahi-mahi dish more than once.
