The paintings on every surface by Paco are amazing. Worth going for just the art. Excellent service and tasty food. We will take others here when visiting for that special occasion.

Not only is the food and service exceptional but the artistic ambiance is beyond description, a replication of the ceiling of the Cystine Chapel created by Paco using cans of spray paint. It is a must yo experience.

We love Paco's! And the 4 course dinner menu can't be beat! Plus you can customize it how you like (some options cost more) but it's worth every penny!

Outstanding food ! Fast service, efficient. Busy night yet our food came hot and cooked to perfection. The lobster bisque was rich and flavorful, the pear salad was crisp and full of fruit. I highly recommend this place.
