Delicious new seafood find!

We stopped in for dinner for the first time tonight...so glad we did! Upon entering there was a sign letting you know that they had just reopened this evening after a remodel. Despite being busy we were seated quickly. Our server Cathy was wonderful! She welcomed us and asked if this was our first... read more

Visited around 8:30 pm on a Friday night with no reservation and was promptly seated. We chose this spot having seen the high rating from previous TA reviews and having only just arriving from out of town. Once seated we each ordered a cocktail (no beer on draft - bottles only). With our drinks came the house tortilla chips and... More

Our favorite restaurant in Midlothian. Creative choices, fresh ingredients and friendly staff make this a winner. Thursday date night is popular for inexpensive wine, dessert to share and regular menu items. Enjoy!

I almost consider myself a restaurant expert these days, since we eat out regularly, and I must say that Pescado's has consistently been one of my favorite Richmond restaurants. The food is fresh and delicious EVERY single time. I am a pretty picky eater, and this restaurant has caused me to successfully expand my horizons. What a great twist on... More

Great for a nice evening out with your sweetheart...or gal pal! Food is presented nicely, and very good. It's a nice change of pace from chain restaurants.

Previous visits were generally pleasurable to what was always my favorite restaurant in Midlothian (see my previous review titled "Much Ado About Something" linked below). Lately, however, I've had the feeling that the staff has lost its passion for the business. I still like the spicy offerings but the cooking has lost its edge and the service has fallen off... More

This place has it all. Fantastic food, great service and pretty nice atmosphere. It is our favorite place in town. The menu leans heavy on the fish side so if you are not a fish fan you might not be as happy. Desserts are great too. Prices a bit high, but you get what you pay for.

Called in only about an hour ahead to say we were coming in from out of town and needed a place for about 7 people, each arriving at separate times. They were very gracious about setting up a special table for us and didn't make us feel rushed that we arrived at slightly different times. The food is always good,... More
