    We love the food here. I always get the pork shoulder with garlic spinach sauté rather than the potatoes. My daughter loves the lomo saltado as well as the chicken. Lovely servers and tonight a woman chef!

    This was our first time at Piqueo's. They have a nice range of small plate. We had the salad, pescado ceviche, quesadilla de pato, scallops, and mushroom empanadas, as well as lime margaritas. We enjoyed everything. Some particular standouts were the potatoes served with ht scallops, the duck in the quesadilla, and the crust of the empanada that was crisper and lighter than traditional empanadas. We did find that we prefer traditional margaritas to those served here that use sake infused tequila.

    This is the second time we ate at Piqueos. We remembered the food being better. The vegetable salad was very good, the ceviche was good but very limey. The paella was tasty - not like Spanish paella but with tomato sauce. The Lomo lomo saltado was too salty and didn't come together well - like separate items that happened to be on the same plate. Service was quite good.

    We've dined at Piqueos a few times and always enjoyed it. The food is terrific, well cooked, imaginative and generous portions. The staff are friendly and efficient. We find the music too loud, but we're older than most. We'll be back, hoping for lower volume.

    Everything was on point— from the smiley face pisco sours to start, to the fresh and balanced flavors of salmon ceviche, some surprise stars in the form of smokey grilled octopus and to finish, the most comforting and idyllic Aji de gallina. Desserts were unique and delicious.

    We arrived early and were seated immediately inside. Food was outstanding and good portion sizes. The only slight disappointment was in ordering the ceviche, you would assume that chips came with it and an extra $6 was charged. Other than that, for a Friday night, prompt and friendly service at 7:30 pm, excellent!

    This was my third time visiting and unfortunately this visit did not go well. I ordered the Lomo Saltado. I was disappointed as the beef was over cooked and there was more vegetables than beef. The may have been 5 pieces. The flavor seem to be off as well from my last visits. My guest had a terrible experience as when ordering to told the waitress she did not want clams in her dish because she was allergic. The dish arrived and as she started to consume it she discovered they had replaced the clams with mussels and scallops! The mussels were OK but not the scallops! She is allergic to that as well. Not good! These items weren't listed on the dish so she was very upset and as a result was ill later. Very irresponsible not ask if substitution were ok. Our check was waived as it should have been but I will be second guessing to return to dine.

The wait staff was helpful, explaining the dishes, and attentive without being intrusive. Tables are well spaced so one feels a sense of privacy. I will be back to try other dishes on the menu.

    Piqueo's is one of the best fusion restaurants in San Francisco. They serve a Peruvian menu with a nod to Japanese cooking techniques. The ceviches are unique and varied, a treat for the eye and palette. The waiters are very friendly and helpful. The Ambience is good for a special occasion, a first date, or if you just don't feel like cooking.
