WORST service, okay food

We went here because the wait at Andalu was 2 hours and we were starving. We were seated by a nice hostess, and within 1 minute, our waitress came over to see if we were ready. Of course we werent, but we quickly ordered a few small tapas plates. We then ordered drinks, and within about 4 minutes we ordered the paella, which said that it would take at least 30 min. Our server, after taking our order, NEVER appea... view more

Sangria and Garlic, Yum!

I first tried Picaro when I saw the big Sangria sign in the window while waiting in line at the Roxie. I love the Tortilla de Patatas and Sangria, but be prepared for major Garlic breath well into the next day. This is a great place to take visitors on the weekend so they can get a taste of the Mission. The service is always very good and I have never had to wait for a table. The place is huge and can be very noisy. ... view more

Great food and service

This was a great dining experience. However, the noise level can be pretty high. Good place for birthdays/celebrations.

9.2 rating?!?!?! Far from it!

This was one of the most horrible tapas restaurants I have ever been to. On Friday nite we were craving tapas. But because we did not make reservations we could not find a good place with a wait shorter that an hour and a half. Then we came across Picaro. Descent size crowd and only a 15 min wait. So we decided to try it. Ordered the seafood paella ($30 for 2 person order) - rice was under cooked yet burnt on the bot... view more

Made my birthday special!

Thanks to Picaro for making my first birthday in San Francisco so great! They accommodated my table of 15 people, yet it didnt feel cramped or crowded. The service was great. They had the sangria flowing the whole time, food came out quickly, and prices were excellent. The food is delicious and the sangria will have you wanting more. We had a ton of food, and yet the bill came out to less than $25 per person, most o... view more

Paella muy rica!

They serve one of the best paellas I ever had - after those I cook myself because it's one of my specialies. As one of the other reviewers noted, it's the dry kind of paella - not wet and mushy - because they broil it a bit in the oven. The result: yummy! and really loaded with seafood. The calamari and the huge garlic shrimps were also finger-licking good. Sidewalk tables and patio outback are nice in hot summer day... view more

The tapas is good!

We were in San Francisco on the 4th of July weekend and were mainly looking for a new tapas place to eat in, which landed us in Picaro Tapas. I loved the sangria and found it very similar to 'ChaChaCha' in SF itself. The tapas were good- specially the garlic shrimp. The price was reasonable and the amount served was also good.\r However this place had very little light towards the end of the restaurant and since we ... view more

Picaro has really gone downhill

Picaro used to be a good spot for authentic Spanish tapas: tasty Serrano ham over pan con tomate, chipirones a la plancha, gambas and champiniones al ajillo. But when we recently returned to Picaro for the first time in a couple years, we discovered that the quality of the food has seriously deteriorated. The mushrooms had lost all of their character and bite, arriving at our table limp and bland. The pisto de cal... view more

not worth the hassle

I used to love this restaurant. However, last time I went I was seated 20 minutes late with a reservation. Then, another FORTY minutes went past before we could even get a drink, despite numerous complaints to the host. They offered to comp the drinks, and then charged us for them anyhow. There is no reason for such poor service, ever, especially with so many good restaurants in SF.

Hit or Miss

I debated rating this restaurant as average, but their good dishes make up for shortcomings. Their seafood combination was delicious with scallops and calamari (two things that are easy to mess up) being prepared perfectly. The Japanese eggplant fell short by having some pieces cooked through while others were a bit undercooked. Oh, and vegetarians beware. We found one stray pork rib in this dish, which was a del... view more
