My great Picasso's experience

I discovered that Picasso’s tapas & Restaurant located at 62 W Santa Clara St. in the downtown of San Jose with abundant parking place, is a casual place to go for sharing a warm atmosphere, wonderful service, and delicious plain menu of Spain cuisine. The menu offers a great variety of food according to Spain country menu: Latin Tapas, salads, main entrees, paellas, desserts, and wine list, ports and Sherries. The... view more

terible place to eat

My husband and I ordered Sangria before dinner and after a taste thought it was awful. We gave it a second chance and thought that maybe our palette had to get used to it; but it got worse. It was so sweet that it reminded us of a Hawaiian punch. We had to tell the waitress we couldn't drink it and instead ordered a bottle of tempranillo for $45.00 that was satisfactory . We, then ordered the black rice paella. It wa... view more

Delicioso!

We started with salad, very fresh, had to fight my husband for my share! We also tried the chorizo, spicy shrimp with garlic and the "BRAVA" potatoes - wow! All of it was very delicious. Their dessert - Crema Catalana - was a fantastic way to end the meal. My husband and I can't wait to go back. Too bad they don't have one closer to the Concord area.

Greatly oversold

Less than mediocre would be my review. If I were this restaurant owner I'd fire the fruit and vege vendor and perhaps the chef. The tomatoes under the buffalo mozzarella were so far from ripe they should never have left the vine, and I'm not sure where the often spoke of wine vinegar was but it was not on this dish. And there were some tomato seeds with the sauteed peppers but everything was cold and was it really sa... view more

Go Friday or Saturday for Elizabeth's service!

We went to Picacco's for the 18th birthday of our son Julian. We very much enjoyed the atmosphere. We really enjoyed the fantastic food, prepared with attention to detail and very tasty. But we most enjoyed the great service by Elizabeth. She was fun, conveyed the energy we were looking for for this night and served us with great passion. Please go and check it out. Hint, she works on Friday and Saturday nights...

Food with real flavor!!!!

We just ate at Picasso's and even though the full service staff did not show up for work, we had good service, the food was wonderful, and the place lively and full. We will return, if they can provide such service and food without help, I can only imagine how wonderful it would be with a full staff. Service is becoming a joke at most places these days, and without the staff it seemed so much better than most, they ... view more

Nice night in Downtown!

Last Saturday my husband and I had the chance to eat really Spanish food at downtown. I found out while in the restaurant that it had a new owner and we had the chance to meet him as he approached our table and was very interested about the quality and taste of our Tapas. He was really kind offering an outrageous finale with a glass of Porto wine. Nice night in Downtown.

WOW! What a change

What a surprise to go back to Picasso's and find what had been lost. I couldn't believe my eyes to see all the changes in the place. New look, fast service and great food. We tried few tapas but my favorite one was the gambas mmmm delicious! The paella was well served plenty of all its ingredients accompanied by a sangria. To wrap up our meal for dessert we had a flan, sweet way to end the night. Two thumbs up.

Much better under new ownership

I had a really bad experience here a few years ago. Much has changed under the new ownership. The food is really fresh and tastes pretty authentic, particularly the cheeses and cured meats. My favorite tapas place in San Jose.
