Great from the moment we sat down at our table. Our waitress gave us just enough service that we knew we were being taken care of but not too much that it was annoying. The tuna ceviche was unbelievable - I would go back today and have it for lunch if I could. Great wines available by the glass, and the corn cake also stood out with great flavor. Highly recommended.

We sat at a table by the front window, the atmosphere was very nice and comfortable. Our waitress was very nice and informative about the menu. The food was very very good and the presentation excellent. I love peruvian food!! I look forward to future visits.

what a lovely dining experience we had! started with ceviche mixto. The best I had ever tried in the city. great start. For entrees we had the Lenguadito relleno with shrimp and mushroom and Peruvian Paella. More suggested wine that was perfect and for dessert we had the chocolate cake with maracuya ice cream. The service throughout was spot on, elegant and pro-active. Can't wait to come back. Go and Enjoy!

We had great expectations about this small “fusion” restaurant in South San Francisco especially since we have visited t Astrid Gaston, La Mar in Peru and Limon in San Francisco and read about it on AAA magazine this month. First impressions are important; unfortunately Piqueos didn’t live to the expectations. We wanted to try humitas and aji de gallina, unfortunately not available that night; we would have liked to try their aji de gallina. Their list of wines was nothing to write home about it, most of them middle of the road unknown wines. Among the tapas (small plates) we tried a dish made out of Andean potato chips, the chips were saggy so we had to return the dish Then tried their Arroz con Mariscos, but had to return it since it was gritty due to poor cleaning of the shellfish. Not a good idea eating sand for dinner and a second dish returned for the night. Peruvian cooking flag dish, Lomo Saltado, is a dish to try in any so called Peruvian fusion restaurant. It was a total disappointment. Piqueos claims in their menu that this dish is a Sautéed marinated New York Strip but what you get is a stew of cheaper meat. Interesting that when we talked about this faux pas with Piqueo’s chef he said that it was the owner’s recipe, that it was cheaper to prepare it that way and that their food was not for Peruvians. About the service, it was mediocre and dishes took a long time to arrive to the table.

The flavors are great and the food is unique, but the portions are skimpy and very pricey. The service was poor the evening I ate there. The atmosphere is loud and bustling. Definitely a trendy spot for the gentrified Bernal Heights residents who can afford it or people from outside the neighborhood, but it is not for the majority of the neighborhood residents.
