The server and the rest of the staff on the floor was excellent. The food was good and my prime rib was perfectly cooked. The Moscow mule my wife got was on the weak end. The desserts were huge and the Yorkshire pudding was ok.
Nice location and the burgers are good. I had an omelet which was just ok. It had a slice of bacon in it rather than crumbled bacon as I expected , and the broccoli had been thawed(?) so the omelet was a bit watery. Service was friendly, fast, and efficient.
We have been to Pikk’s at least 12 times and always had great food and a great experience, until our last visit. We were seated right away for our reservation, but once seated it took a long time before our server came to the table to get drinks started for us. We finally got to order and the food came out fairly quickly. The bus boys were good with keeping the water and drinks refilled which led me to believe it was just our server that was overly slow. I’ve had the half chicken before and it was great, but this time the chicken came out looking great but was dry and flavorless. The mashed potatoes I got as my side were also flavorless. I kept putting salt on both just to try to make it taste better, something I’ve never had to do at Pikk’s before. My daughter had the chicken fingers, also very dry and not much flavor. My husband’s ribeye was cooked perfectly and was probably the best thing our table got. My son’s kid’s filet was good but literally was about 4 bites of steak. Once we were done we had to wait for the plates to be cleared ever after we said we were done and asked for them to be taken away. The worst part of the service was then waiting about 15 minutes for the check to come after we had asked for it and then eating another 10 minutes for the server to pick up the check to run the credit card and bring it back for us to sign. Definitely not the quality of food or service we have experienced at Pikk’s in our other times there. Perhaps just a bad night.
Prices were high. Everything thing else was good. Overall nice experience.
great view, very accommodating and of course the food was great
Had a reservation but didn't need it as it was quiet. The special for the was prime rib. Tried to order it and they were out. It was 6pm. Very disappointed. Ordered the fish and chips. Fish was good but overly greasy.
Had a glass of wine. Thought the prices were high for Valparaiso.
Went for dinner over holidays—they were busy but seemed to have plenty of staff on hand. My dinner arrived at room temperature but we had waited so long I just ended up not eating rather than reordering. Two other dinners for our table were hot and good, the 4th had cold french fries. The waitress quickly offered to remove my meal from the bill, so they did the right thing.
About halfway through our meal, a guy arrived who had been "OVER SEVED" somewhere else. This individual, seated at the bar, was extremely loud and obnoxious. As far as I could tell, no one said anything to him about disturbing the people who were there for a special night out for New Years Eve. The food and service were outstanding. Someone in charge of the restaurant should have stepped in to quiet down this rude person.
We have dined at Pikk's many times since it opened in Valparaiso. I'm not sure what happened but the price has gone up and food quality down. Ordered a $30 Filet that had to be sent back because it was not cooked properly and when I got it back it was tough and full of grizzle. Was like chewing on gum and have gotten better filet's at local grocery. The other dinner was the pork chop which was okay but basically tasteless. Best part about the dinner was the baked potato. For an upscale restaurant they should have higher standards for the price.
Server was fantastic, very attentive
The food was below average. My salmon was really salty and the other food was not good. Service was very marginal.
Good service food and drinks!! Will visit again soon!
$36 steak was overdone. Server seemed to ignore us. But the appetizers were great, and I'm willing to try it again.
Comfortable surroundings with tasty food... I recommend the salmon!
Menu item described was not what was served.
Flatbread was served cracked and toppings bit spread evenly. And no cheese!
Very cold and noisy making it not very enjoyable.
Waitress awesome! She was very chatty and apologized for the menu error.
Won’t be back for a while.
Yes, but do not order the steak. Wasn't cook correctly.
Excellent food and service, steaks were cooked perfectly med/med-rare, rigatoni was great as always. Martinis and drinks made perfect.
The aged ribeye was excellent. The Bombay dirty martini was perfect
Fries were too salty. Took too long to get drinks.
Service was a bit lacking. Server didn’t know much about menu or what side substitutes were available.
A great meal at a great restaurant. Nothing could have made it better.
We were very disappointed with our dinner. Our server was very unattentive. We were one of the 2 tables in there and my mother in law had to go get her 2. She brought the wrong drink to my daughter. It was my daughter's birthday I was hoping for better
big fat juicy burgers, too many delicious fries..
great servers...great downtown stop
We always enjoy our visits to Pikk’s. The personal attention and food are amazing. Thank you!
Pikk’s is always a wonderful experience !! The food is excellent , and the service is always top notch ! A great place for celebrations , or for a casual dinner !!
Great place! Food was delicious. Service was good.
Pikk’s is a great spot. If you’re familiar with service at Giovanni’s and Vinci, you’ll love Pikk’s. My steak was excellent!
Great food and a great place to meet up with friends.
Always great food! Second time going here and it is always great food and service
The food was excellent; steaks were cooked perfectly and appetizers were delicious. Great cocktail menu. They seemed short-staffed; our server was also the bartender and he almost seemed annoyed that we were there. We didn’t feel particularly welcome, and the questions our guests asked about the menu were answered in a dismissive way. I would give it another try, but being hospitable goes a long way.
Great experience. Only wish would to enjoy a little bit more time between appetizers and entrees to finish our drinks and relax a little with friends.
Extremely disappointed, service was terrible!
Service kids meal after everyone else! 2 hours for salads!
The pasta dish I ordered with shrimp in spicy taco oil was so oily that my pasta was drowned in it. To much oil on the bottom of my dish. Could not finish eating It. Italian music was frowned out by Kitchen noise with Spanish speaker. The room was too cold at times. Parking was awful. Had to walk two blocks.
We have been to Pikks many times and this time it was a warm day outside and they sat us in the front window area. It was so warm it was uncomfortable. Three out of four of us that were dining were visibly sweating. Not a pleasant way to eat dinner.
The location and decor are great, but that were the best things of our experience at Pikk's Tavern. The service was slow and mismanaged. For the four people at our table, appetizers and main dishes came out at the same time for two of us, the others came in spurts - it was clear that either the cooks or wait staff was confused. Some of the food was good, but the gumbo tasted like tomato soup and the Pad Thai was like a soupy stir fry (even the waiter said that he didn't know why the restaurant offered it on the menu). It was difficult getting our waiters attention to address any of the issues. Won't ever go back... which is a shame.
Bread was served at every table right after seating except ours. Food is overpriced, zero presentation to it and I’d rather eat Applebee’s.
Celebrate College graduation
We've been going to Pikk's off and on since they opened and have had some very different experiences. Some very good. Some not so much. I would have to agree with many of the other reviews that the service was the biggest problem. Unorganized and uninterested. Tried again last night and enjoyed some of the better service I've had anywhere. The food quality was good. The service made us want to go back
Reservations available on time.
Loved the bread, tasty with a very crispy crust
The brunch was a great surprise, the entree’s of salmon was outstanding and the buffet was great. We would do this again.
