Overall, an expensive and disappointing experience. I ordered the fried tomato appetizer. Yuck. Shell was like a rock - a hard, stale, greasy fail. Try cooking things up fresh, kitchen. I also had the gator gumbo ( not really gator-just the name) and it was a delicious sauce with just about NOTHING in it. Rice was cold. Good place to get an expensive drink or two, though.

Went to Pican for dinner during restaurant week. The pre-set menu was $40 and did not sound very appealing, so we ordered off the regular menu. The fried green tomatoes and shrimp with grits - for appetizers - amazing. Beautifully presented and very flavorful. For the main dish we split their signature dish - Fried Chicken. While the chicken was moist and tasty, it seemed to lack a spark. Regardless, we enjoyed our meal. The cocktails were just okay. The ambiance was nice & on the high-end side. Good for large groups. Definitely recommend.

They have really good food and drinks here. If you're vegetarian, they typically do have at least a couple items on on their main menu. I really like coming here for brunch Saturday or Sunday between 10 - 2:30pm. Be warned, it can get really busy, so call or use open table and make a reservation. Entrees range from $23-$32 so if it's dinner for two with drinks, expect to pay around $100.

Pican is a wonderful restaurant to wine and dine your favorite people. It's cuisine is superb! I fell in love with the pork chops, cooked to perfection. I encourage anyone who hasn't been, to try Pican.

I went in to Pican's two hours prior to seeing a play. That was not a good idea. Most of the servers must have called in sick that day because the service was poor. Having come from New Orleans and being a good cook myself I was not excited about the choices of items on the menu. Nevertheless the presentations were welcomed. In addition I was not surprised at the prices either. I haven't found any restaurants in Northern California reasonable either. I like the atmosphere and will take my visitors who come from Southern Cal there.

This place is great! I feel like I say that a lot but this is another really good spot for fried chicken. It has great ambiance, good cocktails -- perfect for a date night or just hanging with your friends at First Friday (aka Oakland's Art Murmur).
