Vibrant hot spot where Latin American-inspired small plates are prepped in an open kitchen.- Google
People talk about tacos, small plates, tequila, cauliflower and blood orange

Originally my plans were to attend Fire and Ice, however the vibe across the street caught my attention. My girlfrieds and I decided to be adventures and take a risk and decided to attend Tico. As we walked in the atmosphere of the restaurant was amazing. We were greated by a female hostes who explained that the wait for a table was 30 minutes. We decided to wait and had a few drinks in their lounge area which was amazing. Before we knew it we were informed that our table was ready. We waited at the table for about 10 minutes for waitress to come. Eventually after waiting our waitress made it to our table. We order our food and continued with our conversation, 20 minutes passed,30 and finally one of my friends got her appetizer, than we waited another 20 minutes and our food started to come to the table. However my one of my friends who had order Lobster Tacos, her food never came. We asked a different waitress to check on the tacos because our waitress disappeared. It took them less than 5 minutes for the tacos to come to the table. I believe it was the manager who brought the tacos to our table, he never apologized or even try to. I had order the steak which was very cold and not medium well like I had asked. At this point I was ready to explode. We were so upset we asked for our bill, it took our waitress about 20 minutes to come and finish our transaction. Our bill came out to $159 and some change. The experience was horrible, we ended up leaving and had to make a stop at Mcdonald's because we were all hungry. I will give the restaurant 4 stars for the atmoshphere and decor. If they put mored efforts into their peoples skills and service like they did with their vibe and decor the restaurant has alot of potential. I don't think I will be visiting this restaurant in the future.

Had a business lunch here during a quiet time . I had ordered an iced tea, and had to ask for a refill after the waitress had come and gone several times for other things. When I got the refill, it was a half sized glass, and the wrong drink. I drank it anyway (it was an Arnold Palmer), and was never able to get another refill. I had a steak with "pomme frites" style yucca. The steak was excellent, but the side vegetable was not inspiring at all. The yucca was obviously not prepared correctly, as it was still uncooked in the middle of the majority of the pieces despite being well fried. Overall, I wouldn't come back here for a meal as there are much better options in Back Bay, especially in their price range.

Tico has a unique menu and is one of the best restaurants of its kind in the city. Impressive drink menu is tequila-focused, which makes sense, but the coolest part is their tequila club! The ambiance in here in lounge-y but not in a way that would put most people off. They do offer free coat check which makes it feel a bit classy, and the dark walls and interesting space make this a comfortable place for dinner or drinks. Try some of their tequila-based martinis (which isn't really a martini, I know, but don't tell them), and bring groups to the big surfboard-shaped high tops if you are out with a group.

Tico is a great space and has a cute little outdoor space that's fun and funky. The tacos are simple but delicious (especially the shrimp-bacon-avocado taco) and the roasted cauliflower is out of this world. Drinks are only so-so: order the paloma for an authentic fresh-squeezed fruit+tequila delight.

The cauliflower dish is out of this world delicious. It gets noisy and crowded at happy hour though.
