Simple, yet, sexy, Tico takes diners on a journey of flavors through South America, Mexico, and Spain. Chef and owner Michael Schlow encourages guests to imbibe with phenomenal cocktails, tequila, and snack on tapas fit to satisfy any craving.



  • Try the sangria!
  • In the midst of this years tequila and tacos boom, the upscale Tico, from Michael Schlow of Radius, Via Matta, and Alta Strada, offered an instant party.
  • get to Tico for brunch...perfect spot for friends and kids!
  • The Great Bacon Cheeseburger is indeed great.
  • Ceviche has a very authentic and great Peruvian taste. The plate of serrano ham was huuuge. Chocolate tart is GOOD
  • Steak Taco was delish..get two because 3 is not enough...suprisingly spicy but really good
  • Try the Spicy Marinated Olives
  • Many fewer mice here this visit. Slowish bar service.
  • Lights dim at 6:33
  • If you like fish tacos come here, but make sure you're not hungry because it takes awhile - but worth the wait
  • Any of the tacos are a WIN. Try their shredded cabbage salad with salsa verde. Makes a great side dish to those tacos!
  • Try to work yourself up to eating a little blood sausage in the brilliantly revised Spanish tortilla and don't miss the shishito peppers or the chorizo risotto. Everything goes with tequila!
  • Loved the drinks. Blood orange Margarita was amazing!
  • Not bad, but just ok. Better than the suburban mall quality food (Souper Salad, Fire & Ice etc.) in its immediate area, but if it were near Toro, Estragon & Orinoco it would go down. Quickly.
  • 13 bucks for a shitty 8oz watered down "special" margarita. Total ripoff and terrible atmosphere to boot. Never coming back here again.
  • People often overlook the outdoor space in the back. Not a great people watching street, but not too much vehicle traffic going by.
  • Margaritas were pure sour mix aka sugar... would avoid cocktails and stick to wine or beer unless you enjoy $13 juice
  • Flavors were excellent however 35 min between courses and the portions were minuscule expensive typical overrated Boston dining
  • The blood orange margarita is amazingly delicious. Don't believe the troll who said otherwise about their margaritas. Chili's doesn't even come close!
  • Love the blood orange margaritas. Great jazz on Saturday mornings
