The staff and service wEregreat. The food however was comparable to grocery store deli fried chicken. No flavor. None! I'm ok with paying for what others may call over priced if it's good food, but when I pay $169 for two salads and 8 pieces...More

The food and service are always wonderful here. It is gourmet Southern cooking, and always a little surprise awaits your choice of dinner. It is a very creative menu, that will have you coming back again and again. Nice atmosphere, perfect lighting for dinner.

Pican is an upscale downtown (or may I say uptown) restaurant near the Paramount theater (where I went for my son-in-law's swearing in as a US citizen). Service was kind and thoughtful. Food was very tasty. Portions were large. Good cocktails. I recommend Pican

Pican has an amazing brunch menu. A fantastic mix of modern, southern, comfort food. Cheese grits were cooked perfect. The bloody mary was perfectly spiced and a great mixture of flavors.

Someone from work always recommended this place and I was not impressed. While the ambiance and overall look of the place was nice, the food was terrible. The wine list was larger than the food list. This was supposed to be "southern soul food", more...More
