Excellent service, food and atmosphere. Showed up 20 minutes before our reservation and got seated right away. Happy Hour on Friday went until 7:00 and they were great drinks.
Strongly recommend and I can’t wait for o go visit again.

My favorite restaurant now! Had friends in town last night and took them here. So amazing.....I love the Tuna Nikkei and Pescado Macho, their drinks are so good too. Highly recommend the Guapo Chilcano or the passion fruit Pisco!

The food was very good. But the causa, especially the sampler, could be improved. I would like to see the traditional form of causa (meat in the middle) with avocado.

The food was the most disappointing part of the experience. The servers were somewhat attentive but not attentive or mindful. For example, I ordered a site of eggs and they brought them without the main course or any other food for that matter

Our first two small plates were amazing!!! Our main dishes were a little less wow. Our server was fantastic as far as service but because of the place being very loud it was really hard to hear her in the mask. Not her fault but tough situation. We would definitely recommend for a Peruvian experience as far as food!

We ordered the yuca a la huancaina, arroz con mariscos and tostones. It was the perfect amount of food for 2 people, very light and refreshing seasoning so a good option for dinner.

I wanted a table outside and was told it was going to rain and if it rained they couldn't guarantee that I would get a seat inside. The hostess was rude. PS People ate outside since it is covered and it rained and they were served.

The service was slow and I had to ask for a waiter. Also, I order two items and only one came.

I love this place, but was disappointed by the service.

I was really looking forward to this place that was highly recommended by a good friend but found myself very disappointed. We wait over forty minutes for the food that arrived very cold. The service was good and the ambient was fun but don't see myself going there again.

Food was excellent, but the service took longer than expected. I ordered bottomless drinks but had to wait over 20 mins each time for a refill (after flagging down the waiter) - so not sure I’d return for brunch again.

The traditional ceviche was delicious! The yuca fries were perfectly crispy and the perfect side dish.

Food from Restaurant Week menu was excellent, especially the ceviche, which the whole table raved about.

White sangria was also a hit. The caramel dessert was too sweet for most of us, though.

Attended an early Sunday bottomless brunch. Was pleasant, but I have to admit the place was rather cold in temperature. Not something that I'd normally ever consider either.

Everything was perfect BUT I have a concern about the suggested tip. My girlfriend and I split the bill and each of us paid $50. But the suggested amount at 20% was $18 and some change. But if you take $50 x 20% = $10.00. How do you get $18+? That seems very dishonest to me.

Our server was fabulous and the meal delicious. But this issue with the tip put a sour taste in our mouths.
