The service was very good which always adds to the experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprisingly good Peruvian foodPleasantly surprised with the food - authentic Peruvian dishes, well made in some cases the variations are better (in my opinion) than the more traditional recipe - this was the case with the pan roasted Pescado a lo Macho. The Quinoa Crusted Oyster Po boy Sliders were great as was the humble Salchipapa that our kids ate with gusto.
Outstanding service and attention, highly recommend it.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Dining ExperienceAte with my husband and another couple for the first time at Costanera this past Saturday night.

We've been four times now and it's even more delicious each time. Especially excellent seafood dishes! Very attentive but not overbearing service. Great for a date night or a group.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food, large portions,Very good food, large portions, reasonably priced.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Find on Bloomfield Ave Mtc!Had Costanera Ceviche with crab, Arctic char and shrimp, Yum!! Would like spicier but wad delicious. Had fresh WellPoint oysters and Arroz con Mariscos--for lunch with my mother. Very much enjoyed the food and atmosphere, though it is pretty expensive. they do have a Lunch Special but nothing appealed to us so we ordered from the Regular/Dinner menu. finished lunch with Perfectly creamy flan and caramel sauce. Bonus was finding out Thursdays are $1 Oysters & $0.75 Clams on half shell! Will be back for that!! And it's BYOB!!!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding - a fantastic findHad such a great experience here. Had never had Peruvian food before. Was very much like Cuban food. Everything we tried was outstanding - including desserts! Our waiter helped guide us on ordering and he was fantastic. He was fantastic and present as we needed him theough the night. This despite the restaurant being packed to the brim. We understand why. Not enough places arpund like this. Authentic fresh food. Can't wait to return!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find!Super find! Peruvian food is a great change of pace. Terrific service and servers. Nice selection of fresh fish entrees and specials. Tip: If you bring your own pisco, they will whip you up a fantastic pisco sour! Otherwise BYOB.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall a really great andOverall a really great and unique find. Very interesting decor and food choices, and -- even though this was my second visit and I came because of the great food -- we found the food unexpectedly exceptional.
Service was the only unimpressive aspect. Seemed like they were running short-staffed. It took too long to get attention, then they were abrupt when taking orders, and then it took too long for the food to start arriving. Although the food turned-out to be worth the wait.
Despite how good it is, though, prices are high. $200 before tip for 4 appetizers, 4 entrees, 3 desserts, and 2 coffees (BYOB). Because of that I will not be visiting them as often as I would like.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent chicken empanadasExcellent chicken empanadas with a very light spice. The Osso Bucco fell off the bone and the spinach mashed potatoes were delicious.
I would go back.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food - consistently!Great food - consistently! Reservations are a must! This place is so popular (and rightfully so) that if you want a table without the wait, do yourself a favor and make reservations.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the tree walls, serviceLoved the tree walls, service was outstanding! As a BYOB dinner and drinks become affordable.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
