    Good food, nothing outstanding. Ceviche was good, main dish of mahi mahi was slightly overcooked. The service is slow. Did not meet my expectations of a true Peruvian dinner. Would likely not dine there again or actively seek out the restaurant.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 9/22/2012
    I tried this restaurant because it was on the Miami Spice list. Although the server was very nice it doesn't make up for the more serious flaws. First: when ordering the wine I asked for a recommendation under $50. He continually steered me towards wine that was $70 stating this was the best. I respectfully declined the recommendation and choose a wine for $40. They were out of this bottle and he brought me another bottle for $60. I settled on a wine for $30 which we enjoyed. The food was tasty but the fish was over cooked for all of us which made it a bit rubbery. One diner said she prefers her fish over cooked the rest didn't. Again, the meal was fine, the sauces tasty and the evening enjoyable but I would not go back.

    The food was great - had the Miami Spice menu and the appetizer and main course were really good. There was no choice for dessert and the dessert was very disappointing - a very sweet pie with what tasted like Hershey's syrup poured all over everything.

    I've eaten here several times and always found it enjoyable. This time a friend and I enjoyed the Miami Spice lunch menu. Excellent ...as usual. The restaurant was new to her and she was very impressed. I am sure she will end up returning often, as happened to me two years ago. A great place!

    The service was terrible. My server was never around when I needed her...several times I had to get another server to bring me what I needed. I was so annoyed with her absentmindedness! Then to add insult to injury, they automatically included 20% tip on my bill. I refuse to pay 20% for poor service. After an apology, they took it off, but not a good experience overall.

    We are very discerning visitors and first time came to try the Latin American and particularly Peruvian cuisine. There were fears that it would not be very tasty and very exotic. But the experience was very interesting. All dishes: sea food and meat dishes deserve the highest praise. Food quality and taste great. In your experience have verified that the system 30 percent OFF including alcohol, is working.

    Our second visit in as many weeks proved to be just as satisfying with wonderful Pisco Sours, tender and delicious calamari and octopus with olive sauce. Jumbo shrimp Inka was succulent in a creamy cheesy sauce and the authentic tasting Seafood Soup was scrumptious.

    Our first time in this restaurant. Overall it was fair. Not the best. The decor was beautiful. The server was very charming. The live music was great. A great atmosphere. The Food delivery time was great. The highlight was the ceviche was AWESOME. However, the only down side was the entrees and desert. The mahi mahi fish was very dry and over cooked. Had a burnt taste. Lost my appetite...Wasn't impress. And the steak that my husband ordered was over cooked and had no taste! Husband asked for well done but in return it was too burnt. Also, they forgot the chimmichuri sauce that came with it? And finally, the desert wasn't great. This is a place if you want to eat light, like the ceviche's and drinks. I do not recommend for dinner.

    We visit El Gran Inka every year for good reasons. The service is outstanding, the food is especially wonderful. Start off with a perfect Pisco Sour and move on to delectable appetizers. We ordered the Seafood Plate to share; it was enough for 4 people to share so we took some home for lunch and it was perfect the next day too. I ordered the Inka Lobster and my husband had the Arroz con Camerones. Both were delectable. We did not have room for desert, but next time we will try to hold back on the main courses to try something authentically Peruvian!

    Our delightful Colombian waitress walked our party of six through the extensive menu and not being knowledgeable about Peruvian food, helped us order. Everything was tasty, not overly spicy, and well prepared. The ceviche was fresh - with fresh white fish of some kind mixed in so it was not as delicate as I am used to. Our entrees were varied - mostly seafood but some steaks as well. Bottom line - we ordered way too much, left food on the table - but walked out stuffed.

    The Appetizers were huge and delicious. Main course the right size. Steak, fish, seafood, ceviche, everything was amaizing! For my husband's point of view, the OCTOPUS TIRADITO & TUNA CEVICHE was the best ceviche he has ever tried. For me, the PERUVIAN SKEWERS / ANTICUCHOS PERUANOS were delicious. We got coctails, wines, veal, fish, seafood, desserts, everything we were expecting and the overall is that this s a great peruvian place to hangout. Thank you for the great service. We will definitely recommend El Gran Inka.

    Great place for dinner, appetizer portions are big, wonderful tastes. Service is very attentive. Some staff speak multiple languages, helps the diners feel right at home. Would visit again if in the area. The Miami Spice program is a great way for diners to experience new dining venues and the restaurants to be noticed.

    This was a nice find, as the restaurant was really quite good and there was reasonable value. My only complaint is they would not honor the Miami Spice program on a Saturday in September and they were about half full.
