A word from ' La Cerveceria
' La Cerveceria introduces Latin American tapas with sharp Peruvian influences and a concentration on American craft beers and new world wine from the realms of small and landmark producers. ' La Cerveceria celebrates a host of lime-influenced, cilantro-specked dishes. Crafted from the freshest ingredients available including organic and locally harvested finds, the restaurant builds upon the complex, classic flavors of Latin America, including marinated meats, seafood spice, hot habaneros dressed in flavorful sauces and subtle ceviches traditionally found south of the equator. With spice that has top toques raving, it goes down well with ' La Cerveceria’s standout list of New World suds. Our downtown New York City location, designed with natural woods, a marble bar, and a bright open kitchen that adds further warmth and provides the ideal setting for this new concept. Like the cuisine itself, ' La Cerveceria dining experience is updated, clean and high energy. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Had dinner here last Saturday night, 8pm reservation. Chose to sit inside, which was surprisingly quiet, though that changed an hour or so into dinner. The food was delicious. Perfect for sharing with the lobster guacamole, mushroom, salmon, and braised short ribs being standouts. The beer and wine list is extensive and the cocktails are not to be outdone. Top this off with dessert and cappuccino and you leave satisfied. Perfect for large groups, who enjoy sharing as portion sizes ran a bit large for two sharing."

  • " Good spot to sit outside and relax and have a drink and some light bites- tapas style. Appetizer portions are on the small size."

  • "This was a great place to go after theater or local event. The extensive beer list justifies its name. we ordered a number of small plates and they were all terrific. Lobster guacamole did have real lobster chunks throughout and the Argentine empanadas were full of tasty meat. The dipping sauces for the yucca fries enhanced the flavor. The customers all seemed happy to be there and the service was a bit scattered but very friendly once they engaged your attention. We would definitely go back."

  • "Top of my tapas list! I'll start off by saying ...What the HELL? Why have I not been here before? Why was I missing out on this ridiculously delicious food! Delicious Sangrias! Beer and wine list is impressive! Good was tasty and delicious! Skirt steak is tender and marinated perfectly! Salmon was fresh and sauce was perfect accompanying it. The service was also wonderful here, I love a place where they are on top of their game."

  • "The food was all a variation on the same thing - drenched in a red, mildly spicy sauce. I ordered several items and they all tasted the same because they had this sauce on them. Service was not stellar - could not even understand my waiter. Outdoor seating area is nice though."

  • "I've eaten at many Peruvian restaurants, and this is one of the best ones. Their ceviches are fresh and fabulous, and everything else is delicious too! And do keep a little spot for the Pana Cotta which is the best you'll have anywhere. The restaurant is small and cozy, and service is friendly and efficient. When the weather is pleasant, you can sit out on the sidewalk. If you like beers, they have a huge variety from around the world. Finally, the price is very reasonable by NYC standards, and the quality tops. Great food and great deal by any standard. "

  • "I took my parents there for dinner as we all enjoy tapas and thought peruvian tapas would a nice change. The fish ceviche was very refreshing and zingy, the skirt steak skewer sooo tender and tasty, the chicken empanadas sweet and crunchy, the goat cheese fritters very delicate and the mushroom peruvian potaoes earthy. It was outstanding! We ordered the chocolate truffle for dessert and the chef actually also offered us the panna cotta which was, you guessed it, delicious too! Service wise they were extremely attentive without being overbearing. It was just perfect. I highly recommend it!"

  • "We had an excellent meal. The fish tacos and quinoa salad were very good, the steak skewers were excellent, and the causas with mushrooms were superb. Wine choices were very good, and prices were reasonable. The service was friendly and fun. Although the crowd tends to be young, we had a couple of 80-year olds in tow, and they fit right in. Service can be a bit slow, so leave time to chat. The only thing I would improve is to expand the liquor license beyond beer and wine so they can pisco sours."

  • "I booked this place for lunch so my sister and I take our mom for mother's day. Overall, our experience was good. The wait staff was friendly and willing to help with menu options, food was good. The only disappointment we had was that for 1 PM they only had brunch menu (very limited). The lunch menu starts at 3 PM (what?). When I was booking, I was looking at the lunch menu which looked very good, so this was a disappointment."

I would definitely return again because of warmth welcome/service and great food."

Ceviche, arugula salad (not sure why it was so good, but it was incredible), some mushroom and potato dish and salmon. Very impressed all around with the food and excellent service. I was there once before for drinks and a few small plates and it was excellent that time also. Nice cozy comfortable place"

  • "My friend and I stumbled upon this restaurant and were blown away at how amazing it was!! The wait staff were very friendly and courteous, the food was incredibly done! All the ingredients thoughtfully put together to create mouthwatering dishes. I go out to various restaurants throughout the city, but was blown away by this one! I'm definitely coming back!! Menu items to try: Lobster Guac Ceviche (any of them) Skirt Steak (we had the plate, which was awesome but I'm sure the skewers are just as good)"

  • "My family of 4 are scattered within the NJ, and NY Boroughs and LI, so we decided to meet in Manhattan, and they let me pick the place. I found this delightful place on Open Table, not realizing that the name translates to The Brewery or something like that. Well we decided to pick off the menu at 2:30 rather than the brunch as we all had eggs for breakfast. We enjoyed our choices immensely and the 2 beers were great ... though the bloody mary was not very tomatoie. It was by far the most happening place of other choices in the immediate area. Looking forward to going back "

  • "I Had a wonderful time! The tapas are excellent. I'd re-order everything we got!!! Peruvian ceviche, steak skewers, goat cheese cake. Service is exceptional here. Very friendly and kind to your wants, they offered their help from opening the door to the restaurant to letting us taste the wine and beer selection, which is extensive. "

They have the best white sangria I have ever had! Make reservations because it does get packed half an hour into dinner the place was full!"

  • "Overall experience was great. Tapas style menu so very fun to share plates with a group. The Chilean empanadas was the standout dish to us. The only dish below par was the lobstor guacamole. The guacamole was very cold as if it had been just thawed. The lobster was very good however. Staff were super friendly and accomodating. Great place to try different beers as well."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Fun and good food, but it was so loud we couldn't hear descriptions of food items, we had to wait a very long time for food and we we're told that they lost our order and dessert would be on the house. We ended up ordering dessert and we were still charged for it.....not cool!"

  • "We love the tapas style of eating and after reading the reviews and making a quick stop by to check out their menu we booked up and went for dinner. We looked at the menu for about 5 seconds before deciding this was the place for us - The menu and especially the beer menu really is so extensive and you will argue over which dishes to try as they all sound so, so good. Staff are friendly and attentive enough, the bar tender was really nice and let us try few wine before buying which was nice."

  • "I set up a dinner for my girlfriend's birthday with 10 of her close friends (reservation was for 12 in all) on a Wednesday night. People filtered in shortly after 8 pm, the high square take was ready for us and we were showed to our seats. Antonio, the owner, came over to personally direct the wait staff and give menu recommendations. The drinks flowed (great wine and beer selection by the way) and the food was timed perfectly. The tapas style appetizers and entrees were very tasty and added to the good social atmosphere of the meal. Everyone really enjoyed themselves. Finally, the restaurant has a great ambiance and felt perfect for a fun, yet intimate/romantic evening for the group. I will go back there."

  • "I was disappointed to find that my party of 4 was relegated to a cramped and very uncomfortable table despite the fact that I had made a reservation a week earlier. My complaint to the manager was unfulfilled although they nicely explained the siutation. Waiter service was spotty all night. The food comes fast once you order so be prepared. Based on earlier reviews I expected the food to be better than it was. The Lobster guac was ok, really jusr ordinary guac with a few pieces of lobster meat on top. Fish tacos were good as was the meat skewers.To management's credit, they comped two deserts because of our difficulties. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit again."
