  • Good but....

    Dined on 8/16/2013
    Being great fans of Peruvian food and Gaston Acurio, we've been in La Mar in Peru and Mexico City many times and definitively love it. The ambience and piscos we're great but the food could be better, specially the ceviches. Taste was nice but very attenuated for us, we also found the traditions trio good enough but a bit more of rocoto and aji amarillo could put them in the great category. Next time we'll tell the waitress in advance to give us their best shot of real Peruvian food and not just the attenuated general version...

    We dined at La Mar during NY Restaurant Week and enjoyed the experience overall. Some of our food choices were fabulous, others just good. The food is unique so it's a great place to try something different. It is a bit noisy but a beautiful place.

    Food was great! Loved the ceviche (It had been a long time since I had a really good flavored ceviche). And the lomo saltado was spectacular, especially with the aji. Nice ambiance, not loud so conversation could be held easily. And the service was really good, very attentive and gave good recommendations.

    A friend and I went for Restaurant Week and were very excited since it was our first time trying Peruvian food. However we were very disappointed with our experience. The portions were sparse and a dish called "quinoa and scallops" came with only one scallop. I also tried a calamari dish but it was not very flavorful. My friend ordered a hanger steak with wedge french fries which seemed more American than Peruvian in preparation. The ingredients were fresh but sadly, the portions were too small and we were left wanting more. The service was good - when our waitress noticed that we had not received the bucket of chips before the meal, she was very attentive and made sure we got our bucket quickly. Not the experience we had been hoping for.

    We went for a restaurant week dinner with our friends, and we were all delighted. Delicious ceviche were the best appetizer, and it was plenty, not just a couple of pieces of fish. I had the seafood risotto (arroz con mariscos) for mains, a very tasty combination. I also taste my wife's sauted hanger steak, very juicy. Maybe as a minor downside of the restaurant week menu, there was only one choice of dessert (panna cotta) but we liked it all. The waiters were pleasant, did not rush our meals. Very decent noise level, we could easily talk together reasonably quietly. Will certainly come back.

    I liked the way they coked the kale leave on top of my fish! Desert could have been better. However, the servers were chatting with each other most of the time, and not paying attention to the guests.

  • Not Impressed
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/8/2013
    We were hoping for great service and great food! Instead we waited 15 min to be acknowledged, our drinks were taken- took about another 15 min to get them and yet they didn't want to take our order. We saw about 4 other tables get seated after us and they were already on apps! By the time the apps came out, they were stone cold. Not a server to be found! Couldn't tell the difference between the servers and busboys. 2 hrs & 40 min for a 3 course meal and 2 drinks. (Couldn't even order more drinks because there was NO SERVICE!) The server only checked on us during dessert, the other 4 tables that sat down after us had already left and new patrons had already ordered. Food too salty, drinks were great and the lights were way too bright!

    Everything was good. I'd go back for another try. Went there for restaurant week. We all agreed quality was good based on restaurant week pricing but we're not sure if we'd pay full price for the dishes we had. We tried all different combinations from the restaurant week menu. I had the cebiche, lo macho and flan. Quality of food was good but I felt there was a missing component. Portions were on the small side. We left our dinner a little hungry.

    I've never eaten Peruvian food before, so I had no idea what to expect, but the food was delicious, the service very friendly and efficient, and the setting a handsome re-use of ground floor space in the Art Deco New York Life building at Madison Square, inventively re-designed.

    Everything was excellent but to make this a perfect place for me, it could have been a little quieter. It wasn't unbearable though and if Opentable had a Noise Level category between moderate and energetic that's what I would have chosen.

    If you haven't had the flavors of Peruvian cuisine this is your chance to do so...one of the best chef's of Acurio's team is here in NY and you will not a chance like this again unless you travel to Lima and get all the flavors there.. My lunch at Cevicheria LaMar was excellent, all the flavors were great, I enjoy quinoa very much and with the spices that Peruvian cusine offers is surely be a palate opener..all the dishes were nicely plated and served at right temperature, the pisco sours were soooooo good!! Service very good, friendly and informative server, will go back again and again..

    I was most impressed by the well-balanced nature of every dish we received. Not only was each component delicious, but it all worked in harmony to create wonderful individual dishes and a great Restaurant Week meal. Add to this an incredibly energetic server to heighten up the "fun" level of the meal, and it was a wonderful date night for my fiance and me.

    We arrived at 7:14PM for a 7:15PM reservation. At the door we were told to wait for 5 minutes. Why? There were many vacant tables. The customers there were loud, very loud. We were allowed to change our table after some discussion with the waiter. The food was average. The waiters were friendly. There is no reason for us to go back.

  • Good but overpriced
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 7/24/2013
    Good but pretty over priced for this cuisine, Peruvian food is excellent and you do not need to go to a high end restaurant to find it at it's best. There are many other restaurants in NYC that make more authentic dishes at half the cost. Like most Latin food, it's best home made. This restaurant is more about ambiance and it's a good introduction to Peruvian cuisine for someone who hasn't tried it before or if they are not familiar with it.
