    We celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary at Mango's. They decorated our table, something we did not expect, and delivered two glasses of champagne for us to toast. Food has always been very good. This night was no different. A great place to dine and relax.

    Peru? Where's that? It's at 11th and Lucas. This restaurant does a great job at being true to its named cuisine. There aren't many (any?) items that cater to the mac-and-cheese crowd, although the wine list is very extensive and, by nature, includes a wide range of wines from the obvious and less obvious locales around the world. I will definitely go back to Mango.

    Great food & very different! I had the seafood plate... Very tasty but spicy!! Also try the sangria. Loved it! The avocado salad was yummy too! Nothing bad to say! The server was very knowledgeable and recommend many options. I was there with my girlfriends and they all loved their meal. Definitely worth the price.

    I never had Peruvian food before and couldn't wait to try it. Drinks were good but I thought the special chicken and potatoes meal was bland - something I could have made at home. Perhaps it was just my bad choice. My spouse enjoyed the ceviche. I have had platanos before from Columbia and thought both versions we had (appetizers and dessert) were just OK. Maybe an off night for me or the restaurant?

    Great place. We were there on a Monday night, so likely less noise. Food and service were good. We did think the basic, lime and spicy flavor was common to mostly all the menu items we chose. But, we would go backagain ffor sure.

    My wife and I visited Mango for a nice quiet dinner out without the kids. It was a very tastefully decorated restaurant with very romantic ambiance. The wait staff was knowledgeable, prompt, and courteous. The food was the best part about our experience. We would definitely recommend this place to others and will also plan on returning.

    Of the several times I've been to Mango, the experience is always the same: phenomenal food, poor service. Our server let drinks run empty for long periods, and he brought me a birthday dessert (which was very nice, don't get me wrong) without asking if anyone else needed anything. Then he was MIA for about 20 minutes. There were 4 other people that wanted to order desserts, but since he vanished, we all just decided to get our checks and leave.

    Had a very good business lunch. The Peruvian tenderloin sandwich was very tasty. The Peruvian spices add to the taste. It is sort of Spanishy but uniquely different. A must do is the Pisco Sour - excellent!

    While in St Louis my wife and I had dinner at Mango on 9/8/14. We had a reservation and got the kind of table requested. The place was fairly empty that Monday night. We were served water immediately, but the it took a while before the waitress showed up to ask for any drink orders. Not sure why it took so long. The waitress was very friendly and asked us a few times whether we had any questions about the menu. After we ordered our appetizer and the main dishes they arrived rather quickly. We also had a pitcher with sangria that is really good. Compared to the price by glass the pitcher is a great value. The food was very good. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and the restaurant.

    Lots of small plates & entrees to try. We had the jalea, which is fried calamari, shrimp & fish bites with 2 dipping sauces & the skewers trio... And we could have ordered a second round of both! Delicious! We had the causa de salmon, which wasn't what we expected, like a Napoleon of potato salad with salmon. But it was quite good, too! The cocktails we both started with were wonderful, fresh, paired well with the food. We had the fried plantain "banana split" for dessert, which wasn't our favorite, but we were glad we tried. The waiter was friendly & helpful. Looking forward to going back!

    I took my girlfriend on a dressy date night (shirt and tie and her in a cocktail dress). We were definitely among the most dressy but still felt comfortable and not out of place. I had the Mahi Mahi, which was amazing, and she had shrimp with bowtie pasta. We loved our meals and the atmosphere. Great choice for date night or family night.

    We visited Mango during the downtown restaurant week when they had a special 3 course meal for $25. I loved the beef heart Anticuchos Corizon--I even gave a taste to my husband who liked it, too.

    If you're looking for a unique dining experience, Mango is a great place. Food was delicious and wonderfully presented. Small portions but definitely worth the price. I had the salmon and it was fresh, perfectly cooked and the sauces were perfectly matched. My wife had the shredded chicken and it was good, but was comparable to chicken and dumplings, so nothing spectacular. We were there for restaurant week, so menu was limited, but we look forward to going back to try the other menu options.
