Diner Reviews
  • "We tried two classics, ahi de gallina and lomo saltado. They were both excellent (though the ahi de gallina could use a bit more ahi amarillo). The service was slow but friendly. The atmosphere was bustling and crowded but not too crowded. I would definitely go back again."

  • "The flavors were unmistakably Peruvian, but with a lot of local invention and fusion. A standout appetizer was a base of potato with a tuna tartar on top. I never saw anything like that in Peru, but who cares - it was delicious. The Aji di Gallina was well balanced. My Pescado a lo macho was perfectly cooked, though I would have liked it a little spicier. Excellent Pisco Sours."

  • "Panca was alright, but not what we expected. the piscomojito was great!!! the anticuchos were good too. the entres we ordered wasn't good at all. arroz con mariscos was salty and no much sea food there and aji de gallina my husband just got 3 bites and left the whole plate aside. the ceviche for what we went for was simple and the seafood we got there was about overcook shrimp in slices and calamari. very disappointment that i brought my husband there for his birthday. the service was really good, but the food is what people come back and we won't."

  • "The food was right on the money. Really good portions. Great Cholopolitan and awesome Sangria. Dessert was delicious and the empanadas were a delight. Most definitely I'll be back for another round. Great service and ambience. Loved it"

  • "Some of the most delicious cebiche and tiraditos I've had in the US...equal to some of the best places in Lima. The tiraditos (sashimi-cut fish with no onions) were exquisite. They serve a variety of cebiches, just as the places in Lima do. In Peru, people eat these dishes only at lunch...to acidic for dinner time. Here, I'll take them when I can get them...along with some Tums. Good service, but I could do without the house music. Panca instantly became our go-to place for Peruvian food."

  • "I used to LOVE this restaurant. It's still good, but it seems to be going a little downhill with the food. The ceviche used to be amazing, but the last time I went it was subpar. The fish had not spent enough time marinating, and it was very bland. The chicken soup was outstanding, though. Really hope they can bring it back to the level it used to be!!"

  • "One of several Peruvian restaurants I've eaten at recently and this is definitely one of my favorites. The lomo saltado is fantastic, just wish the side dish of aji was actually spicy. Pisco sours were pretty good. Staff was very friendly & definitely plan on going again."

  • "Went to this restaurant with high expectations as it had been recommended to me by a friend. We arrived and the place was empty. It was 1:45 and the first thing we were told is that they were out of certain items on the menu because they had been busy the night before. I tried the lomo saltado but it had too much garlic and so did the rice. Their ceviche needed more seasoning. Their pollo a la brasa was not good either, we requested white meat and were served dark. For dessert we were also told that they were out of certain items on the menu. Their sangria was not that great - perhaps they need to improve the quality of their wine."

  • "It is a non pretentious restaurant but the food was good. The wine list is very short but the cocktail list is great. The service was a little slow but the waitress was very nice."

  • "We were looking for a Peruvian restaurant in the neighborhood as I had a craving for pisco sour and some ceviche. Panca didn't disappoint! Every dish we had was really tasty, and the drinks were great! If you like seafood, I recommend the 'Tiradito Mosaico Mixto' for an appetizer, the Aji de Gallina and Lomo Saltado were also fantastic dishes! We can't wait to go again!"

  • "Really enjoyed dinner at Panca on Friday. The food was delicious (especially the ceviche) and the atmosphere was low-key and cozy. It's in our neighborhood - we'll be back!"

  • "My partner and I went to Panca after seeing an off-Broadway show down the street. We both loved the place; the atmosphere was casual/hip and the crowd was obviously enjoying the night. I had their peruvian Cosmo, which had passionfruit in it (loved), and we both had rotisserie chicken and rice (both great). The price point is good, so an evening here won't break the bank. Will definitely be back."

  • "I visited Panca for the first time. I had a delicious soup that was perfect for a cold day. The dishes with quinoa were well portioned and representative of quality Peruvian cuisine. My server, although nice, was rather inattentive. She seemed more interested in chatting with a few friends at the bar. I'd give this restaurant another visit, but hope the service is a little more on par next time."

  • "I got a reservation last minute on open table. My date and I had set out to dine and dance in the west village but by first dining option fell through because of the wait time. "Lickety split we found a spot at panca. So basically I really needed panca to save the day for this date and I must say panca came through. After arriving at the restaurant other complications became apparent- namely that my date didn't eat either spicy or raw fish which makes us incompatible on at least those two dimension. But when we explained her conditions to the waiter the waits handled it perfectly with a very honest assessment of the spice level of each of the dishes. We enjoyed all of the plates we ordered. The ambiance was solid as well."

  • "maybe just an off night (I went there a few years ago and it was better) but while some dishes were better others were so so. They brought out the wrong dish for someone and while it was replaced rather quickly, they clearly didn't put in the effort and it was different/worse than another version of the same dish someone had ordered. considering the neighborhood you can probably do better though there are worst fallback options."

  • "Everything great but a peruvian restaurant without Inca Kola is not a peruvian restaurant. The restaurant was very cold."

  • "We realized we were going to be a bit late at around 7pm, so we changed our reservation from 8:30 to 9:00pm. Even though we made the change and it was confirmed by opentable, they gave away our table when we were not there at 8:30 as they didn't see the change / didn't check opentable. We then had to wait almost an hour for a table, and as the restaurant is so small and was crowded, they told us to wait outside in what was a freezing night in NYC. By the time we got our table we were numb, but the food was delicious and our waiter was incredibly friendly so we let it slide and enjoyed the evening. I was surprised though that management didn't do something nice for us, comp us a drink or whatever, considering the inconvenience."

  • "Planca has a nice selection of Peruvian and Peruvian-inspired food. All of the food was well-prepared, and the presentation was nice. The ceviche (mixto) was some of the best that we have had. The service was excellent and friendly. Although there is a very small wine selection (two reds), both (a tempranillo and a malbec) were good and a nice accompaniment to the food."
