A word from Panca
Panca Restaurant serves Peruvian cuisine. From our fresh cebiches to our tasty lomo saltados and rotisserie chicken, Panca uses the best, most authentic ingredients in a modern presentation.
See all photos >
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."

The food was good, I think it
would have been better if their was heat in the restaurant"
Dined on 12/17/2013
Everything great but a peruvian
restaurant without Inca Kola is not a peruvian restaurant. The restaurant was very cold."
Dined on 12/8/2013
Food is amazing... my favorite
peruvian restaurant in NYC for sure, the most similar to the typical peruvian dishes... nice enviroment, service is excellent, food delicious. Looking forward to go again!!!"

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."

Just felt very well taken care of.
Fresh, fun, delicious food."

Visited with a Peruvian colleague,
who assisted me with the menu options and cocktails. Ceviche was a huge portion - enough to share. It was good, not great. We shared the fried seafood platter - again good, not great. This is a small restaurant. Service was very attentive for half of our meal, then a party of 8 came in and that seemed to suck the waitstaff's energies. Waited quite a while for the check. Great opportunity for people watching out the front windows, and outdoor sidewalk seating is fabulous weather permitting."

My first experience with Peruvian
food, so I can't vouch for authenticity, but I loved it. The food was excellent, the prices very reasonable and it was very popular, there barely was an open table the entire time we ate there. My husband had one of the ceviche shots and it was a very large portion for just $3.00 but even more importantly, it had lots and lots of fresh seafood & it tasted really great. I tried the quinoa risotto and it was really, really good. I loved the combo of mushrooms, tomatoes and asparagus with the nice creaminess of the quinoa. The cocktails were original and the spicy ginger cocktail (sorry, don't remember the name) was absolutely fabulous. It had a nice kick to it and helped to keep us warm while sitting outside."

The best Pisco Sours in NY and
great Peruvian food"

Tasty tasty food, tastier drinks,
and excellent staff. My only complaint is they are always out of the yucca fries. More yucca, please!"
Dined on 8/16/2013
Came to Panca with some peruvian
friends and was gladly impressed by the variety and flavors of their cuisine. I especially enjoyed their lobster causa and the ceviche is made fresh to order... For entrees i recommend their lomo saltado and their arroz chaufa de pollo is also a must! To round up your meal get a pisco sour or algarrobina cocktail and you will have a true peruvian treat!"
Dined on 8/4/2013
The food was delicious and service
was extremely attentive to make sure we were having a good time. As a child of a Peruvian mother, the food was really well made compared to other Peruvian restaurants in NYC. I would definitely go again, especially during their happy hour special - sangria is perfect!"
Dined on 8/2/2013
Every time I visit Panca, I try
something new and never leave disappointed. I have been there on a weekday and the service is definitely super compared to the weekends. On a Saturday evening, if you don't have a reservation (so they claim), they will place you by the bar counter. Nothing bad about that, but if you have many dishes they might not fit in your space. I went there on a Monday evening, and the place was not too busy. Service was really good, together with the food and the happy hour, which by the way, it is good for drinks and food! I am planning to come again with more friends!"

Our waiter made this a memorable
experience by explaining the background and preparation of the typical Peruvian dishes he was recommending. Our group tried several cocktails and preferred the Piscomojito to the Picso Sour. The cebiche and tiraditos were delicious and portion size very generous. We enjoyed the Tacu Tacu Steak and the Aji de Gallina (shredded chicken in a delicious sauce). But the item that will draw us back is the Rotisserie Chicken. All this entrée can be found at many restaurants, it is really amazing at Panca!"

I reserved on OpenTable 15 mins
before arriving. Had to wait 45 minutes for a table because the owner didnt actually have tables available."
Dined on 7/18/2013
All of the dishes we tried at this
restaurant were very tasty. For the price, the portions were tiny. If you have a good appetite, then you either need to eat before you come or be prepared to spend at least $100 (unless you just want chicken)."
Dined on 6/28/2013
This is a casual place. The
ceviche was good, everything else was not so good. A huge bowl of chicken drenched in something that made it unrecognizable. A huge salad with a weird combination of veggies. I was there with one other person, the portions served were for 4-6 people. It was an awkward experience."
Dined on 6/8/2013
Rotisserie chicken was
delish...moist inside and crispy skin outside. Ordered the Lomo saltado with the tender chunks of ribeye was very good. Both styles of ceviche were also good. But the pisco sours is what made the evening."

I recently ate at Panca with my
wife, who is Peruvian. The menu is very basic but has a good variety of Peruvian food. I have been to a few Peruvian restaurants with my wife before and a couple of things that were missing were Cancha, which is fried peruvian corn which is typically a free little dish that is served. They also did not have Chicha, which is a traditional purple corn drink. Asides from that the food was delicious. We ordered the Ceviche mixto which was very fresh. For main course we ordered the Tacu Tacu steak which was excellent and we ordered the fried Yucca which was great as well. The service was very good. Overall the food was great and the service was very good."

only second NYC restaurant i
repeat visit, the menu entree choice bit small, but impeccable service, delicious food, perfect pace, its awesome!!"
Dined on 5/19/2013
The food was delicious, we got
cebiche and a roast chicken, and yucca fries. Downside was that our reservation was for 12:00 and they weren't ready to seat us until 12:10, and even then, they were continuing to clean the restaurant and didn't take our order until closer to 12:30. This was on a Sunday, so don't book noon on a Sunday if you're pressed for time."
Dined on 5/12/2013
Friendly service and solid drinks
lead to a surprisingly wide variety of Peruvian dishes that will keep you coming back time and again."
Dined on 4/25/2013
Waiters and service were very nice
but they were totally overwhelmed on a Saturday evening. Our reservation was forgotten and we had to wait for over half an hour and our food repeatedly came cold to the table. They did invite us to a round of drinks and were very nice but they don't seem to have any organization for a full restaurant so it is quite chaotic."
Dined on 4/12/2013
hi, i'm peruvian and though i
rarely go to peruvian restaurants in the us, i was feeling nostalgic and heard of this place. i went with three other friends and ordered the lomo saltado, ceviche, anticuchos and tres leches. also, a couple of maracuyá pisco sours. i liked the food but the service was really really awful, the waiters were fighting each other, they ignored our reservation (so we waited for almost two hours- don't know why we didn't leave really..), and they were altogether just absent- never gave us a menu, etc. besides that, my only problem with the concept of the restaurant is that they have tacos (???) which is not peruvian food at all... and that the waiters don't speak spanish nor know anything about peruvian food."
