Finally a great restaurant here!
I was very impressed having lived in Pacifica for 8 years and having only been to this same location once before when a previous (and absolutely terrible) restaurant was here. There is a great view here when it's sunny, and the food and drink were great. Empanadas are fantastic. I ordered a pork dish with quinoa. It was wonderful too. We will be back.

The food, scenery and service
The food, scenery and service were wonderful. The only negative is the music was too loud and coupled with the overall noise level made it difficult to carry on conversation.

Very good food, different, interesting ! Will go again!

Gorgeous And Delicious
What a beautiful restaurant. While I could not imagine what a Peruvian restaurant would serve for brunch, I was delighted to
taste the wonderful omelet and ended up with the steak salad. This is not a place where just one wait person takes care of the
table - we were constantly getting water and coffee refills from whoever was passing by our table. I definitely will come back
here again. Oh, and the wonderful ocean view was a plus.

Puerto 27 has an excellent variety of fish and meat dishes with very interesting spicing. Every dish we tried was excellent. A great place to try a variety of small platters to familiarize yourself with Peruvian dishes. Bar selections, including craft beers was very good.

Gotta Have It!
Great place. Delicious food. If you love ceviche, you have to order the ceviche sampler. Excellent.

Delicious wide variety of seafood. Large menu, can't wait to go back. Outstanding view! Look forward to dining there on a stormy day as well, watching the waves from the wall of glass. It is very loud with cement floors but I didn't feel like I had to yell to be heard.
The desserts need help. There were only three, we had two and neither were remarkable.
Overall great place, happy to go back!

Good food and a great view
I've been here twice and both times the food was very good. The ambiance is fun and view fantastic. I'll go back!

Quality dining moderate prices
I enjoyed my birthday dinner there. Even though it doesnt stack up to the other Peruvian place south of Pacifica or Moonraker, it was nice to try something new. With new management and a new Chef, I would definitely go back there again and try some other dishes.

Fun spot in Pacifica
Have been to Puerto 27 several times now, and have had a great time each time. The food is excellent, the drinks are yummy, and the ambiance is very good, and our service was exceptional. The dining area has a great view of the Pacific Ocean, especially at sunset. You can dress up or be casual, come with family or friends, and enjoy every minute of your time.

Will Be Back
My husband and I went here on a Friday night and we enjoyed the food. I had a delicious glass of Sangria too - Yum. The dinner plates we had were a little small but the quality of the food was good. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and very tentative and the view is very nice. We will be back to try some other dishes.

Puerto 27 Wins
This restaurant had such a good vibe, nice people everywhere and very roomy. The food was over the top we all loved it and I can't wait to take our family members and friends. See u soon Puerto 27.

Puerto 27 good except for the noise
A group of eight of us wanted to see what all the fuss was about at this fairly new restaurant.
The food was excellent and we enjoyed everything we ordered. There's a good drink menu and we liked the Pisco specialties. Our different seafood stews, paella, sliced pork were unique and well prepared. However, the noise level made it impossible to converse. I could only hear the person on each side of me and still felt I had to shout.
So, go for the food, the view and maybe seek out a day or hour when the noise level may be less. This was a Saturday night

Awesome eats, great view & beautifu
When I arrived at Puerto 27. I was meeting a really good friend, who arrived earlier than what our reservation was for, when I asked if we could be seated sooner the hostess came back to our table at the bar within 45 seconds to let us know we can be seated immediately. Well, we were seated the rest of the evening was great, our servers were at the table moments after we were seated, they took our beverage and appetizer order. To make a long story short, the evening was fabulous, the food amazing!

Four of us went to dine at this fun hot spot in Pacifica. We were celebrating a birthday. This place does not disappoint. The service was slow at first, but once we were greeted everything fell into place from there. We enjoyed Piscos. Yummmy! The flavor profiles were delicious. So many things were cooked perfect from the calamari to the boulibaisse(sp). The only thing was there was an overabundance of red onion in too many of the dishes. We shared and ate 9 different dishes. At the end a few of the plates still looked fairly full, because there were too many red onions to begin with. We will definitely go back to enjoy these otherwise wonderful and flavorful dishes.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Interesting food & beautiful view
Great location overlooking the ocean with a creative & well executed line-up of the traditional Peruvian favorites. Some dishes explore the Chinese and Japanese influences on Peruvian cuisine which brings variety to the menu. A well organized bar menu highlights cocktails using Pisco and a good selection of beer and wine.

Dinner at Puerto 27
We appreciated a window table for 2 to view the upcoming sunset. The more interior tables are seated very close together, typically they are tables for 2 but don't provide much intimacy or privacy. Service was prompt, helpful and commendable. We shared the trout dish and could have easily had one each. The trout dish was very good, moist and tasty. One person also had the mixed fried seafood plate; it was good but the scallops appeared to be missing in action. Another tried the swordfish skewer, it just needed a bit of lime to add some moisture to the fish. We would go back and we would recommend the restaurant. Just a reminder that small plate portions are served.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is great! Ever since this restaurant has opened it has been our staple place for dinner in Pacifica. My fiancé and I have had many date nights, groups dinners and a big birthday dinner party.
The service is great but there were a few times that the service lacked. But the only thing that has always brought us back is the GREAT food!!!!!
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a busy nnight so service was a bit slow, but good food and good wine made it nice.

Dorothy are we in Pacifica?
I am a food snob and yet I live in Pacifica - Linda Mar to be precise. My wife and I finally succumbed to the buzz re: Puerto 27 and decided to give it a try - for brunch one Sunday and dinner last weekend. After two visits I can say two things - the food and piscos are fantastic (we've tried multiple things on the menu), and the service - once you actually get the attention of your authentic and knowledgeable Peruvian server - is very good. Both times we relied on our waiter's advice and we were not disappointed. The down side is the place is not yet in sync service-wise - appetizers are brought to table before drinks, servers bring the wrong plates to your table and the hostesses are semi-clueless. It should improve with time hopefully.

Great and pretty authentic Peruvian treats. Gorgeous location make it a wonderful date place or nice group event.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, view, and service!
This is my new favorite restaurant in the Bay area. I recently went with a large group and the staff was so incredibly nice and attentive and even understanding when a few in my party let the drinks go to their heads. The food is fantastic, cocktails delicious, atmosphere is nice, and the view is outstanding (I like to take a walk on the beach after dining here). This place is worth the drive from wherever you are!

Great Friday Night Dinner !
We had a fantastic dinner with girls night out.
Food and drink were perfect !

This is my second visit to Puerto 27. Great food, great service!
Highly recommended and a super hot spot for the Coast!

Excellent Peruvian food
We loved this restaurant and have all agreed that it's a keeper. Gorgeous views, great food-the anticuchos were succulent and spiced perfectly. The trucha encebllada was to die for as well as the arroz con pato. The stand bys such as Lomo Saltado were also extremely well done..a don't miss was the mussels with chorizo...we loved the sauce so much we ordered more bread to capture every last drop. We loved this one so much, we can't wait to come back!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Peruvian food served in tapas sizes. Reasonable prices.
Restaurant opens at 3 pm on weekdays. Suggest early dining before 6 pm to enjoy the sunset view.

Celebrating our anniversary
We went to Puerto 27 for our anniversary on a Thursday night, we made reservations and they honored it by seating us immediately. It was right at the end of the dinner hour at 7:00pm and the place still had plenty of action going on, hospitable staff, and an interesting menu. It's definitely not your average American restaurant, it sticks to its Peruvian roots and the staff will explain what a Pisco bar is, as well as, the variety of different foods and beverages they offer. Would highly recommend this restaurant, but make reservations to be safe.
Lastly, this restaurant is inside of a hotel that sits on a hill overlooking the beach and highway 1; the views are picturesque on clear nights and the ambiance and lighting are exceptional.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ate here for the first time after friends told us how good it was and other reviews were excellent. We both have allergy issues, and the server was extremely helpful and friendly guiding us toward something on the menu that we could enjoy. We both wound up with the duck breast over rice. Their green rice was excellent, the duck was a little on the rare side but wonderful. The spices were mild, as we requested, and the flan and tres leche cake for dessert were top notch. The bar was active, the room was happy and people were clearly enjoying themselves. We will go back and try more items on the menu. And the best thing is that we live 5 minutes away. Oh, and it was an awesome day and the sunset and twilight were beautiful.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been to every restaurant that's been in this spot prior to Puerto 27. Each one failed for a variety of reasons. They have brought something special to the neighborhood. A very classy place, with a wonderful bar and an eclectic menu with outstanding food, prepared with care and wonderful ingredients. A bit higher priced for the area, but worth it. Love their Pisco selections (I had a flight #2) and a great offering of tapas style dishes. We ordered several dishes and all worth terrific.
I live a few blocks away and drive past it everyday, and everyday, it's packed. Love seeing that. I'll definitely be back.

Peruvian Perfection Minus One
We had delicious wine, decadent food and good service! View of the ocean wasn't to shabby either!
Just don't order the fried chicken dinner, it was more of an appetizer and plain!!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food but noisy
I met a friend here for dinner and the food was wonderful. We shared a ceviche and the pulled chicken stew and would have licked the plates if we could. The only problem was the noise.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our 2nd dinner at Puerto 27 in a month. It was even better the 2nd time around. We all love fish and the ceviche is to die for!!! The freshest fish is served with complex sauces. I am already salivating and can't wait to go back. The ceviches, the pescado sudado, the swordfish skewers, and definitely the chicharron de pollo are all A MUST ORDER. My adult son also loved the yucca which is generously offered with various dishes.
It is a great treat to have such a fantastic restaurant locally here in Pacifica.
WE'LL BE BACK!
10/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
My girlfriend and I went there on Halloween. She got the chicken and rice, I got the duck breast. Both of us were satisfied with our meals but the plantain chips weren't the best. They didn't have much flavor so they needed a sauce for dipping or something. I would however eat here again and would recommend it to others.

Just What I Hoped For
The boyfriend and I came here for an anniversary dinner. I spent some time living in Peru so he chose this place to make me happy haha. :) The food leans toward Peruvian fusion, but it is SO YUMMY nonetheless. I love that it's by the water, and despite the fact it was night time and we couldn't see the ocean, I felt calmer just being there. I ordered the Aji de Gallina and he orderd the porkchops and we were both happy and full by the end of the night. Sangria was yummy, as was the Tres Leche dessert. The food is worth the price, and our server was so helpful and friendly! My only regret is that I couldn't order everything my eyes wanted, though my stomach probably was grateful for it. :p

Great food........I plan to
Great food........I plan to return soon. The only downfall is that it is so busy that it is very loud. Make a reservation if going on the weekend. The food offerings are unique and better than expected.

truly a neighborhood find
Great place for Peruvian fare. Very noisy, but the food is worth it.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Don't know if the bar scene
Don't know if the bar scene really is vibrant, but it's a nice bar with that potential.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent food, cocktails
Excellent food, cocktails and service! Everything was fresh and delicious. The fish of the day was fresh and prepared in a wonderfully spicy sauce. The Cau Cau was perfection! The ceviche sampler is a perfect starter. Our server was knowledgeable and charming.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delicious Peruvian cuisine!
This was our second visit and it won't be our last. Our waiter, Bryant, was attentive, informative and friendly without hovering over us. The food is wonderful! This time I had the causa masaki, a new dish for me and the choritos (roasted mussels) which I had before and cannot resist. Husband had the flat iron steak and literally licked his plate. Tried 2 different kinds of pisco sours - yummy. Also shared a dessert, can't remember what it was called, that was wonderful: cookies, sandwiched with, I think, dulce de leche. We'll probably each order that next time instead of sharing! The food is very fresh, very tasty and presented beautifully.

A Thanksgiving to Remember
Imaginative Thanksgiving Menu with beautiful presentation and complex flavors. Lively place to celebrate and enjoy very unique cocktail art. Best Pisco Sour in America! Incredible Don Q Rum cocktails as well.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
The restaurant was not busy due to the holiday. We arrived for an early dinner reservation and were served promptly and cheerfully. It was too dark and cold to take advantage of the outdoor seating, but I can imagine this place would be delightful on a warm evening with the sunset and ocean view. Puerto 27 is very similar to Costanoa restaurant a bit further to the south.
Our server was very kind in explaining some of the more unusual dishes. Our soup was brought late with the meal instead of the apps, but it was delicious and the manager brought us extra wine gratis.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Terrific seafood, beautiful
Terrific seafood, beautiful ocean view, lively music, and friendly, professional wait staff at this casual eatery.

The Coastal Escape
Finally, an eatery in Pacifica that I can finally call a restaurant. Me and my girlfriend had brunch, but opted for the dinner menu. Unfortunately, it didn't come with lunch prices. The food was very tasty with proportions that were just right, depending on what you ordered. The staff was cordial, which made for a pleasant experience. The ambiance was quiet, because there weren't too many people in the restaurant, but just enough. The place was spacious with high ceilings and a gorgeous view! I just wished the tables and chairs were slightly higher so I could look over the wooden fence. But it is the perfect place to dine with a view without the hustle and bustle of the city. They also have a great bar with a TVs and a view too!

Oceanview dining in Pacifica
This is a great new restaurant in Pacifica. The views of the ocean are super and it is fun to watch the sunset.
Food is tasty. I love the beef salad. Calamari mixto is excellent. Lots of fish options.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
great but limited brunch
Had a delicious omelette, the "de la Huerta."
But don't expect bread or toast. They serve neither, as is often the case in Peru.
