    I love Peruvian food and wanted to eat in the Village. The restaurant was very quiet and had very few patrons. The food was fantastic and the service even better!

    This is a very casual place, with good Peruvian home cooking. A god Peruvian chicken restaurant is always a welcome addition, nice to have o this new addition on 8thStreet. The pisco drinks are fun, and they have an extended happy hour. A very welcoming place with gracious staff.

    VIllage pisco is located right next to NYU, so it has quite a location! A lot of people order from the place, but I came for lunch and I actually really enjoyed my time. It was really empty, so we really had the place for ourselves! The waitress was really nice, a little bit too clingy at the beginning (but I think she was rather bored -- we were her only clients). We got our food very quickly, it was really tasty, I had the chicken lunch for 9.50 and my mum got the peruvian fried rice (the portion can feed two people I swear!). it was all reasonably priced considering the amount of food we both got served ! I totally recommend this place for people willing to discover peruvian food (it's delicious and worth trying :) )

    With Yelp's 4 star review, I chose this one for a dine out. Unfortunately, their menu is short and with 4-5 listed but not available for a Friday night, there were few to choose. Waitress was untrained and crude, though not mean. Food is ordinary and just edible!

    The roast chicken was excellent. And the great news is - you can add it to just about anything on the menu! Service was outstanding! Truly A+. Pisco sours were awesome. Tasted like they were made with homemade bitters. Music was just the right volume for conversations on a Saturday night. Even with a party of 12+ next to us, we could hear each other without any problem.

    As soon as I entered, I was greeted by a lovely, helpful server. The restaurant has very little ambiance and a limited menu, and yet it was terrific. You must have the Peruvian chicken; it is among the best I've ever eaten.

    Perfect food, the half chicken is magically marinated perfectly -- The service is incredible. Family owned and they are beyond accommodating. The drinks are delish and the bartender tweaked ours to include ingredients we liked. And the prices are not crazy -- its the perfect spot that my friends and I like to meet for a nice dinner out. Beautiful atmosphere. Will be back!

    Happy to find this restaurant. Delicious chicken, moist and well seasoned. Don't miss the sweet plantains. If you enjoy pisco sours, this is your place.

    We were so happy to have found this restaurant. We were in the mood for ceviche and ended up delighted with much more than that. The rotisserie chicken and side dishes were exquisite and truly felt fresh and home-made. The service was outstanding! We learned this is a new restaurant and they deserve to be well-known for their delicious food and wonderful service. We were there late on a Sunday night and will be back very soon to try the weekend night scene at the bar.

    Really disappointed. This place markets itself as a Peruvian restaurant. Unfortunately, they did not have a menu available on there website or I would have been prepared for what we really encountered. This is NOT PERUVIAN food. A quarter of the menu includes Italian pastas, another quarter is generic American appetizers, some sandwiches, then a couple of rotisserie chicken options. In any of this, where is the Peruvian food, where is the ceviche? They need to re-brand there restaurant as an American restaurant with Italian offerings. As a side note, drinks were great.

    This place was a great find. The best Pisco Sour I've had in a while. The menu is very small but the plates are reasonable for the area. Its more of a drink and share a plate pale. Very intimate. We had a party of 7 and since there where only couples in there they could accommodate us but larger parties then that you may have to rent the place out or make sure you make the reservations way in advance.

    I live around the corner and was very excited to know that we have a Peruvian restaurant in the neighborhood. I generally get my Peruvian chicken from Pio Pio and they are consistently good. I tried your chicken and it was just too dry. I also thought you were understaffed on valentine's night, food took a long time to come and water were not refilled.

    I made a reservation for 8 @7:30 (1 no show) for my birthday Friday. My original reservation was for 10 people; VP couldn't handle us 7 with the bar and other tables also full. There was one bartender, one waiter, and one waitress/buser. My guests ordered appetizers and waited almost an hour for them to come out. The entrees also took a long time. Inexplicably the salads came out last. The sangria good. The food was good and I thought the fries were especially well seasoned and cooked. The chicken (I had the sandwich) was a bit drier than I'd like. Everything was also missing the traditional sauces. Portions: huge for the price. Although service was extremely slow waiters were pleasant. Everyone enjoyed herself which is the main thing.

  • Where's the Peruvian food?

    This was a strange dining experience. I was so excited about a Peruvian restaurant opening just a few minutes from my office, and arranged to meet an old friend there for lunch. But when we looked at the menu, there was only a handful of dishes that could be, by a stretch of the imagination, called Peruvian. We ordered the overpriced seafood stew to share. With the side dishes, it was enough food for lunch, but the seafood was overcooked, the sauce was not very flavorful, and there wasn't enough of it. They do highlight roast chicken, but that's only become a Peruvian food in the US. I suspect the place hopes to make it as a bar, but in that case, they shouldn't bother opening for lunch (or dinner for that matter).

    My party and I wanted to order something easy and enjoy our time together. Our servers were friendly and wonderful. Our dishes were delicious. We recommend for anyone who want to sample both Italian and Peruvian dishes.

    I think this restaurant is fairly new, so they are still working out some kinks in the kitchen. The drinks were great, and the space looks very nice. Our server was great. The entrees, however, came out based on how many of that particular item were ordered. The Peruvian chicken (was great) came out quick. 10 minutes later, the steak came out (also good). Then another ten minutes and our seafood entrees came out (this was maybe 7 pieces of seafood with a mountain of rice for $28, skip it). And so on... long story short, about 40 minutes passed between when the first entrees came out and the last. And the last was for our VIP. We were a large group, but the only ones there. They will need to fix that issue if they want to be successful.
