Recently took business associate
to dinner..when came to pay bill, was told no AMEX...this was the only credit card I had !!...was forced to ask dinner guest for payment...There was no notice anywhere in regards to not taking AMEX...very very bad business..this is the second time the payment policy has changed..two times prior, I was told only cash...this is bad business...The food was good, as usual..the server was a bit clueless, but very nice...."

The night that we went, there was
no one else in the restaurant. The food was standard Peruvian chicken fare and it was decent. However, it was a little overpriced compared to the other Peruvian restaurants in the same neighborhood and not a lot of variety. Still, I got my 1,000 points and I will go back because nothing goes better with roasted chicken and green sauce than getting points on OpenTable!!"

The restaurant had a intimate
setting and we were served promptly. The sangria prepared by the server was amazing! The ceviche dish was really great and definetly whetted our appetite for the seafood platter that came after. The roast chicken was done perfectly and was very tender!"

If you want great Peruvian food
Warique is an excellent choice in the UWS for you. My wife who has traveled extensively throughout South America for many years said that the recipes were extremely authentic and gave the food served to us a 4.5 out of 5. The service is definitely in need of improvement. This is not the first time we have eaten there and it takes forever for the food to be served so don't expect otherwise during prime time dining hours. The couple seated next to us were so frustrated over the slow service they walked out. My guess is that the kitchen is very small and they cook one table's order at a time. Also it took well over 10 minutes to be served a single glass of wine. This is totally unacceptable."

Food was good and it's possible to
have an inexpensive meal. Good wine at reasonable prices. Dessert on the other hand was of fair quality. Lovely waitress and hostess; therefore service was good."

Before going ideas some of the
other reviews and feel the same. The food was great. I had the sweet plantains, amazing, a salad, the dressing was the best I have ever had and the potatoes. The sauces on all of the food were so flavorable. You have to have a pisco sour. The food service was a little slow. It seemed like there were plenty of people working so I'm not sure why things took so long to come out. If you have the time to really enjoy a meal then this is the place."

The grilled veal hearts, with a
spicy green sauce, and the signature chicken were delicious; the 2-for-1 sangrias were well-balanced. Unfortunately, the timing was out of whack and the original food order was misconstrued. The place was virtually empty at 6:45, yet our order wasn't taken for 20 minutes. (Servers were seen chatting at the maître-d's station.) We ordered a whole Peruvian chicken; only a half-chicken arrived. We were promised another half "very soon"; this never appeared, despite several reminders to our server. While waiting (another 20 minutes), we ordered sides (green salads): these never came either. No explanation or apology was offered. Perplexed (in light of the glowing reviews we'd read online), we left."

Totally undiscovered gem of the
UWS. The restaurant's poor location is likely the reason why my girlfriend and I were the only ones there for an early dinner, although to be fair it was a Tuesday. First off, the cocktails were A M A Z I N G. And reasonably priced @ $10. Their Peruvian meat dishes were bold and delicious. The decor is also very nice and inviting. We will def be back!! Love this place."

Just came back from Peru and
missed the food... Warique brings real Peruvian food. Loved the Tacu Tacu and the Fish Ceviche."

What a great find! Warique hasn't
been discovered by the masses quite yet, but I am sure it won't take long! The food was great. The dressing on the avocado salad should be made available for sale- I would put it on everything! We also loved the ceviche! Everything was full of unique flavors and the helpings were more than generous. They even poured decent glasses of wine! I will definitely be going back to Warique very soon."

Just came back from a trip to Peru
with my boy friend and thought we would try out Warique. The food was delicious! We had taken a cooking class in Peru and decided to order the dished we had made to taste the authenticity. Warique definitely makes Authentic Peruvian food! The Causa and Lomo Saltado were delicious. Portions are very very large (not unlike in Peru). service was slow and considering we were the only ones in the whole restaurant we shouldn't have has to wait as long as we did. Overall, I would recoomend."

We had to wait for our table,
place is very small and there was no bar where we could have a drink and wait for our table. Food was ok, not as good as we were told....not going back to this place"

The restaurant is adorable,
typical of a neighborhood spot on the UWS. The food was very enjoyable, completely typical of Peru! The service left a lot to be desired. I was there on a Sunday night so maybe it was not their full-time staff, but food took a very long time to arrive, utensils were then missing once food was served, and we constantly had to ask for more water. I would still try it again and see if we just had a off-experience."

We really enjoyed the Ceviche, the
Anticuchos, and Lomo Saltado con Tacu Tacu."

This restaurant is a wonderful
addition to the neighborhood. Their cerviche and fried calamari are perfect. The restaurant is lovely, small and very welcoming. Their food presentation shows real attention to details and to aesthetics. One night last week I dined there with a a friend who'd never tasted cerviche and was reluctant to order it. We asked if it would be possible to try a taste and out came a tiny version of their full cerviche plate including a slice of sweet potato, a tiny serving of white beans and some crunchy nuts. My friend was wowed! I'm wishing them a long, successful life in our neighborhood."

Delicious, tasty food. Had the
ceviche, roasted chicken, pan fried corvina. Wonderful flavors, though the cut and texture of fish in ceviche was bit chunky. The Peruvian roasted chicken, must-have delicious, and the pan-fried fish, OK with flavorful accompaniments. Friendly but slow service. Place seemed to lack energy for a quiet Wednesday night - but I would come back again to explore the menu further. My first time here, and it was promising."
