Excellent food. Unfortunately we weren't waited on for 15 min while others who came after us received immediate attention. Other than that the food is delicious.

Our visit was enjoyable. My only complaint was the appetizer. It was a special.: fried plantains with guacamole and crab meat. The size was decent and there were four on the plate. The amount of guacamole and crabmeat was sparse. There wasn't even enough to give it any taste.
On a positive note everyone's main course and desserts were delicious. I had the skirt steak and it was perfectly cooked and flavor able. My husband has the filet cooked on a stone and loved it.
We would definitely return!!!

I would tell them not to go on a Saturday night - way too noisy to enjoy the dinner. Otherwise it would have been lovely.

One of our favorite places. Spent the evening there for my husband's birthday. First visit for our young adult children. They also loved it.
My only complaint was the noise level. As the restaurant filled, I couldn't here my daughter across the table from me.
We will definitely return...

I frequently dine at El Sitio and the food here has always been delicious. The fillet steak is amazing! The atmosphere is quiet and cozy. Of all the wonderful restaurants in Collingswood this is my favorite that I keep returning to.

This was approximately my 3rd time here in 2018. The food is fantastic, the service on point. I have celiac disease, completely trust their menu is not going to cause me issue when items are marked GF. Can't wait to go back.
6 of us, out of 8, ordered the filet, it rivals the big steak restaurants.
Delicious.

Our second visit within the last 3 months. Appetizers came out hot and tasty both times. This time around my wife had a ribeye. It was cooked perfectly and was wonderfully tender. I had crabmeat stuffed shrimp and it very good. It was very crowded and we did have to wait a bit for our main course. However, we had good company and wine to keep us occupied. The quality of food made the wait worth it.

We dined in this restaurant because we wanted to try Peruvian food. There was only 2 or 3 items on the menu that were Peruvian. Nevertheless, the food was fine.

But the service is another story. We waited 90 minutes for our entrées. This after asking the waiter several times. Nobody bussed our table from the hors d'oeuvres until we ask someone.

I suggest trying Peruvian food somewhere else.

Got to the restaurant at 6 pm for my moms 84th birthday celebration and at that point the restaurant was not very crowded. The experience went down hill from there when our waiter turned out to not be very knowledgeable about the menu and was unable to answer simple questions. We asked if the ceviche trio appetizer was enough for several of us to share and he indicated it was not but when we saw it delivered to other tables it looked ample for 3 or 4 to share. Service went down hill from there even though we ordered a bake potato dry it was slathered in butter and the replacement took extremely long to be delivered. The icing on the cake was that one of our meals never showed up the waiter kept telling us it took longer to cook and was on its way I finally told the waiter to forget it since the rest of us were already done eating. The waiter informed us that the manager, who we never saw during the whole meal, wanted to buy us desert which we passed on and just asked if they could box up the forgotten meal to go so my son could eat dinner when we got home.

While the food was good the service was such a let down that we will never go back.

This is a noisy bustling restaurant that really does some great (and I think) authentic south american food. I had the paella which was packed with shell fish. The lobster ravioli went down very well too. Reasonable prices makes it a great Saturday night group dining choice

Good food and prompt service. I had a skirt steak special that was very good. The French fries were typical frozen fries, though still good. It was a very quiet night there (we were their only reservation on a Tuesday evening), but given the size and setup of the dining room, I could see it being loud if it is full. It was nicely located with a street view and I sat right by the front window. Prices are what I would expect to pay for what I got (seafood ravioli and steak). I would definitely return if the occasion arises.

Plantain empenades were excellent. Skirt steak was excellent. BYOB which is great. Service was so so. We didn't hear specials from waitress but we heard other tables getting a rundown of the specials. Pleasant service but not attentive in that respect. But overall, a very good experience. Would go back and happily order what I did if I did not want to try other things.
