Love this place. I am gluten-free and they note this on their menu which is reassuring that they serve food that won’t affect me. Service always good. Food hot. Had pumpkin soup....delicious with a sneaky hint for heat! Empanadas are fantastic and favorite dish is chicken arepas! Highly recommend, this is on our regular rotation of restaurants!

Wonderful service and delicious food. The empanada sampler was a great appetizer for our group of 4 to share - the Argentinian chicken were my favorite. I had the Seco de Chivo for my main course, which was so flavorful and so tender that the meat just fell apart with a fork. We will definitely be coming back

The food was good, but for the price, it didn’t wow us. Flank steak was tough. However, the empanadas were excellent. Servers were very nice, but service itself was very slow. It took a long time to get bread and then our 1 appetizer. We were a party of 5; 4 adults and one older child. We were the first party to be seated for dinner (Friday night). Restaurant filled up quickly after that. We may try for lunch sometime, but I’m not sure we will go back on a weekend for dinner.

The food and service was excellent! The Lomo Soltado was just as good, if not better, than what we had on a recent trip to Peru!

The food was not good at all. The ceviche was basically shrimp soaking in mayonnaise and the “Peruvian Picante” entree tasted like shellfish in peanut sauce— it was inedible. Restaurant smelled like mold inside. Would definitely not got back.

Great food, service, and ambiance. Our family has a variety of dietary restriction and this restaurant is one of very few that can satisfy all of their needs. With so many great restaurants in town, this one is truly unique. Without a doubt, we will be back.

the reason I didn't give a great review is that I think I accidently ordered the wrong things. The mushroom dip with the bread was excellent, and anticipated great things afterward. Great things came, but unfortunately, I felt like I was the only one at my table that didn't order them. I tasted my co-diners' dishes and they were all excellent with the exception of my boyfriends soup. They both ordered different types of steak as their entrées.
My dish was supposed to be slightly spicy, but it was on the hotter end of medium spicy, and I didn't taste the cheese that it was supposed to have in it. I tasted my mom's cake and it was so good, I got a piece for myself and my boyfriend to share, but unfortunately, we appeared to be given the smallest sliver they could have possibly had.

The service was great. The food was very good, tropical ceviche was out of this world and the plantain empanadas were fantastic! Everything is fresh and light, truly a great place.

Was there to have a catch up dinner with a friend. Had a reservation and we were sitter right away. Service was good and the food was excellent. My friends and I each ordered the Skirt Steak. We also ordered 2 different Empanada Appetizers, both were very good.

Will definitely go back again.

Delicious! Unique flavors enhanced each dish. Lots of selections for anyone with a gluten intolerance. Gluten free items are clearly indicated on the menu.
I had a fantastic taste tour of South America: Ecuadorian, Peruvian, and Argentinean items all in one evening.
