Conveniently located near the Arclight Hollywood. Food is amazing and service is friendly and impeccable and did I mention the Pisco sours? Love this place.

Fun place to enjoy a drink in a sexy setting. Its a more modern take on Peruvian so slightly different than the mom and pop restaurants I typically go to for my Lomo Soltado, but for the event and occasion this place was ideal. Good service and clean environment.

The food was awesome! However, the hostess kept trying to pawn us off to The Parker Room next door. :( She did not make us feel welcomed! Our table wasn’t ready yet so we did wait at The Parker Room however we were there to try the Peruvian food. This is not a good way for the owner to encourage patrons to visit their other restaurant next door if that was their intent.

This is one of our favorite restaurants and we always have impeccable service and delicious food. Highly recommendable for dinner before a movie at the Archlight. The seafood and rice dish is one of my favorites.

We were standing at the entrance for several minutes. Servers were standing by the bar looking at us trying to figure out where to seat us. It was 3/4 empty. It was very noisy with loud music, it was difficult to listen to my friend speaking. It was cold atmosphere.

Iur server, he was very friendly and helpful. It's not a place to go for dinner. Maybe for happy hour.

I loved this place! We shared 3 entrees, dried plantains and brussel sprouts, and my vegetarian daughter had an excellent entree just for her. Out waiter, Jonathan, made great suggestions, and they offered a 10% discount when they realized we were headed to see Hamilton at the Pantages Theatre! The food was excellent! We shared lamb, braised short ribs and halibut. Outstanding!

We went there with 6 after seeing Hamilton only a few blocks away. Its a comfortable environment, the service was great (5:30 so that early) and i'd give it the way thumbs up for beautiful delicious interesting food! Served family style! Very good! We had vegetarians, meat lovers, and low carb dieters. All we so happy!! And everyone could talk easily, too. I also liked that it was casually comfortable. Awesome!!!!

Everything was fantastic. Great food! I would simply recommend they store their red wine bottles in a cool area or wine fridge. Bottles came to the table warm to the touch. Had to put ice in glass just to get to room temp.

This was one of the worst dinner experiences We have ever had. We ordered three items and only got one. Finally, after waiting 70 minutes we left because we had a movie at the Arc Light we had tickets for. The one item we got tasted great, but that's it. We walked out hungry and frustrated. The worst service ever. They wouldn't even comp the one item we got. They said "oh, to write that off I would have to get approval of the manager and he's too busy right now." He certainly wasn't busy cooking, that's for sure! So, we left and walked up a block and got a couple of burritos from Chipotle and ate them in the back row of the theatre.

Horrible, horrible service and will never ever go back. Buyer beware.

We were visiting our son and wanted to go to a place we had heard good things about but had never been to. This was SOOOO good. I wish I could remember the name of our entree, but we all got the same thing and it was FABULOUS! Our waitress was delightful, our appetizers were delicious and we all had drinks that were new to me and really really good. The ice cream dessert was also yummy. We sat outside which made it a little noisy when a motorcycle went by, but all in all it was a delightful experience.
Can't wait to get back to LA and go again!

Great authentic Peruvian food. Portions of the popular dishes are a little small, but the taste is on par with what you would get in Peru. We had pisco sour, ceviche mixto, papa la huancaina, anticuchos de corazon, lomo saltado, aji de gallina and picarones. All pretty spot-on... the pisco sour was almost as good as mine. :-) Restaurant is casual dining, service is great and the atmosphere is ok. Doors remain open, so you hear all the traffic and see everything that goes on outside. For some, that may be a good thing. For me, I prefer to focus on the company I'm with and the food and not so much on people watching (not that there's a whole lot outside that would be appealing).

Delicious and good quality for every time, friendly but unobtrusive service, great wine/cocktail options, and a nice get laid-back environment. Los Balcones is a more upscale version of the famous hole-in-the-wall Peruvian restaurant further south on Vine St.

loved Jaime our waiter he was extremely patient, on top of everyone and knew Spanish which was another bonus for my Peruvian parents he honestly knew every ingredient and recommended the best plates on the menu :) and explained how it is prepared in the back:) and would always ask politely if the chefs are able to substitute an ingredient 🥂chicha drink was sweet and delicious and the fish I highly recommend if you enjoy seafood rather than the octopus and chicken which is tender but spicy 🌶 and the lamb was Amazing!!! Served with sliced seasoned onions on top
I surely recommend this location for Peruvian food and dessert 🍨 such as the Picarones and lucuma together YUM!

This restaurant never disappoints when it comes to presenting close to authentic Peruvian cuisines. Wish it had more of a food selection, nevertheless there is a variety and the quality is good. Service is acceptable. Parking can be found on the street or Arclight theater garage. Would recommend a lomo saltado and pisco sour.
