Los Balcones del Peru Ratings and Reviews
I've been to the restaurant twice in January 2018. We had a great meal both times. The food is the best! Highly recommend everything we tried - the ceviche mixto with octopus (and I don't just love octopus); the anticuchos - Peruvian BBQ - the portobello is the best; the quinoa salad with roasted beets; arroz con pollo; and the grilled shrimp. And we love the ambiance of this small cozy restaurant with a great looking bar and enticing cocktails. I've just started Weight Watchers, and so many things on the menu were almost zero points - but sooo delicious. The first time we went our server was knowledgeable, attentive, helpful; the second time, not so much - inattentive, broke 3 glasses, kept clearing our water glasses, etc. However, I highly recommend this restaurant.
It was our first time coming to this restaurant and were not sure how much to order. We were also going to a show at The Pantages right after. Our server perfectly orchestrated timing and correctly guided us on how much to order. We loved our meal and the atmosphere and managed to squeeze in drinks, appetizer, entrees, desert, and coffee with time to walk 10 minutes to the theater. Well done!
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.
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!!!!
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.
