Restaurant was moderately busy for a Tuesday evening. Food was good and the ceviche fresh. One of the attendees was from South America (Colombia) and classified it as good ceviche.

Dinner for 4, friends evening; menu and tastes were excellent; service excellent - we asked for an appetizer from the menu for special events (since we are planning an event there and wished to sample) - and the chef was able to prepare since we mentioned it at the beginning of our dinner.
Lomo Saltado and Aji de Gallina were classic - but I note seasoning outstanding, a bit of extra spice appreciated; the other dishes at the table all enjoyed. Always a major decision whether to choose the classic dishes or try others when we visit Mango - we usually end up combination of new/classic entrees, sharing a taste.
Ambiance is great, elements of the decor definitely reminded me of time in Peru.

We went for downtown restaurant week. Not impressed with the choice of appetizers, chicken wings or beef heart. Both main courses were great and we took home the left overs! The rice pudding was nice and although it looked tasty it was a bit disappointing. We all regret we didn’t order from the regular menu. Can’t say I’ll hurry back.

Of the half dozen times we’ve dined at Mango, this was the least impressive. The shredded chicken entree was a bit bland and was garnished with olives that seemed to clash with the dish. The service was top flight though, and it seems that Mango’s staff is the most pleasant in town. We’ll go back, and people should. Our latest experience was not par for their course; everyone has a bad day now and then.

Great food! Friendly staff! Beautiful restaurant! Get in the mood by starting with a pisco sour (the national beverage of Peru). For appetizers, try the ceviche, salmon causa, fried octopus, or empanada - all were amazing. For the main course, beef tenderloin tips with french fries (comfort food Peruvian style), shredded chicken in a mild pepper cream sauce, and fresh fish baked in slightly spicy creamy sauce - all were delicious. I've already told a few friends and can't wait to return.

We wanted to try something a little different, but experience Latin food; this was a great choice with wonderful Peruvian food choices! Love the atmosphere and bar area location. The service was excellent, timely and personable with good guidance on menu and specific description of the specials. We decided to go with sharing three small plates for dinner: Jalea Mixta which was fried calamari, shrimp and other fish served with two dipping sauces, Anticuchos which are skewers of meat served with fried yucca and roasted corn (we choice the trio: beef, chicken, and beef heart), all of which were delicious, and a special, Empanadas which were beef spiced perfectly with a perfect kick! They also had a good selection of draft and bottled beers and a good wine list. We topped things off with a banana mousse served with ice cream and toppings (fantastic). Highly recommend this restaurant as people are nice, great ambience, and fabulous food!

Myself and my Sister in law and a friend traveled from Indy to St Louis for the weekend and wanted a nice dinner place, that offered accommodations for my Celiac food restrictions. I had made contact previously with the restaurant and spoke to Heather, she was very friendly and had great suggestions ! I was not disappointed and neither were my dinner companions. It was tasty and a lovely environment! The service was on point and we really enjoyed ourselves...the only negative is that we do not, unfortunately, have one in Indianapolis. :( Will definitely be going back if and when we travel to St Louis in the future.

Creative Peruvian cuisine. Great chips and sauce to start. Food was quite good and was reasonably priced. Really enjoyed the food but the service was good and attentive except in the beginning when nobody came by our table for quite some time due to a big group hogging all the attention. The restaurant however made up for the service lapse appropriately.

Was looking forward to a wonderful meal, however the service was so poor that it ruined the meal for us. The food was wonderful, but it took 25 minutes to receive our salads and then after the salad plates were removed we waited over 25 minutes for our entrée -- had to ask for it. the excuse was given that there was a large party in front of us, we had made the reservations 2 weeks in advance will have to think hard before we return after the poor service.

We made a reservation for a group 4 days prior and were sadly disappointed. We were seated immediately, but about 30 minutes after being seated and not being seen by a server we had to get up and ask to be brought water and have our orders taken. We had a 90 minute period to eat lunch and unfortunately our food had not even been brought until over 2 hours later. We had to ask to have it put in to-go boxes. Unfortunately there didn’t seem to be any concern about the poor quality of service from anyone in the restaurant staff. I hope this feedback is helpful because the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and a lot of potential to be a wonderful place for a group meal.

The food was good. It was not particularly child-friendly, although there was a kid's menu. We had to ask for mugs to be given instead of the tall glasses (for a 3 and a 5 year old), which weren't even given with straws until we asked.
