Mistura Ratings and Reviews
Bottom Line: Terrific food but if you're inside, it is LOUD.
We were looking for something different at the end of Thanksgiving weekend and this spot really delivered. The preparations (seabass and short ribs) were creative, outstanding and presentation was really very nice. The wait staff were helpful, water service was excellent and appropriately attentive. Dessert was only okay but did not spoil the evening at all. We would definitely return but if given the opportunity to eat outside, we would take it. I feel sorry for the staff having to endure what must be close to OSHA-violating noise. With attention to the noise, this could go from a fun but frenetic evening to an oasis.
We went to Mistura for a family birthday dinner. We had a great time. We opted to eat outside (in late November) with the patio heaters. When we first arrived inside was quiet, but by the time we left we were glad we opted for outside as the dining room was quite lively. Good food, attentive, but not overbearing, staff. It was a lovely evening.
Originally went because it was one of the few restaurants open on Thanksgiving. Was pleasantly surprised as the food was creative with a Peruvian and really delicious. I would imagine on a regular day, there would be even more choices. Comfortable ambiance.
Communication breakdown. Open Table confirmation and call from restaurant failed to mention that the regular menu was unavailable. Holiday menu was good quality, but my five ravioli were not up to my family’s lamb dish. The only thing Peruvian was my bottle of beer. I would have left, but it was Thanksgiving.
I’ve been to Mistura several times and it’s generally been a delightful experience. On our most recent time though, the service was lackluster. The servers were friendly and kind, but overall inattentive. Took quite awhile for anyone to help us and we were one of three tables so it wasn’t as if it were terribly busy. We were brought the wrong wine, and it also seemed as if servers were rushing tables to leave by bringing checks early and doing cleaning projects. The food was fabulous, but your service definitely needs work.
My wife and I were in town for an event at a winery and she found Mistura. The menu seemed unique and so many dishes sounded yummy. The alpaca carpaccio was good a little to limy. I would have perfected to taste the meat flavor a little more. The diver scallops were also good but the wood fire grill over powered the delicate scallops. Third we tried the octopus. Same issue with the smoke overpowering. Then finished with the churros and even they were idly tough... not crunchy... not chewy... just oddly dense. I would like to give them a second try because I really wanted to like them but I’d recommend trying their beef or maybe empanadas.
Very enjoyable- told our waiter we didn't know how to order from the menu. He took care of the meal, from an appetizer plate to a wonderful fish entree which we shared, to dessert.
Price seemed very fair for the quality of the food.
We have been to Peru before, and felt the food very much reflected the cuisine of the country.
Big surprise for Paso Robles!
Wow! We were visiting Paso Robles for a weekend. We had 2 dinners downtown and where highly disappointed at the service. Maybe it was the change in ownership? But we met a lovely couple in town who recommended Mistura. Lovely restaurant!!! The service was very attentive and the food was extraordinary. Delicious, fresh, lovely presentation!!! If I had to do it over again, I would have eaten here all 3 nights. The menu is large enough that I'd never have to repeat and would enjoy trying the other dishes. We will be back!!!!
Had a 730 reservation. Arrived on time to be told it would be a 20 min wait for us to be seated in the dining room. Hosts desperately needed training on how to handle the situation. They were not apologetic or engaged. After waiting 20 minutes a very nice server noticed us and apologized for the situation. He graciously provided a round of drinks and a complimentary appetizer. We were actually seated 30 minutes late. The restaurant seemed chaotic -- like they were overwhelmed. Menu was very interesting but food was just so-so. The nice server is the only reason for the "fair" rating. He went out of his way to help and apologize.
The food is always very good. On a busy Saturday the noise level was very high making hard to have a conversation among four people. Service a bit slow. Too bad they stopped serving the Peruvian potato chips and dipping sauce. It was a treat. We will be back for sure in a quieter evening.
Food wasn't bad but it didn't meet our expectations especially compared to other pricey Peruvian restaurants. The Señor Lomo was tasty, however the beef was overcooked . The Seco was generous but should have included rice to go with the beans and sauce. There was something missing in the Escabeche and the Causitas were probably the best.
Other negatives: 22% added tip. No shared plates and no split checks.
We are Peruvians, very tough critics of restaurants, particularly those abroad. From all restaurant we've visited outside Peru, Mistura raises to the top, both for authenticity and creativity: this is the only one in the US that will do well in Lima, where competition is fierce, and restaurants need to be in great shape to remain above background. We dined on two consecutive nights, sampling well the appetizer and main course dishes. We were very impressed at the high technical quality of the preparations, which speak faithfully to the ingredients and flavors of Peruvian cuisine (mostly coastal). Yet, they allow for well-thought departures that enrich each dish, making it special. If I lived in the Bay Area, I'd definitely make a special trip to Paso to visit this gem of a restaurant, hands-down the best Peruvian place in the US.
