    They have replaced the floor heaters with overhead heaters which do not work. The food remains outstanding, especially the paella. The octopus and pork cheeks were also very good, Service is friendly. But I cannot go there without functioning heaters. Pricing is interesting--everything costs $24 or $34, wines $13 per glass.

    I love our waiter, Kevin. The service is always personal because he remembers you. The food, paella is outstanding and is enough to share.

    Pucquio offers an extraordinary dining experience. From the moment we step inside, we are greeted warmly and captivated by the cozy ambiance. The attentive staff always make us feel welcome and ensure that every detail of our dining experience is perfect. The menu at Pucquio is a testament to the culinary diversity of Peru. Carlos crafts each dish with the freshest ingredients presented beautifully. We started with the Cebiche de Pescado which was vibrant and refreshing, marinated to perfection in citrus juices with just the right amount of spice. You will want to drink the citrus juice from the plate. Make sure you eat it with a spoon! We also enjoyed the Ensalada del Huerto. For the main course, we indulged in the Lomo Saltado, a classic Peruvian stir-fry with tender strips of beef, juicy tomatoes, onions, and an incredible soy demi-glaze served with crispy fries and rice - we also added a sunny side up egg which really complemented the dish. The combination of flavors was impeccable, and the portion size was generous. The depth of flavor in this dish was remarkable, showcasing the Carlos' expertise in balancing traditional Peruvian spices. For dessert, we could not pass up the Bombitas of the sweet potato, dulce de leche, and a creme anglaise to die for. The service at Pucquio is impeccable. Kevin is attentive, knowledgeable, enthusiastic about the menu, and knows good wine. He always provides excellent recommendations and ensures our glasses are never empty. The pacing of the meal is perfect, allowing us to savor each course without feeling rushed. Overall, Pucquio is a treasure. The combination of exceptional food, delightful ambiance, and outstanding service makes it a must-visit for anyone looking to experience the best of Peruvian cuisine. Whether you are a seasoned foodie or new to Peruvian flavors, Pucquio promises an unforgettable dining experience that will leave you craving more. We cannot wait to explore more of their exquisite menu.
