Puerto 27 Peruvian Kitchen & Pisco Bar Ratings and Reviews
Known for their fresh ceviches & bar, there were many Peruvian dishes to choose from. Food was very good, reasonable, and plentiful. Loved the Asian Ceviche with Tuna and the skewers. Apps were plenty with drinks for most of us "knoshers". Enjoyed this popular place overlooking the foggy sea.
A couple of colleagues and I had lunch here on a Friday afternoon away from work. The service started out OK but got slower as the meal progressed and the restaurant filled for lunch. I think there was only one waiter.
We shared the Cevice sampler which was very good. I had the vegetarian stew, which was also delicious. My companions had the paella which had bad clams or mussels in it and we had to send it back. They were very nice about it and comp'd the paella.
I would have loved to try the Pisco Sour, but we had to get back to work. I might give it another try for dinner at some point.
The view of the ocean is mesmerizing
So far, the best Peruvian food in the Bay Area. Great view, fabulous food and outstanding service. My husband, my sister and I went to Puerto 27 to celebrate my birthday; the staff and food went above and beyond our expectations, especially the manager Pedro. He was very professional and make us feel appreciated.
Chicha * MUY rica
Alfajor * delicioso
Jalea *** hay restaurants peruanos que la preparan mucho mejor
Lomo saltado *** ... papas parecian recalentadas
Pollo a la brasa NO STARS. .... MUY SECO
Espero que esta critica los ayude a mejorar como negocio....me olvidaba, el mesero Jose muy bueno, siempre se preocupo por que estuvieramos bien atendidos.
We visited Puerto 27 for brunch last weekend. Prices were reasonable and food was outstanding. We started with a ceviche served with plantain chips, really tasty and enjoyed by all. For entrees we had quite a variety of items (6 people in our group) and everyone enjoyed their food. We finished the meal with a tres leche cake that was outstanding.
I have lived in Pacifica for over a year, and live within 2 miles of Puerto 27. I would love to be able to say this is my favorite restaurant here in Pacifica, as I have had wonderful experiences here. Unfortunately, I can't because I have also had mediocre and downright lousy experiences here as well. The food can either be delightful or blah without rhyme or reason, and service is spotty with little regard to special requests from the diners. This being said, the view from the patio of Linda Mar beach in beautiful and it is a great place to grab a cocktail and a few small plates and chill at the bar.
Having lived in Peru, I know of its food. The taste reproduction is very good considering that not all of the ingredients are readily available. I just asked the waiter (married to a Peruvian) what he thought was the best and his recommendations were appreciated. The anticuchos were superb, almost as good as a street vendor's fare. I've only been there once and I plan to take others. Beware - it's a loud place. There is no sound insulation and it's hard to have a conversation.
This was my fourth time to Puerto 27 Peruvian Kitchen and Pisco Bar. The food is excellent and the servers are very attentive.
The owner was sitting at a table with several others and was obviously getting the royal treatment from the staff. Please let him know that the Christmas Carole "Silent Night" at brunch in the middle of April is a little early>>>
Different strokes I guess. The music at the restaurant is controlled by the owner through his IPhone. Guess he must have pocket dialed and didn't pay attention to what he did. Very funny!
We had been to Puerto 27 not long after they opened, and for no particular reason, hadn't returned. We have a friend who wanted Peruvian food for her birthday, so we suggested going there. We won't make that mistake again--we won't wait for a special occasion to eat there again!
Every dish was rich with unique flavors. We shared several plates, rather than each order a main course: delicious quinoa salad, one of their many fabulous ceviches, two causas--crab and ahi, yucca fries and a chocolate sponge cake for dessert. Their food highlights the best Peru has to offer and then some. The portions are plentiful enough to share and each dish has its own blend of spices that make it worthwhile to try.
The service could have been a bit better--I thought the wait for our drink order and food was long, but we enjoyed the setting sun over the ocean view while we waited, so it wasn't all bad.
I go to Puerto 27 from time to time as it is close by. The food is good and the view of the ocean from the restaurant is very good.
However, I can't call this a favorite restaurant. First, it' always almost has its act together but it never seems to actually make it. The staff frequently seem, well, distracted. I don't know if they have too many duties (i.e. tables) or if it's a training issue. But it just seems to never go as seamlessly as it should (I was recently at Delfina's, which was packed with people and the service was flawless).
Secondly, the restaurant should do something about the noise level. There may have been a time when a loud restaurant was desirable but those days are ending. It really wouldn't take much to contain the noise (again, look at what Delfina's has done).
Why does it take so long to get a drink to the table? I usually order their signature drink (Pesco Sour) and am lucky to get it by the time the food arrives. What's the deal?
Finally, the view of the ocean is great, unless the sun is right in your face and you can't get away from it. Many of the windows have "see through" screens but several of the windows are missing them.
So, I want to like this restaurant; I want to go here more often. It's always almost got its act together. But it hasn't yet.
I often bring friends and visiting co-workers and tonights service both the in the bar and in the dining room was poor. We had to keep calling our waiter for assistance on several occasions. We had to 'wait' many time just to get his attention for water / more food / drinks and dessert.
I was somewhat disappointed - I had been excited about trying Puerto 27 and am familiar with Peruvian cuisine. I found the food to be far too salty. With such varying ingredients, I expected a more nuanced taste, but everything ended up tasting the same. The side house salad, however, is a refreshing and unexpected treat. If I were to return, I would order the shrimp skewers - they felt lively and well prepared.
The service was really lacking. We were never told that the restaurant was out of plantain chips for the ceviche, the drinks took a long time to arrive at the table and the server made no recommendations or attempt to discuss the menu. I found this poor service given half our table had just told her we had never been to their restaurant, and a Peruvian menu is not easy to decipher.
The restaurant itself is beautiful, overlooking the ocean, and a dynamic layout.
The drinks were superb. The next time, I would sit on the veranda, have a cocktail and an app, and enjoy the view.
Peruvian food with a view. We are super excited to see Peruvian 27 continue to enjoy crowds on most evenings. After this restaurant has struggled for years - the Peruvian 27 shines! We are thrilled to have a wonderful restaurant with excellent food right here in Pacifica. Many compare to the other Peruvian in Montara - but for the price and atmosphere it is just perfect for us locals here. You will not be disappointed - everything we have had has been wonderfully seasoned, cooked as ordered and many suggested drinks and wine pairings have been spot on. Check this local place out.
Having lived in Pacifica for over 20 years, it's so great to see this iconic and scenic spot FINALLY get a restaurant owner to get it right. I went with a group of 5 and the raves about every plate were non-stop. (We had to ask several times for the waitress to return w/the menu!) Plus we even received a few specialities from the chef that were unexpected. Even the desserts were a hit. I have to return to work my way thru the rest of the Pisco cocktail menu too! They were all equally delicious and complimented the food perfectly.
On our last night in California my wife and I decided to stay in Pacifica, because it was close to the airport and just outside San Francisco. Prior to our arrival we made reservations at Puerto 27 due to it's great reviews and we were not disappointed, from the food to the atmosphere it was an awesome experience. The service was great and it was a pleasure to interact with the Chef. I definitely recommend Puerto 27 if in Pacifica. I wish this restaurant was in NY.
The food was beautifully presented and delicious! Everything we had was outstanding. Cocktails were amazing, seafood fresh, and sauces magnificent. We had a beach view at sunset that added to the experience, and our server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. We didn't want to leave! Will be back and maybe stay overnight at the adjoining hotel so we can linger a little longer and enjoy another cocktail or two.
Have been here many times, but this time the waiter we had was not very good. He didn't listen, seemed to have his own agenda and not very friendly. One of the busboy's reached over, placed my fork on my plate, started to remove it, and then asked "are you done?" I said NO! I believe our server's name is Daniel, so hopefully, the Manager (who is very friendly) can train the staff better. We will probably go back, because the food is good and the pisco sours and sangria are great!
Go at sunset and enjoy a spectacular view with excellent food. Our table had ceviche, duck, port and fish (branzino). All were delicious, but I think the seafood dishes were the best...especially the branzino. Our waiter was wonderful. He kept our table our table clean and was attentive without being annoying. The only negative is that it is a little pricey for the average working person, but it's a great place to go to celebrate any special occasion.
This restaurant is on the top of the list for dining in Pacifica. I have been here many times and have tried to order something different each time. The pulled pork sandwich on Dutch Crunch and the Ceviche Puerto are both wonderful. I had the strip steak salad which I found had too much salty dressing so that the lettuce was soggy. The flan is excellent.
Almost every table inside has a view of the ocean.
This restaurant has great appetizers and creative cocktails. I suggest a table near the window for its great view of the ocean. Unfortunately, we went on a very busy night. The noise level was deafening and there was constant foot traffic between the wait staff and diners due to the narrow walkway in the dining room. I can see myself returning on a weekday afternoon or early evening for the excellent appetizers and drinks. I recommend this restaurant primarily for adults. Sit on the patio, weather permitting , if you are looking for a romantic, relaxing time. The noise level was the drawback for me.
We've made our reservation almost a week in advance for a 5pm dinner for a party of 6 adults. Reservation was confirmed again a day prior to our arrival. When we arrived, we were given a small round table for 4 people when we had made the reservation for 6 adults. Then the restaurant placed 2 small tables, table that's used for 2 people, together and asked the 6 of us to fit into it. One of the table was wobbling and it was lower than the adjacent table. The restaurant tried to fix it by placing the missing foot back and to raise it. However, they didn't have enough of them and the table was slanted to one side. We were asked to accommodate with their challenges while the place was still more than 1/2 empty since it was still very early for dinner at 5pm. There were many many open tables that they were not willing to give anyone of them to us. We were treated as if we were walk-in customers while we had made our reservation way in advance. We demanded for them to put 2 medium tables, table that's used for 4 people, together for us but they refused because that will have 2 empty seats that they can use for other parties that may walk in later. It was an experience that demonstrated the hospitality of the restaurant is extremely poor. All 6 of us have agreed that all the accommodation hassles while with a reservation should have never happened when the place is nearly empty. At the same time, the food is not anything that is fantastic where it is not available in another restaurant. We agreed that this restaurant is a place that we will never go back again nor recommend anyone to go. In fact, this a place where we will highly recommend to anyone to avoid going there.
We arrived early to our reservation almost 45 minutes. The host greeted us with a smile and sat us right away. The drinks arrived in a timely fashion and were good. The ceviche was the best and glad we ordered the sampler. The waiter was very helpful with suggestions and I was satisfied with the appetizer. overall the meal was excellent and delicious. It was made even more spectacular by the view and the company we kept. Our family was satisfied and will come back to celebrate another milestone sometime soon.
What a view! What a disappointment.! Our server was cold and inattentive. Martin seemed not to like his job. The food was ordinary. In a Peruvian restaurant he recommended the hamburger. Poor service. The Bloody Mary was terrific. Have a drink and look at the ocean. Otherwise, Pass.
Fantastic food and cocktails with a beautiful view to the ocean. We did a lot of small plates, and even in a very busy restaurant we had a steady stream of tasty food on our table. It's hard to pick a favorite - the ceviches, causas, empanadas, and torquenos were all wonderful. Even dessert gave opportunities for sharing delicious food. And the sunset? Nice touch. :)
After struggling to find a parking space, the first thing that hit us as we entered the restaurant was the noise level! We could hardly have a conversation with the couple we went with sitting across the table from us. The waiter had to "lean in" to communicate with us.
