About Quenas Restaurant

We opened Quenas with the dream of presenting the wide diversity and fusion of Peruvian food, using the best and most authentic ingredients, in a modern presentation. Peruvian cuisine fuses many different ethnicities, including Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, and is increasingly being recognized as world class.

At Quenas Restaurant we’ve tried to capture the diversity of Peruvian food in our dishes. You will find a bit of everything that makes our food special, from the fresh and healthy Ceviches and Tiraditos, to the more flavor intense Lomo Saltado.

Lovely as always. Shirley and her team always deliver friendly, professional, family-style service. The food is consistently tasty - it's truly the best Peruvian Restaurant in Westchester County! The sangria is unbelievable - really packs a nice kick. I will be going back here for date night again and again...

What a wonderful selection of foods. Peruvian cuisine with a mix of Latin and Asian influences, cooked to perfection, one course tastier than the next. My companion and I, who had been here a few times, introduced my adult daughter to the restaurant, and she loved it. Service couldn't be friendlier. Prices reasonable. Food delicious.

I have gone to Quenas a few times and enjoy it more every time I go.
I have never eaten inside but the outdoor venue is very good.
The seafood appetizer and the Fried trout are excellent and don't miss out on the sangria

As always, our experience was excellent. The wait staff is always attentive and knowledgeable about everything on the menu. The food was excellent. There are many good beers and ales on the menu. We even had dessert, which is a little unusual. I have sat outside almost every time I have eaten there, even in a light rain once. I hope this restaurant continues to prosper.

Quenas is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant that serves excellent Peruvian cuisine in a lovely setting. The restaurant is family owned and operated and they genuinely care if you are having a good time and enjoying your meal. The portions are generous and there is wonderful outside seating available in good weather. I can't recommend quenas highly enough.

We were introduce to Quenas a couple years ago by friends who value good food and great ambiance. Since then, we have introduced MANY friends to this hidden gem.
Last Saturday night did not disappoint, once again. We sat outside on the patio which is delightful. Shirley and Angie are waiters/hosts who make you feel like you are enjoying dinner in their own backyard. The food is wonderful and they accommodate for allergies, limitations, etc. (my husband eats low-salt and my daughter eats gluten-free - not a problem at all... in fact they always remember this time and time again!).
We love Quenas and feel like we are on vacation every time we dine there!

One of my favorite restauants on a quiet street with a lovely backyard outdoor seating area including an outdoor bar.

Family owned and operated with very friendly and helpful staff and the food is really good Peruvian, their ceviches and other seafood dished are outstanding and their paella is the best west of Sevilla.

Small but well selected wine selection and wonderful pisco sours!

I've been coming to Quenas for a few years now. Their food is always excellent, and their home made sangria is to die for! It packs a nice kick. They have a relatively short menu which demonstrates their focus and concentration on their specialties. They offer daily specials which adds variety as well. As far as Peruvian food goes, it is a bit on the higher end $$$ however, you definitely get what you pay for!! The outdoor area is so cute for the summer. I went for date night with my boyfriend and there was a table next to us who were having girls night and were enjoying themselves as well. Do not miss this neighborhood gem!

Third time and there will be more. We were introduced to this restaurant last year and have now gone three times. They provide a consistently good product, both the quality of the food and the presentation, and the price is right. We were five people and everyone was pleased with their meals. Hard to top the value.

What a delightful place this is! I took the family there for mother's day (4 of us) and without a doubt this place easily exceeded my expectations. We ordered Choros a la Chalaca and Ceviche as appetizers for the table and they were right on. For the main course my wife had Seco de Cordero (daily special) and loved it, my two sons had Chaufa de Carne and a mixed seafood plater and I had the Tacu Tacu Encebolloado. All the dishes were well presented, generous and oh! so tasty. We very rarely order deserts but we made an exception and ordered Picarones and Churros and they were very good if only a bit too sweet. The service was very friendly and attentive and the prices were very reasonable given the high quality of the food served. The place is small so it gets crowded and noisy fairly quickly but I am told that they have outdoor seating in the back weather permitting.
Quenas was well worth the 45 minute drive from my house to Harrison NY (my childhood neighborhood) and we will definitely return again and again...

We were looking for a nice place before a concert at the Capital Theatre and decided to try this after reading reviews on line. What a great find!!! The food is presented so beautifully and is absolutely delicious. We tried empanadas, tamal and paella and loved each selection - accompanied by very lovely sangria. We will be back again and again and again!!
