We made reservations for an early birthday dinner. For Starters I hate to write Bad Reviews but unfortunately I must. First of all when our waitress first sat us down she asked us if we wanted Sparkling or Tap Water? We asked for Tap and never received our water until our appetizers arrived!
Next we started noticing that they were swapping out Tables and Chairs in between everyone’s meal. Which I found was very unusual! It was definitely an inconvenience but we still gave them the benefit of the doubt. The owners sister “Victoria” eventually came by and apologized and later provided us with Complimentary Drinks! Which was very nice to ease the pain.
Afterwards our waitress was later swapped by another waitress. This particular waitress was No Where to be found. We wanted to order another round of drinks as well as our Entree’s but unfortunately she was still MIA!
Anyway eventually I spoke to Victoria and she was more than happy to take our order. Though our food and drinks came out rather rapidly. It still wasn’t enough to ease the painful experience! The food was edible the least but the drinks were Amazing!
Anyway $500 later we paid and Vowed to never go back again! This restaurant definitely needs to train their staff better and be more organized. It wasn’t busy either so that should be Absolutely No Excuse! If you want True Peruvian food make a reservation with “Jora” located in Long Island City. Their Food is Amazing including the professional staff on hand.

Dined here and ordered all Tapas. All choices were AMAZING!!! Will definitely return to try the entrees. Service a bit slow but it was really packed so it makes sense.

Quite honestly I was not impressed with the service. This was my second weekend there and both times my waitresses where not checking on my table. The food is outstanding and that’s the only reason I went back a second time.

Everything about this place is outstanding except their reservation system. No matter how many times we have reserved a table we have always been made to wait for 30 odd minutes before we get a table. Again, this was always the case pré-Covid. So my humble request if for you to either stick to better operational skills to manage reservations or just make it walk-one only!

We came here the first day after phase 2 opened. The food was delicious however, the staff was not wearing masks around each other while they were setting up the outdoor are. They only wore masks when talking to the customers. Also, they should have umbrellas or some kind of shade because the sun was really strong when we were there for lunch!

Why people feel compelled to subject themselves to trendy restaurants where the noisy level is deafening and the food is mediocre at best is beyond comprehension. This is not only my opinion but also that of my two companions. We went to this restaurant on a Friday evening when live music is presented. Unfortunately, although we had a reservation, we had to accept a table close to the 2 piece band; otherwise, we were told it would be at least at 30 minute wait in spite of the reservation. The host did speak to the musicians to lower the level of the music, but it lasted for 5 minutes at most. Of course, the live music resulted in loud conversations at most of the table, leading to overwhelming noise level. The service was congenial and adequate, but we had to repeat our choices several times to our waitress because of the loud environment. The food was at best ok. It's something to say the best food was the Brussel sprouts. This place will not be seeing us again.

We didn’t wait too long for the table which was a pleasant surprise as I’ve had to wait much longer the last couple of times I’ve been there. Our server was friendly and on top of everything. The food was delicious as always.

Came in over the weekend, busy lively atmosphere. Drinks and service were OK but I was disappointed with the food. Ordered some apps, lomo saltado and tres leches; did not like the cinnamon-ny tres leches at all and the rest was just OK. I had higher expectations.

Food is simply amazing in this restaurant. You can enjoy Peruvian food and Peruvian fusion food being all options delicious. I personally recommend the Vegan Saltado. Also do not miss the Lucuma Gelato. For drinks my favorite is the Passion Pisco Sour.

We were quite disappointed by the food proposed in Baby Brasa Organic. We were expecting a higher level of gastronomy , quallity and food presentation. We both had the impression our final check was overpriced.

Unfortunately we didn’t even get to try the food.
We walked in, asked for our table and it was clear they didn’t have one for us. While they were trying to get people to leave so we could sit, we asked for a high chair but the employees looked at each other as if they had seen an alien .. they said they think they used to have one but not anymore. We had to leave.

Don’t be fooled by buying a voucher for this restaurant. They will charge you tax on full amount of meal which is like buying a coat on sale but paying tax on the presale price It totally runs up the cost of the meal. They also automatically add on 18% service charge on full price. On top of that the lomo saltado was not very good. Meat was tough.

Cramped seating next to the bar, which is also used as the overflow waiting area...made for an uncomfortable dinner where I and my guest couldn't hear each other without shouting. The food was adequate but not special, and given the prices I expected more.

Food is ok but SUBPAR does not even begin to describe the service....

We had walked in once before but left without ordering because we waited way too long to even get our order taken. We assumed this was a “one off” so we went this time to give it a try... bad idea.

You call this place to set up a reservation and nobody answers the phone (attempted several times, different days) despite the host fiddling with his personal phone nonstop when you arrive... the restaurant’s cordless phone sits right in front of him, which rings then goes to voicemail.

The waiter seemed clueless (perhaps he was new); wandering around but not actually checking on guests’ tables. Service is not slow in a relaxed way but rather painfully slow, even though the restaurant was not overly busy — they had a few tables open throughout our visit.

We arrived 10mins prior to our reservation, that we finally made thru OpenTable, and waited 20 minutes once seated, to get our drinks. The food was generally tasty but luke warm: probably due to the snail’s pace of delivery.

They cancelled our reservation, hours after we left, for some unknown reason —- maybe to avoid poor reviews? So I had to email OpenTable to reinstate it so I could warn others: avoid this place! To top it off, my credit card was authorized several times (multiple holds placed) but luckily it seems only one charge stuck.
