Overall 3food 3service 3ambience 4

Had a 7.30p reservation for a Saturday night (2/16). We were seated immediately, given menus, waters brought to table, and drink order placed. It seemed to take about 15 minutes for them to arrive. In fact, we ordered appetizers and mains and received the appetizers before we received our drinks. BUT when we got the drinks, they were great! My GF got the Coconut Margarita and I got the Cholo Fresco, and we ended up reordering them, too (both times we ordered drinks, it took 15-20 minutes for them to arrive). I wish I could say everything else was great, but it wasn't. For appetizers, we ordered the Chicken Empanadas and the Papa a la Huancaina. The Chicken Empanadas tasted good, but they were luke-warm. The Papa a la Huancaina were COLD. It's like both dishes had been sitting close to but not quite under a heat lamp. For the mains, my GF got the Amazon Chaufa. REALLY bland, and also not very warm. I got the Lomo Saltado, which was pretty decent, and surprisingly, hot. Since this was our first time here, we figured we'd try dessert, too, so we got the Tres Leches. The sponge cake wasn't spongy, it has the consistency of a cake that was frozen, thawed out, refrigerated, and then left at room temperature. It didn't soak up the sweet milk at all, so dessert was essentially non-spongy sponge cake in a pool of sweet liquid. And all of that was around $180 (tip included). All in all, a pretty disappointing experience. You'd think on a busy Saturday night, they'd have more than one bartender (maybe they did, but it seemed like they only had one). And the quality-of-food-to-price ratio was WAY off. For that amount of money, I expect a lot more.

My experience was great- service was quick, food was delicious and we were able to use a pulsd deal on a full dinner for $60 including an appetizer, two entrees, a side, a dessert, and two cocktails. The place is super cozy (so not big, but that’s what makes it so romantic and perfect for date.)
My only issue which is silly, is that they marked my reservation as cancelled when we were on time and kept our reservation. But no biggie. I would go back :)

Went for a late lunch. Service slow, but the place wasn't busy. Worse than slow, really. Inattentive, no table-side manner. At these prices, you expect better. And what's with the hanging plants? What a nuisance! Good food, but won't go back.

This restaurant is surely not a cozy type but a very much lively one.
When I arrived, there were people dancing in between tables.
If you want a festive feel, please go! The service could be a little slow but the food and drinks were fantastic.

The food was very good. We were still eating our entrees when the main course arrived. The hostess originally sat us at the front door under the speakers. It was impossible to have a conversation. The music level was way too high. We asked to me moved to another table which was a little better but was still too loud and not appropriate for a dinner environment.

Not returning. We had a reservation for 3 people, and were informed when we arrived that our table was outside. It was chilly out, so we declined and asked for inside. We were informed that all inside tables were reserved. Yet we had a reservation too! I asked why others' reservations had precedent over ours, and why we could not have an indoor table.

The manager arrived and informed us that they assumed people would be alright with outdoors, and that if we wanted to sit indoors we would have to leave within 1 hour. Not acceptable. We left.

My boyfriend (who is Peruvian) mentioned that he has always wanted to check out this restaurant so we made a reservation here on a Friday night. We arrived at 8PM, and the scene, while lively, was relatively tame. There was live music, a super-friendly staff and a very chic crowd. By the time we left around 9:30/10, the place was really picking up and full of energy. Everything we ate was delicious and a modern take on some Peruvian classics. After visiting another bar, we returned to the spot for a late-night party where they had cleared the tables, and had a DJ with dancing. We loved it so much we even returned for brunch the following day. Highly recommend
