We were there to treat our friends one from another country and one from another city. They loved food and everything!

Once you find your way to the Cabra express elevator , it's smooth sailing. We went for brunch on a Sunday morning and Cabra has a eclectic vibe and a fabulous view. We had the smoked salmon dip, sea bass ceviche, shrimp, sweet potato donuts, chocolate mousse, fritters and grilled peppers. Loved it all and left nothing behind. Just the right blend of seasoning and not masking the flavors of the food.

After months of trying to get into Cabra, I was quite disappointed by the food. The environment is very cool, but food was mundane and not all that tasty. I would not recommend and probably will not go back.

The food at Cabra was outstanding. The ambience was good, but it was too loud for my liking.

I would only recommend Cabra for drinks. The food is decent - nothing special but be prepared for snack sizes. The food portions were ridiculously small for the price. We were expecting to spend a bit of money here but for what we got, we wanted to eat another dinner afterwords. To top it all off, the bathrooms were disgusting. For the amount of money we paid here to be skimped on food, I would at least expect a clean bathroom.

Food was delicious and they were accommodating about menu changes. Would’ve had a 5 but my husbands meat dish was tough. Fun and loud vibe. Great bar

We had a group of five people so we cold try lots of things at this restaurant, which specializes in sharing. The food was overall very good. The ceviches were good but quite small. The star items we had were the goat empanadas, the pork shank, and the whole fish (which was red snapper that evening). They have some interesting drinks, I can recommend the Alpaca My Bag. The service was very good, the place good very loud and energetic as it filled up, and the environment is trendy but comfortable. It was an expensive meal but we had a very good time and enjoyed the food.

The classic ceviche was the highlight of the meal, but overall none of the flavors were of the high quality I've come to expect from Izzard's other restaurants, and with a recent meal at Girl and the Goat offering larger, tastier dishes, better cocktails and quieter ambience for an almost comparable price, I'll probably skip Cabra next time around.

We're big Stephanie Izard fans, and have been wanting to get over to Cabra. It was worth the wait. We enjoyed the offerings, and while you might think you need a lot of small plates, we didn't walk away hungry. If you like ceviche, then this is your joint. Definitely will be back, but probably in the summer.

We dined at dinner last night at Cabra (Peruvian), which is located on the top floor of a hotel. Our food was quite good, reasonably priced and our waiter was knowledgeable and helpful. The menu is designed to encourage sharing dishes and the three of us shared all our dishes. The only drawback was that the restaurant is quite noisy (if you are sitting inside at dinner).

the food is delicious but the portions are really small (even for small plates) given the price. Second time here and the service just isn't great. Not sure I would come back -

lunch only - poor menu selection with very little focus on true Peruvian dishes. The server described it as "American". Starters were delicious with main courses just about acceptable

The food is absolutely amazing.
However, the biggest part of the night that I remember, aside from the fantastic food, was the noise. I literally could not hear the waiter speaking to us, that's how loud it was. He was 2 feet away from my face and I still couldn't hear him.
