The food, as usual, was wonderful! Had (as usual) a seafood paella. A bit disappointed that they are no longer incorporating squid ink into the rice, but - that aside- the meal was up to its usual great standards!
We celebrated our third anniversary with a trip to Half Moon Bay. I wanted to find just the right place for a special meal and La Costanera delivered. The view was spectacular, the service warm and attentive but not hovering, and the food, culinary art. La Costanera was offering a prixe fix menu that evening with several choices for the first two courses, a amuse to start, cava, and a trio of desserts. I had cebiche and osso bucho. My husband had lamb. The meat was so tender and flavorful. Everything was wonderfully seasoned and beautifully presented. (We took pictures of each course.)
Have eaten here several times, and always delicious! Beautiful views with the sunset.
Great food and service. Seating not comfortable. Chairs uncomfortable, lighting too bright. Felt cramped.
We truly enjoy coming here. The food is wonderful and reminds us of our visits to Peru. The Pisco Sour is tasty and fun. Get there early enough to enjoy a cocktail while watching the sunset over the ocean - the view is spectacular!
Dinner was fantastic. The food, the service, the atmosphere - everything was great. Our waiter was very attentive. The food was delicious - it was not easy to pick a favorite. I will definitely be coming back.
Great birthday dinner!
This was my second time at La Costanara. The food was very good with, for me, the right level of heat. However, our reservation was for 6:15 and it was almost 7:00 before we were seated. The staff was apologetic and gave us champagne to sip while we waited. We were there with some friends and because I made the reservations, illogically, I felt responsible for them having to wait. Jerry Seinfeld's episode about the purpose of a reservation kept popping into my mind throughout the wait.
The staffs' reason for our wait was that nobody was leaving as they should. I could buy that for a couple of tables, but literally only one couple left the first 40 minutes we waited. Obviously, the entire restaurant full of guests did not decide to sit extra long over dessert and coffee -- they planned poorly that evening.
Bottom line, the food is very good, worth the drive but don't expect to be seated on time.
I love the location and amazing views. Unfortunately the food fell a bit short of our expectations. I will give it another chance in the future but at this point I would highly recommend it for a drink but not a meal.
Great for first date.
The food was extremely creative, fun and delicious. There were small plates to try out for the table in addition to entrees. The cookies are so yummy! There are 'hard surfaces' all around so the noise level is a bit high. But good if you like a high energy place. Recommend!
Wonderful Peruvian food. Pleasant, informed, unhurried service. Gorgeous view.
Wonderful food, beautiful setting, responsive staff.
Excellent food, good choices, grilled octopus was a little chewy this time, yucca balls are the bomb!
