We got the experience la mar , being honest we just like a couple of items , but overall it was ok, we paid around 280 for 2 including taxes and tips , witch I consider was expensive for what we got!
The plates were nothing special

We had the best time! We came for the Pisco Brunch and loved the whole affair -- food, music, dancing.

La Mar never disappoints. This is the most authentic Peruvian food and flavors available in the Bay Area. I’m happy to see they continue to be consistent with the quality of food and service.

I have been to Le Mar a few times at this point. I am going to go down the list. The food as always is really good. My girlfriend and I ordered the Lomo Saltado, the scallops, and the california ceviche. The ceviche is delicious and I highly recommend it. The saltado has a great spice and glaze on top of it. The scallops were good, but have definitely had better especially for the value. The ambiance is nice but the lights were flickering which was a little distracting for my beautiful date. I think my biggest bone to pick is value. Prices have definitely gone up in the last few years. We ordered 4 drinks, ceviche, lomo saltado, and scallops which ended up being around 200 dollars. I am fine paying 200 dollars, but I this meal should have been closer to 100 dollars. This is being priced close to Michelin star restaurant level without that level of cooking and service.

From the moment we walked in the door, the staff mad exert that we had an excellent experience. The service was perfect; an ideal combination of attentiveness and friendliness without being intrusive or doting.

The food was amazing. Incredible, rich flavors and depth without being fussy or gimmicky.

I normally eat here for lunch, but took my wife for dinner before a show. It was perfect and she loved it. Can’t wait to go again.

The food is always amazing; I particularly recommend the beef empanadas (you can take them as starter and share). Save room for desert, definitely, and start your lunch/dinner with a cocktail: I tasted a few and they were very delicate, not to sweet.

We were celebrating an anniversary with friends from Paris. The four of us really enjoyed the ambiance, the food was excellent, the price was good and the server (Enrique) was friendly and attentive. Would highly recommend La Mar Cebicheria Peruana.

I went to La Mar for Valentine’s Day. The food was delicious, however when I made the reservation I was not told there would be a pre fixe menu. I went in thinking we could order off the main menu and was not aware of the price we would be having to pay at the end of this. They need to advertise it’s an $85 per person pre fixe menu when making a reservation.

Was surprised to find that it was a prefix menu and that each person at the table was mandated to order and pay for the pre-fixed items, even though it was a lot of food between a party of four and we wanted to share three instead of four. The service was also very slow and not attentive, probably because it was already automatic gratuity added to the bill. Overall the experience was not what I was hoping it would be, as it was my first time at Le Mar. I will not return.

Food review: seviche was basically a bowl of red onions in a cream sauce and my short ribs were dry and overcooked.

What a trip to be here on Valentine’s Day. The ambiance was really nice. The staff was on top of any request we had. Food was delicious. And they made a big effort to cater to a vegan diet. Highly recommend this location.

The cebiche continues to be good but we did not enjoy as much the causas, empanadas nor dessert.
Service was just ok. The ratio waiter to tables is big so you keep looking for your waiter continuously.
We order a bottle of champagne and they put the bottle away from our table because they did not have enough “coolers” / ice buckets. so it was bothersome to keep asking the waiter for wine.

Any way, the overall experience at La Mar was average at the most.

Visiting from out of town, we had nothing to go on other than reading the menu outside of the restaurant and spontaneously deciding this looked so much better than where we were planning to go. Best. Decision. Ever. My only regret is knowing we can't easily return unless we fly two hours to get there. Which we potentially may do. It was that good.

We four enjoyed our cocktails and food. The service was great. I have to say I was disappointed with the 2 ceviche dishes. The flavors were wonderful, but the fish was tough, and seemed to be cut into pieces that were too large to eat in one bite. All other dishes were wonderful (the dungeness crab special, Causa Veggie, and Peru Criollo (scallops)). Our cocktails were unusual and very nice. We took a chance on a dessert to share that had the word "loco" in it and came with cotton candy, and it was surprisingly lovely (and not too sweet).

My dish was amazing and service was great. The other individual dinning with me had a complaint about the chicken empañadas. They were disappointed because they have been there multiple times and were satisfied before. Being it was my first time they wanted me to have a good experience. After telling our server she kindly gave us a dessert without having to ask! Overall good experience and would probably return.

I've been to La Mar before and never had a complaint. This time the food (both of our plates) tasted dry like it had been reheated. It was tasteless.
The ceviche was also unimpressive. For the price it was definitely not worth it !
