Great food. Really tasty, flavorful, and good quantity. Worth the price. I recommend the Ceviche platter with all the fish dishes and the Empanada sample platter. Was great for two people. We were full and happy by the end.

It was so loud though even though we were sitting outdoors. Not really the restaurant's fault though, but something to note if looking for a quiet, cozy place this isn't that.

Food was so good though that the overall experience was great. Second time there and will come back. I am from abroad but will want to come back again to San Fran for this restaurant.

This is always one of our favorite restaurants, but yesterday's meal was particularly outstanding. The halibut belly special was perfectly cooked and came with delicious sauces as well as a quinoa chaufa that included mushrooms, broccoli, peppers and bean sprouts. We couldn't finish it so are looking forward to enjoying it again!!

Modern Peruvian cuisine. Fresh fish and ceviches were great, good taste beef dishes. Drinks were good overall. On the pricy side with the entrees. Good experience but not amazing.

In town with some friends who had never been to a Peruvian restaurant. Food was delicious, service was fine. Atmosphere is great. I don’t mind paying high prices if it’s worth it but feel these plates are overpriced.

Deafeningly loud, almost excruciatingly so; tasty food; very good informative server; poor experience in lobby: I had a reservation through OpenTable but was seated at a bar table in a corner that could just as well have been a waiters station for water and utensils. Eventually I was moved with the remark, literally: "Oops, I put you at the wrong table." Was served a shared course and had to ask three times for service plates and utensils. This was an extremely uneven experience. I won't be going back.

This was truly one of the best dining experiences. We had outdoor seating and wasn’t sure what to expect in terms of weather. But it was enclosed on top with plenty of heaters, which was great! The view and ambiance were beautiful and the food was delicious! The service was great as well. After that experience, I really didn’t care what the bill amount was. Everything was perfect!

A great restaurant for those who are on an expense account. Good food with great ambiance, but poor value. The staff always wants to bus your dishes before you are done.

Overall, it was an excellent evening out at this restaurant. The food was very good, ambience was lively but it was too noisy making it hard for our table of 6 to hear across a wide table. I would go there again.

It’s was good but not fantastic like it was the first time we went. The halibut is amazing but it is not consistent in that some pieces were chewy and a bit of gristle. For the high price, I would not expect this to happen. The waiter was not very attentive and we had to wait a good amount for drinks, additional chips and other items, especially the check took forever. We had a female waitress last time and the service was outstanding but it was mediocre at best on this occasion. I will give it another try given it was quite good on one prior visit but it’s an expensive restaurant so I won’t continue to entertain it if it does not meet or exceed expectations

Fantastic wait staff. Very attentive and the heaters outdoor work well. The Loma Saltado was excellent. Many places make it too salty, but this was perfectly season and not "overly saucy". The calamari was grilled, which wasn't what I expected (I thought it'd be fried), so unless you like that style, I'd pass on that. The chocolate caramel cake was excellent too.

Very small portions of the food. Too many employees, up to a point that it fell like a covid party. I personally would have liked somewhat bigger portions and not being pinged by the servers every 5 minutes

The location and ambience build such a great foundation for the amazing food that's served! We chose to share plates and all tried bites of a handful of dishes, each decadent! I wouldn't normally spend so much money on dinner but it was worth the expense!

This is our 2nd visit. We also experienced La Mar in Lima, Peru a few years ago. La Mar S.F. is authentic! very good food, fresh sea food, very good presentation. Nice drink menu. Service was just short of excellent. Only downside is high noise level.

This is a great special event restaurant. Pricey, but the food quality lives up to the charge. Our server, Enrique, was fantastic - just the right amount of interaction and helped with understanding the menu and making suggestions for some in our group with special dietary needs. The ambiance is pretty high energy, and the staff graciously moved us to a different table when a boisterous party sat next to us. To me, the wine prices were exorbitant, but probably par for the course in a high end restaurant.

Overall, a wonderful experience.

Amazing! Here’s a restaurant that gets it right. The flavors and presentation of the dishes were something special. We have sought out Peruvian cuisine after visiting Peru some years ago, and this is the best we’ve had in the US. Everything was fresh and delicious. Our server was helpfully and attentive. We had four dishes and my favorite was the cebiche classico. The El Cholito cocktail is a must. We can’t wait to return.
