La Mar Cebicheria Peruana Ratings and Reviews
We were really disappointed with our visit to La Mer. The food was average (Fresca or Pasion is better!) and we really upset with our waiter. We sat at a table surrounded by other patrons. Each table around us (there were 4) were given a special cocktail to begin with and empanadas, compliments of the chef. We were the only table who did not receive the special "gift" or treatment. It was offensive to us. Not because we wanted anything for free, but because it was rude. We spent $250 for 3 people (one is a child) and didn't get the same special treatment? If you give to one special table that is acceptable, but when you are giving to the entire place and excluding one table- it is insulting.
Simply outstanding. The food is out of this world. Peruvian food is in a different league, that I knew from my visits to Lima, but to have a Lima-quality restaurant in such a great location in San Francisco is a real treat. This is among the best restaurants in the city and it is not that expensive. Not for what you get. The waiters could be more knowledgeable of Peruvian food and ingredients. The place is also loud. But overall, the best meal I have had in San Francisco in a long time.
It is always a treat to eat at La Mar.. Peruvian food reminds me so much of French cuisine because of the many flavors that can be found in the food.. It's our own Americana cuisine and it is fantastic, flavorful and muy delicioso.. Highly recommend this place..
Our table for 4 was perfect, though we weren't able to sit outside, inside by the window was great. The menu and drink list were new and diverse, lots of great choices. Food was even more excellent. I would definitely go back and highly recommend. It was a little noisy for my tastes, but we did fine.
We happened upon this restaurant by accident and were intrigued by both the menu and the ambiance. It was a beautiful fall day, so we elected to sit on the patio with it's lovely view of some boats and the water. We love ceviche, which is a specialty, and shared several kinds as well as some delicious salads. Their complimentary potato chip basket with assorted dips was fabulous! We are returning in a few weeks with friends for dinner and can't wait!
Excellent food in a beautiful space. The empanadas are delicious and the chicken on a skewer is the best I've ever had. The space is nicely designed with different rooms, so the 'lively' bar scene doesn't overpower the dinner space. Only dig is the wine was overpriced; there was only one glass on offer under $10. Bring your own bottle.
I've been here for both a work happy hour at the bar (very lively, fun, affordable cocktails, and yummy terra chips!) as well as a weekday birthday lunch with my mother, where we dined al fresco. The service was extremely attentive, the ceviche fresh and tasty, and the terrace fantastic. It was a little on the pricier side but I would definitely come back.
Sunday lunch on a warm sunny day. The back deck is a great place to enjoy the weather - it was actually too warm in the direct sun. Service was very welcoming and friendly. Food was interesting albeit not completely successful. Tasting dishes (several varieties of the same type, e.g. ceviches, causas, dessert) are the way to go. Good wine list.
My first introduction to Peruvian cuisine. The head waiter was a great help. I was with my daughters and we had a wonderful time. We all agreed the food was delicious. It was very festive and only on a Thursday night. I need to go back to SF soon and try more of the menu. Thank you for a special time. Mark
Ceviche was spectacular. Seasonings were amazing. My only issue was the pacing. Our first courses came lickety-split, and then we waited at least 1/2 an hour after finishing those for our main courses (2 of which were salads). Fortunately, we were with friends we hadn't seen in a while, so we had plenty to talk about. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the food and wines, but he also disappeared between courses.
Dinner started off pleasant enough. Our server was Shane who was knowledgeable about the menu and offered good suggestions. The restaurant is pricey but the food is really good. I highly recommend the Arroz Criollo and Cebiche Chalaco. While waiting for the food we asked our waiter for bread. He appeared to find this to be a strange request but nevertheless asked the kitchen. A couple of minutes later he returned with what appeared to be bread chips. The pieces of bread looked and tasted like croutons and were the size of silver dollars. We received four pieces. We all looked and wondered “can they spare a little bread?” so we asked for more. We pointed out how small the “bread” was and our waiter brought more out. We received four more
This was my second time at the restaurant, but the first time out on the deck for lunch on a fine October SF day. It was fabulous in all ways. The variety, freshness, taste, and presentation of the ceviche was fantastic. My Apocolipto cocktail was a wonderful rye drink. All staff were quite attentive. The lunch time crowd that included several tables of only women was very nicely dressed. This is one of the best outdoor lunch spots in the city.
The food was fabulous. I took my girlfriend there for her 50th birthday lunch. It was our first time so we shared the ceviche sampler, empanada sampler and arroz crillo. The food was fabulous and so was our server. We topped off our amazing lunch with the dessert sampler! Just the perfect amount of food with leftover arroz crillo for her to take home and savor later! We plan to come back with our spouses, family and friends! Until next time La Mar!!!
I love Peruvian food because I was born eating it. Every time I have been to La Mar I had a good experience. Unfortunately, this last time I was a bit disappointed. The disappointment was mostly for my friend who was excited to try this restaurant the first time. She asked the waiter for the information of a drink she thought she might like, he said he didn't know and he'd ask at the bar for more info, without even clarifying he ordered the drink for her. Very bad I thought!! She accepted the drink just because she is polite and didn't want to cause any inconvenience. Then when we got our main entry from the seafood section, her Arroz jugoso, that contains seafood, was terrible. The muscles were very smelly. Yuck!! I hope La Mar improves...
It was about time someone decided to elevate Peruvian Food to the level that Gaston Acurio has in all his restaurants around the world.
I have always felt that Peruvian cuisine needed to be discovered because it really is a feast for the senses, and Gaston Acurio does it justice.
My cat-like reflexes allowed me to avoid a pisco sour spilled across the table by a server, but that was the only hiccup of the evening.
I ordered the empanadas de tamalito verde then the arroz criollo. Food was A+.
The room was full of energy, and I cannot recommend La Mar enough.
Even though we arrived almost an hour late for our reservation because of traffic and the restaurant was packed, the hostess was gracious and accommodating. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was delicious though my halibut entree was quite small. Overall, this restaurant has a high energy and fun atmosphere.
La Mar is great for a special occasion. Though prices are medium-to-high, it is well worth it for the excellent food and great ambiance. The terrace is especially beautiful, but make a 5:30 reservation if you want to be sure you're seated there. Make sure you try their ceviche classico (excellent!) and the carne anticucho. They make an outstanding pisco sour, as well as other good cocktails.
