    The best dining experience I have had in a while. Everyone was pleasant and on top of things. Started with lovely drinks in the lounge and then on to our table for absolutely delicious appetizers and dinner. Our visitor from Spain was very happily impressed as well!

    First time diners for a 2 birthdays celebration dinner. Started with the Rompe Niels ceviche appetizer which was a wonderfully mango-flavored ceviche and the Colorao cauliflower bbq flavored appetizer. We continued with the De Mi Tierra salad which was wonderfully fresh with crunchy quinoa and heirloom tomatoes. We shared the seafood paella between 4 to round out our dinner, and then enjoyed 5 - yes 5 - small desserts. They have reasonable corkage fee which worked for several of our favorite wines. We saw many additional meat and fish entrees as well as some tasty looking sushi and sashimi rolls at their Peruvian- Japanese fusion restaurant that will certainly bring us back for future lunches and dinners!

    It took almost 10 minutes for the server to approach our table. He brought our water, and it took 30 minutes for us to get anything else. He brought us our first dish, but still hadn’t brought our drinks . There was hardly anyone in the restaurant, so I’m not sure what was going on. Otherwise, the food and ambience was fantastic!

    Always great food and usually wonderful service. But this time, it was apparent that servers have been trained to clear and turn the table quickly. We had 3 shared appetizers and one shared main and drinks and dessert. Every course was delicious but if we dared take time to converse or enjoy each bite, someone would swoop in and try to take our plates. We had 4 different people try to take the main course that we had between us and were enjoying. In fact, one person laughed when we said we weren't ready to give up our plate. "one little tomato", she laughed. I mean, we were so happy to relax and catch up and it was difficult to finish a thought. When I checked my watch, only one hour had passed. Please don't make guests feel like they are lingering too long - let them savor your beautiful food!

    This is known as a Peruvian restaurant so we were anxious to try it. Everything about this restaurant exceeded any expectations! Being locals in the county, we were eager to try a restaurant we had never been to before. The waitress was very engaging, knowledgeable and helpful. The food was over the top… wonderful presentation, flavor beyond words and delicious in every way! We were five people, talking and laughing … great acoustics. In our little corner of the expansive restaurant. We could converse comfortably. The desserts were something I’ve never experienced in this area before. Unique, delightfully artistic and delicious as well. I think that this fine dining restaurant would appeal to most anyone!

    This was my first time to eat at Mistura, so I wanted to try some of the more traditional Peruvian food, which started with a Pisco Sour. That was a lot of fun (IYKYK). There is so much to choose from the menu, and the dishes are fairly substantial, so upon the recommendation of the waiter, I got one appetizer and one entree. That was more than enough food! I came to the conclusion that typical Peruvian food is a little heavy for my liking, though it tasted very good. The octopus was excellent...very tender and wonderful flavor with the tasty and different way to combine couscous and potato. The waiter was excellent, very attentive, but not overly so. He helped advise on the food and drinks. Since it was my birthday, he frequently wished me a happy birthday and brought a special birthday treat at the end. It was a very special meal, and I will definitely go back.
