Beautiful meal! We enjoyed the shared plate appetizers and the main courses were flavorful and delicious. The highlight was the gelato prepared at table side, which was the perfect ending to a lovely meal. Although the dining room is large and the tables are fairly close together, the noise level is very low and conversation from the next table nearly non-existent. Of course, we were concentrating on the food! Service was attentive and we were not rushed in the least. Will return again and again.

The presentation of our meals was quite nice. Everything that was ordered at our table was a hit. The service was good and unobtrusive. A bit pricey but authentic Peruvian food. Not surprised Mistura was voted best to represent U.S. for traditional Peruvian food.

The food was amazing. The sea bass was served on a bed of Peruvian vegetables that had unique texture and taste. There was a perfect balance between the spice and the subtle taste of the fish. I would have rated it five stars if the price of the meal has been lower. Wine was $11-16 per glass and the whole meal of two main course, two glasses of wine and one sparkling water was $120 once tax and tip was included.

Outstanding. I had out of town guests and wanted to try. Was not disappointed. Nor were they. Service was outstanding, food superior...and so it goes. Only down side was guests were placed close to us who were wearing cologne that was so overwhelming it interfered with the food. The smell, not the taste. It was very difficult to decide what to order.

From the moment you walk in, you know this place is special. The ambiance is something you would expect from a fine dining establishment in a large city. The food, OH the food! So, so good. I highly recommend the filet mignon dish and the lamb dish. Impeccably prepared and seasoned to perfection. You can't go wrong with either of those options.

Service was noticeably slow. We were looking for our server too much. $150 wasnt a good enough value for the dishes we ate. I eat fine dining in the county and surrounding counties frequently. I can safely say mistura has great ambience. But i would trade it all for great tasting food for the money. Im happy to pay $150 to $300 for a meal that gives me a wow factor. Not a single dish gave me that wow factor. A customer should never bite down on a shell in a lobster ravioli and the churros should be made fresh to order while my 2 were clearly stale and cold. Ive had far better churros at fast food places like el pollo locco. I recommend either lowering your prices or raising your culinary and service standards. Things cannot remain as they are if you hope to compete with other fine dining experiences in the county.

I loved this restaurant when in PASO. Even better now. The food is a 5 but service was a bit spotty. Not bad, just overwhelmed. Very authentic Peruvian food, very well cooked.

I had the wonderful fajitas. The meat was very tender- like a filet. The margaritas are delicious but a bit too pricey. My friends had fish dishes and loved them. Nice simple decor.

We had a great dinner here by sampling a number of appetizers. All delicious! I hope they get a liquor license so that we could enjoy a Pisco Sour next time.

It was a pleasant experience. The staff is very courteous and brought everything out in good order. We ordered some wine, an appetizer, 2 entrees and 2 desserts. The Conchas a la Parmesana was a baked scallop on the shell appetizer. It was really super tasty but seemed just a tad over cooked. I like my scallops super tender. My husband ordered the Senor Lomo - a filet, potato and rice with sauce dish - it was a nice sized entree and tasted delicious (I tried some). I ordered the Muy Machito - a seafood combination with rice and a white wine sauce. The flavor of my dish was spicy but not overbearing and I’d say very well balanced. My disappointment was some of the seafood items seemed over cooked. The fish was tender, shrimp ok but the rest of the shellfish was a bit over cooked for my taste. The calamari rings were very chewy. After dinner my husband ordered La Limena which he loved. It’s a Peruvian rice pudding dessert. I ordered the mango creme brûlée. It had a good flavor and it was interesting because they caramelized the sugar table side which was super fun. The only weird thing was the custard was cold with a hot caramelized sugar top. It was a bit pricy but we knew that going in that it would be.

So exciting to find a Peruvian restaurant in SLO and one with such an excellent menu. The quinoa salads were delicious and super healthy. Loved the Papas a la Huacaina and the empanadas. This is our favorite place to eat now!

The food here is amazing. Great tasting and lovely to look at. A real work of art. I didn't care for the front room. Would have preferred to be in the bar area but apparently, all tables were reserved, even though I had reservations for five. However, fabulous food made up for it.

You have to get the Lomo Saltado. It’s fantastic. My husband and I have tried a number of items here on three different occasions, and all were pretty tasty. The one item I just can’t get off my mind is the Lomo Saltado; it has such amazing flavor. Get it!!!

Tasty ceviche and appetizers, the main we tried was well prepared but I felt the price was high for this area, as well as for the dish. I hope this restaurant survives as I think the food quality and variety is great. But it's SLO, not San Francisco, so I'm hopeful they get enough consistent business to make it.

Really good food (lomo saltado is outstanding), but the service needs improving. Our waiter was friendly and polite, but never checked to see if we needed anything during the meal, etc. No hostess to seat us when we arrived. The restaurant is fairly new, so maybe they’re still working things out.

My family and I went here twice during a vacation. The food is truly first-rate; some of it quite innovative, some more traditional -- and very well executed in either case. Do check out some of the excellent appetizers, not just the main courses! The service was extremely attentive, and very friendly. This is a gem.

Absolutely delicious lunch and the waiter was superb! My only concern was a group next to us, not that they were loud, but the leader of the group was carrying a dog around with her. I witnessed the dog lean over and lick the top of one of the diner tables, but no one was seated there. Are dogs regularly allowed in the restaurant?

We ordered their version of a filet mignon stir fry. The meat was definitely not a filet. So we paid $35 for tough , chewy meat that was probably sirloin tips. Big disappointment. This is a great place to go to have your wallet thinned for all portions of food that at best was mediocre.
