    We were visiting my friend and choose this place for the “reunion”. Highly recommend it. We had several snacks, all of which were good. Sashimi was great. One struck us, we ordered two more - rack of lam chops! Delicious! I also ordered sea bass - one of the best I have ever had! Chef! Thank you! We bought the desert at the counter of a shop at the restaurant - Dolce De Leche, if I recall it correctly. You have to try it! Overall, it is more of Italian than Peruvian cuisine, but certainly with an interesting twist!

    Mistura is a treat for all the senses - it's tucked on the far end of Higuera street and maintains a low profile from the outside - we were struck immediately by the gorgeous interior, specifically the beautiful wall with all the green moss and different plants. The dessert display is nothing short of pure art - it was almost too hard to eat any that we chose, they were so beautiful! But they tasted as amazing as they looked. The starters we chose were all so different and bursting with flavor, the fish was so incredibly fresh and the pairings with various vegetables were well done. The main courses we tried, both fish and red meat, were delectable and generous portions. Their cocktails were also quite fun and creative and the coffee was soooo good. We had amazing service to top it all off. We are so bummed we only learned of Mistura in our last bit of time in SLO, but very thankful we had the opportunity to celebrate our son's graduation with brunch at Mistura!

    Celebrated our daughter’s Cal Poly graduation this past Saturday. Food was awesome. We were fortunate to snag 2 of 4 outdoor patio tables for our party of 6. While I had made rsvp months ago, the rsvp does not apply to the patio. We arrived before 5 and there was availability. Food and service were excellent, definitely recommend!

    Made a reservation here to celebrate son’s graduation. Saw it got good reviews and they were able to take a reservation for a large party (11). Unbeknownst to us they were only serving a limited “graduation” menu. Our party had 3 children and the menu in general offers very few kid friendly dishes, but the limited menu offered next to nothing. Our waiter was clueless as to what we might order for the kids. Drink order took way too long to get to table and came in two waves about 8 minutes apart - of course non-alcoholic drinks for the kids arrived last. Appetizers and entrees were all quite good - to be clear, the food was excellent. It’s the service that is lacking. One in our party ordered a rice dish with chicken and waiter apparently forget to have the chicken added. The rice dish was about inky thing close to kid-friendly. We all wanted to eat together but it took another 10+ minutes to get the chicken out … and when it arrived, it was raw and had to be sent back. Over cooked chicken finally arrived another 15 minutes later, but by that time everyone else had finished their meals and this diner’s experience was ruined. The charge for the chicken was removed and a small complimentary dessert was provided, but one meander in our party left hungry. Other reviewers have also commented on the lacking service. Management needs to pay attention to those reviews.

    Hope you don’t get sat at the forgotten table. Food was incredible but….. Very poor service. Table of 6. 2 people served, they ate. Then 1 more, 2 more and 5 were done eating, had to wait for the 6th person to receive their meal. Drinks ordered, waited 30 min to receive. Loved the food, the dining together experience was not met. I was embarrassed hosting our guests..watching everyone else eat . Having to keep asking for drinks and our food .

    Mistura was such a fun and unique restaurant combining Peruvian food with Italian and Chinese fusion. We got the Seco de Cordero which is one of the best meals I’ve ever had. The service was wonderful and the atmosphere created a light and fun vibe. There was also a Michelin star chef which handmade desserts. Couldn’t recommend this restaurant enough!

    Mistura never disappoints! We like to go early since it is a very popular restaurant and gets busy during prime dinner hours. The Pisco Sour has a surprising presentation, as does the La Flor dessert - both not to be missed! Peruvian spices are very flavorful and these chefs know how to cook and present beautiful dishes. We will be back!

    They sat us at a terrible table considering I made reservations far in advanced. Felt like we were shoved in a back hallway. Food was slow. Our small $8 side of French fries (the only thing on the menu that appealed to my 6 year old) were ordered first and took the longest, so she sat upset that everyone else had food in front of them— multiple courses and a simple side of unseasoned, overpriced fries took forever to come out. I knew in advanced there would be no kids menu, but honestly how can you mess up French fries ?! The server should have timed the dishes more appropriately

    Host initially couldn’t find our reservation. I had requested seating at a quiet table since this was to be a special occasion. We were initially seated at a tiny, noisy table amongst numerous other diners. I requested to change tables, only to be met with hesitation/confusion on his part. Once seated at a more quiet table ,our server was helpful with recommendations and explaining the various ingredients etc. to the somewhat confusing menu ie; Peruvian cuisine which we were not familiar with. The quality of the different dishes was adequate, but considering the prices overall the experience fell to what I refer to as “overly pretentious mediocrity”.

    I made a reservation for a friend and I for dinner. I was very excited to try. Checked in for reservation, was asked if we minded outdoor seating, said we didn’t mind. We received water and a small bag of corn nuts right after we were seated by a very lovely lady. We looked at our menu, which is very large and a bit had to navigate, but thinking because of that we’d have full service and advise being it our first time in and it being a little less straight forward. We waited twenty minutes, while the table next to us who was seated close to the same time ordered and received food. I went into the host to ask for a server. He apologized, and said he would send someone out. 5 minutes later the server came, (he was waiting on the one table next to us),asked to take or drink and food order abruptly with no apology. Drinks were very mediocre, (but sounded great on paper), but very pretty to look at. My friends food was fine, not great and mine was not good at all. Very fishy ahi. Not at all worth the time.

    We were there for my wife’s birthday with another couple. It really was one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had. I don’t say that lightly. Such good flavors - unusual to me tapas and entrées. The paella was so amazing. That’s what we ended with. The Ahi was especially good also.
