    The food was absolutely overpriced for what we got. The service was like going to an Applebee’s. I have no idea why this place is still open. Terrible experience.

    Fun atmosphere. Good drinks. Decent food. Pitiful service. Waiter completely forgot one of our meals. It came out literally when the other six people in our party were done with their meals and drinks. I would have thought maybe an apology or even comp that entree but we got nothing. No compunction, no apology, no explanation.

    We had a great meal at Mochica! The staff was friendly and helpful, and food was excellent and the drinks were great too. We decided to go all-Tapas, instead of individual entrees and everyone was quite happy with that. We had several of ceviche's and everyone picked a different one as their "favorite" so in my book that means they were all good. I highly recommend Mochica's.

    Had reserved inside seating and were seated outside even though tables were available inside and several people that arrived right after us were seated inside. Heaters outside were not enough and it was too cold. Not comfortable. My wife complained with the host and nothing was done. The food was ok. Appetizer was the best of the food. Overall not a good price / value.

    The type of neighborhood food spot SF is known for. Potrero Hill has their fair share of these. Unpretentious Peruvian cuisine, well executed, with attentive staff. Good bar drinks too, if you don't see what you want on their menu they'll make it for you anyway.
