Had a nice business lunch. Had the kale salad & it was delicious! Service was excellent. It is a loud restaurant if that’s a concern.

Will definitely return to try other items on the menu. Fresh ingredients!

Food was marginal, nothing special. I needed to add salt and pepper to my brunch breakfast wrap. The mimosas were cheap! Which was a bonus. Service wasn't great. I don't think I would go back.

The food was excellent. The server was very nice and made ordering for eight easy. He answered all of questions and helped us to not order something we wouldn’t really like.
Prices are quite reasonable for almost all of the food.

We enjoyed our meal at Nazca. The hummus with Amarillo sauce and crunchy pita chips was a highlight. So good. I had the grilled butterfly chicken breast with a medium spicy sauce which was excellent. My husband had stuffed avocados. He said his meal was good but wouldn’t order it again. Nothing wrong with it, just personal preference re: food texture.
Wine selection is adequate and atmosphere was very relaxed but still feels like a nice restaurant appropriate for price point.
Service was excellent. Right level of attentiveness and server har great knowledge of menu items. Very pleasant.

I have this continual complaint with Nazca. Make reservations, call the day before to confirm (sometimes goes # of people change since I usually make reservations for 6 or greater) and request a specific table that I always sit at. When I arrive, no one has changed the reservation total and always try to seat me in "window" room which is noisy. THIS NEVER FAILS. If you want to make a change in your reservation or ask for a specific table, you will NOT get it when you arrive. You are also given a dirty look when you arrive with less arrive than your original reservation number, even though you called out of courtesy to change number the day before.

Fish tacos were delicious as always. Shrimp Salad was disappointing.... 4 small pieces of shrimp with tails (nothing given to discard of them), and only a few pieces of corn and beans. The service was a little slow.

This was my first time to Nazca Kitchen and it was definitely solid. I had the butterfly chicken breast with their medium-heat sauce. It was very juicy and nicely cooked. My girlfriend had tacos - 1 fish and 1 steak. The steak was excellent. We also tried some Brazilian and Salvadoran beers, both were great! Overall it was a nice dinner, the price point is bordering on a bit too much for what you get but everything came out nice and I would come back.

We dined early to accommodate plans (4 pm on Friday). The food was delicious... the six of us ordered something different and was delivered to the table timely and with nice presentation. We were able to visit easily and hear each other without leaning in. The atmosphere is casual nice. Some of us wore jeans and the others slacks. Their coffee blend is wonderful and they sell whole or ground bags of it.

Met friends here who had just returned from a trip to Peru, where we had been last year. The food is delicious, tho not totally Peruvian based--more from all over South America. However, that night they had Lomo Soltado on the menu, and it was fantastic. Appetizers, main dishes and drinks were all appropriately hot or cold, served with good timing in between courses. Would definitely go back here.

The food is unique (Costa Rica meets Cuba) and it's pretty good, but my personal belief is considering the alternatives this place is over priced. For example, $15 for two shrimp tacos and/or $14 for two steak tacos (they are a la carte) is simply too much money considering one could get specialty tacos at a local Dallas staples for a fraction of the price. In addition, there is no hard liquor meaning no mixed drinks and the prices of beer, which only comes in can or bottle, is too high (i.e. Community Mosaic = $8.00). For two people: an appetizer, 2-3 drinks per person, and two meals expect to pay close to $100. For that kind of money you may as well go to Javier's or The Latin Pig... it's just too much considering the alternatives.

With respect to the environment, it's nice/modern inside - don't sit on the front patio unless you're dying to be outside as it's nothing special. Think Pei Wei with servers (no not PF Changs) with a modern S. American feel.

Overall: unique food options and very tasty, but a lot of money for what you're getting.

There were lots of gluten free options on the menu which was important to me. The gluten free chips took 10 minutes to cook so we had to wait for those longer than we wanted since it was an appetizer. Our server was very nice but forgot to bring part of our order so we just blew it off. They tried to take our guacamole away 3 times before our meal got there. Maybe a bit too efficient at clearing:) All those things were forgivable but the noise level was awful. My friend and I could nearly hear each other over the crowd.
