We sat outside, which was our preference. Tony took great care of us and offered helpful suggestions. Wonderful cocktails and wine plus delicious food equals perfect evening!

We waited almost 15 minutes for someone to even take our drink order. Our server was nice enough, but frequently disappeared for long periods of time. The food was barely passable; very disappointing. The ahi was riddled with fat, the empanadas were lackluster at best, and the avocado was bleh. On a positive note, the drinks were very yummy!

Came to celebrate a 75th birthday. We were greeted with warm welcomes, amazing food and great service. The tartar was delicious, half chicken so tender it fell apart in your mouth, the pulpo was tender and exquisite and the empanada trio is a must have. Snd of course the pisco sour is the best here!

I am from out of town and only saw this place driving by. It was busy with very nice outdoor seating. Checked out their website and menu. Glad I did, food was delicious and although more $$$ than $$, really was an enjoyable evening!

Overall it was a good experience. The only downside was the fact that we reserved indoor dining. Given it was 100F that afternoon, all inside tables were full. When I told the girl that checked us in she told me “we do not have those details in our reservation system”… Well, why then offer the option in OpenTable?

After we decided to stay, and other than the unwanted table placement, the food was really good and the staff was really attentive. We will go back again, but we will make sure it’s not on a hot day.

Horrible service. Took 45 minutes to get our drinks - just as we finished our apps. Ordered 4 entrees, 2 came an hour after we ordered, as we were finishing up.
Sat outside. Noise on Treat was deafening at times.
Person pouring the water and gathering dirty plates was completely worthless.
Food was good but the service was so poor that I won’t make that mistake again.
We should have been offered a free drink, at least. They ask for two hours at the table. Our meal took 3 1/2 with us asking for everything 2-3 times.

Monday lunch…ordered empanadas ..waiter said no chicken available…beginning of week? Seemed odd..mushroom empanadas was OK..one was a little burned…Waiter greeted us with mask and then took off mask to speak about menus…not good…Salad with pulled chicken very skimpy..hardly any chicken or tomatoes…inadequate…won’t go again..

We were seated in the outdoor patio area right under a speaker. The music was so loud our party of three could not hear each other. We asked the wait staff three times to turn the volume down. One of our party had to go inside the restaurant and find the manager who finally did turn the volume down.
Although the food was good I will never eat here again. The lack of customer service is inexcusable!

Monday night dinner for two. First time at restaurant. Diverse, interesting, Peruvian menu. Excellent food. Friendly service, but a bit slow on the food delivery as it appeared they were somewhat understaffed (which seems to be fairly common right now for most restaurants as they come out of the Covid lock-downs). Place is also noisy. But with the excellent food and friendly service and a wide variety on the menu, definitely worth checking out, and we ourselves will return.
