    We booked a table for two but somehow weee placed in a happy hour area. Party next to us having a lot of fun but they spilled wine all over my clothes and took our table space and were so loud we could not hear each other. Servers were new and food was not great-- usually love this place...

    This place is a go-to, always impeccable service and great food and drink. The waitress was able to answer all of my questions and was very attentive, even making sure to refill our water in the interim. The happy hour is a great deal, including pisco-based cocktails and signature cocktails. The drinks are all well-balanced with great flavor.

    The food is amazing. I’ve been there 3 times. The last time there was a party so the noise was loud and the waiter seemed to be in a hurry for us to leave the table. But apart from that, it was great. The first time I was in a table outside. Very pleasant.

    Decided to try a new place with this theme, especially after readying the reviews. The place itself was nice. Unfortunately, my wife and I did not have the same experience as in the reviews. I suggest avoiding if you have celiacs disease altogether; you can only have a few of the ceviches and one of the entrees. They did accommodate a tuna tartar that was dry. My wife had causa, which she described tasting spoiled. She mentioned it to the server, and a replacement was offered but it was not removed from the check. The ceviches were great but overpriced for the portion. Overall, seems like a rip off. It might be different if you don’t have CD, but there are better places with the same theme in town.

    We love Peruvian cuisine and went to Pisco y Nazca after a friend recommended. We got two entrees that we love and usually eat in Peruvian restaurants, chicharron de pescado and seco de Cordero. The lamb was ok but the pescado came surrounded by a spicy sauce that didn’t resemble any Peruvian sauce and with a white Chaufa that was also disappointing. My wife did not have more than two bites to try the dish and gave up on it. The waiter saw the plate untouched after half an hour and had no initiative to ask if there was a problem with the entree and tried to resolve it. She continue service after that with complete disregard to the obvious situation. We payed the bill left and we are not coming back.

    If you adore ceviche then you will adore Pisco y Nazca. Their ceviche is super delicious and they have so many different varieties to choose from. They also have the best grilled octopus. Seriously delicious. The only issue with the restaurant is the noise level. They have high ceilings and the restaurant fills up during lunch and dinner so it can be difficult to hear people at your table. If you have hearing difficulties you may prefer to use their outdoor seating area. Excellent service at the restaurant with very friendly staff.

    We had a lovely brunch for my husband's birthday. We arrived early for our reservation and they allowed us to wait on the patio. Our server was phenomenal! Very helpful with my sister's food allergy. Our food and drinks were delicious! We had a hard time choosing our meals because everything sounded so good. We will be back to try other things on the menu!
