Such a beautiful space and the wait staff was really amazing. Having great food and drink is one thing but having the complete package is yet another. Pisco y Nazca really got it right.

Apps and ceviche are amazing as always, especially the Nikkei ceviche and scallops with cheese. Stick with exploring the ceviche and apps offerings— the main courses tend not to live up

The food is unique, delicious and appetizing! Great service, a little noisy which was cool for a Saturday night, loud for an intimate evening where you want to have a private conversation. This was our second time and it was as good as the first. Highly recommended especially for foodies!

I love this restaurant since the first time that I came. I always recommend this restaurants to my friends, the food is really good, the ceviche and Pulpo grill are delicious and the pisco sour OMG is the same as how Peruvian bartenders make.

I dined with a native Peruvian who was thrilled to see favorite dishes on the menu. Loved, loved, loved the ceviche! The service was extraordinary - I must eat gluten-free due to celiac disease, and the server talked to the chef and gave me a menu with all the GF foods checked off for my safety! Wonderful experience.

Great food and service. We had happy hour drinks on Friday and prices are good. They don’t have happy hour food menu but there are plenty of reasonable bites on the menu. We had some sashimi, ceviche, pulled pork bites, shrimp croquettes, and mixed meat grill. Vibrant flavours. Super friendly staff!

Celebrated my birthday here and the food did not disappoint. I am Peruvian and there are not many restaurants in the area that provide such authentic and well made Peruvian food. I will definitely be coming back! The happy hour deals were also very good!

Extensive menu of Peruvian food, which is fantastic. The servers really know the details of the broad menu and are really helpful in providing suggestions for menu choices for those (like me) that are not familiar with the cuisine from Peru. Beautiful restaurant with a fantastic happy hour! The place is always packed so make a reservation.

I am normally a huge fan of Pisco y Nazca, but this weekend's service was absolutely disappointing. I don't know if it was because it was restaurant week, but the food was subpar and our server completely neglected our table. Another server noted all the plates and lack of water that had been sitting there for over 40 minutes and approached us. he offered us a round of free drinks and a free dessert; which we were extremely grateful for. All in all, the dining experience was not great and am I not sure I'll be coming back anytime soon.

The server was rude and never came to check In with us because we were part of the deal of restaurant week it seems he was bothered by that .. he also forced us to order from the brunch menu when it was more than 3 PM and i know there was a lunch menu available at the website .. but yeah he was careless with the treatment.

Chef Pedro Lopez was so personable... we learnt so much about the cuisine from him. Definitely a revisit to try more of his delectable ceviches.
