The pork stew was a bit salty. But, the other dishes were pretty good. And, the service from Gerson was phenomenal!

Fantastic place for brunch!!! My boyfriend found this place on OpenTable while in DC for a quick 2 day trip. We both did the $30 3 course brunch, and we ended up taking away enough food for another (delicious) meal of leftovers! Every dish was so unique, the restaurant itself is beautiful, and our waiter was particularly awesome! I unfortunately didn't catch his name, but he gave us some great recommendations and explained the dishes so well, everything came out promptly and everyone was super attentive. Thank you for one of the better restaurant experiences we've had in a while!

Taking my mother out for lunch during her visit in town - we were both very pleased with the wonderful flavors and presentation. Decors and vibe were both elegant and lively and service was quite good too. Only challenge: the crowded and open space format makes for a very loud surrounding that renders any intimate and quiet conversation virtually impossible. But defijitely a great culinary destination. Will go back soon!

Great setting and usually crowded at happy hour so call ahead. I prefer sitting at the hightops. Appetizers are awesome and, needless to say, the ceviches are outstanding.

Wonderful experience: really delicious fresh food, generous portions, excellent attentive, personalized service. Great mood guaranteed. We were lucky to have Peggy twice as our server. After our return two (or more) weeks later, she remembered our personal preferences and made us feel very welcome and special. Will be coming back.

Good (if not great) flavorful food and great service in a nice dining room with a hip but casual atmosphere. Will definitely return. The tuna teridito is not to be missed. Ceviche sampler just so so. Beef entree tasty and good for the price but not outstanding.

Had dinner here with a small group of 5 on a Friday night. The food was very good and the restaurant is popular because it was packed. I would definitely go again.

Everything about this place was great (except parking!) We took the recommendations of the servers and weren't disappointed. I can't remember the name of mine now, but it was the ceviche that is chopped and served in a glass, I believe it was the Callejero. It was very good! My husband had the chicken stew, which reminded us of the version of curry chicken we make. He is very sensitive to heat and thought it was a little spicy (it wasn't really!, but I like spice) . They were kind enough to bring him a sauce that they had that was creamy (they don't have sour cream, which is what he wanted. But it did the trick!) The Pisco drink I had was incredible. I believe it was the Guapo's Chilcano. The place was a nice size with a large bar.

Unfortunately today’s service at this location was less than impressive. We had a server by the name of Angel who made my first time experience less than welcoming. It was a very monotone and less than enthusiastic service. Thankfully I wasn’t there for the service; the food was definitely worth the venture out on our seven year anniversary.

After realizing we were going to arrive late for our reservation, I called and they were able to hold our table. Our server was great and provided excellent recommendations, we ordered 3 ceviches and 4 main dishes (highly recommend the ají de gallina), everything we had was amazing, including the cocktails! Will definitely be back!

Another spectacular meal here. The food inspired by head chef Lopez constantly amazes my palette. Even more commendable is the service. The warmth and friendliness with which the staff showered our party with really made our evening. Bravo, Pisco y Nazca!

Pisco y Nazca is a great every day dining destination. Whether it is for lunch, happy hour or dinner you will be pleased. Highly recommend the Pisco sour, rose sour and also the sangria options are sure to impress. For anyone working near L street, I recommend making a reservation since the large restaurant can still be pretty busy even on a holiday weekend. For food, be sure to try the Peruvian corn, the dip for the Papas fritas and emanadas is heavenly. Check out their sangria and be sure to ask for specials. Great indoor but also a large outdoor patio weather permitting.

Although I am vegetarian, the chef created 2 dishes that were exciting and very tasty. My ceviche friends were blown away with the variety and quality of the sea food. Nice server, very efficient and good timing.
