It was wonderful first-time experience! Every server we interacted with was so joyous and welcoming, and helped us learn all about the Peruvian delicacies. The hosts were very accommodating, Geraldo and the other bartenders were always looking out for us, and Tina was such a wonderful and helpful server! The food and drink was exquisite, the leche de Tigre ceviche, the causa sampler, and the arroz con leche cheesecake were all home-runs! Thank you so much for helping make my girlfriend’s birthday celebration so memorable and enjoyable! Definitely plan to be back again!

If you want to have a nice time and eat very well don’t think twice. Just go to Pisco y Nazca.
From appetizers to desert everything was amazing.
All staff also very friendly and ready to help you.

I highly recommend anyone go here. Whether it be just to eat, hangout as a group and or have a few drinks, this is the place. Reservations ahead of time are highly recommended.

I had a variety of things such as the Mixto Ceviche which was very good. Although not quite as good as the Callejero Ceviche I had. That one was great and one of the better ones I’ve had worldwide. The Chocolate Dome dessert is a must also. It’s $13 and worth it all. It’s presentation is matched by its taste.

Probably one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been.
The ceviches (leche de tigre or ají amarillo or mixto) are incredibly good!
The pisco cocktails as well. I asked for the Nazca Mule (highly recommend).
Tbh, this was one of my highlights of my DC trip.
Thank you 🥰

They were out of several basic tequilas and drinks…on a Friday night at 830?!?? The waiter said it’s because they are very popular drink so they ran out. Don Julia silver, patron silver, really??
Also the bathrooms were not well maintained, and it’s not like we only went once, we went 3x over 2+ hours. Still coming out of covid, let alone any time to be honest, you would think they would be better maintained and cleaned.
I loved this restaurant pre pandemic but it’s not te same experience now.

Excellent traditional Peruvian cuisine! Excellent service!
Ceviche and grilled octopus - Excellent
Pisco Sour cocktail - Very good. A bit sweet for my taste but still delicious.
Lomo Salteado - Very good. A bit overcooked for my taste but is exactly as I remember it from a previous trip to Lima.
Very good prices during happy hour.

Customer service was very good. There was an issue with our order and the manager as well as our server (Caesar - LOVE HIM!) made sure that we were accommodated.

The food was absolutely delicious.

The popcorn snacks are sooooo good and addictive.

Extremely delicious brunch with bottomless mimosas (the passionfruit is incredible). Was slightly disappointed that you must partake in their price fixed brunch in order to do brunch or order an entree when the pancakes would be large enough to be classified as a whole meal. Totally worth it though, since I took home the leftovers from the 3 course meal.
