Every experience at Pisco y Nazca is superb! The food and cocktails were delicious and a great value. The staff was friendly and we were not rushed during the meal. I will continue to come back.

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.

This place was great! Food was amazing … especially if you love ceviche. I know that restaurants have been struggling with everyone coming back at once and less personnel but seriously even though everyone was crazy busy our serve Cesar was amazing to us.

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.

Outstanding tostones, pulpo, and ceviches. Also fabulous drinks and cocktails that are not too sweet. Mercedes provided outstanding service as did the rest of the staff. Anyone looking to try or retry Peruvian cuisine will get little better anywhere.

Food was good, but not as good as peruvian food can be. Service was a bit lacking unfortunately. Nothing glaringly wrong with the service, and we still had a lovely time, but service was pretty slow, and attention to detail was sparse.
Good place to enjoy pretty good food in a great environment, but not 5star anything I would say.

Kinda loud. Food is ok - not amazing. Good ceviche, but the chicken stew was very dry - dry chicken and very little gravy. Sangria is meh - too sweet and a little watery.

Amazing experience from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave. Staff is always friendly and welcoming, the food is superb! They have items that are seasonal and it never disappoints. They cater to your needs specially if you have any allergies, the Chef always makes it a quite unique and memorable experience (for us picky eaters).

You will not be disappointed!!!!
