Best Peruvian food I've had so far in the US. Everyone was friendly and orders were all right despite allergies. But service a bit slow towards the end of the evening.

Food was great and as a limeña, I would dare to say that the flavors were as close as one can get outside Peru.
Really liked their menu tho the chicha had a bit much clover.
Thank you for the great service and courteous staff.

The food was amazing! They have put complimentary salted corn. I got the leche de Tigre shot which was sour and super delicious. The main course which was the ají de gallina was phenomenal! It was a big enough portion that I was able to take some home. Overall good experience and the ambience is moderately loud but the decoration is pretty.

Only one slight hitch (slight!). OpenTable advertised a prix fixe special that was to end today, Oct. 16 (I think), through the month celebrating Latin American Heritage. That advertised special was $23 per person. However, once there, they said their new prix fixe lunch menu was $25 and OpenTable was out of date. So I paid the extra $4!

We had the Spanish heritage (and friend's birthday) celebratory 6 course menu including Pisco flight (superb!) Food overload but it was all excellent. I will return for a "regular" size meal that I'm sure I'll enjoy. Looking forward to brunch one weekend coming up.

We did the tasting menu and were blown away by every dish. The portions were larger than anticipated, the pisco sour flight really got us out of our cocktail comfort zone in the best way, and our server (Maria) was phenomal. We will be back!

We came here in the late afternoon last Sunday and had our eye on the ceviche and lomo saltado from the start. I got the prix fixe (and selected the lomo as my entree) which came with a flight of piscos, 4 appetizers, a main (lomo) and a dessert. The piscos were all very tasty but I preferred the two non-traditional options. The appetizers were a lot more food than I expected and to be honest by the time I got to the lomo was ready to try it but definitely knew I'd be taking most of it home.

We really liked the ceviche and loved the dessert but the rest of the food was forgettable. Seriously, the dessert on the prix fixe - Pionono A La Mode, which was a rolled sponge cake with dulce de leche and espresso ice cream - was amazing. Honestly, I may come back just for this dessert. The lomo was overcooked/tough, way over salted, barely had any tomatoes or onions, and didn't come with as much sauce as I would like. It was closer to a bed of french fries and some overcooked beef (see photo).

The service was not good -- they were very friendly we just struggled to get drinks and our food took forever. It was average busy, not slammed, and they were reasonably staffed but I do give them a bit of a pass since everyone was very friendly. We also had an issue with running our card that we had to talk to 3 people about before the manager stepped in and took care of it quickly.

I did really like the staff -- even though the food took forever (we spent 2.5 hours at the restaurant and only ordered a few drinks) -- or else I would probably have given the place 2 stars on account of average food, long wait times for food (we waited over an hour between our appetizers and main dish), and trouble getting drinks/attention of servers

Service was great and the food was delicious. Only reason for three stars is that one of the dishes with fish made me sick 15 minutes after eating it.

Our time here was a highlight of our trip to DC! The staff was so great and accommodating, and the food and drinks were incredible.

The staff made us feel so welcome and made the experience feel very special. We even went back a second night! The bartender Cesar Alex was awesome both nights, and our server Alejandro was great, too.

I definitely recommend this spot!

My first brunch experience at Pisco y Nazca was good but not great. The food we got was excellent but their was a hiccup with our order. First, the good: I had their version of eggs benedict and a friend had the huevos rancheros. We both thought our entrees were tasty - I think the hollandaise on the benedict could have been a bit more flavor forward but was still pleased. Also, I love the chicha morada at Pisco and enjoyed two glasses of it - yum! Nor for our issue - we put in an order for a mixta empandas (one chicken and one beef); the plate we received had two chicken ones. We informed the server, who diligently went to get an order of beef empanadas, but when the second plate came out, it was again of two chicken empanadas. By this point, we had finished our meal and the server was very apologetic and removed the empanadas from the bill so the issue was addressed. But I love Pisco's beef empanadas so I was a little disappointed to leave without getting them. Oh well. Not enough of an issue so as to not go back - because, as I mentioned, the food is delicious. And we were able to sit outdoors on their patio which was pleasant.

The food was very good. But the causa, especially the sampler, could be improved. I would like to see the traditional form of causa (meat in the middle) with avocado.
