    Awesome experience! Santiago was great and very attentive! The food was very authentic as I’ve been to Peru and wow! I would highly recommend this place and would be happy to return ! We did the Prefix brunch menu with bottomless drinks, but added a couple additional options: including the ceviche and Pisco drinks! So delicious! It is definitely a beautiful vibe!

    From start to finish, Pisco y Nazca hit the ball out of the park. Awesome Pisco Sours. Incredible ceviche’s and empanadas. The seafood entree, with fish Peruvian style, calamari, mussels and shrimp was marvelous. They even had Peruvian wine, which I could not resist! Our server, Skylar, was topnotch as well!

    First time visiting this place. We were blown away by the quality and quantity of the food,(enough for leftovers). Oscar waited on us and gave us plenty of recommendations as well as explaining what some of the dishes consisted of. He was warm and welcoming and very personable. The cocktail's we're delicious and dangerous. The restaurant itself is very pretty and all patrons we're really enjoying themselves. We will be back!

    Our table was ready and the maître d’ didn’t allow us to sit until the whole group was present. I found this inconvenient since there isn’t a seating/waiting area available. The food is average but they did replace our tea tasting coffee for a real cup of freshly brewed coffee.

    5/5 excellent food, good ambience and chill vibe 4/5 service. It was my second visit back after enjoying my restaurant week experience from a year prior. I had the Seafood Rice (Arroz con Mariscos). It was absolutely delicious. Very good mix of octopus, baby scallops, shrimp and calamari over a spiced bed of rice with little red and yellow peppers with what thought to be large corn colonels. Fantastic. Highly recommend. For dessert I thoroughly enjoyed the chocolate tres leches cake that was accompanied by a river of liquid chocolate. Definitely not for the calorie conscious but delicious, creamy and tender as the sponge cake could be. Service was there but it appeared the restaurant was over capacity for the amount of table attendants there were.

    A friend was visiting D.C., and she wanted to try something different--not Italian, not American, not seafood. I chose Pisco y Nazca. The service was excellent. Very helpful and friendly waitstaff. She had the lamb and the portion was generous. I had the salmon, and the portion was small. The real problem was the noise level. We couldn't hear each other, and we were in the main section, not the bar. As soon as we finished eating, we left so we could have a nice conversation. Maybe it wouldn't be bad if you eat outside.

    Food and drinks were great but service was awful. The waiter never came by after taking initial drink and food orders so we couldn’t order anything else, didn’t fill waters, and website they use for payment was not explained. Once we all paid for our items, the website still showed a balance even though all items were marked as paid. The manager, instead of figuring it out, asked if one of us could just take one for the team and pay the remaining balance.
