the chicken and sauce were delicious, the ceviche was small and not as flavorful as expected, especially for $30

We were lucky to discover Pollo D'Oro because we were staying a few blocks away, and were looking for cuisine we wouldn't find at restaurants back home. My wife grew up in Peru and prepares many Peruvian dishes, and even she was impressed. The Lomo Saltado was excellent, as was the Pollo al Brasa my wife enjoyed. The pappas a la huancaina appetizer was the best we have ever eaten.
And obviously the pisco drinks had great variety and were expertly made.

We look forward to returning there again and highly recommend it to anyone in the area looking forward to a Peruvian cuisine adventure.

Food was great. Service was good. Not over the top, but maybe a little too slow at times. Not always a bad thing. Not busy at the time we came. Would have brought more cash if we knew there was a 4% CC fee before we sat down. Overall good

The food was palatable, I guess. My family and I were the only ones there for brunch at noon. It took about 30 minutes for us to get drink and food orders put in, and then another 30 minutes for the food to come out. They only check on us once after the food was served and then were charged an extra 4% because we used a credit card. The only way to avoid that was to use a Venmo or cash. Overall, subpar food and mediocre service. I’m disappointed that we wasted a meal on them.

The excellent menu offers traditional and more modern dishes. Had the seco de cordero it was perfectly cooked strongly recommend. Pisco sour was so good we had seconds. Location is great and if your driving in there is a parking lot next door. prices are reasonable and they have Entertaiment on the weekend. Great for a date or special occasion. I will definitely return and recommend to friends.

Our steak entree was mediocre at best and our chicken and rice entree was downright bad—completely unacceptable considering the price point. I would not recommend this restaurant. The cocktails were tasty, but that’s about it.

First time here I loved it. The decor inside and out was cute & simple but stood out. They played old reggaeton songs that you bump too, which was such a vibe! I ordered the lomo saltado & it was delicious! I also tried one of their appetizers, I can’t remember the name of it but it was a ball of potatoes with colored sauces and a flower on top, it paired well with the aji, so yummy! My mojito was pretty good too.

Sooooo good!
Previously, I'd sat in Starbucks and looked over, wondering what the menu was like. When an out-of-town friend asked to go to dinner, I thought of Pollo D'Oro right away. It didn't disappoint; everything was great and my friend loved the lamb dish she had. Will definitely be back!

I thoroughly enjoyed myself at this establishment. The reservation was made through OpenTable and was easy to do. I arrived about five minutes after the reservation time but it was fine. Many of the customers were using the outside dining option which wrapped around the restaurant. Inside there were only two or three other parties besides us. One of the things I enjoyed about this particular restaurant was the customer service. The waitresses and hostess were really good. They made sure to check on us several times throughout the night though at one pint it did get confusing when I realized we were being asked the same questions twice. That's when I noticed that we actually had two waitresses but it was cool. I had the fried palea and we had both the chicken and beef empanadas for appetizers. I was hesitant in the desert option because everything had milk in it except for the donuts which I think they didn't have. After some time I settled on the chocolate and vanilla mousse and it was so so good, like good to perfection. I also had some tea, two cup which was a nice way to finish off my meal. I tasted my friends steak and pepper dish and it was good as well. I definitely recommend this place for the tasty food and stellar service. There's a small unisex bathroom in the back of the restaurant and it is clean.

The food and drinks were amazing! Ended up here since we were a large party and they took reservations. The service was great, and they were very accommodating. Would come back, just wish the restaurant had a little bit more charm and no TVs, too much of a sports bar vibe going on.

It was the perfect Saturday afternoon lunch with my daughter in their outside atrium. Empanada's and shredded chicken were outstanding--and make sure you have a pisco--as they make their drinks expertly and with flare!

This is the first time we participated in Peruvian restaurant week in NYC, held from November 15 to November 30th.

We decided to try Pollo D' Oro's prix fixe menu of complimentary Peruvian mule or beer, appetizer, and an entree for $34 pp.

We started with pisco based Peruvian mule cocktails
It was a strong brandy and refreshingly good.
We then proceeded with Causita acevichada or whipped yellow potatoes with aji Amarillo topped with ceviche and Papa a la huancaina; boiled potatoes with huancaina sauce topped with boiled egg and olive sauce. Both dishes are delicious and shareable.

We then ordered our main entree Salmon D'Oro or grilled salmon served with cilantro rice and veggies topped with salsa criolla.

My partner chose seco de Cordero or lamb shank cilantro stew served with jasmine rice topped with criolla sauce. Both dishes were cooked to perfection, simply delectable and blended perfectly well with a bottle of Peruvian Cabernet Sauvignon, we were both blown away!

We then shared a heavenly and decadent chocolate mousse dessert topped with whipped cream and chocolate shaving.

My only concern is they hid the salmon and lamb shank with garnishes why hide such a beauty?!

Over all it was an amazing dinner experience
