Runas is exceptional! Truly excellent food! We ordered the grilled octopus, mixed seafood ceviche (absolutely amazing) and fish dinner. Victor, our server, was highly attentive and gave excellent recommendations. The bar tender made superb Pisco sours.

Outstanding find! We went a total of 3 times in 5 days. Try the Octopus with chimichuri sauce, shrimp soup, seafood mixed grill and the ceviche. Great service!

Food was phenomenal, service especially for drinks was incredibly slow. Appetizers came out before the first round of drinks.

Runas provides an eclectic menu of Peruvian specialties mixed with Asian inspired dishes. Flavors are subdued. We sampled risotto with fish, salmon with an almost teriyaki glaze. We tried their snapper special which was a whole fish served over rice. In addition it was served with calamari, shrimp and pasta. All very tasty, but mildly seasoned. I did have a couple of pisco sours since pisco is a native Peruvian liquor, with about the strength of brandy. Other than the special all of the dishes were about $22. The waiter did a good job of explaining the dishes. Recommended.

Food was beyond excellent! The presentation and flavors were all on point. Unfortunately, the service could use a lot of work, the bar has practically no alcohol and the bartender messed up a very simple drink order. The place looks unfinished and not at all what I expected.

The food was exceptional and the service was outstanding. Victor was an excellent server and helped us with our selections. The Octopus & ceviche is a must. Definitely will return.

El menú está amplio que no sabes qué pedir
Aunque el restaurante estaba solo se tararearon demasiado en atendernos y en servirnos los alimentos
La comida es buena sin llegar a muy buena
Los precios son muy accesibles

We had an excellent meal and the service was fantastic. We were a large party and they did a great job. We’re Peruvian/Venezuelan and picky and were very pleased.

The food was okay, is a good place to go with family and friends, but the only bad thing was that they tried to change us about $200 bar fee or something like that and we ask the waitress what was that and she was a little rude and nervous.

This was our first visit to Runas and we loved it. It’s stylish and comfortable. Service was great. The food is delicious. Runas has a very interesting, eclectic menu that includes traditional Peruvian dishes, along with Peruvian-Chinese fusion and Peruvian-Italian fusion dishes. After martinis we shared an incredible charred octopus appetizer! Amazing! We each had seafood dishes, but they were prepared quite differently. My wife’s had a traditional Peruvian flair with white rice, beans and a cilantro sauce. She loved it. I opted for a Peruvian-Chinese classic: seafood fried rice. So good that I ate the entire dish, despite being sated about halfway through. Runas is wonderful. Highly recommended.

Courses came out in wrong order. Main first for then salads. Even then it was only one main. The other entree only came out after many reminders. At the end of the day, there was two of us out for dinner, each of us eating on our own.

Also forgot my drink. Had to remind them twice.

Great food but really, get your act together.

Food great.

Service, shameful.

Had lunch with my girlfriend on a weekday. It was quiet; the food was really, really good (I just spent time in Peru during the Summer, and I'm a big fan). Service was good; they were trying really hard, and at moments got a little annoying. Our conversations were interrupted several times. We definitively will go back!

Absolutely exceptional meal from start to finish. Maíz tostado, lomo saltado, ají de gallina, ceviche - all of it was beautifully plated, delicious and very authentic! The chef owner is from Lima, Peru and his food is comparable to some of the nicest restaurants in Lima. I would highly recommend!

My second time at Runas and it was just as good as the first time. In addition to the food being outstanding, we had a great waiter, Victor. He is Peruvian and added a lot of good info on our meal, and also provided great service.

This place is a hidden gem in the Miami area but if you are into Peruvian food, I’m sure you know about it!! Our service, food, presentation, and overall experience were top notch. Very good value for the quality of food you get. Amazing ceviche, one of the best grilled octopus I’ve ever had, surprisingly good pico mussels, and perfect lomo saltado rissoto!

Amazing place! The owner was walking around ensuring everyone had everything they needed. Food tastes great and portions are perfect for the price. They have music on the weekends, sometimes a singer with drums, sometimes a violinist... but it’s never too loud to disrupt your table conversations. The owner knows all the history on the building as well.

Great first time experience for Peruvian food. The grilled octopus is amazing, different and worth trying. Service was great and all were super friendly and professional. I had seafood ceviche with shrimp, fish, squid and scallops. My wife had the fillet. Both were perfect.

Date night with the wife while out of town on business. The place was crazy good. The grilled octopus was out of this world. The ceviche sampler was to die for. I can’t say enough about this place. The seafood is great and the prices are more than reasonable.
