It was a great experience. We were seated as soon as we arrived. Although he second floor was closed, due to low restaurant volume, it was still cozy and great vibes/atmosphere. the waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and good choices for first timers visiting the restaurant. we enjoyed the lamb with quinoa polenta, the grilled, octopus and the steak and potatoes. it was all delicious. it left such a memorable taste I can't wait to go back. they also had live music.
The food taste really good and the presentation of the dishes are pleasing to the eye. Prices are good and food is fresh.
food was excellent,service was very good,waiter was attentive to our needs.
Very friendly, comfortable atmosphere, mainly seafood and pork and vege but delicious! Highly recommend!
Have been meaning to stop in like forever. Finally made it an occasion to celebrate a birthday .There were five of us ($300 with tip: 2 apps, 5 meals, 3 desserts, drinks). The service, food, ambience were all great. Will come back just for drinks as well some time - nice intimate looking bar.
Ceviche and brussel sprouts were my favs! Warm and welcoming place :) . Highly recommend!
Food was distinct and outstanding! Service was attentive, friendly and professional.
Luckily they were able to accommodate last minute reservations for Valentine's day. Big thanks for that save lol. The food is amazing!!! So many flavors and just pure delicious. Service was very slow and at times seemed like they were more focused on leaving at the end of their shift than on the tables. I noticed many tables took 20+ mins just for simple dessert. The food made up for it but service could definitely improve.
The best pisco sour ever. Better than any I ever had in South America Worth going back for just for that The Flan was very nearly as good. The menu is a mix of raw and cooked tapas along with more complete main courses and sides. The ahi with grilled pineapple the prawns and the short ribs were all to die for. I remember the chef being on Knife Fight as a finalist and made a plan to visit his restaurant the next time I was in New York sadly it had to wait a while but no disappointments highly recommended. It was worth the one hour subway trip very easily
My husband and I ate at Surfish for Valentine’s Day. Super impressed with the food and service. Also, pleasantly surprised that we weren’t seated too close to the people beside us, like you might see in most NYC restaurants. We were very comfortable and had a great time.
We made a reservation for Brunch. The portions were filling and the culinary attention to detail is well noticed; great uses of flavour. We intend to return again soon to try more of the menu!
I'm big fan of Surfish. My one complaint is that even though I made a reservation, I was seated upstairs. The upstairs, though spacious, is much less cozy and comfortable than the street level.
Excellent fresh food, good service. Highly recommend
I love this place!
This is our second time dining with friends at Surfish, and it has been a delight both times. The food is unusual, but accessible. Everyone has truly enjoyed their meal and the ambience. On a Saturday night, with large parties, it can be a little noisy. Come for a week day dinner if you appreciate a slower pace and vibe.
One of my favorite places! The manager, Magda, and the rest of the Surfish staff are phenomenal! I even had a holiday event here with my job and it was just perfect. Always love coming back for the great food and ambiance! #TeamSurfish
Great food! Both exquisite and hearty at the same time!
Surfish Bistro is one of the most delicious restaurants in NY. Awesome modern Peruvian dishes with fresh ingredients. The food is VERY GOOD, don't take my word for it, go and check it out. We loved the Maduros Gnocci that unfortunately are not in the menu anymore. Instead they replaced them with sweet potato ones (probably because of the season) and they're delicious, too. Great ceviche, meat, octopus, ... order a bunch of plates to share and experience a little bit of everything. Awesome pisco sour cocktails on different flavors, Cusqueña Peruvian beer. A neighborhood gem. We were so sad they closed their second location on 5th Ave, but we love to come and support them here whenever we have a chance.
never get tired of the food....always excellent...and fresh and people are great......
Excellent food! Been to many Peruvian restaurants; this one has excellent food: good creations and selection of ingredients.
We eat at Surfish often. At most restaurants, we have 1 or 2 favorites; at Surfish, choosing our meal is a challenge because there are so many things on the menu we love. The ceviches are great, and there are always some new ones to try. Love the taquitos, mussels, ribs, corvina, lomo saltada, and many other standards. Last night, we tried 3 special appetizers (all were great) and duck lo mein, which was new to the menu and a big winner.
The restaurant is casual, and service is friendly and timely. And, very tasty sangria certainly adds to the meal.
It was very welcoming and staff was attentive. Food excellent and drinks were delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Surfish was an outstanding dining experience. The food, the ambience and the service was all incredibly good!
Chef Miguel Aguilar brings a great view of Peruvian food. Original and full of flavor! His wife is the hostess and provides a high level of culinary service to the patrons. The pair provide a culinary experience good for any occasion. Patrons can rest assured they will walk away wanting to go back soon!!
Just wonderful. Great food, nice people, reasonable pricing, warm vibe.
We were in Brooklyn NY to see our son who is a resident at a hospital there. We went to Surfish for lunch. The food and service were excellent. I would recommend the place to anyone who wants to try Peruvian food. We loved the paella, the salmon in coconut milk sauce and braised ribs, the items we ordered. The sliders were excellent. Excellent food that was prepared really well. The service was outstanding. We bought our son a gift card for two for him and his wife. Check this place out if you are in NYC or Brooklyn.
I went on a Sunday during brunch hours and it was pretty empty. The lomo saltado was delicious but the rice a bit over cooked, I know some folks like their rice crispy like the Persian tahdig but I personally hate it when rice gets stuck in my teeth. The service was good and professional. I love their food and would highly recommend it to anyone. The location is probably busier later on in the day or evening, wish I was drinking but I'm currently teetotaling so no pisco for me :(
Such a fun place! The lighting is perfect, the ceviche is amazing! Love it here!
Have been to Surfish Bistro several times now. The drinks are amazing. Food is flavorful and creative. The wait staff has always been friendly and knowledgeable on the menu. Love it! Always a good time. Highly recommend.
If visiting NYC like I was, this restaurant is a must! Amazing Peruvian food, delicious pisco cocktails! I will totally come back when visiting NYC
A delight. good sized portions. friendly and prompt service/wait staff. delicious food. a great neighborhood as well as destination restaurant.
Food was really good. Price wise is good too.
my friend and I enjoyed a good meal of mango salad and a sampler of 3 delicious fishes -- we spent more than we normally do (and would have spent at their 5th Ave location, which was mysteriously closed) but we were celebrating --
Great ceviche. Get the sampler for a little taste of 3 different types. Skirt steak entrees and shrimp dish was delicious. Pisco sours were tasty!
We went before catching a comedy show. There was practically no one there at 5 which meant we had a ton of attention. The pisco was beautiful and tasty. The ceviche was perfectly acidic, and the seafood soup was tasty and filling. Well worth the pick. We hope we can come back in years to come.
Very good food, service, and decor. I will definitely be back.
Fabulous, authentic food but VERY noisy. They could do without the music.
Great food, great service. great evening. every dish we ordered was excellent.
Great Peruvian. Delicious and creative cerviches. Large portions and good value. Black paella also excellent. Everything we ordered was delicious and different. Really like this restaurant.
Everything in this place is perfect!! From being served by the nicest people to the stellar food - amazing! Try it, you will not be disappointed
