The rice dishes were the best. As the beef heart skewers and causas. Drinks were awesome as well. The Ceviche carretillero was the best of the three ceviches. Although I must say that if I went again I would not order so many ceviches since it is hard to recreate in the US the exact flavor of ceviches in Peru. Better to stick to the hot dishes.

Very good Peruvian food. Generous portions. Good service, but could have had more servers (COVID?). Pisco drinks are good but not unique. It has been such a long time since I have had beef heart! Would definitely go again.

It was most people’s first time, but will not be the last. The food was amazing. We tried many different dishes. Had the ceviche, empanadas, octopus and yucca fries for appetizers. For main meals, the lamb falls right off the bone with a fork, the salmon is always a good idea and Lomo Saltado is always a must try. The pisco sour flight was also a big hit. Everything was full of flavor and cooked to perfection. This meal made a lot of people fans for life. Will definitely be back. Our waitress was amazing and she had great recommendations for dishes to try.

Sara was awesome! She explained the menu well, offering appropriate recommendations- including the wine. We were fortunate they were able to sit us an hour earlier than our reservation- which then included Happy Hour specials. We will definitely be back

We selected traditionally inspired Peruvian dishes all around but were disappointed in the end result. The empanadas and ceviche were very good, the entrees were disappointing.

Pisco sour smells very bad according to use decorative "egg foam" (not fresh) and could be a potential cause of contamination. The food was highly overpriced. The starter "causa" does taste more than a mashed potatoes with colorant and the main plate "Lomo Saltado" has lemon taste, normally used to hide not fresh meat.

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.
