It was brunch to celebrate my nephew’s birthday. Our waiter Daniel was very courteous and customer oriented. My nephew received a special birthday dessert and a hand written birthday card! Will definitely check again. Thank you

We had the Spanish heritage (and friend's birthday) celebratory 6 course menu including Pisco flight (superb!) Food overload but it was all excellent. I will return for a "regular" size meal that I'm sure I'll enjoy. Looking forward to brunch one weekend coming up.

We did the tasting menu and were blown away by every dish. The portions were larger than anticipated, the pisco sour flight really got us out of our cocktail comfort zone in the best way, and our server (Maria) was phenomal. We will be back!

Service was great and the food was delicious. Only reason for three stars is that one of the dishes with fish made me sick 15 minutes after eating it.

Our time here was a highlight of our trip to DC! The staff was so great and accommodating, and the food and drinks were incredible.

The staff made us feel so welcome and made the experience feel very special. We even went back a second night! The bartender Cesar Alex was awesome both nights, and our server Alejandro was great, too.

I definitely recommend this spot!

My first brunch experience at Pisco y Nazca was good but not great. The food we got was excellent but their was a hiccup with our order. First, the good: I had their version of eggs benedict and a friend had the huevos rancheros. We both thought our entrees were tasty - I think the hollandaise on the benedict could have been a bit more flavor forward but was still pleased. Also, I love the chicha morada at Pisco and enjoyed two glasses of it - yum! Nor for our issue - we put in an order for a mixta empandas (one chicken and one beef); the plate we received had two chicken ones. We informed the server, who diligently went to get an order of beef empanadas, but when the second plate came out, it was again of two chicken empanadas. By this point, we had finished our meal and the server was very apologetic and removed the empanadas from the bill so the issue was addressed. But I love Pisco's beef empanadas so I was a little disappointed to leave without getting them. Oh well. Not enough of an issue so as to not go back - because, as I mentioned, the food is delicious. And we were able to sit outdoors on their patio which was pleasant.

Probably one of the better restaurants in this specific location. The outdoor patio is nice and we had a fantastic server. The food and drinks were below average, but the pricing is reasonable leaving room for improvement on the overall experience.

My favorite restaurant now! Had friends in town last night and took them here. So amazing.....I love the Tuna Nikkei and Pescado Macho, their drinks are so good too. Highly recommend the Guapo Chilcano or the passion fruit Pisco!

The food was very good. But the causa, especially the sampler, could be improved. I would like to see the traditional form of causa (meat in the middle) with avocado.

The food was the most disappointing part of the experience. The servers were somewhat attentive but not attentive or mindful. For example, I ordered a site of eggs and they brought them without the main course or any other food for that matter

Our first two small plates were amazing!!! Our main dishes were a little less wow. Our server was fantastic as far as service but because of the place being very loud it was really hard to hear her in the mask. Not her fault but tough situation. We would definitely recommend for a Peruvian experience as far as food!

I wanted a table outside and was told it was going to rain and if it rained they couldn't guarantee that I would get a seat inside. The hostess was rude. PS People ate outside since it is covered and it rained and they were served.

The service was slow and I had to ask for a waiter. Also, I order two items and only one came.

I love this place, but was disappointed by the service.
