I was very impressed! I've been wanting to try this place, and very excited I finally did. My husband and I shared the Ceviche and the Seafood Dish, and it was quite delicious. Very fresh! Dishes run from $15 to $25. Great wine list and atmosphere as well. We'll be going back and recommending this place to all our friends.... More

In town for one night and wanted something different. Inkanto is in a strip mall but we were transported into a lovely romantic dining experience as we walked in the door. I chose a crispSauvignon Blanc to accompany a traditional white fish cerviche PERFECT! Walt had a red Peruvian wine to pair with the perfectly prepared lamb stew--Seco De Cordero.... More

This is Peruvian food in a fine dining style. Very romantic, high end place, nice wine selection. Portions are a bit smaller than your regular peruvian place and price a couple of additional dollar than average. Food is very good

My first experience with Peruvian fare was interesting. I tried the traditional ceviche, it was tasty and favorable, but the larger chunks were chewy. Could have used more vegetable matter also. Service was adequate and prices reasonable. Outstanding decor. I look forward to more samples of this cuisine, but will probably pass on ceviche.

I found this nice Peruvian restaurant . Try the Lomo Saltado a flambeed steak with red onions and red wine vinegar. The atmosphere it's wonderful with a good background Peruvian music. I totally recommend

We loved this place! The owner is lovely and welcomes you as if you are eating in his home. His wife is the chef and makes everything to order. This means service is definitely on the slow side, but the food is well worth the wait. Get the traditional ceviche, the jalea mixta and lomo saltado. Delicious.

Great food and great people! Amazing food that reminds me of all the years I lived in Peru. Every plate I order satisfies me. My personal favorite is the Ceviche Inkanto. I highly recommend it and the prices are great! Best Peruvian restaurant i've had in the U.S.

My wife is from Lima, Peru and so when we travel we look for good Peruvian restaurants. We went here for a late lunch and were delighted when we saw the menu of real Peruvian dishes -- not made up fusion so popular today. The young couple owners (and cooks) are delightful people. We plan to return whenever in the... More

We noticed the sign on the road and thought it sounded interesting. It was. We had two stews--lamb with beans and rice, and fish with vegetables in yellow pepper sauce. Both were well prepared and very tasty. The seasoning is distinctive--a little bite, but more flavor than heat. Service was very friendly and prices were reasonable. We're glad we stopped... More

We stopped in this Peruvian restaurant. They suppose to open at 12:00PM so we arrived at 12:30PM. They restaurant was empty. The owner/waiter was very friendly guy. Look like they had a big reunion or party the last nigh because few tables had empty wine bottles, glasses, and dirty napkins. No a very good first impression. We ordered some ceviche... More
