Had the carne asada empanadas and the wok stir fry dish. Both were very good. Sauce with the empanadas was exceptional. Wok stir fry was also very good. Noise level was a bit high and it was difficult to hear at times.

My first taste of Peruvian, and I'm impressed! We had the chicken (highly recommended to us and glad we chose it!), sweet potato fries, and the truffle mac & cheese (to-die-for!). Casual atmosphere, lots of noisy conversation, but friendly, helpful staff, and great margaritas!

Dinner was mostly good. Not pricey. Having had plenty of Peruvian food in Peru leaves me a bit more judgmental. Sides tasty (especially green beans), but chicken a bit tough, dry. Seafood dish nice. Not exciting overall. Other choices might have been better. Might try...More

This is a fun neighborhood place with delicious food and a lively atmosphere. We had tigre de leche ceviche, roast chicken, lomo salteado, and mango lemonade, all of which were yum. Recommended.
