    Loved the great food and vibe. An appetizer portion was sufficiently large for a dinner portion. The entrée was definitely shareable. Really reasonably priced. Great Pisco drinks and more.

    My daughter and I ate here on a Sunday late in the afternoon. The restaurant was busy, but it seemed to be well staffed. The food was good. Very good empanadas and dessert, mediocre and tasteless salad with ahi tuna as the main. Our waitress was fine in the beginning—not overly engaged, but not a problem. As the meal went on, she disappeared for longer and longer times with no follow up. We waited 10 or 15 minutes from when we told her we wanted to order dessert until she returned to take our order. It was the same with the bill. By this time, the restaurant was far less busy. Between the average (at best) food and the poor service, I won’t be returning.

    28th Wedding Aniversary The food was amazing but the service was extremely disappointing for this level of Restaurant. Although I had reserved with weeks in advance, when they sat us down, we were placed in a table right next to the entrance / exit of the kitchen. There were other same sized tables available but when I asked if we could move to a nicer location we were told they were reserved. We were the first couple with reservations to arrive so not sure why they told us this. After a while we were relocated but things were ok from there on, the service was a bit unstable, some things arrived and others took longer, many empty used plates on the table without getting picked up and finally an 1:15 later they came to charge the service ( we had not asked for the check and we were going to get another drink to celebrate) and then they told us we needed to give up the table for another group. I have not had this type of experience before in a restaurant of this level and we left disappointed. This is a Peruvian restaurant very close to our Latin roots and we are true lovers of Peruvian food. I want to ensure that this comment is about the service as the food was amazing. It’s hard to drive to DC from Virginia, pay for parking only to be told an 1:15 later that we need to give the table back. There are many other great Peruvian restaurants and we Thankyou for the opportunity but will most likely not return here again.

    Unable to accommodate gluten allergies that had been accommodated before with no problem at this restaurant. Perhaps they were severely understaffed, but it was an unpleasant experience.

    Ceviche was good. I was a bit surprised it was severed in a deep glass/bowl with all the citrus it cured in. This makes it more like a soup than if the cured citrus is drained.

    Made a reservation based on the internet reviews. Was not disappointed Monday night and the restaurant was packed. Very nice restaurant, great food and drinks Portions are definitely good to share Ordered Callejero, Empanadas, Crocante as appetizers and Plancha pulpo appetizer and Lomo saltado for an entry Was way too much food for us, but we really wanted to try these dishes. Would be enough to share for 3-4 people. Noise level is pretty high and it’s not easy to have a conversation. Service was good, would definitely visit again

    Callejero ceviche was spicy & fresh but served in a large goblet that made it awkward to share. Pollo Chaufa..we were expecting chunks of chicken not shreds. This is a rice dish….chicken seemed like an afterthought. It was not what we expected. Flan was good but although creamy & smooth was way too dense for flan. Bottle of Yealands Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand was a winner.

    Service at best was mediocre to BAD…..empty plates stayed on the table till we left. Main entrée arrived for the 3 of us…..we had to set aside our own empty appetizers plates to make room for main dishes….. Many “waiters” would walk by our table….. no effort / interés on cleaning the table…. Wait was a bit too long…..place was not full…. Never met the main host…. Food was very good….service not so good…

    I always have a wonderful time at Pisco y Nazca. The food and cocktails are consistently delicious and well presented. There is always an energetic, but not too loud atmosphere, and the decor and service are always pleasant and professional. This is one of the only restaurants I frequently return to in DC (~quarterly) and I will continue to return and dine here.

    I had the Guapos drink to start off. Very tasty and refreshing, followed by the "Callejeros" ceviche -a generous portion with a bit of a punch in terms of spice-; I selected the "tallarines verdes" for my main entree: a bit charred and salt-heavy for medium temperature, but I suppose the salt-friendly steak was needed to balance the green noodles (tallarines verdes). Ambience is lively and service met expectations. I would give it another try but will stick with seafood on my next attempt.

    Just ask them what to order. You will want every single item despite not knowing much about Peruvian food unless you are a big shot LA traveler. The food is insanely good. Great service. Reasonable price considering how shi shi the crowd is.
