Excellent Peruvian cuisine. Ate at the bar. Owner Walter and bartender Cullen outstanding. Highly recommend.
Great food and service!
My parents and I went to try this restaurant and we were so pleased with our meal and service! We were a few minutes early, but we didn't mind as we watched a live stream video of Lima, Peru. Our food was nothing but perfection! My Lomo Saltado was delicious, and my parents' Andean Gnocchi and Cebiche were so tasty. Definitely coming back here again!
It was good food. Not the most authentic Peruvian food in the DC area, it's better in Rockville. The food here was also over salted which detracted from otherwise very good ingredients.
Very tastey unusual dishes....nice but not overwhelming choices. Ambiance was nice.
Ashley is so amazing!! So professional and sweet. Quality recommendations. Everything was incredibly delicious. Great place for an intimate dinner or lunch. Absolutely no complaints.
This is my go to place for Peruvian food. The food is tasty, the presentation is fantastic and the waiters knowledgeable. Lots of choices for drinks and eats. It is expensive but for food this good, it's worth it. If you're uptown, you should visit.
Really enjoyed the food here. They have amazing Ceviches. We ordered the Mohica Ceviche, and it was yummy. I ordered Chaufa De Mariscos for dinner, which is wok fried rice with seafood, and it was delicious. We were a party of 7, and our waiter was very patient, and extremely professional. He carefully split the checks at the end of our meal. I did not try any of the desserts, but others noted they were really good too. I will definitely plan to be back here again soon.
Located just blocks from Dupont Circle, Nazca Mochica is a two-story restaurant offering contemporary Peruvian cuisine. The dining room upstairs (Nazca) is simply, yet elegantly, decorated and offers a brief combination of Peruvian standards (causitas, lomo saltado) and novelties, such as duck confit. The ceviche lounge/bar is (Mochica) is downstairs and offers a pisco sours and Peruvian tapas/street food: ceviches (Mochica, Mixto, Clasico), yuccas, steamed pork dumplings, etc. The food is excellent, as is the service. The dÃ©cor is modern and pleasant, and our tab was reasonable. Highly recommended. We had an excellent dinner at the Nazca dining room on the second floor. My wife lived for two years in Peru, and Peruvian cuisine, with its fusion of European, indigenous, African and Asian influences, is gaining enthusiasts worldwide. Weâ€™ve been to excellent Peruvian restaurants in other cities, such as Andina in Portland, OR, and La Mar in San Francisco, CA. Though maybe not quite at the level of these two, Nazca Mochica is a cut above other Peruvian restaurants weâ€™ve tried in the Washington, DC, area. My wife ordered the Seco de Cordero (Braised lamb leg marinated in â€œSecoâ€ sauce), and I ordered the Lomo Saltado (beef, onions, tomatoes, garlic, and french fries). The Lamb was delicious, complex, and rich. The Lomo Saltado was among the best, if not the best Iâ€™ve ever tasted. The flavors were blended together, but the ingredients retained different textures. We shared a delicious Passion Fruit Infused Quinoa Salad. We ordered a Peruvian Malbec that was surprisingly good, despite our caveat that we might find it a bit â€œminerally.â€ It was dry, and more â€œminerallyâ€ than fruity, but it was the perfect complement to our meal. Who knew that Peru has been working for years to develop its own wine industry?! Alas, we had no room for dessert. All in all, we had an excellent meal and a lovely evening. The tab was reasonable for Washington, DC (just over $100 for two including wine), and my wife, who lived two years in Peru, made me promise that we would return soon to explore the seafood portion of the menu.
Yummy food, friendly service. All you could ask for.
Great fancy place to eat Peruvian food. Thank you Silvio for services with my family will be back soon from New Jersey.
Went with a group of friends and had the chance of trying various drinks, appetizers, and main courses. Everything was very tasty and I highly recommend anyone come here to try some very delicious food with very friendly staff.
Fantastic restaurant. Server and chef went all out to support our dietary restrictions. Short rib appetizer was wonderful as was the lamb shank and seafood stew entrees. Dessert was delicious too. Portion sizes were perfect. We shared the app and the dessert and that was plenty. Great Pisco sour!
Great food and excellent service. Also a wonderful space for a special event! Their third floor is a lovely space. Walter is a very helpful and gracious host when planning a larger event.
A little pricey but well worth it.
True Peruvian food. Nice interior. Good service.
Writing this review at the table because I just canâ€™t wait till I get in the Uber! If you are looking for excellent sea food and service come here! On our servers recommendation we ordered 2 cebiches for our group of 5 and the fish was excellent. Very fresh and savory. Our server was also very helpful in getting us to try a full Peruvian experience. Come down for the beautiful decor, tasty food, and wonderful people!
The food is outstanding. We came in for brunch and loved every bite!
