Cucina peruviana (a me Ã¨ sembrata anche un poâ€™ messicana) di ottima qualitÃ , servita rapidamente. Non metto cinque stelle per le porzioni decisamente troppo piccole. Piatti interessanti. Prezzo altino ma non altissimo, non da andarci spesso ma una volta ogni tanto ci sta. Abbiamo preso sia un piatto di carne che un piatto di pesce, ed erano entrambi buonissimi. Il personale Ã¨ molto gentile e volenteroso.
Excellent food. Highly recommend!!!
Ceviche is good! Happy hour is happy
This is a pretty fun Peruvian place. I tried both of the vegetarian options, the cauliflower dish and the gnocchi, both of which were good. The cauliflower tasted a bit Asian which was surprising but good. The maracuya fizz drink was excellent although very sweet. The pescado was perfect. We didn’t like the corn in the ceviche. The lomo saltado was very rich and delicious. Very good sauce. The portion sizes were small for the price, but we may come back.
This is a wonderful experience, especially if Erika is your server (ask for her recommendations!) A coworker and I came here in a business dinner. It's very relaxed and pretty quiet, great for conversations, and the food is just wonderful. Their alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are unique and just so easy to drink. The appetizers are great, especially the short ribs and yucca fries. I had a seafood dish with a rich sauce, and it was beyond satisfying. The fish was a perfectly cooked and crisped on the outside, moist and flaky on the inside. With shrimp, calamari, and mussel. Perfect. I finished with the tirimisu. Get the tirimisu. It's flavor and texture are unique - the Shirley of what your expect with a Peruvian twist. It's creamy but structured, and maybe a little like pannacotta. Would definitely go again on a date night or for a business meal or as a treat. Cheers, Nazca Mochica.
We are family style with eleven people, three of each dish were brought out. It didn't seem like much food (aka, portions seemed small). It was nice that they had vegetarian options (a gnocchi dish, a cauliflower dish). None of the food was fantastic, but service was great (friendly, refilled water copiously).
Nice place, different food or tasty. Very nice staff! Thank you!
Excellent pisco sours. We also tried the causa, anticuchos, and ceviche. All delicious and with beautiful presentations.
Amazing food, staff, and dining room. Couldn’t recommend more!
Fantastic food, the menu has many options but I recommend the yuquitas to start and the ceviche mixto as a Main course. If you haven't tried it, the pisco sour is a good drink but if you want to mix it up their passion fruit version. Their tiramisu comes with mango sorbet, tasty.
Excellent, just to point, best way to describe this restaurant, the only issue we found was that some areas were a bit noisy for our taste . Authentic Peruvian dishes in a very pleasant atmosphere with an excellent service ( hats off to our server that night, Silvio ), what else can you ask for? The only regret is that we were there during restaurant week therefore menu was limited , a good reason to come back another time when full menu will be available. 5 stars to the service crew, we were treated to a free round of wine on the house in the lower bar section of the restaurant , just for the fun of it. Thanks Walter!
I would give this 4.5 if I could. The atmosphere walking in was wonderfully classy and still comfortable. We were seated next to beautiful tapestries that gave us privacy without making us feel closed in. The waitstaff was, to a person, warm, polite and friendly. At a restaurant of this caliber one often is greeted by snootiness, but this was not the case here. I take off points for the Huancaina sauce that tasted more like watered down Aji Amarillo. There was also no rice served with dishes that require rice. To their credit, we requested rice and it was brought immediately. One of my companions had Arroz con Pato and the arroz was a bit bland. That was disappointing. My Lomo Saltado was amazing and the Aji de Gallina was as good as can be expected with frozen ajies. All in all, a wonderful experience. I want to go back for a summer lunch and try the cebiche!!
The food was great and customer service was great too. Only reason I'm giving 4 starts is because of the lack of service for kids. I didn't know about this and took my nephew (2 years old) and there was no chair for him and also no plates everything is for adults. I would definitely come back but not with a baby/little kid as the restaurant is not prepared for it. We ordered Seco, ceviche, aguadito, mazamorra dearroz blanco, Everything was delicious. We spent around 130 for 2 adults including tips.
This place is on the eastern edge of DuPont Circle in a relatively quiet neighborhood. Located in the middle of a block of townhouses, it has a long and narrow shaped interior. There are two floors but at lunch on a weekday only the upstairs is open. The dining room has small 2 top tables and floor to ceiling gauzy white fabric dividers which provides the softly lit interior a romantic and intimate feel. The small tables would have made spacing a bit tight, however many are arranged along the wall which combined with the curtains provided fairly good privacy. The RW lunch menu was not extensive but offered a fair introduction to Peruvian dishes. We had the quinoa salad and aguadito chicken soup - the latter closer to a light stew flavorful and mildly spicy, very hearty for a cold winter's day. For entrees we had the cebiche al Rocoto and pollo saltado - both excellent. The alfajore cookie for dessert was so so - as lucuma mousse is my usual preferred Peruvian dessert (anyway most restaurants tend to overlook the importance of desserts). So overall we were quite happy with our lunch and I'm glad that I finally tried this restaurant - a much closer alternative to the ones further north in the MD suburbs. And the good news is that they are also extending RW for one more week!
It is quaint and elegant. Delicious food and awesome service.
Great atmosphere, food, and service!
Excellent food!!!! Deliciosa comida
Wait staff was a little awkward but the food was absolutely delicious & well presented. The gnocchi was some of the best I've ever had.
A good 4-star experience. Eclectic cuisine makes frequent visits unlikely.
Fantastic restaurant! Prices were comparable to other DC restaurants of this quality. The food was authentic, with most dishes being inspired by the flavors of different regions of Peru. The ceviche was great and a must order. We tried seafood and beef dishes, including Lomo Saltado. Both were great. The service was good, and the food prep time was extremely fast, almost too fast. I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for authentic higher-end Peruvian food.
