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!
Really enjoyed the food and the setting
Abbiamo cenato 2 sere sulle 3 che abbiamo trascorso a Washington DC. Cibo di buona qualitÃ e quantitÃ normali, almeno per noi. Servizio veloce e personale molto gentile. Abbiamo sempre mangiato piatti a base di pesce cucinato bene, gusti completamente diversi dallo stile americano e molto piÃ¹ simili a quelli europei.
Tasty and expensive
Great food and service
Nos encontramos con muy buena comida peruana, no con la conocida fusiÃ³n japonesa sino con peruana real. Probamos un ceviche de la casa y unos pulpos a la.parrilla siendo todo muy sabroso. En el menÃº habÃa opciones de lomo, chaufa de Mariscos, y para terminar degustamos unos sabrosos postres tÃpicos TambiÃ©n pude saborear un muy rico pisco.
Wonderful Peruvian cuisine. Terrific wait staff. Highly recommend if you'd like something new or different.
Inventive cuisine that nevertheless seems authentically Peruvian. The cebiches were excellent -- fresh calamari and fish, subtly spiced up. The gnocchi was a surprise hit. The lomo saltado was flavorful and tender. All the dishes were perfect for sharing. Our server was pleasant and attentive. The restaurant is beautifully designed with floor to ceiling sheers and ceiling decorations that were interesting and even subjects of conversation. This was a last-minute choice for a dinner in one of the cool areas of downtown. We were pleased and will be back.
Nazca Mochica is a two-in-one concept that fulfills all the Peruvian food cravings. Upstairs is Nazca, a sleeker, more traditional dining room. Downstairs is Mochica, a ceviche lounge and pisco bar. We came for a birthday celebration. It was pretty easy to make reservations a few days before using OpenTable, and the restaurant called to confirm our reservation. Pisco sours are naturally popular here, although I went with their ginger mint chilcano. Infused with mint, ginger, and lemon grass pisco, my drink also had ginger ale, lime juice, and angostura bitters. It was a tasty concoction that I would go for again and again. Their ceviches are well-known, but we settled on short-rib antichuchos for a shared appetizer. The short ribs are marinated for 72 hours in an aji panca honey glaze and served with a creamy huancaina sauce, fried yucca, fingerling potatoes, and purple cabbage. The ribs are so tender they fall right off and paired with the various sauces, cabbage, and potatoes, it's one heck of a dish. For my main course, I went for their lomo saltado. This is beef tenderloin sauteed in soy sauce and sesame oil and served with red onions, roma tomatoes, and fries. A small side of rice comes with the saltado. It's a very homey, comforting dish, and I think it really speaks to me because it's a stir fry dish (lomo saltado originated as part of the chifa tradition or Chinese cuisine of Peru). We were even able to glimpse a little bit of wok action in the kitchen. Service was very friendly and accommodating. They even presented the birthday boy with their alfajores (Peruvian traditional cookies filled with dulce de leche) on the house. Fantastic place for Peruvian dishes and would definitely frequent Mochica for happy hour.
Pretty interesting decor I gotta say. There was a bit of a water crisis to be honest but it went well eventually.
Have been here twice. The 1st time the food was on point and delicious. The 2nd time the food was way too salty. I don't know what happened. So far they appear to lack consistency.
The food and drinks where magnificent, the server not so much. I ordered the Camaron con Arroz and a glass of red and one of their specialty Peruvian mix drinks( in love with it). Since the food was so amazing I wanted to order and another drink and desert but the waitress said "No", that the kitchen was closed and it was only 10:15 PM supposedly the restaurant closes at 10:30 PM.
Exceptional food and very cozy atmosphere!!!! A nicely quiet place... very good for dates and atmospheric dinners! Excellent service!
The food was very good. The short rib appetizer it's great. The braised lamb is also delicious. The duck rice dish is hearty & spicy but well seasoned Pic is of short rib dish Overall meal & experience was great. I recommend it.
During our family vacation, we took a walk to Nazca Mochica as we were in the mood for Peruvian. The atmosphere was nice and the staff attentive. The portions are on the small side (donâ€™t expect to bring leftovers home) but the dishes were well prepared and delicious. We ordered tiraditos as appetizer, chicken saltado, pescado a lo macho and coliflor saltada. We were still hungry and ordered an Andean gnocchi and the short-rib anticuchos. Beef was very tender, and the cauliflower surprisingly very tasty.
Authentic, delicious food.
As Peruvian in USA who loves to eat and cook Peruvian food ( also travels to Peru often to visit family) , I can said that I never eat cebiche in USA since always disappointed . However, when this place opened and tried the cebiche ( to see if is worth to eat it), I was amazed that the cebiche was close to the best cebiches in Lima. I always highly recommend this place not only for the cebiche but for all the dishes that has the tradicional Peruvian flavor ( homemade flavor ). This is my place when having not Peruvian fiends in town. I hope the food standard last for long time since I live and work in DC. Also, my place to get together with one of my favorite Peruvian friends who works overseas �
