Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It's a very hopping place, with a lively bar near the entrance. The food is excellent as are the pisco sours. Excellent ceviche and many other dishes similar to those I had in Lima years ago. the roasted giant corn kernels that arrive when you...are seated are to die for (make sure to ask for some if they don't arrive right away.) Like so many restaurants these days, it's very noisy, so avoid during prime time if you want to have a conversation.More

I have been trying to reserve a table here for weeks. It was well worth the wait. The food was spectacular - taste and presentation! The service was friendly and attentive (Shot out to Eduardo!). While the restaurant was packed, the noise level wasn't bad...at all. We could easily have a conversation. I can't wait to go back, looking forward to trying everything on the menu.More

We enjoy good ceviche, causas, and other types of Peruvian food. Their pulpo is done to perfection both of the times we had it.This place is the real deal. Their pisco sours and chichi morades are also top notch. Service is uniformly excellent.

In the heart of March’s tender grasp, We ventured forth, my love and I, To a haven where flavors danced, And secrets whispered in fragrant air. The Ceviche Sampler graced our table, A symphony of ocean’s bounty, Tantalizing my seasoned palate, Yet leaving my wife’s...taste buds untouched. Empanadas followed, golden crescents, Their dough cradling savory mysteries, My wife’s choice, met with a nod of approval, While I, drawn by deeper currents, chose differently. PESCADO A LO MACHO, a name that resonates, A melody of spice and sea, I savored each morsel, eyes closed, As my wife’s laughter wove around me. Service, a gentle breeze, guided our voyage, The staff, attentive as moonlight on waves, Explaining dishes with reverence, Their care a soothing balm for hungry souls. But fate, capricious and unseen, Lurked in the shadows of our feast, For as stars blinked awake beyond the window, My wife’s world twisted, unraveled. Diarrhea, a tempest uninvited, And vomiting, a storm of distress, She suffered, her body betrayed, While I, untouched, pondered the enigma. Was it the Ceviche’s citrus kiss, Or the Empanadas’ quiet embrace, That led her down this treacherous path? I cannot say, for I remained unscathed. And so, we stand at life’s crossroads, Our hearts torn between memory and caution, The restaurant’s allure now veiled, Its taste forever entwined with uncertainty. We may never return, my love and I, Yet the echo of flavors lingers, A bittersweet refrain, etched in time, For I, too, once reveled in its embrace.More

Ok I love this place. I love it so much I ate here twice in one week. Happy hour is fantastic. The old fashions are super yummy but the best is the ahi tune. Of course so many other dishes were fabulous! And I tasted...many.More

When you eat well and the service is impeccable and the atmosphere is great and you have a fantastic evening, you need to write a review. We were four adults and three kids, walked in without a reservation and were served and treated perfectly. Thanks...again, team! Great work! Superb food!More

My partner and I were craving Peruvian food, so we set out to find a place with good reviews to visit, enjoy delicious food and have some cocktails. We found this place, went without a reservation and found it packed with no available tables so...we decided to sit at the bar instead. We ordered a seasonal cocktail with mezcal and a special pisco (pisco rosé), both of which turned out to be spectacular—some of the best we've had in the area. Then, we ordered some appetizers to try different dishes, including ceviches and a special dish with avocado and shrimp, simply wonderful. This place deserves all the praise and I'll be back soon.More

The food and service in restaurant are a 5/5. Really fresh and quick and friendly service. For groups - I'd recommend to use Open Table to book two smaller tables as I didn't get a response from the web form or voicemail.

Authentic Peruvian cuisine in the heart of DC. This vibrant and bustling restaurant is good for a romantic date, families, groups of all sizes. Tender octopus, spicy tuna tartare, traditional ceviche, lomo saltado, and chaufa… you can’t go wrong! Andrés is an excellent server!

We wanted to try something different on our trip to DC. This place had a fun vibe, great service and exceptional food. We especially loved the dish with scallops and cheese…just amazing. We also enjoyed our sushi and pasta based entrees. Service was friendly, swift...and accommodating. A sure win if you’re looking to impress a date or celebrate a special occasion. 🥰More

Made a Friday night dinner rez after reading all the reviews and this place did not disappoint. Made it early, 530, so we could take advantage of their excellent happy hour cocktails- which did not disappoint! Started with the yucca and it was good. For...mains we had the Chupe de Camarones (shrimp chowder) and lomo saltado and both were superb! I was suspect about a chowder for a main, however the waiter assured me it would be plentiful and it was! I loved it. Both dishes had amazing flavors and I highly recommend! For dessert we had the flan and Alfajores (traditional Peruvian cookies filled with dulce de leche) and they were very good. Service was efficient and always available when needed without harping in us. Can’t say enough about this great place!More
