Everything was delicious but the beans didn’t taste right. They had a sour tinge to them so I asked them to take them back.

The reason this restaurant is receiving such a poor review is because though my reservation was confirmed and the restaurant’s “open” sign was illuminated when I got there, the whole place was locked up with no sign of people inside. I tried to call to cancel my reservation but since no one was there I was unable to get through to do so. And as a result I couldn’t officially cancel my reservation on Open Table, which mean that I couldn’t make another one elsewhere. The whole thing was really troubling but I hesitate to give the restaurant a poor review since it might have been an error on the OpenTable side of things. Either way, everyone who uses this should know. I hope the problem gets addressed.

The food was quite disappointing. Although the Pisco Sour was delicious, the food was bland, the avocado salad had brown avocados, the ají de gallina was very watery and the cau cau de mariscos was basically not edible (was the seafood frozen?). If the owner and/or the chef are Peruvian, they should be ashamed. If the chef is not Peruvian, well, there lies the problem. Would never come back here.

First time here. I really appreciate how open the main dining area was. Y’all glass windows that can slide open to provide an entrance to the sidewalk to allow fresh spring air in. The food was great, I had lomo saltado. However the service was not what I expected from and ast village location, let alone in NYC. I sat down, received my appetizer then my main course, still did not receive utensils. I had to go up and grab a fork from the bin, myself. What really bothered me was that I ordered a glass of red merlot Argentina that never came to the table. I probably will not be coming back.

mancora is the place to go for peruvian style food in a simple and authentic atmosphere...there are lots more upscale places, but this one simply serves generous portions of good food at reasonable prices...
the coupon deal is misleading....you dont get two dinners for the cost of the coupon, you merely get $12 off the bill, after the $18 you pay in the first place...truth in advertising can avoid surprises..
especially love the ceviche and the soups....

Food was good, but service was very slow. It was valentine's day after all but it was obvious they didn't have enough staff on duty. It took us over 30 minutes to get our dessert alone and we could see how long it took other tables just to get there drinks. Overall there food is good but there service was lacking. Additionally, they made a mistake on the check and charged us an extra ice cream charge. They were obviously rushing and not prepared for a busy night. Be wary if they are packed with people.

Mancora always delivers and never disappoints! I always come for the ceviche and drinks, but the fish taquito has to be the best in the city! Love this place more every time I come.

Mancora was a bit of a disappointment. I ordered their chef’s special 3-course meal and was underwhelmed by all three courses, especially the duck, which did not had unrendered fat instead of crispy skin. The service was good and the vibe was pretty chill.

I use to go to Mancora when they were on the other corner normally I would say that the food is amazing full of flavor, lots of options and very good service. However it was horrible we sat there waiting for our food about 30 to 45 minute, with only being addressed once after waiting 30 minutes. Once the food arrived we ate it however it was because we were hungry not because it was good! I score them at a-10!!!!!!

I’ve had better Paella. The Red sangria tasted like medicine. The margarita was much better (I tasted my daughter’s). The waiter was not very attentive and took a while to ask if we needed anything.
