This restaurant is permanently closed. Mancora Restaurant and Bar takes you on a journey straight to the heart of the Inca Empire. Take the trip aboard plates of our fresh, authentic cuisine served up in a warm, friendly atmosphere. The comforts of a home-cooked meal meet adventurous flavors in every dish, alongside classic Peruvian cocktails.

Drawing on traditional staples from Peru and Spain, Mancora Chef Enrique Peraldo puts a contemporary spin on the classics. Each dish is pleasing to the eyes as it is the tastebuds, presented as tasteful culinary offerings to woo the American palate.
After polishing off a few plates, an evening here feels like scaling Machu Picchu without breaking a sweat — but you’ve still earned the authentic Peruvian dessert you’ve been eyeballing on the menu.

Ordered appetizers, these are traditionally served sizzling, but they were served fridge cold.
Waited 45 minutes for main course. Due to the length of time waiting, I expected food to be freshly cooked. We were served food that was cold and appeared to be from yesterday’s left over. As an apology, a free desert was served - chocolate mousse. The mousse tasted like an old fridge, one could not taste the moose, but instead tasted an old fridge. Definitely never going back.

The food tastes home cooked! To the extent that it feels like you could make it at home. The salsa was a great addition to liven up the flavor. I would also recommend the clan which is AMAZING. Drink are also good.

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 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!!!!!!
