Open for lunch/brunch and dinner daily, the lively dining experience is anchored on shareable plates bold in flavor and bright in taste.

The classic ceviche was the highlight of the meal, but overall none of the flavors were of the high quality I've come to expect from Izzard's other restaurants, and with a recent meal at Girl and the Goat offering larger, tastier dishes, better cocktails and quieter ambience for an almost comparable price, I'll probably skip Cabra next time around.

We're big Stephanie Izard fans, and have been wanting to get over to Cabra. It was worth the wait. We enjoyed the offerings, and while you might think you need a lot of small plates, we didn't walk away hungry. If you like ceviche, then this is your joint. Definitely will be back, but probably in the summer.

We dined at dinner last night at Cabra (Peruvian), which is located on the top floor of a hotel. Our food was quite good, reasonably priced and our waiter was knowledgeable and helpful. The menu is designed to encourage sharing dishes and the three of us shared all our dishes. The only drawback was that the restaurant is quite noisy (if you are sitting inside at dinner).

the food is delicious but the portions are really small (even for small plates) given the price. Second time here and the service just isn't great. Not sure I would come back -

lunch only - poor menu selection with very little focus on true Peruvian dishes. The server described it as "American". Starters were delicious with main courses just about acceptable

We really enjoyed our brunch. The setting and ambiance were the best part! The food was unique and very good. Fun to share. Not too crowded on a Sunday.

The food is absolutely amazing.
However, the biggest part of the night that I remember, aside from the fantastic food, was the noise. I literally could not hear the waiter speaking to us, that's how loud it was. He was 2 feet away from my face and I still couldn't hear him.

A friend and I met there for brunch.
I had the fries and chorizo. Not sure if it was a dish recooked multiple times, but it really hurt my stomach, and I was sick for the rest of the day.

Food was excellent across the board, we had a variety of ceviches (shrimp, tuna, wahu) all were incredibly fresh, buttery, and the marinades were to die for. The chorizo frites were addicting and the fried fish plate and Swiss chard empanadas were great as well. Cocktails were on point, great selection of pisco sours to choose from in addition to extensive beer and wine list. Sweet potato donuts were incredible, definitely need to try! Good vibe in the restaurant overall in terms of atmosphere. Service was casual but personalized and our server Andrew was super personable, attentive, and knowledgeable. Overall amazing experience and kudos to the front and back of house team. I’ll be back!
