The food was good, though some dishes were not as good as they had been in the past (perhaps it was the day of the week). There seemed to be only one waiter working, so the service was pretty slow at times. We had a large party but had made a reservation, so were surprised that they were not prepared. The drink selection as always was top notch, and everyone enjoyed most of their food. Not my best experience at this restaurant, but willing to go back and try again.

Went to Inca Social with family and friends for the first time to watch one of the soccer games this past weekend and the atmosphere could not be matched. The energy in the restaurant made for an exciting lunch and everyone enjoyed themselves during the games.
The service and the food did take some time but that is completely understandable seeing the amount of people in the restaurant; it was crazy. My boyfriend and I ordered the lomo and tallarin saltado which were both filling and tasty. The steak was tender and juicy, just as it should be.
Overall, we all liked coming here and will definitely be back again!

I got there and they said I didn’t have a reservation. It too so long to get my first drink. My friends order food and waited probably an hour to get the food. My friend have to return the plate twice food was not properly cooked. One of my friend’s chilcano was basically pisco and ice. These was during the soccer game. Obviously they are not ready for big crowd.

Mixed feelings about this place. The food I received was quite good, but the people I was with did not enjoy their dishes as much. The empanadas were exceptional. The place has an extensive beer selection. It seems like a good place to come with a crowd to watch a game.

My only quibble is that it is a little loud. Even someone at the bar twenty feet away talking in normal tones sounds loud. Love the Inca balls!

Everything was delicious at Inca Social. I will definitely come here again.

A few things--
The AC was not on or not working. It made for a very uncomfortable dining experience.
It is not really authentic, the Chaufa was fusion, but still good.
The appetizers are small and pricey for what they give you, but really good.
Our entrees were delicious, and decent sized. Chicken chicharron was not authentic chicharron compared to what I had from other Peruvian places, but still good.

Service was great, food is good. I recommend!

Food is excellent, very modern yet they have kept the original Peruvian recipes maintaining the taste. The service is great, on Father’s Day i think they were super busy and service was a bit slow but other than that we had a great experience.

Great food. Great atmosphere! But service is extremely slow even when they are not busy. I live in the community where they promote their business and have been a few tines now, they won’t check in my open table reservation, even after I reminded them this visit. They charged extra for unlimited mimosas (only 25 cents. But it’s the principle ) despite having to wait for service and exceeded the 2 hour maximum while they waited on a group of family friends. I want to love this place but customer service is definitely lacking. If you don’t want to go out of business like the last place, you’re going to need to step up your service levels, improve the approach to your clientele and honor the marketing streams you generate.

My husband and I both enjoyed the Inca balls to start, the waiter suggested that we do half cheese and have beef. Both were delicious. For our entrees we ordered the same thing. The Lomo Saltado, which was very good! My only complaint about the dish is the ratios were off. The amount of steak, french fries and veggies were off. I felt as if I had way too many French fries where as my husband had way too many tomatoes. However taste wise the dish was on point!

We have a wonderful brunch the food was great. They do such a great job making sure the food has such great flavors. Many times you go into restaurants and the food is so bland. I hope they keep it up and if there are any changes it's to make it even better. The drinks are also very delicious. I love that there is such a great variety of beers from local breweries as well.

I loved this place. The food was outstanding. I loved our server, Allison, and the other services were polite and efficient as well. Price was quite reasonable, too. I live in Charlotte, MC, and was here for a weekend to visit my hometown. I’m also half Peruvian so I can vouch for the authenticity of the food. I’ll be back

My Fiancee is Peruvian and I have been to Peru numerous times . I ordered Tacu -Tacu which was excellent . My fiancée enjoyed her meal as well . The owner came to our table and introduced himself and bought us and order of Ceviche which was excellent . Ceviche is a big thing with my Fiancee's family . they get together and make it all the time and critic each other on it . She loved this ceviche . Inca Social gets an A+ in our book .

Food and drink were awesome. I normally like the standard beer. I had “tried” 5 beers and thoroughly enjoyed everyone. They weren’t your standard beers; they have a variety of IPA’s and sour beers I normally wouldnt have. The quality and quantity of food absolutely blew me away as well.

Filipe was absolutely amazing. He is a stud. Every table was detailed and made a seemless transition for every customer. I highly recommend this establishment. Well done Inca Social!

If you have tried the authentic Peruvian food you will be disappointed: 1) the "pisco sour" was watered down and tasteless. 2) The ceviche was not good either. Fish was overcooked, sweet potato came from a can.
The lomo saltado and pork chicharron were okay. The hot sauces, the flan and service were good. They have a good selection of beer.

I went to Inca Social on Feb.16,2019 around 5pm.
I do NOT recommend this restaurant if you are familiar or if you tried and liked Peruvian food before.
Why did NOT I recommend Inca Social? Because their food is everything BUT PERUVIAN FOOD.
1.Classic Ceviche has a white cream juice that tastes yogurt or cheese. Classic Peruvian ceviche has lemon only. Also, the tiny piece of sweet potato tasted powder cinnamon.
2.Chicha Morada, very vey sour
3.Empanadas kids, it came with HOT salsa. Little kids do not eat spicy hot salsa!
4.Lomo saltado, taste everything but lomo saltado
5.Took about an hour to get our order on out table
6.Waitress was not familiar with the “Peruvian” dishes

Food was great, well seasoned and with a lot of flavor but service was awful. Service was awful, food and drinks took forever to be prepared. Drinks got confused at some point and another drink got to our table by mistake. We waited for an hour before the food got to our table. Waitress kept forgetting to bring the drinks and constant reminders were needed. We asked for some yellow sauce and only one side was brought to the table quite stingy a little bit!

We made a reservation, yet had to wait 20 minutes past our reserved time. They did not "reserve" a table. The food was good, but overpriced. Good beer selection. Seating was cramped, was squished between strangers. The noise level could be lowered a little. Overall, good food and atmosphere but overpriced and poor planning.
