We love Inca Social!! Paola was amazing, she made sure you had everything we needed so we could be comfortable. We go there a lot for their bottomless mimosas. The only thing this time is the waiting times for mimosas was longer and some of us never got the food we ordered. We had so much fun though that we didnt mind at the end. We will definitely be back probably this weekend again haha

The ceviche is fantastic, and the lomo saltado. The service could have been better, they brought out the appetizers and main dish at the same time, which hampered the whole dining experience. Nevertheless, I would definitely be back and be much more specific when ordering.

Been a couple times, thought I’d give it a shot once again. Wait staff were very friendly but took over 30 mins to get a beer. The manager checked on us a few times which was nice but I felt like i had to constantly remind the staff what I needed. Didn’t seem too busy since they can only seat 50% capacity outside at the moment. I’ll probably just stick to drinks with friends next time.

Ambiance & decor was chic, and the service was good. Everyone in my party thought the food had too much salt and the food was average at best. Drinks were good. And the live music was a good move for the restaurant to draw in more people.

Food felt like they tried a little too hard. Traditional Peruvian dishes but with modern flair that took away from the overall “roots” of the food. Beautiful restaurant

The food is really good! The ceviche is to die for but unfortunately, we didn’t have a good experience with the service. My two friends and I went for lunch and it was moderately busy. We sat for 10 or 15 minutes waiting for a server or someone to come by and serves us water or ask what wanted to drink. No one came until there was a group that was sat right next us and a server came right away to serve them water. We felt like second class citizens. After calling on someone is when he were finally offered water. The staff should be trained better because is obnoxious to have to wait 10-15 just to get water and it was only because I called on someone.

We all left extremely disappointed with the services and wish they hadn’t been so obvious that they didn’t want to attend us.

Service wasn't very good; Our waiter spent more time chatting with the girls up front (hostess) than checking on our table. The check at the end was almost double my real check. They had added what another table order humm? Food was ok. I tried pretty much what everyone order. The anticuchos and the causa frita were very good, but Ceviche not so good, also I try the meat in both pasta huacaina and pasta verde and both meats were too thin overcooked and hard

Arroza mariscos had very little flavor and very amount of mariscos

I think it has potential, but needs significant improvement in service and food. Will definitely give them another chance

The ceviche is so good. Maybe because I really like the acidity. They have a $9.99 special everyday. A specific main dish with a 5oz beer to pair. That’s a better deal than the other restaurants surrounding it. I’m a local resident so I’m not just saying that to say it, I’ve got the bills from the other places. Music is great and the servers are chill. Owners are on site so if you have an issue they will personally attend to your needs. Definitely a place to try. Portions are fulfilling for sure.

Food was average, portion was small, plating of food could use improvement. Waiter took order in time, but never came back to refill water or ask if anything else was needed, we had to signal him when we needed something. We drove 50 miles to come there, but was disappointed.

Although portion sizes have decreased the authenticity and quality of food surpassed my expectations based off of my last visit during the first week of opening. I will go into a little bit of detail below.
There are two staple peruvian dishes; Lomo saltado and Ceviche. I also enjoyed a chicha beverage and the tres leches dessert along with a glass of wine.

I am always hesitant to order Ceviche from any restaurant in the area as the reviews are not reliable. I have gone to very well spoken restaurants and over paid for ceviche and have always been disappointed. In fact there is a Peruvian chicken place with better ceviche than most of the restaurants in the DMV. There is a huge misinterpretation of what Peruvian Ceviche is in the DMV area. Now this Ceviche was spot on and as authentic as it can get. With the Live ceviche your cheviche chef will explain what to expect when making/ordering ceviche. The leche de tigre and the aji used to make it tasted amazing compared to my first experience here.
My date was a person who never liked the idea of ceviche and wasn't willing to try more than a small bite on my last visit. This time we split the Ceviche as we couldn't get enough. Not to mention the Lomo Saltado which was rich in flavor and as authentic as it gets.

My advice to anyone is to stay away from these very pricey Peruvian fusion restaurants as they are mainly for show and to give Inca Social a try. The service was amazing and our waiter was most attentive. They even honored their Wednesday wine special as we went on a holiday week they were not promoting it. I will most definitely be coming back to try more from the delicious menu and highly recommend this place for anyone to try. Let Inca Social set the correct standard for what to expect when eating at a Peruvian establishment.

My wife and I had dinner here this past Saturday evening. We have eaten at many Peruvian restaurants and, without a doubt, I would rate this as one of the top 2 or 3 restaurants. The food is absolutely delicious and the service staff go out of their way to provide a wonderful, attentive dining experience.

I would (and have) recommend Inca Social to anyone looking for a delicious meal and great service. If you have not tried Peruvian cuisine this would be the place to try it. You will love it!

We'll go back many more times.

Went to Inca Social for the first time earlier this week and everyone enjoyed themselves. It just so happened that the night we were there an employee had brought her pet Alpaca which definitely added to our festive mood. The food is very good. My husband ordered the chicken which was excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meals.
