    This is a very cute place to dine if you're ever in the area. The food was quite tasty and our party enjoyed the variety of dishes that fit everyone's cravings. I would definitely recommend eating at Jaranita and if possible, request to be seated in the back patio where there is an indoor tree!

    $15 per person no-show reservation fee I would postpone until my first Michelin star. $20 mandatory tips for 6 people (presumably large) party is meh too. Food is ok though

    The food was all very heavy. The cauliflower appetizer was too spicy and didn’t have much flavor beyond the spiciness. Terrible beer selection. Way over-priced.

    Mediocre food. It is not Peruvian food, it is a fusion (Asian-Peruvian) No pisco sour, only sake-sour (taste water + powder flavour)

    We joined Jaranita for their Sunday PJ brunch! Was such a fun experience and food was amazing! We sat in their center courtyard and enjoyed a free bottle of champagne as we toasted to good times in our PJs! Highly recommend for a quick date and even a group outing for brunch!

    Not a lot of selection, but the dishes offered were excellent. I loved the ambiance of the back room, where it was open light but still warm because it’s not open air. The waiter was patient because we had kids and were slow to order, overall a great experience.

    I found Jaranita online based on the neighborhood it is in as we were meeting a family member. When we told people we were going there multiple people said how good it was and they were right. It is a festive space and the back dining room is spacious. Our server Zula was attentive and charming. The food was excellent. We have traveled to Peru so we have high expectations of any Peruvian restaurant here. Everything was so tasty and well executed. The empanada sampler is a great group appetizer. The Jaranita salad was delicious! Our entrees were also very well prepared. All in all we’re were very pleasantly surprised as we had never heard of Jaranita before. I would not only recommend it but will plan to go back there.

    Alejandro always takes very good care of all diners who walk in inside and out. These days I find it very hard to receive excellent customer service in any industry overall. Jaranita continues to deliver excellent customer service and value for the food they serve and that's why my husband and I always keep coming back. It's not just the food, it's the welcoming staff and atmosphere that makes us feel at home.

    The food was really good! The prices are a bit high and the pitcher pricing doesn’t make sense as you barely save a dollar or two by ordering a pitcher. I ordered a pitcher and the drink separately and the separate one was way better :) a note to the management to the team :)

    Food:delicious but pricey for the amount and the type of food. We ordered the $36 lomo saltado. We thought we’d share an appetizer and this meal but we left still hungry. The appetizer we shared was the roasted cauliflower. Spicy sauce covered it but it was delicious. We sat at the bar and the bar tender didn’t acknowledge us for longer than acceptable especially since we were two of four at the bar. The place is trendy so you’re paying for the location.

    There were things that were very tasty and things that needed taste. For example the ceviche clásico needed more lemon but the empanadas were great. The pork wasn’t great for me, a little bland and the skin didn’t taste great the aeropuerto viejo on the other ya f was great which is the reason why I’m giving it a 3

    We ordered mostly small things and they didn’t space things out. We had to send things back and ask to have the remade so we didn’t have everything at once. They were apologetic. Also, waiter guided us to order too much food despite asking him for help. Food was very good despite service issues.

    Jaranita has been consistent with their service and food offerings. This is one of the two Peruvian restaurants I continue to visit, endorse and promote. It’s very hard to find the true Peruvian flavors. Ceviche Criollo is a must and the Lechón Crocante was hands down the favorite. The pork belly was perfectly cooked, the skin was thin and crispy without the excess fat. The escabeche de yuca was simply homey and delicious with the right amount of citrus. The anticiclónica de carne was well portioned as well and seasoned pretty well. The beef was on the hard side but overall good.

    Food was good, I was surprised not to see many more Peruvian dishes on the traditional form. I respect what their mission, but they should never forget the true Peruvian roots. I think also some good Peruvian music (not necessarily live) would have been a nice touch Food was a bit expensive for the portions they offered. But quality was good. I think some pictures of yunzas around the restaurant will be great for the ambiance they want to create. One big miss: no Peruvian desserts. I had a 2pm reservation and was early for my time slot, I was able to be seated but the lady working at that time could tell that was not happy to be there and gave me attitude, not really customer service oriented.

    Best seat is in the very back with the decorated tree and skylight. Took my wife here for our first anniversary and can say we were whisked away to Peru. Drinks were great, servers were amazing and provided us with some great recommendations, and the food. From the appetizers to the main dish every plate was esquisite and flavorful. Played delicately and served in a timely manner from start to finish. Highly recommend if you want great food, good ambience and a picturesque view.

    I liked most of the food a lot. One member of our party ordered the $69 steak. It came to the table 20 minutes after all other dishes and when it arrived the steak was barely warm. The manager was horribly rude stating that it wasn’t possible that the steak wasn’t hot. What?! It was bizarre and offensive. I don’t think I’ll go back simply because if there’s a problem I know the management is unwilling to do anything to resolve it.

    Loved this place :D Went for my birthday and the servers were so welcoming. Service was so fast and food was delicious. Only reason why I gave it a dock was because my friends got the prickly pear cocktail and its taste wasn't for us (although presentation was gorgeous). Otherwise, beautiful decor, great vibes, and one of the only places that was accommodating for my larger party size (10 people). Will definitely be back!
