The food was delicious. I really enjoyed the presentation and the flavors. I went for restaurant week, and we had a great time. I definitely want to go back.

The service was awesome. The server was very knowledgeable about the food items - whether it was spicy, sweeter, or saucy! The food was very good and will visit again!

I am normally a huge fan of Pisco y Nazca, but this weekend's service was absolutely disappointing. I don't know if it was because it was restaurant week, but the food was subpar and our server completely neglected our table. Another server noted all the plates and lack of water that had been sitting there for over 40 minutes and approached us. he offered us a round of free drinks and a free dessert; which we were extremely grateful for. All in all, the dining experience was not great and am I not sure I'll be coming back anytime soon.

The server was rude and never came to check In with us because we were part of the deal of restaurant week it seems he was bothered by that .. he also forced us to order from the brunch menu when it was more than 3 PM and i know there was a lunch menu available at the website .. but yeah he was careless with the treatment.

Chef Pedro Lopez was so personable... we learnt so much about the cuisine from him. Definitely a revisit to try more of his delectable ceviches.

The food was pretty good. Service was absolutely terrible. Our server, Angel, was so rude. Completely ruined our experience. I would not recommend this restaurant and probably will not be back.

Amazing first experience - will definitely be back. The food is the perfect combination of traditional Peruvian with a funky twist. There’s something on the menu for everyone. Our server was pleasant and timely. Overall the food and service was exceptional and we can’t wait to go back.

OK, packed Thurs night in DC. Had to ask for the waiter a couple of times, although the manager saw me looking for him and came over immediately to help. Food was good, panko shrimp appetizer could have had larger shrimp. Lamb was good, nice flavors, not over-cooked. Tables a little close together. Would go back, just not on a busy night.

My only regret is not having come sooner! We took advantage of restaurant week and it did not disappoint. The food came in huge portions and was delicious. Definitely get the tostones. You could make a meal out of those alone. Their pisco sours were worth the price, too. I got the Passion Sour and could have drank them all night. Top it off with the Pionono a la Mode for dessert. We'll definitely be back for happy hour, too!

Wonderful friendly service, just the smells from wonderful food embraces the diners. My ceviche with an assortment of seafood in a wonderful spicy sauce thrilled my pallet. My main course was the lamb shank over grilled rice so tender, juicy juxtaposed against the creamy and crisp rice. I had to take dessert home for tomorrow, but a wonderful dining experience. I will return.

My friend and I went in for a restaurant week lunch, and had a phenomenal time! The food was delicious, although the portion of the first course was too large for lunch, I almost ate it all anyway because it was so yummy. The second course was even more delicious, for both of us, perfect portion, phenomenally delicious. Our waiter was knowledgeable and paid great attention to our needs, and a woman I assume was the manager came and spoke to us twice as well, which was really nice. To make it all even better, we were back at work in just under an hour, which is the length of our lunch break. We will definitely be going back many times!

Ate here at New Years Eve on an expensive price fixed menu. While the food and service was very good, I look forward to trying again while not handcuffed.

It was alright. We pick the bar instead of sitting in the dining room. It worked out perfectly. I wish the bar staff would be more attentive to its customers though

Food was excellent but the service was lacking. The server was very slow in refilling our drinks, not cleaning our tables and not very friendly. It was our third time here and after spending over $150 in brunch for two, i would expect nothing but excellent service.
