We ate outside and there were bees everywhere. Our servers were slow and nonchalant. The food took a while including drinks.

My first brunch experience at Pisco y Nazca was good but not great. The food we got was excellent but their was a hiccup with our order. First, the good: I had their version of eggs benedict and a friend had the huevos rancheros. We both thought our entrees were tasty - I think the hollandaise on the benedict could have been a bit more flavor forward but was still pleased. Also, I love the chicha morada at Pisco and enjoyed two glasses of it - yum! Nor for our issue - we put in an order for a mixta empandas (one chicken and one beef); the plate we received had two chicken ones. We informed the server, who diligently went to get an order of beef empanadas, but when the second plate came out, it was again of two chicken empanadas. By this point, we had finished our meal and the server was very apologetic and removed the empanadas from the bill so the issue was addressed. But I love Pisco's beef empanadas so I was a little disappointed to leave without getting them. Oh well. Not enough of an issue so as to not go back - because, as I mentioned, the food is delicious. And we were able to sit outdoors on their patio which was pleasant.

Probably one of the better restaurants in this specific location. The outdoor patio is nice and we had a fantastic server. The food and drinks were below average, but the pricing is reasonable leaving room for improvement on the overall experience.

Excellent service, food and atmosphere. Showed up 20 minutes before our reservation and got seated right away. Happy Hour on Friday went until 7:00 and they were great drinks.
Strongly recommend and I can’t wait for o go visit again.

My favorite restaurant now! Had friends in town last night and took them here. So amazing.....I love the Tuna Nikkei and Pescado Macho, their drinks are so good too. Highly recommend the Guapo Chilcano or the passion fruit Pisco!

The food was very good. But the causa, especially the sampler, could be improved. I would like to see the traditional form of causa (meat in the middle) with avocado.

The food was the most disappointing part of the experience. The servers were somewhat attentive but not attentive or mindful. For example, I ordered a site of eggs and they brought them without the main course or any other food for that matter

Our first two small plates were amazing!!! Our main dishes were a little less wow. Our server was fantastic as far as service but because of the place being very loud it was really hard to hear her in the mask. Not her fault but tough situation. We would definitely recommend for a Peruvian experience as far as food!

We ordered the yuca a la huancaina, arroz con mariscos and tostones. It was the perfect amount of food for 2 people, very light and refreshing seasoning so a good option for dinner.

I wanted a table outside and was told it was going to rain and if it rained they couldn't guarantee that I would get a seat inside. The hostess was rude. PS People ate outside since it is covered and it rained and they were served.

The service was slow and I had to ask for a waiter. Also, I order two items and only one came.

I love this place, but was disappointed by the service.

I was really looking forward to this place that was highly recommended by a good friend but found myself very disappointed. We wait over forty minutes for the food that arrived very cold. The service was good and the ambient was fun but don't see myself going there again.

Food was excellent, but the service took longer than expected. I ordered bottomless drinks but had to wait over 20 mins each time for a refill (after flagging down the waiter) - so not sure I’d return for brunch again.

Food from Restaurant Week menu was excellent, especially the ceviche, which the whole table raved about.

White sangria was also a hit. The caramel dessert was too sweet for most of us, though.

Attended an early Sunday bottomless brunch. Was pleasant, but I have to admit the place was rather cold in temperature. Not something that I'd normally ever consider either.
