The food is excellent and the restaurant is charming. There are numerous choices and all are good. Food was brought out piping hot.

Only negative is that it is so popular it can be hard to get a seat. Wide variety of Peruvian dishes and wait staff a great about suggesting the best dishes. Decor is casual but not too casual. Just not a really fancy place.

I had the lenguado (flounder) and it was excellent! The fish was very fresh, but the plate was skimpy on vegetables. The empanadas were not good. I felt like they get the empanadas frozen from somewhere and then they just heat them up. The menu states that the empanadas are "crispy" and "crumbly", but those terms are very long stretch!...

I love, love this place! I came here tonight with my family for dinner and had the Seco de Cordero and ceviche, soooo yummy! Also had the homemade lucuma ice cream, which is to die for! I can't wait to go back again next weekend, wish this place had a location in California, where I am from!

Beyond the grilled chicken which everyone seems to ignore...this restaurant has fine dining food! We had the Mixed Ceviche that was wonderfully served with blanched onions over fish, shrimp and cuttle fish. It was so refreshing! Then we had the Pork Belly flamed with rice and black beans. It was so flavorful and unexpected!

Had their lunch special consisting of sopa de pollo and picante de carne. Liked the soup but didn't think the dishes tasted anything special to warrant the listing of this restaurant in the Washingtonian Magazine 100 very best restaurants in the region. Believe the food critics, do you? Many of the ethnic restaurants within a mile can rival or outdo... More

Dear La Limena, We have been to your restaurant two times and love the food! Our first visit was so perfect – the food, service and I especially enjoy how the Pico Sours tasted exactly like the ones I had in Peru when my husband and I visited Machu Picchu. Your food reminds us of a wonderful trip! Although we... More

Awesome meal as always. Order the ceviche mixto for appetizer; it is on point. My wife had the lomo saltado while i had the lamb shank. Both were excellent. For dessert, we shared the passion fruit mousse. So good. Definitely recommending this restaurant to friends and family.

Ate dinner here tonight. No wait, fantastic and quick service. We had the empanada (fabulous) and tamale (good) to start. Then both entrees were fantastic, fresh, and served hot. I am not a Peruvian food expert but this was good eats, for sure. The price seemed a bit high but this is DC metro so that's no surprise. I highly... More

The only reason I am not giving this restaurant 5 Stars is that every time we go we feel rushed by the staff to order quickly, eat quickly and leave quickly so that they can seat other guests. The food is delicious and they have the best Mojitos I have ever had with the exception of Caesar's Palace in Las... More
