First time going to a Peruvian restaurant in a long time. Expectations were high. first I ordered a Pisco Sour, sadly that was the first problem, the drink was 8 dollars and came a little cup, mostly foam. Then as an appetizer we ordered Papas a la wancaina, it came only 5 or 6 pieces of potato, with a nice... More

I have eaten at El Serrano many times and have always had an outstanding meal. The wines I have had have been exceptionally good. The service is very good and sometimes they have live music, which provides a nice touch. This is my favorite restaurant in town!

We often dine at the York El Serrano's restaurant ... they have one in Lancaster, also. Having been to Mexico about ten times, we love the fajitas here better than most places in other cities and countries. The service is very good and we continue to go back to this place. Great eats!

One of my favorite places to eat in York. I'm never disappointed when I go here. The atmosphere is very nice and the food is out of this world. I love their chicken chimichangas and they don't fry them, which is different from most places. I also love the Lomo Saltado... just amazing! If you like heat, ask for the... More

A wonderful small restaurant with different food. The Peruvian food is wonderfully flavorful and full of steamed vegetables and seasoned rice. The seafood was delicious, with unusual seasonings that brought a sweet heat. The atmosphere is lovely, we were in a small alcove, private and quiet, yet fully part of the restaurant. Service was prompt, friendly and courteous. Will be... More

Victor is the chef who started the restaurant. He is an excellent chef and he is from Peru and for this reason the taste of the food is different but remindful of Mexican food but not South-West food.

My daughter recently got married and her now mother in law had the rehearsal dinner at el Serrano I had been here several times in the past and enjoyed it very much initially, then in recent years not so much. The food quality just hadn't been the same, service was slower. Maybe we were just getting there on bad nights?... More

This restaurant was always one of our favorites. My husband and I would always come here for things like our anniversary or to celebrate Valentine's Day because it was always very quaint and not quite as busy as the one in Lancaster. But the past couple of times you could tell that the food did not seem as fresh. It... More
