A greeting with Plantain Chips and a spread is a refresher from the -usual restaurant- bread baskets, and the suggestions from our [totally informed-simpatiquisimo] Peruvian waiter to try one of the (intriguing varieties) of 'Pisco' Cocktails was a smasher for starters! The explosion of [mildly] spicy sauces over fresh fish slices (Tiraditos), hugely unique Kernels of Corn, Red Quinoa mixed into an Avocado/Mashed Potato is fantastic! The Seafood Rice is great, and if you want to try something different: the Beef Hearts with potatoes. And please, don't miss the [out of the Ball Park] Cebiches! The experience is definitely “from the restaurant, to the airport to the Destiny: Peru! This authentic [one-level up] cuisine broadens the senses, so embrace them! Thumbs-up to the Chef: his obsession is the food!

This restaurant brought me back to my vacation in Lima! The sounds and flavors are traditional and will keep you coming back over and over. Service is wonderful, friendly, and superb!

The last time I had such great cebiche was when I was in Lima. Served with all the traditional side of choclo. The leche de tigre was delicious! We also enjoyed the empanadas and antichos. The antichucos was so tasty, we ordered a second serving. The restaurant has an excellent wine and cocktail list including the famous Peruvian Pisco Sour.

This is definitely the place to try if you want quality Peruvian food. Be prepared to spend some money on it, but it is definitely worth it. Its like a mini vacation to Peru. Make your reservation on Opentable. Tables are hard to get on walk in basis.

One of the best Peruvians and restaurants in Manhattan in a great location. I have been to this La Mar several times and have not been dissapointed.
the portions are a bit small, but if your order appetizers, main course and dessert, you will definitely be satisfied.
One of my favorite dishes here is the Ceviche Nikeii. i also love their arroz con pollo and arroz con pato. for dessert their picarones are as good as they get!
The drink menus are a must try! different variety of sours made of Pisco.
always looking forward to visit La mar when visiting Manhattan.

One of the best classic ceviches I have ever tried. If you want to try real authentic Peruvian food, this is the place to go. Make sure you know what you are ordering though. The house speciality tends to run for about $40 per plate but is something very unique and delicious. The place is very nicely decorated and the alcoholic beverages are to die for.
