Nothing special overall. The ceviche was basic and I do not recommend ordering it in the carretillero dish. The calamari/squid is lukewarm to begin with and sits in the liquid, which made it soggy and tasteless. I would recommend a separate small plate for it. Service was attentive when they actually came to the table, but I had to find them.

Went as a fun dinner before prom with my friends, they hadn’t had good Mexican non fast food in awhile so I was glad they enjoyed the food here! Was a bit loud but we were not bothered. Service was great and I wish we could’ve stayed for dessert.

I went there for my birthday/date and it was amazing. My date is Peruvian so he is very picky when it comes to Peruvian food and he loved it too! We ordered the ceviche sampler, causa sampler, choros a la chalaca, and the Lomo a la huancaina. Everything we got was incredible. I also ordered the Chicha Sour...sorry it was the only picture I took. And of course since it was my birthday, he snuck in a tres leches at the end. 😁

Food was fantastic - their method of frying is amazing - light, crispy, not too heavy or greasy. Best calamari and yucca I've had, hands down.

Service was a little spotty, but not enough to keep us away. Forgot one of the appetizers, even after reminding one of the team members. Refills were very slow in coming as well.

Still, overall a very good experience - we'll be back!

The food was too salty or had too much soy sauce and the waiter took forever to come back to the table to check on us and we had to constantly remind them of the items we wanted

The restaurant has a cheery atmosphere. The food is authentic, and there appears to be a lot of beers on tap. The front desk forgot something we signed up for during our reservation process, but the manager/owner took care of the issue promptly. A lot of menu items to try!

This was my second time at Inca there will not be a third. The food came out warm not hot, as if it was waiting in the window for our server for a while. My daughters macaroni tasted like eggs, and my husband beef and rice bowl was all salt. I had steak and needed to ask two employees for a knife to cut it with. The staff kept hanging out in their area eating and chatting.

Nothing like the first time. Sad. The bill was over $100, while the food and service was not worth $40.

Loved everything about this place. The colorful and tastefully decorated interior, the speed and quality of service, and last but not least, the food and drink. The lomo saltado is incredible, as is the ceviche. And the drinks are very well made and fun!

Is a great place to go for dinner and have Peruvian food. I tried the chicken stew and had tres leches for dessert. Be sure to try a Pisco Sour cocktail - was delicious.

Food could have been better for the price we paid. Ordered Pulpo al Olivo, empanadas, causas for starters. Tallarines verdes, lomo saltado, y sándwich de pollo. El pulpo was bland and the bread was not toasted, not a good combination. Las causas were really good; las empanadas were fried, not baked. They were greasy and small. Los tallarines were a pale green, and seemed to have too much milk, and the portion was rather small for a big plate. For drinks, we had the chicha rum and the passion sour, they were good, but the chicha rum was too sweet.

The restaurant was almost empty so the noise level was considerably low/moderate.
The ambience is low lighting which made reading the menu harder than usual for an older man (me) whose eyesight wains at times. Nevertheless, the service was good and the food came out quick. I would definitely come back for the Lomo Saltado which was possibly the best I've had....and try some other items.

It is not my intend to write a bad review because I didn't think the place was all that bad. I just did not care for the food. I have had Peruvian food before, which I like a lot. Somehow the food at this restaurant wasn't anything I cared to try again. The service was not bad; however, the food pictures online looked a lot better then in person.

Overall impression was very good. I’ve never had Peruvian The service was a little slow to take our orders and bring appetizers, which they offered to comp and ended up giving us a $10 off card the next time we dined with them which we were fine with. We started with several cocktails which included a few pie i sours. which were delicious, the Inca balls, wings, empanadas. short ribs, lamb chop risotto special, arroz con pollo, and limp saltado
