"Overall, a good experience and good food. They were able to accommodate for our large party at the last minute. Only wish that they did a better job with the bottomless mimosas!! Several times I needed to ask for a refill. I wanted more !!"

"The food was amazing! There were four of us, we started with the Ceviche Chifa and extra Plantians, Fabulous! Even my husband who doesn't like Ceviche loved it.
For entrees, we had Adobo De Chancho, (slow braised pork), Aji De Gallina (pulled chicken stew in aji amarillo cream sauce) and Pescado Sudado ( poached Mahi, clams in Ahi panca chile broth) to die for!
The waiter was a delight, attentive but not over bearing, there when you needed him. the Ambiance is colorful and just makes one feel happy.
We can't wait to go back, there were so many other items that we want to try!

"While our waitress was very nice, the service overall was extremely slow. It took awhile just to get menus brought to us after we were seated. And we literally had to ask for water and our bill. Those things should be automatically provided. The food was good, but not anything amazing. With all the other great options available in the neighborhood, I probably would not be returning."

"Duck entree was superbly cooked (med rare) and presented, worth sharing between 2 guests as a big appetizer. Crab salad, although quite tiny (large amuse bouche size), was delicious. Albondigas lamb meatballs were incredibly dry & over cooked, we should have returned them to the kitchen. Our server was fabulous, attentive, understated, an asset to the restaurant. She was patient with all of my friend's questions and also gave excellent wine advice. Our hostess was an excellent greeter."

"Service was excellent. Restaurant is clean and interior decor and lighting is good.
Overall, Fresca is a good chain but to be honest our meal in this new link in their chain had too much salt. Was drinking lots of water that night. Something so simple is not forgivable when you are paying well for their food.
I'd give them 4 stars but the salt issue is a real problem. I'll give them one more try before writing them off. Could have been a mistake by someone in the kitchen."

"The food is very good here, a balance between what an upper class Peruvian might eat and the chef's experience in Europe. I sometimes find the food a bit fussy - too many ingredients - but that seems to reflect the Peruvian basis of the menus. One of my companions found the rice too spicy but the lamb shank it went with excellent. I had branzino (sea bass) cooked whole against fire, and it was perfect. The reason I didn't give five stars to the restaurant is that I feel the need to leave room for those outstanding restaurants found occasionally and not in every city where the food is exquisitely better than even the best."

"I found the food to be fair but not great. We started with Ceviche which was overpowering in lime to the point of being distasteful. I ordered the pulled pork which came with rice and beans.
It was so salty that the flavor was lost. I think perhaps the chef needs to have someone else sample his/her cooking as obviously there are some taste bud issues there.
