Mango Peruvian Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
I arrived with small children and we were accommodated with a table of suitable comfort for their height and not so close to others that we might disturb them. Food was great as always. We began with empanadas (1 beef and 1 queso). My kids love the chicken anticuchos so we ordered 2 trio platters for their entree. I enjoyed the Fettuccine a la Huancaina and the garlic shrimp were large, juicy and delicious. Ryan was our server and he was very thorough. Tye assisted him with food and beverage delivery. Both guys were nothing short of gentlemen.
Very fun and funky! Everything we ate was delicious. The beef was tender and juicy. The drinks were yummy. However if you're looking for a quiet night out, probably not the best place to go! Lots of people frequent this establishment which is a great sign but it can get rather noisy! I didn't mind at all. But some people may find it to be a bit much!
I was only in st louis for a few days and was glad that this was one of my choices!
We love introducing Mangos to new people, love the Peruvian cuisine. It was a business meeting and the only issue we had was that the waitress kept coming over to check on us making it feel we over stayed our time when there were plenty of empty tables.... service has always been good but she was over the top/slightly annoying.
Celebrated our son's 25th birthday here. Cute but subtle decoration on our table when we arrived. Service was excellent-attentive but not pushy. All of our food was great-the corn cakes were a stand-out hit; would love to have the recipe as we don't get to SL often from Chicago. Several options for another son who is vegetarian. Nice selection of wines.
Wonderful service, we had a large group and the waitstaff was fantastic. The best service I have ever had at handling our diverse group of diners for our business dinner. I plan Delegation group dinners 4-5 times a year in cities all over the US. Thank you Mango for the great service.
Originally, Mango was a small, traditional Peruvian restaurant in South St. Louis, serving fantastic real Peruvian cuisine (and yes, this reviewer does know what that is, after working for 20 years in Norther Peru, where the (original?) owners came from.
Since moving to downtown St. Louis, Mango has markedly deteriorated into what could be described as an upmarket US American diner with a slight Peruvian touch. The ubiquity of TVs with mainstream sports makes the place more of a US sports bar / diner than a restaurant. Moreover, originally staff actually spoke Spanish - something that has long disappeared from the new Mango. So have clean menus - all of ours had grasy spots on them.
The only reasonable fare we (4 of us) got was the Pisco Sour, which however seemed to be spiked with extra alcohol.
The "Jalea Mixta" was a greasy mass of over-fried, rather dry shrimp, and the fish was markedly past its prime.
The "Gambas al Ajillo" would have been something that in any restaurant in Peru (or Spain for that matter, since this is hardly a Peruvian plate) would have got back to the kitchen.
The "Saltado de Champinoñes" (it is actually Champiñones in Spanish - another indication that whoever runs the place and writes the menu has no clue of the language, or the cuisine), a mass of fried mushrooms over pasta, with a spice combination decidedly catering to the US market was imply bland.
The "Saltado de Langostinos" was no better.
Finally, the only coffee available was an US style insipid brownish brew that had nothing to do with how coffee is drunk in much of Latin America.
Overall, Mango has turned into something like USp-food (US with a very slight taste of Peru), and is nothing of what it used to be. If you like real Peruvian food, do not eat here. It certainly was our last time.
Cosy ambience. Well lit. Warm hosts. Good food. Great for anniversaries and private celebrations. That's how I see our experience at Mango. I'm extra thankful for OpenTable for the table reservation service made available to us at such ease!
The restaurant is a little pricier than most others but the service and your experience there is the difference you're paying for.
Outstanding Peruvian meal! Party of five that included one gluten-free diner and one vegetarian - all were very happy with our meals! Delicious cocktails (though the bar service was a little slow), nice selection of tapas and entrees. Don't miss this special restaurant!
Food was very tasty, but for me portions were a little too small for cost. It wasn't absurdly small. They have a very unique menu and taste was very very good. Our waitress had worked there for 7 years, and she was very very knowledgable about the menu. I discussed my wife and I's taste, and the waitress was spot on with recommendations. Overall a great experience.
Mango has an ambience that could carry over to many different occasions. It was a great night out with friends for drinks and dinner. Our waitress Hayden was amazing from drinks and menu recommendations to her outstanding service. The food was spot on from her recommendations. To note...the pitcher of sangria is one of the best I've ever had.
