Mango Peruvian Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The food, overall, was pretty good. However, our service was terrible. Being in the service industry when the wait staff is less than subpar I like to take into consideration how busy they could potentially be. Unfortunately for Shelbie, our server, she was not busy she was just absent.
Outstanding! I left a note on the reservation that it was a birthday dinner and the table was decorated with confetti, and the servers all told him "happy birthday" all night, not to mention the free dessert. The food was absolutely delicious and drinks amazing, also. Very very happy with our evening.
I took a group of honors Spanish students to Mango, which has been one of my favorite restaurants since it opened at McKenzie Point years ago. The food is fresh, healthy, and perfectly prepared. The service is friendly, and the staff is happy to speak Spanish with you if you want. There are lots of vegetarian and fish options. I especially recommend the ceviche and the causa de salmon. When I used to enjoy a cocktail (never with students, obvs), I loved the pisco sour. All of my students loved their meals. The only other observation I have is that the service was slow, but I suppose that is normal with a large group (12 people).
We have been to this restaurant several times and always enjoyed the meals in this relaxed setting. Food is excellent! We were disappointed that the empanadas were sold out at 6:30 pm so we will need to get there earlier next time. Comment about noise level is because we were seated near the bar and were frequently interrupted by the sound of the blender.
The food and service were great. I would give it 5 stars, but I was bothered by the large TV's all around. I believe the fine dining experience is marred by the TV's in every corner. A TV at the bar should suffice for those interested. The food was well presented and delectable.
Unique and amazing flavors. Enjoyed empanadas and deliciously tender beef skewers for appetizers. Empanadas were not as crusty as we expected but still yummy. The plantain chips and cilantro puree dip was addictive. We split the beef tenderloin which was incredibly flavorful as were the sautéed veggies. Sangria had a cinnamon flavor which was different than most red sangrias but fresh and enjoyable. We finished with flourless chocolate cake which was dry and not appetizing. Except for dessert, this was a delicious meal. With appetizers, 2 glasses of wine and 2 glasses of sangria and an entree we paid less than $60! Such a value for a flavorful and delicious meal. Our server was friendly and helped us understand the menu by describing the food and spices. We booked an early dinner before a concert which worked great for us. There were several TVs with the Masters playing so it could be a fun spot for watching other games. The ambiance may be better for a later evening dinner and it could be a great spot for late night snacks and drinks. We ate at their former location and enjoyed it and really enjoyed the new spot. Would highly recommend for yummy food, casual atmosphere and great value.
I was pleased by the ambiance of the venue upon entering but things went south fairly quickly. Another arrived after we had and received their appetizer before us. When ours came out, it was given to the table next to us causing us to wait another 20 minutes for ours. Our candle had not been lit and even after asking it was after another reminder that ours was. It was about 5 other tables in our area so they weren't that busy but things appeared chaotic. After receiving our drinks, the waiter was busy and hadn't returned to our area for a while and I was thirsty so I drank mine even though I didn't like it. I told her I was okay with the drink since our food should be arriving shortly. After sharing that, she insisted that I got something that I would prefer. I thought this would be on the house for our experience but received the bill and had been charged. When our appetizer was coming out, one server almost gave it to the wrong table again, but our waitress intervened. We had an event at the Peabody that night and our experience there was a bit dampening of our even. However the comedians we viewed more than made up for this experience. Alternatively, the food was delicious and so was my second drink, peach or mango daiquiri.
This was a very disappointing experience. Our servers' attitude was luke warm, at best. At least it was warmer than some of the entrees, which came at all different times, leaving our party to eat single file so to speak. To boot, they gave us the worse table in the place. All this for what was supposed to be a special occasion. Will never return.
Wonderful food, from the plantain chips and cilantro dip served as we were seated (and refilled during our stay) to the favorable appetizers (we had the mango salad and the sauteed shrimps ) and the entrees ( we all had the fish of the day, and we all loved it!).
We got in for early dinner (had tickets to a concert) assuming we could be in and out within the hour (which did not happen) . Even though the place was almost empty, it took a while to get the food and we had to search for a sever to get our water filled during the very long wait.
Attentive service would have made this meal a perfect experience.
This was our first time having Peruvian food and wasn't sure what to expect. We were blown away. Trust the reviews you're reading and go here. The banana chips and dip they serve complimentary are outstanding and highly recommend the corn griddle cakes as an appetizer. If you aren't sure about which main dish to select, rely on your server - they will know which dish fits your style. We had Kelsie and she was awesome!
Don't leave without eating the plantains and caramel.
Service was good and food was delicious - especially the green salsa served with roasted plantains right when we sat down. Our only issue was our server forgot about my dessert cocktail, but didn't charge us for it so it wasn't a big deal. Overall the place was lovely and the food was great.
Ceviche and Pisco sour were excellent! Entrees were good, and tasted fresh and healthy. However, our server's unfriendly, dismissive attitude combined with her slow, inattentive service made our experience overall a disappointment. Not what we expect when we're spending that much for a meal out.
As always ... this was a great time! We've been here for six straight anniversary dinners and the staff is always very accommodating, friendly, and willing to make our visits here an enjoyable experience. We always look forward to dining here with friends or just the two of us.
Note ... the 2012 Cal Blanca Tempranillo needs to breathe so order it early.
