Wonderful brunch! Excellent service and a fun atmosphere, even in pandemic times during an ice storm. The fixed price brunch menu is a great value -- lots of GOOD food.

Every time I come here the food and drinks get even better! Although it looked busy we always have one of the best services ever! The music could be a little louder to add to a great brunch out but that’s just a personal preference.

We came for Valentine's and ordered the VD pre-fixe. We didn't think the menu would be enough for two, but we left with to go boxes!
We'd recommend the Pisco flight! Three very good samples of their Pisco Sour cocktails. We stayed with the Traditional ceviche, always good there! However, we should have tried the Callejero because a Peruvian friend said that is the BEST ceviche on their menu. Maybe next time. We had the Causa Crocante, very good. There was some other appetizer made of scallops but it was not as good, lacked the flavour compared to everything else we had that night. For the entree we shared the Seco de Res, outstanding! Super tender meat and while it was a very simple dish, it had great flavour. It came with rice and beans.
The two desserts were the some kind of cheesecake dish and a disappearing chocolate lava cake "dome thing", very impressive presentation! Both were excellent!
Overall, we will continue coming back to Pisco y Nasca. Highly recommend this place, especially if you want great Peruvian food!

My husband and I ordered the tasting menu. It was great! This is probably one of the best values for a tasting menu in DC. They made us feel very special. They even personalized our dishes. I highly recommend Pisco. It was a lovely experience.

Phenomenal food! I was very impressed and I am extremely difficult to impress. Elevated Latin food that is bursting with flavor. Beautiful restaurant that is perfect for a date night. The staff is very professional and friendly. Highly recommend the Tostones with pulled pork and also the Cheesecake for dessert. Made a reservation to come back on my way out of the restaurant- it was that good!

Wow! The food was incredible and the service was impeccable. The manager visited our table a couple times just to check on us and the quality of our food. The servers were very kind and considerate. Very timely service and I can't emphasize enough how delicious the food was. I will be taking friends here once they can travel again ;)

Amazing as always! Food was delicious. We tried the restaurant week special and it was super tasty. I really love the pulpo causa and chicha morada churros I must say they really should be part of the regular menu. Service was excellent as usual and the manager Jose was on top of each table to make sure everyone was having a good time!
Thank you :)

Pisco y Nazca is my favorite restaurant in the DC area. The $55 tasting menu during restaurant week provided my date and me with the most incredible culinary tour of Peru. They even made in-the-moment changes to the menu to accommodate dietary restrictions.

It was our first dining experience at Perubian Cousine on Rest Week. We really enjoyed with main courses and Chicken dish from first course. However scallops from the first course, it was cold appetizer we were assuming hot appetizer due to we didn’t eat and no body ask are you ok with that dish. Also we waited too long for (food ordering) and having first courses too late even rest has couple of tables. Pisco sour was okay it was too much foamy and has strong egg white taste. My wife loved Moscow mule with Pisco. Servers were so kind and cheerful. Thanks again..

The food was delicious. Authentic Peruvian food, unlike what I have been having in the metro DC area. This hit the spot! Coming from Miami, I would say this is what a Peruvian restaurant should be. Service and food were excellent. Definitely coming back.

I was expecting a lot less people and more distancing between tables due to COVID, I thought that was the point of making reservations during the pandemic. I will wait until the pandemic is over to return to this restaurant.

Delicious food and drinks. I had to get my third course to go because I was so full. My friend couldn't even finish her second course (Chaufa de pollo) because the portions were very generous. I am excited to try here again.
