Lima's Taste specializes in authentic Peruvian recipes that were passed down to chef Nelly from her Grandmother while growing up in Lima Peru. Nelly was tugging on grandma's apron as the women in the neighborhood would gather in one another's kitchens trading recipes while preparing feasts and dinners. Some of the dishes can be traced back to the Inca civilization - such as the Escaveche. This chicken or fish dish is seasoned with Panca peppers, vinegar and garlic. Onions and yucca surround this novel dish. The Incas used this dish medicinally for respiratory ailments. We invite you to experience our Peruvian Ceviche. Fresh, ripe fish and seafood, absorbing and cooking in the juices of lemons & limes, spices and seasonings. This makes Peruvian Ceviche one of the healthiest foods one can treat their body to. Experience the taste of the Causa which is a spiced up mashed potato ball stuffed with avocado and, seasoned chicken, or Russian salad, or shrimp. Or be adventurous and try The Anticucho skewered chunks of grilled cow heart an amazingly tender and beautiful piece of meat comparable with fillet mignon. Speaking of fillet Mignon try the Lomo Saltado cubes of fillet mignon, tomatoes, onions, and French fries, stir fried together and seasoned with Peruvian spices. Lima is a seaside city in Peru, so don't overlook the Picante shrimp, scallops, squid and baby octopus seasoned and sauteed in a creamy pepper sauce that will take your taste palette to a new land.

Rated 3 out of 5 by There was only one server so the wait fir food/drinks was long and my chicken was under cooked and had to be taken back. Mar 16, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Mediocre food, surly waiter, high-ish prices. Feb 1, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by While some of the food was alright, this didn't even seem like a restaurant. It seemed like half of the menu items wasn't available including specials and this was only conveyed 10-15 minutes after orders were placed. The waiter was nice, but seemed disinterested in what was going on. The food was pretty plain with few spices and overpriced. Jan 21, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by The place is cozy and very casual. The vibe is like a neighborhood place to grab some dinner. However, the quantity of food you get is paltry for the price they charge. My husband got the chicken escabeche and got one tiny, very very thin slice of chicken breast which was hard and dry, for $25. My 3 tiny salmon skewers were ok. The sauces were flavorful. The service wasn't overly attentive but nice enough. Jan 20, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Food is really good but very expensive. Service was ok Jan 2, 2015

Rated 4 out of 5 by Food was very carefully portioned and got smaller and less generous every time we went back. Seems that the restaurant is not doing well to be so sparing. Oct 31, 2014
