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 4 out of 5 by Food and portion sizes were great! Service was a bit slow and not very attentive for an almost empty restaurant. Aug 30, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by The service was poor, we were the only ones in the restaurant and and I have three kids with me, first of all this place is not family friendly, the food that I order for the kids was extremely spicy and I asked the waiter if it was spicy he said no, he lied we ordered chi ha morada a peruvian drink it was so watery it was made with the powder drink it wasn't made with real stuff, I had to be asking for napkins and other things the waiter seemed to be bothered, the bill came to 206.00 I think the service and food was not worth it, very disappointed never going back to this place.

Rated 1 out of 5 by The waiter was not unfriedly. As soon as he saw that we had a voucher his attitude was even worse. He got the order wrong and was very not attentive to us at all. The food was not bad but I will not be back because of the kind of service provided by the waiter. We still ended up spending $75 in addition to the voucher with tip of $19.50 which I do not think he deserved. Jul 3, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by prices were to high, quality of food just par, portion of food very poor. Expected to receive a nice portion for $25.a plate. Server was pleasant, no utensils on table. May 10, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Service was lackluster and the food was nothing special. Apr 27, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by The atmosphere is better at night. Though lovely during the day the lighting is more suitable for evening. I wish I had gone later just to see it. If you are not the biggest fan of seafood probably keep an open mind for the majority of the menu as I did. Apr 11, 2015
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
