I had eaten at the La Mar in Lima. Having the same name and the same chef owner, we were expecting the same food. unfortunately, it was not the same experience. Food was ok. when we asked for some aji amarillo, we were told they didn't have any. Some of their dishes are prepared with aji amarillo, which makes us wonder, what is it that they are putting in your plates? They did not have Lucuma ice cream, which was a huge dissapointment for us.

This was a restaurant experience that was just not that great. Atmosphere was pretty, not fabulous. Food was okay, not delicious. Service was adequate, not great. For the prices, not what I wanted to experience. The food tended to be over salted. We did have a couple of fried appetizers for the table before our first course - please skip - tasted like old oil. And we must say that lomo saltado terribly bland, and terribly mushy, with no contrast in textures it was just unpleasant. with something, oooh, as I try to remember my stomach flip flops - really unappetizing and not a great way to begin the meal. All in all, clearly, not going back.

I first came in and i was like WOW!! this place is so pretty!! I love the vibe of the bar and the music was great!! I was kind of scared to try a cocktail with egg whites in it, but LET ME TELL YOU!! the pisco sours and the maracuya sours were freaking amazing I had like 6 of them! I was there for happy hour so even better , i didnt even have to break my bank!! Next I tried the cebiche along with some empanadas. They were a great accompany to the drinks I was already having! I definetely will be back!!

Went with some girlfriends for a night out to be seen. I had read this place had a lively bar scene, and I am always up for trying something new! We all had a Pisco Sour, and I was soooo embarrased when the delicious ceviche arrived. One of my girlfriends tasted one and yelled out "I loooooooove Uni!" People turned around, but we just laughed and then went on to a delicious Arroz Con Pollo. Love this place!

This is our second time to La Mar. Our first visit was mediocre but I was willing to give it a second chance since my visits to their restaurant in Chile have been very good. This time we had a reservation for a party of 8. We arrived only to find that they had arranged a table for us right next to the bar downstairs. The main restaurant is upstairs, with a very informal bar downstairs. We asked to be seated upstairs as we should be, but were told "take it or leave it." We asked to speak to the manager, who also told us take it or leave it. I mentioned that it would be a shame to lose 8 customers, but amazingly he replied "I don't care, we are doing well enough that we don't care about any bad press." My advise is go somewhere where your business is appreciated.

Went for La Mar for dinner on Saturday night with 2 girlfriends. The food was amazing! We had a few Ceviches but our favorite was the Uni and Scallop. For mains - we loved - the Sudado - Grouper and the Octopus dish - Heaven - Just like when I was in South America. Not sure if the restaurant is under new management but the service was so much better than the last time I dined there in December. I definitely recommend La Mar for a nice lunch or night out. One tip - Try and sit upstairs!

When I heard of the opening of this restaurant i was excited until the day i went to the restaurant. I sat in the nice bar and expected an authentic peruvian pisco sour, instead recieved lime juice. It was disappointing. The bartender did not even know what type of pisco were available. Just by going to the bar made me not want to try the food.
