Had dinner with a business associate who suggested this lovely restaurant. I had never had any Peruvian food before so why not. All I can say is wow. I had a cold mashed potato and avocado starter which was out of this world. I had a side of quinona which I never had before. My dinner partner and I shared... More

went there this past Saturday 11/8/14 for a friends birthday dinner and did not know what to expect. First off the service was excellent, they were patient with us because some in our party were a little late. Let's just say they took are of us with what ever we needed. To the food, it was simply excellent. Had the... More

Good Peruvian food. Maybe one of the best in NJ, but the service and customer service is lacking. Was there on 10/20/14 around 8PM, the place was not busy at all, but it took about 10 minutes for the waiter to get to our table. Gave the waiter our order of appetizers, but he would not send it to the... More

I loved costanera when it opened. I went there at least once a month, always ordering the lomo saltado and getting great service. My most recent experience was chewy meat and a disappearing waiter. They took the meal off the bill when they saw I only ate the potatoes and rice and left all the steak, which was nice of... More

We came, party of 4, for an early dinner/ late lunch on a Sunday. We arrived to an empty but beautiful restaurant which quickly filled as the afternoon turned to evening. The staff was delightful, speaking in both Spanish and English. Costanera is a BYOB; there is a liquor store around the corner that delivers or is within walking distance.... More

I've been to this restaurant 3 times, and I plan to go again soon. I have never been disappointed with the food or service, and neither have the friends that I have brought with me each time. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about Peru, Peruvian food, and the food that they are serving. It is a very comforting atmosphere... More

We had a leisurely 3 hour lunch on a relatively quiet Sunday. Our party of four split five appetizers and three entrees. Excellent variety and flavors, personable and knowledge service.

Stumbled on this place for lunch - had a great lunch menu with soup, side, drink, and entree for $12-15. Lamb burger was delicious and the due vegetarianos was tasty, well seasoned and filling for a vegetarian plate. The side of sweet potato fries was honestly the best I'd ever had. We walked away pleasantly stuffed with delicious food for... More

We were a party of six taken there by one of our children for a special occassion. It was our first time dining in a restaurant featuring Peruvian food and we were surprised on how much we enjoyed the meal. We started with assorted appetizers including a huge dish of mussels, marinated articholes, lump crab and two others. They were... More
