Peruvian food and cocktails. We only stopped in for lunch to watch the World Cup. Typically they're not open as early. Their fries with sausage and dipping sauces was different, but very good. The sausage tasted more like a hot dog. Nice variety of draft beers and cocktails. My wife had the... read more

My wife and I visited Lima's Taste on Saturday night. It was a great little place in a nice part of the Village. Excellent ceviche!! The plantains were also very good. I highly recommend it!

I digested (thank God) the most horrible food I have eaten in a long time. Why did I eat here? It is simple. I had miles expiring in my credit card and used some of these miles as a coupon for this restaurant....only because it is a very nice area of the Village and where I have my favorite shoe... More

Nice place. The food and drinks are very good. Try the Lomo Saltado, the best i've ever had. The waitress was very kind.

I got off work crazy early today and went for a beer and a snack and enjoyed it thoroughly. Lovely and small, the doors and windows all open with a breeze rolling through as the music played at just the right level. Fantastic service and good food. The staff was incredibly kind and made our food with care. I had... More

Well situated in the lively West Village, with a nice atmosphere but the food is very ordinary, with, ironically the ceviche the weakest dish we had. Service is friendly but not very efficient, slow and wrong orders delivered to tables.

I'm Peruvian and I went to a lot of Peruvian restaurants and I'm disappointed with this one. I prefer Warique in the Upper West 1000000 times more. The food is average here and the service is bad too. It is not fresh food and the drinks are not good either. I want to go to Warique after this.

We went there for a Saturday night dinner. Everything was beyond terrible. The food was bad, they didnt have most beers on tap. The food taste was very terrible & very expensive ($20 for boiled vegetables with sprinkled spices). The ceviche was tiny & soggy. They also overcharged us by adding 20% gratuity on a party of 2? They also... More

My visiting friend suggested that we should try this place because his friend recommended it. I was skeptical, but i said that I would give it a try. It was a major mistake. I had a paella; it was so blend. My other friends had picante, Aji de pollo, escaveche de pollo. they were all mediocre. The service was very... More

We walked in hoping for a nice ceviche that we couldn't find! They didn't have basic drinks options (no ginger ale?) and the service was distant although we were almost the only customers. The ceviche was good but it was more like a carpaccio or a sashimi. I definitely will not store this place in my favorites list.

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
