“Unique”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Real Peruvian food. Waitress was at ease explaining the different things on the menu. Try any of the dishes. Breads are really great; ask for seconds!

“Good but the same peruvian food you get everywhere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Nice place, nice decor, seating was a little cramped but still managed to squeeze myself for a good time.

The service was not ok, they should train better their staff. It was slow, had to ask for things more than once, and were not familiar with the wine list,  thats a bad signal.

Anyways... food was very good, as an appetizer had some causa, octopus in olive sauce, parmesan scallops and a tuna nikkei ceviche.   The ceviche was more than good.

After that tried a steak with gorgonzola and chicha, and it was nice, the steak as such was excellent, loved the blend.

The problem now with peruvian restaurants is that at least by my point of view they all taste the same. You find the same dishes, but not only in the traditional ones but also in the fusion side of peruvian food.

That is why I rate Adriana with 3 stars, its very good, but its not something different from other peruvian places.

Will I go back? Ill say yes,  may have to think about it, but yes.

I have always liked Peruvian food and Adriana has a way of
decorating each dish beautifully. There are some delicious
appetizers that are great for sharing.

“Excellent authentic Peruvian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

I was looking for an ethnic restaurant in Bal Harbour and was happy to come across Adriana's. The reviews were right on the spot! Excellent Peruvian food, attentive service, and fantastic drinks. Girlfriend and I ordered appetizer Adriana as a starter which was delicious. It was actually large enough to share for 4 people! We felt pretty satisfied even before receiving our main entrees. I had classic cebiche and gf ordered risotto with meat and wild mushrooms. Cebiche was very good, extremely fresh. A bit heavy on raw onions, but that's just my taste. Risotto was cooked perfectly - al dente and had a deep mushroom flavor. Drinks deserve a special praise at this place! Coctails are to die for. I had coconut mojito and lychee saketini. GF ordered pisco sour . All were phenomenal. We enjoyed the athmosphere too. The restaurant is not big, so there is a nice intimate feel to it.
Prices are although not cheap, but reasonable for the amount and quality you get. Clientele is certainly upper-middle class and very good looking -:)
