I'm not even giving it a one star. This place is beyond horrible. The waitress did not know the difference between lomo saltado and Tallarin saltado. Jalea (was $22)- made me sick to eat. Fish was soggy and It was cold. Don't even get me...started with the lomo saltado. I wish I would of taken pictures but it was worse than horrible. No tomato's, burned steak (it almost looked like we got served left overs. The french fries were super old, the steak was super well done and it was drowning in soy sauce, no tomato's and "tallarines verdes" was almost a soup. It was sooo watery. This was the first time my son's GF was getting an opportunity to taste Peruvian food-we were so embarrassed. I had to take them to "Happy Fish" so she can really get the taste of Peruvian food. Please don't ever spend your time or your money going to this so called peruvian restaurant.More

Good food and service. My husband and friends had steaks which they enjoyed. I had a rice dish that had an Asian flair and was delicious! The service was fabulous. They made sure that all our needs were met! We will be back!

I cannot be more happy with the food and customer service we received on October 12, 2020. We had never eaten at Cazador Grill before and wanted to try as many new foods as possible. Spencer was SO helpful on the phone, answering my questions,...and is very patient. We ordered the Cazador-with chicken, steak, and pork, and it came with two very generous sides. For our sides we tried one of the two plaintain dishes and the excellent potato cake. Our shared entree ("2-3 person for $45.50, for tons of food!) also came with 2 salads and 2 sauces. For dessert we tried THREE lovely choices: the tres leches cake which was a delight and not overly sweet, just perfect. The chocolate cake is so much better than any other restaurant's cake I've ever had before, and the Alfajores cookies were exquisite! We can't wait to get takeout from Cazador Grill again. Ordering on the phone is super easy, the staff is wonderful, and we are extremely happy with our experience!More

It was the very last night of our 2 week holiday and we wanted to end on a high note. My husband said he’d seen a Peruvian restaurant on our out-and-about-ing, so we looked up the address and punched it into the gps. We were...delighted with everything about this restaurant. The place was spotless, the people were friendly, the decor was typical and the food was plentiful and delicious. A little secret: the Lomo Saltado was probably the best I’ve ever eaten, including many meals in Peru and my own sister’s. Shhh...don’t tell her.More

We came in for dinner and greeted immediately. Liz is an awesome person and really made us feel welcome. The food was outstanding! I had the pachuna with the platanos fritos. Also had the guanabana ice cream and was so good!! We love to find...restaurants that truly represent the area where we are and Cazador Grill definitely does that! We will be back!!!More

I wasn't really sure what Peruvian food was like, but we'll be going back for more. I had the best rice with chicken that I've ever eaten. I took home enough for lunch the next day. My husband had beef with flat noodles. He ate...every bit. The desert cookies are amazing. The wine pour was generous and the service was great. We will go again.More

We were astonished that it enjoys such a good rating. What a major disappointment to say the least! I asked the server to order their most tender steak they had on the menu. The young man (possibly Sebastian who was listed as cashier on our...check) confidently said the “Vacio” (flank steak) was very tender. Overcoming my doubts about this particular cut of beef being tender — thinking that their method for marinating steak must be great — followed his guidance much to my regret. It was extremely tough and basically inedible. I sent it back and dined on a portion of my wife’s pesto pasta with chicken. When the bill came I was charged for my “tender” steak. I asked to speak to the manager and was told he is in Columbia. Then I asked to speak to whoever was in charge, I was told it was the cook who was too busy cooking to speak to me. Needless to say, I included a tip and paid in full, so I could leave and write up this incident as a warning for others. I’ll also reproduce it on Yelp so others might learn of my experience.More

We came here with 8 of us on a business trip. The food was great. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The waitress was incredibly friendly and helpful in giving recommendations. I recommend the limo saltado or tallarin saltado.

We needed to eat in this area before a special event we were attending so I looked on Tripadvisor for ideas. I'm never sure about places in strip malls but this was a pleasant surprise! The service was excellent, the food delicious (we've been to...Peru) and the pricing was fair for what you got. Three of us had the rib-eye steak which was cooked perfectly. The two sauces served with it were delicious additions. The side salad was fresh and the plantains were nicely done. Dessert for us was coconut ice cream, Coconut Flan and Lucuma ice cream. The Flan was a little thick for me (I like it light; not heavy) but the flavor was good. We loved finding this little place and would highly recommend it!More

On business in the Tampa area and looking for a casual environment and a meal with some cultural experience. I hit the jackpot with Cazador Grill! Very friendly staff and they even agreed to help me with my (very broken) spanish language skills! And I...learned a little about Peru in the process too. Highly recommend!More

I had travelled to Tampa for business and had this single evening to go out for dinner. The restaurant was in a sleepy strip mall, so don’t be put off. The service started when I entered the location, by the owners son. Warm greeting, seating...me, getting me a drink and helping me with the portion size of things. I had to ask him about portions because they had so many thing that I wanted to get, but was afraid of a table full of food that I couldn’t finish. I ordered the Pichana, which is one of my favorite cuts of beef in Brazil, so I couldn’t resist. I also got some fried Yuca and Tostones, all favorites of mine. The steak came beautifully prepared, they used only salt to season the meat, which is the best. The meal was delicious and very authentic. The owner came over and talked to me at the end of my meal. She was an absolute treat to talk to. She asked if wanted coffee to close my meal, and of course, expresso! The standard close to a meal in South America. The meal and service was an absolute delight and I was very happy that I had chosen to give them a try. Solo or as a group they would be a wonderful dinner out!More
