Reviewed By leam69

I tried many Peruvian restaurants in my life and this one is one you can easily miss. The service was terrible even with little customers on the place. They offer valet parking and with a concert in the nearby stadium it was difficult to find a space in the street as they do no reserve spots for their customers. The food was nicely presented but regular. A sampler of ceviches at 20k colones ($40) is arm robbery. I am an easy going customer but this place simply disappointed me, I will not return or recommend to friends.It is very unfortunate what he mentions. In short, these parking issues when there are activities in the National Stadium generate this type of inconveniences, taking into account that our parking works through the Valet Parking.For us it is very important to have more clear the details to which it refers with the service, so if it were possible to obtain your telephone number or email to abound in the subject, it would be very helpful.Thank you.

Go Fish Seafood Co.

Reviewed By rolandlinda1

I recently had lunch at this restaurant and was quite please with the wide menu selection. The quality of the seafood is very fresh and the staff was very responsive. Place is located in a trendy mixed retail space where other restaurants are also located. The prices are a bit on the high side but overall a good experience.

I cannot remember having such a delightful evening in a very long time! Visiting the Escazu area of San Jose for the first time, and wanted to try something we couldn't get in the States. Trip Advisor rated this restaurant quite highly - especially for the price - and we decided to give it a try. It's a good thing we are tenacious, for we had trouble finding it in the dark (it's about 50 meters straight up the road from the sign PRIVE, on the next lefthand corner) but after we finally found it, it was worth every minute of searching! The service could not have been better. I believe our server Vincente may have also been the owner; he was charming and attentive to our every need. He spoke very little English (although his chef partner did) but they offer detailed menus written in English, and he was very helpful in selecting the best dishes for everyone. We shared smaller portions of a good variety of things - both appetizers and main courses - and even my nearly-impossible-to-please son, who is also a chef, was delighted with everything. It was a perfect evening to sit outside and look out over the city lights, with lovely music playing in the background. We seldom waited for more than a few minutes between plates, and yet we never felt rushed. The timing of everything was perfect for us. Our particular favorites were the fried calamari, the tortilla de patata, the shrimp in garlic, and the house-made green peppercorn sauce for the beef tenderloin medallions. We all enjoyed the evening immensely, from young adults to middle-age to elderly family members. I suspect this treasure will not stay hidden for long!

Recommended the hamburger, I visited this restaurant often and the last time the hamburger received was "cold", the waiter said that will replace but he did was to "reheat" the one received and the bread was broken and missed parts. Really disappointed for the good service received in past visits, but this time was really bad. I did not want to complain due to the time and the company because was dining with my wife.The service was not good, this is the true. We´re really sorry for your bad experience, For Leño y Carbón, customer satisfaction is the main thing, and that is why we ask for the most sincere apologies, sometimes situations happen that get out of hand, but our effort is that each customer and each service, is of the best quality. If possible, we would like you to make amends for your next visit, if you would be so kind as to give us another opportunity.

Reviewed By Jodi T

The menu is very comprehensive and includes everything from burgers to steaks to sushi to Chinese food. Really doesn't make sense. They have a huge wine room with hundreds of bottles of wine, but a very short wine list. Food quality was boring at best. Definitely not worth a return trip. Hello Jodi,Sorry to hear your experiences with us was disappoint, we will take note of your comments, specially about food quality, hope you can helps us more point out, what day and time you visit us.Thank you

Not as good as previous visits. They dont take reservations at some hours. Appetizers where small and not as good as before (ceviche with patacones, tuna). One of the main dishes arrived with someone’s hair from the kitchen. Also it was expensive. We sincerely wish they return to their previous glory times.

Machu Picchu

Reviewed By supersquirrel3

The menu has a big alert along the bottom warning you of the 27% service charge for the restaurant. Do your math beforehand so you don't end up shocked, even if you did see it coming (raising my hand here).The service was friendly and attentive but the food took my attention here. What our group had to say about it:Veggie causa: Mushrooms, carrots, peppers, and broccoli on the mashed potato heaven. Very good.Pasta with shrimp: Sauce was unique and super creamy. Shrimp cooked well. Tasty.Chicken with ham: Essentially a cordon blue. Cooked well with good ham. Cabbage salad was tasty.Was it worth the 27% service charge? Depends. If you have access to great Peruvian food elsewhere, no. If you don't, yes. But after a review of our receipt we saw they had taken several hundred colones of the prices of our meal, dropping it lower than what we should have paid. Thank you!If you are not on a budget and want a fancy night out with great Peruvian food, this is the ticket.
