Posted by Food is Great But The Wait Not That Good. on 09/03/2011
Good food but they aren't that authentic any more. If you want to experience authentic Peruvian flavors, none of the Fresca restaurants will give you the best experience unfortunately They used to be my absolutely favorite Peruvian restaurants but not anymore. Nevertheless, they do have some good dishes like Pan con lomito. Very delicious. Just be prepare to wait and wait for your food. Two out of the three times we went there we waited for about 45 min. The last time, we preordered and waited only 15 min. So we will be doing that if we ever go back.

Just came from dinner at Fresca and it was the best meal I've had in a long time. The ceviches are a must if you love seafood. I had the sea bass with mushroom risotto and it was outstanding - not a term I use lightly. The only negative part of our experience was that the waiter brought us the wrong bottle of wine. He was very apologetic and offered to bring us the bottle we ordered. In the end we kept it and enjoyed a new Spanish wine we wouldn't otherwise have tried. All in all, a great experience.

This is a must try for anyone that is interested in a new experiences. The Lomosaltathos is fantastic combination of beef, green peppers, onions, tomatoes on top of rice. Definitly a must go.

Crowded, yes, but not overrated, as long as you aren't thinking fancy. The crowd is young but not overly hip, and the crowded tables make for some very loud dining. However, the food is lovely. This is a great place for a party; not a great place for a date. The ceviche is very fresh and light, although the crab cake should come with a sauce that isn't so sweet. We followed with various kinds of meat: lomo saltado and the ribeye. The lomo was an upscale version of classic Peruvian stirfry, the meat of better quality and the onions just on the right side of soft. The ribeye was perfectly done, crisp on the outside and red on the inside. With wine, before tax, each meal came to around $50. Not bad. Not bad at all.
