From the moment one enters the restaurant the customer service is impressive. While the restaurant's decor is definitely Peruvian, the menu offers a variety of dishes that deliver a tantalizing experience. From the calamari in special sauce, to the scallops, to the pork the food is presented elegantly. The taste is out of this world. This restaurant is a must. Reservations are required.

El Q'ero is a wonderful dining experience. Very tiny and intimate, so book a reservation. The food is unique and tasty. Come with an appetite, meals are large and you will want to sample several courses!

We arrived at 630 Friday night (party of 4) with reservations to find the restaurant at near capacity. It's was our first time here. Looking around the decor and space inside was cozy. We ordered the sangrias, yummy! My husband loved the cut up bits of apples and hint of cinnamon in the drink. For our starters we ordered the ceviche Don cucho and that was simply amazing. We slso ordred the tapas style sampler to include two types of sweet potatoes and a quesidilla like corn meal patty. Overall great as well. For our entrees we order the short ribs, salmon special and the skirt steak. Overall, the meal was delicious. Our must have treat was the tres leche cake which imo was one If the best I've ever had. Will return again for for a special occasion.

Limited hours contribute to am air of mystery that surrounds the founded and ingredient rich distinctly Peruvian menu. Scheduling properly and the requisite amount of patience pay off as the menu comes alive from the eclectic and geo-unique adult beverage choices to the moderately portioned and flavor rich entrees. Close your eyes and pic something; you can't go wrong.
