Pretty expensive is all. Even without alcohol, our bill came out to $47 without tip. Sans Groupon. Still worth checking out, though.

Great food and waitress. The staff accomodated my request for different side dishes than the ones on the menu. THAT GOES A LONG WAY TO SATISFY THE CUSTOMER. I WILL BE BACK WITH FRIENDS.

The music is too loud on weekends. It was so unbearable that we had to come back on a Sunday afternoon. But the food was definitely delicious!:)

The service is a bit slow. The waiter wasn't very attentive. I would suggest going here if you have time and if you aren't starving .It probably took the one waiter for the whole restaurant 25 minutes to take our food order. If the service got better we would definitely be back with another groupon, otherwise it's a bit too pricey without one..

It got really loud and turned it to a club after 10pm. The conversation turned into a yelling match. Other than that the place was great.

From Our Editors

Music from live folk bands, DJs, and karaoke crooners fill the cozy interiors of La Peña while servers deliver platters of authentic Ecuadorian cuisine. On many nights, dishes of empanadas with green plantain and ceviches with roasted dry corn emerge into a dining room filled with the spicy tunes of DJs or live performances of Andean folk music—a safer way to fill the air with culture than floating bubbles filled with hot sauce. House-made sangria and imported Ecuadorian brews appease tongues, priming throats to belt out popular tunes during karaoke.
