Within La Costanera's open, airy confines, Peruvian chef Carlos Altamirano whips up fresh, contemporary Latin American fare for patrons to share with friends or a masked superhero support group. Explore a sumptuous menu of marinated cebiches, tapas, and savory sea-centric entrees while taking in breathtaking ocean views al fresco or through soaring floor-to-ceiling windows.
La Costanera has been featured in San Francisco Weekly and the San Francisco Chronicle. Zagat gives the food at La Costanera an excellent rating, and CityVoters named it the best family restaurant in the area. More than 100 Yelpers give it a 3.5-star average:
- …A “beautiful remodel of the old Chart House” whose “to-die-for” “ocean views” and “quality” regional cuisine (including “great ceviches) makes it a “treat for the eyes and the tummy”; – Zagat
- Some particularly interesting dishes come from the small-plates menu, including the choclo Peruano ($10), huge kernels of Peruvian corn still on the cob, smothered in a cheese sauce studded with red peppers. It's starchy, creamy and delicious. – Michael Bauer, San Francisco Chronicle
At La Costanera, Peruvian-born Chef Carlos Altamirano adds contemporary twists to traditional South American dishes that earned the restaurant a 2012 Michelin Star. A variety of ceviches whet appetites amidst a dining room that the San Francisco Chronicle called "breathtaking by day and almost mystical at night," filled with the soft sound of the surf. Free-range chicken and slow-cooked pork shoulder thrive beneath what a reviewer for the Pacifica Tribune applauds as "dramatic presentation.” Imported Peruvian beers and pisco cocktails clink to toast potatoes reclaiming exoticness by arriving in shades of purple and green, and even simple favorites take on the gleeful elegance of a solid-teak waterslide with the aid of truffle oil or saffron. La Costanera’s 10,000-square-foot space opens onto an open-air patio and glass-enclosed rooms. Windowpanes soaring from floor to ceiling arch high overhead, admitting cascades of sunlight as diners gaze out and give each rolling wave a name and backstory.
