The New York Times
Taste of Perú, with Asian Influences
(New York Area)·Dined on July 8, 2017
One of my favorite restaurants on a quiet street with a lovely backyard outdoor seating area including an outdoor bar.
Family owned and operated with very friendly and helpful staff and the food is really good Peruvian, their ceviches and other seafood dished are outstanding and their paella is the best west of Sevilla.
Small but well selected wine selection and wonderful pisco sours!
Liza Andreoli reviewed Quenas Restaurant — 5 star
We love Quenas, we love the food and drinks. Shirley, her brothers and staff are wonderful. A little of home away from home
Most restaurants peak in their opening week and then get better, not Quenas. While I often have trouble pronouncing the name, I don't have any trouble saying that they've been the only restaurant I've ever experienced that has gotten significantly better throughout the time that they've been in business. Their plating is excellent, the taste is magnificent, and the staff is responsive. I highly recommend trying their food and their Picarones y Churros con Helado de Lucuma desert. It's easily my favorite desert in Westchester.
I don't even know where to begin. Food, phenomenal. Service, unmatched! I stumbled upon Quenas while traveling for business. I was looking for something different than my usual fare but did not expect to be blown away. Blown away I was! The atmosphere is very cozy but feels personal, and not cramped. We served from start to finish by just one exception server, seating and all. From his pleasant and helpful suggestions to his promptness of service were all impeccable. He had a way of disappearing in plain sight yet remained ever vigilant to enhance your dining experience. I would take a sip of water and he would put one back in the glass. I was moving from one course to the next and he was there to offer options and a container for to-go. All the while he never seemed intruding or overbearing. Moving onto the food itself, delicious. The menu was full of authentic and interesting options but I did land on a special. A trout dish, whole served, with anticuchos(beef heart) up front. All of the food was cooked to perfection and plated well. The wine list was certainly adequate for pairing and left nothing to be desired. I would certainly take a date here but could also be nice for a casual meal or business dinner.
