Yum! My husband is Colombian so when we were in the area, he wanted to find a place where he could get some authentic food - especially chicharron. He got the Bandeja Tipica dish which is a typical platter with different types of meat, plantain, rice & beans. I had a chicken dish with mushrooms (Pechuga en Champinones). Apparently it's... More

Our dinner's were very good. So why just average? The presentation of all the dishes was lacking. Not poor presentation, just lacking. The morcilla appetizer came in on a dinner plate that was too large for the single link with just a couple of pieces of lime. For it's size, it should have come in a saucer with maybe some... More

My wife and I lived in Colombia for almost 30 years, so we are always looking for good Colombian food. Stopped by yesterday and the bandeja paisa was very good and authentic along with a good lulo juice. Disappointed that they didn't have ajiaco, but we understand that is not a specialty of the Paisas.

This place serves plenty of Colombian dishes most of which are delicious. I always end up with a second order to go. The food is great but the service is not, they're very slow in taking orders, replenishing drinks, serving food, bringing you the check, etc. Beware, the place is small, small bar area and crammed tables. The prices keep... More

First time at a Columbian restaurant. Glad we chose this one. Great service, food and value. Didn't want an app but the manager insisted...empanada with an amazing tingling dip. butterfly trout that filled the plate for me, jumbo shrimp in a garlic sauce for her. Excellent.

We stopped for lunch and had the specials. We both got soup, entrées and soft drinks for $16. By the way, get there early for lunch because the place was packed by noon, for good reason...good food at a good price is a winning combination.

I'm not really sure why I have only been here twice in nine years. The lunch specials are very affordable and they certainly are not shy on the amount of food they serve! The chicken with mushroom sauce was very juicy and plentiful along with the rice and plantain. This definitely makes me a big fan of Colombian cuisine! I... More

I visited this place with a friend while watching a Copa America match last weekend and had a great time. The food is fresh and very delicious. Portions are huge. Had the pork chops with rice, beans, plaintains and the empanadas as appetizers. They also have typical Colombian food. The waiters were very courteous too. It's good for families and... More

I recently found this place at random and will probably end up eating here a few times per month. The food is authentic, very tasty, and the service you get here is great. Their empanadas are very reasonably priced and are probably the best I've had. They have a great lunch special every day and it appears that they change... More

I recently had the opportunity to dine here and what a fantastic experience. As a 16 year old I lived in Colombia as an exchange student. The meal I recently enjoyed at Los Paisas brought back so many delicious memories. The food is perfectly prepared and presented traditionally. The menu is extensive, the staff friendly and knowledgable and bilingual! The... More
