Friendly staff and quality South American style food, especially fishes, ceviches, and drinks. Good for a group or family or couple.

Parva offers a good happy hour of attractively priced drinks and small plates. Their entrees are not quite as successful; the loma saltado, for instance, lacked a deep savory beef flavor which this dish at its best has.

Food was great, the service wonderful, and the tequila list was entirely satisfactory. The only thing possibly lacking was a better selection of mezcals - there were only two of which one was the highly questionable Monte Alban…. Would highly recommend this place and look...More

1 waitress, probably 1 cook, very slow service. Food was OK, but have better Peruvian food in the area. Parking was not bad that evening, but generally a problem in that area.

Not worth it. Much better Peruvian food available in Rockville or Wheaten. Because it's in Bethesda, it's overpriced. Worse, the food is OK at best. Won't go back.

As more South Americans venture north with their cooking traditions and ingredients in hand, North Americans are getting the chance to sample these new foods and flavors. THE PARVA RESTAURANT BAR & LOUNGE has the Nuevo Latino cuisine as one example of the global gastronomic exchange that happens today, a fusion of traditional Latin flavors with global food trends. The rest of the world has become interested in the cuisines of South America, and new combinations will emerge. But the time-honored culinary traditions of Latin America remain intact. If you have not explored them already, new or old, don't miss out. You will fall in love with South American food. Our Chef now showcase Andean products such as alpaca meat, grains like quinoa and kiwicha, and unusual tubers such as yuca and maca in sophisticated new ways.
