La Casa De Pedro
Great dining near to NewRep TheatreCasa de Pedro is a great choice when combining dinner out with a show at the New Rep Theatre. Two of our party ordered the evening's special, and the other two ordered off the menu. All were very satisfied. This was our third visit, and we'll be going back again!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to Casa de Pedro onWe went to Casa de Pedro on Cinco de Mayo. The food was DELICIOUS! Pedro himself walks around the restaurant chatting with people at the tables. Our waiter, Pablo was friendly, had good suggestions on what to order and he even got me one of the mustaches that they were giving out for the occasion! Unfortunately there were no more sombreros left.
We had a GREAT time!
To quote Arnold, "I'll be back!"5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Neighborhood restaurantWe went there last night (my 4th time), and I have not seen this place busier... must have something to do with Cinco de Mayo!
This place is relatively quieter on weeknights.
The energy of the place did not affect the quality of service though.
Our appetizer (ceviche) arrived fast, our sangria (a bit weak IMHO... should have stayed with the margaritas) too.
My Cordero, medium rare, was indeed medium rare and delicious.
My GF's Pabellon Criollo was typical, traditional fare but that too was flavorful and generously sized.
There will be a 5th visit there... just not on crazy weekend holidays!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe has a phenomenal meal here.We has a phenomenal meal here. My sister has a complicated digestive disorder and the chef came out and went out of his way to accommodate her. It is rare that she can enjoy a meal like this. The food was incredible and we had a great time. I can't recommend it enough.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good food at ok prices.Really good food at ok prices. Good service and pleasant surroundings.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMTrip to Venezuela minus the airfareGood South American food, mostly Venezuela influences, great selection of quality drinks - Arepas appetizer is a favorite, as is the trout, salmon, and almost all the meats dishes. Restaurant is in a rehabbed former Army building at the Watertown Arsenal; the huge space (20 foot ceilings) is nicely decorated, and helps make the festive buzz seem not too loud. People were there with kids, for date night, and lots of groups both small and large. We were there on a Saturday night and they had live Latin music (Santana-ish), an added bonus. Very comfortable, very fun. Table was ready at Reservation time, and the waitstaff was friendly and helpful.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best Paella anywhere!Can't wait to come back when the outdoor seating area is open. They have a very good mix of Spanish, Mexican, and Venezualan dishes. I had the best Paella EVER and the drinks were very good as well!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMy daughter, a friend andMy daughter, a friend and I went to the restaurant for lunch before we were going to attend a function at the Armenian Library and Museum of America in Watertown Square. We were pleasantly surprized at how delicious and fresh the food was! We figured it had to be good as there were many Spanish speaking people there and we figured they would know great Latin food! Definitely planning on going back! Everyone was very friendly. Food took a little longer to get to us but we figure it was because they make everything so fresh!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMpretty goodCasa De Pedro is a local favorite of mine, and this time it was great as usual. Every time I eat lunch or dinner there, the food is consistently tasty and fresh. Takeout has been a hit-or-miss recently. When I order a salad with grilled chicken for dine-in, the chicken is hot off the grill, the veggies are fresh, and the presentation and service is always great. Same meal for takeout has proved disappointing - last time they sent me home with a salad covered in chicken that had been sitting out so long that I could barely bite thru it.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSouth American brunch menuSouth American brunch menu was interesting and portions were very generous. The food was flavorful without being too spicy. Waitress was attentive but did not hover even though we stayed 2 hours catching up with friends. I am eager to return to try other items on the menu including tapas. The parking is easy once you find where you are going in the old Watertown Arsenal development.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcelente ambiente. Muy buenaExcelente ambiente. Muy buena la comida típica. Venezolana.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an early (5:15) dinnerWe had an early (5:15) dinner reservation, and found a lot of small children seated nearby. All reasonably well behaved but still a bit loud. I think we might find a different crowd at a later hour. I had a red snapper special with shrimp and mussels that was delicious. I love the yuca and plantain that come with almost every dinner entree - of course how can anything deep fried taste bad? My dinner partner had a something traditionally Venezuelan that he also enjoyed. The coconut flan for dessert was also delish. We will be back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my 5th time hereThis was my 5th time here and once again pedros delivers. The live band always makes the dining experience more likely and enjoyable. The service was a little slow but it allowed more time to enjoy the mohitos and the live band.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAt first we were seated byAt first we were seated by a screaming child, but we asked for another table and we were moved some where quieter without an issue. My husband was given the wrong dish for lunch, but the waitress recognized it before she put it on the table and they had the other dish out in a few minutes. So while there were a few minor problems, they were resolved quickly. We've been for dinner several times, but this was our first time for lunch. I was impressed by the size of the lunch entrees.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for pre- or post-theateGreat place for pre- or post-theater meals. Good mixed drinks. We loved the shirt steak with chimchurri and the osso bucco, though portions were too large. We were seated in a corner round booth, perfect for 6 people who wanted a conversation. The live music was fun but would have been too loud to allow conversation if we'd been sitting out in the middle of the dining room. The waitress was friendly and informative, and vigilant as a hawk about spotting an allergen on my special meal - she found it and sent it back before I even noticed a problem. She was obviously very well trained about food allergies, which I appreciated!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good food and serviceWe are regulars at Pedro's going back to when he had his old place in Watertown center. The food and service were excellent as usual. They have great live music on Friday and Saturday nights too. The Cordero was delicious! Thank you Pedro!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty and FunSuberb food, very tasty and nicely presented, with a great many options: there is something for any carnivore here. Also most of the dishes are Gluten Free, and the staff seems well versed in this. Caipirinhas are a bit sweet: more cachasa please! When the band plays the noise level rises and it is hard to hear the company you are dining with. Try and get a table in the back away from the noise if this is going to bother you. Waitstaff and Maitre d' make you feel right at home. All in all, very tasty, and fun in a group or small outing.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe bar was very crowded withThe bar was very crowded with a very loud crowd. The food is very good, with some specialties from Venezuela and Spain. The service was overly attentive, but definitely excellent.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
