Diner Reviews
  • "Whether a quiet or busy night, the staff at La Pergola is always at their attentive best."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "La Pergola is a lovely restaurant. A perfect choice for dining in Millburn before/after a PMP show or a leisurely evening out. The owners and their staff make you feel very special and like an old friend. The food is well-prepared and absolutely delicious. The restaurant takes attention to detail to new heights. Go and enjoy!"

  • "We have been here before The food previously was quite good but on this visit was fair at best The service was horrible There was no waiter or waitress The maitre d (who I believe is the owner) was in charge of greeting people seating them, taking their order and serving them, helping to clear the dishes as well as giving them the check and answering the phone There was one other person who would bring out bread and water and help clear dishes as well In a small restaurant I presume this can be done but in a restaurant such as this it was ridiculous Besides taking a long time for the meal to be served no one came back to check on us until it was time for the bill I couldn't get anyone's attention to refill the one glass of water I was given"

  • "We go here often and are never disappointed. The management and staff are friendly and accommodating; there are always interesting specials not on the menu; they give you little extras; and the food is excellently prepared."

  • "Once again, everything was great. Food, service, atmosphere etc. It is quickly becoming my favorite spot, even though I live 1 hour away!"

  • "The food and menu are excellent. Tables were very close together and it was noisier than I would have expected. They got very busy and service attention became slower. The food is so good that I will return but maybe on a midweek visit when it is less crowded. Enjoy."

  • "We arrived 7:30 PM, 4 top in corner, they pointed out, was getting ready. Then table given to a party that arrived after us. It took 15 minutes to get our order taken. When the appetizers arrived it was not our order. Our appetizers arrived 8:15 PM . At 9 PM our entrees arrived, once again we received the wrong order. 2 baskets of bread and 2 bottles of wine later we are still waiting for dinner. Our correct dinner arrived at 9:20 PM. We were so hungry we ate our meals in 5 minutes. My chicken entree was tough. Pasta portions looked like appetizers. 9:40 PM, dessert not an option. Waited 10 minutes for a check, it came, it was not ours. Correct check paid, we left at 10 PM. My thoughts: 2 waiters, 3 bussers, 90+ patrons =bad experience."

  • "Loved the restaurant but not our most recent visit- too many tables jammed in with each other. Service & food timing was extremely slow - kitchen never caught up- extremely long wait between courses. Try it on any other night & you will enjoy it so much more!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I highly recommend this restaurant. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. It was my husbands birthday and I wanted it to be special. It exceeded my expectations. It's on our list of "special" places. It was our first dining experience at La Pergola ... we can't wait to return!!"

  • "We have been to La Pergola now several times and it has never disappointed! Their food is amazing--even to the most discerning palate. The staff is courteous and knowledgeable. The owner remembers my husband and I every time. We always look forward to an evening there! I cannot wait to go again!"

  • "Two things will always entice you to a restaurant. Great food and staff. That exactly describes La Pergola - from the salads to the main entrees. Everything was delicious! Will definitely be visiting La Pergoa again very soon!! I ordered the Branzini - cooked to perfection alongside vegetables and a whipped sweet potato tart. Ambience was so perfect, and I loved the acoustics (along with the Andrea Bocceli music)."

  • "This was our second visit to the restaurant and it was a BIG Disappointment. Reservation honored for the time we chose, waiter showed up and was distracted, did not give us any information regarding the dishes we ordered or if there were specials.. I specifically asked for the sauce to be on the side of my veal, wrong, it was drowning in sauce, covering up the poor quality of the veal that was served. My husbands dishwas liver and again of poor quality and tough to chew. That being said, I am not returning nor will I recommend this dining experience to my friends."

  • "We stumbled upon this restaurant on open table and it will now become a regular place. The food was fantastic all around and the service friendly and welcoming."

  • "Went with high expectations knowing that the dinner would be expensive at a fixed price of 75 dollars per person. It was very crowded at 9PM so we did not mind waiting 30 minutes to be seated despite having a reservation. We ordered our appetizers and my wife was excited to try a shrimp dish which was one of the choices. About 20 minutes after ordering the waiter came out and apologized that they were out of the shrimp. Main course was OK, not great. Then finally we ordered desert and again after 20 minutes we were told they were out of the choice my wife had made (Tiramisu)."

  • "Good food, nice ambiance, polite and attentive staff, charming owner, lead waiter a little over zealous, but tolerable. A little pricey, but again tolerable for a special occasion. This was my second time there and I will go back again. Nice, varied menu. BYOB. They are located right across the street from deck parking. All good! Overall, a satisfying dining experience. Recommended."

  • "Everything is outstanding. This was our first trip to the restaurant – and we are returning this Saturday night. The food was exceptional - creatively prepared - presented beautifully - the staff was knowledgeable, attentive and friendly - the tables spaced nicely. The pumpkin ravioli special was tasty and the sauce had a honey flavor that I made sure I soaked up with bread. The breaded zucchini appetizer my wife had very thin pieces - light and had just the right amount of breading - my daughter loved the buffalo mozzarella. The braised ribs fell off the bone and the sauce was superb, the Parmesan crusted chicken was tender and tasty, the filet my daughter had was very tender and the sauce again was perfect."

  • "We went to dine on 1/25. It was our 1st time dining here. Our friends have been there before. We waited over 2 hours to get our food, and when the food came half the order was wrong."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "The Owners, Driola and Agron never fail to amaze us. They make your feel warm and welcome from the moment you arrive. The food is simply fabulous, prepared well, and presented beautifully. Being able to bring our own wine to pair with their exquisite cuisine, just makes for a wonderful evening. A place that will forever remain on our go-to list!"

  • "As always, the meal at La Pergola was excellent. We especially enjoyed the special portobello mushroom appetizer - the mixture of flavors was very nice. The staff is always helpful but not too intrusive."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "We had reservations for a Sat at 7.30pm. Total lack of organization, we arrived on time, with another 6 parties right behind us and a full restaurant. Nobody asked for names or checked reservations. while we were seated fairly quickly, it took a while to get the menus, then time to order - we actually had to ask if we could order. The ice bucket we were offered twice for the wine, never came and the same for the food. We asked twice when the appetizers would come and in the end got up and left. So we spent a good hour in a noisy restaurant, no one waiter seemed to feel responsible for us. Overall a total disappointment. On a previous visit restaurant was empty, service + food excellent. So management of busy restaurant seems the issue."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "La Pergola is a good restaurant, but it had a very bad night. Apparently early diners stuck around causing a good 20 minute delay for a sizable group of diners with reservations. It followed that service was slow to the point where one couple left after their appetizers. Our appetizer was quite good as was one of our entrees (scallops). The other entree (fish stew) was devoid of its base (kale) and seemed a bit light in terms of its ingredients; however, what was there was tasty. It took four tries to get me the right bill- one had items not ordered and another was for a different table. The waiters acknowledged it was a disastrous night. To their credit they comped us the fish stew and gave us a free dessert that we gave to another couple."

  • "A week after slow service (but very good food) with a large group on a busy night, we had a terrific meal on a quiet Friday night. The short ribs and pork chops were both great."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "Even with a reservation we were kept waiting 20 min For a table. Requested bread 3 times before it finally came. Service was so bad we almost walked out. No apologies from the owner/manager on poor see Service, only excuses. Food was good, but not good enough to warrent The amount of time it took to be served...despite Everything "cooked to order." Will not be returning!"

  • "What an excellent experience. My wife and I had dinner before a show nearby. The service was excellent and the food was even better. The owners were present and they took the time to get to know us and welcomed our feedback. Overall a great experience and I would recommend to this restaurant to my friends and family. I can't wait to return."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "The main dishes (the quail and the black linguini) were quite good. The appetizers seemed overpriced relative to the main dishes (a small, very ordinary arugula salad for $14?). The noise level was too high, and the service was odd because the waiter disappeared after we ordered the main courses. But 4 stars for the food."
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "My husband and I ate there on New Year's Eve. They had a price fixed menu at 100 per person. Our first two courses were good, after that, truly not good at all. I would have mentioned it to our waiter, but we did not seem to have one. There were many food runners, and busboys, but nobody to check on us at all. Fifteen min after being through with our last course, and staring out into the dining room, we grabbed the hostess's attention and asked for our check. Very disappointing experience."

  • "La Pergola has the highest rating in our book for excellence in food and customer service. We highly enjoyed the delicious crispy duck, the rack of lamb, the sole, and the unique calamari. We have brought friends here multiple times to enjoy this fine dining in Millburn and look forward to many more visits!"

  • "Besides having tables spaced nicely so one can converse; besides starched white linens; besides charming, knowledgeable wait staff, besides BYOB - the food is delicious. Calves liver well prepared and you can't get it at most restaurants. Duckling was crispy on outside and tender within and had an orange sauce. Mussels were fresh and vegetable soup tasty. It's near the PaperMill Playhouse with convenient parking garage across the street."

  • "Party of 6-- everyone enjoyed their meal , but waiters were not attentive at all. Took a long time to get water refilled and the check-- and no one came to see if everything was ok. When we got the check and asked for it to be split between 2 credit cards, the waiter rolled his eyes. Really?"

  • "Always fresh,delightfully prepared to order. I know others reference the price but seriously, you get what you pay for in life. Yes, there are restaurants all over Millburn where you could eat for less but you will NOT enjoy the fine dining experience of La Pergola. The owners are very visible, warm, welcoming and make me feel as though they want to insure a positive experience for every diner."
