Diner Reviews
  • "Our dinner was outstanding. The kitchen and chef, at least weekday, offered to size any plate either big or small or even create new dishes if they had the ingredients. We split the gnochi main meal, dinner sized salad and asparagus appetizer. My daughter ordered a dessert. All was fantastic. Service was out of this world, attentive without being intrusive."

  • "This was our second visit to La Pergola. Everything was delicious. It was a group & we ordered different things & everyone was very happy with their selections. A special of grilled sardines was a standout, as was the halibut & grouper. The pork chop was so good it was gnawed to the last bit! Pastas are freshly made with care. We were pretty full, so didn't order many desserts, but the lemon torte was great! We were celebrating our mother's 80th bday & the servers couldn't have been more gracious & friendly! It's BYO, which we particularly like. We loved it & shall be back!"

  • "LaPergola is a fantastic place. We went there with our family before going to the Paper Mill Playhouse which is within walking distance. The service was outstanding, everyone was friendly and attentive and the food was just as great. Definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great dinner."

  • "La Pergola has been open in Millburn for about 4-5 years. It was very good at first and has gotten progressively better. We had 2 vegetarians with us and they had no problem finding excellent options. The preparation of the food was outstanding, the plating beautiful, and the whole package memorable. We will return."

  • "Had been trying to get to LaPergola for a while and now wonder why. Tuna was over cooked and tasteless. The crispy duck had NO crisp and seemed to have stewed."

  • "La Pergola is a gem. The chef (part owner with her husband who is the host) makes her own pasta and every bite is delicious. The sweet potato ravioli is absolutely incredible. The noise is moderate so you can have a conversation with your dinner companions without the need to raise your voices. The owners are very engaging and truly committed to ensuring you have a good dining experience. The desserts are equally impressive -- especially the biscotti (freshly baked and a great way to end a meal). And it is byob so bring what you like to accompany what will be a pleasant experience."

  • "We received a gift certificate here when we bought our maplewood home and were very excited to try it! We took my mother in law for Mother's Day and while the food was delicious, the service was way off. The host looked at us like we were crazy when we said we had a reservation (which I made through open table). Once we sat they asked us to order about 3 seconds upon hitting the seat. We needed more time and boy did they give it to us. Took forever to order, get our food and get the check. Also impossible to get refills of my water. Tables around us were complaining about service too. For the price you pay, good food just isn't enough, good service is required too! I will say the pumpkin ravioli with fig was delicious!!!!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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!!"

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."

  • "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)."

  • "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."

  • "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."
