    We went with high hopes for my wife's birthday. She got the crab cakes, which were quite good. I had the divers scallops and was underwhelmed. While they were very nicely prepared, there were only three, one VERY small, and the accompaniment was dull, not what one expects for $32.00. It was more like an appetizer than a main course. The coffee we ordered was delivered cold and it took forever and when I asked for a refill, I was charged for it (and it was sneaked in between the bill that was presented and the amount on the credit card statement)! I don't know if this latter bit was a waiter upping his take or not, but the service was also spotty: sometimes he was oversolicitous and other times he ignored us until we called for him.

    I very much enjoyed dinner at Peppercorn. The menu is a good variety of dishes, though it was missing the oysters which are on the menu on the restaurant's website. But I really enjoyed the tuna tartare and the lamb loin which was cooked nicely and I didn't have any problems with the portion sizes. The only thing that brought the dining experience down in my expectations was the attire of the waiting staff. The food quality and presentation and restaurant decor is certainly in tune with a higher level restaurant but the staff were dressed like they worked at a burger joint. This can be easily fixed, and yes I agree this is not such a big deal, but the menu prices really warrant a little bit more attention to that detail.

    Looking for a new place and stumbled on Peppercorn. What a great surprise. Beautiful charming interior. Two rooms with very different ambience. We chose lots of windows and a feeling of being outdoors. Food was delicious and different. Best caprese salad I ever ate. Will definitely make Peppercorn a regular night out.

    I've been to this lovely restaurant many, many times throughout all of its owners and changes. I've always liked it. Peppercorn has a very cool feel now - grays and blacks and ceramic backdrop over bar. It has a great cool vibe. Our hostess, Heather, greeted us warmly and took us to a wonderful table where our waitress couldn't have been nicer. The she-crab soup was delicious. It was a delightful business lunch and I shall return soon.

    Whoever constructed this menu did a beautiful job in providing options that are succulent but still lighter (shrimp with jalapeno grits appetizer was delicious, as was my spring salad), along with more decadent options (mushroom bruschetta, pizzas, etc.) I grabbed dinner with a girlfriend and was not interested in spending a fortune on dinner, I was able to have a beautiful experience here. while the bill realistic. I got the spicy pineapple margarita, which I appreciate was made with fresh lime and pineapple and no syrups. This is definitely a spot that you can go, enjoy a gorgeous meal and not spend a ton or consume 2000 calories.

    This was our first visit to Peppercorn. We enjoyed the predecessor, George's. The drinks were good but, took an inordinate amount of time to arrive. There were three of us. I had a Caesar salad which I give a 6 out of 10. The small pizza was almost inedible. Less than half of it was eaten and that was a struggle according to the diner. The other lady had the lamb which was very tough. I had the deluxe burger which was quite good but, not worth the price of $17.95. The shoe string fries were poor. Plates were removed from the table while others were still dining. The open bottle of wine was left at the elbow of one of the diners where it came very close to being knocked over. It was an expensive but, not good. We will not be back.

    I haven't been there in some time and we were all pleasantly surprised. The menu is great now with so many choices. The beet and kale salad was fantastic and the cheeseburger a killer! The French fries were really good but could have been cooked a little longer. Someone in our party had the cheese steak egg rolls and loved them! Also the fillet was perfectly done with great flavor. The Bronzino was also very good with nice flavors making it interesting not plain. We were too full for dessert- the new staff are terrific. Very relaxed yet professional - we will definitely be back

    Food was fine. Side salad drowned in dressing- shame because it was good tasting but pooling in the plate. Eggs were great. We were one of two tables there for brunch at 11am. Waiter did not know his menu- my dad asked to sub canadian bacon for regular and waiter told him they don't have it. I showed the waiter it was actually on the menu multiple times in their eggs benedict options. Nice guy but clueless. Busmen were lovely and attentive. I would try dinner with a more experienced waiter. As we left glasses fell and shattered at the large party/table next to us...this place seems upscale but didn't feel it that morning.

    Our third visit was disappointing. We ordered 3 starters which were good. However the lamb shank which was described beautifully in the menu was simply without taste. The lamb was tender, but the sauce had no trace of the promised mint and simply drowned the potatoes and carrots resulting in one bland dish. The other platter was the duck which was somewhat overcooked, but the cherry-cabbage accompaniment was tasty. The key lime pie reminded me of a prepackaged frozen pie with rubbery crust and pudding like filling, hardly worth $10.Moreover the place had a dingy look about it , not present on our previous visits, Perhaps for over $200 we are not entitled to a white cloth on the table.

    The food was good but uninspired. Our service was good -- but not especially remarkable. The menu did offer a nice variety but it wasn't a particular value for what we had. Given it's reputation, we expected a bit more. Not disappointing, just not a Wow. A good spot for a business lunch but not a special occasion.

    We made a reservation hoping this place was going to be good. Inside the place is very nice. The server also was very nice. The food, not worth going back to. Salad was over peppered. Lamb was bland. Filet was the worst cut if beef. Tuff and chewy. Could not eat. Did not eat dessert. There were not a lot of customers. Too bad.

    Beautiful restaurant. French Toast was delicious but you can't go wrong with that. Lamb was terrible. Hubby loved the Shrimp & Grits. And the Creme Brulee trio was outstanding although I would have preferred to order just chocolate in a larger size. Outdoor dining seems to be reserved for private parties.

    While the service at this restaurant was excellent, the same cannot be said of the cuisine. Everything eaten seemed to not be fresh, from the horrible biscuits, to the salmon over the bed of kale. Hopefully this restaurant considers revamping the menu and having a focus on freshness as it is currently missing its potential.

    ...to put all that money into renovating the former George's and then serve mediocre food! Add to that poor service, where the table was attended to by 3-4 servers that did not seem to know what the former server had provided, and you come to the conclusion that there is no reason to go to Peppercorn again, especially when you live in Wayne and have so many other great options.

    Very disappointing. Salmon raw, when returned to kitchen was simply reheated rather than new piece. Sides were returned cold. No fork was given when meal returned. Hushpuppies were cold and overdone. Tasted like they were cooked earlier in the day. Out of the wine we ordered and comparable was $5/glass more. However, the salmon dinner was not charged.

    This is my 4th time to Peppercorn and the previous have been good experiences. This time I ordered diver scallops and for $32.00 I got 3 scallops, each on a patty of grits and a few peas surrounding them. This was way overpriced. It looked like an appetizer plate. Next time I will order a burger or pizza!

    This restaurant just keeps getting better and better. We ordered a variety of starters and the margherita pizza to share. Everything was delicious. The lamb sliders and cheesesteak eggrolls were standouts! The service was also very good. We sat in the tavern and the crowd was lively and we ended up running in to a few different friends. It was a fun night and we are all looking forward to going back to Peppercorn next week- love it!
