Class actThe best and most authentic Italian food in the area6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPeppercorns GrillWe celebrated our anniversary at Peppercorns Grill. From the moment we stepped into the restaurant we felt the staff wanted us to feel special. Anniversary wishes came from the hostess, from the waitress and from the bartender. We were given a complimentary glass of champagne with a blackberry floating in the glass. I was impressed with the timing of how the food was brought to the table and with the food. Definitely we will return. Peppercorns is my new favorite restaurant.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPrepare for a leisurely mealWe dined here on a weekday night, celebrating a friend's birthday. Salads were ample enough to share. While our server was pleasant and tried hard to please, service was somewhat erratic. For example, when our entrees were finally served, one member of our party sat plateless for 3-5 minutes, as the rest of us waited to eat, our dinners growing cold. Two of our party sent their veal chops back to be cooked a bit more -no big deal as they were promptly returned, perfectly cooked. The manager offered those diners complimentary glasses of wine. In honor of our birthday guest, a lovely platter with a sampling of excellent desserts, garnished with fruit , was compliments of the house.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA Liitle Bit of Italia in HartfordWe had a fabulous dinner at Peppercorn's recently. The food was incredible, and nicely presented. Shared an antipasto plate that was the best ever: sliced meats, cheeses, little tidbits of fresh stuffed peppers, figs with cheese, fresh ricotta with truffled honey. The lobster pasta was hands-down the best we've ever tasted, and chock full of sweet lobster meat. Wine list has some nice Italian options for lesser known wines at great value.
Go! You won't be disappointed, and you'll leave feeling like it's "your" place.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeFood was amazing. Long wait but this fettuccini made me feel like a different person for close to 48 hours in such an amazing way.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a pleasureThis bright and airy spot has many regulars. Maybe it's the friendly staff, the solid menu, the nice ambiance. No skimping on the portions either. Would have rated the food a little higher, but this time - and it was a slight mishap we're sure - the osso bucco wasa bit tough. Maybe came out of the oven a little too soon. Other than that, the quality of their food is always excellent.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Choice!Made last minute reservations for Mothers Day dinner with the family. The food and service is superb and prices are reasonable.
We would not hesitate to return. Five us had dinner and each one of us enjoyed the food and conversation immensly.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food at Unbeatable PricesMy family and I were pleasantly surprised with Peppercorn's Grill. We were celebrating my graduation from UConn. The food was excellent. We were shocked the prices were so low. Entrees ranged from $20-$30, with most plates coming with well more than enough food. Since it was also Mother's Day, the owners had set a special menu of their mother's own authentic Italian recipes to honor her recent passing. Fantastic family-owned restaurant. Decor was nice and simple. The location wasn't the best. Plenty of free street parking is available though. This restaurant definitely deserves to be located in downtown Hartford or West Hartford.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMConsiderateA call ahead of time was well-received and we were told of parking options. In addition, we were so pleased that our waitperson asked if we were going to the theater afterwards and was so concerned that we order and finish in a timely fashion. Salmon was cooked without lots of oil/butter and I was able to get double vegetable rather than a starch. Overall, a very nice introduction to a vert pleasant evening.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Italian cuisineGood service compliments outstanding Italian cuisine with the right amount of ambience to create a near perfect dining experience for special occasions or a romantic evening.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Food - Cool Ambience for LunchA friend and I went for an occasion lunch. We had a window seat and enjoyed the people watching. We were able to chat comfortably and enjoyed the art and colors of the decor. We found we might be able to buy the lovely bread dishes. I had thearuugula salad and fetuccini with porcini. My friend had a special I do not recall. The bread was crusty and tasty. My pasta was delicious. I regret we had no too, for dessert, because they looked delicious.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place, great food, greatGreat place, great food, great service. Love it here!

The standards are reliable, but the extensive daily list of specials is really the place to look.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent, ifThe food was excellent, if a little pricey for what it was (I thought an up charge for Buffalo mozzarella on a Caprese salad was kind of pretentious). The service was good in that our waiter was funny and nice, but there is a warning on the menu that the food at Peppercorn's takes longer than at most places, which doesn't bode we'll for a busy night. We ate pretty early, and the restaurant was practically empty, but we still waited about 1 hour for our entrees to arrive from when they were ordered. Though the wait staff was easygoing, I got the impression that the restaurant itself is a bit stuffy for the casual foodie. Food was excellent and my chocolate bread pudding was outstanding.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBy far one of the BEST restaurantsBy far one of the BEST restaurants in the State of CT... and I'm a food snob!!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find, everything wasGreat find, everything was good.
