A word from Pera Soho
Pera Soho expands upon the exploration of Eastern Mediterranean cuisine first embarked upon by midtown’s Pera Mediterranean Brasserie when it opened in late 2006 on Madison Avenue to become a “Top 5 Newcomer” in the 2008 Zagat Survey. A downtown-ized version of the original restaurant with an
edgier approach to food and ambiance and with the pursuit of pleasing all five senses, Pera Soho embraces the Pera hallmark of presenting a culinary experience firmly rooted in centuries-old Eastern Mediterranean traditions, while incorporating contemporary Western trends, seasoned with New York City gustatory flair, without any compromise of the essential integrity of the food.
Pera Soho offers some of the signature dishes that made the first Pera so popular, while also taking diners’ palates on a more adventurous journey through the Eastern Mediterranean in a tri-fold setting: indoors, private garden, and rooftop patio for private events.

Amazing outdoor space with
excellent food. Slip away from the fast paced world and journey to the calm, relaxed environment on the Mediterranean in this restaurant. Food is fresh and light and fillies with flavor."

This is the second time I went to
Pera for brunch. First time was good. This time I was with my friend and her 2 year old daughter...and brunch was awful! We got a good table and the waiter took our order within 10min. We ordered OJ, it was hot outside. We asked the waiter many times for the juice.. Took them 45min to open the Tropicana bottle to put juice in 2 glasses. Then the food came and it didn't look good. The fries were over-cooked, the salad was taste-less and the presentation was awful. Should have taken pictures.. Paid $60 for 2 brunch and bad service. I will never go back."

While the food is most of the time

We went for brunch on a very cold
winter day, the place was pretty empty, however the staff was super friendly and our waiter was really attentive, so we still had a great time. The food was hit or miss - I loved my salad but my friends were less than impressed with their entrees. It seems to have a gorgeous outside space, so I would definitely come back on a nice summer day to sit outside with cocktails and snacks - the service is that good that it deserves another chance!"

Right near the Holland Tunnel
which is great for those who come from NJ. Walking up to the restaurant, the entrance wasn't obvious. The food is good, I enjoyed the butternut squash soup and the Adana lamb. The service was excellent. I would hope so because on a Friday night there weren't many patrons. The servers and host were very attentive. At the end of getting the bill, the server gave a card for the guests to review the experience at Pera which was nice but some might not want to take the time to fill it out, but I didn't mind. Overall. visit and enjoy Pera Soho."

The food was fair, at best. Our
waitress kept insisting we have iced tea refills, only for us to find our later that each refill was charged another 5$ Horrible customer service. I wouldn't go back"

I came in from Philadelphia for
the day and had lunch at this restaurant the service was impeccable, the food was marvelous and the atmosphere very cozy and zen. I have put this restaurant on my best of New York list. I will be back for lunch, brunch and dinner."

Pera Soho has a lovely chic look
and vibe. The menu is quite nice and easy for vegetarians as well as fish and meat eaters. We enjoyed our meal very much."

My fiance and I were looking
forward to dining here for the first time and for the most part we had a great time until the end. We had just finished paying our bill and in the midst of finishing our champagne, when either a restaurant manager or maitre d told us to get up due to them needing the table. This was extremely rude. There were other open tables behind us and after spending a lot of money this is how we were treated. After we confronted this person, all that was said to us is that we can finish our drink at the bar. Very poor customer service."

Sat promptly and OT request for
table out of the way accommodated as best they could Live Jazz, singer was meh, musicians were great but they took a lot of breaks and left early... Beautifully decorated, romantic lighting and gorgeous hanging lights over bar Food came like clockwork although it felt the server was waiting for us to finish our bottle of wine before he took our order... Delicious strwbry champagne and perfectly portioned menu, risotto a little undercooked but the lobster saved it Two sets of awful guests on one side- as an ex-restaurant worker they were horrible (and cheap) and on Valentines! Poor server! I walked out with a rose, balloons, my date and a smile on my face. Overall an excellent Valentines, thank you Pera!"

The wine and apps were good, but
when main meals came out, they didn't cook meat to correct temperatures for our party, and dishes were very mediocre, including the sirloin and hanger steaks. Been to the midtown location which was better, but I would not return to the sister restaurant in Soho again."

We went there with our kids for
brunch one Sunday. The place looked lovely, but it ended there. The staff was not accommodating at all in keeping us from the sun. Mild exceptions to the menu were not accommodated. It was a really inflexible dining experience and we would not go back."

I've had drinks in the summer at
Pera Soho and thought it was time to take it inside. I love the ambiance of the place. It's such a warm and inviting space, really pleasant on the eyes. My friend and I were the only table as we got there late and the weather was in the single digits. Our server Crystal was very attentive and professional and didn't show the least bit of annoyance at our need to linger over coffee and dessert while her shift was clearly over. I think Pera Soho is a lil neighborhood gem and I hope the summer outdoor crowd comes "in" for the winter. I will definitely be visiting again, if only for the baklava made with pistachios instead of walnuts! Deeeeelish..."

While traveling in the US you
embrace local traditions, so we went for Thanksgiving dinner "en famille"! And chose Pera Soho for it's review in Time Out NY and for it's location which was very convenient for us. The Thanksgiving menu was adequate to the season with 2 choices per course and a vegetarian option and was overall good: the turkey moist and juicy and the risotto very tasty. The starter salad was extremely acid, though: too much vinegar. The desserts were all good and not too sweet. Overall a good experience except for the bill that almost doubled the price of each menu with taxes, service and extras and we drank less than 1 glass of sparkling wine per person. But it is probably an american thing that we were not familiar with."

The food here was delicious and
great ambience. The service was great however we felt a bit rushed with the meal as there was no time in between courses."

I was so excited to try this place
out for my birthday this year. Unfortunately, while my husband and I had a nice evening out, the food was really disappointing. This is my favorite type of cuisine, so I must admit hat I have high expectations. That being said, if you're going to charge what Pera charges, you better serve high quality food. We ordered the chicken rolls for an appetizer, which I found to be dry and overcooked. My husband ordered the lamb rack for his main. The lamb was cooked nicely, but the chickpea mash was extremely bland and the eggplant fondue was too sweet. My least favorite dish was the dumplings. All I could taste was the dumpling dough (which was much too thick) and the overpowering yogurt sauce."

Attentive service, food was quite
good. We both had the bass and it was great."

Food was good the service was very
very slow. The Host came over to us and asked if we had ordered. When we said, "yes- 15 minutes ago" he ran over To our waiter who seemed unaware of the delay. The brunch entrees finally arrived 5 minutes later. The host ultimately only charged us for 1 meal. Thank goodness it was such a beautiful fall day so The wait wasn't so bad. Would not go back."

Great brunch and love the outdoor

Went for Sunday brunch. Outdoors
was awesome and food was great. The service was horrible! They need to do something about the service or it is just not worth going."

Beautiful outside area but
unfortunately this is the only good thing about this place. Service is mediocre at best and the quality of food does not match the prices they charge here. What a pity...."

We were 7 for lunch, I chose the
restaurant. I was very happy that everyone loved it. The hummus appy was excellent. Everyone really enjoyed their lunch, which ranged from hamburgers (simply delicious) shrimp & rice, a beef dish and 2 others I am not sure of the names. In addition, the bloody marys were the best! Thanks Maryann Service could not have been better, Eddie appeared magically when anything was needed. Will definitely return here."

My husband and I had brunch on
Sunday. The restaurant has a big beautiful patio, but we had to eat inside due to the 100 degree heat. The restaurant is very comfortable and nicely decorated. The food and service were excellent. We look forward to returning for dinner."
