    Excellent food with a terrific selection from the menu. Dinner specials were wonderful. Although we couldn't get a reservation for the time we wanted, (had to go early), I understand why. Everybody is making reservations to eat there. So, ensure some lead time to get the reservation you need. But, because we went so early, the service was superlative in that it wasn't busy yet. I think that the professionalism of the staff would mean that they do well even if they were packed. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for city dining on Long Island.

    We had many choices for Restaurant Week and decided on a local favorite for Saturday. Glad we did. Their offerings for this week were wonderful. Much to choose from, so you truly felt that you were getting the flavor of the restaurant. They also offered a reasonably priced choice of 2 wines, red or white, to add to the speciality of the week and the service was excellent.

    I have been to PeraBell a few times and the food is always good, however, during this visit, I was seated next to the station where the servers enter the orders into the computer and it was quite uncomfortable. Servers would hang around the station if they were waiting to help a table and there was a constant flow of servers inputting orders which was disruptive to my dining experience. Servers were standing right next to my table with little room for privacy. They should eliminate this table from the restaurant.

    There is no way better way to describe the food here than Outstanding. The place is set in the gorgeous town of patchogue, right on main street. They separate the bar dining from the actual dining and really give a overall comfortable feel. All the food we had was excellent, from our entrées right down to the warm bread with the pesto butter. This is a unforgettable place.

    Great place to get together with friends. Food was very good and the drinks were made correctly, with no short cuts - unusual these days. The service was excellent and menu choices were varied enough to satisfy anyone. I did think the noise level was a bit high, but we were still able to converse without straining to hear. My new happy place.

    The restaurant was empty and they would not let us sit down until all 6 people arrived. 2 people were running late so we had to stand at the front door since the bar was full. Poor attitude by the girl at the front door stating she doesn't make rules. Then when we do sit and order the food the food runner brings the food, spills the juice from one of the dishes, (a lot of juice), all over the table & on one of the guests, doesn't clean it up, and doesn't apologize, and just walks away. I let the waiter know, who does nothing. I do not recommend

    What happened to the Crab Cakes??? My wife and I took a widowed friend out for dinner to celebrate what would have been her 40th anniversary. She had heard so much about the Crab Cakes from my wife, and was so looking forward to getting them. Aside from that bump in the road, our food and service was quite good and well worth the visit.

    We chose PeraBell because the main competitors on Main Street were all barbecue joints. It was okay, but nothing to write home about. Service was good enough, but the food was just okay and certainly not worth the amount charged. My salmon dish was quite tasty, but our three other main dishes were meh. Not terrible, but edible.

    Did not know of this restaurant until our daughter recommended it. We were 5 for dinner. I suggest a reservation. What I liked about this restaurant is that they take different ingredients and combine them to make a great an interesting meal. You would think this is a pub type restaurant. They have great food also. However, this restaurant does take standard food and up the scale. If in the neighborhood--give it a try.

    My husband and I were looking for a new place to go. I found PeraBell on open table and though it looked good and when I read the reviews it seemed great! They seated us right on time which was nice, however it took about 15 mins for the waitress to come to the table to take our drink order even though there were multiple wait staff walking back and forth for those 15 mins. We placed our drink order, app order and meal order at the same time. Bad move because everything came out one on top of the other and we felt completely rushed. The food was very good. My husband had short ribs and I had seared tuna. I wouldn't say never to go here because the food was good. It's the service and timing that could use some help.

    We were a table of 7 so we were able to try a lot from the menu...everyone had nothing but good comments about their menu selection, the Gorgonzola flatiron was cooked perfectly and was melt in your mouth yummy! Our only complaint (if you can really call it that) was the service was not up to par. We were never asked if we wanted another round of drinks so by meals end we were all drinking water. But if you came for the great food you won't be disappointed!

    I come here often and for the most part get great service, but today I had a new waitress (can't remember her name) and after finishing our meals, we waited for almost 15 minutes before we could ask for the check. Food is definitely where it's at, haven't had a bad meal here yet. They also have a decent selection of craft beers.

    I have found in the last year or so PeraBell is my restaurant of choice whenever I go out to eat. I have brought family there who are visiting from out of state and friends who live on the Island but have never been. I have been there for both lunch and dinner and no matter what time, the food and service are always top notch. The prices are reasonable and more important, the portion sizes are sufficient. I appreciate the gluten free options since I suffer from a wheat allergy. The atmosphere is comfortable and casual. I highly recommend this restaurant

    PeraBell has long been a favorite of my wife and mine. Her mother and stepfather also really like coming to PeraBell so it an easy decision to take them there for their anniversary. As always, we were not disappointed. The food was delicious and well presented. Each of us ordered a different entree and none of us were disappointed in our selection. The server (Halie) was wonderful and offered some great suggestions ranging from beverages to entrees. She was quite attentive throughout our meal and was extremely professional. Looking at the diversity of diners in the restaurant, there's clearly something to be had for everyone. If I had one concern, it's the noise in the dining area - but this is a direct result of the popularity of Perabell.

    The Salmon dish was delicious, the filet mignon tasted like a mouth full of salt. It's hit or miss. The ambience was just ok. The location was perfect for the Patchogue Theatre, just a few steps away. I think if I stayed at the bar and had a few drinks and some appetizers I would have been much happier.

    I had early reservations because of a show next door. We were seated right away. The service was excellent and the food was way above average. The only thing I felt was when we got there the place was empty and we were seated right away. Within a half hour the place filled up. When our meal was served the place was full. I just got a feeling while we were eating they were trying to rush us to get done. The bus boy wanted to take my wife's plate and mine before we were done on two separate occasions. We purposely booked an early dinner so we can take our time and not rush out because of the show.
