The Peasant & The Pear
One of my favorite lunch spotsOne of my favorite lunch spots in the east bay. Food is always fresh and tasty, and the cafe atmosphere is very comfortable. One a nice day, the outdoor patio offers the opportunity to enjoy the weather with a delicious meal.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFriday lunchMy friends and I had lunch here while going on the local garden tour. We were seated right away and decided on the patio since it was more quiet. We were served water right away and were told the special of the day. The service was good and the food delicious with both of us enjoying salads. We have eaten here before and always enjoy coming back. When we left we were thanked for coming.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerThis is one of our favorite restaurants and have been here many times, and every time had a great experience. This time, we came here for dinner for our anniversary on a Tuesday night. The place was moderately busy and pretty full by the time we left. The servers were prompt, fun and friendly. The wine list, while not huge, is very smart with good selections in all price ranges. The food was excellent. We started with the battered and fried asparagus, which was cooked perfectly. My wife had the salmon and loved it. It had a seared crust and was cooked exactly the way she requested. I had the spring chicken, which was also cooked to perfection.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was satisfactory. ServiceFood was satisfactory. Service was excellent. Tables are too close together and noise level is high.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect NightWe went to this restaurant to celebrate a birthday.

Great drinks too!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband said he would haveMy husband said he would have preferred that the chicken on his cobb salad be sliced rather than whole. It makes it so much more work when not already sliced. Other than that, all was lovely, as usual. Erin was a wonderful server.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, another deliciousAs usual, another delicious dinner. There are lots of great dinner places in Danville, this one ranks in our top 5.

Everyone was extremely friendly and attentive. The food was very good. I recommend starting your meal with the spring salad with all of its wonderful flavors and ending the meal with one of their delicious desserts. The pear tart with vanilla bean ice cream was great.For the main course, I had the baby back ribs. The meat fell off the bone it was so tender. The macaroni and cheese was good. I was hoping the jalapeno coleslaw was going to have more of a bite than it did, but it was still good. The others in my party had the salmon. They all cleaned their plates. For those on a small budget, I would recommend it for special occasions.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful, overall experience.Wonderful, overall experience.

Fabulous food and the bar, although small, is very friendly for both drinks and dinner for two.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to returnI loved this restaurant. From the asparagus appetizer, to the corn soup, to my pasta entree with chicken and fresh peas, it was all great. I can't wait to return during the warm summer months and sit outside. Make reservations as it was 100% booked.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was amazing and so wasFood was amazing and so was the service.
Will be returning soon and will be talking to friends about it.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSkip the holidaysWent for prix-fixe Easter brunch...did not execute the menu very well considering there was a limited selection. The food seems to have sat waiting so that it was delivered on time, but eggs don't sit under heat lamps well. French toast was not very "Foster"y and sourdough crust was very tough, wished I had a steak knife. Regular menu on non-holiday is much better.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrived before 1:00 butWe arrived before 1:00 but were promptly seated at 1:00. The restaurant was filled with families because of Easter. We were seated next to two charming families and enjoyed conversation with them. The brunch menu was fixed but with choices. My husband enjoyed the prawn salad followed by prime rib hash. It was delicious and the hash serving was very generous. I had the green salad with warm brie and then the salmon. Very tasty and well prepared. Presentation was beautiful. We finished with desserts, Pear tart and chocolate salted carmel truffle cake. Wow, both very delicious. I have been to this restaurant before for lunch and dinner. I have never been disappointed. Try it!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe eat here frequently andWe eat here frequently and laways enjoy ourselves.

I'd like to try dinner next time.1/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic FindFrom start to finish The Peasant & The Pear delivered on a spectacular evening out. We had a wonderful table and service was 5 stars all the way. This was our first visit and they hit full stride on all dishes at our table. My wife had the Fisherman's stew full of perfectly cooked shell fish in a chile broth, mother-in-law the lamb shank, a Flinstone size shank with flavor galore and I had the cassoulet, a dish of duck confit, sausage and pork belly with white beans + a caesar salad. There was not even a morsal of food on anyones plate. The Peasant & The Pear will most likely become our go to place. Hats off to the very talented chef and owner Rodney Worth. He is worthy of the title "Iron Chef".1/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Sunday BrunchWe enjoyed a delicious Sunday brunch with outstanding service and a delightful atmosphere. The Peasant & The Pear is highly recommended.12/9/2012 12:00:00 AM
