We had a great time at Casa de Pedro. My only complaint is that a restaurant that takes reservations ought to accept preferences like to sit out on their patio. When we arrived for our reservation and asked again to sit on the patio, we were told there was a 30-45 minute wait list for the patio, but we could be seated immediately indoors. It was even suggested that we sit at the bar and have a glass of wine. If one sits at the bar, hungry and thirsty, for 30-45 minutes, one is likely to be smashed by dinner, no?

Very nice. Churrasco and salmon plates were good, although churrasco was a bit overcooked. But a great place to eat and have fun, especially on weekends with a live band. Will do it again.

We live near Casa de Pedro and it is one of our go-to spots for impromptu date nights and for guests from out of town. This night in particular was our first date night with a 1 month old baby, and the staff were more than accommodating to not only setting up for the baby, but also for anxious mamas needing a quick check/payment!

This is one of my favorite restaurants and i hadn't been there in a while since we moved so my husband took me there for my birthday. It was on a Tuesday, so I guess I can't expect much for dining out on a Tuesday? The food was good, but the service was sub par, there was no mention of happy birthday (it was in the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday... why ask if you don't care to say happy birthday). I was never given a steak knife until 5 mins after my meal was served and i finally found our waitress... I just felt like our business wasn't appreciated there and that was that. I definitely want to still come back, but I will remember this negative experience and hope we don't get it again!.

We went for a pre-theater dinner with another couple. One of them has a hearing loss, but was easily able to hear and converse, which is not always possible in a restaurant. Food and service were great. Prompt friendly service, excellent food. Great drinks too. I have been here before, and I will go again.

This was my second dinner at Casa de Pedro. The food was delicious. The service was great. Our server was very attentive to my gluten free requests. Most of the menu can be prepared Gluten Free. I had the Shrimp with Coconut Sauce and it was terrific. My husband had the Lamb and said it was great! The Margaritas are also very good. It’s a really attractive restaurant, nice lighting, and I look forward to dining outside in the summer.

Great food- clean and fresh-tasting. Nice service and great margaritas. It was a little too loud for us- but then we’re oldish and we got there at the same time as the Arsenal office workers who wanted to party before going home. We gladly would eat here again anytime- but would probably plan to arrive a little later to avoid the After-work twenty-somethings.

Excellent restaurant. As soon as we walked in we loved the place. The atmosphere is fun, lively, and inviting without sacrificing more intimate tables for great conversation during your meal. Tucked away near Watertown mall, La Casa De Pedro is easily accessible but nicely removed from bustling downtown Boston. Highly Recommend!

There was live music which was fun!

I think we just ordered wrong- breaded cheese was very bland and fried pork tenderloin had a good flavor but was chewy and dry. The shrimp in garlic with fresh bread was the best thing we ordered.

Everything was nice except the music was too loud we couldn’t hear eachother speak. We asked that they turn down the speakers since it was live music, but they said they can’t!!
The ambiance would’ve been perfect if the music had been just a bit lower. Other wise very nice.

Really disappointed. I've going to this restaurant for over 10 years. The quality was awful. I felt like I was at a chain restaurant, which I guess they are now. So sad because I loved this place. Our server basically took our order, checked in once more, never brought us sauce for our dry yucca and then forgot about us. Go to Branchline instead.

This was our second year in a row celebrating my birthday here. Waiter was courteous, helpful, and served us with respect. Berry mojito special was fabulous. Food arrived without a long wait; entrees out sooner than expected. Red Snapper special was super; meat dishes were tender; the chocolate flan is to die for (and I’m not a big flan fan). Simply must not wait another year for a visit.
