We used to love peasant but this time the food was not good. The burrata had no taste. The pizza was thick crust and tasted like dominos or other delivery pizza (definitely not wood oven pizza) and the pasta was overcooked.

love the commitment to quality and simple but precise execution - flavors are balanced with personality - everything tastes special and the ambience transports you!

Another outstanding Dinner with the Girlfriend at Peasant. One of My Favorite Places in all of NYC. Kara (Chef Marc’s Sister) is FANTASTIC, and always makes me and my Guest feel So Welcome. Can’t say enough good things about Peasant.

Margarita pizza was my favorite in NYC! Bolognese was delicious, not heavy on the tomato sauce but a very savory and cozy dish. Service was very knowledgeable and friendly

Needs more heaters for outdoor seating. Serving portions too tiny. Service was slow. Took forever to get more bread. They didn't inform us that they would still toast the bread before bringing it to us. Slow in getting our orders even if there wasn't that many diners doing outdoor seating.

Sat outside in mid-November for my birthday. The food was amazing. We had pizza (most amazing crust), bucatini and steak. For dessert the wood-fired apple crisp and a special roasted grape ricotta cake. Such a great experience, even in the social distancing-mask wearing era. The service was exceptional and the outdoor atmosphere was comfortable and cozy. Will definitely visit again.

Very disappointed. After second bottle of wine waitress came back with much more expensive bottle Then after ringing us out already charged a covid relief charge to bill. She told us about it and said if you want it off we can re run cards. If we were told about it before hand we probably would have agreed to it. We didn’t ask fir credit. But this way if handling is very poor. Asking after the fact instead if informing us of options after.
