What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.7

A bit more touristy and a bit more parent-y than we remember, but Peasant still has a few home run dishes worth visiting for.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

Great setting, dim lighting, exposed brick kitchen in back, everything on the menu was delicious and our waitress made the night. Will definitely be back very soon!!

I think Peasant is quite underrated. It's a lovely restaurant with great atmosphere and delicious food. The wine pairings are always good and the menu diverse. I appreciate that there aren't simply one or two seafood options but are instead multiple choices for those of us pescatarians. The meat dishes look hearty and delicious too.

great restaurant however we were seated in the back where there was a cold draft coming from the ceiling that they could not explain which made it very uncomfortable while eating dinner, especially on such a cold night! so unfortunate since the service, food and ambience were great as was the cellar bar with great music after dinner

Extremely loud , and seating is so close it felt as if we were on a date with the people around us. Good was good, although stay away from the duck. Super salty - shared my lamb chops with my date instead. Waiter was great.

Had a drink in the downstairs bar, then dinner upstairs. Food was amazing! When I made the reservation, I put "birthday dinner " in the special requests. Upon confirming my reservation, they said your server would bring out dessert with a candle. Unfortunately, that was not communicated and we had to ask. Otherwise, our server was amazing and we had a terrific dinner!

Went for an anniversary dinner after I saw Peasant on a list of "romantic" restaurants. Perhaps should've called to reserve a better table, as we were seated against the wall -- one person on a bench seat next to other diners and the other person in a chair. Not a romantic set-up. Food was pretty good but not remarkable.

Second time here; another great meal. The lamb chops, with polenta, are the best ever--so flavorful!
We had the best waiter, Andrea, who couldn't have been more charming if he tried. Baby octopus was a great app. Only complaint is the two-tops are too close. Felt like a communal table. For $42 an entree, I'd appreciate more than 12 inches between me and the next table....

I always order fish and I’m always disappointed with a dried up fillet or the size of the portion. The fish options at peasant were on point. I ordered the whole sea bream which was not only XL, but also perfectly grilled and so insanely delicious. I’ll be coming back here just for that dish, although I eyed some amazing looking pastas and grilled seafood on other tables. Food is just amazing. The service was excellent as well. Impressive place.

Very good food, though a bit on the pricy side for some of the extras (salads, soups, etc.). Still, amazing quality food and great service with an old world feel. I will say it was quite loud to the point it was difficult to hear across the table.

It's lovely inside, the food was good, but not exceptional. When I saw rabbit lasagna on the menu, I was so happy, but it disappointed. It was swimming in a bechamel sauce and the pasta, which was tasty, was much too thick for my taste, more pasta than filling. My husband got the baby hen and he said it was fine but nothing special. Pricing was on par for the neighborhood. We also found the sound level made conversation almost impossible. We might consider returning some afternoon for pizza (they had a gorgeous wood fired oven) if the place looks less crowded. Service was very good.

Food delicious as always. Service lacked. Love coming to Peasant for the food the feel of the room and the service. I only got 2 out of 3 this go around. Started with our water which we with no ice because of teeth sensitivity,promptly brought ice water. Had to flag our server down to order. Table was extremely wobbly I had to stand for it to get fixed. Couldn't get his attention for the check, I had to stop him as he walked through the dining room looking at his phone. Was told our payment (Discover) wasnt accepted even though we used the same card to pay for drinks at the bar. He said "the bartender made a mistake." Not the service I'm used to there left bummed

Love Peasant, hate the seating. It's like dinning with all of New York, tables are way to close. You can't have a private conversation. Ruins the dinning experience.

Getting a little tired in the sense that the menu does not evolve. Wanted to order appetizers before we had decided on our mains, and that was not allowed by the chef. Still a go to place but would be good to shake some things up a bit.

Even if you're a pasta snob, Peasant won't disappoint. Pasta is all home made and tastes great. The food all around was excellent and service was very good as well. We did have to wait 15 to 20 minutes to be seated, even though we had a reservation. The staff apologized and bought us a drink, which was nice. Overall experience was very, very good. I am definitely going back and would recommend it to a friend.

We came to Peasant for our first Christmas dinner 2 years ago when we started dating. We came back tonight for our 2 year anniversary! The food was outstanding, atmosphere rustic and seasonal, and our waitress was top notch! To end our anniversary dinner we got a shot on the house at the bar. We can’t wait to bring our friends and family with us next time for a great meal and a great time!
