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.
Food lacked flavor. Dessert selection was not great. Service was good.
Peasant used to be my favorate but it let me down this past Saturday night
Although pretty good I didn't think the food was up to the usual standards
The Cauliflower was with Black Truffles. It was very creamy and good but I couldn't taste the truffles which it appears that I was charged an extra $30 for making the entire dish $48 :-(
The octopus was good enough The pasta with Veal Ragu seemed bland and very short on the veal. It actually resembled a cream pasta or even an alfredo. Ths suckling pig was good as always but it may have had too many potatoes on it Almost $200 for an OK meal. Frankie could and has done better Oh I almost forgot the bread pudding was awesome Too little to late sadly Peasant is in the penalty box for a while.
I’ve always enjoyed the food and service. Last night started out very beautifully. Our table ordered an excellent Brunello. We decided to order a second bottle to continue to drink after the entres. The moment the plates were whisked off the table, and we said no dessert, they brought the bill and multiple people kept poking around us picking up bits and specks from the table and generally “rushing” us off despite still having 4 glasses full of a somewhat costly wine. Sad to say it just was not so spectacular that I would put up with such rude behavior; but we all left with a bad taste in our mouths and I’ve broken my own rule of only posting 5 star reviews or none.
The food was great and not that expensive. Excellent service and good ambiance. Everything was better than expected.
Not overwhelmed by the food. The some of the food was under seasoned. I expected better based on all the reviews. I think they need some background music as the noise of everyone’s chatter sounds like you are in a noisy cafeteria.
Consistently Great food and service. Been here 10-15 times and have never been disappointed.
Really delicious food and friendly and prompt service. A bit noisy as it fills up.
Love this place...Always get a great meal and love the bar. Can get REALLY noisy though
There is a reason Peasant has stood the test of time. The food remains carefully prepared and deeply satisfying in a way that can only happen when a chef is actually in the kitchen and not out building a brand or chasing Michelin stars.
Very impressed with peasant !!! Would definitely go back, everyone was satisfied with Food, drinks and service was great.
Delicious food, great ambiance. The dining room & open kitchen were beautiful. Service was fine, not outstanding but also nothing to complain about. On the expensive side, but for such quality ingredients and a late Valentine's Day dinner, it was worth every penny! Great Soho location, too.
I love this restaurant. My biggest frustration is that unless I plan way ahead, it's difficult or impossible to get reservations for dinner.
The food is delicious and unusual. A great treat.
Good food, good ambience. Would come back for that risotto alone.
Good comfort Italian food. Ordered octopus appetizer which was very rubbery. My Risotto special with Lobster was very salty. I have dined there before and the food was better.
This is an extraordinarily authentic Italian restaurant so it felt a bit like a mini vacation! Food is quite brilliant- flavorful, hearty, yet refined, a sophisticated rendition of classic fare. It is a roaring celebratory space so one cannot have real conversation but most enjoyable
The food was amazing. Suggested wine was also wonderful. Will definitely go back!!
This is a true find in NYC where the chef owner works the line. It is rare to find quality like this at this price point. can't wait to go back and try some other stellar dishes. Squab is superb, tripe is authentic, cuttlefish was cooked perfectly, bread and complimentary fresh ricotta and olive oil hit the mark. Apple tart is lg. enough to share.
Love love loved it.
The atmosphere, the rustic feel,and delicious pizza and truffle gnocchi.
Would recommend it for a date night as well as a place for private small parties.
One of the best dining experiences in New York! The dining room is warm & cozy & the fires from the wood burning ovens add to the ambiance! The food authentic Italian & full of surprises! Outstanding ingredients beautifully prepared! Don’t miss this one!!
Best authentic Italian food in NYC
It was EPIC. We were downstairs and can’t wait to come back. Wait staff were amazing. Food was spectacular. Such a wonderful night.
Everything about this place is excellent!
food was really good and we tried most items on the menu and shared...suprisingly we booked late and it was packed.
Fantastic as always! Have yet to be disappointed since the day the doors first opened.
A local favorite and on our top5 list of best restaurants in NYC. Since 1999, Peasant has been one of the best gems of NYC! Amazing food, awesome service, friendly, fun, energetic, delicious and filling......... Fresh ingredients, fresh food, best desserts......... GO.
Peasant was incredible. My boyfriend and I agreed that it was some of the best Italian food we'd had in the city. The burrata was insanely fresh. We ordered the special appetizer which was a cauliflower au gratin with black truffle. It was unique and delicious. Both of our pastas were not only flavorful but it was clear that they were made in-house. The view of the wood-fire oven and kitchen made the restaurant feel extra cozy and intimate. 10/10 for us!
We found this restaurant on a whim and decided to make a reservation last minute.. There is no disappointment at Peasant. From the moment we walked through the door everything was delightful. We were early for dinner and greeted with pleasure... we had a couple drinks at the bar.. Bartender was one of the best in the restaurant business. All of the staff were attentive and hospitable. The meal was that of greatness, melt in your mouth type of dinner, so tasty and delicious. We will definitely be returning for another visit.
Things did not start off well as we were seated 20 minutes after our 9:00 reservation, but the food was excellent and the service very good. Everyone I was with loved their meal.
We had a group of six and I had made the reservations a couple weeks in advance. Our table was set up such that we were the first table in center of the three 'rows' of seating area. My husband sat across from me. Each time diners needed to go to their table, they needed to pass between him and a column just behind him to get to the rest of the dining room. He was bumped multiple times.
Myself, from my angle facing him, each time the bathroom doors opened I could see the commodes. In addition, being the first person at the first table, I found the breeze from the entranceway pretty distracting. I wore my coat for most of the meal.
The four others at our table were just fine. We did not complain or asked to be moved. It was Saturday and the restaurant was very busy.
It took a bit longer than usual to get our drink order taken, but our server suggested a fantastic wine. The dinner salad was fantastic and my gnocchi entree was out of this world. The lamb chops were just wonderful. The lobster risotto was a touch rich for the two diners in our party who ordered those, but it was stunning presentation and generous portions.
The restaurant is beautiful.
Service was lovely. Food was incredibly average esp for the price. Razor clam app was chewy and terrible, rabbit lasagna was way too rich and had very little pieces of rabbit, the skate was almost tasteless. Will never ever go again - too bad bc it’s a beautiful space
second time at Peasant. Food is always very good. Service this time was a little slow given the place was not busy when we arrived.
One bad thing was the wood stove was throwing off a lot of smoke to the point were we left quite quickly to get some fresh air. Last time it was not an issue so maybe a one-time thing.
Warm, friendly place.
This is a NY gem! It is perfect every time. The food is amazing and the portions are great. The. Staff is friendly. The menu is so creative. Every dish is authentic and unique. The specials are spectacular
Peasant is warm, inviting and cozy. The Lobster Rissoto was exquisite and stood out.
The dishes we had were excellently prepared, tasty, and pretty sophisticated for a place called "Peasant." The service was superb; they seem to have a large and well-managed service staff. The room is noisy and the two-tops are close together so be prepared for buzz.
Amazing experience. Very authentic and genuine feel for both the environment and the food. Great ingredients, passionate people. You can't go wrong here. Get the ricotta cheesecake!
excellent food, good service, good time. our favorite NYC restaurant
