Great place! Excellent food and service. The dining is really noisy though...made it difficult to have a conversation. Despite this small detail, I'll be back.

Incredible evening! Food was on point and the wait staff were perfectly attentive and knowledgeable. Decided to have a night cap in the basement winebar and it was delightful. Such a cosy spot on a fall evening! Highly recommend.

The portions are really small, which does not coincide with the prices that are very expensive. Even though the food is not excellent, we could have had a good time in this nice-looking restaurant, but the service ruined any hope of a good evening. Our unpleasant and pressing waiter almost shouted at us when we told him it was not so great...
CONCLUSION : Don't go there. I don't recommand this restaurant. RUN AWAY!!!

Some of the best food in NYC, full stop. Authentic dishes and cuisine with a wonderful rotation each season and some amazing staples. It never disappoints and is always a great choice to make any night out really special. Also one of my favorite places to dine at the bar with a nice glass of wine for a more casual, "treat yourself" kind of night. I'd recommend certain items (suckling pig, anything from the wood-fired oven, pasta...) but it's too hard to pick a favorite -- you really can't go wrong! And if all else fails, take some friends and share!

We celebrated my 50th Birthday here at Peasant.

This is our second time here.

Great wine selection, prosciutto and fig app, suckling pig main (wife had gnocchi). Perfectly prepared and served meal.

Deafening noise level--my major complaint. I suppose dining very early or very late would overcome this situation--but who wants to do that?

Loved the wood burning ovens. Food was good and the waitress we had was great. Ally was her name I think. To bad that it’s closing. We definitely would have enjoyed bigger pieces of pork. It was delicious . Wishing the owner a good retirement in Italy .

I can’t believe this place is closing! It’s one of the greatest of the great. Food, service, vibe... you can tell they give a sh*t. It’s incredible. I’ll be going back as often as I can before the end.

Overall, the dining experience at Peasant was not enjoyable. It was a very hot night out, they had their AC on low - which was understandable. They could have at acknowledged it, the wait staff could have been slightly pleasant. Took the food long to come out, the restaurant was not busy. Just not an enjoyable evening out with my friends at what came as a highly recommended restaurant. Will not be going back or recommending to others to visit bc of the service and wait staff.

Food Devine, service superb, noise ( Friday night) and heat ( heat wave so not their fault but a few more fans would have helped) led to lower ambiance rating.

Peasant has always been a solid dining choice with amazing food, ambiance and great and friendly service! It’s highly underrated and often overlooked. I can equally say the same for their sister restaurant, Bacaro. Both are two of my favorite restaurants with over a decade of living in NY.
