Great food. Excellent service. Lunch or dinner. A little noisy but the place was packed as usual.
Well to tell the truth. It was valentines day. We were very disappointed. We never got our dinner. The appetizer didn't get to our table until after 45 minutes after ordering. It was most disappointing. We were very excited upon arriving at PeraBell. Nice place and we herd the food was rely good. Many times our waitress passed us buy and nothing. I think our waitress even said your appetizer will be right out. That was after 25 minutes. Well, it finally arrived some 45 minutes later from the manager with a great amount of apology. We cancelled the rest of our dinner. We were compensated with a number of apologies and were given our appetizer and two drinks at no charge. We were very grateful for this offering but we were not mad but very disappointed. Maybe another time perhaps.
We are big fans of PeraBell Food Bar in Riverhead. We wanted to order the NY Strip steaks, but they had just run out. That's how you know food is fresh at a restaurant and they place their meat orders on a regular basis! No freezer steaks at this place. We had the Flat Iron Steak and couldn't be happier. Everything was cooked to order perfectly and the staff, as always, was pleasant and timely.
the first course salads were not as described as on the menu-- bet & radicchio was more like 99% romaine with some beets, never found the radicchio. The Caesar was also disappointing- no flavor.
Pizza's were good, Service was great
Always accommodating on table request/preference while using this app.
Great selection of entrees! Waiter was outstanding. Bathrooms could use some attention.
This place is terrific! Love the atmosphere and the food was off the hook!
It was a disappointment, and I expressed that to the hostess, when we were seated at a small table instead of the booth I requested in my Opentable reservation. My assumption is the booths are saved for parties of 3 and larger, especially on a Saturday night, but just the same I felt my request was ignored. Had the hostess explained right away up front, I still would have been disappointed but at least I would have felt respected. We both ordered the Seafood Risotto. It would have been better if the rice was a more creamy texture. Next time, I'll order the 1/2 chicken - have had this in the past and recommend it. The hostess did not know what to say to me when I expressed disappointment over our table; waitress was friendly, smiling and welcoming; the young bus boy could be coached to smile and relax more around his customers. Other than that, it is a nice place to dine before a show at the Suffolk Theatre, however I will look for alternatives.
Great place and go there often. Food is always exceptional Pizza's are fantastic
Good for pre theatre
Casual dining. Always seems busy
I ordered the fried calamari. Before I placed my order I asked if it was fresh or frozen. I was told fresh and so I ordered it. However, it was not fresh. Also, I asked for chipotle mayo for a dipping sauce with the calamari. I was unable to eat all the the food so I asked if it could be wrapped ‘to go’ with the dipping sauce in the side. When my check arrived, I was charged and additional $3 for the sauces (they were each $1).
I hate being ‘nickeled and dimed’ For extra sauces!! I would rather the restaurant price the meal accordingly.
AND FOR THAT REASON, I will not recommend or return!
Our group of four had a fun time here. The pizzas are delicious and really creative with their ingredients. The crispy burata was delicious, as was the wings and calimari. Two of our main dishes - the tuna and burger came out at a different temperature than requested. They have a great beer selection- even for those that don’t typically drink beer.
Always a favorite, we like the menu and the staff is great to every time we go.
Perfect first visit!
Can't wait to go again!
Food, service, atmosphere, all were great!
Does not compare in the slightest to the awesome Patchogue location !! Dry short ribs ,dry wings ,chewy calamari but good waiter sean ! Might give it another shot but probably not !
Always a good meal. Our waitress was great. We enjoyed our meal.
Great spot if going to theater. Food was delish, drinks were too!!!! Definitely will return
Unique dishes, I had the best free bird chicken ever.
Prompt courteous waitress
Never disappointed and always delicious.
Staff was friendly & the atmosphere was nice. Desserts & appetizers were all good. We had the seafood risotto & the calzone for mains. The sea food “risotto” was overpriced & under seasoned. The risotto was not cooked as proper risotto. The calzone was delicious. I’d come again to try the pizza since the calzone was very good.
we are regulars at perabell whether it be lunch, dinner or happy hour pizzas/burgers at the bar! the majority of the staff here are really nice, friendly and attentive, and nino makes the best pizzas!! this day 3 friends got together for lunch. our waitress was excellent !! the thai chili shrimp are always sensational (one of my absolute favorites here) and they were once again! one of us had the quesadilla, which was always very good. another good time at perabell !!! a true neighborhood gem!! see you soon!
Wednesday is usually a quiet night to eat out, so there was no problem getting a table inside or outside. It was easy to talk and hear others, as not every table was occupied. Jessica took great care of us and made good recommendations when we had questions. The food was delicious and the portions were all ample. The cost was good and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a casual night out. We will definitely be going there again.
My daughter in law had the salmon which she didn't eat (bad taste) and the latkes which were dense hard potato balls - I had the monkfish which was very dried out and the pureed whatever vegetable concoction it rested on was so salty it was inedible. My sons chicken sandwich was OK and my husbands pizza was pretty good. Female wait staff was inattentive and not friendly... May be ok for drinks and bar food but forget anything else.
Everything we asked for, including extra salad dressing was an additional charge. Wait staff not allowed in the kitchen so have to wait for everything from bus boys.
Would not go back. Food was fair. One dish we ordered was very salty.
Very disappointing. Arrived for our reservation, were seated and sat for quite a while before a passing waitress offered to take a drink order as they were "changing shifts". When the waiter finally showed up he was disinterested to say the least. Can't imagine how he is at the end of his shift. The Patchogue location is much more inviting. Also, my husband ordered coffee that tasted like water. Won't be back, I work too hard for my money.
We ordered the Arancini for an appetizer which was ok - lacked a little flavor. My main was the arugula salad with the roasted chicken add in - again ok. The service was friendly but a bit too laid back for what I perfer. The place was rather slow; very quiet. When I got home I had a message stating that I had missed my reservation. It turns out, they forgot to acknowledge my attendance. It was later corrected.
Terrific and inventive menu. Very enjoyable music although a little too loud
Excellent fresh pizza made to order. Good service and plenty of seating indoors or out.
My husbands birthday celebration was held at Pera Bell in Riverhead on the back deck. We had a wonderful time with family!
The food was great! The time spent together was special . John and his staff have never disappointed us!
Bar type restaurant. Extensive menu. Very good food. Friendly wait staff. Large outside, covered deck. Sit in or out. I would come again.
The food was exceptional and very fresh. The service was standard. I would come back if I was in the neighborhood.
It was great! We had our 2 month old with us (which is always a crapshoot!) and he did great until we got our dinner! We ate a little bit and then wrapped the rest up and the waitress was understanding and got us out quickly! We’ll be back! :)
It was very nice. Food was delicious. We are inside because it was very hot out. They opened the front door and it started getting warm. Other than that it was very nice.
Only issue was it was hot out and a/c didn’t seem to cool restaurant very well in fact it was quite warm. Server said they adjusted a/c but then front doors were opened which let all heat and humidity in. Made it uncomfortable not to mention wasted a/c. Food was excellent service was good. Another issue was the music halfway through dinner the music got ridiculously loud even to have a conversation was tough. Not sure if it was live music on deck or radio but loud. Overall good value.
Service was deplorable as the joint was 1/2 empty and we had to seek our server 3 times. Not impressed with that but food was bangin.
I have never had bad meal st either locations. From the wine selection to fresh bread with pesto butter to the desserts and everything in between, it’s fantastic!
Great service portion size huge will share next time
we come here quite often for dinner before a show at Suffolk Theater...I love that you can make reservations, the service is always good and the food is excellent...fresh and nicely presentated..I had the fresh cod special Friday and it was outstanding
I am a vegan and so is my boyfriend, and they are very accommodating! The waitress was very helpful. They always have a homemade individual vegan pizza. Delish !
