Double-date night. We wanted to move our table when we got there to a more secluded area and they accommodated us with no issue. They tell you in the beginning that reservations are strictly a two hour window. They took our drink and hookah orders asap and they came exceptionally fast. The hookah guy uses brand new hoses right out of the plastic which is oddly satisfying given the conditions. Smoothest hookah ever, the best i’ve had. The guys got wings and almost got a second order because they were so good. Girls got crab cakes, really good. Lamb chops, chicken chops and salmon with sweet potato mash, all amazing entrees. No complaints. Service was very attentive. They even changed our coal throughout the sitting so there was no need to get an entire hookah refill. The only thing is, you really do have to leave when your 2 hours is up and we were having a great time. We could’ve spent so much more money there for the night but unfortunately we weren’t even allowed to take our talents to the bar. But overall, I’d come back every weekend if I could.

My experience this time was a bit off.
I ordered watermelon and mint only and we were charge pineapple head hookah which we didn’t order.
Other places don’t charge for hose but they do.
I didn’t ask for margarita but there might be some misunderstanding.
Linguine sea food pasta was extremely salty couldn’t finish it.

Other foods was great!!! Our server Laura was attentive.

Drinks , food and hookah was amazing. The sit time max is 2 hours. I asked the hostess if i can sit at the bar after she insisted i can. As soon as i got to the bar , placed my drink down the the bartender went off... ohhh you guys can't sit here blah blah...this is not okay blah... not sure what she was fussing about because she has her mask on barely hearing what she was so upset about... She stormed from behind the bar and went to the manger insisting me and my date leave the bar. She confronted me letting me know we can't sit here after dinning. I told her that's all she had to say she didn't have to be nasty... " she replied "oh I'm sorry it must be my Russian accent" 🙄... other then that encounter everything was okay.

The place is outstanding, the food is great and the drinks are very good. I think the only issue we had was the fact that we felt rushed. They are serious about your time limit here with no flexibility.

Such a great night! We stayed until closing. Their food and drinks were AMAZING!! Had lamb & lemon chicken, spinach, gigante beans and potatoes. Ada was a great waitress and our hookah guy was so sweet and checked on us all night. The hookah is one of the BEST I’ve ever tried outside my house, literally lasts more than an hour before tasting burnt (they use pineapple heads). However, i think they should offer ice with the water they serve and they charge you for the hookah pineapple head without letting you know or giving you the option to get a regular hookah. They also charge for the hose (which isn’t an issue for me, i like knowing i have a brand new hose lol). Also the ambiance is like low lighting, nice tables and chairs or couches to sit with nice music all night.

Salads and appetizers were good but my short rib entree had too much a sugary sauce rendering it almost inedible. The flavor felt very artificial. However the presentations were good. I'm a big time foodie so this may apply differently to you. The service was great though.

Everyone at Pergola is extremely kind and accommodating. The music and vibe is dope. Great place to people watch. Hookah is on point. Food is mediocre but the crab cakes hit the spot. Shout out to Al, Zizo and all the Mo(s).
