The 2 hour table limit is a turn off. So are the haughty hostesses.
The service a bit slow and not too helpful but the food is good. Many healthy choices
GREAT!!! Everything is always great!
Good evening out. Great food and good sheesha. I'd definitely recommend.
Bad service was rushed
Had an amazing Valentines Day dinner here! Food was delicious and the music was on point! Great spot for good drinks, hookah and food!
Hookah is good and so is the food
Visited there on Valentines day and upon arriving, they promptly took us to our reserved table. The host was very polite and told us upfront that since it's a busy day, they have a 2 hour limit for the table. I see how some people might get offended by that but she communicated it very politely and professionally and I had no issues with it. You have to understand that it is one the busiest business night for them and they want to accommodate as many couples as they can.
It was my first time there and I liked the interior and ambiance. We were at the lower level so I don't know how the upper deck is. We started off with drinks and Hookah. My wife loved the "Bright Lotus" cocktail and "Orange Mint" hookah. The food was prepared fresh so it took sometime to get served but we didn't mind the wait as the food was excellent. I highly recommend the "Tatziski" appetizer !
My wife and I both enjoyed our time there and we'll definitely visit again!
If you’re looking for a nice place w good food this place is for you. If you’re looking for a nice place w good food and good service this place isn’t for you.
It was my first experience and I would definitely go back to try other menu options. I’ll encourage my friends/associates to share the experience also.
I never go back to this place again
Pergola is such a cool place. Good place to catch up, food is good, hookah is on point
If you’re looking for Great Food and Hookah; this is the place to be. I’ve been several times and had my birthday dinner here and they never disappoint.
Food was nothing special, but it was a fun place and had great music
it's all about the hookah. food is overpriced & greasy. lamb was overdone. not worth the price.
I live pergola ! I’m always here every week ! love it and I’m so happy with everything about Pergola !!
Cute little spot. Ambiance is amazing. Food pretty good, but pricy for what it was.
Great food, best hookah spot in midtown. Solid lunch spot.
I booked it on open table for Xmas day lunch and it was closed when I reached there.
Was not open. Disappointed
Good food with a clubby atmosphere. Enjoyed every minute!
noisy beyond belief--- crowd rude and loud--- could not talk to waiter or to guest.
Never got to food because waiter could not hear us. Music was for those who are already brain dead. Pretenders there to think they were in the Middle East smoking drugs. Not for anyone who cares where they eat dinner.
The food was wonderful. Did not know until arriving that it is a Hooka bar but the smoke in the air is sweet. The food was outstanding take on eastern Mediterranean. Great Mezza and good entres too.
Took a long time for the servers to get to us. Slow service. Too loud and okay food
The food was amazing & so was the hookah. Our waitress noticed it was my birthday and brought a sparkly out with our dessert for me! Tip was already included in the bill which makes some waiters think they deserve it and don't care for it however the servers here really understand customer service. The manager came to check on us as well. I have been going to this place for years now and have introduced a lot of my friends, thankfully it's always been a good experience.
The grilled octopus and homemade hummus with pita chips are delicious!
When I booked this place I thought it would be a quick bite to eat before going to a game at MSG. When we get there we were happily surprised it was also a hookah bar and it was such a fun and unique experience. Food was delicious too.
i was pleased and had a great time with good food. the beer was flat, and Stella isnt flat.
service could be more present, aware of
the leather benches are in bad condition
upstairs, many wholes in the leather
like the place a lot anyway
Pergola was located near to our hotel so we booked a table for Sunday evening, expecting it might be quite quiet. Far from it - it was as busy as any evening with people enjoying a meal out with friends. We shared a number of smaller plates which provided plenty of tasty food (highly recommend the meatballs). The only surprise was the number of people smoking hookah pipes - we hadn't been expecting to be in a smokey environment but apart from the initial surprise it didn't cause much bother.
Good Food...you can't go wrong if like Mediterranean food.
Hostesses are RUDE!
Pergola, great place nothing bad to really say about it only reason why I didn’t give it 5 stars was because of the happy hour and price at the end of the bill but look below for more information
Reservations: We had a reservations on a Monday Night at 7:15pm, got there a little late but it seemed fine because there was not a lot of people would recommend to sit upstairs as the DJ was downstairs so upstairs was much better to hear me and my Fiancé to talk.
Atmosphere : Amazing, upscale and decor was nice
Hookah: I personally chose this place because we like to smoke, the regular flavors was $30 and the special flavors was $45
Happy Hour: Only at the bar until 8pm
Drinks: Drinks were good have a good selection of drinks except if your non alcohol they don’t have anything but Water and Virgin Mojito
Food: Amazing everything was really good from the appetizers to entree’s and the selection was good as well. There was a sides portion that we did not select as the entrees came with sides
Price: Everything adds up apparently, spent over $200 for two people which was fine but definitely one of the most places I have paid for in NYC as we are from NJ
Overall: It was a great place to go, if I worked or lived in NYC I would not mind going their more often especially for after work for their happy hour
Pergola is a happening spot whether you are going on a date, or having a girls night out, Birthday, Anniversary..........ect. The ambiance is awesome and music was great. I had the lamb burger which was off the chain. I would recommend this restaurant to all those who want to eat good food, drink and have a good time. I also like the different varieties of Hookah they have as well. I give this restaurant 5 stars.
Sound system way too loud for any real dinner conversation. (And, I'm in PRO audio). Too bad because meal was great, ambiance was good, and would like to go back ... but not for a disco-dinner.
The atmosphere was really nice. The service was ok. The food and drinks are a little overpriced.
1 drink, 2 sodas, appetizer and 2 entrees .... $95.
fun! Great food and hookah and amazing vibes! must try
I was disappointed to find the place full of hookah smoke so early in the evening. We went to have dinner, just the ladies, and one happened to be preggers, so we had to find another location.
This is a hooka pipe resturant. It's sad as the food is good but the smell from the pipes is over powering and all you taste is whatever is in the pipes. I didn't think it was legal to have these in enclosed spaces.
The menu online and on open table said there were happy hour specials until 8pm. My friend and I got there and were seated upstairs. We asked about the happy hour specials and were told that's only for downstairs tables which were all taken or by the bar if we wanted to stand. The service was awful, the tables are super small and feel more like a lounge than a restaurant and the hostess squeezed other tables next to us when the rest of the upstairs was empty. When we asked if she could seat them at one of the open tables on the other side of the room she gave us major attitude and said no. It's a shame because the food was pretty good but overpriced for what it was. I never write reviews but felt deceived by this place and wanted to share. I would not go back.
I reserved this booking on open table on my way to the location as the yelp reviews were good. However when i got to the location 15 minutes later, i was told, my open table booking made within 15 minutes will not be honored and that they will try to accommodate my request and gave me the worst seats right by the entrance, when i asked for another table, they said its reserved. I sat there for 2 hours and no one sat on the other tables.
The hostess clearly had a personal agenda.
