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.

They have hiked up their prices immensely. For 3 ppl, our dinner cost $400. I’ve been going there for 5 years now & never encountered this.

This was my best mediterranean experience I have had in the city to date. The food was outstanding and the ambience was amazing. I love the music and the vibe and I definitely recommend. I will be returning during the summer when everything is back up and running to experience it in the daytime

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).

Was great to have them reopen their doors again but our server was inattentive which led to our dining experience being mediocre. It was even more rude/annoying for the manager to come to our table and ask us to get up after seven minutes past the 2 hour dining time. The server could’ve reminded us, rather than have the manager do so, we spent about $300 between us (two ppl) to be rushed out right after we FINALLY received our check. Beautiful place but but this time I went I was displeased.
The lamb chops never let you down tho 🤍

I love pergola! It’s my fav restaurant they take your temperature, and table are some what apart, but no plastic separation. The table next to us as a big group of people; and others were coming in and out they need to do a better job asking people to stay on their seats; unless they need to use the bathroom. And control the amount of people standing around the table. There’s a 2 hours limit on the tables as well. Otherwise, the food and drinks were amazing & as far as the hookah: they give you a plastic hoses and bring it out in a plastic for your use only! I really liked that!

It was a nice atmosphere , but the mirrors for the bathroom only show up to your neck/ chest area . The food was pricey , 6 chicken wings for 13$ is a bit much . You can’t buy alcohol without ordering food . The hookah .... it says 30$ on the menu , but when the bill comes they charge 5$ for the plastic hose and 6$ for a piece of pineapple they use to hold up the charcoal ..... like just say it’s 41$ ... and also they don’t give courtesy water , you must buy a 6$ Voss bottle ... a rip off it you ask me , but if you wanna waste money why not . The dj was nice though.

There was a table with a guest that arrived before me & had two more guests join later on and stood there although I was made to leave within the 2hr time limit of my reservation. I was also made to order food with my alcoholic drink & hookah order although at a different table a man was not made to order food with his drink and hookah. Doesn’t look good at all more concerned about the money.

I've been to this location many times in the past with friends. I've always loved it here, but this last visit was a bit disappointing. The service was less than mediocre, and the food was not as I recall.

The ambince and the foods were great. But they are giving time slots to eat and it is just two hours at the end of the two hours they are basically kicking you out.

This restaurant was not advertised as a Hookah restaurant. My friend and I can’t stomach the smell and everyone around us was smoking while we were eating. The table next to us kept blowing their smoke in our direction and the tables are very close together (less than 1 foot).

Extremely loud the night we were there. I’d not expected the hookah scene but that’s on me as I could have researched it better. Not a fan of carcinogens so likely won’t be back.

I personally enjoyed the staff. They attended to us often and made sure we were taken care of. What I did NOT enjoy was basically everything else. We reserved a table for 2 not knowing we will be bunched up in between other guests. I couldn’t even fit between the table to sit due to the hookahs. When I was seated I was sitting next to two drunk women on each side that wouldn’t even move their purse in order for me to sit. It was too close. We could not have a decent conversation without the next guest hearing. I did not like the food. No options. Seats are way to close to each other. And I just didn’t feel comfortable.
