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.

PROCEED WITH CAUTION ... NOT A SLEEK Mediterranean BISTRO ... should have passed as I was expecting an enjoyable Mediterranean lunch with Friends in the neighborhood .... My two friends did eat their lamb burgers and the fries were good .... but the Kebob chicken was not a kebob and was not tasty at all
I did not explore further basically left wrap intact (being we were half way through lunch I did not opt to exchange by the time the server came to our table) the least the restaurant could have done was remove or lessen cost from bill ....
also the restaurant is more of a bar and hookah lounge then an eatery hence “B” Rating from health department .. food at best bar not bistro a few people were enjoying the hookah ...

Food is really good. It’s a hookah bar too though which we weren’t expecting which makes the entire place smell like the flavors and there’s smoke. Wasn’t out thing but as a restaurant it’s really good so if that’s your thing would highly recommend.

We came 30 minutes early and they were able to seat us right away and accommodate us. We were celebrating a friend's birthday and we had a lot of fun.

Amazing experience, came in told them about our reservation. We were seated immediately to our table. Well lit no too dark and not too noisy we were able to enjoy our conversation. The hookah came within three minutes of us placing our order and it was perfect start to finish. Our drinks were strong and tasted great. I highly recommend this place if you’re deciding where to go for a date.

We booked the reservation for 4pm since they tend to not have any openings later in the evening. It was New Year’s Eve so we figured it would be good to go early. The service was not good as they were not staffed properly and they didn’t even get my husband’s side dish. We also didn’t see our waiter after he took our order. It was over an hour before we got asked how was everything with our food. The food is good but the lack of service made our experience poor.
Their hookah is good but very expensive! I don’t plan on going back. They need to improve their service.

Food was pretty good but the smoke from the hookah was unexpected and prevented me from really enjoying the evening.

Pergola is a very cool restaurant with a nice ambiance, starts as a quieter restaurant and around 9pm turns into a more club-vibe with louder good music. The food is outstanding!! The service is lackluster, every hostess seems to have an attitude and they sometimes stick you in tables very close to each other (even though most ppl have hookahs with burning coals!?!) so that's annoying but overall a nice experience, especially for a nice dinner earlier in the night.

Would never go back, the hostess was rude and not accommodating. As soon as I checked In before she said hi it was I need your table at 8. When I asked to changed tables she was very short and walked away.

The food was really good. I had the lamb burger and it was delicious. Two friends of mines had the chicken shawarma and two offered had the large meat plate. Everything was tasty. The avocado hummus was delicious but disappointing because we all thought it would be a mixture of avocado in the hummus. Instead it was regular hummus topped with a few chunks of avocado. The pumpkin salad is soooo good. This place is definitely worth trying!

For me personally, I didn’t like that there was no separation between people who wanted to smoke hookah and those who didn’t.

Met for a business mtg, and the sense of urgency by staff was horrible. Was a complete embarrassment and my client kept lookin at their watches. Waiter did not take a drink order before our order was given or even during the order process. Food took forever to get. Not a place to meet clients for a business lunch mtg.

Too Smokey and noisy. Food full of salt and not particularly good. Most people don’t notice because drinking and hookah destroys discriminating taste buds. Service was poor and got order wrong as well.
Would not go back.

I celebrated my birthday here it was the best time I’ve had in a while at a good hookah lounge. The host were very accommodating with making sure I was ok, as well as my server. The manager was absolutely helpful and great with allowing me to have a few more extra guest. I’ve came here on a few occasions from prior, more intimate setting but this was a great experience and I had a wonderful time. I can’t wait to come back to this place again! Thank You for making my birthday one for the books!!

I always love coming to pergola. It has beautiful decor, music is timely and the quality of the food, drinks and hookah is up to par. I will definitely return and recommend to friends.
