Had the Prix Fixe menu on NYE, which was a pretty good value at $60 per person. Most of us got the Filet Mignon medium rare, and though mine was cooked perfectly, my friend’s was more on the medium side. The service was painfully slow at times when there were plenty of servers on staff that evening. It took more than 10 minutes for our server to even greet us or take our drink orders after we were seated, and as a manager in the restaurant industry I was trying not to let it ruin our experience, but this was unacceptable. The ambiance was romantic, the food was generously portioned and tasty, and they had some nice gems on the wine list. Aside from the service, a nice experience.

Very cool inside... needed to wear our coats throughout dinner. Wait staff attentive but a little disconnected.
Had the tasting menu expected better because of that but seemed as though it was made in bulk keeping warm for service.

Had the bruschetta for appetizer and the pork Loin dinner for me and Pancetta/risotto dish...wow! We enjoyed it with a nice Italian Pinot Noir. Our table was in the corner, nice and cozy. Overall, it was a great night out with the spouse.

A reliably good, comfortable restaurant, quite popular as well. The menu has gotten smaller and less ambitious over the years, so there are not too many surprises, and somewhat limited choice. Half the menu consists of pastas and then one variety of each kind of entré--one each of chicken, fish, pork, red meat, vegetarian. Service is excellent and the ambiance is warm and friendly--great for families and dates.

Our server seemed overly busy and unable to check on our needs with any kind of regularity. Our food was not quite hot and reasonably tasty, but nothing special. The brie appetizer was quite good and along with the wine, probably the highlight of the meal.

We made reservations to eat here prior to an event at SAP center. It is an easy walk from the arena. We figured a 6:15 pm reservation should give us plenty of time to make the 8 pm event. However, the kitchen was really slow and our food did not even arrive until 7:15. Yikes! My daughter had to wrap half of her food to go (which we ended up throwing away as they would not let us take it into the arena). A real shame. The server was very apologetic and refilled our wine glasses for us, but my daughter was still hungry. Nice place though. Would be happy to return when we are not in a rush.

The food was mostley delicious and the service was great. My only complaint is our desert was not good, it was one if the worst creme brulee my wife have ever had. However we would try it again because the rest of our experience was so good.

Myself and three former colleagues meet for dinner at least once a year. Most of the time, we decide to meet at 71 because it's one of a few places you can have a good conversation without too much noise.

Absolutely horrendous experience. Waited 35min just to get a beer. Waitress was completely waisted (weed?). We were there a total of one hour and still had not been asked to order our food so we requested the check and left. Asked for the manager and he was too busy making drinks to help us, he never came to see us. Terrible. Don’t go!

The restaurant seemed to be understaffed. Although our server was apologetic, I was dissapointed that the service was slow and unattentive. It took about 40 minutes to get our drinks. They came out at the same time our food did. We ordered the bruschetta as a starter and when our food came before it did, we asked and where told it was sent to another table by mistake. Overall, the food was decent, but not worth the wait. With the amount of options in the area, I would recommend exploring those options.

Had not dined here in years and not much had changed. Relaxed and cozy on a Friday night just steps away from San Pedro Square madness. Great appetizers, the four of us had the brie and the beef carpaccio. Good entrees and found a really great Pinot. Was my wife’s birthday and service was good, everyone had enjoyable experience.

What a delightful dining experience my wife and I had for our anniversary dinner celebration! I highly recommend 71 Saint Peter to all those with discerning tastes and an eye on their budget as our meals were extremely satisfying, the service was exceptional and the atmosphere warm and welcoming. Our server Michelle provided so much attention to us that it felt like she was our personal server. She offered great wine and meal recommendations and greeted us with a Happy Anniversary message and some champagne to toast each other for our 35th wedding anniversary. Bravo! The tri-tip special was phenomenal, both in its presentation and preparation. The chocolate sour cream fudge cake dessert was yummy as anticipated. I highly recommend this restaurant that strives for excellence and succeeds.

It seemed that everyone’s food was pretty bland. I had the Niçoise salad with salmon and it had little to no seasoning and just a very oily dressing. Pasta was nothing to write home about either. Love the space and the location, I hope they can improve the food taste.

The windows were very dirty. I ordered the rosemary chicken, and our server said the menu has been updated so the chicken will be a breaded cutlet instead, “like a schnitzel,” so I said ok. When he brought my meal, it was a pale boneless chicken breast that had been sautéed with zucchini and onions and peppers. Nothing like he described and a meal a beginner cook could make. The sour cream chocolate cake was dry. We had to ask for bread and it was also dry, and no butter was offered. All in all, a huge disappointment and we won’t go back.

Arrived hopeful after all the good reviews but our experience was less than optimal. We were put in the back room and somewhat there abandoned there by waitress. Most troubling was that after telling us she would give us time to decide on food, we went through the menu and decided on a chicken dish. When she came back, only then did she inform us that the dish had been completely altered and that it had gluten. Decided on the pork dish and was told this also had gluten, because it was stuffed with breading- which is not mentioned on the menu!

It just seems prudent to me to let guests know that a dish has changed upfront rather than let them mentally chose something that is not available.

It may have been an off night. Food was ok, service was lackluster.

Service was very disappointing. Took forever to get drinks. When 4 of us all ordered the same glass of wine the server did not suggest a bottle which is kind of serving 101. We had to suggest it ourselves. Had to ask for water. Restaurant was very warm too and tables were wobbly. Food was good but not amazing. The baked Brie was really good. I wouldn’t go back.

First the restaurant messed up our reservation and didn't have the table I'd booked for 6pm. After a 15 minute wait, they squeezed us in, 3 people on a 2 top.

Then our waitress took the order from the table next to us that had been seated after us. I heard her ask them if they were concert goers so she could make sure everything went quickly enough to make it to the concert in time.

When she took our order, I told her we were also going to the concert.

An hour later, about 7:15pm, after asking a few times where our food was, it arrived. (We'd even been asked by another waiter what we wanted to order, when we'd already ordered!). Our waitress admitted she had made a mistake which had delayed our food.

We had to rush through our dinner as the concert started at 8pm. I thought a table booked for 6pm would be plenty of time.

The food was ok, not great.
The service was terrible. They did knock off 20% when I asked for consideration for their mistakes, but It still wasn't worth it. I will not return.

We had reservations at 6pm and arrived on time. They wanted to seat us on bar table in the hallway. We complained about the bar table and location. They said the manager will come and talk to us. He never showed up. They had a couple of tables available in the main dining room. After reaching out to the hostess several times and waiting for almost 30 minutes, we were finally seated in the dining room. Another couple sat next to us and were complaining that they had to wait 30 minutes although they had reservations.

They were not well prepared to serve on an event night at SAP. We waited 40 minutes after being seated for someone to take our order. and they ran out of some items. The restaurant wasn’t even near full capacity. We had to fetch someone to take our order, bring us bread, bring us the bill, and take our payment.
