    We had a most enjoyable meal, as the food and service was impeccable. We ordered a double portion of street corn and were most satisfied with taste as well as presentation. Followed the corn with the Special of the night, the mussels which were most delicious is this fabulous sauce covered in peppers and onions. Finish the meal with carne assada and shrimp tacos with beans and rice. Selected the Ghost Pepper based on watching during an episode of Phantom Gourmet and was most happy on our decision to check out this Mexican beauty.....

    The restaurant was neat, clean and inviting. We had reservations and we sat right away. The music was lively. Staff all seemed friendly and knowledgeable about menu. We ordered eggs Benedict with Canadian bacon and eggs Benedict with Carnitas and cocktails. The drinks were great and served in fun glassware with a flower and lime on each! The food arrived on very tiny plates and but looked great! The food was delicious. Flavorful. The only negative comment we had is that the food was not hot but not cold. The portion size was perfect. The meat on both were delicious and I would definitely go back! I did find parking but I can see that this may be a draw back for some customers so if you can take the T ….the Savin Hill stop is right in front!

    We got there for reservation at 11 am we had to sit our self at a table because of staff being late but after the staff arrived, service and food was delicious. Only downside was having to wait for the employees to show up for their shift. 15min late

    The food was pretty good, the service was moderate. The music was very loud, so much so we couldn’t have a conversation at the table.

    We had a 5:30 reservation and the music was louder than it needed to be. I understand it’s popular at night so maybe save the extra volume for then. Food was fantastic

    I hate leaving bad reviews. It’s not my thing, but wow. First and last time at Ghost Pepper. We had a reservation and the restaurant was probably 2/3 full, and at no time a wait for tables so they weren’t THAT busy. The service was among the worst I’ve ever had. Our server promptly brought water and took our drink order, then disappeared. Like completely. After 30min I flagged down another server to find him. She reluctantly stopped and said they had a call off and were backed up. (There was no bartender behind the bar on a Friday night?!). Our sever finally arrived after 45min with 2 drinks for our party of 4. He did bring chips and guac on the house but didn’t actually apologize. It took another 15min for the other drinks. I had to flag down another server again to find our server who seemed to be intentionally ignoring our side of the restaurant. At 90min we were finally served food. Keep in mind during this little adventure, at no time did the server, or any server, or the host, ever apologize, check on us, or really even acknowledge the situation. I’m not even sure there was a manager on duty, but if there was, they suck at their job because they never stepped out to check on tables and we weren’t the only table waiting service. While the food was actually good, being completely ignored by everyone working in the restaurant was so awful I won’t dine there again. Side note: love the music but it was absolutely deafening.

    Great ambience and the drinks were amazing! We got a mimosa “pitcher” which actually turned out to be a tower. Best surprise that led to many memories for our group.
