it was our daughters Birthday and they really go out of their way to ensure that birthdays are special at Peli Peli. The food was fantastic and the drinks were spot on. Waiter was excellent. Peli Peli never disappoints - Never.
The occasion was the visit from our faraway sister/niece. The waiter was very knowledgeable, about the food and wines. All courses were brought to the table simultaneously. One meat dish wasn’t cooked enough and the issue was immediately corrected with effusive apologies tended to by the manager. Everything was what should be expected of a top notch establishment. Highly recommended.
We had an excellent overall experience. The service was friendly, timely and appreciative. The filets were done to perfection and the sampler was wonderful. We need to try the fish next time !
First visit to Peli Peli. Our server was outstanding, engaging and very knowledgeable. The food was great. I would return again.
The food was delicious and the service excellent. We were there for dinner. Our party ordered their Carrot Ginger Bisque Soup and their Caesar Salad and their Prawn Bisque Soup to start followed by their 8 oz Filet with Roasted Red Potatoes and Brussel Sprouts and their Great Karoo Lamb Chops also with Roasted Red Potatoes and Brussel Sprouts. We paired our entreés with Courage Pinotage.
We went to Peli Peli for our weekly date night and we were not disappointed. The manager found out it was our first time there and she went out of her way to make us feel welcome. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and we went with two of his recommendations, including an off-the-menu entre. I had the kingklip and my husband had a steak. The rice, roasted potatoes and mango coleslaw are outstanding. We will definitely be back to try the Saturday brunch. A little expensive for just a date night, but this was certainly an enjoyable special treat for us.
Every time we go to Peli Peli we have an amazing experience! The food and the service is outstanding!
We have already tried their Bobotie, Peli Peli Prawn Cakes, Espetada, 8 oz. Filet, South African Kingklip & Scallops and for me their best entree is the Cape Town Skillet, with Tiger Prawns... I recommend the side of Brussels Sprouts too.
Also, on Brunch time, we had their Filet Medallions & SA Eggs Benedict as the waitress suggested and it was really good too!
I just think the noise level is too high and it is not a restaurant to go with little kids. The vibe is more to adults, and they don't have boosters/high chair.
I usually use the Open Table app to reserve our table previously and when we go there to celebrate something (you can mention the occasion on the reservation), they always surprise us!
Always a great choice
Peli -Peli this was one of the most incredible evening with my family on my wife BIRTHDAY the atmosphere was incredible ,peaceful and comfortable our waitress ERIC I would call a friend WHO IS REMARKABLE OUTSTANDING PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL THERE'S NOTHING ELSE THAT I CAN SAY BUT OUTSTANDING.....THANKS FOR THE EXPERIENCE
Service was top notch w/ Gus. Food was excellent and has never disappointed at all. Ever! Our go to place for a night out alone or with friends
It was overall good! This time it seemed like they were short on staff so it took our waiter quite a while for each step to follow up.
Great food, great service. First time to dine here. Very nicely surprised. Will come again.
Peli Peli is the best restaurant for food value and service
Food was great as usual.
I was in Houston for 5 days, had this as my first meal out and decided I had to go back again for more and to buy the cookbook to take home :)
Had a Birthday party of 11 and the staff was very accommodating and attentive. It is tucked in the restaurant courtyard at the Vintage, which is a great setting. Definitely recommend you try this place and its creative cuisine.
We had dinner with friends who had not been here before. We all enjoyed the dinner and our waiter was great!
Aside of the 3 very loud women at the bar, the service and of course the food was nothing short of fantastic. We try to have dinner at this location at least once per month.
Happy hour is definitely a must for all if you enjoy cocktails
Poor service and Chilean Sea Bass under par. This had been my favorite restaurant until Sunday, when they missed the mark. The cut of fish was small and broken into little pieces with a lot of parsley on top. Our server spent most of her time at other tables, instead of at our table. She forgot several items, and needed to be reminded a few times. I don’t know if it’s under new management, or short staffed. Just wasn’t the Peli Peli I’d known in the past.
Great food, great staff but not a cheap place to eat we save it for special occassions. Very nice place for cooked by a chef and very unique. You wont find their menu anyplace else in Houston.
Food was excellent, please try the South African sampler it was fantastic! The Biltong was delicious, the chicken flavorful and the Farmers sausage was memorable. The wine was perfect. I will definitely visit again
One of my favorite places to have exciting seafood and great service! The food is always fresh and cooked to perfection, the staff friendly and professional!
Tried to seat us in a narrow addition before we asked to be moved.
The food at Peli Peli is delicious. If you like your food impeccably seasoned without over reliance on salt and pepper, you will be pleased. The ambiance is excellent for friendly gatherings, but not desirable for quiet intimate discussions. You are seated quite close to your neighbors and the atmosphere is lively.
Wonderful experience - one of our favorite date night/special occasion restaurants. We were seated in a corner booth and insulated from some of the noise. Appetizer (bacon wrapped chicken) was delicious but unfortunately luke warm. Entrees (steak espetada and filet hugenot) were perfect. I enjoy that they are efficient but do not rush you. Reservations are a must. Try the dessert sampler - or just go for the sticky toffee pudding.
Dinner at Peli Peli was, as always, great. Our waitperson, Sean, did a fine job. Friendly and fun without being too obvious. The food was delish.
This Gourmet restaurant is one of Houston's best. Unusual entries and unusual flavors. Try the Sticky Toffee Pudding, which is a miraculous desert!
Your won't be disappointed!
I've been in the Houston for a little over 6 years. This is still some of the best food I've had since I moved to Texas. Excellent, authentic food that is coupled with hands down service. Wasn't my first visit and definitely won't be my last.
Delicious flavor combinations and hand crafted cocktails paired with great service. I recommend the filet with Huguenot and the brussel sprouts as a side.
Excellent as usual. Very good food, very flavorful and unique - from appetizers to dessert.
Two words: brussel sprouts! I've eaten here many times, but last night was the fist time I had the brussel sprouts. They were so good!! Our server, Sebastian, was passionate about the food (as am I), and he was great. I got the Huguenot filet (med rare- perfection!), brussel sprouts, and roasted potatoes. Plus- sticky toffee pudding for dessert always makes a great night greater! Everything was wonderful!
Food was wonderful and service was excellent
This was a great place if you want some awesome food, drinks, service, and you want to spend a little more. I don't rate 5 stars often, but this place gets 5 stars!
Food is always delicious and their Belini's are the best I've ever had!
Valentines dinner. I had the 8 oz filet, didn’t plan on eating it all but it was just too good. Chose the Diane sauce because I like mushrooms- it was perfect. My Valentine had the sea bass which he enjoyed. The brussel sprouts are as good as they say. We ordered the chocolate mousse cake to go-delish! The ambience was very nice and our waiter attentive and professional. The prices make this a special occasion restaurant for us and we would go back.
Made reservation online and did not know they only had a valentine day menu. Not much to chose from but it was good. Had I known about the menu I would not had made reservations.
We went for Valentine's Day. We had made a reservation and, when we arrived, we were immediately seated. However, instead of seating us in the restaurant they walked us outside, around the corner, and down the block to some other space.
It was clear they had tried to make it look nice, but it had an overflow tent kind of feel and was very loud. We asked to be re-seated. At first, the waiter we spoke to was very rude about it, but we explained that part of why we picked this restaurant for V-Day was the ambiance and this room was nothing like the actual restaurant we had expected when we booked our reservation weeks in advance. He went to get a manager and the manager was very gracious about it and immediately re-seated us in the main restaurant.
The rest of the evening was great. Our new waiter was very attentive. The food was wonderful, and the main restaurant is beautiful and much quieter than the overflow room.
I definitely do recommend Peli Peli for special occasions (order the brussel sprouts) because the food is amazing, but I will probably note in the future that I would like to be seated in the main restaurant.
Used open table reservation on Valentines Day - no wait - seated immediately.
Food is always good and tasty but service could be improved.
