My partner and I had dinner at Pepela. We both had prosecco rose, which was really nice, and salmon which we both enjoyed.
This was recommended by a Georgian friend, and the food did not disappoint. We came early but the restaurant was completely empty!
Had dinner at Pepela, chose light summer menu items, including Pepela Salad, which was delicious. Also ordered the lamb chops which were done very well. The food was very appetizing and our server Kate was very attentive. She sat us right next to the balcony with open vaulted space. I recommend this venue for a couples dinner. I went with my wife. The walls are appointed with lots of art work. I drank Satrapezo Saperavi, which is a fabulous limited edition Georgian red wine. Never knew that Georgian wines were this good.
Absolutely horrific service
The only good food was the hot cheese bread. Everything else really mediocre.
Lovely spacious place. Vey reasonable prices, good food, great ambiance.
We came by Pepela on Sunday and were very surprised. They have real opera singers performing there. Our server Julia explained to us that they have opera night every Sunday without any additional charge for it. The place looks like private house and we were hesitate for a minute that we dressed not right for the place. We have had infused vodka (Georgians call it Chacha) and had entrees - lamb Chops (of course) I love meat:) it was marinated some special way yammi -I tried to find out how they seasoning it but got no clue:) and georgian dumplings. now I am planninand to have my birthday at Pepela.
My husband and I celebrated our 8th anniversary at Pepela! Romantic candlelight dinner for two:). Mango lobster salad was their special for that night. We loved it. Amazing tasteful paradise on a plate! Portions are so big, we took it home and it was great for the next day lunch!!! Also restaurant stuff treated us with dessert Napoleon cake. They made our little romantic dinner so special.
What a great friday night I came with my friend at this elegant, romantic place.. very welcoming and friendly service. I ordered the Pepela salad and it was sooooo tasty omg! Nice wine list, a lot of semisweet wines. I will definitely recommend for parties or romantic dates.Be back soon but this time with my boyfriend for some quality time:)
I went to Pepela with my date for a Friday night dinner. I have eaten Georgian food before and I was looking forward to sampling some dishes. The menu surprisingly has some non-Georgian continental items that are top notch. Semi Sweet wines are rare in NY and Pepela has a large collection from Georgia. The evening was fantastic, with live music, a vibrant ambiance and a staff willing to cater to any request. Several large tables hosted big groups which added to the energy of the place in a positive way. I will definitely be back with a big group.
My meal consisted of boiled frozen mixed vegetables like you can buy at Costco. Food was so bland. Waitstaff was hostile and took forever. Strange ambiance with live music by a man with a keyboard.
