We had a beautiful meal with many starters like lobster carpaccio, roman artichokes, stuffed peppers, and eggplant gratin. They were all fabulous. For entrees equally as delicious we tried the halibut fresh flaky and cooked to perfection along with a veal chop that was to die for . Great service and a nice espresso to end with.
Amazing meal, great menu with all kinds of choices. Nice ambiance, couldn't be better
The best fettuccine bolognese I ever had
The other entrees my party tells were just as wonderful. Amazing strawberry appetizer, great cocktail list. Finished with a wonderful tasting of biscotti and espresso. Simply wonderful on every count.
We visited Peppercorn which was highly rated for a dinner prior to attending an event at the Bushnell theater. We left 1.5 hours to eat and then make it to the theater. it was quite busy but we had reservations but were seated 15 minutes late after a little bit of prodding. We were seated and waited about 10 minutes before a server showed up. The manager was helpful, I think when she stopped by and said that a normal meal there takes 2 hours so we should probably order pasta. We were quite surprised that it would take that long to eat. It appeared as though they were overwhelmed due to the event but it is near the Bushnell so I would think it would not be a problem. From what we could see, some tables near us ordered an appetizer that did not show up until after the main course. We ordered gnocchi with tomato sauce and the ravioli with sage, orange butter sauce. The meal came fairly quickly as we ordered drinks and meal at same time. The waitress was pleasant but hard to locate at times during the meal. We tried about four times to get a cup of tea. The gnocchi was very starchy and not very pleasant. The tomato sauce was almost not existent, very dry. Overall a poor attempt. My ravioli was ok . Sauce was a bit bitter and the presentation was weak as the ravioli plate had a large puddle of sauce on once side. All in all, we will not be going back and will not be recommending. I was really surprised given how highly this place was rated.
Their was no wine list available asked for grated cheese never came we waited long time to order then the food came out super fast was it pre-cooked then reheated ? No salad with meal high priced for portions tables for two to close together felt like you were dining with the people next to you ! 2 entrees no salad 2 glasses of wine bill was 100.00 dollars no coffee no dessert !
Not terribly inspired food. Not bad quality, just perhaps too rich, not enough distinct flavors (e.g. more herbs and less butter for the lobster pasta dish would have made it quite a bit better; rib eye was ok, but perhaps I should have gotten the pepper corn sauce rather than whatever the special was). Bread and olive oil was very good. Overall a bit expensive relative to just ok food. Very good and friendly service despite a busy Saturday night. Will give it another try.
All about service and it was poor
Waiter forgot our order, came back and asked again and then forgot our app
Artichokes and meatballs were excellent. Pasta with lobster very tasty. Wine was great. Our service with Christine, as always, was the best!
A wonderful meal from start to finish. We had a tasting of the tagliolini con aragosta in addition to our entrees which were all sublime . The Valentine dessert plate had a delicate assemblage of long-stemmed chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate truffles, macaroons and biscotti that paired with espresso was a wonderful finish. 5 stars, with and extra one thrown in!
We were on our way to a Hartford Symphony and Peppercorn's was a great stop for dinner. We took advantage of the Valentine's Day fix price menu. Each item was delicious and both creative and attractively served.This was our second time there and we definitely will return soon again.
Outstanding as usual
Great risotto as well as homemade pasta with lobster. The special martinis were fabulous and they were so kind they offered chocolate hearts and pretty cookies due to Valentine's weekend.
A class act.
Great choice for Valentine's Day. Great special menu with all the traditional items for Lover's Day. Great homemade pastas, craft cocktails , and chocolate mousse or bread pudding . Great wine list with many reasonable buys. Great job to Peppercorns .
Been there for Valentine's Day for the last 7 years. Always a great experience. Food was cutting edge as usual. We loved the whole night.
The best Valentine's Day meal in years. The menu was fantastic everything fresh and beautiful. The chef even sent out surprises
What a classy thing to do in such a busy night
Kudos to everyone for such a good job
Although we had a reservation, we were kept waiting for an additional 35 minutes. While we waited, although the bar wasn’t extremely busy, the bartender didn’t acknowledge our presence for at least 10 minutes. When he finally asked for our drinks he was neither friendly nor welcoming. The host that finally seated us was friendly. The server was knowledgeable on the offerings. She was neither a super-star nor a dud. However, due to the restaurant being understaffed, she was probably just tired. Unfortunately the food was much better suited for an elderly home. Very, very, very, very bland. The food tasted like warm paper. The plating was nice. Great presentation. If I had an Instagram account, it would have been great! For eating, not so much. Overall, the experience was not horrible, but definitely not what is expected for $145 for 2 people.
