Because it was a theatre night, Peppercorns was busy, and I think a little bit understaffed. Having said that, the food was excellent, and our waiter/host/owner(?) was amazing. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone who lives in Hartford, or who is attending an event at the Bushnell.
We were greeted warmly and had a lovely wait person. Food was delicious as always and the risotto came out perfectly hot! We even got a surprise treat from Dino.
We were glad to see a good size crowd and wish the best for Dino and his staff at Peppercorns!
Very memorable dinner experience, from the food to service everything was top notch.
An outstanding restaurant. Incredible, inventive menu with great service to match. Can’t wait to return.
Enjoyed another delicious dinner at Peppercorns. Food was outstanding and the staff was attentive. Great night out.
This place continues to create new exciting items.
Never a dull moment in Peppercorns
Dino is a genius in the kitchen.
Beautiful dinner outside in the middle of downtown Hartford. The menu was fabulous and the staff as nice as can be. The food from beginning to dessert was exceptional. Try the artichokes, the homemade ravioli, and their famous carrot cake.
Service was great, food was delicious and they were very cognizant of us having a quick dinner before theater.
Wonderful service and food. We loved our appetizers - peach burrata and figs. Entrees- cavatelli and halibut were great. Unfortunately way too full for dessert. Our server was very attentive.
We had an amazing meal before the theater. Everything was perfect and we had plenty of time to enjoy our time and get to the theater on time.
Amazing from start to finish! Traditional Italian with a modern flair. We just kept ordering more food every time we finished a plate & one thing was better than the next - figs, “peaches & cream,” eggplant, bruschetta, squash flowers, calamari, fettucine al tartufo, ravioli all’arancia. All were outstanding! The friendly service enhanced the experience.
We loved our whole meal from start to finish.
Delicious salmon, amazing ravioli, zucchini blossoms are a must and the desserts where phenomenal too.
Excellent choice for business meeting combined with elevated Italian cuisine with service to match.
Excellent as always
We loved everything about our evening. Great food was matched by attentive friendly service that was knowledgeable about the restaurant’s products.
We were treated so well on my birthday. Our choices were fantastic. And they ended it with chocolate for our special occasion.
I think we caught the restaurant on an off night because service was a bit under the norm. It was a real busy night but the owner made sure everything was ok. It meant a lot he took a personal interest in us being happy.
We waited 20 min and no one came to our table to greet us or even bring us menus. We notified the hostess and she brought menus but then we waited 15 minutes and STILL no one came to the table so we left hungry and very disappointed.
Peppercorns is consistently excellent in terms of food, drinks, service, and atmosphere!
Have been to Peppercorns Grill many times and for good reason: it’s outstanding! The food is genuine Italian cuisine, the service is very good, with an ambiance to match. If you haven’t been there yet, try it.
Food is fabulous! I’ve never had a bad meal experience here. Unique plates and plating. Love it!
The only negative is that we were seated in the side, overflow room. The chairs all squeak even after we switched them out with other tables. That room needs a re-do-it’s super dated. But service and food superb! Beat in Hartford in my opinion.
Great in every way.
Outstanding from start to finish
Everything looks perfect, food, service atmosphere, it’s an excellent restaurant that everybody needs to attend.
Food was amazing, had so many appetizers all so delicious , meatballs, mussels and clams, octopus and baby artichokes. Had the veal chop and the ravioli for entree!! All fabulous, yummmmm
Have been guests of others and finally came on our own. Loved it! An entire menu of specials plus the regular menu--delightful! Love seeing cinghale and coniglio on the menu. service was right on.
Easy walk from Front Street/Infinity Music Hall/Convention Center or from Bushnell. If it's not already, put this place on your musts for Hartford.
Loved everything we tried.
Great pasta seafood and veal.
Try it, it’s the beat
Great go to place with outstanding service and food.
Bartender not very attentive
Delicious from start to finish. Great craft type cocktails, a reasonably priced wine list with so many choices at different price points.
The menu encompasses from traditional to contemporary Italian dishes with specials on the other side that can be rather cutting edge. Just a great lunch for all.
Outstanding food and service.
This is our to h go to place from now on.
I had not been to Peppercorn's Grill in several years. Our group of 4 adults had a great time. We were seated in the middle raised area, which was nice, we could see all around the restaurant. Food was amazing, we had the Meatball appetizer, salads, Veal Chop, Fettuccine Al Cinghiale (Wild Boar), Ossobuco and Salmon. Everything was great and we were not rushed at all. Highly recommended.
Great service with a cutting edge type of menu
One side has all the traditional things the other side had many exciting choices
We sat outside and it a very nice experience
One of the best restaurants in Hartford. The quality of the food and the menu options are wonderful and sophisticated but yet not fussy. Everything is cooked to order and if you choose to do so, you may work with the server to adjust the entree to fit your tastes. Great bar and wine menu as well. We highly recommend Peppercorns Grill and look forward to returning.
Peppercorns Grill is outstanding. It has excellent food, from the appetizers right to the desserts. Give it a try. You’ll enjoy it.
It was simply amazing.
Great pastas, veal chop, and seafood
We enjoyed everything
The carrot cake and chocolate bread pudding were memorable also
Great night out
Everything was great . Customer service was outstanding food was delicious.
The service was excellent. We started with a salad and calamari, the calamari was the best I have had in a long time! My halibut was out of this world with the corn purée! Can’t wait to go back!!
