Food was great and the price was very good. Wine pairings for Vday were $25. The service was outstanding. Its a nice place for special occasions. I also enjoy the live jazz band. I would recommend it to anyone.

We were greeted by a very pleasant server however, when making a reservation which was for a Sunday the restaurant states on their website that there is a “Sunday Supper” offered at $34. When we arrived I inquired and told that there was only the NYC restaurant week menu for $42. Same type of menu for $34 but you pay more during restaurant week. How does this make any sense?
The food was nothing special, not planning on returning anytime soon if ever.
Luckily, the service saved the overall experience.

Service was excellent; staff were friendly and attentive. Unfortunately, the food was only mediocre. Not bad, just nothing outstanding or inspiring. Still, the ambience was warm, inviting and upscale, so I would recommend to anyone who's interested in a "scene," rather than a notable culinary experience.

The mezze trio and the side of artichokes with garlic were very flavorful but the gnocchi was absolutely bland and in fact tasted weird with the addition of raisins.

Lunch was great! The server was a bit slow to bring the check, given it was a weekday lunch. Great vegetarian options.

Superb dining experience! The food was incredible, I had the mixed grill, which was perfect, and we all started with the chef's mezze plate , a superb collection of Mediterranean appetizers. Service was fantastic, we were constantly attended to. Dessert was even better, and between the decor, the ambiance, the crowd and the food, can't beat Pera for a super start or finish to your evening out in NYC!

The food as usual was very good. A bit disappointed in the service. It took a very long time to be served the entrée after the appetizers were served. Perhaps due to restaurant week?
