Great spot for outside dining! Hopefully, add more options to their menu; the menu is an excellent and beautiful selection of wine by the glass and reasonable!
It was a great dining experience but for having to wait half an hour after reserved time for a table left 4 of us standing in the street. We asked for drinks while waiting and they could not do that. For this reason best not to go hungry. Once in... it was very good.
Great outdoor option in NYC. Really enjoyed the salmon.
The food was absolutely phenomenal. I rarely ever write reviews but I had to write one for this place because I was so impressed. I ordered the Chicken Shashlik and woooww I definetly “Lik” my plate clean. Best kabob style chicken I’ve ever had (and I’ve dined in Dubai). The ambiance was also very beautiful and perfect for a date night. Definitely recommend and will be coming back for more. Also thank you for the amazing service Pera! Our server kept checking in on us throughout the dinner and it was a busy Sunday so much appreciated.
This was amazing. For pandemic times, being in the garden felt like a true restaurant experience.
Birthday dinner. Awesome experience and loved the out dining setup.
Beautiful outdoor seating, fantastic service and great food. Definitely a must-visit during these pandemic times.
Came during COVID and was seated on the sidewalk; it was covered and blocked off so we were not bothered by cars or people walking. The best part was the service; our waiter was very attentive and accommodating. Since it was my birthday we had a cake, which he placed a sparkler on top of and played for us. Food was decent; drinks were nice and strong. Appetizers were good. Will definitely be coming back!
Great ambiance and outdoor scenery! The food is only ok, but there is a whole outdoor dining area away from the street that also has physical distancing between tables.
Host was incredibly rude and the food was fair at best.
Great outdoor seating area especially during COVID times. Nice not to have to sit on the street (though they also have extra seating on the curb as well as their courtyard).
Great and romantic !
Loved the service and ambiance but the food wasn't that great. I'd recommend this place for the "experience" not the food.
Beautiful ambiance, loved the outdoor space and it was shaded for the hot day. The service didn’t check on us as often as we wanted, we had to flag them down a few times. They forgot one of our drinks and one appetizer but overall the food was delicious and servers were nice. It felt very clean and safe. Bathroom stocked with hand sanitizer. Would frequent again.
College Friends reunion after a year
Great place great food!
Lovely experience! Great service, food and ambiance.
Great service and experience. Would go back again
The food was amazing! The service was crap! Go for the food. Hopefully you get better service than we did.
Chicken was raw.
My first meal during covid Phases 4. So as a healthcare worker. It was very important to me to make sure distancing and protocols are put in place. I went in hesitant but eager to spend time with a special friend and enjoy NY dining experience again. Out door seating was the way to go. They have their own outdoors section away from the street and one on the sidewalk. Like we all are seeing.
Make reservations for sure. When it came to the drinks they were phenomenal. The meals because we haven’t eaten out in 4 months. You forget the restaurant portions are big so we spilt a meal and appetizer and were very satisfied.
Food was phenomenal as always! I recommend the feta, water melon salad. Make sure you add shrimp to it. The Octopus is a definite must! Saturday was totally booked out as they have out door seating. Make sure you have reservations as I saw people being turned away without reservations.
Family get together
Fantastic set up, service, food and experience. Great staff and great atmosphere.
Great outdoor patio. Amazing calamari
Excellent experience as always. The seating outside was perfect for social distancing. Food is amazing as always
We really enjoyed the courtyard dining, with perfect service making sure that we had what we wanted while giving us comfort. The menu is diverse, and the food was delicious.
Dinner at Pera was great! The outdoor space is really nice and it was a great reminder of NYC pre-COVID. We were seated at a table (there are also covered cabana-like spots) that luckily had a large sun umbrella next to it. It did end up raining as our meal ended, but the staff quickly came and adjusted so we were minimally soaked.
The food was delicious and so summer fresh. We had the eggplant, octopus, grilled chicken, and country salad. I would recommend all.
Best outdoor dining spot in NY - great atmosphere, large outdoor area.
Great food - beautiful patio. The staff is lovely & accommodating!
Great experience all around, great location, darling patio, wonderful food. I would definitely eat here again!
very nice meal in their outdoor space. excellent mezas. nice drinks. great covid dining in the village
Need lights outside
Always delicious and great outdoor space
Our service was great, drinks were very good and the food was also very good.
We had the Octopus appetizer and for entree had the seafood paella and seared salmon.
Give it a try!
After we were sat, we waited about 10-15 minutes for someone to come over and greet us. When I got up and asked a person if they could send someone to help us, our server when he finally came over the first thing he said was “you’re ready to order” no apologies or even a hello.
We asked for a bottle of Prosecco to toast our friends engagement and he says, “is that it?” in a very rude and sarcastic way. He rushed us to order and was very impatient.
After we placed our order, we never saw the waiter again until we asked for the check. We had to order drinks or more food with the food runner or whoever came our way.
The food was awful with the exception of the octopus. Everyone hated their plate. I had the burger and it was overcooked and the bread was stale and tasted old. The fries was drenched in oil and cold.
Overall horrible experience and definitely not recommend this place.
The eggs Benedict were not very good. The potatoes and the biscuit tasted like fish.
Pera is always on point!
The GM Sezgen has a wonderful personality and regardless the amount of guests, caters to there every needs!!!
I’m happy they are open again and will be a regular now...
