It was a wonderful experience. In spite of having a couple of large groups in the restaurant and the sparse staff, they made it work. The hostess pitched in to clear and set our table and the waiter was very helpful in making it a memorable experience. I was very thankful to have the reservation and you made that easy also.

Did not care for the crabmeat. Texture poor and fishy taste. Western omelet and eggs Benedict were quite good.

The veal piccata which I always order at the Peppermill was not up to Peppermill’s usual standard. The sauce was a bit thick and there was way too much of it. The 2slices of veal and pasta were swimming in the sauce.

Took us on time. Waitress was pleasant, but she was new and made a lot of mistakes. My salad came out first on a hot plate> I sent it back. My bisque was served secong instead of first and was salty. Entree was not what I expected and was just average. Out of most deserts which came with my meal. while we were still eating they proceeded to clang dishes, drop leaves on table making so much noise and sweeping up and dust flying all over.

Very attentive and personable waitress. Food was very good. We were happy to find a local restaurant that served breakfast, brunch, lunch, and main entrees at 11:45A. Good value for the money.

My only issue is that we arrived at 11:00 and couldn’t order breakfast. There should be something on the website that states when breakfast is no longer offered.

I would recommend the Peppermill to a friend. Not only is the food very good, but I felt safe as socially distancing and cleanliness were not an issue.

I’ve been in NOLA for 6 months and this has been my favorite restaurant by far… until now. Service was great. No complaints. They had several very large parties and our server was able to juggle pretty good but the food was not up to par. We both had the chicken with crab, mushroom, artichoke hearts and I was very dissatisfied. The chicken was tough and dry and basically tasteless. Sad to have has that experience after loving every other item we’ve tried. Also, the place was very busy and the two hosts/hostesses were standing at the front with nothing to do except play on their phone while everyone else was running around taking care of customers. Not a good look.

We had a delicious lunch at Pepper Mill. I can recommend the Friday fish special. A companion enjoyed the chicken club salad. I liked that a small dinner salad was served before my entree. The very tasty salad dressings are house made.

The Peppermill has excellent food - consistently. Great lunch specials but their regular menu is great too. It is a friendly, neighborhood, can't-go-wrong restaurant. Their breakfast is terrific too. There is a lot of road work on Severn but the parking lot is still accessible from the side street and there is a parking lot in the back accessible via N. Arnault. The restaurant is worth the road work inconvenience.

In spite of all of the negative reviews I've seen due to staff shortages, etc., this restaurant didn't disappoint. The wait staff was attentive, prompt handling of our order with a restaurant that was practically full. Kudos for the customer service!

It was noisy due to a big crowed celebrating Father's Day. I thought it would have been nice to closed the doors so it won't disturb others in the restaurant. However the food was delicious! I will be back.

Sundays are always busy at Peppermill, and yesterday was no exception. The restaurant is still somewhat understaffed, but our waiter, Walter, was over-the-top amazing. He was handling five tables includes a table of 15 women celebrating a birthday. Walter was friendly, calm, and collected. He never made excuses -- he really didn't have to -- he brought everything we requested in a timely manner. The food was delicious as usually.

Went for brunch on Sunday not realizing they do not serve extended breakfast hours. However was accommodated with a delicious crawfish omelet with salad, potatoe wedges and english muffin. Everything was great! Server and hostess were both friendly and helpful. Will return!

From the moment we entered the staff made us feel special. Our table was ready and we were seated immediately. Our wait staff was very attentive and our orders were taken as soon as we were ready to order. The food came to our table quickly and the courses were spaced properly. We did not have to wait for the next course nor was the next course brought before the current course was finished. The food was hot and delicious and reasonably priced. I would recommend The Peppermill to anyone who wants a pleasant dining experience.

The Peppermill was as usual excellent. Two of us had the Soft Shell crab Almondine, one had the Veal Alexander, and one had the Panne Veal. All meals were excellent, as was the service.

We had a wonderful experience at the Peppermill. I made reservations because we had a party of 3 with 2 persons in wheelchairs. I called the morning of my reservation needing to increase to 4 persons total and was met with pleasantry and kindness. Super glad I made reservations because the place was completely packed. Regardless that there wasn’t a seat to be spared, the staff were attentive and speedy. I never once felt I was an inconvenience for the 5 refills of iced tea I needed that hot day but instead felt our server was happy to accommodate. The service was impeccable. As for the food, it was just as delightful. There wasn’t a meal that wasn’t perfection. The red gravy is slightly sweet the way a NOLA red gravy should be. None of that marinara nonsense. The shrimp and mirliton dressing is, hands down, the best I’ve had in the city. Calamari flavorful and perfectly crispy. If I could give an extra star, I absolutely would.

We had a very poor wait staff. The order was not correct and all courses were served simultaneously. One dish was returned and came back with entree cut in half. By this point we were exacerbated. Then the dessert which we discussed initially was sold out. This waitress we have had before pandemic and she was not good. After several trips to this previously loved restaurant we will spend our money elsewhere. I will also share the name with the restaurant owner/manager. Our table was W5/1 on May 16 at 2:33pm check 954. Server %3001
