Skopelos at New World
Our first visit. It will not be our last. I was not aware Pensacola had such a high end dining room experience such as Skopelos.Atmosphere, food and service were second to none. Service was provided by Craig. He performed excellent but unstuffy service. Food was creatively executed. Amazing fm start to finish.
Great food... attentive staff... love this place!!
Thank you very much for the feedback! We really appreciate it, and look forward to seeing you again!
Had a relaxing dinner over an hour and a half, our choice. The service Josh provided was outstanding. The meals were very good. Overall we had a nice experience. We hope this will continue since we've had a couple of subpar experiences in the past. So glad we gave it try.
We're so happy we could provide you with a relaxing and tasty dinner. Thank you very much for the feedback! We look forward to seeing you again!
Nice atmosphere, good food and great service.
Thank you so much!
Was great server was excellent
We're happy to hear it! Thank you, Doc!
Food was amazing. Staff was amazing. It’s a place you must go to.
Thank you so much!
Absolutely lovely hidden gem for Sunday brunch and we will be back for dinner and check out the bar for happy hour as well. Great menu selection too!!!
Thank you, Michael! We have $3 premium Happy Hour ($3 for select premium liquors, house wines, house beers) every Tues/Wed/Thurs from 11am until 7pm, which you can enjoy at the bar or anywhere in the restaurant. We look forward to seeing you again for that, dinner, or any other meal! Thank you again!
Thank you for celebrating Valentine's Day, Linda! We're so happy you enjoyed everything!
The service for our dinner took a long time from the time we sat down. The chairs were uncomfortable. But once the food arrived with was way over an hour, it was delicious.
We really appreciate the feedback, and happy to read that your dinner was delicious! Saturday was a bit of Valentine's Day rolled over (meaning it was one of the busiest days of the year), so please know that your wait time was not the typical experience here. With that said, it certainly shouldn't have taken as long as you noted and I'm very sorry for that! We hope we'll have the pleasure of seeing you again!
This was our second visit, both times totally different menu choices and all were delicious and a lovely presentation. Our pear martinis were very refreshing. We sat in the bar area which is quieter than the main dining room, however, we had to use our cell phone lights in order to read the menu. We ordered wine when our entree was served and we didn't get it until our meal was nearly finished after much pausing and waiting, I did ask our server if she forgot the order and she had not, so it wasn't our server's fault, she finally stood at the bar and waited and waited while the bar tenders were chatting but not making drinks. We will be back to try more appetizers and entrees.
Thank you so much for your feedback, Robin! On top of the lighting in the bar, I'm passing along your note about the bar service while you were here to our managers. I'm very sorry for the issues, but again, your feedback is very appreciated and helpful. We look forward to next time with you!
We were joined by another couple for dinner and we enjoyed it very much! The gals even got a rose- it was Valentines Weekend! Food was delicious!
We're glad you enjoyed it! Thank you, Susan. Please come back and see us again!
Service appeared inexperienced; slow to take order, didn’t replace silverware between servings, extremely slow to fulfill drink orders and required reminding, and slow to close the check. Entrees were good, but appetizer was disappointing.
I'm sorry there was a problem with your service, but I'm so glad you enjoyed the entrees! Thank you very much for the feedback. We do have a couple new servers and I apologize if there were some growing pains with them on a busy Valentine's Day. I'll pass this along to management too as they work closely with our staff to always help them improve. Please come back and see us again!
Getting a Rose was a nice touch. Our server was very busy. She apologized for us having to wait too long between courses. Our food was not hot when we received it. This included our appetizer, baked oysters and our entrees, snapper and scamp Cervantes. Since we had spent two hours on our appetizer, salad and entree, we decided to skip dessert. We will probably return, but not anytime soon.
Thank you for joining us for Valentine's Day dinner, Julia! I'm very sorry there was an issue with the heat of your meal. That is definitely not a typical experience here; we hope you had a chance to talk with your server or one of our managers about the problem? We always want to make your experience the best it can possibly be! Thank you so much for the feedback, we really appreciate it and look forward to seeing you again.
Food was wonderful. Especially good service. Ordered off menu during Sunday brunch. Waiter and kitchen granted every special menu request. Not hurried. Beautiful setting.
Thank you for joining us for Sunday brunch! We're thrilled you enjoyed everything. Please come back and see us again!
We celebrated my birthday and the food was amazing. I have to have gluten free food. They have so many options.
Happy Birthday! We're glad you were happy with all of our gluten free options, Julie. Thanks so much for the kind words, and for celebrating your special day with us! Hope we'll see you again!
We celebrated our 38 year anniversary and the staff were fantastic! It was a fun night and the food and wine were just perfect.
Thank you for celebrating your anniversary with us, Patrick! We're so happy you had fun with us. Please come back and see us again!
I come a lot to Skopelos for lunch with friends and it is EXCELLENT. Went for dinner last Saturday night for a change and had the GROUPER and it was fabulous! Had reservations, and hoped to be seated in the main dining room, but, not, which was a little disappointing. Won't stop me from coming back.
Thank you for the kind words, Mary! We're glad you enjoyed the Grouper Margarita, and that you regular here for lunch, but so sorry we couldn't accommodate you in the Barcelona room last Saturday night. We look forward to seeing you again for lunch, dinner, or maybe even Sunday brunch! ;)
We have eaten here many times and every time the food exceeds our expectations. This time we shared a surf and turf and had more than enough to eat evening splitting the meal....great place
Thank you for dining with us, and for the kind words! We look forward to seeing you again!
However, food wasn’t seasoned at all, the lightly battered grouper with seasonal vegetable dish I received, had no seasoning to its name. The menu description claimed it came with sauce, but there was not but a fourth a teaspoon of sauce on the plate. The seafood dish my boyfriend had received, also had no seasoning. It’s a shame when the collards on the plate were the most seasoned thing he ate. Pensacola seafood is some of the best, if not the best, on the gulf coast. So this dining experience was a complete let down. We wanted to try something new, and probably won’t be doing that again. One more note, if you don’t plan on eating much and want to spend a small fortune, this is your place.
Skopelos is where you go when your doctor puts you on a low-sodium diet.
We appreciate the honesty, Jenna! I'm so sorry you found your food to be under-seasoned and that you didn't have enough sauce for your grouper. I've passed your review along to our head Chefs, who really appreciate feedback from our guests. Thank you for coming in and trying something new! We hope you'll give us a try again some time!
I visited Skopelos for my birthday and was NOT disappointed! From the atmosphere, to the service, and to the cuisine which is divine, I was left wanting nothing more. I enjoyed every second of my time there and I honestly cannot wait to visit again.
We can't wait to have you again, Hannah! Thank you for celebrating your birthday with us -- and for the kind words!
Absolutely a wonderful dining experience when we met friends there for lunch. Will go again soon, also will go for dinner as that menu looks very rnjoyable too.
Thank you, Barbara! We're thrilled you enjoyed lunch, and will look forward to seeing you for dinner (and maybe Sunday brunch?) too!
Three friends and I had lunch at Skopelos. The food was delicious. Scamp Cervantes is always a winner. The cherries jubilee were great and fixed at the table. Craig was our waiter and he was fantastic.
Awesome! This was a great experience with wonderful food, service, and atmosphere!
Thank you, Chris! We're glad you enjoyed everything and hope you'll come back and see us again!
Skopelos never disappoints. We had a lovely brunch,pancakes were amazong and my friends grouper was in her words divine. Angel was our server and she was perfect
We're thrilled you enjoyed the ricotta pancakes, grouper margarita, and service from Angel! Thank you very much for the review! We look forward to your next time here. :)
Wonderful food and service. I highly recommend.
Thank you very much! We appreciate it!
Table next to us, people (2 women) were periodically laughing too loudly or shrieking. Hard to even hear the server to order. Still great time in spite of them.
While we can't control the way other guests periodically express their happiness when they're here, we appreciate reading your happiness through this Open Table review. ;) We're thrilled you enjoyed the food. Please come back and see us again!
The staff at Skopelos were positively outstanding. They responded beautifully to our request for a quiet table, and a couple managers stopped by to make sure we were satisfied with everything. Our only request would be that they use a little less salt in the food preparation. My husband is very restricted on sodium due to his heart. I wonder if we could have made this request ahead of time without hurting the chef's feelings. Overall it was a lovely evening.
Thank you for your review, Janet! I'm glad we were able to get you and your husband a table that you enjoyed, and that our staff was helpful! We'll pass your note along to the Chef as well -- we are always happy to accommodate special requests, so please don't hesitate to ask for them! :) Thank you again, we'll look forward to your next visit!
We frequent this restaurant and love the food, the staff and most times the ambiance and intimate setting. For some reason this time the noise level was high and I feel it stemmed from a pre dinner party at the bar, I made mention to the noise to the Hostess and she politely moves the group to a private dinning room however, an hour of our dinner was contending with the noise....did not make for a romantic dinner with my wife as it normally does. Not the restaurants fault, as a recommendation for the future if the staff notice that the noise level is getting a bit loud in the bar area...try to accommodate the rest of the patrons.
We really appreciate your feedback, James! I'm sorry for the issues with the patrons at the bar, but glad our hostess was able to help out. We'll pass your review along to all of our managers. Thank you so much!
OverAll very good. They had a special event going and that slowed service considerably. Kept apologizing for that to everyone in the dining room. Servers were excellent. Management just didn’t have enough people working that night
Thank you for the feedback, Barry! I'm very sorry there were issues with the timing of your food. We did have an event going on, but that shouldn't have had an impact on you. We'll definitely pass this along to both management and the owner. Thank you!
My boyfriend chose Skopelos for New Years Eve. It did not disappoint. Great atmosphere, great food, excellent service. Great place to end 19 and begin 2020. We will definitely be back and will recommend to others.
Thank you so much, Darrin! We look forward to seeing you again in 2020. Happy New Year!
Just delicious as always, and superb service!
It was lovely to introduce my daughter to Skopelos at New World during her visit to us from England .
Thank you very much for dining with us -- and for bringing your daughter to enjoy as well! We really appreciate it and hope to see you again!
Everything just perfect Christmas Eve dinner.
Waited approximately 10 minutes to get water while others around us received water. When waiter showed up, he apologized stating they just told him.
I'm really sorry there was an issue with the timing of your water, Julia! I'll pass this along to our manager. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your meal!
I didn't know what to expect after all these years, but I was immensely pleased, and it proved to be a great way for my relatives and I to be fed on a Christmas Eve lunch. We all swore that we will come back as much as we can.
Ambience: Classy but not stuffy
Cost: Very reasonable
I would heartily recommend Skopelo's to anyone who likes fine food in a harmonious setting. I plan to reserve a room there some weekend and just walk around downtown and return to chow down on good eats in the restaurant!
It seemed like our waitress was having a bad night. She left us for 10-15 minutes after taking our drink order and only brought one drink back which was never refilled. She seemed preoccupied. The food was beyond delicious. From the appetizers to the soups to the main course, we were impressed and pleased.
Thank you for your feedback! I'm really happy you loved the food, but definitely concerned about the issue with your server! I've passed this along to our managers so they can share with all of our staff. That is certainly not the norm here, and we really hope we'll have a chance to show you better next time! Thank you so much again for the compliments on the meal. We appreciate it!
This was our first time here and it was just wonderful! We had a Christmas dinner with friends. The food was so delicious and our waiter Henry went above and beyond! We will definitely be back. The only complaint we had was the noise level in the glassed in area was extremely loud. But everything else was above and beyond our expectations!!!
Thank you so much for your feedback! We will pass this along to our managers & Henry. And I'm so sorry you felt our Barcelona room was loud -- we will pass this along to the owner, as we are looking into new sound buffering for all of our dining rooms. Thank you so much again!
Went for the Sunday Brunch. The obvious things I'd address are... The brisket was a dry and not as tender as it could have been, the link sausage was slightly undercooked, I wish there had been a scrambled egg option on the buffet table rather than waiting in line for the omelet chef, the desserts were not replenished soon enough.
With that out of the way... I enjoyed the cheese grits, bacon and blueberry scones and the staff was great!
Thank you for your thorough and helpful feedback, George! We'll pass this along to our Chefs. Please come back and see us again some time!
We had a great experience, the food was very good, the service was excellent, overall it was great.
Thank you, Harold!
Excellent snapper. Excellent wagyu flank with the carpetbagger on the side.
Another in a series of consistently good meals.
The wagyu flank is new to our menu -- we're glad you enjoyed it, as well as our signature snapper and carpetbagger topping. Thank you so much! We look forward to your next meal with us!
Cold coffee. Slow service. Cold food. Overcooked food. Just can’t eat cold poached eggs.
Won’t be going back until I hear they are better.
I'm very sorry to hear about the issues with your meal! That is definitely outside of the norm for us; we've passed this along to the kitchen as well as our management. We genuinely hope to see you again!
