While Pera Soho is a beautiful space, the service was subpar. Our reservation was for 12:30pm and we did not get a table until 1pm. Food was average at best and the Bloody Mary was salty.

I had been here years ago and ate inside which is nothing special. Service was bad then. The place still needs a makeover inside. LOL.

I only went here b/c everything else was booked on a Friday.
Went here durign out COVID out door dining days. Would not seat me until my friend arrived. WEIRD. Staff got mad at me because i lowered my mask a bit. WTF! Nobody is wearing a mask inside the outdoor eating space!!! Cocktails taste like a high school kid made them. LOL Wine list was so small they didnt have most wines and what they did have was horrible overpriced american shi!t wine. Food is far from just about every other restaurant in Soho. All this to say this is why i don't come here.

Lucky to snag a seat in the garden area as the sidewalk in a thirsty Thursday was jammed with people wiring to get a table. Service was excellent but food a disappointment was a disappointment especially for the price. Definitely make a reservation and expect a possible 30+wait.

The food and ambiance was great. The service was horrible. Even though we had reservations, the host didn’t seem to notice us. Then when another host sat us, no one came to serve us. After about 15 minutes, we asked one waiter for help who said he would send our waiter. Then we had to ask two more waiters for assistance until our order was taken. Although we ordered drinks, they were not served until after our appetizer was brought to the table and only after we asked about them. The waiter also told us we could not order appetizers first. We had to order appetizers and entrees together.

The food was less than mediocre... meats were grilled nicely but everything else was lacking flavor. The chicken dish came with cold bland bulgur and the an arugula “salad” that was dry and without dressing.

Host made us wait 45 minutes to get seated. Waiters didn’t take our order until 25 minutes after getting seated. Waiters did not respect allergies and almost got one customer sick after not understanding dairy allergy. Drink orders were mixed up.

Amateur performance from staff at a supposedly a nice restaurant.

Ambiance is nice, food is solid

Ill start with the good: Ambiance was wonderful.
But the food was simply mediocre at best. Felt like what you would get at Chile's or something like that. I went there genuinely wanting to like it but just didn't come away enjoying.
Service was also just "OK", our cocktails came out when we were more than halfway through dinner, even though was ordered before the food. Price was reasonable, particularly for the area.

Courtyard is such a fabulous setting, you could be anywhere in the world.
Food was delicious, our only complaint would have been that there was a mix up with our waiters when we first came in & it took a long time to get our drinks order to the table.
But we had a great experience overall & we will 100% come back.

Nice ambience, good vibe. However, brunch food was average. Ruined the Benedicts and beef burger was average.

Service was sub par. Told the guy to make the yolks not runny, he said we can only do full we can’t do medium (maybe he didn’t know that’s quite easy to do). When he brought the eggs, it literally looked like there was a pita bread was on top of it. I called him and said this is too hard, even though he is the one who said this is what we can do, he said you got exactly what you asked for in a very dismissive tone. Not cool!

Waited quite long for food to arrive. Food was decent but having to pay for simple things such as bacon seems excessive. Overall, good food but very long wait times.

We had a reservation for 8 pm. We weren’t seated until 830 and weren’t seen by a server until 845. I was embarrassed that I chose this restaurant in front of my guests. Horrible experience and no one particularly enjoyed their food either. The frustration of trying to get seated (despite having a reservation) and trying to get the attention of the staff truly put a damper on our experience. Would not recommend.

The octopus and artichoke appetizers were good, but our entrees were not! Now more than even NY needs to be cared for! When dining out it should be above our expectations! We ordered the country salad and it’s was half a cucumber and tomato with some grilled shrimp. It was not good and we went next door to Pi after to get Spanakopita because we were hungry! So many better options
