I give this place 5 stars because they do a fantastic job on presentation, on service, on wine selection. They make you feel comfortable and most importantly, I didn't get that ...

no frills affordable decent bar food 2/7/2009

Went to NYC for an audition at ASB on 2/6/09... Guests are not allowed to watch auditions therefore me & friend stepped out for bite to eat. This place is great if you are looking for no frills restaurant that is affordable. Had a $9.00 glass of wine (Chardonnay) (all wines about 8.50-9.00) however the glass was less than half full. However when I mentioned this to my friend within earshot of the bartender the next glass was filled more than halfway. Good bartending in my book. I had the Serloin Burger which was cooked exactly as I ordered & was pretty good (only a burger ...pretty hard to mess up unless served completely raw.) There are 2 entrances however if you go through the wrong door (like we did) the waitress at the Italian restaurant will let you walk through to Peters as both restaurants occupy same space which are not closed off from one another. To sum up: good place to go if you are not looking for anything pricey/trendy & just want to eat & relax with a beer/wine. Pros: affordable & quick Cons: slight bleach smell but at least you know the place has been cleaned more

they make you feel comfortable 11/17/2008

I give this place 5 stars because they do a fantastic job on presentation, on service, on wine selection. They make you feel comfortable and most importantly, I didn't get that ""snootiness"" from anyone that worked there, unlike many of the restaurants in New York and here that I've been to.\r \r It was a great experience, and now I can check it off my list of restaurants to go to... more

Missing Menu Items 10/8/2008

If you go here you will not find a price list for beer or soda. So if you order a Coke, it is a 8 ounce classic bottle, and the cost is $4. That is way to steep. As for no beer price listing, that must be a violation of some SLA rule. The burger was OK. Pros: Close to Lincoln Center Cons: Their menu doesn't tell you what you need to know about beverage costs. more

Good service, minimal beer, watch the wine! 5/16/2008

Watch out, there are two entrances. Make sure you're meeting your pals on the right side: The Bar Entrance or the Restaurant Entrance. We sat at a table in the restaurant. The Maitre d' and server were efficient and accommodating. Not super friendly, but really good at their jobs. The beer list was small, 2 on draft (Bass and something else) and maybe a half dozen bottled beers. An interesting... er... marketing ploy... is that the restaurant sets each table with a bottle of wine. Like it's included. If you open the bottle, they charge you for it. Our bottle of SHAZZ, said on the label AWARD WINNER, BEST WINE UNDER 2000-YEN (about $18). Mike asked the waitress how much it would be if we opened the bottle. ""Forty dollars,"" she said. --Drink Club NYC is a roving group of NYC drinkers\r Pros: accommodating staff, table AND bar service Cons: over-priced but tempting wine more

Fantastic food 1/24/2008

We were looking for a reasonably priced spot in which to ""grab a bite"" before heading up to Lincoln Center. Saw Peter's on line and we gave it a try. We were so delighted with the warm, cozy atmosphere, the friendly wait staff and the menu. Tasty wine selection, and fairly wide menu choices were found. The best thing was the pre-fixed menu! I had the chicken with sun dried tomatoes and goat cheese which was mouth wateringly delicious. The salad, bread and dessert were also fantastic. All around a great spot! We would definitely return! more

HORRIBLE service, subpar food 10/27/2007

My friends and I went to Peter's on a Friday night. There was no wait, several open tables. The man at the door told us he could seat us at a table if we were in and out in an hour because he had that table reserved. We said no problem. \r Our waitress was rude from the start. She came over and simply said, with no greeting or no ask of drink orders, ""Are you ready?"" We were just sat at the table so we requested a few more minutes and she ran off before I could put in a drink order even.\r It was a cold rainy night, soup sounded good so three of us got soup and one of us got an entree. Seconds after placing our order, our waitress apparently ran over to the man at the door to complain about our soup orders (note: we never stated this was our whole meal order, and she didnt even ask). The man at the door (I assume the manager) came over and began YELLING at us, saying we were being unfair by just getting soup. Asking us who would do that and why would we come in here if we just wanted appetizers? He ranted for several minutes, then left without even allowing us to respond to his rudeness. Well, after that we definitely were not going to stay for drinks or dessert. It made things very awkward and uncomfortable for the rest of the dinner. The waitress never even came back to our table, except to drop the check. \r The food was nothing stellar for any of us. The restaurant never filled up in the hour we were there. Isn't it better to be making SOME money than to have an empty table? \r \r I have never been treated so poorly in a restaurant in my life. I am generally easy going and forgiving for poor service, but I will NEVER return there. And would never recommend someone else to go there either to support such a place. Cons: Horrible service, rude wait staff and management more

A safe bet that's not too pricey. 3/30/2007

For this neighborhood, Peter's is is pretty good and prices are especially reasonable. If you're looking for a quick bite before heading off to Lincoln Center, and are not looking to drop a ton of money, this is a good bet. Linguini with pesto was delish, daily specials such as risotto are often really good as well. The only downside is the nearby bar, which can spill over into the dining room and get REALLY loud. But the waitstaff is casual, nice enough. Not a glowing recommendation to be sure, but there really aren't very many GOOD inexpensive restaurants around here. It's a safe bet. Pros: Above-average food at reasonable prices Cons: Can get really loud on a Friday night. more

Good Service & Tasty Pasta 9/14/2006

My teenaged daughter and I decided to try Peter's after looking over their eclectic menu. To accommodate my personal preferences, the waiter helped me customize a pasta dish from what was on the menu. He was very pleasant, prompt and professional. My daughter had the tricolored rotini in pesto sauce and she loved it...I did too...very tasty! I had tortellini in a white cream sauce, which was also good, but I had my eye on the juicy looking burger that another patron at the next table was having, and I wish I had tried that instead. We also shared a Caesar salad that was fairly portioned and delicious.\r \r I had a little difficulty with the temperature in the dining room, as the overhead fans were running full speed and the glass doors were fully opened on a very cool evening. A manager offered to move us to another table that might be more comfortable, but unfortunately this helped us only a little.\r \r I have to agree with another reviewer that the beverages are overpriced; my daughter's Coke was a tiny 8 oz. vintage bottle, (we laughed when we saw it), and the coffee was also overpriced. However, I thought the entrees were reasonably priced and the portions were hearty.\r \r Overall, I would recommend Peter's. The food, casual decor, and service were all very good. My daughter, who attends school nearby, plans on making Peter's her local eatery for our future outings. Pros: friendly staff, reasonably priced, tasty food Cons: overpriced & undersized beverages more

DON""T GO TO THE BAR 6/2/2006

Horribly rude bar tender with a major attitude. Staff along with manager were extremely nasty. Bar tender was very discourteous tos ay the least. more

good food---toooooo much noise! 8/3/2005

All was great except couldn't hear any conversation in the dinning room. Bar noise filters into the room. Almost seems like it's piped in. Would be much better if there was a better separation. They probably would have more people too. Tuna steak and burgers were great. But the noise was tooooooo overwheming. Great for people who are totally deaf!!!!!!!!!! Pros: food, service, good drinks Cons: noise , more noise, lots of noise more

Maybe Just for Drinks... 1/13/2005

I ate some Pasta at Peter's a couple of years ago and it was great, so I recently thought I would go back. The food was okay, but grossly overpriced. The ambience is still really lovely but the place is just SO loud! Peter's has a popular bar scene that over-flows into the dining room. It was literally impossible to even talk. Pros: Atmosphere, Bar Scene Cons: , LOUD, expensive! more

disappointed 10/29/2002

ate at this place with a date one recent saturday evening and both meals were below par. my crab cakes were overwhelmingly oily (deep fried?) and my date's penne was nothing better than i could have cooked at home. wait staff was excellent, but that can't overcome a waste of $65. Pros: great wait staff Cons: food, loud more

Burgers and Beer 9/29/2002

Went there on a Sat. night after and liked the ambiance. Wasn't there for dinner, but me and my friends had pub fare (burgers and cheesesteak) and it was prepared very well. I liked the fact that the menu is diverse and it had a nice crowd. more

Nice lunch spot! 9/9/2002

I go here for some classic dishes. Great ambiance, but the service is just alright. Don't try the pea soup, it is watery. Pros: ambiance, location, food Cons: service more

a real review 7/1/2002

Brunch was better than expected given the yuppified locale. Stick with the basics and you can't go wrong. (What's stir-fried chicken doing on the menu anyway?) The same can not be said for the exhorbitant $3 for a soda. When will restaurants realize that it's the little things that count and that overt price gouging is the #1 way to turn off potentially loyal customers? more
