Went for a business lunch with a group of six. Food was above average. My grilled octopus appetizer was delicious and the levantine seafood cake was decent, if a bit pricey for what i got. The beets on the base were the best part. While...not mediterranean, the folks who got the burger and fries raved about them. I snuck a fry and it was very good. Service was attentive and friendly. I would return.More

We dined here tonight as a party of four and while I dropped ~$300 it was a three course meal. Service by Dar-- was outstanding through out the night. The kitchen helped her by being timely with every course. Appetizers were Hummus and Calamari, both...were outstanding, but I believe the Calamari may have been the best Calamari appetizer I've every had. Our mains were Gnocchi, Chicken Shashlik, Lamb Adana and I had the special of the night- Lamb Chops. All of the dishes were quite nice but the two Lamb dishes were outstanding. Deserts were Rice Pudding, Baklava, Sorbet and Chocolate Souffle and all four were quickly consumed. We'll eat here next time we are back in NYC.More

We went before A Strange Loop, it's maybe a ten minute walk to the Lyceum Theater. We sat outside on the tented patio. We had a couple vegans with us and they were thrilled with the cuisine. We started with the Dip Trio and the...Fried Artichokes. I tried the seafood cake and liked it. Good for pre theater if you are on the east side of Broadway, or good for a pre train ride dinner out of Grand Central.More

Pera offers a very good Turkish-ish dining experience. We had the mezze platter, salad, lamb and chicken with Turkish wine. Everything we had was tasty and portions were ample. Despite being a very very busy evening, service was friendly and efficient.

Ambience was poor on the Saturday night we visited, almost empty. Food was average and reasonably priced. Staff attentive but almost over zealous, trying to take plates away when not yet finished. Would not rush back.

This is an excellent Turkish restaurant in Midtown. The food is excellent: I had the vegetable timbale and the dip trio, and both were quite good. Service was friendly.

We found ourselves at Pera because of a rain storm, but it was a lucky find. Nice place. Great atmosphere and very good food. The Chicken "Shashlik" was excellent.

I've eaten at this lovely restaurant a couple of times with family and have thoroughly enjoyed it every time. We generally order a few things and share, which is the best way to go because everything is so good that we want to try everything....Their grape leaves, grilled artichokes, and phyllo rolls are all great, as is their lamb Adana and their gnocchi. Prompt, friendly waitstaff and a mellow ambiance. This restaurant is conveniently located near Grand Central Station, which is handy for people coming into the city.More

It’s been ages since I’ve been to Pera. I walk past it twice a day several time a week and think fondly of the lovely lunches and dinners I’ve had there over the years. Last evening’s dinner falls right into place in that catalog of...fond memories. We lingered over our aperitifs, looking at the menu and catching up. Our waiter was handsome and pleasant. The restaurant was not crowded or noisy. It gets no better than that. For her first course, my friend ordered the Mediterranean Salad; cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and Kalamata olives, beautifully presented, with a large block of creamy sheeps’ milk feta cheese on top. I ordered the watermelon feta salad, here served with a basil dressing. Squares of watermelon and feta are arranged in a geometric shape, the bright green dressing complementing the red and white of the salad. It was as pleasing to the eye as it was to the palate. For her main course, my friend chose the lamb chops; 5 little lamb chops, perfectly cooked, and served with roasted fingerling potatoes and bright red piquillo peppers. She shared a lamb chop with me; it was divine. And I shared my Signature Lamb Adana with her, a wonderful combination of ground lamb and spices. The sides of bulgur pilaf and pickled vegetables were nice, but the tasty lamb was my main focus and I finished it. We lingered for nearly two hours; another lovely dinner at Pera to contemplate the next time I walk past.More

My sister and I had dinner here after spending a full day in the city. We were looking for a restaurant before heading home by train from Grand Central. We attended a Broadway matinee and made our way to Pera, which was a relatively short...walk. It’s located on Madison between 41 & 42 streets, so if you’re coming from 5th, be sure to walk down 41st, known as Library Way, and enjoy the quotes on the sidewalk plaques. The restaurant is average size, the service was wonderful, and the food was excellent. We each had different options on the Sunday Supper menu, which was a good value. For the appetizer, the trio of dips, yogurt, hummus, and eggplant was better than the salad, which was a little heavy on the cucumbers for my taste. The salmon served on a bed of greens, beluga lentils, and quinoa was superb. The lamb chops were very tender and cooked just the way I ordered them. The baklava bites for dessert were just enough after a large meal. My only complaints were that there was no toilet tissue in the ladies room when we arrived, which was quickly rectified, and the restaurant was dark. I had to bring the menu to the bar area to read it, as there was not a light over our table. All in all, I highly recommend this restaurant, located a few steps from Grand Central.More
