The location is significantly improve since they relocated. The service was exemplary. The food was excellent. We brought to their attention that the overhead fan was potentially over cooling our meals they immediately reduced the fan speed. In future visits I would reserve for a little later so that we could eat on the patio. The acoustics inside could be... More

Cracked Pepper is a great surprise. Delicious food, friendly service, a nice atmosphere. Don't miss the Eggplant Napoleon, a Cracked Pepper specialty. If you're unsure, order one for the table and let everyone have a bite or 2. All the food is beautifully served and the wait staff is great. At the end of the meal, order the bread pudding.... More

How often does this happen in a restaurant? Not often but this time was a charm. We had not dined here in a long time and decided to try the new location.

We tried these first as an appetizer and loved them so much we went back to have them as a dinner entree on a night that we wanted a light dinner. They did not disappoint! Mussels, bread and dessert...it was fabulous and the service was attentive and friendly.

Went here for a friends birthday. We shared an appetizer and salad, then each had our own entree. The food was marvelous and the service was great. Highly recommend! The bread pudding is out of this world! Hmmmmm

A place to take out of town guest that you want to impress. We've been many times either for dinner or just for wine and dessert. Service is excellent and friendly. Regular menu and specials always present difficulties in choosing. There's often enough to take home (and we wouldn't want to leave a crumb). The eggplant tower is amazing.
