Delicious, unique South American cuisine

This is a very good place for a delicious meal that is not the usual boring fare. The meals are authentic South American dishes that feature fresh fish, jicama, fried plantain. Prices are moderate, the servings generous and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Service is good and the space is well... read more

The restaurant has this great tropical atmosphere and although the menu isn't huge, everything on it is amazing. My favorite is the Buenos Tiempos (braised beef short ribs), that literally melt in your mouth. :)

Atmosphere was ok - food was overpriced and again, just ok. Margarita was good but small. Won't go back.

Good was fantastic and the atmosphere is one of a kind. Highly recommended for a romantic special occasion as the prices are pretty high but definitely worth it for a once in a while celebration. Drinks are very tasty as well!!

Lunch was spicy leek soup which was divine. Lunch special was pork milanese with sweet peppers and then their signature rice and black beans, fried yucca with an delicious herb butter. We were their first customers on Thursday and by the time we left the place the place was packed. Both young career people and retirees. Looking forward to coming... More

La Casa De Pedro is a great place to eat. The food is good (especially like the roasted chicken). It isn't overly fancy, but just good food. The drinks are fun. The atmosphere is even better. Inside the restaurant feels like a evening outside at a South American tropical resort. We go many times in the worst part of winter... More

Lively fun place for drinks and hanging out with friends. The bard food and snacks are quite tasty BUt the regular meals are only so so. Too greasy, not enough depth of flavor. For an after work place with friends it is fine but not my choice for real food.

Once upon a time, before they moved to their current location, they food was hand prepared in the restaurant, very true to Venezuelan Food... now.. not so much.. Many of their dishes are smaller portions and most apps are pre-frozen - taken out of a bag and microwaved to perfection... its not cheap either.. usually would drop $100 dinner for... More

Casa de Pedro's is the place to go if you are looking for excellent Venezuelan food. It is also a fun atmosphere for large groups. I took my whole team here for an end of the year lunch and everyone found something they liked. The steak with two eggs on top is a lunch of champions! This time of year... More
