I was fortunate enough to win a gift certificate to this lovely restaurant at a charity event. I went for dinner with a friend on a Sunday. The restaurant is charming, very tastefully decorated. The menu had a lot of delicious choices so I asked our server for a suggestion. He asked what I like and I told him Shrimp,... More

Enjoy the food and atmoshere. It is a little bit more cost than your average Asian cuisine but it is so much better than that.

We had visited Peninsula several times over the years and it was an average Chinese restaurant. The last time we had been here was a disaster. Read my previous review on this restaurant. Recently stopped by for dinner the first time visiting with the new owners. We were greeted very nicely and seated immediately, staff was extremely friendly, informative. Service... More

My wife and I had been searching for a good Asian restaurant in our area and The Peninsula was recommended to us. We were pleasantly surprised! The interior if the restaurant looked more upscale the the neighborhood it was in would have suggested. Seating was comfortable and spacious. Walked in without reservations and were seated promptly. In my opinion the... More

My friend suggested Peninsula Restaurant for lunch. It was my first time visiting here. Upon entering you are immediately hit with huge koi ponds on either side while crossing over a bridge. The rest of the decor was pleasant and clean. Other guests remarked they had to wait to be seated but maybe since it was an early lunch we... More

We go there at least once a year and have never had a bad night. The place is fairly large and they tend to spread out the diners, so it is nice and quiet and you can have an enjoyable conversation. The decor is nice a couple of large fish tanks and a pond with a bridge that you cross... More

First impression is the eclectic decor. Every genre seems to struggle with each other, however if your into aquariums and pond fish, you will love the huge twin 500 gallon tanks and the bridge over the pond of kois. As far as the food, the menu was too expansive encompassing many choices of Chinese, Japanese, and Thai. I prefer restaurants... More

Reservation for 7:30, we arrived 7:30 and by 8:15 still ahd no food. When it came, it was clear the chef had delusions of mediocrity. Save yourself- go anyplace else.
