Lives up to the hype

We had a great dinner here. The atmosphere is rustic and relaxed. The food was delicious. We shared an arugula salad to start - even my husband, who normally doesn't love salads, thought it was light and delicious. He had the gnudi as an entree and loved it. I had the steak and it was so so so... read more

I am not sure how this restaurant got all the great reviews and ratings in the national media. It looks trendy, yes. The bar area is interesting, if a bit confusing. The drinks are good but at Manhattan prices, I expect Manhattan quality and they were close. But the food leaves a lot to be desired. Of all the dishes,... More

The menu was limited and a bit expensive for the area but the food was great. Service was very slow but it may have been because it was a full house when we dined. The food though more than made up for the long wait.

Why a great surprise the first time we visited! We make it a point to stop in every time we get up to the Catskills now, every dish is simply delicious- even the burgers are super yummy. Fresh seasonal ingredients and attentive service from the owner. An impressive wine list to pair with the dishes. Outstanding service. Not what you'd... More

This place is ridiculously good! From the outside it looks like a hut that tends to fall. You would not expect a big restaurant with a romantic ambiance inside. The food here is not cheap, it has NYC prices. However the food is probably better than most of the snooty NYC restaurants. Everything we ordered was nothing short of exquisite.... More

Service was TOP notch. Ambiance was top notch. The insides of this place are huge; not obvious from the road. We arrived to see many cars in the lot but we had plenty of room to eat and it was not noisy. Great atmosphere. I had the chicken special, which came with bones and I did not like it. (I... More

Well, we do appreciate your use of the phrase "Top Notch" (twice!)- which perhaps would have been a more suitable title for your review. We work very hard to train our service staff and we're glad that it shows by how well you were cared for during your visit. With regard to your concern of our Oven Roasted Chicken -... More

My wife and I arrived in the area late and were only looking for a decent meal. Trip advisor lead us to peekamoose where we had an unexpectedly great meal. The price was a bit high for what we sought but hey we were starting a vacation. The food was comparable to the price and overall experience also high quality

I was dining on the porch with my friends who were treating us to dinner and in the middle of our meal three people, a baby and two other children were seated next to us. The man holding the baby proceeded to change it's dirty poop diaper right there at the table for us to smell with our meal. The... More

I completely agree that it is inappropriate to change a diaper at a table in a restaurant, however, your review leaves out many of the most revolting facts of the evening and I'd like to make sure that everyone reading this understands what truly happened on the evening of May 24th. Although I did not witness the diaper change at... More

Every meal here has been amazingly well prepared. The staff are very friendly. When I eat here I sometimes feel like I'm at my moms house. Everyone is very friendly the food is great. And the atmosphere is highly enjoyable. The owners obviously know what they are doing and it shows.

Ate at Peekamoose for the first time last Friday evening. The menu offered good variety but was not overwhelming. The staff was attentive and friendly. Overall, it was a very good meal, service was perfect and the price was reasonable. Highly recommend if you are in the area and want a good, solid meal.
