“Great restaurant, great food, great staff, great service!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2015 NEW

Peli Peli exceeded all expectations! Without a doubt, one of the best experiences dining out. I travelled with six friends from Canada and we decided to visit Peli Peli during our first night in Houston. Huge shout out to Lindsey and Thomas, who were outstanding (polite, professional, personable and knowledgeable). The food was incredible, with plenty of menu options from which to choose (the group ordered several different dishes, and each person thoroughly enjoyed his/her meal). Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in or visiting the Houston area. Will definitely be back!!

“Wonderful food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2015 NEW

I have been here before and loved it each and every single time. This particular time I came with my sister-in-law for a better-late-than-never mother's day lunch. Our server, Phong, was delightful! He was super knowledgeable about the menu items, and even hit the nail on the head by suggesting a Peli Peli Bellini when we asked for a slightly fruity drink. Everything was amazing as always, and I will definitely continue to keep coming back.

“Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2015 NEW

Peli Peli's #1 rating is well deserved. I ate lunch at the Vintage Park location with two friends on our annual girls' trip. The ambiance was wonderful and our food was delicious! You must try the Huguenot filet--the favorite at our table--and for dessert the sticky toffee pudding is a must! Our waiter, Rosendo, was very knowledgable about the restaurant's history and the menu items, and his recommendations were top notch. He was friendly and helpful, showing up at just the right times to check on us. We appreciated the whole staff making this such a special experience.
