Food was excellent, service was great and the remodel is a much better atmosphere than before. Lobster and seafood melt was the best.

Whether eating in or ordering catering for a business lunch, the food never disappoints! If going for lunch, get there early or be prepared to wait... They don't take reservations, and they are really busy!

Went on TripAdvisor reviews when we were visiting the capitol building and was not disappointed. The gluten free penne pasta ham, peas and four cheese sauce was flavorful, all ingredients fresh/tasty and large portion. A very delightful late lunch that exceeded our expectations! Will recommend without hesitation!

I have eaten at the Wild Pear twice now, during conferences, both times I was very pleased. I love the selection, there are a variety of foods which helps when everyone in the group wants different types of food. The staff are always very friendly, and attentive to the point of asking if you are on a time frame.

This is a local favorite and a must if looking for an excellent restaurant for lunch. The butternut squash curry soup is our favorite. Everything we've ordered has always been fresh and delicious. Don't go if you're in a hurry. The food and atmosphere deserve that you are relaxed and focused, so you can take it all in. Also, there... More

The food here is wonderful. The location is traditional. The atmosphere is lively. The lunch trade is brisk. Patrons are loyal and confident that they will enjoy a great meal. Therefore, the establishment is highly valued by the community. However, the noise level, the see-and-be seen vibe, and pitch and energy of the crowd tends to discourage those who seek... More

The restaurant is small so it's important to arrive early with your entire party to secure a seat as they won't seat you until everyone has arrived. The food is rich and very flavorful. Prices are on the higher size of lunch places however very well worth the money.
