I've been four times (all at lunch) and I don't know why this place isn't busier. It's really good. I ordered from the lunch specials menu and if I cleaned my plate I would have been really full. To go boxes for a leftover kabob- my kind of pre-dinner nibble! It's all yummy- the dolmas, the falafel, the lamb. Maybe because there's so much good food on Potrero Hill, this place suffers because it comes across as more formal? The space is large and peaceful and service is always attentive.

We went to Pera with a party of four. We were seated right away. The decor was nice, and the service was good. The food, however, was mediocre. For example, we had a spanakopita appetizer, and the portions were miniscule. Then three of us had the Moussaka entree. Unfortunately, the Moussaka was made with potatoes. Now, I like Moussaka, and I like potatoes -- but I have never had both in the same dish, and I did not care for the combination. And neither did the others in my party who ordered it. So I can't really recommend Pera.

We met a local friend here for dinner on his suggestion & truly enjoyed the experience. We started with a sampler platter that had some items that were different & great. Much of the menu has some choices that are not at every restaurant- nice! We all enjoyed our meals & the wine too! The atmosphere is casual & decor was tasteful. Great choice for something different if you are in the area.

I was here with a group of colleagues for a holiday lunch and everything was superb!! It is a great place to go with a group of people as you can order a little bit of everything and try it all. I have also been for dinner and have loved it.

The people who work there could not be nicer - the restaurant is in a neighborhood with some "destination" restaurants - I cannot figure out why people wait in line for a lunch counter next door when there is space at Pera.

For a special treat - the Greek yogurt dessert - with drizzled honey, strawberries, blueberries and nuts is to die for!
