Great service and great food. Waitress was very familiar with menu and food and was able to suggest choices.
Owner accommodated us for dinner at a reserved table so we could make showtime at local theater.

It was good to find Pera on Spring Street this summer during our 2014 treks to the Williamstown Theatre Festival. Were so pleased we came twice and brought guests with us the second time; they were thoroughly satisfied as well. There's a step up from the sidewalk, where table are available for outdoor service (personally, I never understood why people want to eat next to a parked car, or moving ones for that matter, but, hey, whatever) The inside is spare, and relatively small, but very comfortable, with banquette seating, regular tables, and a couple high tops next to the windows. It looks at first as if noise would be a problem, but not so. Local artists are on display.Don't count on sitting at the bar, though; it's in a corner near the kitchen in the back, and has only 4 stools. The dishes are familiar yet prepared creatively, with fresh ingredients, and nicely presented. Servers were knowledgeable about the menu and helpful in making choices. Wine selections are reasonably priced. We have had the appetizer platter (as an entree it is a more than satisfying summertime choice), the stuffed scallops (rich and well-balanced with spices, the lamb burger (very juicy and very good, although it could stand to be presented with a few accompaniments since it looked somewhat lonely on the plate). Our friends shared the kabobs for two and said it was very good--the lamb portion tender, the chicken one not at all dry, and the spicing not too much for their palates.Entrees are accompanied by a choice of starches or the house salad, which I think is excellent. The owner was there both times, making sure his customers were treated well. I hope he makes a go of this restaurant because it's good. We'll be back

We were pleased to find this cozy restaurant after a visit to The Clark, and delighted with our meal. The red lentil soup was tasty, followed by their "Blue BLT", which is a salad rather than sandwich, and wonderful with the shrimp that I chose to add. Mrs. Gyr gave an A+ grade to the Mulligatawny soup. Pera Is a Williamstown delight, and we plan to return!

Had lamb kabobs and hummus/tabbouleh plate. Both were wonderful. Restaurant is small. The service was excellent. Will return the next time we are in Williamstown.

In a modest storefront on Spring Street, the staff of Pera deliver quality, comfortable & tasty fare at fair prices with grace & friendliness. A joy to dine here and enjoy the great, creative & unpretentious cuisine.
I've been to Pera twice and easily recommend it to all. Every thing we have tried was satisfying; the service was great & the owner - when he's not mopping the floor or fixing a light bulb (!!!) - is a charmer.
