Great food, didn't like the atmosphere for a EAT in restaurant but it would do for takeout... location is ideal on the Main Street of route 59. Love the staff they were helpful

I have eaten many times in Purple Pear. When they first opened, they worked harder to please and the ambience was exceptional. Over the years the service has deteriorated and the food is outdated. They are overpriced and the food is underwhelming. It's very disappointing and I don't think I will give it another chance. These days there are other... More

Located in the heart of Monsey NY, a newly designed parking lot makes the parking near the restaurant much more convenient than it was before. The choice of the diary menu is quite extensive, tasty and presented nicely, which is a positive atribute for both business lunches as well as family meals. Good choice all around.

Jacob Wagschal Review: The Purple Pear is a staple in the Monsey, NY community. If you are looking for a great kosher meal, then The Purple Pear has to be on your list. The restaurant is clean and the staff is personable. Taco Salad is awesome! All of their salads are incredibly fresh and the only thing better than the... More

Food is really delicious. Order and then sit down with buzzer which lets you know when food is ready. Only problem is food doesn't all come out at same time...

I used to really enjoy purple pear whenever in monsey. However, the last few times I have been there, the food has not been up to the standards they usually have been at. Something is different. Whether it's the chef or manager, someone is letting things slide.

You go up and order so not formal service and you get a bell that rings when your order is ready. :)

I enjoyed breakfast here with my wife and friends. The breakfast special was a delicious omelet served with salad. I decline the fries and bread. It was delicious and we all enjoyed. Service was fast. I love the cool notification system for when the food is ready.

While passing through Monsey a friend and I stopped at the Purple Pear to eat supper. What a surprise. It is an upscale dairy/fish restaurant with a wide selection of fish, pasta an sushi dishes. They also have amazing deserts and sandwiches. What we liked the most about this restaurant aside from the quality of the food, was the prompt... More
