Everything was great, opted for outdoor dining and traffic noise was intense, will eat indoors next time.

We took my son and his girl friend here last night. First time here. The food is fantastic. The service was good, a couple of mistakes were made but were graciously rectified by our server. The only thing that put a damper on our experience was having reservations for 8:15pm and not being seated till 8:50. Couldn’t even get a seat by the bar, because other customers were clearly waiting for their tables too.
I know people linger at their tables longer then they should, but at these prices they certainly have a right to.

Another fantastic dining experience at Pearl. We started with the octopus, which was tender and full of great flavors of olives, chick peas and romesco sauce and the cauliflower caesar that is a unique twist from the traditional. We continued on to the entree's of halibut and salmon that were perfectly prepared, mouthwatering and bursting with some amazing flavor profiles. Top of the line neighborhood gem that we are so glad is in our backyard.

We all enjoyed the food it was excellent. Halibut, salmon, veal chop, and soft shell crab were excellent.
Tuna tartare was the best appetizer and Panko fried clams as well as octopus.

Food was absolutely wonderful, server extremely knowledgeable and suggested a few items, great choice!

The only issue we had was the valet parking, we had 5pm reservation, we parked our car at the very end of the row by the exit so nothing would happen to it, we were there at the location before the valet company/person. He explained that we had the choice to self park off the premises or valet, but we have been in the parking space for 15 minutes since we arrived early, we opted to stay since we parked already, we hand our key to the valet person. After dinner the parking lot was full and tight and as we approach to the car, we see the car was moved closer to the fence and the nice white Mercedes was super close that I couldn’t open the door fully, my brand new car now had scratches all around the back passenger rim from the curb concrete, as the valet re-adjusted the car, my rims scratched. I was furious! The valet guy didn’t know what to say! I don’t think I will go back because of its parking.

Everything was excellent as usual! Great food, great ambience great service. It was a little annoying they have the manager hovering around to make sure everything was all right. Once would’ve been enough instead of covering.

This was our first time to Pearl. We sat at the bar first and had a cocktail. EXCELLENT bartender and great cocktails. We had a reservation outside and sat in the room out on the sidewalk. Too noisy and too much traffic so ambiance out there is not good…but…our service and food helped make up for the ” deficiency “ in ambiance. The meal was simply as delicious and we will surely be returning to PEARL……and perhaps a high-top bar side table!! Bravo Pearl!

We went to Pearl to celebrate my birthday. I felt like a queen as everyone working there greeted me and wished me a happy birthday. The waiter came over quickly and asked for our drink order and then came back for the dinner order. We didn't feel rushed at all and were there for about 2 hours total which included after dinner drinks and dessert (one the house for the birthday girl). The manager came over more than once to ask us if we were satisfied. The food did not disappoint at all. I had the delicious marinated skirt steak, my husband had the fluke, and my daughter had a salad and Italian meatballs. Everything was delicious from start to finish! Be aware that there is no children's menu if you intend on taking children. I highly recommend Pearl!

The place is nice. Hot bread is the best!!
They said Halibut was their well-known dish but I think the sauce had too much oil, potatoes were soaked with this sauce. Not a fan!
I think I would have preferred just plain halibut.

The apple crisp was good but you can taste lots of butter.

Overall a nice restaurant and we would visit again.

Our waitress was the greatest! She always made sure we had water, made wonderful menu suggestions, and was very kind, professional, and knowledgeable. The seating was perfect, and the host was kind enough to seat us a few minutes behind our reservation, without any issues.
The Prosecco was just what we needed paired with our oyster medley, halibut and salmon. The broccoli rabe was delicious as a side and don’t even ask about dessert!
Dessert was a banage a trois, and the textures and layered flavors were simply divine.
Everything was cooked, plated, and served to perfection.
Also- the manager / owner was kind enough to come say hello and take some extra dishes away. He asked how our experience was and that makes all the difference for first time customers like us! I cannot wait to go back! 💓🍾🙏🏻🎉
