Great place. The perfect place for a romantic dinner. My best friend and I had at 8:30 reservation, we were seated promptly. We love the ambience and we will return with our respective couples :-)

I absolutely loved the views at the Perla. Inside you felt as though you were truly in a clam shell. The lighting as dusk arrived, was unique to emulate the colours of the inside of the Clamshell. Then the view to the ocean was amazing through the floor to ceiling windows. Also... something that I found interesting was that our... More

My wife and I dined at Perla on 4/3/14. We had 6:30 reservations and were promptly seated on our arrival. The design of the dining room is striking in its resemblance of a giant clam shell. There are also some very tasteful hand blown glass lamps throughout the room. Our waiter was Miguel. He was pleasant and jovial. He was... More

The executive chef Lindell Smith surprised us with an amazing 7 course chefs tasting with wine pairings. Everything was perfect and presented beautifully. The staff was so attentive. Never was a glass half empty and all if the courses were perfectly timed. We had a drink at the bar before we sat down for dinner and the cocktails and bartenders... More

The clam shell look was pretty cool especially the reflection in the rooftop water outside. Food was really good, service was good too.

I had planned to ask my fiance to marry me at Perla. I ignored the bad reviews and came here anyway. Our experience made my plans change which I am thankfull for as I ended up asking her under the stars on the beach and it was perfect. We felt rushed eating here even though there were only 5 other... More

I want to start by saying that the overall experience at Perla was quite good. The ambiance was great, cool view / feel. We had two bottles of wine both priced around $40 which were great. The only knock was that I'd say the food ranged from only solid to good . Our group had a couple of apps -... More

Perla is extremely expensive and the service is very good. The food is also very high quality and "fine" dining however it is not the place to get authentic Puerto Rican cuisine. Living in Philadelphia we could get the items on the menu here almost anywhere.
