Good food and atmosphere. Service was good. The bar has a great layout. Music needs to be a bit louder.
Four of us had dinner at Pearl. It was busy on a Saturday evening, and reservations are recommended. Pearl serves Italian and bistro food, pastas, pizzas, salads, meat and fish entrees. Two in our group had the Tofu Stir Fry, another the Steak salad, and I had the Free Range Chicken Breast with risotto. All of us enjoyed our meal.... More
Food has always been EXCELLENT... had slow service over lunch which appeared to be because of not enough staff. Our server appeared to be waiting on the entire dining room.

I think our food could have been more timely served and it was... More
Beyond horrible service. Waited 10 minutes to even be acknowledge then sat. We were never greeted at our table. We were never offered drinks or food. Waited over 30 minutes & walked out. Heard many people complaining on the wait for their food. Go some place else. The good reviews on this must be from management. Horrible horrible business.
One of the best if not THE best in Rockford. I would rank it in the handful of places in Rockford that I would go to bring important clientele, to celebrate a special occasion, or just to hang out or have a great dinner in a great atmosphere. Food was excellent, offering something different as well as classic and done... More
