Recently had dinner there with my wife. Hadn't been in years. Our waitress was very good. The food was not. Appetizer (spinach appetizer dish) was average at best. Entree's were also average. Restaurant was not that busy and it took 30 minutes for them to deliver the special of the evening and my wife's entree. Quite a dissappointment vs. previous... More

We were a party of eight arriving just after the lunch hour. Started with the Blue Moon tortilla appetizer. Great! Each one of us ordered something different and all were happy with their choice. Soup is also great. Staff members are eager to please. We all agreed to return in the future. Hidden gem.

My spouse and I have been regulars at Pearl for a couple of years now. Thanks to their pizza guy the food has been great each and every time. Not sure if he left along with all the others that have been leaving, but the food was terrible. Will not return for a while

Within the past 6 months, Pearl changed its menu and is now more Mediterranean. The pesto ravioli is particularly good paired with the white wine sauce rather than the red sauce on the menu. Everything we've tried is good - pizza, burger, soups, salad, appetizers. The servings are generously sized. Mark is a fantastic server! He goes out of his... More

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. Not good when going there for a business lunch.... I'd go back to give it a try at lunch, but would be cautious if going over a work lunch hour....... More

This a a great place to meet your girlfriends for lunch or for a nice date with your husband. Nice decor and the food is tasty. Sometimes we have had to wait for our food but that has not happened often.

I went for drinks with friends. Great atmosphere. And although the sound level was there, I could converse with ease with my friends. The drinks were good and service was good.

I took my daughters out for a nice lunch. All our food was delicious. We had Hot Spinach and Artichoke fondue, Eggs Benedict, Chicken breast panini, beer battered fish, and Vegetarian Stir Fry. Everyone loved their meal. Part of the reason I wanted to write the review is because they offer several vegetarian options, which is rare to find. My... More
