Amazing Food

I wasn't sure what to expect when I saw the outside, as this is in a strip mall, but was pleasantly surprised upon entering. It is very chic yet comfortable. The food is amazing-from the appetizers to the desserts (you have to try the Pain Perdu!). The drinks are also fabulous! I lived in NYC... read more

My wife and I wanted to grab a light supper as we were passing through Peterborough and chose the Pearl Restaurant at random. Even though its was on the early side (5:30pm), there was already a number of people there--always a good sign. We split a plate of oysters (you have a choice of 5 different varieties) and a sashimi... More

First time eating at Pearl, and it was totally worth venturing out in the snow storm. The atmosphere is great. Was nervous that the tables seemed close together at first, but the music and sounds of the kitchen, basically right behind the bar (which I like), make it so you can still carry on a private conversation. We heard that... More

Friends took us to this wonderful little restaurant in a strip mall in Peterborough, NH. What a pleasant surprise - although it isn't much on atmosphere it makes up with great food and perfect service. Everyone had something different - I tried the Vietnamese egg roll Nams -(excellent - crisp and very tasty) followed up with Crazy Chicken ( add... More

Everything ordered was top notch! Loved the ribs appetizer and the tuna sashimi. The entrees were also consistently delicious. Staff was friendly and we had a lovely evening. By far the best restaurant in Peterborough. Will absolutely come back

The Pearl is a jewel. (Sorry, couldn't resist.) We have visited twice and have been satisfied each time. The restaurant sits at the end of a strip mall near the intersection of 202 and 101 not far from "downtown" Peterborough. It is a long, narrow room, bar and kitchen on the left, tables against the opposite wall on the right.... More

We decided to try Pearl again with our dinner buddies. It was four of us and thank god we called the day before for the table for 4 by the window at the front of the restaurant. First the space is like a tunnel and if you have a party of 4 more it will be very cramped unless you... More

My husband and I went for the first time after hearing it was good. For our appetizer we got the crab cakes. there were 3 small ones with a lovely dish of sauce. incredibly light, sweet, and delicious. For our entrees, I had the lemon grass chicken and he had Crazy chicken. My dish was absolutely mouth watering with multiple... More
