A Must!!

Without a doubt, the best restaurant in the area. It's always a stop when I'm in town. Become a regular and they'll treat you like part of the family. Shout out to Regina...and Cody.

We popped in here only because we were in the office park next door. It looks exactly like a real French bistro. Only missing the old men smoking over their newspapers... Now, I have traveled all over the world and have a pretty decent palate. .. We ordered something simple: french onion soup and Caesar salads. The soup is literally... More

A wonderful experience from the moment we stepped in the door to when we left. The staff was very attentive, friendly and detailed. In my opinion, they have the best restaurant staff in Hampton Roads. We went for restaurant week and we were impressed. Our favorite dishes of the evening were the Seafood Trio (Salmon, delicious marinated shrimp, and an... More

Pearl was our second choice of restaurant to go to prior to a concert in Newport News. So glad we went with our second choice because it was SO good. Simple décor, lots of windows, double white tablecloths, a fresh rose on the table. Had an excellent meal - tuna and salmon - with escargot and a leaf salad to... More

My husband and I were staying at the Marriott at Oyster Pointe and discovered Pearl on-line. It's an easy 10 minute walk from the Marriott just off the City Center so if you're staying at that location you really can walk. We were greeted warmly by the Manager and Bethany was a friendly, professional server. I really wanted escargot but... More

The food and wine selections are incredible. Top notch service and attention paid to the customer. Quaint and personal. Pricy but an excellent choice for a special night out.

Went with my wife and 2 other couples for dinner. The service was excellent, and the food was delicious. They even have foie gras! We'll definitely be repeat customers.
