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.

We were looking forward to a Valentine lunch at Pearl. The restaurant was full and we had to wait about 20 minutes - we did not mind since we had heard that the food was great. The wait staff were very pleasant but they did not seem to be prepared for the volume of customers and several of the menu... More

Valentine Dinner at Pearl was almost like returning back to Paris for an evening. The four course pre fixe offered a good variety of beef and seafood for appetizers and entrees. My wife loved the country onion soup for the starter. This creamy soup was the highlight of her dinner. I most enjoyed my entree of tenderloin and large lobster... More

Pearl had been highly recommended to us, so we were looking forward to our first visit. Unfortunately, the evening did not live up to the hype. We should have been tipped off immediately when we entered the main dining room. The atmosphere was uninviting, and the food that followed was just "okay". The portions were small and some of the...

I had lunch here with friends to celebrate a birthday and catch up over some great food. Several of us got the steak special which was a tender/perfectly cooked sirloin with crispy potatoes, green beans, onions and mushrooms. It was only $12. There were several salads, 2 soups, multiple entrees, and sandwiches. For dessert there was creme brulee and flourless... More

I can't say we were surprised, since Pearl has so many positive reviews, but I would like to say how much we enjoyed our evening. EXCELLENT service from our waitress, plus the chef/owner came out several times to be sure all was OK. When my wife had a few questions about how the special was prepared, the kitchen gladly tweaked... More

Dined with a vendor (3 reps) and a colleague last evening. The five of us started with drinks in the bar. Nice space, extensive wine list with a little of everything by the glass or bottle. Glad to see a decent glass of wine available for $8. We were quickly seat and provided a menu, specials, including the local fish... More
