Too many of the happy hour choices had the same tempura batter coating, which was quite greasy and heavy. We're not big drinkers, but the custom cocktail options looked intriguing. I felt under dressed, lacking a blazer with the after work crowd.

I dined here last night with some work colleagues. We ordered a mix of starters which were all excellent - light tempura batter and delicious spicy tuna tartare. Wish I had ordered more! We nearly all had the sablefish. It was a beautiful fish with very light crab dumplings (so light - more like won tons). The sauce was a... More

We had a great dinner here. My wife enjoyed her crab cake that was nearly all crab and minimal filler. The little fennel salad with it was a treat. I enjoyed the raw spicy tuna. It had a nice crisp fresh flavor. My main of duck breast was quite good. My wife had the last order of the shirt ribs... More

I really hate having to write reviews like this. The food was...fine, but with so much competition in this category, food at these prices should be more than fine. What was really unacceptable was the pace of service. Our drinks took way too long to arrive, especially considering the place was less than half full. When our drinks were gone,... More

I heard this place was a great spot to host a mixer and it was. Staff was friendly from the time I called to get info to being there with clients. I had never been there before and some of my colleagues hyped it up that I when I walked in I thought it was ok but not this super... More

I was worried I was getting into one of those high-price, small-serving, stuffy restaurants. But this turned out to be a high end but reasonably priced seafood-specialist that did a fine job on all of the dishes in my group. For those not liking seafood, there is a good selection of meat, chicken and veg. But the seafood dishes dominate... More

This restaurant has a great happy hour. They offer small plates at a discount and really discounted glasses of great wine. They also have a discount for their signature martini list. The service is great and the food is well pre-pared. I have been to many happy hours and just recently went again this past week. I enjoy their calamari... More

Went to business dinner and the wait staff was disoriented. Wife had the salmon which was totally horrible. There are a lot of high quality reasonably establishments close by.

We had a business dinner and the service and food were excellent. I had the saber fish which was one of the best pieces of fish I have ever had. I needed bread afterwards to make sure I never left any sauce on the plate it was so good. Wine was good as well. Well worth a visit

Some food items were better than others at a lunch with five friends. The Butternut Soup was just average, thin and not very hot. The sandwich was good and the pasta dish okay. We had good service and it is a nice, comfortable room. Happy Hour is popular and busy here. Pearl is convenient to Bellevue Square and next to... More
