“A Hidden Gem in Napa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Highly recommend reservations since this is a very small restaurant behind the downtown mall. The menu is eclectic but everything was delicious. Lunch on Saturdays include $1 oysters; the balsamic marinated and the green salsa verde oysters were awesome! Daily specials are a must and generous portions. Fresh fish is often on the list. Often busy, often closed for private parties. Services is friendly and attentive.

“A great eatery in Napa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

The Pearl was a great restaurant within walking distance of our B&B. We ate early in the evening, but the atmosphere was initmate and quiet and the service was wonderful.

“Fine Dining in Local Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We've been going to our local favorite restaurant for years because of its consistently excellent menu and personalized service. In addition to the regular menu (which you can see online), Pearl has several specials daily--always a fish main course, including recently, wild salmon, grouper, mahi-mahi, and halibut. A soft-shell crab sandwich can be found throughout the summer, and their soup changes daily, always delicious. Prices are reasonable--sometimes extraordinary--the Saturday lunch special of $1 oysters, for example. The owners Pete and Nikki Zeller make locals feel like family and are equally solicitous to travelers new to the restaurant. The small but excellent wine list is constantly changing and reasonably priced. I found a half-bottle on it priced at $25, the same wine at a excellent St. Helena restaurant costs $38.

“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Very good crab cakes and tuna steak. Nice little patio outside, but quite a lot of traffic on the street just next to it.

“great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

we stumbled upon this as we were waiting for our room to be ready in Napa.
The Oysters (4 flovours) were all very good and the tuna sandwich was also very good.

if you catch a saturday the oysters are only $1 each (great deal) The service was friendly and outside terrace was comfortable. Worth a try.
