The menu looked intriguing so we decided to give it a try. This was definitely the right decision. They have a handful of... More

Hip, fun, noisy. This is what you read about Pearl. True, all of it. A small place, one row of tables, one bar, seating at the bar. Hip and very loud, but who the heck cares. We loved it.

I don't think I've ever had a bad meal there and I go there several times a year. Every so often I may have a subpar cocktail but I send it back and they replace it no questions asked. I very much appreciate the gluten-free options. Amazing burnt caramel gelato

In general the food was very good. Everyone else's food was apparently very enjoyable, I had the panko encrusted haddock which was a mistake as it was over cooked, probably because the pieces of fish were quite thin, it would have been better to have one thicker piece. Servers were very courteous and attentive, but food was a little slow... More

Although a bit pricey, the food, variety of oysters, as well as incredible desserts, makes this a grand slam every time! The staff, chefs, and servers are top notch, and make a visit here a fun dining experience.

Pearl is our go-to restaurant for a night out. Great mixed drinks, interesting menu items, and a cool atmosphere. It's a small place, so reservations are recommended..

Coming from Denver, we do not get this variety of fresh seafood, the salmon, and panko crusted haddock, baked perfectly. All sides were fresh too
