I love the Pearl. I love oysters and very difficult to find in the area - shucked after order, great!

My wife and I stopped by for a beer and snack. We had the Tom Yum Soup and the Hanoi Nems as well as a beer and martini. The atmosphere was warm and friendly, the food was very good.

We were taken here by friends for dinner. As soon as we walked in I knew we were in for a treat. The venue felt great. Cosy and clean and I could smell beautiful Asian herbs being used in the kitchen. We were greeted by owner Russell and took our seats. Specials were explained and we ordered wines and cocktails....

My wife and I ate there last week on our trip to New Hampshire. We arrived without reservations and were quickly given a table. We were on the early side, nearer to 6:30 and 7 the restaurant really filled up. The service was very good: helpful, fast and friendly. We found the dished to be interesting and pretty but not...

After not visiting the Pearl for too many months, we were so pleased that it continued to meet our expectations. The menu, including the gluten free menu, offers a nice variety of selections from vegetarian and fish to well prepared meats. Food and wine are a good value for superior quality.

We have enjoyed Pearl ever since it first opened. And even with a new chef owner it has kept up its high style and favored classics. You can't go wrong with the Asian style ribs that smell of cinnamon and fall off the bone. Their crab cakes are intensely delicious. Cocktails are very well prepared. The atmosphere is buzzing like... More

Pearl is a mainstay in Peterborough and for good reason. The food is good and the service is decent. It doesn't pretend to be any more than it is which is an Asian fusion bistro with a nice oyster bar and regular bar. I've been here a couple of times now after having avoided it for a very long time.... More

I had not been in Peterborough for years and came to spend the night for a little R&R. It being Monday most places were closed except for the local pub and this joint in a strip mall. 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. The food was tremendous. Wine and bar selections equally great. Oysters, of course. I would go towards the seafood or Asian... More

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
