“Un-Perfect Pear”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

I would have liked to give Perfect Pear more stars, but just felt like I could not do so.

My friend and I went to lunch on Friday. We arrive around 12:30 pm and did not get lunch until around 1:20 pm. Yet the table next to us came in around 1:10 pm and got all their meals around 1:30 pm. The food was great, but to wait almost an hour is just not acceptable. I think I will return for lunch, but would hope management, knowing someone waited so long (Owner stopped by our table and apologize telling us we came in at the tail end of lunch) would have at least compensated the ice tea.

Also, the dining room is too dark and needs more natural light.

“Just short of "pearfect", change and attention needed...”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

although it's the finest new restaurant addition, IMHO, for the Ahwatukee community and one I'd want to frequent often. What's amiss is that all but roughly one salad, pasta, or signature sandwich--I've now tried nearly all--is riddled or topped or tossed with cheese, be it Goat, Romano, gorgonzola, or feta. So much cheese covers up flavors of items that would be better without the cheese and perhaps topped with toasted nuts. Twice menu items with listed ingredients were missing them, such as zucchini, mushrooms or arugula. Cook staff should be made more aware of menu ingredients. Restaurant owner, please consider using nuts or not putting cheese in practically everything. In the meantime, I'll have to request omission of cheese or else cheese on the side.

“Excellent weekend brunch”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

Service was very good and the food was excellent. We sat outside and the misters were on - it was shady and quite comfortable. We shared the pear bread french toast and the pacific beach fritatta with sweet potato tots. Everything was delicious. It was nice to have a mimosa with it and someone else had a bloody mary that they said was good. We will go back again, for sure.

“Quiet, relaxing patio”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

This is a great place to sit outside, enjoying a glass of wine and delicious food surrounded by the foothills of South Mountain and Desert Foothills Park. The service was friendly.

“Delicious and nice atmosphere”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Food was very good and enjoyed the evening with family. The chicken Marsala sandwich was the best, but gma Mac was mediocre. Ate outside and it was a beautiful evening.
