“Good food!”
Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

We visited this place for dinner. I was happy to see that they had a kids menu. Very limited. But they did have one. My Holstein like sushi and that was one of the options on the kids menu. We all had sushi and it was absolutely delicious. We sat outside. I definitely don't suggest that if its remotely sunny because they only have covers that go over the top. The curtains are only there for decoration. So the sun shined in on us from the side and it wasn't pleasant. Our waitress was very nice and staff were very quick to refill your water and take your empty plates. I would visit this place again for sure.

The cultured pearl we heard alot about but it was not what we were expecting. The food was ok and service was good but not quite as kid friendly as we wanted it. Also the sushi looked great we did not try so that might have been our mistake

“Will not be back”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

We have been coming to Rehoboth for years, and we always dine at the Cultured Pearl. Last night we had reservations for an outside table, for my birthday dinner for 14 people. When we arrived, they said they would not seat us outside (it was cloudy but never rained), so we requested a table at the front of the restaurant, and even offered to be seated at different tables to make it easier for the staff (there were plenty of tables available). Instead they wanted to seat us at the worst table in the restaurant, which is where we always are seated since we have a large party. It was my birthday and I didn't want to be in the back corner. They said that we could not be seated in the front of the restaurant because they had "just sat a table." So, we left. On the way out, the manager at the desk did not even look up as 14 people walked out of the restaurant. He had zero concern that he was losing our $700 in business. We went to Fins; they were very accommodating, and we had a fabulous dinner with awesome service. There are too many great restaurants in Rehoboth to go back to the CP.

“Atmosphere Awesome, Sushi Overpriced”
Reviewed June 10, 2014 via mobile

This place draws you in with their stunning roof top terrace. The resturant is set on top a shallow pond (which was filthy and needed to be cleaned which when you are eating is not appetizing).

The cute little pagodas are light with light lanterns. Great atmosphere for drinks.

The sushi was okay. Fresh but not for the price.

The "Sushi for Two" is more than two can eat! I recommend that for three or order the "Sushi for One" with another roll.

The Dynamite Roll was awesome. The piece of jalapeño gives it a kick.

The chocolate shots were cute but overpriced.

The drinks are great. Sake Sangria or the Red Lotus.
