“This could be a "Go To" place ... if only it were near home”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Finding others saying good things AND being close to where I was at the time, we decided to eat here. The Sea Pearl is excellent! The map shows DC Metro to be nearby, but NOT close enough to walk, however, very nearby garage parking is FREE (nice touch for the DC area).

The experience was great, with outstanding food, excellent presentation, well above par taste, comfortable and clean décor, and great service from start to finish.

The Sushi rolls on the menu looked good and next time, I’ll give them a try. Instead we had;

Crispy Duck Dumpling - Toasted pine nuts, ginger, honey, saki, soy dipping sauce -
Different – but did not expect ‘fried’ from the description on the menu. Two of them were a bit overcooked but all said and done, they were tasty, probably would not try these again.

PEI Mussels - Steeped in white wine, jalapeno, garlic, ginger, cilantro & sweet soy -
The mussels were good – for people who like mussels, this one would be a good choice.

Crab Spaghettini - Roasted tomatoes, pickled wild leek, garlic, basil, olive oil, crushed red pepper & toasted lemon panko - this dish was well prepared, very tasty and incredibly filling.

Panko Crusted Crab Cake - Mango salad, green apple, mint, Thai basil, cilantro & yuzu kosho aioli - Maybe Maryland crab, maybe not, when I asked the server, she did not know but, whatever it was – it was good – nice crispy and flaky crust on the outside, smooth creamy crab on the inside.

Overall, the Sea Pearl is well worth the trip and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who might enjoy a twist on Asian cuisine.

“What a treat!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We were recommended to try this since we couldn't get into another restaurant nearby. We loved it; the service the food, the décor. We can't wait to go again.

“Happy Holiday”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Would have been happier if they were open. I was excited to see a location nearby with positive reviews but sad to see closed for 4th AND 5th.

“Better for lunch than dinner - at least recently”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Good - but better for lunch than dinner. Have eaten here a number of times and have found the offerings for lunch much more reasonable and better overall compared to dinner. The dinner menu seems to have changed so that many of the salads my wife and I liked (ex. shrimp salad) were taken off the revised menu. Many of the things on the new menu I felt were over priced and often overspiced with jalapeno's. Probably will not be back for dinner unless the menu changes.
