Diner Reviews
  • "everything was awesome, the only issue I had was there was a table of 8 people who where so loud thru our whole meal, my husband could not hear what we where saying to each other"

  • "Wine list is ok but so overpriced with pinot noir starting in the mid $80's."

  • "We were treated to a semi-private room for a small birthday dinner and it was perfect. Our family tends to get a little loud and excitable and we felt very comfortable (and hopefully did not disturb the other guests). Food was amazing!!!! We filled up on apps so I was able to take the rest of my dinner home for the next day and it was fantastic (Merlot Braised Short Ribs....YUM!). Top Notch!"

  • "My husband and I went to Pearl Bar & Dining on July 5th, for the holiday. We have been there before and had a wonderful dining experience. We were shown to our table immediately upon arrival. The food was EXCELLENT, but the service was less than stellar. Our server spent more time talking to his fellow servers that attending to our table. My husband had coffee, and when the server brought the coffee it was cold. I has iced tea, and we had to call upon different servers passing our table to get more to drink. He simply was not paying attention to us. It was a great effort on my part to leave any tip AT ALL. My husband was not happy with our server and felt a tip was not warranted."

  • "Food was good. Portions were not large, but adequate. Waiter was helpful with suggestions. Water was never refilled. Coupon made it a good value. Not too busy when we visited. Had to ask for bread. In fairness, we only ordered entrees."

  • "We are fairly regular customers at Pearl and decided to treat ourselves after working in our yard and gardens all day. Pearl has an excellent chef. We've always felt that the quality of food preparation is very high there, and after all, excellent cooking has to be top priority. I had the broiled duck accompanied by grilled asparagus -- really duck a l'orange. My wife had the wagyu steak. We started with their excellent Caesar salad. All was excellent. Prices are on the high side, probably because it adjoins the Westin Hotel, but the cooking makes it all worth it."

  • "Pearl is a excellent restaurant that is great for happy hour in the bar or a romantic dinner in the dining room. We enjoyed the beet salad prepared with fresh arugula, creamy goat cheese and a perfect dressing. For entrees we had the rack of lamb and the merlot braised boneless beef shortribs. Both dishes were perfectly prepared and totally delicious. Service was spot-on. We'll be back!"

  • "I made a reservation for myself and two cousins for a weekday lunch. We were celebrating a birthday and hadn't seen each other for a few months. We were given a very lovely round table that was private and could be partitioned off behind sheer curtains. The food was outstanding, lots of choices and everything we had was delicious. Our server was very pleasant and even though we were there for almost 3 hours and never felt hurried. I will definitely be back."

  • "All three of us had a different choice from the menu and love it. One friend always "customizes" - always asks for substitutions or extras. No problem for Pearl - they're always accommodating. Love to go to Pearl. Sunday night is one of my favorites!"

  • "To celebrate my friend's birthday, I took her to Pearl. I ordered the beet salad & cioppino. the salad was delicious, but the cioppino was outstanding!! generous amounts of seafood tasted fresh in a tasty red broth. I would recommend these 2 dishes without reservation. my friend ordered the Caesar salad with chicken, but didn't comment about it. service: I shouldn't need to ask for bread/rolls or ask for a refill of my tea. however, when asked, the waitress was cheerful and accommodating. the place was almost empty, so she wasn't overloaded. PARKING: they do offer "free" valet parking-- free for $5 ! only when I protested did the westin say that we could park ourselves anywhere on P4 level for no charge. I would definitely dine here again:)"

  • "Luncheon went well, food was delightful. If waitperson had offered to refresh our beverages without prompting, it would have been a 5 star experience."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "We went to Pearl to celebrate Father's Day. Sadly we were both disappointed in our experience. First, they were out of several foods we wanted to order, the service was certainly not up to its usual good standards, and although my food was presented beautifully and the ingredients were very fresh, it had not been salted properly at all. On a better note, the Caesar salad was excellent. Pearl is known for its bread pudding, and the "banana foster's" version did not appeal to us, so we decided not to order dessert. Pearl's Happy Hour is still the best bet."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The Pearl has always been at the top of our list for Bellevue eateries, especially for lunch. The service has always been excellent, attentive yet discreet. Food from the open kitchen has been imaginative in concept and plating. Our last visit, for a Father's Day dinner, was both excellent and shocking. The calamari appetizers were very tasty, the house salads were delicious, the Cioppino entree drew raves, but the Scallops dish was the reason behind the less-than-generous rating for dinner! Somehow, the thought of paying $29 for exactly 3 scallops was mind-blowing, to say the least. As a result, the decision has been made that our patronage will be lunch only."

  • "Pearl Bar and Dining is not the place if you are looking for quiet conversation, but if you enjoy great food and exceptional service I recommend it highly!"

  • "My husband and I went there for a nice dinner but the fire alarm went off the entire time we were there. We couldn't even talk to each other. The thing that makes me mad is that they didn't even offer to compensate us for the inconvenience. Like offer a free dessert or take a drink off ect. So needless to say I will not go back. When you spend 150 for 2 for dinner you expect a little bit more. I am all about customer service."

  • "!We are frequent diners at Pearl, mostly for lunch. Menu excellent and lunch prices are appropriate. The quality of food is excellent, as is the service staff."

  • "We visit Pearl a few times a year, for lunch and dinner. It has never failed us! The menu always has really interesting items to try (this time black risotto with scallops). Our waitress, Amanda, was very personable was was quite alert to any needs we had. We'll definitely go back to Pearl!"

  • "I met a friend for lunch at Pearl. I loved the seating, which divided a very large space into intimate and comfortably private small group settings. We had the tuna tartar and the steamed mussels in garlic butter. Both were very tasty. Pearl offers a large selection of salads, and a great wine list. Great atmosphere, food, and very nice service!"

  • "A friend and I were visiting Bellevue. Had already planned to go shopping at Bellevue Square and thought Pearl Bar & Dining would be the perfect dinner venue since we were already there. Ordered 4 appetizers to share. Presentation was very bad especially the Savoury chicken dish. Taste wasn't that great either. Beet Arugula salad was just simple and mediocre. I have had better Roasted Pork belly and beet salad. Usually beet salad would taste better with caramelized walnuts which is just my opinion but this salad from PBD was just blend. Definitely wouldn't be returning and recommending to anyone. Was very disappointed. "

  • "My wife and I joined you on Sunday and enjoyed an excellent dinner and cocktails. My wife had the rack of lamb and you could cut it with a fork, with it came a lemon risotto which was divine. I had a fillet with smashed potatoes, also perfectly prepared. We had some tempura hors de oeuvres which were great as well. We drink different wines, so we each enjoyed a glass of wine from the wine list. All of that was topped off with a wonderful chocolate desert. What's not to like. Our waiter was fantastic, knew his wines, was prompt and gave great personal service. Easy to rate 5 stars with me."

    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "When I saw the prices I figured we were in for a special experience. What we got was overcooked French Toast, undercooked bacon, mediocre hash and eggs, eggs benedict and a weak attempt at dressing up the meals with an "appetizer". There is nothing special about this restaurant unless you want to pay too much for mediocre food. Service was ok but even my guests were uncomfortable with the price I paid for their meals given our experience. I wouldn't recommend Pearl to anyone."

  • "Food was very good. Mother's Day menu had something for everyone, even the kids. Staff was friendly and attentive. We'll be back."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Perhaps my expectations were a little high, but our visit to Pearl was just okay. Saturday night - 6:30pm. Service was slow and there were open tables around us. Drinks took forever to arrive. After the first round we had to find the waitress to place our dinner orders. Chioppino was average, perhaps a little small and under-flavored. No one at the table commented that their food was good. "

  • "Their special for the day was a King Salmon dish prepared with a pesto sauce and ranked right up there as one of the best salmon plates I have ever had. Very friendly staff and the service was top notch. "

  • "We went to Pearl for Easter brunch. The service was great. Our only disappointment was the food. While it was good, I had a crab omelette that had an over abundance of cheese and only a small amount of crab. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "I have been there numerous times and always had great food. I recommended Pearl for lunch with 3 friendsand was disappointed. Three of the meals were burgers cooked 3 ways as ordered but served incorrectly. I had pork sliders which were pretty bad. Tasted like they marinated in vinegar. I will go back but my friends may not want to. "

  • "Group of 7 for a business dinner. Started early and stayed through a few bottles of wine. Oysters were good and sablefish was excellent! Salmon was a tad overcooked, though it was king, and I prefer sockeye. Service was just right - attentive enough, not annoying and the server was friendly and cheerful. Offered Pinot glasses for those drinking Pinot - nice touch. Ambiance was modern swanky. Quite when we started, but noise picked up as it got busier. Tables in dining area are far enough apart, though, that the noise was not noticeable at all while seated."

  • "This is the second time our group has chosen Pearl for dinner during our work trips to Bellevue, and it did not disappoint. We had 5 people, and were seated at the first table, which would normally be awkward near the door, but there was a great privacy curtain to wrap us in. The visit prior, our group of 5 was seated in a small private dining room with curtains as well. The food was excellent. I may be obsessed with their filet mignon and truffle fries. The short ribs are also a favorite in our group, as well as the tuna and calamari. I definitely recommend it if you have not given Pearl a chance yet."

  • "I have eaten lunch here a few times and enjoyed the crab cakes and the steak salad - both are delicious! Good wines too! The service is excellent and the staff is friendly and welcoming. Dining is a pleasant and comfortable experience. This is one of the best restaurants in downtown Bellevue. I highly recommend it."

  • "Looks like the bar area is very popular. We were dining in the main dining room. The food was good, waiter very attentive. Accommodated the changes my husband requested for the dish he had. The sable fish comes with three little crab dumplings... Wish it was a full dish..delish! Good experience. Will be back"

  • "This was my first time at Pearl. Was originally looking for a seafood place in Bellevue so I thought I would try a new place. The online reviews were strong so this seemed like a good place. I was blow away by the quality of food at Pearl. Every appetizer I tried was 5 star and reasonably priced. My friend and I tried the salads and each had 2 appetizers as our main course, rather than try an entree. Everything on the menu sounded appetizing and we were blown away by the flavors of everything we tried. We topped it off trying 3 different deserts and a glass of wine, and the total bill was 109.00! The service was excellent and the wait staff was very attentive! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who asks!"
