    This was my fourth time dining in this wonderful restaurant. I took my son here on Saturday to celebrate his 30th birthday. There were four of us. We were greeted by this very friendly, attentive, knowledgeable waitress (whose name escapes me at the moment) who had been working there for 19 years. I can understand why. She had a very warm personality and was extremely attentive to our needs. The food was delicious, and the drinks were out of this world. Service was terrific! For dessert, she brought out a plate of cupcakes and we all sang Happy Birthday to my son. On the way out, the owner invited us to have another round of drinks on the house. You don't see that in too many restaurants. This is one of the best in Bay Ridge.

    I woulld highly reccomend the Pearl Room. The waiter was attentive and everything was delicious. The appetizer,, hot antipasto was really good and the dinner was perfect. I loved the seafood with pasta. The portions are large and really good. Everyone went out of their way to make sure we had a special night. They brought over glasses of champagne to celebrate our anniversay. I will definitely return

    Went here to celebrate my mom's 84th birthday, solely based on Open Table reviews. Great choice. Food was very good and abundent, although I would recommend sharing appetizers. My husband had an amazing paella for his main course, but it was literally for two people. Great selection of food for every taste. Staff could not be sweeter or more accommodating.

    We went with a family group of 10 to celebrate a graduation. The waitress was fun and engaging. It did take a while between courses, but she kept us going with drinks and bread. The owner treated us to a free glass of champagne. The food was plentiful and deliciously prepared. About half of our group took portions to go. I recommend this place for a special occasion, where they treat you like family!

    We went here on Easter Sunday and were SO disappointed by the food (my sister was served barely cooked pasta smothered in a burnt sauce). The wait staff was apologetic but something tells me that it wasn't the first or last complaint they would have to address that day. The price of the food was outrageous considering the quality (or lack thereof). I have been here many times before but this experience REALLY changed my opinion of this place. I don't know that I (or any of the ten members of my party that day) will ever return.

I had a sweet dream and I love it. The waitress was very friendly. I would definitely recommend the pearl room to my friends in which i did. I was telling all my coworkers n customers about there. I will definitely go back there again.

    Literally the night we are here there was a fire in the apt above the restaurant. The owner and staff handled the situation well despite the fireman and intense smoke everyone was calm. We were reseated to a private room with other patrons behind the dj booth. The room was excellent we finished our meal which was OUTSTANDING!!! The dj was excellent and a fun way to finish off a great evening. Highly recommend it!!!! The fish and steak and spicy seafood appetizer were cooked perfectly. The roasted pepper spread for the butter is also excellent. No complaints except the mishap but it's NY sh-- happens. Atmosphere food music what else do you need. Enjoy!!

    Had dinner at The Pearl Room. Service was attentive without being overbearing. Food was well prepared and serve in large portions, but was not outstanding. Seafood paella was tasty, but seemed to be an Italian version of a Spanish/Latino dish. Appetizer and soup were very good. All in all a better than average restaurant.

They politely handled any customers complaints and corrected the shortcoming(s) with grace and professionalism. From one customer to a family group, no task was overwhelming.

    Sadly, this restaurant has had a decline in service and food quality in the past year. It was my absolute favorite place years ago for all special occasions and group gatherings. Now, the staff runs around like unorganized untrained newbies, the valet is never present, the food comes out late and cold consistently, and the restaurant staff itself is not very accommodating. Again, a very sad decline at what was once a high quality restaurant.

    We have frequented The Pearl Room on many occasions. Unfortunately, each time the ratings continue to drop. This last time will be our last time. We came for Mother's Day brunch. The service was absolutely horrible and the food wasn't any better. When the food finally arrived, the servers threw the food on the plates like we were pigs at a trough. Eggs and coffee were dropped and spilled on laps. There was no apology or even an acknowledgment. The food was unevenly distributed. The food and KNIVES were distributed to the table over our heads. When a complaint was made to the owner, he seemed to be annoyed at us. Throughout the brunch, the server had an attitude and even had the nerve to say we were to blame. Needless to say, I left no tip.

    We have been to the Pearl Room several times and have enjoyed it each time. Chef Rinaldi's food is full of flavor and always spot on. The service is good, but can be better. Apparently the night that we went was karaoke night at the bar. Even though we were in the dining room, we could hear the awful singing. That was the only complaint we had.

After I approached the owner, he told me there was nothing he can do about it and that we can wait for a table if we want. He did not even apologize for over-booking the restaurant.

Warm, friendly people from the host to the waitress to the bus boys serving really yummy food with sizeable portions. The pork special was fantastic. Highly recommend.
