Food was limited but a super wine list, A very pleasant evening with friendly staff.

We'd been wanting to eat at Pearl & Ash for some time now and were excited to be going given there has been quite a bit of positive hype about the place. Our experience was average all around, nothing terrible but nothing noteworthy either. The service is a bit slow and disjointed as is the timing on the food. The steak was very tasty but other dishes were average. The chicken meatballs which were highly recommended by our server were strange and like dense chicken spam. I wouldn't go back nor would I recommend going here to otherwise when there are so many other fantastic dining options in NYC.

Service was very strange. Not sure if they were down a server or two but there was no one at the door upon entering, the bartender struggled to take orders and once seated, we were required to flag down our server to order and again and again... and again. Perhaps they are living off of the NYTimes review from years ago.

Great place with super food. Wine lovers will be happy. Not a bargain but worth every penny.

I had been here 3 years ago and it was very good. Great food, energy, service etc although this time around the service was extremely poor- recommended a disgusting beer and was generally not knowledgeable of the menu. Also, although we ordered small plates, the food took an unreasonable time to come out and the staff was very unapologetic when we expressed our unhappiness. I will not be returning to Pearl and Ash.

Truly disappointing. A very limited uninventive menu; quite different from the menu presented on OpenTable. No specials. The burrata was very fresh and creamy, but bland.

The server was sullen and inattentive. Refused to bring a bit of chopped garlic when asked. The skirt steak was just OK

I asked for a cocktail but was told that the bar was closed, although it looked rather open.

The wine list was great, though.

My wife and I went to Pearl & Ash on a Friday night after an event at a LES art gallery. Scallop crudo was a little bland and strangely sweet, but everything was uphill from there. Spicy broccoli rabe was inventive and tasty (note that the rabe sits atop a ricotta-type base, not ideal for the lactose-intolerant). Octopus was great, beef brisket was good comfort food. Wine list is strong, though there aren't many interesting by-the-glass options.

Wost experience ever. They were out of 3 of the main dishes.( there were only 4 main dishes) all of their food were too salty.

The staff at Pearl and Ash did everything possible to make my wife's 40th B Day special. She has a major dietary restriction and they worked with us like it wasn't a big deal. I can't tell you how rare that is among elite restaurants. We will be BACK!!!

It is a bar that also serves small plates. It is most definitely not a restaurant.

The bartender was attentive and provided excellent service. The food was inventive, creative, and very delicious. The wines were very good and beautifully priced.

Delicious food, great service. Ask for the sommelier - he was amazing. Definitely a fantastic meal.

Too much salt. Everything was overly salted. Wish they had been more interested or concerned about this when we mentioned it.
However, nice bartender, good music.

Slow and terrible service. I used to love to come to pearl and ash. Food is not as good ever since they changed chef. The place is slow on Sunday night and it took them forever to get our food out. We sat by the kitchen and saw our food getting cold on the window. We won't be coming back.
