This restaurant was recommended to us by our Airbnb host. It did not disappoint! We had the Cauliflower Steak, mussels, and flatbread with sweet potatoes and kale. Everything was great!! It was a Tuesday and also happy hour so we took advantage of some $10 special deals and wine discounts. Atmosphere was friendly and down to earth. Place is especially vegetarian- friendly but also has plenty of non-veg choices.

We all had very good time and even had to repeat as the Oysters were very fresh and delicious and just couldn't say no. Specially on happy hour.

I dine out frequently, this was the best meal that I’ve had in ages! 5 big stars. The oysters, the bone marrow, the bubbling brie, the flatbreads, the cocktails and the service...just fabulous!

Chef Josie from Top Chef has an exquisite restaurant that serves wonderful food in an atmosphere that is casual and friendly. The 500 degree mussels were so delicious that our friend who never ate seafood because he thought "I don't like it", loved them and ate almost all of them.
The ribeye steak was flavorful and perfectly cooked. The cauliflower steak was glazed with miso and sesame seeds and was tender and flavorful.
Do yourself a favor and GO to Bubbles + Pearls!!!!

The oysters were great, the service friendly, but the cauliflower steak inedible salty and a misrepresentation on the menu. It was the whole head, roasted, not sliced into thick steaks. The result was just bad, but the rest of the food was fine.

We LOVE OpenTable, because we always find THE BEST places. We were in town for New Years Eve (my husband and me), and were made to feel welcome and part of the place from the minute we arrived. Great energy, amazing food (we had Oysters, cocktails, Clams, Baked Brie, FlatBread, and Key Lime dessert), fun people, lively scene... if we lived in Ft. Lauderdale, we'd become regulars. Thank you Bubbles& Pearls (we found pearls in our oysters, even) -- we had a great time, HAPPY 2019. Sarah & Steve

Food was good but, we were expecting more from a top chef contestant. The chicken dish was good but, it was spicy and was not described as such on the menu. The menu is very limited and that is not surprising as the space is tiny. They obviously do the best they can with the space they have. The bartender Heather was excellent! We will definitely give it another try.

Delicious creative menu. Josie is truly an inspired chef. Wonderful diverse menu. Something for every one. Most fun to order many dishes and share. Divine Bao buns with pork belly, kimchi, daikon radish & cilantro ( Picture attached) & Burratta salad. Great flat bread selections.
Special treat to see the artwork of Jim Kiselica on display.

My date and I decided to give this place a try. It turns out we found a gem! The food was delicious. A nice portion of Cherry Stone Clams in a broth that was great! And of course good bread to dip. The kale Caesar was light and tasty. The mushroom flatbread was one of the best flatbreads I have tasted. It turns out we were being served by the Top Chef owner. She was very cool and took time to get to get to know you. I highly recommend Bubbles and Pearls. I plan to go back soon and sample their specialty of Champagne and oysters.

Marcy, the hostess, was very friendly and accommodating to seat our group of 7. The restaurant is small, so she squeezed in an extra seat to a normal table for 6 which was fine. We arrived during happy hour and enjoyed the $1 oysters from VA that were delicious! We also enjoyed the $20 bottle of bubbles deal they offer regularly during happy hour. We shared a variety of other dishes that were all excellent including the bone marrow, bubbling brie, wild mushroom flatbread, tuna app and burrata. It was a Friday evening so they were quite packed which I’m certain is why the attention from the waitstaff was slower than the last time we ate here. But the food came out staggered allowing us time to share each dish. We will be back again!

This is our new favorite local area restaurant. They have an amazing Oyster happy hour, combined with daily specials and different things on select nights of the week. If they have the roasted Brussels sprouts special when you are there, they are a MUST have :)

My wife and I were looking for a nice meal and that we didn't find at Bubbles and Pearls, where the emphasis is only on the drinks and not on the quality of the food. The food was cold and terrible and the service horrible. Josie should pay more attention to running her restaurant and staff and spend less time behind the bar shucking oysters.

What an amazing experience. Very cute bar with amazing drinks and even better food. Oysters are available fresh and shucked as you order. Our waiter Randy was the best. ALL of his suggestions were amazing. We even tried things we weren’t familiar with because of his suggestions...I’m glad we did. The ambience was fun. Great place to get cocktails with small plates. Will definitely make this a regular spot. Wait did I mention the homemade key lime pie?
