"I love the dive feel of this place – like its cool and trendy. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The oysters were briny, cool and delicious. Service was well-timed and friendly, drinks and champagnes were chilled to perfection. Just wished they had a larger champagne list."

We had an outstanding experience at Bubbles and Pearls. We came in for happy hour/dinner on a Friday and night and enjoyed the experience immensely. Henry and Marcy took great care of us and pointed out the happy hour which consisted of fresh shucked east coast oysters for $1 and a bottle of sparkling rose for $20! Great happy hour deal. We then ordered the Mussels and fig flatbread for our main courses which were both delicious. We could not get enough of the fresh, hot, crispy bread they give you to dip in the lemon butter Mussel sauce. The staff worked very well together in a semi tight space and we felt very welcome. Awesome job Josie, your restaurant rocks!

This was our second time dining. The food was excellent, the bloody mary - which I have been thinking about since our last time there, was as good, if not better than I remembered. The bartender is phenomenal. She made a yellow watermelon martini that was outstanding! I had the lamb chops both times and they melt in your mouth. My husband had the chicken which he ate every last bite of. If I was forced to find anything even slightly negative, I would say they should add 1 or 2 more entree options. But if limiting the options is what keeps the quality of the products and preparation so high, then I take it back :-)

I received a phone call at 4:45pm on the day of my reservation which was supposed to be at 6:30pm. The person from the restaurant indicated that they were going to close at 7:30pm that eve - and did I want to come in earlier. So basically my party was going to have to dine and dash if we came in at 6:30. This was a special event and not professional of you to call me at the last minute like that. won't be coming to your restaurant

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.

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.
