Fabulous, inventive food and wine. Great value and service. We went the day a national emergency was declared so it was a tad quiet. Owners and staff were great. Please consider booking so this restaurant stays alive!

This restaurant is just wonderful in every sense. The food is fantastic, the service is attentive without being pushy, the wine list is extensive. Food comes to the table as it is prepared and not perfectly timed. That means it is super fresh, right off the stove. I‘m from Fort Lauderdale and Bubbles and Pearls is my favorite restaurant.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. we had someone in our party with a bad back and they offered to bring out a low table (all seating is high tables or at the bar). She was okay with high stool with high back.
Our party of 3 shared everything. The oysters were local and delicious. The shucker smelled each oyster as he shucked to check if it was okay and I appreciate that! The fig fontina flat bread was incredible and so was the bubbly Brie. Also very happy with the pork buns and kale salad. Creative cocktails are offered as well. I enjoyed a New Fashioned instead of Old.
The venue is small and there is techno music pumping away. I don’t mind this but some do.
Be sure to take a trip to the rest room. It’s quite unique! We will def be back to B&P!

Superb! The oysters and bubbles pair nicely. Mussels were perfect. The baked Brie is not to be missed! The service was top notch, making my husbands birthday dinner perfect. *

We've been there twice and each time the food is consistently outstanding. It's small plates to share with others at the table. Flatbreads great. Muscles and clams great. The lamb chops are the tastiest that I've ever had. Thank you Bubbles & Pearls!
One suggestion, the stools for the high top tables are a bit uncomfortable.

Oysters for a dollar during happy hour are the freshest I’ve had in years. We also had the steamed clams absolutely delicious. Highly recommend this little hotspot small but friendly and inviting.

The food (we shared a huge ribeye) was one of the best if not the best we ever had. Assorted oysters were a real treat. One of the owners came by our table to check on everything, charming professional. The only down-side were the stools, a bit uncomfortable, but not enough to keep us from coming back!

"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.
