It’s our love letter to the original husband-wife owners of The Pearl Hotel who embarked on their journey to create the Sportsman's Lodge in the 1960s. Decades and a name change later, we’re paying homage to the property’s history through this namesake neighborhood eatery.

Full dinner available Tuesday - Saturday featuring fresh, locally sourced and organic ingredients. We're happy to feature seafood straight from the Point Loma docks, delivered fresh daily! Ours is a fully scratch kitchen with each dish crafted to order.

Specialty cocktails using house-made infusions, 100% local beers and carefully curated wines are just a few of our offerings at the bar. But it doesn't stop there, come on in for what has been voted Point Loma's Best Martini.

WEEKEND POOLSIDE BRUNCH SERVED 10AM-3PM SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, STARTING 8/13!

Neat, up, on the rocks. No matter how you shake it, Charles and Dinorah would approve.

    My review is mostly based on service that evening, which was a bit slow or neglectful, but it may be due to short-staff & also a movie being shown. The dish I ordered (Seasonal Salad --- feta, mint, cucumber, watermelon, etc) was horribly prepared. The cucumber chunks were absolutely CHUNKS. No way to humanly eat them without cutting them smaller or taking multiple bites out of them. The kitchen staff should prepare this salad better for actual consumption without the guest needing to cut them smaller. This was my gripe, but overall the ambiance and the movie & dinner concept was really nice. In the future, I would order something else to better enjoy the evening & event.

    Worst experience at the Pearl in our many years of coming. My drink was served half full, like it had been made full, but spilled before it got to us. Food was bland and tired. Charcuterie cheese still had pieces of foil on it. A group of young adults (maybe 10?) were having a pool party right beside us. I know the dining area is poolside. But this kegger-like party ruined the dining experience. We miss the old menus and food prep.

    Maddie was our server. She was very knowledgable and delightful. She's your best server we've experienced at your restaurant. The Salmon was the fish of the day and it was prepared perfectly and sooo fresh. The cauliflower dish was not up to par and was a 1 out of 5 (5 being the highest). Very limited wine list.

    The fish dishes were exceptional, the pasta dish was not. The charcuterie board was uninspired and uninspiring and this is the only time EVER that I don’t regret skipping dessert. The service was perfect.

    My friend and I are huge lovers of the Pearl and all its offerings such as the restaurant. Been patrons for two decades. However, last night the service was abysmal and the food was just OK; nothing great - at least for the hefty pricing. My biggest gripe is the lackluster menu and terrible service. Our waiter was rather new and doing his best and delightful nonetheless. Hopefully the restaurant will get their act together sooner than later.

    We love the ambiance and service at The Pearl. Just wish that their menu was on the same level. The seasonal watermelon salad was outstanding but the BBQ Chicken was very disappointing. We would definitely come more often if the food was better.

    Star rating based on previous visits, we love this place. But unfortunately when we visited Wednesday evening With an open table reservation confirmed, were told simply." The kitchen is closed, but you can get drinks at the bar" at 7:00pm?! Staff was polite, but we came for dinner. Why couldn't the reservation be blocked, declined, or even lacking that call us? Why did we need to wast the trip only to scramble for a last minute seating elsewhere?

    My experience was terrible. I made a reservation over a month in advance. When we got to the restaurant, we were told it was closed. I was never told. No email, no phone call. The supervisor, Anthony, feigned a weak apology and then when we asked for help finding a different reservation, he mocked us. Charles+Dinorah made no effort to make this right. As a result, we left hungry and embarrassed and it took a while to find something else. This restaurant treated me like garbage. If you are a respectful person and expect the same from a restaurant, or at least value your time, I strongly recommend that you eat someplace else!

    The retro vibe is cool but was extremely disappointed with the food as our entrees were not cooked properly and needed to be sent back. The drinks were ok not a lot of flavor. Would not go back again or recommend to anyone.

    Great food. Interesting and perfectly prepared. We had pan seared salmon and the chicken skewer, with ice cream sandwich and seasonal crisp for desert. Two caveats: First, there is no restaurant parking-hotel guests only, which means you will probably have to walk a couple of blocks. Second, the seating is outside in a courtyard next to the pool. We were there on a blustery night in early March. There are heaters that work well, and we were dressed warmly, so it wasn't a problem. Just be aware and prepared.

    Great night maybe just pick wisely from the menu. Food while good and tasty was strangely proportioned and all quite rich and greasy. Needed a few healthier sides to go with perhaps. The portions were odd- Tiny bit of sauce or tiny bit of ice cream. Service was amazing especially on a busy night. All in all cool hip place, fun decor, yum drinks. We’re local and will be back! The music Diana Campos was fantastic.

    Planned a couple’s date night for my husband’s birthday. This was our first time at C+D and had a fantastic experience. We loved the quaint ambience and was even more wowed with our drinks and food. We took advantage of happy hour and shared the carpaccio, butter lettuce salad and skewers…all delicious. We each had two cocktails and my husband was treated to a wonderful ice cream sandwich for dessert. We will definitely come back!

    My boyfriend and I had reservations early on New Year’s Eve’s, maybe a little to early. The waitstaff was still trying to get everything ready for the night and were not attentive at all. They also had very aggressive and b*tchy undertone whenever we would ask a question about the menu. The drinks were strong and the food was good but just nothing special. They also include a 20% tip in the total fyi.

    We love the Pearl for so many reasons. One being that the bar tender makes the best cocktails and the wait staff is excellent. Further, concerning the food, quality is there. I am disappointed however that they have changed their menu and now there are just tapas-like food to order or a very expensive piece of meat or fish. Please bring back your delicious roasted beet salad and your short rib dish which was outstanding.

    Quick service but would have been better if food wasn’t faster than drink service. Also could ease off the extra sprinkling of salt. But herb bread, crudo, watermelon salad, baked oysters and pork chop were excellent

    Ambiance was great. Drinks were good. I have a chip on my shoulder by making a reservation on Open Table and then receiving a nasty gram this am accusing us of not showing for the reservation. So that took away from over all feeling. Food was average. But go visit just due to how unique the place is.
