Contemporary American
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.

    So disappointed… Waited 10 minutes for the hostess to show up. It’s a tiny place. Where was she? They finally sat us along side the pool but it was cold and their heater was out of gas (it was 6:30 and should’ve been replaced the day before or before they started dinner). Bartender came out and she changed out the tank and started the heater for us. The waitress came around and took our order for wine and an appetizer. We waited a while and she came by to ask if we wanted to order dinner but we said we wanted to start with the appetizer first. Still nothing. Then she came by again and asked if we were finally ready to order dinner but we said we never got the appetizer, so she went to check on it and admitted that she never even submitted the order so we waited another 20-30 minutes. Finally after an hour we got our first appetizer, a beef tartar which was mediocre at best. Then we ordered another appetizer, sun-chokes, which the server said we’re great. These came shortly thereafter but were just ok, maybe average. We really wanted to like this place as we hadn’t been here since before the Covid lockdowns and heard great things and being from Pt Loma I saw how they took advantage of a Motel 6 type of property and made the most of it but the food was over priced, service was poor (server blamed it on a group of 20 they were serving but we didn’t see any group that large). The place is small. The server waived the appetizers on our bill but that wasn’t really the issue. Try this place with a buyer-beware attitude. Maybe it was just that evening but if it was lower priced we might go back but at these prices for a fairly limited menu, it’s one and done for us. Good luck…

    We had to wait a while to be seated (with reservation) / served, but the server made it right by comping our espresso and providing a 10% discount. She was a great & personable waitress and the food was good! Atmosphere was really cool

    From the prices we thought the food would be good and portions generous. The burrata was an embarrassment and the toast was burned. Oh yeah, and the pool was a tiny little thing. The owners should just stick to drinks and appetizers, the menu is so limited and overpriced.

    Disappointing showing for a normally cool spot. A pair of families had four kids who were unnecessarily loud. Despite the staff asking them multiple times, the families took no action and the ambiance suffered.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!
