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.

Light bites and sharing plates available. Please stay tuned for the release of our new dinner menu this summer.

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

    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.

    It was such a cute place, very charming with old school 70s-80s vibes. The signage was confusing though. We didn’t realize it was part of the hotel first and then to enter, the door says something about entrance to the pool. A quick sign would help a ton with that. Food was decent with a smaller menu. We were there during happy hour but I’m not sure we were charged happy hour prices. It was a little pricey for what it was but it was a nice little place for a Friday night where we could reserve a table in advance.

    Bartender was a pro and food was very good. Really enjoyed their homemade ice cream sandwich. Very fresh and flavorful salad. Lovely presentation. Service was friendly but could have been a little more attentive- felt forgotten a few times. Looking at the pool and the courtyard was very relaxing. Love the retro mid century architecture of The Pearl.

    My party of 4 had been to the Pearl many years ago on separate occasions and here we are in 2021 and it’s just like we remembered. We ordered several small plates for our table, enjoyed reminiscing about the classic movies on the television. Our hostess/ server was very pleasant. All the while, we ourselves as we sipped on our fancy cocktails. A memorable and positive experience overall! I would recommend this place for down to earth folks for an intimate casual dinner.

    Destination: Charles + Dinorah's!! This is not only a boutique hotel restaurant, this is a quaint little boutique hotel. I love this place for the atmosphere mainly, but...the food is also delicious, fresh and the menu is creative and very well presented. The drinks are fun and the wine so crisp and nice! This is a great getaway for a intimate date night or for a girls night. I have been here both times with my daughter and have been very pleasantly surprized. The happy hour is a combination of well prepared small plates with the regular drink menu adjusted price-wise. You will not be disappointed. Shhhh...but, PLEASE don't tell anyone about this little gem as I wouldn't want it to be overly crowded and hard to get a table!

    This was legit some of the best food I've had in the city. My girlfriend and I went IN on this menu because we just couldn't stop. Cocktails: Time is On My Side - beautiful highball cocktail that's refreshing on any hot day Mother of Pearl - coupe cocktail with amazing texture and rich flavor Peaty Princess - rocks cocktail with smoky, lemony, herbal goodness Vieux Carre - rocks cocktail that reminded me of mediera; elegant and worth the price Dishes: Raw oysters - sweet and buttery Grilled oyster - FLAVOR BOMB; we had to order more Japanese Fried Chicken (JFC) - perfectly fried with a great aoili Grilled Octopus - blood orange and octopus might be my new favorite combo Sticky Wings - amazing juxtaposition of sweet and spicy Mushroom Gnocchi - so creamy and nutty from the brown butter sauce Chocolate Pot de Creme - pomegranate can be a boring fruit, until you put it on this WE'LL BE BACK.
