Forty Pearl is a sensory Pure Michigan experience in the heart of Downtown Grand Rapids. Our mission is to showcase the finest Michigan wines by pairing them with adventurous bites, sourcing seasonal ingredients locally. We are a collective of Michigan-based winemakers, chefs, story tellers, and characters.

Originally opened by Ed and Robert Brengman as a tasting room to showcase their award-winning wines and bring a taste of Traverse City to Grand Rapids, Forty Pearl has grown to be so much more with the partnership of Brengman Brothers and our culinary team, led by Chef Taylor Boeschenstein.

We’d put Michigan up with the best of ‘em for producing some of the finest wine, cocktails, and food and we strive to showcase this in every glass and plate served.

                                                          Service was not great, had to keep asking them to come back to order our food and drinks. We were having a great time talking otherwise I would have cared even more!

                                                          I recently made reservations at Forty Pearl for a women in science luncheon and the staff was amazing! We initially thought the group size was going to be small (based on those that provided the required RSVPs), but the number of individuals that showed up went well above our reserved numbers and the staff didn't skip a beat! They were able to make space for the 20 or so individuals in our group, take all of our orders, split our bills, get us food in a timely manner, and all with a positive and can do attitude! I tipped them the best I could... and wished I could give them a lot more. Thanks for the great experience!

                                                          Overall good experience. Food was about a 3.5/5, drinks were amazing. The overuse of olive oil in the entrees (namely the salmon), ruined the entree in its entirety. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful, offering a dessert or latte on the house and that was really nice. We did have to pay for the entree I was only able to eat half of though, which was a bit surprising. We’d come back again, but likely only for drinks next time.

The staff is always wonderful, efficient, adaptable to different types of groups and their goals (professional vs vacationers). It's my favorite place! - Candice Smith

                                                          The food and service were great, as usual. They have the best crispy brussel sprouts! Never a bad meal at 40 Pearl. The wine was lovely as well. However, we were quite perplexed that they were already out certain menu options - it was the Saturday before Mother's Day - we were bummed as were looking forward to a few menu items.

                                                          We received a friendly greeting at the front and were seated immediately. Our server was very well versed in how the food was prepared and we started with the asparagus with goat cheese, it was AMAZING! Next the Cherry Chicken sandwich, Brussel sprouts and the garlic fries. All of it was very good but the BEST Brussels sprouts and garlic fries! Dessert did not disappoint, a healthy portion of a 3-tiered chocolate mousse that 3 of us shared. A very enjoyable lunch before walking back to the DeVos. Highly recommend.

                                                          Wonderful meal. Really enjoyed the charcuterie plate and entrees (filet and lamb). Tomato soup was fairly mediocre and cocktails left much to be desired, but the food was overall so delicious that we will absolutely be back. Service was friendly and we loved the focus on local ingredients.

We were seated on time at a nice high top by the window. The online menu had great photos of all the selections even the unique cocktails. The food was delicious and varied. Loved the charcuterie plate and everyone was very satisfied with their entrees. Service was spot on. We will be back if ever in downtown GR!

                                                          We had a wonderful time at 40 Pearl. All our food and wine choices were very good. We really like the asparagus app.

                                                          Food and drinks are always amazing. Service was good. Sometimes it can get a little noisy if you're by a big group, but once big groups clear out it usually calms down and you can hear a little bit better.

                                                          Menu was limited. Ordered a very expensive sub par sandwich. My husbands salmon tasted old and he did not eat it. Waitress did not check on food or clear plates to see why. Very poor service. Would not recommend.

                                                          Excellent food. This was our first non-rushed dining experience since Covid began. While I understand how table time limits came about at most restaurants…it was so nice to thoroughly enjoy a slow meal (NOT slow service) with unhurried conversation and an attentive staff. Thank you! We will be back!

                                                          We picked this restaurant as something new to try in downtown Grand Rapids and we were not disappointed. We loved everything about it - the service, food and ambiance were all outstanding. The crowd was of mixed ages which was nice. This may just become our new downtown favorite.

                                                          Had an excellent meal. Our server suggested the salmon because they were out of perch and it was even better than she said it was. Just a perfect meal for both of us. And again it was a restaurant that didn't have loud music playing in the background so made it perfect for a conversation. Will definitely go back.
