Food was great. Menu is typical of Key West.
Very crowded and noisy.
Do not have a full bar. Beer and wine only.
But wine selection was good and reasonably priced.

Small neighborhood spot off the normal area around Duval Street. Seats 50 or less. Exceptional wine list. Excellent food. Recommend the conch chowder, the seafood pot pie (be careful, VERY HOT when served) and the poached pear with vanilla ice cream and sea salt caramel sauce for dessert.
Note: this is NOT a place for quiet conversation, but otherwise excellent

Great hidden gem off the beaten bath in Key West. It is on the small size capacity seating wise so make reservations! Food was very creative and delicious! Our waitress was friendly and attentive and answered all of our inquiries and gave us good suggestions. Not really a place for children however.

The restaurant space is very small, the ceiling looked like they ran out of remodeling money, and the service was just okay, but the grouper with risotto was outstanding and the wine prices were reasonable. The staff had a great aim to please attitude and doted over us making up for the shortcomings.

We were so happy we took a recommendation and went to Little Pearl. One of the best meals we had while on vaction in Key West. Make a reservation if you want to go there. It is small and many who stopped by to ask for a table were turned away. Fabulous place and great staff.

My husband and I had an absolutely amazing dinner at Little Pearl! This was the last meal of our Key West trip and we wished we’d found it sooner. The food was incredible! My husband ate every drop of his chowder and my mixed greens salad was light and the dressing was delicious. His ribeye was cooked perfectly and the sauce on my swordfish was to die for!!! Even though we were full, we were excited for dessert. We ordered the panna cotta and key lime pie. Both were sooo good but the key lime pie was one of the best we’ve had. The staff were all very attentive and friendly. Little pearl will definitely be a first stop next year!

We received a recommendation for this restaurant from a wine store nearby. The food choices were interesting, local-based and delicious. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. The restaurant is very small - we lucked out with a two person table opposite the bar and felt very fortunate as many of the tables are very close to each other. I would not recommend this restaurant for any group larger than four.

This restaurant exceeded all of my expectations by a long shot. Food and service were flawless. I recommend the seafood pot pie! Different from the many of the ho-hum menu options of the other "fine-dining" establishments in Key West. In general, dDining is expensive in Key West and Little Pearl is no exception, but the total experience at Little Pearl was worth every penny. LP is on my list of places to re-visit when I return to Key West

Dined with a friend on a Saturday evening in September. Since both of us were working the next day, we arrived early and had a single glass of wine. Wine list offers a nice selection of wine and beer. As the night wore on, the noise level became more energetic but not so much that we couldn't hear each other. The wait staff was friendly and very attentive. The restaurant was small enough that if we needed them, it would have been easy to catch their eye. Menu featured many seafood options. We enjoyed the evening's ceviche of black grouper with a bit of heat as a starter. Diver Scallops were exceptional. Spiny Lobster salad was very good, especially the spicy version of a ranch on the greens. Finished with the panna cotta, very light and refreshing flavor to end the evening.

A great, small neighborhood restaurant in Old Town Key West. Our server Amy is outstanding and she will have options for us when we arrive due to our dietary restrictions. The food is always very fresh with modern twist that keep the meals interesting each time we visit. This is one of the best values for a high quality meal in Key West.

The fabulous menu is full of interesting dishes. Loved the plum butter on the crusty bread. The selections were plentiful and most made with local fish. The snapper with Israeli couscous & spinach in a creamy sauce was outstanding! Next trip to Key West will indeed include another dinner at Little Pearl!
