Celebrating our ‘baby moon’ in Key West. The most quaint little restaurant with service that is outstanding! And the food is top notch. Best seafood we have eaten on any vacation before. My recommendation would be the wahoo. Will definitely be coming back!
The restroom in that restaurant is horrid. This is my second visit. First visit all the food was good but Wahoo was overcooked. The unisex bathroom is a nightmare with the wet floor and smell is disgusting. And it opens directly onto the dining room. Ladies would appreciate their own restroom ... PLEASE. this is a fine dining establishment not an outdoor bar bq.
Excellent dinner, one of the finest dinners in Key West, no question. As the restaurant filled up it became difficult to have a cross table conversation due to loud buzz of many conversations.
We would go back because of the quality of the meal but hope that the owners step up and help reduce the noise with some type of ceiling sound abatement.
Great food and service. Nice wine selection. Off the beaten path. This is not your touristic kind of place. This is so charming and loving place so far classy.
I would say my best choice during our stay in KW.
Enjoyed the Conch Chowder and Barbera was very smooth.
My wife loved her seafood pot pie!!!
As usual, excellent food, service and wine list. A must for anyone who appreciates great food and service
Service at Little Pearl was, if anything, too fast. We had a glass of wine, appetizer, main course, and dessert, and we were in and out in an hour.
It seemed a bit rushed, and although I would prefer too fast to too slow, I would have loved to linger just a tad longer.
That being said, we loved our server (Ryan), the food, and the ambiance.
Great restaurant, just wish we could have stayed a while.
We were on vacation and due to good reviews wanted to try Little Pearl. It is in a small space and very cozy. The service was impeccable. The food was so outstanding. Our serve described every dish so well..perfectly to every flavor. We were all extremely delighted with the flavors and high quality of the food.
good food (octopus was good, cooked perfectly but too saucy, scallops too salty). escargots very good. location in residential area with view of the street, and small restaurant with very close tables does not help ambiance. fairly priced.
Food was outstanding and our waiter was absolutely fantastic - highly recommend!
The food and service was amazing! We will be back!
The scallops and swordfish entrees were wonderful! I absolutely loved the baked oysters! Very nice homey feeling . Definitely get reservations or there’s a two hour wait!
I would only recommend this to a friend that does not have food allergies or food intolerances. The “people” in control do not allow any types of substitutes because “it ruins the integrity of the dish”. So as long as you’re okay eating it the way it comes on the menu exactly, you will love this place. It is absolutely gorgeous inside. The diners were all very happy enjoying the food, drink and ambiance. My fish also unfortunately tasted like some type of preservative that I taste on shrimp sometimes. Wish I knew what that taste is, it’s like a bleach flavor. I does not agree with me. I’m thinking it happens at the fish market or dock. I would like to think restaurants have the integrity not to put preservatives on their fish.
Best two fish dishes we've ever eaten. My wife had the Swordfish and I had the Snapper. Delicious!!! The Snapper melted in your mouth. The Swordfish was to die for!! And we started it with the amazing Octopus, Num Num!!! We are food snobs and searched high and low around Key West for the best local Seafood. Seeing mixed reviews of several places, we asked at Key West Fish and Chips (highly recommend them too) and were told about the Little Pearl. We got a 9:30 Monday night table and while we waited, enjoyed a glass of wine. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. Impressed we were very much! If you love fresh fish and are in Key West, this is a must eat. It is a small quaint and romantic place, so make a reservation and prepare your taste buds for maximum ecstasy.
The fish at this restaurant was fabulous. The restaurant is away from the waterfront, so less touristy. However, the vibe is upbeat with lots of locals eating here. Great value for the quality of the food. The wait staff is very knowledgeable about the food and making recommendations. The wine list is fairly short but well curated across different price points.
The octopus was unbelievable. My Wahoo was done to perfection
Awesome!! Great food and atmosphere.
The food and service was fabulous!!
We enjoyed ourselves. Food was very good service was excellent.
2 items were not on the menu with no substitute. This made the selection limited.
We would call ahead next time about menu.
Petit restaurant dans Key West excentré de Duval Street, nous quittons donc le tourisme de masse. Serveur adorable, de très bon conseil et prévenant.
Ceviche épicé en entrée délicieux, crevettes du Golfe tout autant, poisson aussi.
Sauvignon californien sans beaucoup de corps, dommage.
Penser à bien réserver.
We were pleased with the menu options...including our selections: the yellowtail snapper was extraordinary, as was the seafood pot pie. Our 11-year old was quite pleased with his bucatini with red sauce. It was simple, but delicious! Our wine was outstanding: by-the-glass-, but definitely freshly opened. Above all, the service was exemplary! We definitely recommend it! It's a very welcoming place.
Another seafood winner in Key West. We enjoyed our tuna au poive immensely. Perfectly seared and burgundy colored inside with a delicious sauce. A+
Outstanding seafood, small abd noisy. Still, should go back
Best shrimp and grits- not just in the keys- but anywhere !!!!
I am a regular at Little Pearl. My favorite Key West restaurant. The best seafood ever, combined with a friendly, high service staff!! Thanks for another great meal and evening
Fantastic! Dreams come true for local fish, exceptional cooking and great service.
A real gem, with a great menu and a welcoming staff. Local fish dishes can’t be beat.
Best restaurant in Key West!
Small charming restaurant with excellent food. We will definitely be returning on our next trip to Key West.
The food was excellent and prepared just right. The place is small so you are sharing your KW experiences with your nearest dinner table but that does not distract from the dining.
Absolutely fabulous. Fresh. Creative. Can’t speak enough about the food - a serious find. Some of the best escargot I’ve ever had... and I order it just about anytime it is on a menu. Just note they do not sell liquor. Beer and wine only.
This was probably the best place for dinner in Key West!! Must try...
it was indeed a good restaurant and food was excellent! great server too.
Our service was excellent, however we were disappointed in the food, which we have eaten there before. It was not as good as we have eaten there in the past. :0(
We loved the restaurant. We stayed at Chelsea house hotel, and the restaurant was just a half block away, so we could see it from our balcony. What a neighborhood gem. Food was excellent. I hade the Scallops with the corn puree. I have never thought that combination would go together. The flavor profile for the whole night was excellent. Seasoning was perfect. Service was exceptional. The only thing that I had to get used to was that we felt that it was a little cramped. Would have liked a little more space. If we co to Key West again I will definitely dine there again.
Quaint. Excellent service. Well prepared and executed seafood dishes. Exquisite! Not many other options if not interested in seafood. No soft drinks available except iced tea (does not have a full service bar).
All around great place!
Excellent seafood preparations; attentive and responsive service in a cozy quiet setting.
Great dinner! Service was attentive. We started with civiche and octopus, entrees were snapper and swordfish, and finished with poached pear. Will definitely return on our next visit to Key West.
We dined here for my birthday. I had the Wahoo and my husband had the Pot Pie. Both were delicious. For starters we had the Escargot in a large puff pastry. Beautiful presentation and tasty. We also had the octopus. Tender. Ryan was our waiter - very attentive and knowledgeable. Can't wait to go back!
