Wonderful tasting menu and best meal we had in Key West. Highly recommend.
One of the most memorable dining experiences in Key West! Everything was amazing!
Outstanding food; outstanding service. The best experience since Pre Covid. The best Grouper in history!
Wonderful food!! Our favorite in KW!
The Little Pearl was an amazing experience, from the exceptional meal to the service. I will be back.
We were visiting Key West from New Orleans for my boyfriend’s birthday. He’s a chef and I’ve been in the service industry for almost a decade so we came in with high expectations for this place. The 4 course chef’s tasting menu and the service fully delivered. Dan was outstanding and everything we got was on point. Hands down best scallops I’ve ever had. Little Pearl is a must for anyone visiting
I absolutely love the new tasting menu format at Little Pearl. Such variety and so many tasty bites. If you are lucky enough to have the scallops, consider yourself lucky!
From Tamara: Little Pearl is an absolute MUST when we visit Key West! I cannot think of anything that wasn’t stellar. The service, ambiance and food is worth every penny. It is truly an experience when you dine here. A Beautiful dining experience! We love this “little pearl” and you will too!
Ps...I literally wanted to lick the plate after every course!
From Jake: It was truly fabulous! Can’t wait till next time!
The best restaurant, service, chef and tasting menu - we were delighted!
Of all the restaurants we visited during our trip to Key West, Little Pearl was our absolute favorite. The restaurant was offering a 4 course menu and each was outstanding. Everything was extremely fresh and prepared to perfection. Get the stone crab, swordfish poke and chili crisp & coconut ice cream, and you will not be disappointed. The waitstaff was very friendly and ensured that were well taken care of and pleased throughout the meal. They definitely made us feel special! Add all of this to the amazing ambiance and it's the perfect date night location. I highly, highly recommend dining at Little Pearl.
Can’t say enough about the food & service! If you want something special this is the place. Not fancy, just real. Great sampling 4 course menu, very special people!
very cozy spot, intimate, food was very basic, small small portions, extremely overpriced, not a place I want to go back to
We were in Key West on surprise birthday vacation for my boyfriend. We had reservations and was seated promptly. Everything from
service to the delicious food was top-notch !! My boyfriend enjoyed his food so much he had to send compliments to the chef !
Wish we could stick around to experience the weekly menu changes. Highly recommend 10/10 !
Great place! Delicious food, great wines! Perfect service. Would love to come back.
Amazing food, excellent service. A true gem!
Great job dealing with Covid...In fact, I like the distance between tables as it was too crowded in its small space before now. Very good food. Pleasant service. Wish they sold more than just wine; but, it is what it is. Better this year than last.
We always enjoy an evening at Little Pearl. The pivot to do a "POP UP" is so perfect giving you 3 exquisite choices in each category. If you love your food to have AH-mazing flavor, then Little Pearl is your jam!
This is a small place a few blocks off of Duval street, and they do a 4 course chef's menu that changes monthly. YOu get a choice of 3 items for each course, and everything is fantastic.
They do 3 seatings, so reservations are a must. It was $70 / person for the 4 course meal and well worth it. A true fine dining experience.
It would be hard to come up with enough superlatives to describe our meal at Little Pearl. From the first bite to the last everything was perfect. The tasting menu was such a treat and allowed us to try so many delicious and inventive dishes. Our server was informative and efficient. One of the best meals I have ever eaten in my life. Do not miss this restaurant.
We had a fantastic meal from their Thai-inspired tasting menu. The food was excellent, and every person on the team was knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. The scallops were exceptional! And who doesn’t commend a restaurant with vermentino on the wine list! Many thanks to Little Pearl for a great, memorable meal. Empty plates at dessert!
It was good but we've had better meals at Little Pearl.
Stone crab seemed old. King crab had way too much cracked black pepper in it. The King crab was very good after I scraped the black pepper off. Fish was undercooked. The salad, cheese course, dessert was very good. I sure we will go back.
Outstanding food and service. Truly one of the island’s best restaurants. The tasting menu is wonderful, offering plenty of choices tor every palette. The owner/manager is very hands on which helps to make this place special.
Delicious food, but portion sizes are small, even for a tasting menu. And it is a miss not to have an optional wine pairing with courses at this wine-focused restaurant.
Amazing food!!! One of the best restaurants in Key West!
Again, Little Pearl knocks it out of the park with their “Pop- up menu.” Totally different from the one I enjoyed 3 weeks ago. Yummy from start to finish. Shout out to Dan for great service.
Amazing as always! This is Key West's best restaurant. And I say this as a local who's tried most of them many times.
Delicious food and excellent service. We enjoyed everything on the tasting menu. Wonderful spot for fresh seafood!
The restaurant is quaint and cozy and the staff was attentive to our needs. I made the reservations based on other reviews and we were expecting to be wowed by the food. We began with the Ceviche appetizer which was flavorful and had a nice presentation. We were off to a good start! We were choosing our meals from the Chef's tasting menu and three of us chose the Frisee salad and one chose the Salmon. The salmon was well received but when we ate the salad we were all greeted by a crunch of sand in the lettuce leaves that permeated the rest of the salad. We addressed this with our server and the manager came over and told us that it was supposed to be that way and that was just the crunch of the lettuce. I've eaten frisee before and we live at the beach so I know what sand tastes like. None of us finished our salad and moved to our next course. For our second course we all chose the king crab and it was delicious. For course three, all but one chose the fresh catch which was also very good. The other chose the duck which he described as OK. for the final course we all chose the Miso bananas foster my favorite) it is was very good. Portions sizes were a bit small for the price but the wine selection was very good. Not a bad meal overall (other than the salad) but competition is steep in Key West and we had several other meals after this one that knocked our socks off.
Their new menu selections are great. However I've never had a bad meal at little Pearl.
This meal felt special from beginning to end; it’s in the middle of a particularly hard time and so it felt wonderful to be able to help such a small restaurant that was obviously trying to do so much beautiful work in the art of food and feeding more than just our bellies. From the moment we walked in it was a beautiful experience in being nurtured through flavor and the sense of taste and sight and smell. I cannot be grateful enough for this dining experience, and I will return to the Little Pearl on my next trip!
Hidden gem in Key West. We Felt like we were in Europe from the set menu to the intimate cozy setting. Impeccable service.
Amazing and highly recommended!!!
It was amazing
This was a really fun experience. Everyone serving here is great! Personality and thoughtfulness was a huge component to their excellent service. The four course menu is a lot of fun. We made sure to select different choice at each course so we could experience more tastings. The price is fair for the four courses. I would have liked to have more complex flavor development in each course...but then again, we wouldn’t be at this price point. We would definitely go again! The experience was worth it!
Love the tasting menu!
Over rated for what was delivered. It seems to be a very popular though.
My daughter and I are in key west and this was the first place she wanted to eat. Great food that you would ever taste in Tn.
