    In Key West for a couple of days with my wife and daughter and sought out this restaurant. Was not disappointed. We arrived early however the rain had passed and we sat outside until our table was ready with a nice Albariño to start. The menu is a 4 course taster menu with “add ons” we had 6 Maine oysters to start. Beautiful, could have ate them all night! There was 3 choices per course so two of us had the lobster sushi in a soy broth and wife had “ham and eggs” both fantastic, although both lobster dishes were “cooked” differently.l, all good. Then we had calamari x 2 and lobster parcel with an Asian feel, again lovely. Our mains, wife and daughter had lobster pie, lobster in a rich sauce with vegetables and pastry top. I went with the Gruber, succulent, fleshy and lovely trimmings. Finished off with 2 cheeseboards and 1 donut with “lobster toffee sauce” and a honey sauce. The lobster toffee had a salty caramel taste which was unique. Drinks wise, a bottle of Paco and Lola Alberino, a small bottle of Sake (to go with my seafood!) and a port (to go with my cheese!). All in all $360 plus tip so it’s not cheap however, the ambience, service and food made it worthwhile. A special treat. I also learned a new fact from one of the other diners, South Carolina is the largest consumers of Grand Marnier in the world 🤷‍♂️ My advice is to book the little Pearl as a special treat in your holiday, you won’t be disappointed.

    Our third time to Little Pearl, the first two we really enjoyed our meal. This time we felt the meal/selections weren't as strong as our prior visits. Perhaps simply due to what was available/fresh that day from the suppliers. Service was excellent as usual and we will definitely be back.

    Little Pearl? How about ‘Amazing Gem’? We read the reviews and had high hopes yet frankly we were not expecting to have such an amazing culinary experience here in Key West. Thank you, thank you! Staff were friendly, efficient, knowledgeable and also apologetic as the ac was not working for the first part of the meal. The food was exceptional, it was complex with many layers of flavors with many fresh local offerings. Thankfully, the portions were not too large as we couldn’t resist the ordering some of the Raw Bar offerings and the three courses + dessert was a lot of food and very filling. Some great sake choices too. Definitely not to be missed for those who are looking for high quality interesting food (yes- foodies/gourmet) in a casual, friendly and professional environment.

    We had the tasting menu, which has varied and interesting choices. Portions are small, but the plates are beautifully presented and the meals well prepared. The only item I didn't like was the goat ramen. The goat pieces were small and tough, and there buts if bone here and there - to be expected you have had goat before. That in and of itself did not ruin the dish for me. What did however, was biting into several pieces of hard star anise. Star anise can be overpowering to a dish if not used judiciously. I have seen used to flavor broths, but it is usually strained out before serving. Otherwise, it can be overwhelming if you bite into it. Aside from that, the dishes were flavorful and creative, and the experience worth the price.
