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!

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!

Usually outstanding and gets a COVID pass, but the prix fixe menu was not the same experience as we normally get. One course was incomplete due to lack of ingredient and they did not have a torch for the crème brûlée. I would go back, but this particular time was disappointing.

Little Pearl is a cute little restaurant with little choices, little portions, and a little chance of us going back. Food did not wow us. We think restaurants that serve little portions should make up for it with amazing flavors, not so much here. We left hungry and as we say in Spanish it was also, “Caro por gusto”.

Been to Little Pearl several times. It is on of our favorites! The COVID Pre-fixed Menu is just as fantastic as the full menu. We also just heard the owners are opening a new restaurant in Asheville. We will definitely be trying it on our next trip there.

The food was excellent. A solid protocol for covid is in place including temperature checks
Was surprised at the fixed menu but not disappointed at all with the selection and quality of the food. Followed up by having lunch at their sister restaurant. Service and oysters were excellent. Thanks

We really enjoyed our date at Little Pearl. They were very good about social distancing and scanned our foreheads before we entered the restaurant. The food was excellent. Plenty of seafood in the soup. Very good salad. Entrees of Snapper and Swordfish were excellent, although I thought the portions were small. Desserts were also excellent. Great cheese plate. We had a great time and would definitely go back.
