    Took a friend here as she had not been before. We both had salads. I had a Caesar with grilled chicken. She had the Chop Chop salad. I found the Caesar dressing lacking and the chicken was just seemingly dropped on top. No attempt at presentation there. We also shared a portion of pommes frites which, while one of their best things, has now gotten to a ridiculous $6. Too much for fries, folks. We passed on the drinks due to the price of the salads. They need to upgrade their offerings a bit and keep their prices in line. I will still likely go there but may try Tina's first.

    We had a group of 7. Waiter was great. Food was great. Really should accept separate checks though. That was the worse part, figuring out how much we individually owed! Other than that, all was great!

    This was my first time dining at Pear St. Bistro. It was a referral. And I we were all pleasantly surprised. Everyone in my party was pleased with their meal and said they would be back. ☺ It wouldn't hurt to add a few more items to the menu tho.

    Service was absolutely awful. Couldn't get our server's attention on multiple occasions, including taking our initial order. Had to ask a bus boy to get drink refills. Predictably, the anger was attentive after we asked for the bill.

    We had reservations for father's day so I expected it to be busy which it was. Our server was nice but we had a few issues with the over all experience. We had no place settings. When she did come over she offered us biscuits and told us our order would be out shortly, but she hadn't taken our order as if yet. I'm not sure if it was her or another server but when she took the orders for the table next to us her butt was basically all on our table. Needless to say I felt a little crowded. The drinks were great and the food was awesome so I'm sure I'll be coming back, maybe I just won't sit in the center seating area.

    Had higher expectations, but found it kinda noisy and chaotic. We got there right as brunch began, and had long waits between orders, drinks, and food even when barely any tables were taken. The place filled up and no one even made a pretense of keeping children from running wild everywhere, and climbing on things. Not what I had hoped for at brunch. The food was good, big amounts, though partially burned.

    We have to your establishment before and we enjoyed our experience. Unfortunately the we went 06/04/17 was when there were a multitude of celebration and the NBA Championship game the noise level was extremely high and could hear our own conversation. No matter, we enjoyed our meal and had great service.

    I had not been to Pear Street in years. So happy, we decided to give it a try. The greeter was friendly. The waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and checked on us without being obnoxious. The food was excellent! We will be going back often. I will also recommend to others.

    My friend and I found the food to be excellent. He had the salmon Benedict and I the steak and eggs. We both had the normal Bloody Mary, but they offered two other upgrade versions of the Bloody Mary. The steak was cooked to perfection, juicy and tasty. The kind of steak that needs no embellishment with A1 or other sauce to taste good. It was served with fresh fruit and home fries. I recommend Pear Street if you are in the area.

    The Pear Street Bistro is a nice restaurant in the heart of Historic Downtown Pinole. It's upscale and has a wide variety in the menu. I would recommend the owner at least consider noise dampening inside the dining areas. When full which it usually is it's very loud. Other than that it's an excellent place for a romantic dinner or gathering for a special dinner with friends and family with excellent service, food and drink options.

    We've been to Pear Street numerous times, because there are not many "fine" dining choices in Pinole, and we enjoy the ambiance, beverage selection, and service, but have not been thrilled with the food. I am always hoping that the food will be better than the last time, given the high prices. (We noticed that nearly all dinner entree prices were raised for Mother's Day.) My entree, a dish consisting of beef strips (supposedly sirloin tips), vegetables, and quinoa was a huge disappointment. The beef was tough and stringy, with little flavor. The fish in my son's fish taco dish was bland, but my husband seemed to like his salmon dish. I have had the chicken and waffles dish as an appetizer in the past, and I should have gone with that as an entree. Overall, I keep hoping for higher quality food.

    I tried the Basa de Medellin and it was good. However my husband had the Cioppino and just thought it was okay. The decor was very interesting and the menu choices gives the restaurant promise. However, if you want a quiet meal though it is not that type of place.

    I enjoy the Pear Street Bistro. The bar is an antique and is special. Young people and a lively crowd makes it all the more special. We enjoyed the menu that is extensive. The Crab cakes are delicious. I'll go out of my way to eat at the Pear Street Bistro, and the prices are very reasonable. Francisco Flores is a wonderful host! This is the nicest establishment in Pinole.

    I'm so happy this place reopened. Their food is beyond great! I have been here plenty of times and have tried numerous dishes. You can't go wrong with anything you order. You can also order a few appetizers for a meal that are always well worth it. They have daily specials/cocktails and you definitely get your money's worth. They don't skimp on anything. Service is also wonderful, very friendly and accomodating servers. I will definitely be a regular:-)

    I've been to Pear Street Bistro before. And the food, and atmosphere was great as always. Unfortunately, the service was not good. And it's only the service of a waiter named Daniel. Every other experience I've had with other wait staff has been great. Daniel has served me and my best friend on two separate occasions, and they have both been less than satisfactory. On Easter Sunday we had to ask for the complimentary biscuits and jam, I was given dirty silverware and Daniel didn't acknowledge me at all. He just took the fork. He very seldom checked on us to see if we needed anything. He seemed to be to preoccupied with drinking at the bar and socializing to notice that my best friend waited 10 minutes before he got her another mimosa. In a previous experience Daniel dropped my cousins credit card. Another patron was kind enough to notice, pick it up and return it. Pear Street Bistro is an amazing place to dine. However, I will request not to be served by Daniel in the future.

    I made a reservation through Open Table ... despite several empty tables of about 45%, Hostess decides to school me by the door in front of people that reservations are SUPPOSED to be made 24 hours in advance. They got my reservations a few minutes earlier in my search for "nearby" restaurants. The restaurant was not even at capacity with 45% of tables unoccupied. We were placed next to a couple of ladies who turned out to be equally disappointed with the service, having had to wait for the refill of their drinks for half an hour until they left without finishing their meal - they were very upset, again, because the restaurant was not that busy at that time. No complaints about the food ... even our waiter, Daniel, turned out to be attentive - the saving grace of the restaurant ... However, Hostess was completely unprofessional and should not be working that kind of a job.

    We hadn't been to PSB in quite a long time and we had friends coming over to go out to dinner so thought maybe we should go here because they had okay vegetarian options for one of our friends - food was good, service was a bit on the slow side (they weren't that busy), servers were all very helpful and friendly, so all in all was okay - will most likely be back -

    Restaurant is located on San Pablo in Pinole. Parking is difficult on Sundays because Catholic Church is around the corner. Food was excellent and our server Jasmine was great. We unfortunately were seated next to a table of 8 EXTREMELY loud guests. Their noise was unrelenting. Mngr said he would talk to them but, never happened. Offered to move us but my 87 year old mother opted not to. Good food, good service, just be careful where you're seated.
