I was very surprised with the food this weekend. We were staying at the oyster point and decided to dine in the restaurant.

The server was very professional. But… The bread tasted like it was three days old. The fish was overcooked, so were the vegetables… Everything did not live up to the standards that it should have in the past. Maybe it was a bad night? Maybe there was a new chef? I’m not sure ,but the next night I went to Pazzos instead. Very disappointing.

Very disappointing. I wanted to try this restaurant. I made a reservation through Opentable to take my daughter to lunch and the restaurant was closed when we arrived. No notification sent to tell us the place would be closed. Poor management.

Our server was excellent, very friendly, courteous and professional.
Soup was luke warm
portions were a tad on the small side, esp for a salad that is supposed to be the main meal
Crab cake had too much filler
expected much better for this caliber restaurant

The Pearl at Oyster Point delights me every single time I visit, which has been for over a decade now. Whether there for just a drink at the bar or a meal in the beautiful dining room, they have the “best kept secret” water views along the Navesink River in my opinion. And the service and food are always impeccable as well.

All very nice, calm, and spacious seating which felt safe. Service was great. Swordfish and salmon were delicious. Only negative was the Christmas salad which was terrible, simply put.

Food was excellent from presentation to flavors and temperature. Salads with crabcake on one and chicken on the other were bright crisp and fresh.
The burger was flavorful and to perfect temp and the fries were delightfully crispy on the outside, fluffy and hot on the inside. The view of the water is beautiful with geese and ducks swimming by. Idyllic. Peter is a wonderfully attentive server, friendly, efficient and not missing a beat even as the room filled. We will return again and again

Service was not good. Restaurant wasn't even full and they wouldn't give us a table by the scenic windows. Placed us near the parking lot window. I will not go back.

Lovely river views provided excellent ambience for our lunch. The Holiday Menu was diverse and imaginative. We started off with selections from the unique Bloody Mary menu. Their Ultimate Bloody Mary was just like having an appetizer. Our meals were well presented. My short ribs sandwich was very tasty and my partner enjoyed his egg dish selection. Would highly recommend this restaurant for lunch. MB

Food was excellent, and our server, Chris was very attentive, but very busy too so service was slow, but not his fault. The appetizer, entree and dessert were all top notch. I recommend the Brie bites, for appetizer.

The service was slow. Because this is a location people go to on a nice day, I’m thinking it was more crowed on the terrace than usual. But waited 30 minutes for our lunch to arrive.

The service and wait staff were absolutely wonderful! Unfortunately, the food was inedible. Hopefully the kitchen was just having an very very off day. There are a plethora of spectacular restaurants in the area, so we won’t be going back.

Food was inconsistent- burger very tasty, baked oysters totally dried out, like a rock. Servers were trying their best, but hampered by slow kitchen, or lack of overall help.

Dinner took a total of 2 and a half hours, for a simple dinner of soups and salads and burgers. Not very satisfactory.

Our meal at the Pearl was very good. Although the kitchen was extremely busy and our food took a long time to come out, we were not in a hurry to eat since it was a birthday dinner. My husband had the burger which he said was the best he has ever had. My daughter and future son in law liked their meal and I had the blue crab ravioli which had what I describe as an arrabbiata sauce.( Very spicy but delicious!)
We ended the meal with gelato, frozen key lime pie and the chocolate peanut butter cake. Everyone loved their dessert! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good food and doesn't mind waiting. Our server was excellent too!
