Horrible. Server disappeared for at least half an hour in the middle of dinner. Had to flag down other employees to get drinks ordered. Barely an apology. Food quality subpar. Could not have been more disappointed in this restaurant.

Food was outstanding. Service was good, could use a little better attention to details to be excellent e.g table set properly, taking dirty knives off salad plate and putting back on table, checking in more than once...nothing terrible, just not outstanding.

I frequently dine at Pearl and always have excellent experiences. Kathy, Hayden and the rest of the staff take good care of me. You send me these requests every time I go, do you ever read them? I would think you would know :-)

Booked table for 8pm, had to wait until 9pm to be seated, then didn’t get any food until 10pm. Had to chase the waitress to bring the wine ordered?

When the food finally arrived the steak was overcooked.

Not a good experience,

Was really good food and the server was great! We had the lobster and the surf and turf. Also their manhattans are 👍🏼. Only thing was when we got there they said it would be 15-20 min wait even with our reservation. Then it was really a 30 min wait... but we weren’t too upset, they were BUSY. the host was very professional and kind

Service was ok since there was only one waiter for 8 tables on a occasion like this. Food quality was a fail. I expected more quality for the food and the garnishing was horrible. Olive Garden does a better job. It’s been a few years since I have been there and the quality of food had gone down. I don’t mind paying for fine dining if the food quality is good. We had scallops and grab cake for entree. Presentation for the scallop was a mature and the size was small and taste was ok. Grab cake seemed like it was a pre packed and just warmed up.

Absolutely outstanding dinner service with a very detailed and charming server. The fresh oysters were delectable. Main entree of filet mignon with a peppercorn sauce was so tender and perfectly seasoned. Let's not forget about the coffee creme brulee and cappuccino at the end. And of course the cocktails were a smash!

My husband and I dined with another couple on Saturday and had wonderful evening! Everything from the moment we walked in the door was perfect… from being seated immediately after checking in, to a corner booth, the food & drinks, and the service. Our server, Katie, was phenomenal, and we will definitely be requesting to be seated in her section when we come back.

Our friends had never been to Pearl, so we were very excited to be able to share the experience and leave them with a great impression.

My husband and I have had great experiences dining at Pearl in the past, and look forward to returning for many more in the future.

Great dining experience overall. Our server was great. The cocktails were delicious. Our menu favorites were the pork belly (WOW! So good!) and the crispy fried oysters (Really yummy). The crab mac was good, no wow factor, but still good. Overall, a great dining experience and would definitely go back.

Pearl is a great venue to entertain. We have been coming for years and have always enjoyed the food. Our friends felt the crab cakes were mediocre, my chicken dish was excellent and appreciated the substitution of broccolini for the mashed potatoes. I was disappointed that the beet salad was taken off the menu. The waiter said it was seasonal, but I believe I've had it all year round. It was things like the beet salad that made this place special. I hope you bring it back. It was one of the reasons I kept on coming back. The other dishes were very good but were on the common side in my opinion. I like the darkened dining room but each table is well lit so we could see the food well. On occasion, it can get noisy and I have a hard time hearing my guests. The wait staff was friendly and professional. The hostess seemed new and not well trained as initially she said our guest was in the bar, but he wasn't. Later she realized that she had seated him already. My wife said that the hostess wasn't there initially and there were a couple people talking there and my wife was told that some one could come soon to help her. Otherwise, Pearl is still a nice place to go for a nice meal.

We had reservations but the restaurant was pretty vacant so we probably didn't need them. Overall it was an OK place to eat.....I would steer clear of their Manhattan. I'm not sure if it was made by a bartender or if it was a bulk dispensed drink. I most likely would not go back.

This was our first visit to the Pearl and won’t be our last. Very convenient location across from the Weston. The restaurant was quite and comfortable. The service was prompt and professional and the food was very good. The chowder was very tasty and the risotto was very well done. We met some friends and appreciated the quiet so we could talk. Thanks for a great lunch.
