    Lovely staff, but food was disappointing we tried foie gras, tuna tartare and the pear Roquefort so a good section of starters ..winner was foie gras and others only grand ..the squab pigeon was excellent, turbot was not good (actually my husband described it as mushy )and my cod was fine ..the sides was awful and not eaten ..we were with friends and having a lovely evening so weren’t up for complaining ..we wouldn’t be in a rush back or to recommend and that is unfortunate as I’ve very fond memories of Pearl

    I choose Pearl for a catch up lunch with a very good friend and it was absolutely perfect in every way. A wonderful welcome at the door and my favourite table reserved. Professional and gracious staff talked through the menus to identify GF dishes for my friend. Each plate was delicious with just the right amount of time between courses. Topped off with a lovely New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and dainty petit fours, we both agreed it was the best lunch in ages! Can't wait to return.

    Nice place, a little deceiving ambiance. The volute arched intimate table s are very few. I would say at best they have two or three of them. The rest of the seating is very basic. Everyone one is very professional and friendly. Our server Jessica was lovely. We got there early and it was very quite, by 7:30 the place was full. Food was good. We orders 3 starters and one entree and shared everything. Because we shared everything, they didn’t seem to know what to do with us. They brought out all three starters at the same time and our little table couldn’t handle it. Nice presentation and flavors. Very French inspired. In the future I would ask them to bring out each dish one at a time. Great wine list.

    What a wonderful dining experience, every part of the evening from the wonderful food to the excellent professional staff made it a memorable night. This was my first visit so I had no expectations other than it would be a good restaurant , it is more than that, it is excellent and I will be returning many times. The food is beautifully prepared and presented , with the right amount of time between courses , the staff are professional , courteous and friendly a combination all too sadly missing in many restaurants. The wine list offers a wide and varied choice . The restaurant is in a basement that has a high ceiling so you do not feel enclosed , their are cozy booths and more open tables with a great aquarium that catches the eye.

    We chose the Pearl Brasserie to celebrate our engagement with some close friends and it was perfect. We were given a beautiful table in an area to ourselves, the service was impeccable and the food was as delicious as ever. The restaurant is also in an excellent location in town. I couldn’t recommend the Pearl Brasserie highly enough and it is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.

    I arrived as a party of one, rather than two as per my reservation. No issue was made of this on arrival and I was made feel perfectly welcome. I ordered the prawn starter and Turbot main. While the prawns were fresh, sweet and perfectly cooked the highlight of the dish was the lightly pickled bean salad. It was excellent against the sweet prawns in filo and mango dressing/purée. The Turbot filet was a beautifully squared and satisfyingly thick cut. The purée, which I believe was celeriac but wasn’t mentioned so the menu, was a real winner. The octopus and warm potato salad were aesthetically beautiful and there was the added bonus of some salty roe in the sales. However, the salsa verde and purée complimented the Turbot perfectly and made dish memorable on their own. I’ll be back!

    We had not dined in Pearl for a number of years ( Covid restrictions etc) Prior to that we visited it a few times a year. The restaurant has maintained its status as an excellent location for comfortable dinner with friends- food selection that will appeal to most, well spaced tables with noise level excellent , staff friendly but not intrusive and overall value for money. We will be back before year end!

    Superb tasting menu. I would suggest that after the cheese course they have a sorbet and the cheese is so strong that you can taste the flavours of the dessert. The service was superb as was the food. Thank you.

    This was an amazing evening and not to brag, but we have dined in many Michelin starred restaurants from Peru, to Japan, to France, Germany and Spain. The waitstaff were spot on, attentive but almost invisible. The food (we chose the secret menu) was impeccable and their French Sommelier was knowledgeable and delightful. As we used to live in Brittany, where she is from, that added to the evening. I would highly recommend this place and when I come back to Dublin, I will definitely come back here.

    Great restaurant, - one little thing, had scallops for main course, they were covered and overpowered by too much sauce. As always, enjoyed our dinner, and look forward to returning.
