                                Over the the food and service was excellent. The waitress went out of her way to offer friendly and efficient service. I was somewhat disappointed with the gluten free options on the menu. I had noted in my booking that it my daughter’s graduation and she was gluten intolerant. When we arrived we were told that only one starter and main course were GF. This is disappointing given it was a special occasion for her. I would have appreciated knowing this in advance. Nowadays, top-class restaurants are offering more option for dishes without gluten.

                                Food was great. The service was a little on the poor side ( I understand this is an issue across the industry so take this with a pinch of salt!)

                                Pearl brasserie is one of my favourite restaurants so I was really disappointed on Friday night when the usually high standard of service fell short. It seemed like our waiter had never served a table before. We had to ask for bread which he then forgot to bring, he never enquired if I wanted more drinks, he never brought our petit fours. He spoke more or less exclusively to my husband taking his order first, and making all enquiries with him. Food was really good however so it made up for the poor service but I expected better!

                                We had the 6 course "surprise" tasting menu. Every course was delicious and beautifully presented. The first two courses were served and cleared in a timely fashion, but then long waits began. At least we weren't like another table we could see, who were served the paired wine several minutes after a course arrived. The wine pairings were quite good. The very slow service dragged the entire meal out to 3 hours (when we would probably easily have been finished in 2). This unfortunately colored our evening's experience.

                                We had the tasting menu with wine pairing- the staff were so accommodating we didn't favour the sweet wines and they changed them for more appropriate wines- really appreciated this.

                                All the staff were very welcoming, helpful and efficient. The service was superb and food was excellent. There's nothing that could have been improved on and we had a delightful experience. Thank you and well done!
