    My family and I had dinner at Pearl Brasserie for our final night and Dublin and I am not exaggerating in praising the service, food, and ambiance of this restaurant. Over our trip in UK and Ireland, we went to approximately 10 different places to dine and Pearl Brasserie was the number ONE in our ranking of restaurants. We had the six-course tasting menu which I cannot recommend enough. The food was exceptional and each course featured a wonderful blend of flavor and texture. Coupled with the phenomenal food was the attentive service. Hosts and servers were fantastic and truly brought a new level to our dining experience. Overall, Pearl Brasserie is an incredible dining experience and I would enthusiastically recommend it for anyone traveling to Dublin.

    We booked dinner on a whim after driving past the restaurant. It was delightful from start to finish. The service was flawlessly professional and polished but friendly too. The food was divine. The decor really beautiful but the atmosphere wasn't stuffy. 10/10 will definitely return

    Lovely venue, food good, not outstanding as expected more as say Michelin. Staff very friendly, and lots of them, but not always in synch (was asked if we had order drinks when we had) and couldn't do an off menu cocktail, waiting staff were not too knowledgeable with wine pairings and unsure of sommelier was available. Good menu. Great evening was had.

    Food was fine rather than wonderful, service was unacceptable - main course only served after query made when 45 minutes had passed since the starter plates were cleared - apology accompanied by a statement that a sorbet was an apology for the delay……except we were not told that when the sorbet arrived….. stuttering apologies from 3 staff members were not enough - I wonder whether our table was treated like this because we are not regulars - and we certainly won’t be now!

    We were a group of 6 friends celebrating our 50th birthdays from the UK. The staff could not have been more attentive and kind, and certainly not overbearing in any way. The food was delicious and we thought that the price very reasonable for a tasting menu. A very pleasant night out. Thank you.

    Tasteless starter that was allegedly spicy. Main course of lamb was delicious but portion small. Accompanying elements stodgy cheese plate dull. Overall an expensive and poor experience. Thankfully the company was good.

    Had a wonderful evening. Staff impressive, very attentive and friendly. The food is very well cooked and well presented. The tuna tartare was delicious. The steak was melt in the mouth with an extremely good wild mushroom sauce. Extremely good wine menu. Too full for dessert! Will definitely return for a treat.

    I thought I could experience something like Michelin star dinning, but apparently it wasn’t at all, I ordered the tasting menu, which is supposed to be their best, but the food was just ok, presentation was so so, and the desserts turned to be a disaster, blue cheese and green cheese? Come on, any fine dinning shouldn’t just bring some stuff bought from a super market, and the taste of them were very strong, I admit I am not a cheese person, but you don’t just assume anyone can tolerant this kind of strong taste and smell. Service wise, most of the servers were very unknowledgeable and couldn’t even explain what in the dishes, for instance, a cod dish with sides was presented by my server as “cod”, that was it, no explanation on the sauce or whatever, I feel so disappointed for the price I paid in, anyway, I don’t think this restaurant is up to the standard of Michelin recommended, at best an average restaurant in town.

    We had an amazing meal here on Saturday 21st May 2022. On arrival the maitre d was very attentive, friendly and considerate as one of the party had just been through foot surgery and required the assistance of a wheelchair. The maitre d looked after the storage of this and seated us at a table that suited our additional needs. The food was flawless. Staff were very friendly and attentive, but the only down side was that a member of our party had to ask our assigned waitress if there were any specials on that evening as we were not told once we were handed the a la carte menu. Apart form that we had an amazing meal and will definitely return in the future.
