The hostess was HORRIBLE. We came in didn’t greet us but asked for our proof of vaccination almost screaming. We showed it and she didn’t even looked at it. Nobody can check an ID, a vaccine card and dates in one second. However, our waiter (David) was great! He made the entire experience much better! Food was good as usual.
This was my 3rd visit and each time the food was great, the service was great and the ambience was great. I recommend it for foodies and families alike.
We were visiting D.C. and a local recommended we go to Pearl Dive for my daughter's 16th birthday celebration. The food was delicious. Cam was a great server; he was very personable and attentive. I would definitely go back.
Incredible service and food equally as good. The blackened shrimp are out of sight.
Great service. Very good food. I buoyed the vibe of the place. Would definitely return.
Good food. Wonderful service.
Storm was a very good and knowledgeable server. Great suggestion from the receptionist on the mussels.
Well you come for oysters...and more. We had a mix of 5 different types of oysters on the half shell and they were excellent. The grilled rockfish was suggested and we each had that. Again perfect!! You have to try this place!! This restaurant does not disappoint!!
Always a great visit to Pearl Dive. Whenever we visit DC, it’s a must do! David was our server and Eddie was our bartender…we had the best time. A special shout out to Abduli who has been a consistent member of the Pearl Dive team for many years - great to see a familiar face. Thanks everyone for the food and drink suggestions, on point! Looking forward to our next dining experience at Pearl Dive!
David was our server and was amazing. He was so knowledgeable about the menu and guided our choices. We did the oysters Rockefeller, followed by clam
Chowder and shrimp and grits. Cute room In a charming neighborhood.
Delicious oysters and fish entrée. Friendly and efficient service. We love wine at half price Wednesdays.
One is my favorites! I am hoping that one day the menu options will be expanded a bit but the food is good
The only thing better than Amanda's excellent service and recommendations was the food itself. We went through four courses and we'd order it all again. Thanks to Amanda for being so attentive and helping us navigate the many choices available. And a shout out to whoever manages the wine program: a long and extensive list of champagnes to complement the oysters. What a great evening--we'll certainly be back.
David is amazing! He was kind, knowledgeable and such a great person. He really made our visit extraordinary and will definitely come back to see him! Loved the raw oysters, champagne and all the specials.
We were here to celebrate my birthday and I gotta tell you this place exceeded my expectations. The oysters were the absolute best and I would recommend this place 100 times over. The staff was very attentive and knowledgeable about the food!
Excellent food and great recommendations from our server.
That was awesome. Nice place and the sea food specially oysters are so fresh and delicious. Would recommend
Server was very helpful. Everyone was nice. Excellent food
Exceptionally warm and upbeat staff! Fresh and delicious food!
The and drinks were great!!! Wonderful place for date night and getting together with friends.
Great spot. Not pretentious but high quality food, cocktails, and service.
Always love this place. Missed my favorite server David but still a good time.
Such an attentive staff!!!!!!
Our server was absolutely amazing and the food was delicious!! Highly recommend!
Second night of our vacation in DC, decided we should have some seafood, Pearl Dive looked good by the description on OT and their website, glad I booked the reservation. The raw oysters were outstanding, the cooked both fried and baked were great, the wine list by the glass, was limited but well chosen. Service was great. Catfish was super tasty. Highly recommended
We loved everything about our dinner at Pearl Dive Oyster! It was highly recommended and, for once, the recommendation was well deserved!
Delicious oysters, excellent wine (half price on Wednesday night). What the cats dream of never disappoints. Good service. Too noisy.
It was wonderful! ALL of it! Our waitress was excellent, our food was excellent, the ambience was excellent!
Started with the Oysters Rockefeller and they were to die for. Next up, the mussels, which were exceptionally good - dip the bread in the sauce, you won't be sorry! For main courses my husband had the Ponchartrain, and it was the bomb. I had the shrimp po'boy, which honestly, was just meh. Would not get again. Substituted fries for braised collard greens, and that was the best decision - smoky and just a little spicy, with bacon. Amazing! Our waitress was sweet, but she was busy and forgot a drink order and to put our main dish orders in - which resulted in us being there another hour longer than we had expected. BUT, she was apologetic, and took a glass of champagne off the bill for the wait. We'll definitely go back.
Food was excellent and our server was really friendly.
Great food and incredible service from Storm.
The chowder was probably the best I’ve had.
The cornmeal-crusted oysters melted in my mouth leaving a nice crunch behind. Amazing greens.
Great dinner!! If you like oysters.. this is your place!!
Our server was an absolute delight and made the experience fun and exciting.
5 out of 6 oysters were incredible. Service was super friendly but a little hit and miss, overall very good. Fun atmosphere.
My husband thoroughly enjoyed the oysters he got and I loved the shrimp and grits.
I love this place. Storm is hands down the best waiter in the business. His energy, customer service and knowledge is second to none. His recommendations did not disappoint in the slightest. The best food I’ve had in a while. Can’t wait to come back.
Server was awesome. Was always on top of it and never felt awkward long lulls between courses. Super energetic and clearly enjoyed the environment.
Every time I travel from Alaska to DC I try to eat here. Good food, great oysters, excellent cocktails, and homey atmosphere make this a great place.
I haven’t been wow’ed in a while in the DC foodie scene all across the board. The restaurant was clean the hostess greeted us immediately! The food was phenomenal and our server was attentive and very nice. The raw oysters were sensational! Very tasty, along with the Chips and Seafood with tomatoes and avocado. I cannot remember the name but that was very good! The noise level was great and the drinks were also amazing. I have a sweet tooth but the Key Lime Pie was a little too sweet for me. My kids got a scoop of guava sorbet and that was delish! I would definitely come back! Without the kids looks like a nice place to meet others.
