Everything was great! This was my second time here. The service was so good; everyone was attentive, friendly, and super knowledgeable, yet not pretentious! We felt welcome and comfortable. The drinks were all fantastic with great, fresh ingredients and perfect ratios. The food was fresh, perfectly seasoned, and nice portions. I’m an eater, but I’m small, so I like to have leftovers, and leftovers I did have, happily. Dessert was great too. We will def be back again.

We love Pearl, everything about it is done very well. The service is amazing and everyone is very personable and professional. Love the food however last night my pork chop was not as amazing as usual. It happens, you can’t taste every meal you serve to your customers….still my favorite restaurant!

Finally made it to Pearl in Island Park on Saturday.
Our reservations were early, we arrived on time and were seated immediately.
We ordered our drinks and the Seared Octopus app, which was tender and cooked just right.
Very tasty. (Sorry, no pic)
For dinner, we ordered the Grilled Pork Chop which was beautifully presented with Hot Cherry Peppers and potatoes. Moist inside with a bit of a char on the outside… I ordered the Veal Chop Special, which was one of the best Veal Chops I’ve had.
We certainly look forward to going back and experiencing the new Pearl, as they begin their new venture with new management.

Simply spectacular. What a great vibe, Chef Michael’s work is outstanding, and everyone in the place was having a great time. The new owner has stepped it up, if that’s possible. Don’t miss this one. Best meal of the year!

Pearl has been a place we've been meaning to go to since it opened finally making it this Friday evening and quite glad we did. The reviews have been good and this one should add to the positive vibe as the food and service were very good. We were a party of four and everyone was quite happy with their meals. I will describe a fresh and beautifully presented shrimp cocktail accompanied with a nicely piquant sauce and plump jumbo shrimp. For an entre I went with a grilled veal chop that was perfectly cooked and ooooh so tender and juicy really good and highly recommend to any carnivore. My son-in-law and I shared so we could try each others entrees and he had the sea bass, again perfectly cooked and "fresh" served with a compliment of asparagus and roasted potato which were perfect for the dishes. My wife and daughter shared the skirt steak and they too were very happy and loved their dish. Overall a very nice experience in dining and a welcome addition to the restaurant repertoire on long island. Will definitely be back.

My husband and I went there for dinner tonight and it was awesome! We started with the Thai Ribs my husband has the rigatoni and I had the chicken entree. It all was amazing! The owner even swung by to say hello!

No qualms about anything, except ones food item. Though the sauce was excellent, the grilled halibut itself(two of the four mains) was over cooked. It is an unforgiving fish and it should have been poached or done on gentler heat. Since this is a fish centric place, a great disappointment. Otherwise a lovely meal. Tricolor salad with the best burrata in a long time.

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary which I indicated on OpenTable. We were seated and greeted with a complementary glass of champagne by our awesome server Amanda. She was knowledgeable and friendly and made us feel special. The food was equally amazing we will definitely be back.

So glad we chose to make Pearl our anniversary dinner restaurant. The staff was very courteous and friendly. We were given a complementary drink. The food was exquisite. We shared meatballs for appetizer which were excellent and my husband had calamari ala plancha, for dinner my husband had sword fish with asparagus, I had Mahi Mahi with carrots and potatoes. Both dishes were delicious. Ended with Greek yoghurt with honey and candied pistachios, and he had ice cream. Will definitely come back again.

Overall a lovely experience but there was a few red flags. The halibut was delicious, but my husbands skirt steak was stringy. We sat by the open door that led to outside dining, so I had to leave my jacket on and it was chilly. The music towards the end of evening was getting louder snd louder, difficult to dine snd talk with loud music.

Nice corner table…very average bread…lovely cocktails and wine…excellent Caesar salad… Halibut was wonderful, as were the lamb chops and the skirt steak. The salmon was OK. The Apple Cobbler was saved by the ice cream. Waiter was terrific! Parking attendant was great.

Our first time dining at Pearl, from the valet to the dessert, it was an exceptional experience. We will definitely return and recommend. Not necessarily a diamond in the rough, but for sure a shiny pearl in the shell of all possible eatery choices. Thank you for a great meal and evening.
