service outstanding. wait staff attentive and knowledgeable regarding menu. my party felt that baked clams and fried calamari were disappointing. the clams were underdone as topping was just bread crumbs with no moisture. the calamari was bit crispy enough. The sauce fir both were great. The grilled halibut (house dish ) did not disappoint. my party enjoyed all the main dishes. while we did not get plan on getting dessert we were thrilled we did. the brownie and bread pudding were outstanding

i've never had a bad experience or meal at Pearl. From apps thru dessert this place doesn't disappoint. The hostess, bartender and waitstaff all make you feel welcome. I highly recommend the Halibut or market fish of the day especially if it Mahi Mahi.

Outstanding!!
From start to finish it was a treat. Service was great. Friendly timely fun. The food was perfect. Oysters were ice cold, meatballs were tender and luscious. Ribeye, Veal Chop and Halibut were flawless. Absolutely delicious.
Can’t wait to go back.

Everything was absolutely amazing! From the minute we walked in and had cocktails at the bar to the time we were escorted to our table and had the freshest oysters and little necks and the most amazing halibut dinner… Kelly and Steph are just amazing

A gem...
Out waiter Carson was exceptional. Attentive, informative and spot on with service. A really nice gentleman. The food was delicious - shrimp cocktail, beet salad, brussel sprouts, halibut, steak, scrumptious desserts for hubby's birthday celebration...roll me out! Lol
The restaurant had plenty of space between tables. Felt very safe with the filtration system...double bonus.
Will definitely make this our go to for special dinner out.

Fortunately the food is very good and so is the service. The place is very contemporary and the bar was very active. The Beet Salad and Mussels with a citrus sauce were very very good. The Halibut was a solid piece and the sauce of potatoes and mushrooms went with is very well. The Ice Cream Pearl Sundae should no the missed.

We ate in the outside area so the only problem was the noise from the cars on Austin Blvd. That did not, however, take away from the food which was delicious. We started with the beet salad and then shared the halibut and the skirt steak. We finished our meal with the blueberry bread pudding. Everything was fresh and well prepared.
Our waitress was friendly and enjoyed her job.
We will definitely be returning.

Restaurant is a beautiful oasis on a not so pretty Blvd. Service is slow but efficient and friendly. Food is absolutely outstanding! Their grilled oysters with Sriracha butter alone will bring us back. Also excellent monkfish, great organic salmon, plump and juicy shrimp cocktail, and a fresh and tasty tuna tartare with house-made potato chips. Arrive early for your reservation and enjoy one of their delicious specialty cocktails at the bar. They also have steak, lambchops and pasta on the menu, but we always go for the seafood.

We were disappointed after hearing good reviews. Our waiter was great but food mediocre. Also had a large & extremely loud birthday party near us that made conversation impossible. Management did a good job of substituting an entree which we appreciated.

The food was perfect! Everyone enjoyed their meals.
Unfortunately, there was an issue with the hostess. We had a reservation and arrived at 6 pm (the restaurant opened at 5 pm) and she told us we would have to wait to be seated. It happened to us an three other parties. 10 minutes later, we were seated though, there were no other customers in the restaurant.
Also the A/C was set to freezing.

My husband and I had a very enjoyable evening. We celebrated our anniversary and they made it extra special with champagne as soon as we arrived. Our waiter and the rest of the staff were friendly and professional. The steakhouse salad was delicious, as well as the baby lamb chops. Oh I almost forgot, the ice cream sundae and cheese cake were the perfect ending for a lovely evening. Definitely will return.
