Food was mediocre but the ambiance was great. Would get the burger and salt crusted shrimp and not the bouillabaisse.
Amazing service and fabulous food. Every dish was just right. Burgers were juicy and the bacon jam was savory and sweet. Halibut was buttery and the veggies were perfectly cooked. The pan fried chicken was delicate and hearty at the same time.
Great staff, great location. Perfect for a young family.
Excellent service and food was very good. Exceeded expectations.
Very cool relaxed ambiance. Be sure to make a reservation as they were turning people away without one. Loved their cocktail menu.
Bar top seating was great! Bar tender was very nice! Food was great!
Excellent service. I had the lobster stew which was fantastic!
Amazing seafood! Flavors melted in our mouths!
Salted shrimp is to die for! Bouillabaisse was delicious. Our second time was as good as the first - we’ll be back.
Food was terrific! Staff friendly and accommodating - our server was subpar, but staffing is difficult right now. Overall, great experience! Would definitely recommend.
Best fried oysters and lobster rolls in the universe!!
By far the best upscale yet casual dining restaurant in the area!
Our experience at Pearl was delightful. The food was very good as was the presentation. Our server was attentive and courteous. I would recommend this restaurant.
We try to go every time we’re in time. Consistent excellent service and food. Timely and attentive service- everyone must be working here!
The food was outstanding. My absolute favorite was the lobster stew which as filled with lobster with beautifully cooked veg. I can’t wait to go eat it again. Cocktails were very good as well (Paloma and brown derby) Ambiance and service were both great. This has been my favorite meal of the summer so far. Beautiful job chef!
Wonderful evening all around. Food. Service. Ambience. Always so good!
excellent food and service. But the acoustics really need improvement. Its far too loud; hard to hear others at your table. It would must nice with lower conversation and a little music.
Service and food are always great! We had friends visiting and they loved it.
Wonderful food in a relaxed setting.
We had several small plates and drinks while relaxing outdoors. Natalie made the experience wonderful and let us relax.
Always love the food and service at Pearl
The oysters were delicious and the Lobster Stew is to die for!!
The menu, although limited, offered a wide variety, sure to please. The restaurant is dressed with simple elegance. Just lovely and very comfortable. Service staff was prompt, courteous and eager to please. I highly recommend Pearl, in fact, it's a must.
Perfect meal for date night. Fresh oysters followed by delicious halibut atop corn sugar snap tomato salad. Thank you, Rebecca and servers. We’ll be back!
We loved this restaurant! The service was excellent. Olivia was our server and she was so welcoming and helpful. Everything we ordered was delicious. We even ordered a second Caesar salad because the first one was so good. The atmosphere was very warm and inviting. Definitely one of the best meals we had in Kennebunk. Great way to celebrate our anniversary!
We really enjoyed our evening at Pearl! We had both the fried and fresh oysters to start. We all had the bouillabaisse for our main course - so delicious! And very hearty on a cold and rainy July 4th weekend. Our server Olivia was very friendly and helpful. All in all, a wonderful meal!
We found a gem! Service was excellent-we were celebrating our anniversary and they gave us complimentary prosecco. Fried oysters were delicious and our halibut was to die for- plus the vegetables were so good- crunchy and flavorful. Overall outstanding. Pearl is our new favorite restaurant in the area. It rivals Ocean.
We had a pretty mediocre meal except for the fried oyster small plate (4 oysters which we split). My halibut was dry although the veggies that came with it were good. I wasn’t expecting that it would be full of screaming children but also it was.
We had a reservation for bar seating. We know that usually the service at the bar is more casual, we expect that but not when you have reserved seating it shouldn't be. I consistently waited with an empty drink and water glass. We asked for bread and never received it. We assured her that we were ok with it. We waited so long to order dessert and coffee while Jessie was giving real estate advice at the bar that we said forget it. The couple next to us were also waiting to order drinks. There were four to five couples at the bar. I can completely understand if she was busy but she was talking. During the appetizer the candles at the bar went out. She took them away and never replaced them. She asked if we'd like the check we said yes and proceeded to wait 20 minutes. She let it go so long that we stood at the bar until she noticed. Not sure if we would go back. Service really left a sour taste in our mouths.
Lobster roll was mostly Mayo with some bits of lobster. Halibut was ice cold. Not sure why food was so bad - wasn’t crowded. Maybe an off night…. Try somewhere else! Pilot house was much better.
We come here 3-4 times for month. The food, staff and atmosphere are wonderful.
Food was very good and beautifully presented.
My wife had the Lobster stew & said it was the best dish she ever had & we eat at a lot of nice restaurants!
The fried oysters are one of our favorite appetizers. Their burger is one if the best I've had.
We had an enjoyable evening in Pearl's lovely dining room. The food was fine but nothing to rave about except the oysters and clams in the half shell (fresh) and the Eleanor's Caesar salad - the lettuce was exceptional. We enjoyed good wines by the glass, fun cocktails and the Maine Lavender Lemonade Mead was a hit with everyone. Possibly, they had an off night but most of our dinners were rather bland. We have often dined at Pearl's in Manhattan and personally find the dining experience to be better there.
We love to get to Pearl. Love the place, the staff and the food! The oysters and little necks are fresh and you order by the piece...have one of each or three or a dozen. The fried oysters are amazing...definitely a favorite. The mussels are delicious. The drinks are good with plenty to choose from. Lobster roll with shoestring fries.....yum! Salmon cooked perfectly. Even saved a little room to share a dessert treat.
We had dinner at the bar - the burger was amazing and the lobster roll was excellent! Service was fantastic! We will be back for sure
Very enjoyable dinner! great food and service. Thank you!
The food is always excellent and the staff are working their tails off.
Everything was great. The lobster stew is always amazing is the Caesar Salad.
