This is my absolute favorite restaurant in Ridgewood. The food is always fantastic and no matter what I order I am always delighted with my meal! Servers are also great and always efficient, happy and polite. Can’t wait to return and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to eat in Ridgewood.
This place is great! Atmosphere is chill and cool but the staff is also really friendly. They know what they’re doing and what they’re talking about, and you can tell making the customers happy is their main priority. Food is phenomenal, some Italian classics and some twists, and for their prices it’s 100% worth it.
This cozy restaurant has left the best impressions! Hospitable hosts, delicious dishes, beautiful presentation and wonderful dessert. I recommend to everyone! I would like to come back here again and again.
My girlfriend had the halibut special which was amazing! I loved my dish the homemade Pappardelle Bolognese .... we finished it off with the key lime tart! perfect date night spot
great food, great staff and awesome vibes... we look forward to coming back again
Highly recommend this place... Loved the swordfish and my date enjoyed her filet mignon it was cooked to perfection and very tender. Already looking forward to making our next trip here. The service was wonderful and not intrusive.
We had a perfect date night meal here. The swordfish was outstanding and they even served us Strawberry Zabaglione tablesde! Great night out that was long over due. Thanks for making it memorable. We will be back
Just moved into town and I feel like I found my second home coming here. Best Italian food hands down. Marino came to the table and prepared his special scallops dish for us. Can’t wait to come back.
It can be any way dining special occasion or just a date night lovely outside area
Was expecting more after reading reviews. Was sitting next to parking garage nothing to block view. You would think they would make it feel more inviting not the case. Looked right into the kitchen, no portion to obstruct the view.
They exceeded our expectations. It was our first time and my family loved everything. They made us feel like we were in our own home. Can’t wait to come back. Great spot.
Excellent birthday dinner and the service was friendly and courteous. The outdoor setting is amazing.
Best Filet Mignon I’ve ever had hands down! I could cut it with a butter knife it was so tender
Excellent food. Excellent service. Highly recommend. Chef Marino and Host Massimiliano go above and beyond for you.
Celebrated my wife’s surprise birthday dinner here. The food was outstanding and the service was friendly.
To our surprise they have dollar oysters on Mondays! They were fresh and amazing. This is our new Monday night spot!
Had a wonderful dinner al fresco! Love the outdoor setup they have. It’s open airy and green! Be back soon
Local go to spot for Italian food. Love this place
Went here on a Monday and they offer dollar oysters every Monday all day. The key lime meringue tart was amazing!
This was our first time coming to Pearl and we loved it! The food was awesome. We almost licked our plates. Can’t wait to come back again and bring my friends and family.
Local neighborhood gem. My go to place for Italian food
My boyfriend took me here for my birthday. We had such a wonderful evening and the food was delicious! Nonna even came and sang to me. She’s such a sweetheart she reminded me of my grandma :)
Every time we go, we find something new to love about this place... we will continue to spend our celebrations and date nights here as often as we can
Celebrated Mother’s Day here with my family. We had a fantastic meal and the service was impeccable. They even gave my mom and grandma roses!! It was a nice touch and surely impressive. Thank you again to everyone at Pearl
Excellent place to go, especially in the plastic igloos. Food is great!
Birthday celebration and we were able to eat outside in a heated igloo. Waite staff was so attentive, food was delicious and plentiful. Every mom receives a rose (it was the night before Mom’s day). Have always had a wonderful experience at Pearl!
We will be definitely be back here again, we had such a great experience. We had an early dinner so it was quiet yet lovely. Overall service was attentive. Next time we would order a different pasta entree as it was not the best item we had that evening, but was recommended to us by a friend that thought it was amazing. To each their own! The red pepper white bean dip for our bread was a great touch. Meatballs are incredible.
Came here with my husband for our wedding anniversary and had such a wonderful experience. The food was delicious. Thank you so much to the staff for everything. We will be back
Wonderful meal and friendly owners! Get the mussels
Pearl is one of our very favorite restaurants. They excel in all categories!
My family loves this place! Scallops were cooked to perfection! Will be back soon
Great experience! Food is good, especially the fresh pasta prepared by Nonna Carmela! I praise that they use local produce and good quality food like Berkshire pork chops!
My husband had cavatelli with broccoli rabe and he said was the best he ever had! I had salmon and was very good
For dessert, we share a tiramisu and was perfect! We are Italian, born and raised in Italy so we are very picky when comes to Italian cuisine, but we were impressed !
Perfect in every way. Outstanding service. Spectacular food.
The pork chop is amazing!
Excellent restaurant. Wonderful family and personal cooking.
Quality food in a very nice calm environment. The service is very attentive. We had excellent appetizers (you should definetely try the meatballs), and both a steak and seafood entre. The entrees were excellent. It was finished with a great desert.
My fiancé and I cannot stop raving about this place! Authentic homemade Italian food just the way I like it! The music is amazing and the staff was wonderful. Can’t wait to come back again. Thank you Pearl!
This was the best food we have had since moving to New Jersey. Better than NYC. From the service to the food it was a great experience. Outdoor, indoor and igloo seating. We started with the Stuffed artichoke and steamed little neck clams and soaked up every bit of the broth. For dinner we both had pasta and loved every bite. For dessert the tiramisu was absolutely perfect with a cappuccino to finish the night. It was the best date night meal we have had in years. We will be back and telling all our friends and family to make a reservation.
The food was fresh, delicious and easily made this restaurant my new favorite place to dine. The service was impeccable and the ambiance was just perfect. Highly recommend this place for celebrations, date nights and more!
Came here for Easter dinner with my family and I highly recommend this place! Great Italian food and friendly service. I felt like I was at home.
