    Was a last minute decision to have date night. They accommodated us, and we very much enjoyed it. The service from Chris was fantastic, and the food was really good. 5/5 for us.

    Our server Chelsea was a JOY. Friendly, knowledgeable about the menu, and went over the top to make our evening extra special. The food was flavorful and utterly delicious, good wine selection (get the Rioja) - not a cheap restaurant but you definitely get what you pay for. Going back to try their lunch menu!

    Nice little restaurant, limited menu, but interesting choices. Chose the Gem Caesar salad with toasted pine nuts. Very good and lettuce was super fresh. Dressing not garlicky enough for me personally as I like a real traditional Caesar. We were there for dinner and my only complaint is the acoustics aren’t very good and it was so LOUD couldn’t really carry on a conversation.

    Situé à 5 mn d’Aventura mall, ça vaut le coup de se sortir du mall et de ses « restos » de chaînes pour vivre une expérience culinaire privilégiée ici ! Des plats fins et délicieux, un accueil fort sympathique et un service qui l’est tout autant dans un cadre soigné, c’est validé à 100%, n’hésitez pas !

    The food was excellent, drinks were prepared quickly and tasted great. The only negative thing to note was that the front personnel allowed the dog to enter the indoor seating. The dog jumped on one of my guests and startled her. For a high end restaurant that was unacceptable.

    I don’t often write reviews. But we were so underwhelmed by this restaurant I had to say something. Especially since the description on OT is so hyped. We could have had the dishes we ordered anywhere in N Miami at 1/3 of the price. Both the food and the manager have an attitude of they couldn’t be bothered to even make an effort. Very lovely staff otherwise. But really, find somewhere else. Unless you want overpriced, average food in a semi-upscale setting.

    Grilled Hearts of Palm (one of our previous favorites) were tough and under seasoned The special, represented by our server as Maine lobster ravioli, it was cheese ravioli with a lobster sauce which was very very fishy. The Bream fish entree was over cooked and tough, shouldn’t have to use a knife to cut a filet of fish. Chicken was delicious as always, but we brought friends from out of town who were not impressed. We’ve been dining at Perl since it opened and it was just not up to par.

    Had pleasant meals in Oct, Nov and recently on Dec 20 and booked for Dec 26 when family arrived from up north. We confirmed an inside table on open table. Arrived cold and raining outside and Robert the “Manager” (if that is his real name) refused to honour our inside reservation, even though there was an inside table available. Robert threatened to call security on us. l rather than suggest setting up heaters or offering a round of drinks (at least). That would be a first time I was ever threatened in a restaurant where I was a local. Clearly, something went south in restaurant! Do not recommend.

    The Pearl staff was friendly. Service was attentive. Food was well prepared and delicious. Everything that we order was very good. I can only think of 2 issues that bothered us, we were charged $6.00 for 2 bottles of filtered water and the cost of our cocktails @18.00 Was a little excessive for an Aperol spritz. It was a surprise when we received our check. Nevertheless, everything was very good except for the extra +$75.00 on our check..ouch!

    We've been here before and loved it! This time we were all disappointed. The hearts of palm and Perl Caesar salad were great... stracciatella was very good, the Maitake mushroom was good. chicken was cooked well, but strange flavors in sauce. Steak was a huge disappointment and expensive for the quality.
