Even though I requested flowers at rhe table, it was not fulfilled to surprise my wife. But is a nice and quiet place good for annivesaries, date, or a quiet conversation. It has a nice ocean view and you can stay at the hotel to hang out after dinner.

The worst service I have ever experienced. Not once did the waiter tell us about anything on the menu. Never asked if we wanted another drink. He just handed us the dessert menu and walked off without saying a word.

Everything was divine. Josue was an amazing waiter with impeccable table side service and was nicely complimented by his service staff. Incredible dining experience from the wine list, well thought out appetizers, creative entrees, and top notch service. Best of luck to Josue as he studies to become a sommelier!

Our experience at Perla was excellent. The wait staff was very attentive and the food was outstanding! The soup, a lobster broth with seafood had amazing flavor as did the sea bass. The lobster was also very good, but was a little pricey

Josue, was really amazing, the service was WOW!!!

The host, meh. I sent the request for window table and I told her in the front of the restaurant and she gave me a table in the center of the restaurant. There was 6 window tables empty and 4 of these was clean.

This restaurant was beautiful and the food was great. Our server was amazing and so was the ambiance. Don't drive down Ashford in the evening on the weekend. Just walk! Traffic was pretty bad and we were almost late for our reservation. Dress well, no t-shirts or bathing suits. I would definitely go back, if in PR again!

it is a beautiful venue. BUT WHILE IT ADVERTISES A VIEW OF THE SEA THAT IS FALSE. IT GETS DARK AND YOU SEE NOTHING. the service is professional. food was well prepared , fresh and delicious. if there was only more. very expensive. biggest problem is portion size. tiny. tiny tiny. staff tries to accommodate.

I recommend this Restaurant to my friends and family for a special occasion and for a great get together. The atmosphere was very romantic, the service was very good and the food was flavorful and delicious. The baked lobster (was my plate) melted in my mouth and the desert was so good. Definitely we want to go back for our wedding anniversary dinner.

What a beautiful restaurant. Ambiance 12/10. Beautiful music 9/10. Gorgeous views 12/10. Service 10/10. Delicious food 13/10. If you're gonna go, spend the money on the surf and turf. Combined with the view, the service, the background and the room, this is one of, if not the best, meal I've ever had. 15/10! 6 stars! Amazing!

To say the least, the food was over priced and had little to no taste. Everything was very small and was nothing to brag. They served us cold bread, the butter was cold. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone especially with the selection of great restaurants in puerto rico! I went for my birthday and to give my girls an experience. It failed. We left hungry and ate a great meal right across the street for 1/3 of the price.

I must say every time I stay at La Concha, it is a grand pleasure to dine at Perla. The potions are just right (for some it may be small for me it's perfectly health conscious) It is appropriate for small Buisness dinners, anniversaries and birthdays.

The setting is beautiful and the conch shell you sit in feels like a throwback to the 60's. Very cool setting. Good service and wine selection and good food. A bit pricey, but very good business dinner venue.

The food was good, and the service was also good. We really liked the ambience except I wish I had been there during sunset. It's harder to see the ocean in the darkness. The restaurant was quite and definitely a great date spot. It doesn't have to be an expensive dinner but they have splurge options if you want to splurge.

We visited La Perla while on a graduation trip for my daughters to San Juan. We had seen the shell shaped restaurant from the beach, but it's so much more impressive inside. The ambience is very upscale, white linens, gold accents. Overall the lighting was a bit dark. We were seated in the outer tables near the water. The portions were on the small side, as most upscale restaurants are, but we did not leave hungry. Everyone loved what they ordered, I had the sea bass with crab risotto, was absolutely perfect. My husband had Beef carpaccio and really enjoyed it, and the seared tuna. Wine list was extensive and expensive, although we shared a bottle for the table. Service was excellent, we never waited for anything. Eating at the Perla is as much an experience as it is a meal.

It was a very nice restaurant but VERY pricey. The food was wonderful but my friend's sea bass was super small - I was very surprised! The server was very attentive yet not pushy. Beautiful, clean and super nice.

The food was absolutely amazing! From the ceviche & Grilled Shrimp in curry sauce! My girlfriend had the Filet Mignon & Lobster and I had the Sea Bass with Risotto. Kenny our waiter gave us great recommendation on drinks as well! They even gave me a special dessert for celebrating my birthday! I will definitely come back here once I return!

We ate here last Monday June 2017. Great service. Good food. I had the sea bass which was good. My boy friend had the snaper with octupus sauce which was soooo delish, even if u don't like octupus its a must have. Just pick it out, soooo good. We had our reservations at nite and the lighting was perfect. We couldnt see the beach cuz it was dark outside so I recommend to go at 6pm so u have a chance to see the beach and end the dinner when its dark. So romantic! We took pics and the pics dont justify how nice the place looks inside. We both enjoyed ourselves very much. Great staff. So friendly.
