Course menu is very normal. Filet mignon and chocolate cake the best. Overrated.

Great ambiance, excellent for a romantic dinner; food was really nice, but not on the WOW side; service was not as outstanding as I would expect for a fancy, fine restaurant.

The ceciche my husband order as an appetizer was ridiculous, just a tiny spoon of ceviche. We both ordered sea bass which was supposed to be their signature dish. It tasted like it had been in the freezer for months! The music was too loud and the chech was over $300.00. Not worth it, not comming back!

La Perla is a great spot for a special dinner. Atmosphere is supper-club like in an amazing structure with views of the ocean and special lighting. Food is very good.

Our dinner at Perla included a four course tasting menu with wines paired for each course. The chef’s creations were superb; the wines were delicious. The service was outstanding. Our server, Nicole, was attentive, pleasant and friendly. The setting was quiet and romantic with views of the ocean from our table. Our dinner at Perla was perfect from the cauliflower soup , the lobster ceviche, and surf and turf to the orange creme brûlée, pumpkin creme brûlée, and assorted ice creams!

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

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!

Loved the food. Portions are on the smaller side. Enough room for dessert. Ordered 2 appetizers and shared. Flavor is outstanding but leaves you wanting more. Beautiful setting and helpful knowledgeable service. Would definitely recommend if you enjoy fine dining

 (Miami)·Dined on July 20, 2017

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.
