Perla's Seafood and Oyster Bar Ratings and Reviews
This was the worst experience I've had at Perla's. It was my girlfriends bday dinner and we had to move tables due to very slow service on the patio. Once we were inside her fish came to the table raw in the middle and that waiter was also very slow and seemed as if he didn't really care. I don't think we'll be back. I understand restaurants having bad days, however I listed it as a special occasion on the reservation and would've expected them to try at least a little to accommodate that - they didn't even notice. Such a shame.
Perlas is one of our favorite places. We eat there a lot but the service this time was horrible and many of the entrees were sold out as well. Don’t mind paying the money to eat there and have a great meal but when it’s lackluster it can be really disappointing.
I like well prepared Texas seafood. I hate when Gulf of Mexico catches are abused by the chef. Perla's shows the food lots of love. My favorite is the Texas Gulf Barrelfish. Perla's prepares with the some butter, garlic and other nice spices so its fabulous. The local greens are fabulous with a clean dressing that has a touch of citrus. The carmalized tomato matches nicely.
Perla's makes an awesome Dirty rice. I'm 90% positive it has charizo in it, which offers a nice Texas flavor, especially given that the charizo Perla's uses is very clean.
The asparagus is veggie crack. It's really well prepared, including the simple char they do.
The cocktails are well prepared but understand I'm a bourbon and water person. My BFF doesn't dig foo-foo chick drinks but she loves the wine selections.
Have fun. Oh, the ceviche is fabulous.
Everything was perfect. We were a group if 4. Had dinner outside. The oak trees are magnificent. I have eaten there 3 times. The service is great. The swordfish was recommended and was fantastic sweet and moist. I was nit a swordfish fan prior. We all had something different and the dishes were all delectable.
My self proclaimed "Goldie" coworker and I went here with expectations that were far exceeded. We shared several of the apps and split the lobster bucatini which was fantastic!! Our server was great with recommendations and understanding our requests for splitting the bill! I would highly reckmmend
Why did I wait so long to try this place? It's excellent - great selection, great quality. So many oysters to choose from, we had to keep sampling to give them all a shot! Service that complements that atmosphere - just friendly enough without being intrusive.
Our waiter had too much cocaine and couldn't keep it together. Continuously forgot things we asked. Food was sooooooo good though. Also they turned the music up way loud so my mom couldn't hear anything anymore and when we asked them to turn it down we pretty much got ignored the rest of the night.
