Wait staff was very sweet but the tables are too close together and the busboys kept hitting my daughter’s chair with no apology offered. Noise level: LOUD! Food was good but given the other distractions we wouldn’t recommend this place.

Honestly, I’ve been hearing for years how awesome Perla’s was, and I thought the food was just ok. Maybe it was all the buildup. But, for close to $100/person, I expect to be blown away and really it was pretty “meh.” And it was loud and we were on top of another table, to the point where I couldn’t sit centered in front of my place setting or I would have booty bumped my neighbor. We had the lobster roll, the crab risotto, and the sautéed grouper, as well as the chocolate bar dessert, and all of it was good, but none of it was special. The one area that was a standout was their raw oysters - those were fab.

Perlas is great and pricey. Average meal is over 30$. Personally I filled up in the calamari app! The outdoor patio is lovely. Decor inside is very soothing and beach with lots of turquoise. I love the striped sailor shirt touch on the waiters.

Our server did a great job making suggestions. Everything was spot on from the very fresh oysters to the hand crafted cocktails.

The food was fresh and well put together. As it is a seafood place, it didn't smell like seafood walking in, which is a good sign. The prices are a little high, but that should be somewhat expected when you are flying in seafood from the coasts often.

I had the grilled redfish, which I’ve had before, and it wasn’t very good. Also, it was so loud that we had a hard time hearing each other.
