I really don’t know anything about the food. The place was half empty. We couldn’t get seated without asking someone at the waiter’s station. The table was dirty, even the centerpiece was filthy. No drink order taken after 15 minutes. I finally realized if the experience got any worse I’d be furious. So we got up and left.

I was disappointed with lunch. This restaurant claims French influences. I ordered a CROQUE MONSIEUR. Basically all I got was a cold toasted ham sandwich with a cream sauce that looked like Elmer’s glue. See the pictures below of what I got and compare the picture of a real CROQUE MONSIEUR. The only saving grace of the lunch was the small frisée salad that accompanied the sandwich.
I will not return. Which is a shame because the hotel area where restaurant is located is nice.

We're enjoyed a great dinner here during restaurant week. Our server "T" was amazing... Very attentive, engaging and provided good input on our questions regarding the menu. Highly recommend... The lamb and trout entrees were delicious!

Hotel lobby was under construction and you could hear the noise in the restaurant. The restaurant feels like a Courtyard breakfast room as it looks out on the pool area and is open to the lobby and the meeting area where used paper coffee cups were stacked on top of the banquettes. Ended up leaving so I have no idea how the food is. The server was understanding as was the valet. However, it would have been nice if someone at the restaurant had warned of the noise and construction when confirming my reservation which I noted was for my wedding anniversary. Will not be going back.

We made a reservation to try this restaurant during restaurant week. We arrived and walked into the building to the LOUD sound of drills and other machinery. They are renovating in the lobby adjacent to the restaurant. No one was at the restaurant to greet us. We walked further back thinking that it would be quieter and we could find someone to seat us. We found a waiter that seated us around the corner. It is still very loud. He gave us the regular menu and we asked for the restaurant week menu. He came back later and told us he couldn't find it and would ask his supervisor. He then reappeared in the room and began moving tables and ignoring us. We last a few more minutes and then walked out and went to Al Biernat's where we had a delightful meal. Horrible experience!

Dined out for Dallas Restaurant Week. The DRW menu was limited so my husband ordered off the regular menu while I tried the DRW menu. Food was yummy! They were a bit short-staffed for a Saturday night but the host, Manuel, was amazing and helped with service! We will be back to try more items :)

I had a wonderful experience. The restaurant had a great ambiance. Decor was very chic and elegant. Our host was very pleasant and friendly. He made us feel very welcome and also gave us a little history lesson on the hotel which made it even better. We asked to meet the chef to compliment him on the amazing polenta with lamb. The escargot was the best I ever had, and I have had a lot. Over all, I was very happy and pleasantly suprised with the service, cuisine and wonderful staff. Will definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends.

Very memorable evening to celebrate my mother's birthday. The dining room was pretty empty for a Friday but that meant we got a lot of attention from the staff. Manuel and Raul took great care of us. The pork and cod fritters were delectable, the steak frites were nothing to write home about.

This was very disappointing on numerous levels. The server was amazing (which actually was the real highlight) and some of the dishes were ok but we had two mixed drinks that were made incorrectly (including missing key ingredients) and one dish was over cooked (and sent out without finishing sauce - duck requested medium rare and came out well done). The manager tried to make it right which we appreciated but for an empty restaurant this left much to be improved. I would suggest other choices as open table is usually spot on but tonight’s experience was a real example of when a kitchen and bar staff really don’t care about the product they put out. Final thought as the person who made the suggestion to our friends - I felt like I had to apologize for the experience.

What's not to like about Perle on Maple in Le Meridien, Stoneleigh, where we (party of four) dined on July 12, 2019. The restaurant features excellent cuisine -- from appetizer to dessert -- and attentive and knowledgeable service. Our delicious repast was preceded and followed by our interactions with host Manuel. He greets guests as they should be greeted, with a sincerely warm welcome and an introduction to our waitress (a "server" is merely a person who brings food to the table). Before leaving us in her very capable hands, Manuel told us that he is also the hotel's historian, and whetted our appetite for a post-dinner tour of the penthouse suite on the 11th floor, which is much as it was when the hotel was built in 1923. There's more to the suite than opulent woodwork, stained glass, fireplaces, and huge dining room and ballroom. There's also a ghost story. But I won't give it away. If you dine at Perle on Maple when Manuel is at the door, be sure to ask him about Margaret if he doesn't mention it to you.

We got to the restaurant just as the power went out at the hotel. The staff served us drinks and the smoked fish dip with homemade potato chips, which was outstanding. They made us feel comfortable and took care of us until the power came back on. We then had a wonderful dinner. They went above and beyond to make what could have been a failed dinner an overall pleasurable experience even under the circumstances. We will go back!

It is a hotel restaurant. That said, the interior has been painted white and the interior is now light and pretty. The service was bad and, although it was Mother’s Day, there wasn’t a crowd, so I couldn’t blame it on that. The food was good, but maybe not good enough to make up for the price and service.

Sorry to have to write a negative review; however, my experience at Perle on Maple was unenjoyable. Liked the ambience, and our waiter was on top of his game but the food and choices of food on the menu (Easter) were not to our liking. Had difficulty finding dishes we wanted to order because combinations were strange. Sweet potato pancakes were delicious but covering them with shredded duck detracted from the pleasure of devouring the pancakes. Croque Madame was dry with very little mornay sauce and bread so thick that eating it was difficult. The sandwich should have been made with thinner bread and creamy mornay sauce. Unfortunately, no one in our group left thinking they had had a beautiful experience. Sure hope the kitchen gets their act together, because the venue is very nice.

Overall food was very good but not off the charts great. Service was mediocre as the waiter could not seem to be able to open a wine bottle and was not hugely attentive (and the restaurant was not busy). I was staying at the hotel as were my guests so it was very convenient but I would likely go elsewhere next time I say there.

I’ll start with the positive. The service was amazing! Our server, T was wonderful, kind, and so attentive. Also, the manager, Jorge, was superb!!!! He treated us so well and tried so hard to make us happy. None I have what I’m about to say is either one of their faults. The food was not very good. The goat cheese appetizer was actually terrible. I’m not sure there was even any goat cheese in it. It tasted like mashed potatoes. The duck was good at first, but then it was so rich I had a stomach ache the rest of the night. The oysters were OK. Again, I want to say that all the wait staff was exceptional! The bartenders were great too!

The French onion soup was good but it was very very hot (that is what happens in microwave ovens) :/
The entree was mediocre, at beast. The Salmon was fried hard/dry on the outside and medium in the middle - again, funny that the fish was very very hot. Good thing, I didn't have to pay for the dish as they took it off the bill.

For dessert, this is funny, I ordered "CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE , crème anglaise, raspberries".
It said the warm chocolate would be flowing out when you cut it. Well, again, it was very very hot and dry with no chocolate floating out as lava. One poor little raspberry (singular). I sent the dish back and they took the dessert off the bill.

This is interesting - there were 2 others tables with couples and they also sent their food back. 3 tables occupied all sending food back.
The servant was really nice and he tried but didn't have anything to work with.

In summary, the Stoneleigh hotel is very nice and the staff is great. I'll stay there again - and to be fair the breakfast was great. To management: get rid of the microwaves -that is not they way to prepare food in a restaurant named "The Pearl on Maple Street".

Yes, I also have to wonder why we choose to eat our anniversary dinner in a hotel restaurant?
We are over 60 so we should know better - but its good to know we are still making the same mistakes young people are making:)

What a delightful evening! We had dinner at the restaurant to celebrate my Mum's birthday. The staff went out of their way to ensure that she felt like a princess throughout the evening. Everyone was incredibly attentive and the food was divine! We definitely indulged and it was totally worth it - my Mum is STILL talking about how much she enjoyed the evening, the ambiance, the food... everything! Thanks to everyone there that made the evening extra special! xoxo

We went for New Years Eve dinner, the Perle was not busy. Plenty of table available, perfect amount of distance between other tables. The noise level was perfect for intimate conversation. The food was good, much better than your average hotel restaurant. The service was lacking some initially my drink glass went empty, had to wait for refill. Our soup/salad came out at the same time as our entrees. No explanation or apologies given. Towards the end of dinner the service improved when the maitre d and manager were stopping by to service our table. We will give the Perle on Maple a second chance.

Now and then you encounter a meal that exceeds your expectations. Our Christmas brunch at Perle on Maple was one of those extraordinary meals. My family has a tradition of eating out on Christmas day, which is not always easy given that most restaurants are closed for the holiday; but we usually eat at a hotel restaurant. We had not dined at the revamped Perle on Maple, which is located in the historic Stoneleigh Hotel, so we decided to give it a try. So glad we did. The restaurant has a bright, welcoming, bistro feel, which complements the largely French cuisine. First course, the goat cheese appetizer was cooked to perfection. Served creamy and hot, with the right amount of crusty carmelization on the side of the pan - we ate the whole thing. Second course, the onion soup arrived with steaming onion broth and lots of gooey cheese in a classic crock - just yummy. Tip - save some soup for the french dip sandwich. This was also excellent, and even better when dipped in the rich onion broth. My wife loved her beet salad, and said it was cooked to perfection. The highlight of the main course was my daughter's steak with yukon gold creamy potatoes, part of a very affordable $55 3-course prix fixe holiday menu. Again, nothing particularly unusual, but a juicy steak done right is always a treat. The final "gift" of this lovely Christmas brunch was the fourth(?) course - our deserts - warm profiteroles with velvety vanilla bean ice cream - both the pastry and ice cream are made in house (see picture), and a selection of house-made sorbets that filled your mouth with intense fruit flavor. We also had the creme brulee' which was well executed in classic French style. We toasted to a perfect Christmas brunch with glasses of Moet Rose' champagne. We look forward to a return visit soon!

Sat nite. 7pm reservation. Was running late and advised 7:15. No problem. Only 3 tables had diners when arrived. At least 6 tables were empty and needing to be bussed. One waiter. One host. No buss. Was fairly confident disaster awaited. Took 15 minutes to be seated after a table was cleared. Another 15 minutes before waiter showed for drink order. Took food order before drinks arrived. Took 15 minutes for drinks to arrive. (It's 8 now.) Salads arrived about 5 minutes after drinks. Entrees arrived 8 minutes after salads. Total cluster with no apparent recognition of the problem of setting down hot entrees with salads barely touched. Salads ok. Entrees ok. Host was gracious. Waiter was nice but clueless. Saw cook from kitchen serving a table.
If it were possible to give 0 stars, I would give rather than 1 star. Cannot imagine this place will be open for 6 more months.
Yes, I know it is a hotel restaurant. On the other hand, Fearings and Knife are hotel restaurants and fabulous. Perle on Maple is not.
Avoid.
