    This is a do-not-miss dining experience. After many mediocre (not so) fine dining experiences elsewhere, this restaurant was a true standout in every way.

    The waiter was outstanding with everything, very informational as far as the menu goes and the history of the prime and Pearl establishment.  The food was amazing. No complaints. Left me and my wife speechless. Highly recommend this place! Treat yourself!!!!

    Always a treat to dine at Prime and Pearl. It was a bit noisier than usual but it really didn’t interfere with our evening. Excited to see that you’ll be expanding in the future. And we’re already looking forward to our next visit. Thank you.

    The service was good. My ribeye steak was awful. It was tough and had no flavor. It was like it was pulled out the freezer and quickly grilled with no seasoning added. I ate about four bites and gave up. I ended up eating half of my wife's crab cakes and throwing the $50 steak away. I was amazed that the waiter did not ask why I had not eaten my steak. Kind of obvious something was wrong. The atmosphere was way too casual (shorts) for a restaurant that ends up being $100/person.

    The restaurant is very nice and in a nice location. Clean and moderately quiet. The bartender Sarah was lovely and perfect amount of attentive. The waiter we had was very… intrusive and his timing was off. Maybe an off night but he kept interrupting conversations frequently (business dinner) and we felt rushed to move along. Our reservation was for 730p and allowed adequate time for us to wrap up before closing. The steak was perfect. Dessert with a whiskey is a must!

    I have been to Prime & Pearl multiple times and have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Our waitress Melanie was amazing, very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. It was a bit loud on this occasion because of a large party in the semi-private room. Our table was just in front of the sliding doors and they were left open for most of our dinner due to guests walking in and out. It was difficult at times having a conversation. The next time I make reservations I'll be sure to ask for a table away from the room. Luckily P&P is expanding so there will be more seating options.

    This is a special place to celebrate occasions in our small college town. Gainesville is really stepping it up with this classy establishment. We had a wonderful family graduation celebration dinner with delicious food & drink with detailed service and attentiveness all the way from the knife selections for our steaks to the outrageously magnificent dessert!

    We had high expectations but overall not worth the price. Steak was fine but not excellent. Mushrooms were cold. Pork chop cooked medium well was tasteless. Highlight was the stuffed carrot cake.

    I booked reservations and asked to be seated in the blue booth. We were early, there was no one in the booths, and we were taken to a back dining room. I ordered the sea bass , which came as a thin fillet and was very salty. I couldn’t eat it. A girl came over to take away our dirty dishes and placed my used silverware on top of the table. That’s so unsanitary to me. So I asked a different waiter staff for clean silverware. After dinner and before dessert another waitress did the exact same thing!! This is not best practice for infection control people! My mouth has been on the silverware but not on the table surface for a reason. You never know who is on chemotherapy or Immunosuppressants. I always check the menu and prices beforehand so the $200+check was not too bad. We ordered the carrot cake and it saved the experience for me! They brought out what looked like 1/4 cake. It was stacked with cheesecake in between and OMG!
