    We came to Prime and Pearl to celebrate and it is definitely to best place in the area to treat yourself. The food was delicious especially the Rockefeller Oysters but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Our waitress was so nice and knowledgeable making it even more special.

    Molly treated us perfectly. She offered selections to make our first visit memorable. The food was prepared exactly as described. Our only complaint is the manager refused to move our party of two from a large six person booth to a smaller intimate table.

    Food, atmosphere, and service was great. The could let you know your steak does come wit a smear of potatoes and a couple Asparagus spears so you don’t order extra sides. Prices are a little steep. But overall I would go back for special occasions.

    My wife and I’s one year anniversary was extremely memorable with such an amazing experience at Prime and Pearl. I’ve worked at steak houses before and this one hands down is by far the best steakhouse I’ve ever eaten at. Great quality food and amazing service from staff. 10/10 would recommend this restaurant to any special occasion! Will be returning soon!!!!

    The food really isn’t very good. If you’re trying to be a five star restaurant, you need to have a five star chef. The food is poor to average. My table setting included a small plate that was filthy. It was replaced with a plate that was wet. Do you see what I mean? Even McDonald’s serves customers on a clean plastic tray - every time.

    Food was good, though not exceptional for the price point. Had a much better experience at Spurriers overall and will go there next time. Servers were very friendly and efficient. Hostess was extremely cold and arrogant. We had a very early dinner reservation for a family celebration (adults, no small children) made over a month ago. Despite being dressed appropriately and an empty restaurant for most of our dining experience, we were seated in the noisy bar with a basketball game on TV and she refused to move us because she said they were going to be full in the main dining room later. Decor was nice. Probably the nicest "special occasion" restaurant in Gainesville, but would fall short in any city with restaurant competition.
