Horrible service. Restaurant was mostly empty, yet we waited an hour to get drinks and water and another hour to get warm sushi. Never again.

Way overpriced for what your getting. Food was just okay. Nothing special. Service was nothing special.

Dinner was terrific and has been every time I've dined here recently. Little on the pricey side but perhaps worth it for consistency and great taste.

If it wasn’t for the delayed service, I would have given sea pearl 5 stars. Food was great and so was the ambience.

We arrived several minutes before our reservation time and were seated right away. The service was excellent - fast and attentive. The food was outstanding. It was a bit pricey for a family meal - probably more suited for a date night. We will definitely visit again.

We had the most delightful experience at Sea Pearl. Our food was delicious, the setting with beautiful, and the service was outstanding. I highly recommend the jumbo shrimp salad! We will definitely be back.

Overall food was just good - I think it was overpriced for the quality.

We enjoyed our meal and also enjoyed the attention of an excellent server: Eddie.
We started with the spicy and fresh tuna tartare. Shared a kale and beet salad, again very fresh and tasty. The scallop entree was a hit for 2 folks, the filet tender and moist and the sushi a la carte fresh and delicious. We shared a reasonably priced Malbec. A delightful evening for all.
Li, the owner always checks in to make sure our meal is going well and as expected. Thank you.

Our servers were awesome, and the food was amazing. However, I've never been somewhere where they would not let you get happy hour prices on drinks and appetizers with your dinner. About half of my group wound up sitting separately because of this weird policy. I booked a table ahead of time, and nobody thought to mention it to me. This kind of ruined my experience, and I will never come back with a large group again.

I think your chef is changed because my family have been your restaurant on Dec.17 2017 all food was really good.
But your food is no more any taste.

A little pricey but menu is diverse and dishes are beautifully presented. Our waiter made the meal though-very attentive and personable!

Sea Pearl is very good but I wish there were some more affordable options in the entrees. I just can't spend over $30 for an entree or over $20 for ramen when it is $8 up the road.
But most places in Mosaic District are stupidly priced, pretentious, and not as good as Sea Pearl.

Food was good — but not so remarkable that we would recall after a week. Service was so-so especially considering the price point. Eclectic fusion menu.

One complaint: tuna tartar on a large scoop of rice. Really? Small quantity of tuna and ridiculously huge portion of rice. Utter bummer.

Our server was BEYOND amazing. She really went above and beyond to make sure my mom's birthday was special. I cannot recall her name, but she had glasses and long hair. And also has a talent in making non alcoholic beverages that arent on the menu to appease my mom's random cravings. She was also attentive, polite and made sure she communicated with us throughout the evening about our courses. Thank you for a one-of-a-kind experience.

The hostess, on the other hand, clearly was upset about something and we could feel it from the moment we walked in and saw her cold demeanor.

Dropped in for a quick bite. I definitely loved the Hong Kong Clay Pot, it just hit the spot. I added an extra egg to mine. I also had Mussels for an appetizer and the sauce it was in was delicious. I ended up ordering the Brule Banana Split which was delicious. Whatever you decide to try, you can't go wrong. Their Sea Bass dish is also one of my favorites.

Yikes. Terrible night. Calamari included 10 pieces of squid dipped in mounds of fried tempura. Clay hot pot was terrible. Some kind of strange cinnamon spice and overly salty shrimp. Waitress understood how bad our experience was (and seemed to know exactly what we were talking about). When issue was raised with manager, manager was very apologetic and said she would comp our meal, but I haven't seen any credit. Just can't imagine going back sadly.

The food was excellent. We had the spicy tuna tartare and it was very good!!!! We also had a couple of the sushi rolls and the seared scallops for an entree and it too was excellent. The only issue we had was service when we initially arrived.

We went for New Year’s Eve. The owner came to our table to make sure everything was good. The food was delicious. We had the duck dumplings and Spicy Tuna tartare appetizers. They were excellent

our main course arrived while we were still enjoying our starter. The salmon and scallops were "dried out" perhaps by being kept under a warming lamp or such! Being a special occasion with my wife I was terribly disappointed.
Being a very busy Saturday night the serving staff seemed overwhelmed and inadequately trained.

Sea Pearl makes very good dining but the entrees are so expensive other than the ramen bowl type dishes. We were there with quite wealthy friends and even they blanched at the prices - $37 for sea bass?
Sadly we can't make this our regular because of the cost, otherwise we'd eat there often.

As always, enjoy dinner at Sea Pearl. The service is friendly and helpful. A favorite drink, the ginger smash and any seafood.
