    Cool place. Friendly and attentive staff at the bar. Beet salad was really good. Short rib was mostly fat. Veggies were room temp. Whole dish was room temp. Angels Envy old fashion was $30. C’mon! I believe they have good food but was an off night. At these prices, it should be much better.

    Our server, Shawn, was wonderful! We could tell he was pretty busy, but he was still attentive to us and the things we needed. The food was delicious, the menu is very unique from other places in Columbus. We started with the fried pb&js, and I had the grilled cheese and my husband has the shrimp & grits. We had the blueberry cheesecake for dessert. All of the food was so wonderful! The drinks were great too, we had a couple of cocktails. Overall, the service was great and the food was amazing. We will be back!

    We usually love going to the Pearl! It’s our go to special occasion spot, and the food and atmosphere are great! However, this time our service was pretty sub-par. Our waiter barely greeted us and wasn’t friendly throughout the meal. When it came time for dessert he just asked “pies?” and we had to ask for options. He also didn’t say anything when he just plopped the check on our table without a “have a nice night or thanks for coming in.” We probably should’ve said something, but we were celebrating a birthday (also never acknowledged) and didn’t want to ruin a nice time otherwise. Will think twice before spending 110+ on a meal to be treated like that.

    The Pearl has been one of our favorite restaurants for years but on Friday night, we had a lackluster dining experience. Typically the wait staff is very attentive but no one explained the specials, oyster varietals or other aspects of the menu. The oysters did not seem the freshest and the pork piri piri which I typically love, was not as expected (very dry, no broth at all). We were really looking forward to this dinner and it left us disappointed.

    It was good but very loud. My only complaint was I was sat all the way in the back. I walk with a cane so the host should have seated me up closer where there was a few empty tables. You have to be aware of people with disabilities and handicap. I also had a reservation.

    Awesome dinner, wonderful experience. The seafood was incredible, we were cautious because we live on the coast and get great seafood. We were not disappointed. The tots were excellent and worth getting. The short rib was incredibly tender and full of flavor. We loved our waitress, Torah. The best. Thank you!

    Our drinks and meal were surprisingly boring. The waiter seemed to be "phoning it it," meaning he showed little interest in us or how our meal was progressing. Given the prices compared to what we got, there are many other restaurants that provide more of an experience and are a better value. It was a pretty forgettable dinner overall. A shame, since we were there celebrating our anniversary.
