As always, food & service were excellent.
Their fried chicken was great and portions are big. Enough for leftovers the next day.
Margarita was great - not sweet and syrupy like so many other places - just a bit pricey for the size.
We will definitely be back to The Pearl! The food was amazing! I tried a dish I would not normally eat and loved it. The ambience was great as well as the choice of music!
May I suggest that you cut the music during brunch? It was simply annoying - just loud enough to hear only the thump of drums and a mush of all the other sound and overwhelm our conversation. We were forced to yell to each other across the table, instead of having a normal conversation, which, I'm guessing, is the reason most people go to brunch with friends and family.
Other than the music issue, our out-of-town guests loved The Pearl (as do we). A great place.
There were too many customers packed in like sardines. No covid distancing or protocol
Great Service! Great Food! You have to get the Tater Tots. Enjoy.
We had an amazing time at the amazing Happy Hour. Our waiter was patient and friendly
A lovely experience from beginning to end. Exceptional service with unique and delicious food! A rare treat these days! We’ll definitely be back!
No acknowledgement about special occasion.
We enjoyed our evening. The food and drink was all delicious and perfectly prepared. We loved the punch and devils on horseback for starters. The fish and chips, the harbor salad, the shrimp and grits were all wonderful.
Great experience. Food was delicious. All the rave reviews are well earned. The fried pb&j we’re delicious. So we’re the deviled eggs. Fried chicken and burger were also delicious. Best thing was the brown sugar pie!! Amazing!!
Every time I've eaten here, the food and service has been excellent.
My only very mild complaint is that the music in the back of the restaurant during brunch was really loud. I had to shout at my dining companions so they could hear me.
Great food, eclectic menu that offers something for everyone. Top notch service and an inviting warm environment. Highly recommend for a fun night out.
excellent food and atmosphere
Second time we have tried The Pearl. Again, the food was barely warm when brought to us...we asked it to be taken back and warmed in the mircowave-it came back to us no warmer than originally. Nothing like barely warm eggs, sausage, gravy and biscuits for breakfast. This will be out last time there
Great Place. We will be back! The tater tots were amazing.
I really enjoy Cameron Mitchell restaurants and this one was so disappointing.
Just plain loud - not energetic - Loud. Service waiting lacking....server was in the weeds...had to ask 3 times to confirm 3 parts of 4 of the order. Bartender delivered my wife's wine. I believe an expeditor/manager delivered salad and entree. Appetizer was served after the salad course, again poor timing issues....some nice wines by the glass, some not so much (appeasing a wholesaler?) Heard so many good things - didn't live up to any of the build up.
1 year anniversary with my partner. Food was incredible. Manhattan cocktail was on point. Great service!
Wish I had a better experience but it was the second time being disappointed at The Pearl. The Manhattan was a light pour. The burger was gummy. The server was inattentive.
Love the pearl! Always have a great time. The service and food were excellent!! Can’t recommend this restaurant enough!
Beautiful atmosphere and great food for the price. Great for date nights.
Delicious food and free pie for my husband’s birthday!
excellent choice in Short North! Loved it. Great ambiance , cocktails and food. Try the pie!
We've eaten at The Pearl multiple times. We were disappointed our meals the last time we ate there.
Amazing dinner. Jordan our waiter was perfection. Cornbread, steak, shrimp and grits are outstanding.
Can’t wait for our next visit to Columbus.
Great waitress, excellent food & fabulous atmosphere! Went back for drinks next night.
From the minute we walked into The Pearl, to the time we left the staff was excellent. Our server Alex was knowledgeable and provided insight and guided us through the menu. He was kind and personable as we kibitzed about our home towns. The food was excellent and the drinks were on the spot. The hostesses assisted us with directions as we were leaving. Great job by the staff at The pearl Short North.
Love the drinks and appetizers here
Best Tater Tots ever!!!! Great cocktails.
Great dinner…everything was good and server was attentive…we sat by the street window ..so it was pretty loud w all the street cars but enjoyed it
Our waiter, David, was fantastic and very attentive.
Great food, slow but not unexpected during COVID. Highly recommended.
We loved the food and our server. Kind and helpful. We will be back.
We went here for our anniversary, first time dining here for both of us. It was nice to see they asked diners and staff to wear masks in the restaurant, and that's something I know I definitely appreciated.
Our server was fantastic - very bubbly, friendly, and gave us plenty of time to first choose drinks and appetizers (snackies as she called them, which was funny!), then came back a few minutes later to take our dinner order. For apps, my husband got the cup of Clam Chowder (such a cute little cup!), which I got to N'awlins Style Oysters. Both were delicious. I loved the bread served with it - great for sopping up the sauce (which had a nice little kick to it). My husband got the strip steak with broccoli and a baked potato - his steak was cooked nearly perfectly, and was incredibly tender. The broccoli is how I want to always make it from now on - charred a bit with parmesan cheese on it. Perfectly seasoned (as was the steak!), I nearly stole it from him. I got the Arctic Char with roasted cauliflower, balsamic vinegar and cauliflower pureé. My fish was perfectly cooked, well seasoned, and the cauliflower - roasted and pureé - were tasty. I could've used more roasted cauliflower (there was some mixture on top of the pureé that I wasn't expecting), or a combo of the cauliflower and charred broccoli (but that's me). The pureé was luscious and creamy - and another thing I want to start emulating at home. I also wish I'd of asked for more to take home with my remaining half filet of Char.
Overall - a delicious dinner, very nice ambiance, and friendly staff. What you expect from a CM restaurant, and this one didn't disappoint in the slightest. We'll definitely be back for another date night!
Does not disappoint-excellent food! Always a favorite when we are in town.
excellent food, we've been to the short north and dublin restaurants. Ideal for a romantic date or just an amazing cocktail with friends
I do not remember out server but he was a younger gentleman and truly made the whole night for us.
Didn't know it was happy hour. What a great value.
The Pearl is my favorite happy hour spot in the short north!! Ez our serving always gives us exceptional service!
Everything was great. You must try the cornbread!
Incredible food. Wonderful service. Definitely would recommend a reservation.
