    Very disappointed. My mushroom bolognese had a burnt taste. The tomatoes and mozzarella appetizer was rubbery. Not a great experience.

    One of the worst meals I ever had. There were 7 of us and only 1 had an acceptable meal. Food was awful, but at least the margaritas were very good.

    They were out of hummus. I chose the meal I ordered based on it coming with brussel sprouts. It arrived without them. When I asked about it the waitress said they were out of brussel sprouts. My son needed extra sauce for his wings and it took forever to get someone to get more. My mom ordered tater tots, but she got fries instead. When the waitress asked how everything was, my mom said, “We’ll, it could be better.” and the waitress laughed.

    We wanted to support local and small business instead of a chain, but it didn't work out well for us. I was a server/bartender/host for 15+ years- I know how it all works. It was Mother's Day so I expected busy, no problem. We were seated right away, had water within a few minutes and it was then another 10 min before anyone came over. We had a server who seemed like maybe was a bartender that they pulled to wait tables. He was fine but, didn't really seem too invested in us. We tried to order 2 different things that were sold out- by 5:20. Being told what was not available before ordering would've been helpful. We had ordered wings as an appetizer that never showed up. We were told by a woman running food that "the chef saw them get plated so, they must've gone to the wrong table". We mentioned that to our server and he apologized but, it didn't really sound sincere. The meals were fine. We were 5 people and they were delivered 2, then another 2 and my son sat and waited until we were a third done before his showed up. I has the Reuben and while it tasted good, half of the meat was so tough I couldn't bite through it. I left it on my plate and told the server who again aplogized, but never followed up about it. I would've taken it to my manager and let them know. If he did, no one mentioned it to us. We called it a night, got the check, paid and left. Not sure we'll ever go back. I'm sure my parents will not.

    I know it was Mother's Day but other tables received their food before us and then we received one appetizer and not the other. The soup came out when we were half way done with our meal. It was extremely slow and most of us did not even like our meals. We decided to forgo dessert.

    Multiple tables of children who were loud; above normal conversational noise levels and inattentive parents. Challenging for a two top to have conversation.

    We had a difficult time finding this place at first. Hidden away on center square in Easton. Food was very good but server made several errors with order and billing. We were on a time crunch and needed to get to the State Theater so we did not challenge the one billing item that was to be taken off the bill as order was a burger with an egg but no egg was on burger. Food was very good though.

    We got the short rib poutine as an appetizer, and for entrees I got the mushroom ragu and my girlfriend got the pistachio salmon. My dish was fine and seasoned well, but her's was a very bland fish on top of a bed of unseasoned potatoes and carrots. I shared mine with her and we did our best to use the salt and pepper to make hers good, but it was very disappointing. With 2 out of 3 dishes still being good, I like to think that it was just a fluke, but for the price there should really be more consistency.

    Was told by host that since we didn’t have a reservation it would be at least an hour till he could seat us. I went on the Open Table app and made a reservation for 15 mins later. I explained this to the host and he said he didnt have a table for 5 people for us. When the women manager came over she confirmed the reservation & had our table ready. Food was very good. It did take 40 mins to be served.

    2 minutes after receiving our appetizers, our dinner was brought out. When we told the manager she said its because there is a show at the state theater and deal with it. We mentioned we were not seeing a show and wanted to enjoy our appetizers before our dinner but it didn't matter to her. Felt rushed, service was bad, won't go there again. There are so many better restaurants in Easton to go to.

    I made a reservation but when we got there they couldn't find it. I found it for them. I asked for a high table they did not have it available sent us to another table which no waitress showed up. We hunted down one who came and was helpful. We sat for 15 minutes before anyone showed up that is when we hunted someone down. Food was okay . I will never use open table again and won't go toPearly Bakers again.

    I want to preface this with 2 things: my husband is a small business owner and I don’t take lightly giving a bad review right now; also, I was a server for 13 years and very much understand the intricacies of restaurants and have a lot of patience with problems that arise. We had a 6 pm reservation on Sat., 3/5. We were seated in the front on the stage. Our server, although nice, was not good. We barely had time to look at the menu and he was already there asking for our order. We ordered an appetizer and he never came back to take our food order so we waited until we received the appetizer and told the food runner or manager (not sure) that we hadn’t ordered which then got him back to our table. Our meals came out and within 3 minutes he came over asking if we wanted anything else. We explained we just started. He came over every 3-5 minutes after that. Our entire meal was disrupted by our server who would not let us sit and eat. He took my meal and didn’t wrap it like I asked, a $30 meal I didn’t finish was just thrown away. We ordered dessert and coffee. Then as we were served dessert we were told we needed to leave the table and pay. I didn’t have 1 bite of dessert. We realized after that it’s because you have live music. WHY would you seat us somewhere that needs to be free in 90 minutes and at least tell us that before we order? Or, better yet, why not seat us in the back room? We ordered a bottle of wine, appetizer, 2 meals (not burgers), dessert, coffee. Over $100 and we didn’t get to eat or enjoy our food. I’m angry enough that I’m going to dismiss the bank charges. As soon as you saw what we were ordering, you should have known it would take us more time to eat. Also we split a bottle of wine and needed time before we drove. There were many ways this could have been handled better, but instead we were basically robbed of our food and time to eat it.

    Sever was clueless and slow. The 3 bartenders couldn't get drinks out and the place was not busy. One bar tender looked high. Food was warm at best and just not good. My 2nd glass of wine was only a 1/4 filled and my friends drink that should have been severed in a martini glass was served in a high ball. Overall a very disappointing meal. We won't ever go back or recommend.

    I made a reservation for a regular table but due to a party of 45 in the back we were seated in a high top table by the bar. The only downfall was, as 2 adults and 3 kids, our table size was a little small so when my kids spread their coloring out it took up the whole table. Appetizers were delicious and kids food came out pretty fast, but then we waited at least another 20 minutes for our entrees to come out. My husband salmon was delicious, my lobster pasta was good but with maybe eight pieces of tiny chewy pieces of lobster, I was slightly disappointed. The server seemed very new but super nice. I totally understand lack of staff so service was a little slower than normal but it certainly was not his fault nor the restaurants. Overall we would come back but definitely be more selective in what we were ordering and the timing on how it came out to our table.
