I went to The Pearl for the first time, during happy hour. I’m from Florida so I love seafood, but in Ohio I’ve found that’s hard to come by. I saw the happy hour prices and I went to try out the oysters. This is by far the best seafood place I’ve tried in Ohio, and I can’t wait to come back. Our waiter suggested a more briney and salty oyster, and so I took his suggestion. I was super impressed and in awe by the presentation of our dish. I’ll definitely be coming back.

This place is your typical Short North place. The food was delicious and the crowd noise was expected after the long closures. The only rub I have is for the service, which is delayed and they seem annoyed if you have any questions about the menu, and for the serving size of the dinners the prices were astronomical. I had the hanger steak and an old fashioned, she had shrimp and grits and a Moscow mule. Total price before tip was $110, take off the drinks and it’s still around $90. Not to terrible EXCEPT I was still hungry and so was she and not the “oh that was so good I want more” hungry.

Again, I will say the food was delicious and the place semi-unique but nothing stood out against the typical short north and made me think man I want to go back there and with the price for quantity of the food, I probably won’t go back.

I was delighted to see reasonable precautions (ie. Seamless check-in, transparent dividers, QR code menu, staff enforcing mask requirements) put in place to keep guests safe. My server, Andrew was very cordial and attentive. I was pleased by the quality of the seafood options (clams, mussels, oysters, crab)—and that I could hear my date speak. I’ll definitely be back.

We had a great experience at the Pearl. We really enjoyed our cocktails and the food was amazing. We highly recommend the deviled eggs, jalapeno cornbread, and tator tots. The service was fast, even though it was busy because of Valentines day. We highly recommend and will be back!

Brought my daughter here for Valentine’s dinner because she loves oysters. They were a hit! 🥰 The food is always delicious exactly as the chef recommends. I love the combinations of flavors that they come up with here! The ambiance is quite lovely. 🍓 Don’t forget desert, the Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie was the perfect finish!

To start off with the environment was great. Everyone in the restaurant was socially distanced. It was restaurant week so it was a small menu, but we were both happy with our choices. The food was great, the service was good. I'll go again soon.

I don't know why it took us so long to get here. We ended up snagging a 4:30 reservation since it was Restaurant Week. Turns out it was still Happy Hour! Total win!
Everything we tried, from the baked oysters to the clam chowder to the Low Country Shrimp Boil was amazing. We will be back soon.

I was very disappointed in the crowd of people waiting to be seated in the front lobby area. After all, we are dealing with covid and a pandemic. I saw Cameron Mitchell on CNN and saw him talk about reopening and having guests wear a mask till seated to protect the staff. But what about the guests? I was mortified to see so may people on a cold night gathered in the lobby waiting for their table. we had reservations at 815 pm and purposely arrived at about 811pm, and did not sit down till 825pm. I was nervous waiting in the lobby and even went out into the cold. Again, I was disappointed to see this while a covid crisis is taking place. way too many people close together in the lobby!
