The Pearl Room is an elegant restaurant that serves Italian cuisine. The restaurant is popular for its steak and seafood. It has a brightly lit room due to the huge floor to ceiling windows, which offers a beautiful view of its garden. The restaurant has an award winning bar, which has won twelve ‘Excellence' awards from the year 2004 to 2015 by the Wine Spectator Award. It has also won the 2015 Michelin Award for its sun-streaked dining area.
The Pearl Room has a prix-fixe menu for lunch, brunch and bar. Along with chicken, pork and seafood entrées, the restaurant also offers vegan and gluten free dishes. Some of its popular dishes are meatball parmigiana hero and chicken rollatini hero. The Pearl Room hosts three weekly events, which include Thursday karaoke night, Friday Salsa and Sangria night and Saturday disc night.
When we arrived, the restaurant didn't have a record of our reservation despite my having a confirmation email. Then, 3 of our party ordered the fried chicken and all three plates contained pieces of very undercooked chicken. When the manager came out to explain, he apologized and offered free pie that never came. Not a great night for the Pearl.
There was only one table with 2 people seated when we arrived. We only ordered entrees and it took 50 minutes for our food to arrive. One specific dish--Macadamia Coconut encrusted fillet was brought to our table and it was only fillet of sole with paprika on it. The waiter said that was how it was supposed to be ???
Had late afternoon reservations. Restaurant was fairly empty. Food was good, but very slow service. We weren't in a rush but lunch took over 2 hrs.
We felt restaurant was more for a bar crowd at nite
Once again the Pearl Room did not disappoint! This is one of my favorite restaurants in Brooklyn. My friends took me here for my birthday and as always the food was awesome! Anthony (the owner) knowing it was my birthday sent over champagne and wonderful, warm, homemade chocolate truffles to the table for us. It is the perfect place to celebrate, you can not ask for better food or service!.
We were very disappointed in the restaurant. It had an overall strange smell upon entering (a mixture of food and bathroom deodorizer?) and they were playing late 70s-80s top dance hits which was a strange choice and didn't enhance the dining experience. The food was mediocre, probably microwaved frozen food. The staff was really very nice and accommodating, and the tables were set very beautifully, but other than that, meh.
We were there with our 3 years old for dinner. The staffs are super nice and friendly. We love the space, with the outdoor feel to it and the romantic feel in the indoor. The food was awesome, my husband loves them. The bartender was very sweet. We will recommend our friends to go there for sure.
Anthony out did himself with relocation of his 15 year establishment only a few blocks from his original location and brought The Pearl Room back to Bay Ridge with a vibrant and exciting menu.
I was introduced with two notable wines which are worth mentioning, Peju and Ghost Waltz,2012.
Try them and you will not be disappointed.
Dining experience was so bad that it has become a running joke among our friends. I would like to chalk it up to the fact that we were there not long after they re-opened in their new location; but I don't think that it is fixable. I won't be back to find out.
Must say that we really felt like Bay Ridge regulars from the moment we arrived and were greeted enthusiastically to as we left when the Executive Chef, Anthony Rinaldi, invited us to join the party at the bar for some champagne and cheer. They’ve just moved to new digs and they have created a very hospitable place – kind of like “Boston Cheers” meets “Bay Ridge Pearl Room.” The food and drink were good – delicious blue point oysters, well-prepared martinis, a classic wedge salad followed by Penne a la Vodka with Chicken and Ginger lime shrimp. A stop at the Pearl Room is a little bit of Manhattan with a clearly Brooklyn vibe.
Waiters where not experience. Waited long time for food to come out. Food did not have much seasoning. Very bland.
Reasonably priced and beautifully cooked entrees with large portions. The raw bar was fine but overpriced, and the service excellent.
We went for my boyfriend's 49th birthday dinner. He is not a drinker but he followed my lead we started with a Raspberry Chocolate Martini. WONDERFUL! Then peppercorn calamari, veggie spring rolls, organic steak and lobster risotto.
Every bite was as wonderful as the last. He had a beautiful evening and I'm very happy. We'll be back at your new location! !!
The Pearl Room never disappoints. Excellent , attentive service. The seafood appetizer for 2 was delicious. Dinners were very tasty. The house Pinot Grigio was very good. I always have a great meal at The Pearl Room
Went there for dinner with another couple. The short ribs I had were great and everyone enjoyed their dinner. However, at 10 pm a DJ and music started and it was impossible to hold a conversation. We might have lingered a little more as the ambiance was nice up until the pounding music.
After having a terrible experience at a restaurant for New Years EVE dinner but being too tired to make a New Years DAY Dinner, I decided to take my family out for New Years Day at the Pearl Room. From the minute we got in until the moment we left, we were treated like gold. The menu was interested and varied, and the space is comfortable. I had been there before (but years ago) and forgot what a nice place it is. Sarah, the manager, made our New Years Day extra special, and our waiter and the busboys were so fantastic. They really knew how to provide service and make us feel comfortable, which we especially noticed after being treated poorly at a very reputable restaurant the night before. So one restaurant ended our year in aggravation, but the Pearl Room got us off to a very good start! I can't wait to go back and whole-heartedly recommend this neighborhood gem to anyone who values a good meal and a memorable dining experience.
New Year's Eve is always a tough night to dine out. My husband and I were optimistic about Pearl Room but it disappointed on all fronts. The limited menu should have been easy to execute but the food was subpar and slow to come out. The butternut squash soup tasted like puréed sweet potato pie. The mozzarella en corrozza tasted like a frozen appetizer. The wine included in open bar was swill, & there is no way I drank $90 worth of anything. The waitress was overwhelmed and kept apologizing instead of doing her job. It's sad that we had a negative experience as the Pearl Room has bee around for a long time. I may give it another chance on a random day & hope they redeem themselves.
The dishes tasted home made and were delectable. Fusilli with meat, Shrimp risotto, fillet of sole, and salmon were delicious. The appetizer of home made mozzarella and seafood salad were equally delectable. Tiramisu, cheesecake and ice cream were all perfect. We will be back.
Other than sitting next to a table that had two children who were a bit wild (and I do have my own children ) , everything else about dinner was perfect! No one and I mean no one can animate a specials menu like Donna , fantastic at her job .The rest of the staff was excellent !
Restaurant was very understaffed but the food was excellent !
nice quiet atmosphere. food was not spectacular but good. Did not have the wine I chose, but alternative was good. Waitress too close.
This restaurant has been around a long time, the food is good, service is good, they have a nice bar in the front, music on Saturday nights, one of those places you can never go wrong. Rumor has it they are moving a couple of blocks away.
I have been coming here for years. I am never disappointed with the quality or variety of items on the menu. I have also hosted parties here. The owner truly cares about his customers, great restaurant!
The restaurant was kind of dead due to Labor Day weekend but we didn't mind it.... We got a big private booth and it was nice.... The food was outstanding and the service was great and very helpful with suggestions..... Deff going back...
I've been to Pearl Room a dozen times over the last few years. Food is always good and the wait staff is friendly, but the last two times I felt like a refugee, exiled to the small side room instead of the main dining room. This time there was a medical presentation goung on in the room, so instead of friendly conversation we were subjected to a medical lecylture. They were filming "Chopped" and the camera man whopped me in the head with a cable. Paying guests seemed unimportant in the face of being on TV. The bill was $250 without drinks. Next time I'll take my money where I will be treated better. I hope the show is worth it, Anthony. :(
Appetizers were good. Minimal wine list. Main courses nothing special. Servers were clumsy. Several times things were spilled on one of us at the table. No recommendations from us!
The Pearl Room is simply wonderful. I always bring my parents here and start our evening with oysters and a cocktail. The staff is delightful and anything you order will be absolutely delicious.
I was disappointed and surprised this Restaurant could not come up with a Bottle of Prosecco, one of the most Popular wines on the Restaurant scene today.
The appetizers were fair, the house made mozzarella was dry and didn't taste typically warm and fresh.
My main course of Grilled Tuna over Arugula and Tomato was a large salad with a pretty small Tuna portion, it looked like appetizer size, the tuna although cooked rare lacked charring and flavor.
Me and my significant other definitely enjoyed the blue point oysters and little necks. We did not so much enjoy the crab and avocado Napoleon. The main course was pretty good as well and the waiter definitely knew a lot of the items on the menu of the top of his head. He has presented all the items to sound really good.
We have been dinning at The Pearl Room for well over 10 years for all our special occasions.
The food is always prepared as if the kitchen was cooking you a private meal.
Anthony makes sure every cones out if the kitchen just perfect before it is presented to your table.
I like consistency.
The food is fantastic.
What else to say............awesome!!!🍷🍴
We chose this restaurant because it was supposedly had a good reputation. We booked to ensure a good table telling them it was a special occasion.
We were given a table next to the kitchen. I would have objected given the number of empty tables available if I had actually realized this before we were seated. Once seated, I did not want to make a fuss and upset any of my guests. Regrettably, we were subjected to the banging and clanking of pots and waiters traipsing past all night.
If there has been some ambient music it might have been a bit better but there was nothing except some sounds coming from the bar area. No matter, the tradesman who started hammering on the ceiling in the next room helped drown that out.
The service was a bit amateur. They were nice, friendly people but I really expected more experience. Serve from the left guys, take away from the right! Don't reach across the table to fill glasses or remove dishes. Don't remove people's plates unless they say they are finished or their knife and fork are in the "finished" position. Does no-one train anyone anymore?
Menu needs some balance. Not many vegetarian options. Not much in the way of desserts.
However they had lots of specials in addition to the menu. So many it would have been better to include them as an insert o the menu than expect people to listen to a long list especially given the noise.
All up a disappointing experience.
