Please excuse the construction debris. Our Valet Service is still available during normal hours and the garage behind us on West Russell is also open for business as usual. The City of Columbus is beautifying the Short North and construction is a bit of a mess out front. Thank you for your understanding.
We also offer a fantastic Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00-3:00
Too much dressing on the salads.
We love this place, which is why we keep coming back. The food is always fantastic and the service is always impeccable. The hanger steak, short ribs, shrimp & grits, and jalapeño spoon bread are our personal favorites. The only thing we don’t love about the Pearl is that the tables are closer together than we would like. They are close enough that conversations don’t feel very private. Apart from that, it is wonderful and is one of our favorite restaurants in Columbus.
Everything was perfect steak was soooo flavorful! Definitely would visit this restaurant again
The food was average, service was good, lighting was exceptionally dim, and the volume level was really loud. Not the dining experience I was expecting from a Cameron Mitchell restaurant. With so many other better dining options in the city, I probably won't go back.
Fantastic! Not disappointed!
LOVE the Pearl, the food is great, the staff is awesome and we love making a 2 hr drive to dine there!
We used to love this place but unfortunately, the last couple of times we have visited, we've noticed the quality of the food has changed. We've inquired with management about it and they said they would look into it. For us, it is a huge disappointment as we used to come to this restaurant for this particular dish, which has significantly changed. It is obvious, lower quality produce is being used to now make this dish.
The overall experience was excellent. My date and I went for weekend brunch. She had one of the specialty omelettes (which she greatly enjoyed), and I had the chicken and waffles, which were delicious and came in a hearty portion. The server was attentive and very helpful. After we ordered, he returned to inform us that the smoked salmon they were using that day (which was for my date's omelette) wasn't quite up to usual snuff. Definitely appreciated this attention to detail. The decor had rustic yet smooth touches: subtle chrome light fixtures, dark wood shelving, mason drinking jars, tealights at each table. The Pearl is equally great for date night or a casual brunch. I look forward to more visits.
Excellent food in a fun buzzy setting
First time there, great service by Allie. Oysters and shrimp and grits and scallops were our entrees. Will be back!
Loved it and will absolutely be back! Such a Columbus gem!
This might be my favorite and the best restaurant in Columbus. We went for a celebratory brunch on 9/9/18. Everything was excellent from our fantastic server Andrew. I recommend all of the following: Adult Tater Tots; Parmasian crusted Oysters; Clam Chowder; Chicken and Waffles; Hanger Steak; and a pie that I don't remember the name but it is like a bread pie (brown sugar and butter) that we all called "Crack Pie". I will be back real soon!
Perfect place....for anything
Brendan and Patrick are exceptional at the bar. Definitely recommend the Ramos Gin Fizz, it’s delicious!
Overall great experience for my wife’s birthday. Very friendly and good food. Space is a little tight but was good atmosphere for our occasion.
Jordan (AKA Stuart) was a fantastic server. The Jalapeño sweet spoon bread and devils on horseback were delicious. We ordered the shellfish tower. It was interesting to sample from different regions and actually taste how each one had a different flavor depending on the area it came from. Lastly, we tried both the Cookiedough pie and the Grasshopper one. The Grasshopper pie was by far our favorite. Definitely leave room for desert if you have a sweet tooth. Our server informed us they run different specials a couple nights (Thursdays are oyster night) worth looking into if you want an amazing meal but don’t want to swing full price.
Three year wedding anniversary
Short and sweet. We love sitting at the oyster bar to eat and what the experts prepare meals! Love everything we have enjoyed at The Pearl.
I had the catch of the day which was Barramundi with Kim Chee Fried rice. I was crazy good!
Excellent service. The oysters are expensive but delicious. Many of the appetizers were very good (including the tater tots and cornbread), but all four people in our party where disappointed with our entrees. Both the roasted and fried chicken dishes were under-seasoned and underwhelming. I’d come back for appetizers and the nice atmosphere, but not for dinner.
Our expectation was not met. Food was substandard at price. We've tried to get reservations on occasion, this was first time we did. No further interest.
The food was fine. I felt rushed though, as my appetizer and food came out at basically the same time.
Everything was great. Service seemed a little slow but the food was awesome so ok to have to wait a bit.
Great experience! Would visit again in the future!
4 gals went for a GNO and to celebrate a BD. Fun time!
As usual, the food was fantastic. Thee of the four members of my party had never been there and were quite pleased, so a great first impression. The only negative thoughts was despite booking on Open Table, we had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated and we were seated in the bar area. Once we started the drinks and apps, all was well. Quick friendly service and a great meal.
The early bird specials are well worth eating early. It is the only place in town that has great oysters. Always a great spot for birthday celebrations.
Great meal! Get the short rib!!
The waiter was superb. His description of the food was passionate and candid. He did not miss a beat and never tired to up sell us. We did that all by ourselves, lol. The food was just fabulous. I wish I lived here because I would be a regular. Thx Jordan and chef’s!
Fantastic, the roast chicken and steak were absolutely amazing!
Awesome, chicken and waffles were great as usual!
I had to have 50characters for my review. Simply Awesome says it all. Simply Awesome says it all. Simply Awesome says it all. Simply Awesome says it all.
The Pearl is one of our favorite restaurants. Food, service and atmosphere are always outstanding !
What a pleasant experience! From the hostess to the bar staff to the waitress, we were treated as guests rather than customers. The food was very good and arrived promptly after ordering. The oysters were excellent.
Some of the best seafood (and food in general) I've had in Columbus. Well worth a visit!
Brady was a great waiter! Kept the oysters drinks and appetizers coming. Nice guy.
Really liked the deco. Upscale gastro-pub vibe. Nice cocktail, beer, and wine selection. Appetizers were great. Especially the fried and broiled oysters. Next time I’m in town, I’ll have to stop back in for more.
had the shrimp and grits and it was delicious. It was a small plate but still worth it based on deliciousness
The chicken and waffles were good but not as good as before the receipt change.
Great food as usual and the service is always excellent!
