Waiting staff was awesome, attentive, nice and all around excellent. This is my second time coming and definitely plan on being back.
We had a server named Chris. Great dude! He told us all about the menu. Was super attentive to our table needs. Very personable and made for an overall fantastic experience! We will go back for sure and request a table in his section!!
Our evening at the Pearl was excellent! The server was knowledgeable, friendly and provided just the right level of service. As always the food was amazing. I'm a fan of the Clam Chowder and also enjoyed 4 different types of raw oysters this time. Can't wait til next visit.
The Peach Bellini's are DELISH! The egg and grits were phenomenal (I suggest adding cheese to eggs if you like that). But delicious nonetheless. Topped off the lunch with Tia Maria on ice. .....
We had a great time sitting in the window people-watching!
Great dinner all around. A little pricey on the cocktails but very good quality.
Love The Pearl! Only complaint is the high mark up on wine compared to other restaurants. Service is always 100 % We enjoyed the fish and chips and hanger steak both were excellent! The daily special of walleye was good but not memorable.
The food was amazing! Benjamin provided us with fantastic service and had wonderful recommendations.
Always EXCELLENT. The food, atmosphere and service are spot on!
we stopped by before a concert and found the happy Hour menu a great value, so mostly we ordered from that and got some good deals on drinks as well. They have many seafood options and many are stated as "Market Price", so they may be somewhat more pricey, as one special for Walleye was stated to be $36. Found the quality of food very good.,
Our server Eric was world class and made our experience both delicious and memorable!
One of Cameron Mitchell’s best! Great deal for Happy Hour! We will definitely be back!
Great food selection. Beer selection could improve.
The restaurant was beautiful the service was great and the food was phenomenal. My only input would be larger portions of the appetizers. The deviled eggs and jalapeño spoon bread were amazing. Just wish there was more of it.
The Pearl is a Short North Gem with highly innovative and exceptional cuisine, great gastro pub atmosphere, and impeccable service. The Fish & Chips are the best in Columbus.
My friend and I hadn’t been to brunch at The Pearl for quite a long time and I forgot what I was missing! Matt was an amazing server. He was very attentive and conversational. Between Moscow Mules, Deviled Eggs, Juevos Racheros, Oysters, and Banana Cream Pie I went home more than happy, but ready for a nap. I hope we’ll be able to be back in soon!
We loved this place! Atmosphere was great, food was great, and the service was excellent-our waitress was very attentive but not overly chatty. She arrived at our table within minutes of us sitting down with a glass of champagne in hand for my fiancé (it was her birthday). Can’t wait to go back!
I met a friend for dinner at The Pearl on 3/6/18. Dinner was terrific. I had the pub burger cooked slightly better than medium. It was fantastic—perfectly cooked and quite tasty with the bacon and cheese. I paired the burger with the tater tots (you’ll have to ask)—best tots ever. They are definitely not frozen and from a bag.
Service was excellent. Benjamin was our server. He was kind, informative, attentive but not ever over-bearing.
My friend told me about the Cameron Mitchell restaurant’s “chocolate milkshake” approach to service. It was on full display. I highly recommend giving The Pearl a try.
A group of seven on a Sunday evening enjoyed delicious meals prepared perfectly. We had Southern Fried Chicken, shrimp and grits, spinach salad, and Cuban sandwiches. The cinnamon rolls served with the chicken were amazing ... a bit sinful actually. The appetizers were amazing, especially the deviled eggs. Our beverages were very good also. We will be back and would definitely recommend .
Nice place, unique decor. Food was very good. Nice treat for my college students birthday
Love this place! The food is always excellent and fresh. If you like oysters, this is the best place in town. We got sat about 30 minutes after our reservation but our server Andrew was awesome
John is the man. Perfect flow of service.
We had a reservation at 7pm on Saturday evening. The same weekend as the Arnold Classic and Gallery Hop. They were running a bit behind but they handled it beautifully. They provided complementary drinks and an appetizer as we waited. Then when we were seated they provided a few complementary appetizers without hesitation. They truly care about their patrons and quality service. We had a great experience and a delicious meal.
Service was great! food was great! Tables were too close together and noise level was a little loud. I would go again and recommend for others.
We dine here often. Favorite Short North location. Our server, Eric, was outstanding.
Food is always amazing.
HANDS DOWN IT WAS A GREAT ESTABLISHMENT. THE FOOD WAS FUN, DIFFERENT, AND SERVED HOT. IT WAS A SPECIAL MOMENT FOR ONE OF MY FRIENDS WITH A PARTY OF 6 AND WE HAD A BALL!.
I have always loved going to The Pearl but this time I saw they have foie gras on the menu... I’m not sure if this was a new item or if I was seeing it for the first time. I was very disappointed by this due to the inhumane way ducks and geese are treated in order to make foie gras. There are so many other delicious options out there. I have full confidence the chefs at Cameron Mitchell’s restaurants are capable of creating something wonderful without resorting to this poor treatment of animals.
Service and food were outstanding. Tables were a little too close and personal space was awkward. Noise level was high if you’re looking for a quieter place for conversation.
The food is very good and is accompanied by a great atmosphere. Highly recommend the pub burger and tots. One should definitely go for the happy hour as Cameron makes it worth your while. Great location
2nd time eating there in 3 days. Food is great!
Superb experience. Could not have been a better Sunday-Funday actually. Got together with my sister and a good friend, and we honestly could have stayed there until close. However, it was getting busier, and we did not want to hog our table any longer, as we had already been there for five hours! Service was impeccable. I wish I could remember our server’s name because she was so exceptional with timing and all things considered when it comes to serving, and it just added to the whole day. The Pearl, time and again, always proves to be one of the best restaurants in Columbus.
Love the Pearl every time we are in Columbus! Great food, great choices on the brunch menu!
This was my second visit to the restaurant I have to say it's one of my favorites now the food is fresh and hot! Our server was nice and on top of his job!
Don't get the raw clams on the seafood tower - sub oysters instead. Otherwise, delicious!
Made reservation for 6:30 pm and arrived a little early at 10 minutes before 6 pm. The hostess indicated they would seat us as soon as possible. However, had to wait until 6:30 while other walk-in customers were seated ahead of us. We thought that was tacky since we did make a reservation. It seems they would have seated us first and then make walk-in customers wait.
This is hands down our favorite restaurant in Columbus, we come here as often as we can. We both ordered the strip steak tonight and were surprised at the poor quality of cuts. Both of our steaks were really fatty with a tendon running right through the center leaving much of the steak inedible. We’re always so excited for a night out at our favorite spot, so we were disappointed, especially at 40 bucks a pop. Definitely not our usual experience here, hoping it was just a fluke.
Love love love the Pearl. Every. Time. I'm never let down by the Pearl. Try the short ribs!
Really unique dining experience. A little loud at times, but overall great ambiance... Food was exceptional and the deserts were memorable!!! I highly recommend dining here whenever you are in Columbus...
We had oysters and they were great. The special was excellent and the drinks were perfect. Save room for the home made pies
