There was a hydrocarbon odor throughout the restaurant. We ordered a bottle of wine and it was bad. The food was mediocre with the jambalaya the worst. How did this restaurant end up on open table?

The Pig and The Pearl is a nice restaurant, with great service! Set in the midst of Atlantic Station, there is ample parking and nice scenery. I enjoyed the turkey sandwich for brunch. My friends and I also took advantage of the bottomless mimosas—which are competitively priced btw! I would recommend you check this place out. However, pls be aware that the atmosphere is quite casual. Also, as the name implies, there is a lot of pork and beef items on the menu. They have a decent selection of seafood. Last, Our waitress Leslie provided one of the best and enjoyable service experiences I’ve had in a longtime!

Good food but a little pricey. We visited here for dinner and returned for brunch, it was just ok. But our server Latoya was awesome, knowledgeable and friendly.

First time there. Everyone was so nice. Loved our waitress. The food was so good. That Alabama sauce I could eat on everything. I would definitely recommend this place for some upscale BBQ

Our server Jenny L was so pleasant and we had a lot of changes due to dietary restrictions. She asked questions, made recommendations and did everything with a smile. It was a little busy due to brunch but she was so prompt you would have never known.
I would definitely recommend and ask for Jenny L.

I was very disappointed in my cosmopolitan cocktail. It did not taste anything like a cosmo. I had to ask for fresh lime (it was served with lemon????) and a shot of cranberry juice just to make it drinkable.

Our server Tray/Trey/Tre/Trea was understanding to our right schedule and immediately could see we were trying to cram dinner in before a movie. We got our food quickly and were able to get out the door.

No longer my go-to Sunday brunch restaurant. The worst customer service EVER. Our sever (name starts with L) made my party so uncomfortable she was very standoffish and nonchalant. She didn’t even want to answer any questions about the menu!
I returned expecting to be serviced by Tray who is great every time but he was not there.

My favorite server every time I host guests in Atlanta is Tray. I always rave about the stupendous service and experience Tray provides. If I ever go back (which I highly doubt) I’ll call before arriving to assure that Tray will be our server. If not, I’ll go elsewhere to enjoy brunch with my large party.

My first visit to the restaurant for a business meeting. The service and food were okay. The noise level was a lot louder than we expected. I will go back for social gatherings not serious business meetings.

While the restaurant is clean and the food was good - it might have been the worst service I’ve ever had. Most likely due to the server - who brought my daughter NOTHING that she ordered but didn’t correct that or remove it from our bill. Our drinks stayed empty and no one asked us if we need anything (we had no salt or pepper for the entire meal). Multiple attempts to pay and the server couldn’t remember which card belonged to who and even came with the bill but not my credit card!!! It was pretty bad...

Took 45 minutes to get our drinks: a beer and a wine. Server was rude when we inquired re: status. Food was semi cold and nothing to write home about. Son said slaw tasted like the mayo had turned bad. All around a bad experience.

Our waitress was great. I would want her to serve us on our next visit. We came on a Sunday with reservations at doors opening/11:30. Will order brunch next time because people who came in after us were getting served their meals long before we did. It was mentioned that there was a rush on brunch. That was the only thing I could knock any points off for. Great place to enjoy with family and will try again.

I’m rather selective about BBQ. But this pulled shoulder was delicious ... and without any added sauce. Our server was the best ... so friendly and made this a wonderful dining experience for my first time at The Pig and the Pearl. I wish I had gotten his name so I can give him a shout-out. The Host was also so nice ... he got our group of 8 in one hour early and prevented us from simply killing time between these show and dinner.
Yes, I’ll remember this place and will be back during another Atlanta trip.

Everything started off fine until I received my drink and everything went downhill. I ordered an alcoholic drink that I had never had before And requested NO PINEAPPLE JUICE , took a sip and tasted pineapple juice the waitress stated, she didn’t think it had pineapple juice in it because it shouldn’t, I asked if I can get something else or just have the bartender remake it. She responds and says “No, we don’t buy back drinks??? .....Ma’am we have a party of 11 and no one is asking you to buy back the drink.

BUT to avoid any type of argument, the drink remained on the table UNTOUCHED. So now my mood and 3 of my coworkers mood who witnessed this interaction has changed because of her comment. As we spoke and decided no need to involve the manager as we were still trying to enjoy ourselves before the Cirque du Soliel show, my food comes and my Mac and cheese has no season and my fries are burnt... How do I know??, my daughters food comes out a little bit before mine and her fries are fine, I even tasted a couple ..... I’m definitely not gonna bring this to the waitress attention because she was already running around (I asked for salt and pepper but never received it, my daughter waited 5mins for mustard and my coworker waited 10 mins for napkins) and since the waitress initially told me they didn’t buy back a $5 drink, I was sure they wouldn’t remake or as she termed it “BUY BACK” my fries or Mac & Cheese. So those items as well remained untouched. I definitely will not revisit this establishment again. The waitress made no effort to fix what I thought was a minor thing..... her comment was unexpected and especially not to even try/ attempt to correct the issue didn’t make things better. And the cooks obviously don’t pay attention or care what they send out to the tables/ patrons.
