Despite its location in a modest strip mall, the Pearl is a real treasure. At our most recent visit, three of us shared three appetizers, two entrées and two desserts. The chicken dumplings, the duck confit lettuce wraps, and the Thai nodles were particularly memorable. Our server, Abigail, was friendly, knowledgable and attentive.

The restaurant has a limited number of tables but a long oyster bar. The menu had an eclectic mix of Asian fusion food and a wide choice of oysters. Everyone in our group of 6 enjoyed the food. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful. The decor is very plain.

Interesting food. Eclectic mixture of different eats. Nice drink menu with many different beers. A small place that can get noisy at times. Friendly and personable wait staff. A good place to have dinner with friends. Saturday and Sunday are busy so plan accordingly.

I have eaten at the Pearl probably six or seven times in the last six months and each time it's really been quite nice. I've gone Solo and with friends and all of our meals have been excellent. The chicken dish is delicious. All meals have a wonderful Asian fusion. Service is always right on spot. My only complaint is... More

Oysters fresh and delicious but pricey. Narrow restaurant, limited space and a bit too loud at times. Overall, I believe the venue is average at best.

Asian fusion and oysters. Full bar. Reliably good. Surprisingly located in strip mall but decent decor. Can get crowded and loud. Terrace in summer without view but quieter than inside when crowded. Crunchy oysters, Ahi tuna and Panko cod are the things to order.

I love the menu and the food at Pearl but I don't enjoy having dinner where I have to yell so my dining companion can hear me. I wish they could do something about the noise level when they are super busy (which is most of the time!). We mostly get take-out because of the noise. They do have some... More

My wife and I stopped by for a beer and snack. We had the Tom Yum Soup and the Hanoi Nems as well as a beer and martini. The atmosphere was warm and friendly, the food was very good.

We were taken here by friends for dinner. As soon as we walked in I knew we were in for a treat. The venue felt great. Cosy and clean and I could smell beautiful Asian herbs being used in the kitchen. We were greeted by owner Russell and took our seats. Specials were explained and we ordered wines and cocktails....
