I recently attended a birthday party here and enjoyed the ambiance and food. Good selection of wines and their mixologist seems very competent. They even did a vegan veggie taco plate that was impressive with freshly made rustic corn tortillas and grilled veggies...delish!

Amazingly gourmet pork chop! I highly recommend! They also have an interesting assortment of artisan beers (I tried three). Great, warm atmosphere too! Service was really good and the host lady at the front door is an aspiring table drummer! Delightful solo adventure!

Having eaten out well in San Diego I decided to eat in by the Pearl poolside bar on my last night. I now wish I had tried more of their menu as the pork chop was truly the best I have had in a very long time... well presented and an imaginative bouquet of flavours and garnishes. The Brussel sprout... More

Trying to be trendy in a small footprint. Service very good. Entrees were less-than-acceptable. We ordered the priciest items only to find them over cooked and bland.

Had dinner on Valentine's day with some friends; the place is like being in a far away expensive resort. It has a pool on the side of the restaurant and it is also a small hotel. The food was great, the atmosphere and the service were great. I will definitely will come back with my wife to this restaurant and... More

The restaurant is fantastic. Many locals frequent this restaurant. It overlooks the pool and there is wonderful outside seating by the pool. There is indoor seating as well but that seating opens up to the pool as well. The cocktails are fun and hip and unique. My favorite is the pearlific pear. For food I recommend the brussel sprouts and... More

The menu is surprising delicious. Some Hotels have an average menu but I have been back just to dine with a group of friends because the food was so good.

Dinner was served buffet style for a wedding reception, and everyone seemed pretty satisfied with the selection and quality of food! At brunch, the kitchen was clearly overwhelmed by the volume (food took FOREVER to arrive, and arrived cold), and the chef admitted to our table that he just doesn't like to do brunch.

Very small restaurant area. Wouldn't have been that bad if it hadn't been raining so everyone was trying to crowd inside. Food was average. Service was as good as it could be since people were standing in the way of the servers. Music was exceptionally loud. Had to yell across the table and still had difficulty hearing. And then the...
