    Our first time at this restaurant, and we’re already looking forward to coming back! We asked for a quiet seating area to celebrate a birthday, the staff accommodated our request and throughout the evening the service was great as they anticipated all our needs without being too present. The food was delicious and pleasantly presented. The ingredients were of high quality and the preparation was impeccable. The portions’ size are perfect to enjoy the variety and balance of flavors. All complemented by an excellent wine list. Timing of service was great and we never felt rushed. Overall affordable considering the high quality offered, the attention to details and the dedicated service. Worth of mention is the professional, yet warm service from the whole staff. The waiter who was looking after our table is a gentleman from Croatia who gave us a lot of time for chats and very attentive service, despite the restaurant was busy.

    We dine in the Pearl twice a year and it’s always been excellent, this time we think it’s slipped away from the excellent standard it’s been. The food is good and the service is good but I think it’s not the same quality and standards that we have been used to for value for money. We had a expensive bottle of wine which was served in the table wine glasses which was not the normal standard but still very nice.

    The Chef’s tasting menu was a creative series of dishes, with flavors from around the world, and the fine wine pairing was perfectly complimentary to each dish. The servers were great, with charming senses of humor, and added to the overall wonderful experience. Highly recommend and will def do it again when I’m in Dublin.

    Firstly this is one of my favourite restaurants in Ireland not just Dublin and I’ve eaten here many times over many years. Dinner after the rugby debacle may not have been the best timing choice too. Asked for one of the booths as they are so calm and cosy, love them. First was the noise - major resurfacing at Merrion row Baggot Street junction - this of course is not anything to do with restaurant however they could have pre-warned that your soul would be shaken several times every few minutes like a trip over bouncy water in a row boat. Ordered Roquefort started John stone fillet and crème brûlée. Roquefort started was too much Roquefort and I couldn’t finish - needed more balance to lot of soft cheese . Steak was cooked beautifully however my plate was unfortunately covered in blood as meat wasn’t rested. Crème brûlée was vanilla and quite non descript - tasted of nothing Massively disappointing- never had a below par meal here before and would have to think long and hard before considering again which is even more of a disappointment.

    I ate here with friends last year at the end of an annual conference. Was so good we rebooked for this year and added more friends. The food is amazing, the chef accommodating to Allergies, the staff totally on top Of things. As a native New Yorker we can be spoiled and this restaurant exceeds my expectations each time! Everyone was duly impressed. See you next year!!

    Went here for our one year anniversary and pre-arranged a booth. The whole team was easy to deal with, polite and very friendly. We had a lovely experience (as a couple that wouldn’t fine dine often) and will definitely be back in the future. I would highly recommend for anyone celebrating a special occasion.

    Great meal! Service was excellent, friendly and unobtrusive. Loved our table, was perfect for having a conversation without shouting, so was very private too. The lighting at our table was a little bland it could have been improved with a small central light source, just to improve the ambience? This is just a minor criticism and not of any real importance. Overall, it was excellent
