    The Teriyaki Octopus was terrific, and the Pork Piri Piri was spectacular! My wife had the catch of the day it was the Mahi Mahi and it was also very very good. Great place we will certainly be back!

    Andrew was a great server! He explained the menu well and made great recommendations. Everything was delicious. Recommend the Ricotta Dumplings, Tator Tots like you’ve never had before, and the Pub Burger was wonderful. Also recommend Jalapeño cornbread. Drinks were amazing and original.

    The service was excellent! The oysters and entrees were top notch (fish special and ricotta dumplings). Skip the dessert, apple pie that was cold and tasteless, ice cream was very good. The lighting in a little odd, poor color rendering like they are going for 1980’s office lighting with the greenish glow. Tables and chairs are comfortable and nice.

    We dined at The Pearl for brunch in a Sunday morning, although the restaurant was very busy, we were seated immediately because we made a reservation. The service was excellent. The ambiance was lovely, lots of attention to detail. The food and drinks were wonderful. We will definitely come back when visiting our son at OSU.

    Great service even though it was extremely busy. Harbor salad was a must try for a seafood lover. Cute presentation of deviled egg app. Our group of ten had no complaints about anything. This on my list for my next Columbus along with Cap City Diner and Martini -- all run by Cameron.

    Reservations and table were prompt. Started our evening during happy hour. Great values during that time. Food is good, but I find the menu to be lacking some. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Definitely get the fried pickles. The cure was a good cocktail. Two of us had the steak and it was very good. Both were slightly over cooked.

    Go to Pearl because it's Burger Night, because it's your birthday, because it's happy hour, or just because it's Tuesday. You will not be disappointed. The ambiance is top notch and the service is exceptional. Highly recommend!

    Have visited three times (but live over an hour away so...this point should be indicative of how great this place is). Food is REALLY good (quality, unique-twists on familiar dishes) and it EARNS ITS PRICE POINT. You won't leave thinking 'Ugh, what a wasted $100 on lunch' which so often happens elsewhere.

    I dined here for brunch after a night out in the short north. The service was average and the food was meh. I ordered the chicken and waffles because I felt that was the safe option. It was not very good. My waffle was crunchy and the chicken strips tasted like they were season with cumin. Which I did not like at all. I ate half a chicken strip and a small piece of my waffle and left the rest. I also ordered the breakfast potatoes and scrambled eggs these were not bad but nothing memorable. For the amount of money I spent to waste the food and leave it at the table I was very displeased with my experience. Also the seating is VERY crowded. You are literally right on top of one other people and can hear your neighbors whole conversation loud and clear.
