I had lunch here with friends to celebrate a birthday and catch up over some great food. Several of us got the steak special which was a tender/perfectly cooked sirloin with crispy potatoes, green beans, onions and mushrooms. It was only $12. There were several...More

I can't say we were surprised, since Pearl has so many positive reviews, but I would like to say how much we enjoyed our evening. EXCELLENT service from our waitress, plus the chef/owner came out several times to be sure all was OK. When my...More

Dined with a vendor (3 reps) and a colleague last evening. The five of us started with drinks in the bar. Nice space, extensive wine list with a little of everything by the glass or bottle. Glad to see a decent glass of wine available...More

Tripadvisor never lets me down. Once again, I find a top notch restaurant when I am traveling. I hail from Charleston S.C., home of fabulous restaurants and Pearl belongs right there with them. We met Chef Korkmaz and If I lived in one of those...More

We are repeat customers of this excellent restaurant, but wanted to take another couple who had not yet experienced true FINE DINING! We were so fortunate that the restaurant was not busy and the chef suggested that he do a "tasting menu" just for us....More

Just back from one of the most memorable dinners of my life. My friend and I met at Pearl (she's in Norfolk, I'm in Williamsburg and it's kind of midway). I'd been once before, she hadn't. So I knew the restaurant was beautiful and the...More

Reservations aren't really needed, though I usually make them using OpenTable so that I get my points. I am there during the week on business and have never seen where it's crowded--usually a table or two. If you're... More
