Description: Chef-owned and operated, Pearl Cafe is an aptly named jewel of a restaurant serving regional cuisine with a country French accent. The massive beams and peach toned bricks of the historic warehouse provide a warm and inviting atmosphere. Specialties include bison with huckleberry-zinfandel sauce, duckling with dried cherries and pomegranate sauce and beef tenderloin with port and Roquefort. Fresh fish dishes change daily and local products are used whenever possible. The menu is rounded out with a variety of appetizers, soups and salads, house made bread and a list of sinfully delicious desserts. The restaurant serves wine and beer, with a list of 15 wines by the glass, local draft beer, a broad selection of half bottles and over 100 full bottles.

Very nice menu with great service. Good wine selections, decent beer selections. Both my date and I had nothing but good to say about the food. Very close walk from the Holiday Inn. I'd go here again for dinner in a heartbeat!

Even though we did not have a reservation we ate outside on a delightful summer evening and enjoyed Trout with crab meat and a lovely salad.

Walking by, you would never imagine what a sublime experience awaits you inside. Amazing menu that makes choosing your meal difficult. Wonderful flavor combinations all executed perfectly. Fantastic service! Filet, mushroom crepes, farmers market salad and German chocolate cake. One of our favorite wines. Beautiful evening in Missoula.

My girlfriend and I decided to finish up her birthday weekend in Missoula with a nice dinner and the Pearl Cafe did a fine job. We were a little full from a late lunch, so we opted for appetizers and a bottle of wine. The wine list was fairly large, eclectic and very reasonably priced and the scallops to die for.

We both thought the service was slightly lacking. After ordering an appetizer immediately upon seating, the waitress never returned with to take our wine order. We had to stop eating our charcuterie and get her attention as she brushed by to get drinks.

2/5 service 4/5 food

Would definitely try again.

Really enjoyed dinner. The atmosphere, service and food was all very good. We sat upstairs. My husband started with the onion soup and I a salad. We both had the trout. We did splurge for a very good bottle of Walls Walla wine. Wonderful dinner
