I went here for mothers day It was very busy which is expected . We were seated after 20 minutes in a beautiful booth. Our food took a while to come out but it was well worth the wait. I dont understand how there are bad reviews about the pearl room because mothers day is the busiest day of the year. To me a busy place is a good place to be. The staff is always very friendly and accommodating. I ordered the beef wellington which melted in my mouth. my husband ordered the bacon chicken which was to die for I actually ended up eating some from his dish lol. We then ordered chocolate truffles for dessert which we always get because there truffles are amazing. The owner came at our table towards the end of our meal to make sure that we were completely satisfied. I give this restaurant 5 stars for being able to serve the most delicious food on the busiest day of the year!!

The food is pretty good BUT... We were a party of three but the restaurant was almost entirely very large parties. There were 6 tables of 5-15, and an equal number of small tables. Not a place to go for a date or intimate dinner with friends. It was noisy and staff was rushing around, bumping into us. We were seated then asked to move to make room for a large party. Service was slow, abrupt and inattentive as the staff was distracted by the large parties. When we ran out of white wine, a server brought us another bottle and put it in the ice bucket to "chill for s bit" because it was not quite cold. Side dishes were not ready before we finished dinner so we cancelled them. The manager or matre'd was invisible. We couldn't wait to get our check and get out of there.

I would not recommend the Pearl Room to anyone. I was there for a wedding. The wedding had a open bar but you where not able to get drinks at the bar. He didn't have enough waiters to take care of the guests so you had to order two drinks at a time. The food didn't come out until 10:30 pm and the food sucked!!!!. I guess business is not so good for the owner because he has his mother in the kitchen cooking and she obviously has no clue how to cook. The amount that the bride was charged for a plate at this restaurant they could of went to Russo's on the Bay and had a reception with class and good food!!.

I had my neice's baptism at The Pearl Room. The food was phenomenal and the portions plentiful. The service was great and everything was spotless. Perhaps the best part is how much the owner Anthony cares to make sure everyone is happy. Anthony was a class act. His attention to all his customers helps create a family style atmosphere. Everything was perfect. The Pearl Room is top notch. Nancy adds the warm personal touch as well with her grace.

The food is mediocre at best. The service is creepy. The dining room is loud and tacky. And if that weren't enough, the last time I went, they gave me food poisoning.

I've been to the Pearl Room for both dinner and events and I was definitely not disappointed. The drinks were great and the food portions were pretty large. Food quality and taste was excellent. Chef Anthony Rinaldi really makes an effort to make your evening or event special. He actually cares about what your eating and how the food is prepared. I would definitely recommend The Pearl Room for drinks, first date, birthday, family function, or any other Saturday night dinner with friends. Great find in Bay Ridge and great price!

Great Food, Friendly Service

I had my mother's birthday party at the Pearl Room (about 60 people), and I was not disappointed. The food and wine was excellent, and the staff was so friendly and professional, including chef/owner Anthony Rinaldi. Also, I was not able to meet the guaranteed minimum, but I was not charged for the number of people who did not attend, which was nice. I would definitely say it would be my first choice for having a party in the area. I have also had dinner there a few times on a Saturday night, and the food, service, and atmosphere have always been consistently great. I would absolutely recommend the Pearl Room for a good time on any occassion!

TERRIBLE !!

I would never recommend The Pearl Room to anyone because: 1. I made a reservation and when I got there they didn't have it. 2. I Valet parked my car and received a $115 ticket which I wasn't NEVER informed of until one month latter in the mail with a LATE FEE now the ticket is $125. Then I call The Pearl Room and at first they told me they would take care of it as long as I had proof that I was at the restaurant that night. However, once I told them I was able to provide proof that I was at the restaurant they refused and told me I would have to speak to the manger or owner (who every time I called were not there and never called me back). (Talk about being un professional) .
