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!

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) .

overcooked fish!

I've been to the Pearl Room several times, and last night was a disappointment. In terms of service, the busboy was great at refilling our water glasses, but our waiter seemed to forget about our wine. Our appetizers were delicious (mussels with chorizo & garlic; stuffed artichoke special), but our entrees arrived overcooked (my fish was so burnt I thought it was a "blackened" special). It wasn't crowded, so the delay in the arrival of our food, along with the dryness of the entrees, was inexplicable. And all of this doesn't come cheap... If I had written this review after my second to last dinner there, it would be much more glowing (there's a reason we kept going back). But after this, it'll be a while before/if I go back... too bad, because they have a really good pumpkin gelato!

I took my wife and four friends for my wifes 50th birthday. Chef Anthony runs a top notch restaurant. The appetizers from shrimp on a stick to the tuna with wasabi, were incredible, and elegant. The food presentation matches the quality of the taste. The main courses of rack of lamb, and gentle fish dishes were the best I have ever had. His staff and professional waiters, can not do enough, They are well trained , knowledgable about the dishes, and wine, something that a lot of restaurants seem to lack ,and nobody tries harder than Chef Anthony himself, as he works the tables and greets his guests like royalty. If you really want to spoil someone, take them to the Pearl room. No reason to travel to manhattan, with this pearl in bayridge!
