I was in this restaurant on Friday 2/12/16 with a group of business associates, the food was excellent the price was reasonable but the thing that impressed me most was that when one of our group went to take a phone call the staff noticed that he was missing and brought a cover to the table to keep his food...

The cave rooms are cool but we didn't get one unfortunately. Food was very good as was the service and the wine. €250 per couple.

I had reserved a table for 10 people well in advance for a Friday night and we had a table screened off from other diners so we did not disturb others. There was a restricted set seasonal menu which I need not have worried about as all my guests were more than happy with the choices. Thank you to all... More

Outstanding food, however very rushed! Excellent food and presentation. Crab entree and venison main for me, goat cheese and Cod special for my wife. Very very good in quality and presentation. However the service is strange. Rushed, uncoordinated- we were through entree and main in less than 60 minutes and thus not interested in desert or additional wine. Such a... More

Our group of 10 had a very nice room at the back for our dinner party. The food was great, I had crab to start and the Irish fillet steak as main which was succulent. Wine list good and service first class. Worth a trip.

I brought my son here, at his suggestion, for a special treat and we were not disappointed. The starters of Spicy lamb shoulder and the Goats cheese parfait were both excellent as were the Beef fillet and the Pigeon as main courses. A specific table asked for at time of reservation was given to us (merci) and this attention to... More

When I get the chance to go to an expensive restaurant I look for three things: (1) top-class ingredients (2) excellently prepared and presented (3) service which makes you feel you're a guest in someone's home. On the first two points Pearl brasserie scores well, however on the third there was something lacking. It began with the dreaded words "we... More

It was my first time here in Pearl and I was extremely impressed. The restaurant itself is lovely - and very spacious. If you want more privacy I would request a booth however where we were seated was perfect. The presentation of the food is amazing & the food itself is even better. I had the crab for starter and...

My wife and I were thoroughly impressed with our dinner there. The salad greens were ultra fresh and the dressings quite clever from a flavor profile perspective. The wine list was OK for Ireland which is disadvantaged by expensive, mediocre quality Spanish and French imports. The hostess saw that the din from a large table of incredibly loud Brits made...

A very warm and cozy restaurant, complete with intimate nooks, perfect, for private little gatherings or intimate dinners. The menu choices are wonderful. French, Irish, and continental. The lunch menu features a 3 course selection for €32 which include, appetizers, main course, and dessert. We thoroughly enjoyed our our lunch. I will definitely, return on my next visit to Dublin.
