We've driven by this establishment many times and we always say, "We should try it", love the color purple. We visited this establishment with our entire family for Easter "Brunch". What a great local find which is no more than 5 minutes from our house, parking is difficult but that's common for Ridgewood. We often rate restaurants based on first... More

My wife and I went here on a Sunday evening on a groupon. We ordered the lamb chops and the double cut pork chop. Both were excellent and perfectly cooked. We had the pear salad and beet salad as appetizers which were also good. Shared a lemon cello cake which was good. Attentive service also. Prices are typical for Ridgewood... More

It took us almost as much time to find a parking spot as it did for the meal 😩 But... it was worth it! Pearl is a store front restaurant and entering it gives of a feeling of comfort. We were met at the door and warmly greeted by the owner and since we were there for an early dinner... More

This is my favorite place to eat in Ridgewood. Consistently great fresh pastas, fish and home made desserts. Very cozy and romantic setting Great staff. Excellent Sun-Thurs special dinner menu is an amazing value. This place was packed on Valentine's Day, with extra tables added, and every seat taken. We had another great meal. Restaurant across the street was less... More

Three of us went to dinner at Pearl, an excellent Italian restaurant that is a BYO. For starters this may be the most attentive and congenial wait staff I have ever had. Everything we ordered was wonderful, from tagliatelle to salmon to shellfish. The hardest part was in deciding what to eat. And there was never anyone rushing us. Just... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal tonight at Pearl Restaurant in Ridgewood as part of Ridgewood Restaurant Week. For $25.17 you get a choice of appetizer, entree and dessert. The restaurant is a BYOB which is an added benefit. My daughter and I both started with the Caprese salad but you could have also had a pasta fagioli or mussels. For my... More

Great Italian food. Home made pastas and to die for! The service was good too. I love tiramisu but I am quiet picky about it and this place has come in a close second to my absolute favorite one - not a small task! loved all dishes!

Very nice atmosphere and good service. Food was good but not for the prices charged. I love fine dining but this restaurant misses the mark except for the price.

When we ate here nearly 5 years ago I said in my review that the quarters were tight. Now that the restaurant has expanded into the space next door there is plenty of room. In that review I also mentioned how chilly the room was, and that was also true tonight. Even my wife was chilly and she's hardly ever... More

Dined at Pearl for the first time last week. The owner and staff are truly friendly and welcoming. All of our food was delicious and fresh! The pasta (linguine) tasted homemade. Highly recommend the bacon-wrapped shrimp (it was a special). Will dine here again soon.
