    Initially I was put off by the patio reservation (only availability at the time), but it was a beautiful setting on a perfectly windy and mild June evening. In retrospect, the patio made the dinner so much more special for our large-ish party of 7. Everything from the oysters and old fashioned at the bar to the service and Chilean sea bass for dinner to the phenomenal carrot cake for dessert was absolutely top notch. We had a wonderful time and look forward to our next visit.

    What a fun experience!! SO glad we chose Ulele! The art and sculptures are stunning. We had great espresso martinis and then went to our table. We requested several menu changes and our waiter was so very accommodating! He was very attentive but didn’t hover. We both had Mahi-mahi and it was superb!! My fresh sautéed spinach was cooked absolutely perfectly!! We both highly recommend Ulele!

    Service was great and friendly. The food was on the saltier side for me, I had the guacamole and Brussels sprouts. The carne asada tacos were wonderful!

    We popped in for a quick lunch and ordered the marinated steak with humus and the turkey Brie sandwich, both of which were excellent. Holly was our server and we definitely will request one of her tables again. She even gave me a tip on how to re-heat the sweet potato waffle fries in my air fryer versus throwing them out. Overall a very pleasant lunch!

    We celebrated my mother’s birthday at The Pearl in Tampa on June 17th, and they did not disappoint. It’s super cute inside with great decor, from the front door to the restrooms! The receptionists were very nice and friendly. Greeted us with a smile! Due to moms, “it’s my birthday sunglasses”, they made sure to acknowledge her and why we were there, wishing her a happy birthday as we were seated. Benjamin was our server and he was great. Very attentive, even when it became busier during our visit, he never forgot about us. He was very knowledgeable when it came to the menu as well, making great suggestions and clarifying any question we may have had. Overall, the food was great, with the exception of the chicken wings. They were very bland and lacked any type of seasoning or flavor. EVERYTHING else we ordered however was in point!! They make a wonderful espresso martini! The fried pickles were tasty and not overcooked! Old Fashioned Deviled Eggs Weee the best I’ve had in a restaurant hands down. Typically these are best homemade but The Pearl’s recipe is oh so good as well! Mom had the Atlantic Salmon, Cooke perfectly as well. Sometimes salmon is overcooked but not here, juicy and flaky at the same time! Poppa had the Braised Short Rib, which I thought was tasty and flavorful however, he thought it was a little overcooked flavor wise. However, Short Rib texture was very tender and fell apart with the slightest touch of your fork. I had the Harbor Salad which was very large in size and full of flavor. The seafood was fresh and dressing was perfect, not too oily as you can often experience with a Vinaigrette. Lastly, since it was moms birthday, they allowed her pick a complimentary desert, any of their deserts. This was dope considering most places put parameters around the comp deserts and only allow you one or two options. Overall, I LOVED The Pearl and will definitely be going back! It would be a great place for a romantic date night with your person as well!
