Really good food - we must order the lobster tempura every time, because we can't face missing it.
Service very close to perfect.
What more can you ask for?

We went with a gathering of friends - many who were there for the first time - and we all LOVED IT! Sat at the Kitchen table - amazing service and the food as always - not only tasty but beautiful. One of our favorite places to dine.

We are a busy family and I seldom get to have a quiet "adult" dinner out. I would definitely come back here whenever I have an opportunity. Food was excellent, service was perfect (not unctuous, just attentive).

The food was outstanding but what also stood out was the remarkable service. Both times we have been here (and we will return soon!) the delightful waiters listened so carefully to our concerns, made great suggestions, and showed an awareness of how ingredients work. This awareness is most unusual and welcome!

Love Pearl District! Had a wonderful meal.... pork chop and a beef and pasta dish. Salads and dessert were also very good. It's a small restaurant so I like coming early when it's quiet and relaxing. Service is always above standard!!

I made reservation a week in advance, still didn’t get good seats they put us kind on a Hall way. I asked them if they have better seats they said no. The waiter was ok not very friendly or knowledgeable. The food was good. I am not sure if I will return, maybe different waiter and better seating will make it more enjoyable.

Pearl District is a local gem, always great food and service. We are never disappointed here and particularly love the daily specials. We only wish Chef would prepare his stellar steak tartare and liver pate appetizers more frequently as they are so D-Lish! All the appetizers are excellent and plentiful to share. Every entree is flavorful, prepared properly. We always have attentive servers, always. The folks in Encino area are going to love PD's newest location and appreciate the experience of this restauranteur. They know food and customer service which is definitely going to stand out in the area.

The food was pretty good. My fillet mignon was tasty and cooked properly, my husband’s skirt steak, although cooked properly (medium) was very chewy/tough. We were seated next to a table of four who were so loud (at times using f bombs) that we couldn’t even have a conversation. Not at all the restaurants fault. Our waiter was attentive and helpful.

Our second time here and it was just as good as our first visit! Everything was delicious! My husband I are vegan/vegetarian, so we stuck to those options. Fantastic brussel sprouts, a heavenly mushroom polenta (we had the cheese omitted) and it was still amazing! And our finale was the fried rice, which was out of this world! The place is not huge, so I do recommend reservations. A+++

Pearl District used to be a pearl. Maybe it has changed because they are opening a new restaurant in Sherman Oaks and they think they are a “bigger” fish now. I think not!

We were regulars but had a very bad dining experience. The food preparations just seemed not as tasty. The attention to detail seemed to be lost and caring service is definitely gone.. Their fried chicken used to be special...something I would never order anywhere. It was just fried chicken on a bed of puréed yams. The sauce was not good. The branzino was just overwhelmed with too much covering the plate. My friend’s salmon was very good though. Also,the Caesar salad was just mediocre .... that was for all of us. Our friends asked to “share “a Caesar salad. When our bill arrived, there was split charge , although they had their own entrees. Our server, when asked about this, was beyond rude and condescending. Unfortunately, instead of being gracious, he barked back that “this policy is stated on the menu!”
He returned with the check and barked back, “I will remove the charge THIS time!”

The test of a good restaurant is how an issue like this is handled. Unfortunately, Pearl District needs to train their regular servers as well as the newcomers who will open their new restaurant. Rudeness is unacceptable. We will not be regulars anymore!
