This would be a lovely date spot even though I came with my family. Beautiful interior. We sat on the upper floor which was nice. We had the charcuterie plate mixed with the cheese board which was good but filling. The duckling entree was delicious...More

Coming from a state that taxes us to the hilt and going on date night is quite expensive, it was nice to dine at a bit more fancy restaurant but it's still laid back and honest. I did not like the dish I chose (way...More

Went as a special dinner for my birthday with my mom. Definitely on the spendy side, but so good! I had the mushroom bisque and the flat iron steak and loved it. Would go again for a special occasion. It’s busy, so I highly recommend...More

I went there with my husband and our kids, we had the traditional "escargots!!!!!" which were very tasty, the Scallops as well were delicious... Well, a very good place if you really want a typical French restaurant!!!!!!!

I'd answer like the two before me, I believe so, they have just what you need and if they didn't on the menu, I'm sure if asked properly, they would accommodate anyone and actually so, just the right way, cooked apart from... More

Description
Chef-owned and operated, Pearl Cafe is an aptly named jewel of a restaurant serving regional cuisine with a country French accent. The massive beams and peach toned bricks of the historic warehouse provide a warm and inviting atmosphere. Specialties include bison with huckleberry-zinfandel sauce, duckling with dried cherries and pomegranate sauce and beef tenderloin with port and Roquefort. Fresh fish dishes change daily and local products are used whenever possible. The menu is rounded out with a variety of appetizers, soups and salads, house made bread and a list of sinfully delicious desserts. The restaurant serves wine and beer, with a list of 15 wines by the glass, local draft beer, a broad selection of half bottles and over 100 full bottles.
