Last night we waited 47 minutes outdoors in 20 degree weather for our 7:00 p.m. reservation. If The Pearl can't honor your reservation on time there is no place for you to wait except outdoors. The information we received was outrageously incorrect: "they are finishing...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...More

it is right next to a big public lot. Also a bank where you can park afterhours is nearby. Parking though in Ridgewood can be tight at peak times. Take the 1st spot you see.
