This is not a place for the 99% of us who do most of the living and dying here on earth.
The hostess was extremely rude to my 79 year old father who requested to be seated soon, the food was mediocre, and the staff was very focused on taking care of their friends.
Poor old Tommy must be turning in his grave... where have the good old fashioned Bar and Grills gone?
I ATTEMPTED to dined at Pear St. Bistro 12/01/07 with a group of 15 friends ranging in age from 75 to 25 years old and we were seated in these really tall chairs that were very uncomfortable and we almost needed a step latter to get on them. I waited at least 45 minutes for the waitress to tell me and one other person that she had completely forgotten our orders, orders that she had written down at the time we placed them. We waited another 20 mins. for her to bring us the WRONG meals that were not fully cooked. The waitress was made aware of her mistake at which time she proceeded to rub her nose and scratch her head directly over my plate. She apologized for the mistake and offered me a Cosmo which I excepted but it had NO alcohol in it. I could go on and on about how dissatisfied I was with Pear St. but I'll just say DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME, go to Macaroni Grill in El Cerrito or Burger King for that matter.
I have lived in Pinole my entire 40 years and have always heard mixed reviews on the Pear Street Bistro. Today I gave it a try for lunch and the food was standard, but not impressed with the small portions and high prices there. Service was very mediocre, with us spending a whole hour and a half and $65 (inc. tip) on 3 salads, tea and dessert. I'm no cheapscate, but you will get more bang for your buck, better tasting food and faster service at Romanos Macaroni Grille in El Cerrito.
had seen the review on Channel 9, thought we'd try it for a birthday dinner (drove from Castro Valley). Way too noisy, very dark, seems more a bar/drink place (though pricey) Poor menu selections. I was really looking forward to a nice dinner. Ended up ordering Ceasar salad and the margarita pizza for a lack of anything else. Same pizza at California Pizza Kitchen way much better. How can you ruin a ceasar salad - apparently with very poor dressing, little of the dressing and weird reddish spicy croutons. Lacked flavor. Did try the crab and artichoke hot dip with garlic bread. Lacked flavor but the garlic bread was good.
They didn't even ask if we enjoyed our meal as I would have loved to let them know,. Ended up having ice cream cones at cold stone for dessert as we were reluctant to try one of their desserts.

making for very slow going if you are in a car. Although, oddly enough, cars were the reason for ...
