Pearl on the River
A gem of a restaurant on the Sacramento river, the Pearl never drifts away from delighting its visitors with awesome American delicacies and spectacular views. The menu of the restaurant is seasonal, which is curated by the expert chef Matthew Jones. The seafood and steak delicacies are prepared using fresh ingredients sourced from local suppliers. Be it the small plates like Grilled Oysters, Bruschetta with Fresh Fig and the famous Bowl of Clam Chowder or the big plates like New York Strip Steak Grilled and Pan Seared Scallops, you can vouch on it for quality as well as regional flavors. Complementing the food menu is the excellent wine and champagne list, which has varieties like Sauvignon Blanc, Blanc de Noirs and Chardonnay offered by the glass. Choose a table next to the window to enjoy the splendid views of the river.
After boating one day I popped into Pearl on the River to check out the decor and ambiance. I was impressed. My son came to visit and loves seafood so I thought I'd treat him to lunch there. I called to make reservations, asked if we could have a window table and was told by that they'd see what they could do. We arrived and while waiting looked over the lunch menu which is pathetic. I must note here that there were only four people dining and plenty of windo seats though we were stilll told they'd see what they could do. We enjoyed a great lunch at Chevy's with a great view and massive margaritas ;
When we arrived (15 min early) at the Pearl, we looked around for anything that looked like decorations for Valentines Day. There were none. Not a flower in the whole restaurant. Not a paper heart to be seen. Okay. The three young ladies at the front desk appeared not to know anything about Val's Day, specials, etc. They gave us basically no direction so we approached the bar to wait.. The bartender was busy cutting limes and paid us no mind. Finally he looked up, seemed annoyed, and took our order. When the drinks came he dumped mine over the bar and into my purse. Okay. I dried the purse and we went outside to wait for our big day and our new drink. 20 minutes later we had neither. We came back inside and sat ourselves. 10 more minutes go by with no service, drink, menu or anything. Long story short. The waitress, who never smiled, finally came and took our order. The food was actually good and we had an enjoyable time. But we will never return to the Pearl.
We just got back from a dinner at the Pearl. Want to let you know the food was very ordinary and the service was OK. But about the three girls at the front desk??? What is their job except visiting with each other. Also the music from Crawdad's was super annoying way too loud.
