    Lobster roll is mediocre, clam shoulder is too salty because the chef didn't compensate for the bacon. Fried oysters sauce lacks refinement. Deserts are uninspiring.

    Everything is excellent but the food. But great service is not enough for the price.

    The only place I have gone religiously for 15 years and always order the lobster rolls. 15. Years. Nuff said

    Try the lobster roll. Not too soggy like other places.

    Fabulous lobster rolls, chowder and raw bar!

    Luke's, Chelsea Market and Mermaid Inn cannot compete in the lobster roll game with Pearl. Served with the most amazing shoestring fries, this is the best lobster roll dish in NYC.

  • Myles T.

    Piled high fresh lobster on the best bun. Combined with mouth watering Shoestring fries are AWESOME. Go early to avoid a wait. Wonderful people.

  • Laren S.

    The lobster roll is a NY icon (reminiscent of Maine), but don't miss the fried oysters or the mussels!

    Mario Batali calls the cod sandwich "beautiful" and Jimmy Buffet loves it too. Be on the lookout for the "the most round, all-encompassing tartar sauce [Batali's] ever tasted." Read more

    Lobster roll exceptional. Fries really great.

    Unnecessarily expensive place. Only if you pay a lot for them to important figures from the customer's satisfaction.

    My favorite lobster roll in the city

    Kris Parks · November 23, 2014
  • Epicurious

    Chances are you'll have to wait on line outside to secure a spot at the squeaky-clean counter & eat silky clam chowder, briny fried oysters and mayonnaise-drenched lobster rolls. Read more

    The lobster rolls are to die for. Worth the wait.

  • Tasting Table

    The low-key restaurant is most famous for Maine-style lobster rolls, which are superb, but don't forget about the classic shrimp cocktails and oysters. Read more

    On a recent visit, the oyster roll was the best item, a mayo-smeared bun piled with 10 oysters so light they threatened to float up to the tin ceiling. Read more

  • Risa

    My ideal Pearl meal: large bucket of steamers, lobster roll w salad (bc shoestring fries are a pain to eat), and a butterscotch praline sundae.

    Risa · July 31, 2014
  • Monica

    Wow delicious! Try the mussels!

    Monica · June 5, 2014
  • Alp O.

    The lobster roll is actually mind-blowing. The fries are amazing as well. Be prepared to wait though! (Caveat: it's worth it.)

    Best oysters and lobster roll in town!

    Prince Edward Island mussels are actually incredible along with the owner who was wearing a sweet German soccer jersey

    West Village institution. The place to go for a splurge on simple but well-prepared seafood.

  • Halstead Property

    We love the oysters, but the Lobster Roll is mind-blowing. The simple bun holds a grand portion of creamy lobster cooked to a perfect texture accompanied by salty, delicious shoestring fries.

  • Frank R.

    Best lobster roll outside of Maine!

    Frank Rimalovski · September 25, 2013
  • Jade B.

    Bouillabaisse for the win! Roasted scallops are a game changer. Can't go wrong w fried oysters and the lobster roll.

    Jade Bailey-Assam · September 1, 2013
  • S W.

    Generous amount of lobster ... Way too much mayo and fries greasy

    S W · August 23, 2013
  • Tate S.

    The best lobster roll you will ever taste. Rebecca's restaurant is a money making machine.

    Tate Shafer · August 21, 2013
  • Beth B.

    The lobster roll is chock full of meaty lobster but has a TON of mayonnaise. I'd go for the oysters and boiled lobster (served with a cute ramekin of corn pudding).

    Beth Bates · August 6, 2013
  • Yun Evelyn S.

    U should try Lobster roll! Also Dont skip the fresh oyster

    Incredible! The lobster roll was phenomenal and the steamers as well. If we had another night here we'd come back, no question!
