Highly acclaimed modern French menu from Jun Tanaka in a stunningly designed space. To complement the excellent cooking, Pearl's central walnut-clad Wine Cave hosts one of London's best wine lists.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for somewhere for that special evening. It is on the pricey side, working out on average £75pp (there were 3 of us) for 3 courses and wine. The interior of the venue was sublime, the service was second to none, the food was an experience in itself and the wine selection was very impressive. The cheese course comes highly recommended. An excellent restaurant. I eagerly await an opportunity to return.

Pearl certainly isn't cheap, with lunch for two coming in at just under £200. However, it is worth every penny! Delicious food, great service and, unlike many other high-end restaurants, you can actually relax in there. Highly recommended.

Took clients here last night based on previous reviews and was not disappointed. Cool decor mixed with helpful, unpretentious staff is an unusual mix in London. Added to this, the excellent cocktails at the bar and sumptuous a la carte menu meant the table of 6 (none of whom had even heard of the restaurant before) left completely in awe and vowing to return. A must.

My boyfriend and I went to celebrate our anniversary and our senses were well rewarded at every level. We could not fault a thing - and we would had there been anything to say. We also opted for the tasting menu and every dish was exquisite and left us well and truly sated. 110% for the exceptional service from a very friendly and unpretentious team. Highly recommended. We'll be back!

My boyfriend and I ate here recently on a Friday night as we wanted to go somewhere special to celebrate his promotion. We certainly weren't disappointed. The service was impeccable (friendly, unpretentious and informative staff), the dining room stunningly beautiful yet relaxed, and the food was to die for. We opted for the taster menu - everything, from the pesto bread, beautifully presented starters and sumptuous mains to the mouthwatering chocolate fondant dessert, was delicious and original. It was impossible to single out a favourite dish. Excellent value - highly recommended.

Fantastic food and service. The staff are brilliant, very professional but friendly. Good wine selection of 50 wines by the glass. Tried the a la carte menu but will go back for the tasting menu next time. Recommended to anyone who is looking for a top dining experience in London. Michelin star can't be far away!

Beautiful dining room, great selection of wines and delicious food. Best restaurant in the area by some margin.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Pearl. The service, decor, bar, wine and food all combined to make it a night to remember and somewhere I'd recommend without hesitation.
