Welcome to Pearl Bistro & Oyster Bar, a tradition on the beach in White Rock since 2004. While you might know us for our rich heritage of original coastal cuisine, we’d like our guests to know that Pearl Bistro & Oyster Bar is our vision of what great fresh food can be when served in a fun, friendly & refreshingly casual atmosphere. We are all about sharing truly great oysters, seafood and good times amongst friends & family.
Please join us for brunch, lunch, dinner and some appies with $4 beers on the deck, or saddle up to the Oyster Bar and get shucked.
Nice atmosphere , and from there down hill.
Very difficult menu to read in dim light. ONLINE MENU is different than actual menu.Server was bored , unfriendly and forgetful when it came to serving us.Food is way over priced and mediocre in taste. Portions very small so plan ahead for hitting up another eatery on the way home.
We would classify this place as a major disappointment and recommend a pass.
A first visit to the "re-branded" Pearl-on-the-Rock today for lunch. The place was empty, the server indifferent (although some cool tatoos), the food ordinary, and over-priced. It's sad to see the shell of what was once a first-class restaurant. Other than the decor, nothing remains of the outstanding Pearl-on-the-Rock. Don't let the re-branding fool you. Hopefully, a restuaranteur will fill the void that has been left by the now departed Pearl-on-the Rock.
Just wanted to write about my visit to pearl urban bistro last night.
Upon arrival the restaurant was packed which was great. We had made resovations so it made life a little easier and even better was that we had parked in their back parking lot which was convenient and complimentary (unheard of in Whiterock beach definitely a bonus).
When getting to the front and waiting for the table this is where the night began to turn. We asked to sit on the patio and the young woman (who later I found out was the manager) had quite the attitude with me and I think rolled her eyes at me.
We have dined a few times at pearl on the rock before the changes and fell in love with it so this was our first experience dining at the newly renovated restaurant.
Our dinner was mediocre having the special which was over seasoned and over done. But the appies we had were great. No one came and checked on us the whole evening as our server had a larger group. And when asking for a top up of water it seemed like I was asking our server the whole world.
But I must say dining here this visit was a little different. The manager was spending more time with which seemed to be her friends as i assume from the hugging and verbal language of swearing (as she was talking with them about going out drinking and partying) than worrying what was going on in the restaurant. In fact our table ordered our drink first and the table she was talking to not only had there drinks made for them immedietly but I head "these are on me" and then she proceeded to stand at their table for a solid 15 minutes and chat.
To top off the night when paying the bill the manager blaintenly spoke down to her employees and was utterly rude to one.
The restaurant looks amazing and the menu too. Its just missing the lack of service that it used to possess. I don't think will be coming back anytime soon
Had dinner there on Wednesday 05 Oct 2011. Weather outside was cold and dreary but inside the Pearl it was warm and invitefull. The Pearl wasn't our first choice, since we've never been there before, but due to circumstance we ended up there. We where the first ones in and got our choice of tables. Obviously we took a table at the window. As expected our hostess and our waiter Charles were efficiently attentive to our needs and requests for the entire time we were there. The decor of the place is very pleasing to the eye.
On the food and beveage front the Pearl brilliantly shines through. Extensive and varied wine selection. Cocktails, The Pink Nightmare, were superbly done.
Beautiful big Mussels, Seafood Pot Stickers and Prawn Bisque were our starters.
Pork Lion, Fraser Valley Lamb and Cod Fish and Chips were our mains. All were really good but I think the Pork was truly a standout in this trio. The tender meat served up on spot on polenta all brought together with a swirl of honey. Very very good.
Chocolate Pate, cheese cake and cheese plate were for dessert. If you like chocolate I really recommend the pate., wow.
Oh, really good coffee is served as well.
Overall a really good experience.
Chef Ramsay would be proud.
In all, for three, with cocktails and wine about $260.
Had a group of my colleagues at Pearl for a meeting and it was great. Had some fresh oysters, flamed prawns and there bread with lemon truffle oil for dipping. I had the steelhead special, anything with risotto I love! The presentation on the meal was great.
Had a great view, we were seated on the private banquet so we could see the ocean and sunset.
Will deifnately hold my meetings here again.
My family surprised me for brunch at Pearl and good call by them. Service was great, attentive but not overly. Had a thirty minute caesar, which was awesome. My steak and eggs were cooked great, my kids enjoyed the kids breakfast. The apple dessert was great when they lit it on fire.
I would definatley reccommend Pearl! I really want to come back and try a crab fritata.
