The food was unique and very good. Giant beer selection. Our waiter was very good and easily took care of our table of 7 without missing a beat. Definitely would recommend this place to others.

I was excited to have a dinner here on a recent trip to Columbus, but it definitely fell short of expectations. Service was fantastic, as was the vibe, but the food that came out of the kitchen just didn't excite me. I ordered the Pot...More

There is a parking garage behind The Pearl on W. Russell St. (one way road). 0-2 hours $5. We were there for about 3 hours, parking cost $8. There is valet, and street meters (good luck with that).

A Jewel Long in the Making. And well worth the wait. The Pearl is a well-polished culinary jewel that showcases made-from-scratch food, classically inspired cocktails and an exclusive selection of Ales, Lagers & Stouts. All within one urban and cozy tavern.
