Fun place to eat. It wa karaoke night which made for some awesome people watching.
This was our second time eating there. My party of 4 had a ball. It was a little pricey regarding the items we eat and drank. Would like to go more often; but just on occasions. Really like it and feel well serviced.
Six of us had dinner here on a Saturday night. We all had an enjoyable experience. The food was quite good. The waiter was very knowledgeable. Between us, we ordered sushi, shrimp dumplings, edame and chicken cashew. All the items were good.
We are a group of high school friends who have been friends for over 35 years. We have been getting together each year for the past five years in Rehoboth and we always have our Saturday night dinner at the Cultured Pearl. The food is wonderful: a party in your mouth!
My boyfriend and I had a lovely dinner of some of the most delectable sushi we have ever eaten. We enjoyed our main course so much that we even indulged with dessert ❤️
Everything about our Cultured Pearl experience was top notch. From the ease of Open Table reservation to a very hospitable hostess greeting, quick seating, friendly and outstanding service, and incredibly prepared and presented appetizers and entrees, the Cultured Pearl is an outstanding choice for anyone from an intimate dinner for two to a party of 12 or more. Just perfect!!
The menu is terrific and our meal was absolutely the best meal we have had in town in awhile. The service was efficient and so attentive.
Can’t wait to go back!!
Loved the food and the mochi!!!
Not easy to find decent Asian food in Rehoboth, but our meals were excellent. We went to see the musical group and have dinner and was pleasantly surprised. Drinks were great also.
Good food and atmosphere, and our waitress Natalia was wonderful and very helpful ! Thank you!
Atmosphere was great food was great, service was not so great. I took my girlfriend here for Valentine's Day we had a great time and enjoyed our food very much. Our waiter however hardly came to our table, our water and soda sat empty on the table for 20 minutes before he came back to refill, and then he only refilled our water didn't offer to refill our other drinks. We also sat around with our food being finished for 10-15 min before I could grab his attention to get our check and our to go containers. Other tables around us had constant service being visited about 3-4 times for our one time. It was not very busy as we were there later in the night and from what I could see our waiter only had our table and maybe 1 or 2 others. I could see him walking around behind the bar and around the back talking to other staffers all while ignoring our table.
Always excellent food and service. The jazz vocalist was terrific.
Our evening was very nice. Our food was very good and we enjoyed the singer entertainment. We have been here a couple of times and highly recommend.
Great food. Great sushi. Great band. Great place for a family meal.
Good experience, except chair beside the exit to stairs, very cold draft, and staff had to use door. Really, Can't you find a better place for the table? I mean an upscale restaurant shouldn't have that type of seating.
Our food was fair; of the three of us, one disliked her dinner enough to give it to another to eat. The biggest problem was that the waiter allowed us to order so much food that we had to take home one entire meal and part of another; a good waiter would have told us that the portions were large (even those billed as appetizers), and helped us to order a reasonable amount. It seemed that he was interested in a larger check and a larger tip.
Everyone that worked there were very courteous on the way in and on the way out. Our server was great! He explained the menu to us and gave us some recommendations. The food was delicious !
Awesome experience. I personally have never had a bad time here.
Was a great meal and service is always spot on. Never want for anything to include drinks. No lurking it just happens. Thank you as always.
Be careful if you make your reservation for this place through open table. If you don't sit in a specific dining room they will say you cancelled your reservation.
Pearl is a great place. I made a reservation with OpenTable and when I got there they were very nice and they said yes we see your reservation. I said please make sure you tell OpenTable I was here.
Escorted by the hostess,my husband and I walked up the two flights of steps to where the dining room was and walked through the bar and decided we would stay at the table one of the dining tables in the bar area which we have been to before. Loved our server bartender and dinner.
What they didn't tell me is that when I got to the car 15 minutes later after dinner they said my reservation was canceled by me and evidently our $125 dinner was my imagination.
I called them when we got back and told them that yes I was there with my husband I got pushback I asked for the manager she was nice. She said make another reservation and she will make sure that it gets onto OpenTable and they'll take care of it and they did. But you should know if you make a reservation there be careful!
Outstanding food and service. The food was wonderful. Accommodated a vegetarian in our party. The service was very good as our waiter attended to all of our needs.
Our sushi was great as usual and our waiter was on point.
The the spicy tuna salad and the dragon roll were exceptional. Our waiter, Patrick was very attentive to our dining needs .
I was very disappointed. Requested a quiet table and was seated in front of the area where a very bad band began playing after we had ordered. Food was only mediocre, not nearly as good as our first visit. We are not likely to return. There are much better values without the high volume of a bad band.
I did receive a call after we left and an apology for not looking at my reservation request for a quiet table. I accept the apology, but they should have payed attention to the reservation to begin with.
The Cultured Pearl continues to be an outstanding restaurant! You will always have the freshest food. We have been eating here for many years and they never disappoint!
We had a lovely time at The Cultured Pearl on a Friday night. The first table they offered us was in an awkward corner away from the main dining area and next to the kitchen. They willingly accommodated our request for a change. We ended at a great table where we could enjoy the music by 'Shades of Blue'. Best sushi in town. Highly recommend the outside deck in warm weather.
Their edamame is the best I have ever tasted - so many different options of flavors - fabulous sushi and even willing to make things to order that aren't specifically on the menu. One of our favorite Rehoboth Beach spots. We love it here!
Service and food were excellent! Waiter was awesome . Entertainment was Bryan Clark..
The Cultured Pearl in Rehoboth Beach never disappoints. We took our daughter for her birthday dinner, along with some friends. Food was great, live music was wonderful, even some parents dancing, much to the embarrassment of the teenagers in our group. Love the Cultured Pearl!
I've been to The Cultured Pearl various times in the past two years but this visit was a disappointment. The menu was revised and the dishes we selected we felt were not up to previous offers. We had a cashew chicken entree that was served in a bowl that was more like a soup. Once we ate the ingredients, e.g., the chicken, cashews and other ingredients we were left with half full bowls of soppy liquid. The dish tasted ok but it's like eating a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs only to have half the bowl filled with very watery tomato sauce at the end. Would anyone want that? Service was also not up to all the prior visits---very slow to come to the table, didn't check in during the meal, seemed detached. Always recommended before, but can't today based on this visit---maybe it's an anomaly. We did enjoy the Friday night live entertainment which is half the reason we went here. That was good, but loud, and we couldn't have easy conversation with our other friends who were with us.
Food was incredible...great service.
Always a good choice for sushi. Jazz Fest makes this a special place with great food and music.
The menu is confusing. Waaaayyy over priced everything. Music was so loud couldn’t have a conversation at our table. Pork spring rolls were fried in dirty tasting oil. Extremely over priced for the level of quality
First time visiting. Decided to attend happy hour (4-6) off season. Nice atmosphere and bar was packed a little after 5. Happy hour at sushi bar too which had plenty of seats. Tried the firecracker and crispy calamari rolls which were both good. Discounted beer, selected wine by glass and specialty cicktails. Tried the Kappa Tini which includes pearl cucumber vodka, Thatcher's Organic Cucumber Liquor, and lime. For those who like cucumber, it was a refeshing cocktail. Service at the bar was very good!
We have been eating at the Cultured Pearl since it first opened in Rehoboth Beach, and all of our meals have been great! We have a vegetarian in our family, and the menu works for all of us. Our current favorite maki are the Mangocado and Pinatsu rolls - delicious! The sushi is always fresh and beautifully presented. Friendly and helpful staff, too.
Been many times and always a deliscious meal, lovely setting and great service.
Very expensive for the quantity of food that you receive. Sushi amazing.
The service was slow in taking the order ad slower in having the food brought to the table.
This place has really gone downhill in my opinion. The food may be fine, as I only eat the Tempura there and it wasn't bad.
Excellent Happy Hour, And Sushi ... Specials Include Firecracker Roll And Their Trademark
Pearl Martini ( Wasabi Stuffed Olives With Ginger On A Toothpick ) A Must !
