Go. Figure out how to get a reservation and book it now. We thought we had a reservation when we showed up but the person booking couldn't find the confirmation number. The server ran to his car, got a fold out table, and made a table for us. Unparalleled customer service. The waitress was kind, quick and knowledgeable. We went on a night there was a tasting menu and it was incredible. Got a little bit of everything and it was the perfect amount of food. Yes yes and please go here immediately.

Well.  I so wanted to say great things.  We've eaten here before.  Loved it.  Last night. Sadly. No.   We understand COVID and the hard time restaurants are having.  We also know it's Key West time. Relax. And chill.  That said, they are doing a prix fixe menu with set dining times. 5/7/9.  We got there at 9.  With a show at 11.  The hostess, very nice, told us they were running late.  She did give us a free drink.  They sat us at 930.   The octopus appetizer ( an extra ) was fabulous. We were excited!! Then came our first course. We all got a sashimi black grouper carpaccio. Pretty too look at but bland and tasteless.  Even the hot chili oil didn't help.  We asked for some sea salt.  Just a few drops changed the dish. Then we all got a crabmeat egg roll.  Came out. Looked good. The dipping sauce was awful.  Honestly, I thought they made a mistake mixing it.  Without it the dish again was bland. And boring. With it, it was almost not edible. Just a dabble of the sauce helped. The entree I got was the Tuna. It  was very good but to me it was appetizer size.  Last time we ate there ( 2 years ago pre COVID ) we felt like the dishes were much larger. For desert we all got this marshmallow s'more thing.  It was cute. In a covered plate with smoke. But again, super small and idk. Just missed the mark. On the plus side, the server did a great job and we made our show with a minute to spare.  I guess the dinner cost us 540 bucks with tip for four. We also got the 45 dollar crab claws that while good were also bland.  Add a pinch of horseradish to the cocktail sauce!! And perhaps give 4 for 45 bucks not 2!! We are foodies.  We travel a lot. I just expected to have the same experience as our first time here. We've been enjoying their sister restaurant Thirsty Mermaids every day for happy hour.  Spot on!!! We will try you again next time we come to KW but don't listen to the food people who tell you small bland portions are the way to go.  I know you can do better.  You have before!

Made a 9:00 pm reservation here for my birthday dinner. They are only doing 3 seatings and offer a prix-fixe menu of a three course meal. We arrived on time but had to wait outside for about 10 minutes past our seating time. We started off with an add-on of kumamoto oysters which were priced at $4 a piece topped with a salsa that was good but over powered the very little oyster meat in the shells. We each got a glass of champagne to go with them. Next we inquired about a wine pairing to go with their chef's tasting menu. Our server said they did have one but wasn't sure if they did currently. She checked and nope. Odd but ok. We were left to pick our own pairings as they didn't even have suggested ones for their menu items despite the fact that they have an extensive wine selection. By the glass offerings were high priced like in cocktails category of approximately $14 a glass.  Since we opted for different courses, didn't make sense to get a bottle of anything. In summary, food was ok and I  wasn't a fan of the lobster roll bun (bun too sweet) and was mostly disappointed with my overall experience here. I almost felt ripped off. I've dined at many fine dining restaurants and some were among the best Michelin starred restaurants in the country and even some that aren't but are still worth the price tag. I know what to expect in terms of service, presentation and portion sizes. Little Pearl fell short. It was a special occasion for me and I didn't feel special. Our cheese course was given a tiny candle on the edge. That was it. Nothing was thrown in compliments of the chef, which has been typical on special occasions at restaurants we've been to of this purported caliber. Overall, I can't recommend. Wish I went somewhere else. For what ended up costing us $150 a person, I have experienced way better. Skip it.
