This is an authentic chef-driven bistro with outstanding flavors, wonderful servers, and a tranquil but somewhat hip ambiance. If I lived in this part of the country I would hit this place regularly - and if you do, ask for Whiskey Smash - the mixologist is superb!

We had a great experience at Pearl District. Chris was a terrific waiter, helping pick just the right wine and giving some excellent recommendations on entrees as well. The food was absolutely top notch, as was the atmosphere, for a relaxed, classy date night. And again, props to Chris!

Scallop entrèe was exceptional. Beet salad and Wonder Bar dessert were unimpressive.

The food was interesting, fresh, healthful, and well plated. I am not a fan of strip-mall dining, however, our table - on the patio - and its relationship to the shops and sidewalk - never made me conscious of being at a mall. Our server was excellent - personable and attentive. We even enjoyed the company of the family seated nearest us. They (our dining neighbors) even managed to upsell us the amazing Wonder Bar, and we rarely order dessert.

Overall, very good. I ordered the halibut special and the halibut was a little overcooked. They graciously accommodated my request for a change of sauce.

We had supper here on a busy Saturday evening. The staff greeted us immediately. We got a table oin the front area, which was a little quieter. Service was excellent with a menu I would like to try again! Corkage was reasonably priced. We split an entree which was an excellent idea. Everything was delicious and I can't wait to go back! Two big thumbs up, a great addition to the neighborhood!

PD is our go to restaurant for business dinners and special occasions. The food is usually great and the cocktails are creative. Our last visit I ordered the salmon special. It was an Asian fusion dish of salmon over udon noodles. The salmon was just ok but the noodles were served as one big clump of sticky noodles. Very unappetizing.

This restaurant was superb! Food was exceptionally good. Service outstanding. We had the salt and pepper shrimp. OMGood! I had the spicy vegetable rice. Yum! Yum! My friend had the Heirloom Tomato Stacked Salad. Wonderful! The Wonder Bar for dessert was delicious. My friend said the owners of Pearl District used to own Leyla's up there. She said it's the same wonderful menu as Leyla's only better with more fantastic dishes. Can't wait to go again!

Phenomenal food, not enough words to explain it. Get the Brussels sprouts, shishito peppers (when they’re on the menu), vegetable fried rice, street corn or beets.

Food preparation is a bit different these days, seems the regular Chef might be spending more time at their new location. The six-minute egg salad had an eight minute egg. The braised beef pasta had plenty of beef, but it was not nearly as tender and as usual - this time it was clumped together and dry, had to use a knife on braised beef. Ugh. Service is great as usual.

Pearl District's menu is creative and fun. Best options remain their seafood. Our table had one Branzino and one lovely swordfish (no, not like THAT kind of dryer out swordfish). It was buttery. Our third party had a delicious, tender filet. Service was attentive and helpful. Wine list is simple yet complete.

For our 23rd Wedding Anniversary, I made reservations for dinner at 8:00pm. Eric showed us to our favorite table. Our waiter came and took our drink order and it was served very quickly. We thought, with the help of the waiter to order some appetizers and then see where the evening was going and then order entrees. So, I ordered the Five spice crispy Duck Confit and the Hamachi Crudo. Both came at the same time. The Duck was fantastic! Great flavor and texture. The Crudo was good with one exception. The Tuna was cut thick which in most instances would be a benefit but in this case some of the pieces were tough and fibrous. So, after the appetizers we split the 6 hour braised beef and pasta. This was exceptional and we both had reached satiety and was perfect. We then were presented with a dessert for our Anniversary of a peanut and chocolate bar on the house! So, overall, we were very satisfied with the restaurant and great service. We have been to Pearl District since it’s opening. The consistency is very impressive and with the exception of my “pickiness” of the quality of the fish, it was perfect!

Excellent as usual. Vegetarian fare was every bit as delicious as the regular menu items, not an afterthought like you would find in some other places. Service was excellent while not being too overbearing. One of the best places for a nice dinner in the Conejo Valley area.

Service very close to perfect.

We are a busy family and I seldom get to have a quiet "adult" dinner out. I would definitely come back here whenever I have an opportunity. Food was excellent, service was perfect (not unctuous, just attentive).

The food was outstanding but what also stood out was the remarkable service. Both times we have been here (and we will return soon!) the delightful waiters listened so carefully to our concerns, made great suggestions, and showed an awareness of how ingredients work. This awareness is most unusual and welcome!

Love Pearl District! Had a wonderful meal.... pork chop and a beef and pasta dish. Salads and dessert were also very good. It's a small restaurant so I like coming early when it's quiet and relaxing. Service is always above standard!!
