Pros: Nice, plush, romantic decor and ambience. Great service. Great food. Great drinks. Female valet leaves cookies in car for you.

Cons: I had absolutely no complaints

Red Pearl Kitchen has the potential to be a really good Asian fusion restaurant, but unfortunately the service sometimes spoils the evening. Food is not outstanding, but OK, but very slow servers and bartenders.

RPK is full of energy. The music is playing and has an upbeat feel. We had excellent service. The food was delicious. The vegitables were fresh and crunchy. The filet mignon dish was fabulous. We can't wait to go back.
