The service was terrible. I was amazed to see the complete opposite person on the photo of groupon so grumpy and oblivious to customer service. The owner was on the phone the entire time and did not care about presentation of the food or how we were doing throughout. I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The place is lovely as is the owner with whom we had a nice conversation, however the food is overpriced, more than most places we've been to and the food was OK, nothing to justify the price...if the prices were more reasonable we would return...

From Our Editors

Owner and chef Ayoma Wilen took the reins at Pearl of the Ocean in 2010, and that year, the restaurant was named Best New Restaurant by both the Santa Cruz Weekly and Santa Cruz Good Times. And in 2013, she garnered the Best Chef America award. Focusing on fresh, organic ingredients, Ayoma oversees the vegetarian-focused menus that outline delectable arrangements of locally sourced ingredients, including some culled from the area’s farmers markets, and Sri Lankan spices. These arrangements are manifested in dishes as colorful and complex as a 20-sided Rubik’s Cube. Pearl of the Ocean’s staff also pours a variety of libations and non-alcoholic beverages, such as the spicy chai tea, and their signature drink, Kiss of the Island Princess, is composed of Montresor Prosecco, hibiscus flower, and love potion.
