Great food!

I've tried a lot of the menu items and everything is always fantastic. The dumplings and the cream cheese sticks are especially tasty. The drinks taste great - Tokyo Rose is a blueberry cocktail to die for - the are a little pricey $10-12 for a short glass...but the food is VERY reasonably priced for what you get. The wait staff has always been great with us. I recommend you try it if you like fresh, asian cuisin... view more

Annoying hostess

I used to love this place but unfortunately it's really gone downhill. A few days ago I picked up some take out in my casual, knock about, comfy clothes. As I signed my check, the giggly little hostess kept looking at her coworker and nudging her arm like a couple of reject extras from the movie Mean Girls. I didn't realize I had to put on my skinny jeans and Louboutin heels to impress a bunch of wannabes. On t... view more

Wonderful Birthday Experience!

I had my birthday party here about two weeks ago...it was WONDERFUL! I found myself desperately looking for a birthday spot that wouldn't cost me an arm and a leg. I really wanted it at the Edison, but shot that idea down when the event planner told me it would be $1000 just for them to rope off an AREA...not even an entire room...but just an area. And that $1000 didn't even include food or drinks. For that, he t... view more

Perfectly Mediocre

This is a chain restaurant. Nothing more. Nothing less. Don't be confused by the reviews here that suggests it is something that it is not. If you do, you will ultimately be disappointed. The food is decent, but it is clearly the work of short-order cooks, not a chef. Think a Chinese version of the Cheesecake Factory. Nothing too imaginative, fresh or healthy. Just very formulaic food that they can make in an... view more

Great Food and Atmosphere!

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. (disappointed with the female valet, park your own car, plenty of parking on melrose).

Great Cocktails

I was at Red Pearl last week waiting in the bar for a friend to arrive when I got a call saying she wasn't gonna make it. Upset and hungry, I decided to order a drink and an appetizer before leaving. I ended up getting a very unusual ginger mojito cocktail and some edamame. By far the best peas I've ever eaten and a cool vodka I've never seen before was used in my drink. I think the bartender said it was called Alche... view more

A rough Sunday night meal

Despite warnings from friends, we went to RPK last Sunday night for dinner. We really liked the dining room, and we were greeted warmly at the door. From there, it went downhill.\r 35 minutes to get our drinks, 45 minutes to get our food, then we sent back 2 of our four dishes because they were prepared incorrectly. The Won Ton soup was very good, and the Peking Duck was ok (at least we didn't have to drive to SGV).... view more

MADE US SICK - REALLY NASTY FOOD

We tried 8 dishes amoung 5 people and not one was good. The service was really bad and she kept forgetting our drinks and the one coffee arrived 27min after it was ordered. We needed the drinks just to get the GROSS for down. Please do not wast your night or money here.

gross

We'd eaten at Red Pearl Kitchen in San Diego and loved the food so we were excited when a friend was having her birthday drinks in a private room at the Los Angeles location. We went early to dine and couldn't believe it was the same recipes. We got a caramel chicken dish that was nothing short of gross... gristly in spots then so soft in other parts I wondered if it was fully cooked. We didn't eat more than 2 bites ... view more

Interesting Decor, So-So Dishes

I liked the decor, a bit like a chinese restaurant at a huge casino. Larger than life light fixtures, statues, and lots of red color throughout.\r \r It was early in the evening and therefore still nearly empty, so the wait staff was a little slow at first. I know, they are still prepping for the evening to come.\r \r In short, the food was only okay. they offer you a discount to come back Monday nights for 1/2 o... view more
