Pearl Passionate Cuisine and Cocktails 470 1st St, Macon American • $$
470 1st St, Macon

“This place has a very unique menu, which I like. There are many different things to choose from with appetizers and entrées. We decided to try the yeast rolls with the different types of butters. They were heavenly. They were hot and soft. In fact I appreciate the temperature of all the food. It was all very hot and fresh. I also got the macaroni and cheese and the bass. Those items were okay. I feel they both couldn't been seasoned more. The sunflower seeds on the bass was interesting. My boyfriend got the crab cakes, grits, and rice. I can't recall the name of the rice right now, but it was a fried rice. It was delicious. Probably the best thing we ordered, besides the bread. The host and servers were really nice and attentive. I would go by to try different dishes.”

I was traveling through for work and my only regret was my wife wasn't with me to enjoy a wonderful, romantic meal. But this was a really nice solo dinner surprise after a long workday and long drive from south Georgia.”

Christian's Fine Cuisine 1693 Bass Rd, Macon French • $$$
1693 Bass Rd, Macon

“Christian’s is a beautiful setting for a special occasion. The decor is relaxed, cozy, and not cluttered or overdone. I really love how blank space is used to draw your attention to the chosen art. I love the color of the accent walls, something between slate and midnight blue. It creates intimacy. Although situated on a busy road, the light is filtered well with shimmery, gauzy curtains, and you feel more peaceful once you’re inside. The service is kind, but not stuffy, although I personally like to know my server’s name, so that would be one small change that I’d suggest to level up. She did offer recommendations and mention her favorites, which was appreciated! The charcuterie board was tasty, with apricots, figs, raw honey, gherkins, and various delicious cold cuts, but I was a little disappointed in the cheeses, because I eat Cheddar and Brie all the time. Maybe these were very special cheeses, but we didn’t know it, because our board wasn’t explained in depth. The board was generous though, and along with the delicious bread, and the tapenade it came with, was a meal in itself. We chose the surf and turf special and the seafood Thermidor for our entrees. The veggies that came as a side were beautifully presented and tender. I loved the little mushrooms! My husband’s steak was perfect. The seafood Thermidor was creamy and the portion was huge. I tried the pastry hidden below the sauce and the chunky seafood, and it was alright, but I’d already eaten the bread earlier, so I didn’t care for it. Dessert was divine, a chocolate mouse pie. We ate every bite. Decadent and memorable. Overall, I would definitely return to Christian’s but for very special occasions, which this was. It’s pricey, although a good chunk of the bill consisted of cocktails and wine.”

“I order a grilled snapper meal 20 min b4 closing. Let’s just say the cooks/waitress had a very long day because there was several things wrong with my order. The next day I called to speak with a supervisor about my order. Kelly is who I spoke with. She was very friendly and apologetic about the service I had received, she offered to replace my meal and assured me that I can come by at my convenience. 2 weeks later (3/19) I came for my meal replacement.Kelly is definitely great at her job! She went above and beyond. Snapper…grilled to Perfection 10/10!! I was given a variety of sauces to try with my fish. My whole meal was amazingly delicious. Besides the meal being awesome. My customer service experience was fantastic. Kelly, got to the phone promptly, brought the meal to me herself, gave tips on how to reheat a Togo order, offered to redo my meal again if I wasn’t satisfied. I’ll be returning, delicious food & amazing customer service like that is hard to come by.”

The cooks are always entertaining, which makes this a special place to take our girls or go for a date night. This visit we had a hibachi meal and a few rolls of sushi. It would be nice to have some background music playing for when everyone is eating. It would also be super nice to have some sort of complimentary desert to follow the meal. Overall, the restaurant and restrooms were clean, the atmosphere was nice and friendly, and the money spent on the food was worth it. Thanks for the experience!”

Our main course was absolutely delicious and everything I expect from a Chinese restaurant. I only have one gripe about the place, which is the wontons we were served as an appetizer. The wontons had little to no filling, and the flavor was lackluster. HOWEVER, I can confidently say that everything else I have had from their menu has been amazing. I highly recommend this place for the atmosphere and main dishes.”

My mom had the eggs Benedict which she said was good, but the sauce wasn't very flavorful. I had the veggie omelet which arrived cold and fairly flavorless.
