The Pearson Room
The interior draws inspiration from a broad description of a 1950’s stylised Hitchcock approach to design; born from an era in which the traditional attitudes of the time were challenged and that have endured in the decades to come and right up to the present day. With heritage leather seating, a large zinc bar and stunning vistas over looking Canada Square, the atmosphere is one of easy-going indulgence, combining a stylish and cosy design. The Pearson Room owes its name to the eminent Canadian Nobel Prize winning Canadian Statesman, Lester B. Pearson. We offer an atmosphere that is vibrant and bustling, yet still personal, playful and welcoming.
Good food and good service and in a nice setting. There was a little noise but we could still hear each other (a long table of 6).
Perfect for a catch up with friends, clients or colleagues. Great service and good food.
Great food and service - a bit loud for a nice dinner with corporate drinks in every corner!
I have eaten at The Pearson Rooms before but only breakfast and lunch. This time it was dinner with two friends. The menu is good for both food and wine & drinks. The staff were really great and were very friendly. The restaurant was very busy with private business parties which meant it was extremely noisy. This actually made the whole experience very unpleasant. Check before you book. Otherwise this is a really great place.
Good food and a nice environment. However, a bit noisy for business lunch sessions.
Great vibe and cocktails! Love the buffalo wings!
Really like the Pearson room, great, fresh healthy dishes and good gf options
Wine list is a bit lacking and overpriced (for wines by the glass)
And it's remarkably noisy..had a sore throat as I needed to shout over the entire "romantic" dinner for 2!
Very limited vegan options.
We always got to Pearson room... The service is great, food is good and a nice view... If you are vegetarian, the options are minimal..
Very attentive service and the food was delicious.
It was open plan and can be noisy but overall a positive experience.
My friend and I got together with some old friends who were visiting. The food and service were good and the place is good for meeting/chatting.
The setting was very nice, modern, clean with good views of Canada Square. The service was good, the food was very nice, good portion size and delivered in good time. The price was acceptable. Overall, I had a very enjoyable time at The Pearson Room and would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to eat at Canary Wharf.
The Pearson Room is a nice place to grab a lunch/coffee - fairly relaxed atmosphere with some good food. also great for after work drinks.
Nice place - good GF options, although as a New Yorker, the Reuben wasn't up to scratch but I set the bar high!
The service was hit and miss and considering there were many free tables we was put in the middle with drinkers nearby so it was very noisy! However, we was not rushed and the restaurant was very spacious. I would return for brunch when it's a but quieter.
Great tae on the balcony with views out. Nicely spaced for conversation without feeling empty. Food quality was very good.
Poor staff service. Not enough staff. Requests not actions. Wouldn’t go back.
I thought I would try The Pearson Room after a couple of years as I thought it may have improved but sadly it hasnt . Surly staff (no smiles here!) and decidedly average and overpriced food.
It looks good but I wouldnt return for food, maybe for drinks.
Lovely place and generous portions for the price, we ordered too much but would not have wanted to miss out on anything. We had small plates and sides, particular recommendations for the chicken wings, squid and mac and cheese (huge pot for a cheap side) very friendly and helpful staff
It was really busy and loud on a Friday evening so not recommended for a romantic dinner. Food was fresh and flavoursome. Loved the crab starter and the poke main was OK. C lassie cocktails and not enough bubbles by the glass.
Lovely food, big portions.
Cocktails need improving. Margarita arrived glass half full even with ice, poor quality taste and very poor quantity. Atmosphere was fine, all else good though, but work on getting the drinks right
I have had a terrible experience lately and here it goes-
I am a vegetarian and ordered the (v) salad- roasted carrot with avocado , that came with slices of chicken. And when asked the server he replied- he thought I wanted one and that he thought the dish comes with chicken...so he served us the same. Really...??
To top that the bill comes with an additional charge of chicken for my salad.
I ended up paying both the charge for chicken and also the service charge (which definitely I shouldn't have paid) but only realized when I got back home.
Am wondering what will be done to act on this?

Delicious food, service was very slow.
Despite the message received from The Pearson Room, we did have lunch there with my colleagues.
Service was rather bad with a very loud, abrupt and rude Italian waitress. Sadly the food didn't compensate the attitude. I won't rush back and nor will my colleagues.
I haven't been to the Pearson Rooms for over a year but I was very disappointed in what seemed to be a real drop in quality of food. My husband eats here every morning before work and said nothing had changed on the breakfast menu, so perhaps the budget for that menu hasn't been cut! I ordered the pulled pork sandwich and it was quite frankly, revolting...nothing how you would imagine pulled pork to be...it landed on my table in what could be described as a hotdog bun, some soggy pork that was, despite being wet, dry...topped with a tasteless "slaw" which was slightly vinegary shredded cabbage. The sweet potato chips were the saving grace of my meal. Service was pretty good, but I won't be rushing back anytime soon.
Great seat at the front of the restaurant. Airy and light and away from other tables allowed private conversation. Delicious toast, avocado, chili flakes and poached egg. Will use again for a business breakfast.
Fantastic for business meetings; good quality healthy food, quiet during lunch, and not too crazy-noisy during the evenings.
As always the Pearson rooms always delivers. Great staff. Good straight forward food, good ambience and just a place you can always rely on.
The food was very good complimented by a good service. The place was a little noisy but still enjoyable. Overall it was a good dining experience.
Really enjoyable breakfast. Good food. Massive portions. Would go back.
This is a great place for an early morning meet, particularly with the gym nearby. The selection is simple, but just what you need. The room offers great views of Canada Square.
Got the sofa seats: yay!!
Too noisy. Otherwise good.
Martinis we're crisp, clean & wonderfully dry. Well done baldy beardy bartender!
Great place for a quick business lunch. A busy scene but staff were spot on with service.
Slow service. Ordered the braised beef, it was without flavour.
Efficient and friendly service which was great as I had my 3 children with me for a quick lunch. All the meals were great with the exception of the tomato pasta that my daughter ordered that was rather bland. Not cheap but easy to get to, quiet enough to chat and a good quick turnaround.
The booking process was smooth, service was good and the food was amazing!
I was thoroughly disappointed by the atmosphere. I thought I had booked at a restaurant not a nightclub. There was a drinks party on the side which may have maximised profits given the bar is so small but led me to the conclusion I will never go there to eat again. The noise led all of my friends and I to shout to each other in order to be heard. The assumption, despite booking for dinner and confirming this, that it was bar food we were after. We had to ask for menus!?! Overall thoroughly disappointed on the night which was supposed to be the highlight of my week. Great for partying and drinking to loud music otherwise steer clear...
