Are you looking for a place to enjoy fine dining after a long work week without having to drive into Oakland or San Francisco? Or maybe you’re looking for a place to grab a healthy and hearty meal during that short, yet coveted lunch break. Perhaps you want to enjoy a drink with a few friends and watch the latest sporting event on TV, or simply gather with coworkers or friends in a casual atmosphere. Do you enjoy going out for a leisurely brunch on the weekends? Or, are you planning a special occasion, such as a birthday party, a wedding or bridal shower, or a retirement celebration? Whatever the occasion or whatever you’re looking for, Pear Street Bistro can accommodate your needs. It is truly a restaurant for all reasons!

Contra Costa Marketplace Magazine featured Pear Street Bistro in February 2016, soon after its grand re-opening following a kitchen fire that had closed the restaurant for fifteen months. Francisco Flores, who assumed ownership of PSB from the original owner, Gary Wong, four years prior to the fire, has done a remarkable job of re-establishing his restaurant as the “go to” place in Pinole. In fact, this very desirable restaurant is frequented by customers from all over the bay area who come for delicious meals, excellent drinks, and the frequent musical entertainment and special events hosted by Francisco and his staff. PSB features a full, spacious bar and lounge with plenty of tables; televisions for sports viewing, and a large media wall. The elegant dining room boasts beautiful chandeliers and marble topped tables, and there is an extended dining area that can be closed off for private events and banquets. Pear Street Bistro’s versatile layout makes it a perfect venue for all occasions.
