From 2012:
The Cultured Pearl Restaurant & Sushi Bar—the original sushi place at the beach—is
still the best because the emphasis has always been on authenticity.

The rooftop of The Cultured Pearl
Restaurant & Sushi Bar gives you a terrific view of lively Rehoboth Avenue, but the
labyrinth of koi-filled lagoons transport you to a different world.

From 2010:
There’s simply no beating the rooftop water gardens, the all-black walnut bars and other unique features at The Cultured Pearl. Indulge in one of the Pearl’s signature sushi rolls amid more than 15,000 gallons of placid water in the manmade lagoon. Tiptoe through exotic plants and over koi fish beneath boardwalk bridges on your way to raised gazebos. The avenue below is a world away…

From 2009:

Salmon rolls get top marks from the Leishear family, but you can’t go wrong with any of The Cultured Pearl’s creative sushi offerings. The signature Delaware roll combines crunchy cucumber with avocado, asparagus and strips of a dried gourd called kanpyo. Eating on the Zen-like rooftop deck makes it an extra special treat.
