Black Pearl Ann Arbor
Very accommodating for our friends 40th girls night out! BEST grapefruit martinis EVER!
I’d definitely go back...the fish tacos were great
Another wonderful experience.
Daughter in town from NY
Great food. Waiter put our business meeting in the back room on a weeknight.
Cool spot, good food, good service, and great location right downtown Ann Arbor
Good overall, couldn’t sit outside as it was very busy and there was an hour wait but had a table at the window which was the next best. We were seated promptly but not sure if it was the car show or just regular Friday night crowd, it was crowded, loud and the wait staff seemed a little off. Food was very good, our wine pour was meh. Service went downhill some at the end but it could have been due to the overly picky people we were seated with.
Food at the Pearl is creative but not over the top. Great flavors and presentation. Staff is super friendly.
Very good food. We tried the tasting menu and it was amazing!!
Fresh seafood with great outdoor seating. I enjoyed my meal.
Made a reservation, did not have to wait. Delicious food, casual but nice dining. Service great, ambiance comfortable. Would highly recommend.
Awesome outside seating ! Fun to people watch ! Drinks, service, food awesome!!!
Service was great food was great but they sat everyone right next to each other instead of spacing out the tables as they came in.
Staff dinner for 7. Table was ready on arrival, service attentive. Bit of a wait for food and beverage, but overall a nice dinner. Was louder than usual.
We always enjoy Black Pearl. This time we sat outside and of course it was noisy but we enjoyed it thoroughly. The only real glitch was our server who was s-l-o-w and a bit testy. I found myself trying to make nice with him to cheer him up. Maybe worked but service didn’t improve. Recommend fish tacos highly.
Food and service were great. It was a Saturday night and we did not experience any delay in service. Food was perfect. Thanks for the great anniversary dinner.
Good as always. Good food and even better drinks.
My first time at the Black Pearl was excellent. Great food and service!
Have always loved Black Pearl. Manager and servers are all so friendly and accommodating. I usually get the fish tacos but I decided to branch out and got the sea scallops. They were fabulous, perfectly seared. However I was underwhelmed by the risotto. Not much flavor. I grabbed a lime off my husbands plate and it helped a great deal. I’m also thinking it would be great on a bed of cheesy polenta but that’s just me. My husband had the swordfish. That was fantastic.
Food and service were great. Sat outside and enjoyed the evening.
Very lively establishment late on a Friday evening. The food was very good, service was good and our server, Katrina took good care of us and was very pleasant, friendly and smiled a lot, seemed to enjoy what she was doing. I would go back again.
Outdoor seating was perfect and food was delicious. Server was knowledgeable about the ingredients in each dish as well.
Love this place! Especially in the summer on the outdoor patio!
Restaurant was excellent
We had a great meal. We travel and dine out quite often. The Black Pearl exceeded my expectations and I would recommend them!
We sat outside, street noisy, but always interesting. Scallops were perfect. Hubby had the cat fish and enjoyed it very much. Also rest of the party had the fish tacos, which they loved. Sat and enjoyed the evening and appreciated the excellent service.
EVERYTHING at the Black Pearl was wonderful...REALLY! The drinks, food, waiter, ambience were outstanding. I was somewhat surprised; we ate there 3 years ago, outside, and were disappointed. We ate inside in a booth this time, and it was great. The St Gin, whiskey, oysters and salmon more than the best. The tacos were good, but would have preferred more fish and fewer veggies, but the taste was very good. The donut dessert surprised us, being so good with the great Roos Roast coffee. We'll go again, if only for oysters and drinks, but probably more.
The food was only OK. Very salty. Will not be going back.
Great food, wonderful service! Will be coming back soon.
The food was very good, but we had the worst service I think we’ve ever had. The waiter was completely MIA and the manager had to intervene.
Excellent experience! We were seated at a booth when someone broke glass on the stairs and some of it flew up and landed on my husband's head. Quickly, the manager whisked away our plates, got us whole new meals (we had been half done with ours), and comped the meals completely. We were very impressed. Accidents happen, it's how they are handled that makes the difference. The food is great and the service friendly and excellent! Highly recommend!
Drinks at Blackpea
Great experience! Mallory was an attentive, helpful and engaging server. The food was very good and the atmosphere is soft and comfortable. We'll be back :)
Our fish tacos were not as good as they usually are. Server was great but food only fair.
Friendly waiter, delicious food, fun outside dining space.
The food was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend this place just for the food!
We started with the Coconut Shrimp and the Sticky Rib Tips. The shrimp has a very sweet honey sauce that came with it, very good. The rib tips were delicious! Unbelievably tender and had great flavor.
I had the Roasted Sea Scallops. One of the best scallop dishes I’ve had in a longtime. The pea and zucchini cream risotto was fantastic!
My husband had the Blackened Swordfish. I personally don’t usually enjoy swordfish, but his fish was amazing and I mean that. The swordfish was so tender and cut like butter. It was blackened to perfection. The fish melted in your mouth! HIGHLY recommend this dish.
Unfortunately, we didn’t have room for dessert, but maybe next time. We will be back!
The tomato soup was the BEST! Our waiteress Katrina was fantastic. The food coming out of the kitchen seemed to be a bit slow for a Monday night, but it did not ruin our night. We weren't in a real hurry anyways.
We went for brunch. Food is ok seems pricey for the quality. This is not good for kids. No highchair and menu does not have any options for kids.
The martinis are the highlight of the Black Pearl...imaginative and delicious, a great value too.
The food is a little more hit and miss in regard to flavor. The micro greens salad is definitely a “must” and the scallops are very good, the crab avocado toast, as well. In my opinion, the fillet doesn’t have much flavor.
Having said all that, The Black Pearl is still one of our favorite places to go for special occasions.
Love this restaurant! Andrew was our service and he was terrific! Love the tune entree and fish tacos!
