Nice night. Food was excellent and well prepared. Different and delicious.
We celebrated my best friends 22nd birthday and had one of the best dining experiences ever. Everyone was kind and helpful.
Food was great! A great place to spend Mother’s Day!
Another great meal
We have dined at the Black Pearl several times and it never lets us down. The martinis are creative and delicious...Grapefruitini, Nutty Alexander, Cajun Corpse Reviver. The food is amazing, with a good variety and plenty of flavor. Highly recommend!!
Always good food and good service. Easy downtown AA eatery.
First time at the Black Pearl after walking by about 100 times and saying "we need to try that place sometime". Glad we finally did. Food/service/ambience are great. Sat at the window area (which was open because it was finally nice enough outside). Great place to people watch.
Can't wait to go back and sit outside this summer, because we will definitely be back!
Cocktails and food were outstanding. Popular place on a Friday night so reservations recommended.
We love black pearl. It’s our sexiest go-to date spot.
The Fish Tacos are Yummy! Everything we had was very, very tasty! The service was great and the management was very accommodating. I would definitely recommend this dining experience. A little pricey but worth the experience.
Really enjoyed our meals (Carmel apple salmon, half chicken and s’mores & ice cream). The service was great.
Really good food and service. Friday nights are loud and lively! Not a good place if you want to have a quiet conversation or talk business. The back room is a bit more quiet. Request the back room if easy conversation is your goal.
Amazing service, drinks & food! Fun pre-grad vibe!
Consistently good food
Great burgers and fish tacos
Love the Ann Arbor Cosmo drink!
Table was ready when we arrived. Food was delicious, the service was great and the portions were good.
Overall great meal. Ambiance was a little loud but there was a sporting event on TV. Matthias our server was great and made some excellent suggestions.
It was amazing! The food was great, serve prompt, and staff were friendly
Fish tacos are great, give them a try. Drinks were average
We dined at 7:00 and the place was quite full, energetic but not too loud. Our food, especially the East Coast oysters and the swordfish, was delicious. The fish tacos, raved about in a few other reviews, were in our opinion good enough to try again some day but not good enough to rave about. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive to our needs without being intrusive. Will be back again.
The fish tacos and coconut shrimp were very good
Best swordfish my husband ever had, very fresh! Fish tacos, the house specialty, were excellent.
The service was excellent. They brought my husband the wrong meal but they were all over it. It was our first visit and we really enjoyed it. The food is fabulous. Five stars all around.
Placed a reservation 4 days in advance, still waited over 45 minutes for a table that night. Good food with moderately sized proportions, but poor service
Very good experance waiter was excellant!Love the fish tacos!! fish was excellant
Great Fish Tacos. I will definitely go back to this restaurant.
As always the Fish taco's are the go-to menu item. My group ordered the pork chops which were just OK, the Enchilada which was again, just OK and 2 Fish taco's which were excellent. The calamari appetizer was small and the presentation was not very appealing although it tasted fine with a very light breading.
Black Pearl is a noisy restaurant so if you are looking for quiet conversation this is not the place. The bar is an excellent date option however.
Our main purpose for the evening was to have oysters. Some were ok size but others were soooo small, we could only see the mantle of oysters. If all oysters are the same price, quality should be the same.
Also there were six of us and they put gratuity of 20 percent without informing beforehand.
We had pork too sweet and beef odd taste what they call creative.
We all felt ripped off.
We don't go there again.
The entire experience was great. I really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere was superb.
I get that it is in the heart of Ann Arbor and when there is a Michigan Big Ten championship game on but when there are only less than 20 people in the room including staff, I would assume service would have been better. Took about 15 minutes after we sat down for the waitress to realize we were sitting at her section while we were watching her watch the game. The food was not worth the price. The pasta gone bayou's chicken tasted like it had spent a long time in the freezer. The cioppino's first 3 bites bits of sand, and for a seafood restaurant I would have expected the clams/muscles to have been thoroughly cleaned. When I mentioned it to the waitress all she did was shrugged and said it happens. For the price of the food I expected more especially in downtown Ann Arbor.
We’re regulars or should I say were regulars until this time.
After couple of drinks our server made a statement if it’s too much for us? Really? We laughed and of course he said it jokingly, but who tells customers something like that?
It’ll be awhile before we’ll consider to go back. Cheers.
The food and service are good, but the restaurant is VERY noisy.
Took my boyfriend for his 33rd birthday as low-key date!
Black Pearl continues to impress. The microgreen salad is so tasty. Cocktails excellent. Andrew provided welcoming, refined service. Also, the importance of the manager stopping at each table to say hello and ensure all is going well can not be underestimated. A personal touch. Thank you, Michael!
Meet some friends
One of my best meals in Ann Arbor. Very nice menu options and excellent service!!
Best service, great drinks!! Quite date location.
Very good food, very good service. Seafood themed. Overall well worth it.
Excellent food and service. We'll definitely be returning!
Everything was good, had the tuna tar tar and the crab for appetizers. The fish tacos and the pork chop was great. That whipped sweet potato that came with the pork was amazing. The martinis are good, we recommend the chocolate and the orange martinis. It is dim lit with table lamps so good atmosphere for a date. Staff was friendly and informative of items on the menu. Overall good experience.
