Black Pearl Ann Arbor
I am from out of town and had the task of finding a place for a business dinner with two colleagues and after looking at the menu and looking at some reviews chose the Black Pearl. We each enjoyed the martinis we had prior to dinner. Dinner was delicious! We each had something different and each dish was excellent. Everyone thought it was a great choice.
Good food good drinks. Fish tacos were great.
Cool ambiance. Nice waitstaff. Ann Arbor pricey to be expected- $75 for three bowls of soup, one entree, a beer, a tea, and a side salad with salmon...and delicious lava cake dessert.
We had a great time.
Food and service was fantastic! Highly recommend
David was an amazing server. We had never been here before. Food was delicious!!
Food is simply outstanding!
Great food and awesome service. They were also very accommodating when my map app made me late and then parking took a bit longer, too.
Ate there before seeing a show at the ARK. Perfect location. And the blackened swordfish was amazing.
Nice atmosphere. Cozy, not too noisy. Good for a date. Great food and service.
Excellent as always
Meghan the server was friendly and timely, and the food as always was delish. Black Pearl has a cool, relaxed ambiance about it, making it the perfect place to enjoy a terrific meal.
Great drinks and food! Love going to the Black Pearl
Everything was superb from the drinks to the service to the quality of the food. Our server Jonathan was excellent and spot on with his recommendations. 5STAR all the way
Tables are too close together for an intimate dinner best kept to a fun night out with friends or casual conversation. The bar is very good as are the servers and manager the food is eclectic and tasty.
Good! Great food, good service, good ambience
Very good food! Nice somewhat dark atmosphere. Please remove god awful cilantro!!!!
The absolute best fish tacos I have ever had! Ever!!
We’ve been to Black Pearl many times. The food is always exceptional. There is a wide variety of signature cocktails as well as a full bar. The only downside is that the menu does not seem to change al all, except the nightly specials.
Awesome food, service & cocktails!!
One of my favorite places in Ann Arbor. The BEST martinis. Love the fish tacos and beef tips. Always have nice servers. Love this place!
Great place to get yummy food before a concert st the Ark! Will go here again for sure!
I innovative and friendly
They are known for their "fish tacos" but they were very underwhelming. My husband ordered those and I had the pork chop. It was very tough, had to really dig in to cut it. The chop came with mashed sweet potatoes that were so sweet it felt as if I was eating a pureed pumpkin pie. I will go back for a cocktail because I liked the list of options but probably won't return for the food.
Attended Michigan game with daughter. Had a fantastic dinner. Burgers were awesome. Mixed drinks delicious!
We went here before a Michigan Football Game. We had a great time! Our waiter, Michael, was very attentive. Food was excellent and our drinks were good!
Family met for dinner. We have not seen each other for over 15 years. We made a reservation, and we spent $140. That was for three people. Apparently we overstayed our welcome. Mike, the manager, came over and asked us to leave. Although he was nice, he said he had too many reservations waiting and we needed to go. Considering we had spent quite a bit of money and we were not just having a drink, I was offended.it put a cloud on the evening to be sure. Also, I emailed him to express my concerns and he did not respond.
Service way slow
We went because it was the only place around that had oysters on the menu, since they are not in season. They were fantastic. Drinks were great and our server was very knowledgeable on all the drinks and food
Our server seemed overwhelmed, or maybe just in the weeds. He wasn't rude, but wasn't friendly either. This was the second time trying this place out for a birthday dinner. The food was good, but not overly impressed.
Excellent!! Thank you!!
Fish tacos and 10th anniversary tacos were excellent. The waiter was great.
Black Pearl is a find. Delicious, great service and outdoor dining weather permitting. The food and wine selection was great and creatively presented. The ingredients are deliciously fresh. The patio was wonderful as it was a warm Ann Arbor evening. The service was fantastic and the food was delicious. Would recommend trying Black Pearl. The bar even looked really fun. The inside is dark, but hip and cool.
They did a fantastic job for our birthday celebration.
Oddly cheap with bread. Food tasty. Atmosphere nice. Cocktails delicious but when I asked for another piece of bread to dip in my main dish the waiter said he was not allowed to give me another piece, even for an extra fee. He came back later and said he spoke to manager and he can give me another type of bread for extra money and I waited and waited for it as my meal grew cold and he never brought it. He then told me they used to charge extra for ketchup and condiments!!! We were floored.
The food was great overall, the service was excellent and the cocktails and wine list are always delicious here. The only reason we didn't stay for a second bottle of half of wine was the outdoor seats are super uncomfortable, which is a shame because the ambiance was great. Inside it's too dark for the summer time.
Food was disappointing but the ambiance was good. Great place for happy hour drinks and appetizers. Great high top seating in bar area and sidewalk dining options.
We love the Pearl. It is one of our go-tos. Saturday night, for some reason, the kitchen may have gotten a little swamped? Anyway, we tried 2 new dishes that were fantastic....and we didn't have a problem, but I was glad I'd already had an appetizer because some folks waited quite a while for their food. I hope it was not their first experience, because Michael and all do a great job. Love.
The Black Pearl is a very nice restaurant and the service was great. The food was delicious. The only reason I didn’t rate it higher was that the menu is somewhat limited. I was planning to return the very next night, until I realized that I would have to order the same items.
