Black Pearl Ann Arbor
Amazing food and service! Will definitely be back! I have a new favorite in Ann Arbor!
Love this place. Service is always excellent. Knowledgeable staff who care about the produce and cocktails. Very helpful. Excellent cocktail list, great food.
We only ordered from the starters and they were just ok, for the price we expected more. My husband order cocktails that were mixed poorly and tasted horrible. I ordered wine and it was fine just small pours.
The Black Pearl delivers really high quality food , beautifully prepared with a high degree of consistency and pretty close to perfect service.
One of the best spots in A2. Great and creative drinks. Excellent food and perhaps the best seafood in A2. Some favorites we routinely enjoy that are incredibly tasty:
Hip stir fry
FISH TACOS - If you like fish tacos, you must try these
And wash it all down with a promenade
Fish tacos are amazing! Also loved that martinis.
The staff accommodated us as it was very noisy, then sat outside and it started to rain, so then got us seats in a quitter area. Our server David was really good.
Visited Black Pearl during the annual Ann Arbor Art Fair! Knowing that restaurant seating would be at premium, checking OpenTable early is a must for this location. Great spot in heart of Ann Arbor Campus district. Dark/Moody interior makes a great date/evening stop. Selected outdoor seating available for people watching. Anticipated that the service would be slightly delayed due to the crowds and server coverage during this popular city event, my server Jonathan was terrific. Always checking in but not hovering and making great recommendations for specialty cocktails and his favorites on the menu! Enjoyed my trip down college-memory lane with a great meal at the Black Pearl!
Just great food, great service, would continue to go here every time I am in Ann Arbor.
Went to Black Pearl for my sons's 19th birthday. Had a reservation and scored a prime spot in the window that was great for people watching without having to eat outside (was a humid night!). Food was great, service was terrific!
We sat in the back room and it was very uncomfortable—too hot. Much cooler as we were exiting the restaurant.
We found this gem while walking around Ann Arbor..Great experience!
Server was very slow and unattentive. Extremely disappointing overall
Ordered the scallops ,3pc for 28 dollars biggest rip off I left starving
A lively Friday evening at the Pearl. Service was excellent, professional yet relaxed and cordial. Food was very good to excellent. Coconut shrimp and ribs appetizers outstanding. Tuna excellent. Specialty cocktails great. Always a good time at the well run Black Pearl.
We were a table of four, one person needed accessible accommodation. We were seated at a high top table which was what we requested. Our food guide (waitress), Megan, was excellent. She was very knowledgeable, and very accommodating to our wishes and needs. Wonderful service. The meals served were very high class and worth the anticipation. All in the party were extremely impressed. I would highly recommend this resturant.
Excellent food and service. Lots of large groups who were a bit loud. Thankfully they sat us in a booth away from groups.
Dinner was great, a little noisy, difficult to carry a conversation at times. Good was very good. Definitely worth a visit, wouldn't object to going back.
The food was good, but our waiter, Katrina, was so apathetic. Cold greetings, not very friendly, not super knowledgeable about food.
The Bread Situation:
She continually brought us bread, which we appreciated, until the bill came and she charged us a significant amount. The problem wasn't that she charged us. The problem was she never informed us. When we asked he to take it off she was rude and refused. Another waiter offered to take if off for us and, again, she refused. After, she didn't talk to us for the rest of the night. Not sure why she couldn't just take it off. [FYI: Bread is not on the menu]
A perfect night ruined over some bread.
Our Anniversary dinner and it was wonderful. Thank you so much for accommodating us for the patio seating. Felt like we had the best table in the house. Food was incredible as always.
We caught Restaurant Week at the Black Pearl, it was wonderful.
Fish tacos go $18 that are supposed to be the specialty were disappointing. I would much rather have the $10 fish tacos at World if Beers
thanks to Restaurant Week, we decided to eat at the Black Pearl. We were not disappointed and will return.
Awesome as always
Excellent food especially the shrimp guacamole! Martinis are delicious!
We came to celebrate a Birthday. Everything was great!! Service and food could not have been better. Thanks for the good time
Fish tacos, consistently good. Apple caramel Salmon also flavorful. Service was cheery and responsive, but not crowding. Slow Sunday evening made for a fairly quiet night, but when full, it can be loud.
Food is consistently great and we love the atmosphere. Had a great time celebrating a birthday and received wonderful service as well. Black Pearl is always a favorite!
We enjoyed our dinner, but did not find it to be exceptional. We will give it one more try and decide then if we'll return again.
Terrific food and the patio seating / atmosphere was great - perfect summer dining spot!
Excellent as always! Had the Red Snapper Special and it was outstanding and needs to be a staple on the menu. Fish tacos are always a great call as well. It can be a bit pricy with beverages, but the gotta love the downtown A2 scene.
The best pork chop I have had in recent memory. Other main course meals were also very good. Seafood in delicious presentations. Bar drinks very creative. Recommend for special small group occasions.
Great evening...prelude to a concert. Got the evening off to a great start. Host attentive to our interest, staff very professional, friendly without being intrusive, and open to request. Attentive to water and beverage needs and special request.
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!
