Having last eaten at the Black Pearl over two years ago, we were pleased to have friends suggest recently that we meet them there for dinner. Our previous experience was a summertime outdoor table, this time we were inside. Black Pearl 's interior is a comfortable setting, with a long bar on one side of the room, the other side... More

I have not tried everything on their menu, but the fish tacos, coffee rubbed filet, and pomme frites are absolutely outstanding (Pomme frites and martinis make for a great late night menu). Similarly, the martini menu is quite extensive and very good. Go there on a Tuesday night to hear Laith Al Saadi play live music. Great outdoor sitting during... More

The first time I ate at this restaurant I had the fish tacos and I have never and will never try anything else. The fish tacos are amazing!

We stopped in after dinner for late night drinks! The Grapefruitini was delicious, and the service good! We sat on the patio because it was a nice night and the street action was entertaining! A great place to people watch and enjoy beautiful summer evening!

Disappointing dinner, overall food quality not as good as a previous dinner. Salad lettuce was not fresh, many pieces were spoiled and not prepared well (huge pieces of lettuce hard to cut on small plate). Probably should have sent it back but just picked around the bad. One at the table had lobster bisque which our server said was "very... More

The drinks where great, but the fish tacos and other entrees where only so-so, bland, and unoriginal. They're going to have to step it up if they want to stick around.

Management very poor. Food not even ok. Drinks overpriced. I would not ever think of coming back for a second visit. Was treated very poorly.

Dinner was delicious, and the lychee martini was amazing. A bit on the pricey side, but I would definitely return, and hope to in the near future.

Why is the general manager walking around in a hooded sweatshirt? He is not only not dressed appropriatley for this establishment, but he is also abnoxious. He doesn't know how to approach tables the right way nor solve issues. Black Pearl, please do yourself a favor and find a new manager. The seared tuna entree was very good and I... More
