Stopped in for fish tacos with a friend. We sat at the bar and ate. Service was good, ditto the food and atmosphere. I don't know that I'm dying to get back there, but I certainly wouldn't turn down the offer.

Great place for a dress up in a crowded lounge with good drinks and decent food. Great atmosphere with 30 and 40 something's drinking martinis and dressed to impress. Cougar bar and fish taco hang out.

Sophisticated environment with a really helpful and genuinely attentive team. They accommodated our group in their private room where we enjoyed an excellent meal - all good appetizers, entrées and cocktails.

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.
