Very romantic dinner spot

We really loved this place! The restaurant is very cozy and has around 12 tables. Our server was very polite and knowledgeable. I ordered the pinot noir by the glass and my husband had the cab by the glass, which was both nice. We started with the lobster risotto: best risotto I've had and lots of... read more

Without a doubt the best meal you will find in Pinellas County. The specials are always thoughtful and fresh and the "classics," like the lobster risotto and filet are tremendous. Service is always prompt and professional. Bananas Foster is the best I've had.

Our waiter Zak ...took very good care of all our needs. We started with the pork belly appetizer which was amazing. Our entries were the stuffed Mediterranean chicken dish and the rack of lamb. The lamb was a bit tough but the reduction sauce was to die for. Served with mash potatoes and asparagus cooked perfectly. The chicken dish was... More

The best restaurant in Dunedin. This has been our "go to" place for a special night out for over 20 years. The food, service and atmosphere are fantastic. Their menu selections are great but I always try one of their specials.

Love The Pearl. Our special occasion place, we can always depend on the BP to offer exquisitely prepared dishes, elegant food, and superb service. Everything I've had has been fantastic, there is no wrong choice. Save room for the most delicious buttery apple tart you've ever had.

My friend and I had my Birthday Dinner at the Black Pearl Restaurant, Main St., Dunedin, Fl. This is a small intimate restaurant, nice table linen, soft light and very efficient wait staff. We had a 6 PM reservation, however they do accept walk in customers. The waiter reviewed the extensive entrees available,as well as the wine list. Appetizers, salads,... More

The food and service were excellent. Tables are close together and made for a noisy environment. The dishes were all excellent. Excellent chefs. Service was great. Our waiter, Ron, was very good and interacted well with all of us. Group of eight. The desserts were also outstanding, but we missed not having a soufflé option. For those of us who... More

I recently went to the Black Pearl with my husband and enjoyed a romantic amazing meal and excellent atmosphere. We were waited on by well trained staff and the manager/owner was there also making sure our experience was perfect. The previous time I had been there it was so crowded with tables that I did not want to return. This... More

Took my partner here as a surprise the first night of our vacation. Made reservations about a month before. From the moment we stepped inside...we were impressed and wow'd. This is a very small restaurant in Dunedin but one of the best I've experienced in the Tampa Bay Area. Our server Pablo was excellent!!! He explained different appetizers and entrees... More

My wife and I ate at the Black Pearl for our anniversary last night. It wasn't very busy probably because it was a weeknight. The restaurant had been recommended to us from someone we know who dines out frequently and usually is very accurate with his reviews. For appetizers we got the pork belly as well as the fried green... More
