Pros: the grouper was an excellent dish with perfectly cooked fish, and the molten chocolate cake was executed perfectly. Service was attentive and friendly. Imperfections that should not have occurred for such an expensive restaurant: No amuse bouche (most restaurants charging $35+ entrees offer an amuse bouche--BP has warm bread with herbed olive oil, good but eh); the ramen was...

The tables were spaced further apart that what I'm used to in NYC, which was a delight. The food was so yummy and the waitstaff were very attentive. We hoped to go there again but didn't have the time on that trip. By the way, to my surprise, even in the nicest restaurants, many people did not dress up; they... More

My wife and I visited The Black Pearl in Dunedin, FL for the New Years Eve, December 31, 2016, dinner special. The service was fantastic, the atmosphere was very romantic and comfortable, and the food was fantastic. The problem I had was the cost of the special meal at $125 per person. Looking at what we got it did not... More

This tiny restaurant in downtown Dunedin offers wonderful continental cuisine. The Lobster Risotto is to die for. The service is very professional. Good wine offerings. Great for special occasions.

A real treasure in Newport. Atmosphere and food are top notch. I recommend the seafood crepes as I have never had better. Yum👅

We were seeking a special restaurant to celebrate a milestone birthday and decided on the Black Pearl. It had been many years since we dined at this most intimate restaurant and we were glad we returned for this special romantic dinner. Truly an intimate setting we were so pleased with our waiter who was very conscientious. Our Wild Mushroom Tart... More

Expensive restaurant with overpriced and NOT unique menu. Service was mediocre, and we were not impressed with the choices available. Worst part was when a "palmetto bug" crawled down the wall next to our table. We understand this is Florida, but really??? And management was unwilling to make any accommodations....... Have not gone back....and do not plan to. WAY too... More

I could write for pages in excruciating detail about the perfection that was our 20th Anniversary dinner at Black Pearl on Nov 12th, but that would steal your joy from experiencing perfection on your own. I read every review and was convinced this is the restaurant I was looking for - and my expectations were only exceeded. We were in... More

My husband and I really enjoy going to The Black Pearl Restaurant in Dunedin. It's very small and intimate, and reservations are required, but it is absolutely worth it. It has upscale dining with a fantastic wine list and the food is amazing and very well prepared and presented. The chefs there are amazing and we have tried almost everything... More

The restaurant came very highly recommended to us when we recently visited Dunedin, Florida. We visited on occasion of our daughters birthday. Wine & Beer drinks only. The appetizers and warm salad dressing where excellent, I was disappointed in the Rack of Lamb main dish, fatty and not well cooked. Black ice cream was not worth the effort. The whole... More
