Super disappointed. We came here with friends for Denver restaurant week, and after paying $100 each including drinks, we were still hungry! We went to sexy pizza down the road for some real food.
What we had was delicious, but you sure didn't get much of it! I think my dessert was bigger than my entree. I understand that Denver restaurant week is meant to be a sample of some of Denver's finer restaurants - and a sample is exactly what we got. But to leave people hungry is a poor effort on their part. The overhead on food in general is ridiculous, black pearl could have really afforded to serve more. This attempt to bring people back failed, we won't be back.
Service: good, friendly, quick to refill our water. Although when clearing plates had no shame asking me to pass mine over so they didn't have to try and squeeze between tables (I'm no snob but when you charge silly amounts for food I want meticulous service) and after losing our knives to our appetisers, had to ask for some with our entrees.
Food: for appetisers I had the lamb arancini, it was nice, not much lamb in it, hard as rock carrot slivers on the side and just 1 arancini ball. My hubby got the vegetable napolean, said it was very good too.
For entree I got the squid ink pasta with lobster emulsion. No lobster taste whatsoever but was nice otherwise. My hubby got the lamb t-bone. It was delicious!! The Yorkshire pudding was missing gravy though. One of our friends had the malfatti, she said delicious but tiny.
Dessert was the choice between and orange chocolate blondie and a pear caramel pistachio tarte tatin. The were both great and larger than expected after the first two courses.
