Black Pearl Restaurant

Described as contemporary American cuisine, Black Pearl's menu is focused on using fresh, locally produced ingredients that deliver a fullness of flavor which can only come from foods produced and prepared in a conscientious way. For the diner, that means our changing menu will feature seasonal foods, grown locally, and picked fresh to ensure their fullest flavor. From fruits and vegetables to meat and poultry, Black Pearl is committed to serving foods that are grown and raised in a way that shows respect for nature, and, of course, a similar respect for those who produce them and you who consume them. In addition to our regular menu selections, Black Pearl features a fresh raw oyster bar. With a carefully chosen selection of delectable oysters at all times, the raw bar has become a dining destination of its own.

"Went for brunch. Appetizer was good Ordered food from somewhat limited menu food arrived and they made my wife the wrong thing. Took 30 minutes to get the right order out and even then it wasn't right. They comped us for her meal and the appetizer and bill was still $65 for 3 adults and one child!!! Not impressed."

"Ordered the lamb medium and it came out basically rare. The steak with the surf and turf was ordered medium rare and it was almost well done. Told the waiter that and he didn't offer a new steak. Desserts were okay. The server was hovering until we actually needed him. Took ten minutes for him to come over to get the bill from him."

"Brunch menu was limited to breakfast food and a few sandwiches. Really wanted the lamb burger and truffle fries. Cheese plate was exceptional ! Green chili needed some more depth, lacked body. Wanted more fries on the French Dip.
Really wanted oysters and appetizers for brunch, but the brunch menu did not offer these. Server seemed confused, and was a little slow."

"Great overall experience. Friendly staff. Chef's Board was a highlight. Only negatives were: the 2-person tables are very close together, the menu was completely different from the online menu, they no longer serve duck, and their only dessert offering were just two types of cake. The wine was expensive. We paid $70 for a bottle. Still, I liked the place and would go back again."

"Couldn't get any service at bar. Sat and waited at bar so that I could get an expensive bottle of wine bought and opened but bartenders too busy chatting about their personal love of playing cards... Unbelievable.
Our waitress was amazing. She saved the night."

"Most of our meal was great - appetizers were awesome and so were the entrees. The only complaint was the dessert. We ordered the smores, and the person who brought the food out said to us "this isn't usually how it's served, it's usually smokey and a much better presentation." The dessert was super cold and not great."

"Went to black pearl for restaurant week. Portions were extremely small and not really great, especially compared to the other restaurants we went to for restaurant week. I called ahead because we had someone in our party with gluten allergies and they told me no problem they could definitely accommodate. Our waitress said they couldn't change anything on the menu and couldn't really offer any replacements. Not sure if that's because they couldn't or she didn't ask. She wasn't very helpful or knowledgeable. Our initial drinks also took 20 min to get to us and the restaurant wasn't busy."

"Great restaurant. Love the creativity of the dishes and freshness of the menu. We've been here several times and the food has always been delightful. If you're waiting for your party, grab a seat at the bar. Bar staff was spot on and you could try the oysters prior to sitting. Drinks were great and refreshing. We will absolutely be back."

"We were a bit concerned about the negative reviews about portions and service but we were very pleased with both!
Parking is always an issue in the S. Pearl Street area. Consider alternative methods of transportation - especially if the weather is unpleasant."

"Thought the food and service were very good but the portions on the entrees were WAY too small for the money. My husband had the short ribs. He got 4 ribs with about 2 ounces of meat on them & about a 1/2 cup of potatoes for $29. I KNOW the food cost was $5.00 or less. With a mark-up like that, perhaps they should have added another 1/2 cup of vegetables."

"Great Date Night at Black Pearl, a place we heard had potential, a fine brunch and a great bar. The tasting menu/ prix-fixe hybrid we each ate had several exceptional parts. Evidence of great skill abounds in the Skewered French Onion soup (smoked Emmentaler!) Lamb Tartare & chili oil, Ling Cod (excellent lightness) the Buffalo short ribs and a rich but light Chocolate Lava Cake. I would buy the cake by the pound if they made enough of it. Ditto the amuse bouche, a puffy bit of bone marrow.
Stuff That Detracts: thinly sliced but raw, un-flavored beets and tough beet greens wrapped around the ribs, which only served to get in the way.
We can see different parts of this menu being paired off as full meals, and that alone would be worth returning a few times. The BP has found a level of cuisine that they are well advised to maintain. Good Show!"

"We went to this restaurant when we were in Denver for the weekend and chose it based on several reviews. We had a 5:15 reservation to make it to a 7:05 hockey game and did not get our meals until after 6:30. Between the time we placed our order and received our food our waitress approached us stating that she thought we had already eaten so there was confusion in the kitchen. Ultimately the manager came over to tell us our food was on its way and when it arrived my food was room temperature and my husband's 'medium' pork chop was nearly raw in the middle. As we were leaving our waitress told us that if she knew we had to be somewhere she would have gotten our food earlier!
Overall the food was mediocre at best, service was terrible, but the ambience was nice. For $140 meal we expected at least minimal courtesy.

"My boyfriend and I were so excited to dine at The Black Pearl for Valentine's Day. When we got there we were greeted and seated immediately which was excellent. The server gave a couple recommendations and then took our order. It took 2 courses before we received our bread, while other couples around us were eating theirs. Both our entrees lacked flavor. The menu appeared way more delicious than the actual meal was. The food was not executed well and had a poor pairing of sides and flavors. The portion size was also very small for the price point. The best part of the whole meal was the bread and rosemary butter! So disappointed, definitely will not be back."

"Our friend had been there for brunch and said it was good. We had dinner. Staff was polite, though somewhat disorganized. Our waitress was very sweet, but couldn't really remember all the menu. Portions were somewhat small and not exactly what we thought has how described. Overall it was a nice quaint little neighborhood spot and I liked it overall."
