Both the food and service were excellent! Started with warm fresh baked bread, unique and delicious house salad and a beautiful and creative appetizer. Both our entrees were over the top delicious! Portions were generous - we had to take some to go.

The Black Pearl offers at intimate setting in downtown Dunedin. We had escargot, foie gras, lobster risotto, and the Chilean Seabass. Superb service, excellent choices, I have a solid wine list. Not inexpensive , but what's your money for? Superlative service by Peter.

The Black Pearl never fails to impress. The atmosphere is so quaint and romantic and the food is always fabulous! The pork belly appetizer is a must!

Went for dinner. Filet was very good. Cooked perfectly. The beef tenderloin etoufee was too salty. The kind of salty that catches up with you halfway through the dish and you can't bear to eat another bit. They were kind enough to take it off...More

Place was overcrowded. Waiters seemed poorly trained and were rude and arrogant. The risotto was good but not worth the experience.

Small and dimly lit restaurant with somewhat stiff atmosphere. Service is outstanding and food is excellent. Impressive wine list, but no bar drinks, which is a major drawback.

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...More

At the Black Pearl, we do allow children in the dining room (We make the best chicken fingers in Pinellas County!). Now with that being said our dining room is extremely intimate and rather quiet. So if you do decide to... More

At the Black Pearl Restaurant, creating a one of a kind dining experience is our goal, every dish from the warm ciabatta bread to the homemade vanilla bean ice cream is made in house, and to order especially for you. We believe life is too short to eat bad food.
