Nice brunch! – Found this place on citysearch and the reviews paid off. Went there for Sunday brunch today and was pleasantly surprised... Now to be honest I chose it based on the unlimited Bloody Mary, Mimosa factor but the food itself as well as decor were excellent.
They started us off with a small basket of mini muffins that were very tasty. For our meal we both chose the eggs benedict (per the waiters suggestion) the hollandaise sauce was tasty and what I appreciated is they didn't smother everything in the sauce, but were very quick to offer an extra side to my friend who likes more sauce then I do. Most surprising there were actually three servings on the plate not the standard two. Even the pineapple side served with it had a pleasant flavor. My only mild complaint was the bloody mary glass could be bigger (small wine glass), but when it's being refilled that's a bit of a moot point
Well worth the $14.95 with or without the drinks. We'll be back for dinner for sure!
Excellent food and reasonably priced. – Finally a restaurant in Park Slope with excellent food, atmosphere, and customer service without "Manhattan prices". Lobster and linguine are the best....great for small group parties.
Great food,Good prices,Awesome atmosphere – What a pleasant surprise it is to find a place like this in Brooklyn.Great atmosphere.Amazing food and good service.Manhattan resturant at Brooklny prices.One thing I will say is weekends are really busy so call for a reservation or go on a week night.I have been there afew times and will definitely go back.I have recommended it to some of my friends and havn't heard a complaint yet.
Great atmosphere & Food – Finally, in Park Slope .Brooklyn, a GREAT place to eat with an atmosphere to rival the best Manh type upscale restaurant, but with gourmet prepared meals at reasonable prices. Try to get a seat on the stepup level and appreciate the ambiance including the unusual open wood/brick burning pizza oven. Can't wait for my next visit. Ed
Yummy Cocktails! Great late night night happy hour!! Even better food! – I went to Black Pearl in Park Slope and had a great time. The restaurant itself is beautiful and sleek decor. The bartenders were freindly and the cocktails were fantastic! We came for a drink and stayed for dinner. I had the best Sea Bass i've ever tasted, seriously... I also loved the bellinni. If your in the slope, make this your new regular spot, I know I have!!
upcoming friday night hotspot – I just went there recently and i have to admit i was very impressed. The atmosphere is a cool city-like one. I tried the crab cakes for my appetizer, let me tell you , amazing! nothing short of that. My main dish was a Sea- bass Filet. It was nothing short of excellance. I couldn't complain about anything. My dinner there was great. I cant wait to bring my b/f there for brunch this sunday.
Good food, but super-slow service – I have to admit, I was really looking forward to Black Pearl opening. It's right down the block from me, sports a great menu filled with classic italian fare, and personal pizzas that really melt in your mouth. My first night dining there was a great experience. The calimari is a must-try. The plush booths are comfortable, and the decor is a good combination of relaxing and romantic.
But somehow, it's gone down-hill since day one, and now I need to know I'll have 2 hours to dine or I'll end up frustratred by the end of waiting and waiting and waiting for service and my meal. My two most recent experience of black pearl left the same sour taste in my mouth, which is unfortunate since neither had anything to do with the food.
A few weeks ago, I went there for a romantic Saturday night dinner. We were seated immediately, and all seemed fine. But once we ordered our main courses, the waiting began. And we waited. And waited. For a while, it seemed they'd forgotten about us. Granted, Saturdays are crowded. You can certainly tell each dish is prepared with attention. After we finally got our food (great), we had to practically send up flares to get a check to finally leave. By the end of the meal, there were several people waiting to be seated and we wondered why they haven't found a balance between being courteous to leave diners time to talk, and turning over the tables.
But the food is so good, I had to try again. This past Monday, I had a friend in town, and three of us met at Black Pearl to give it another go. Again, drink orders were rushed, meal orders delayed. The appetizer came quickly and it seemed the experience would work out well. But then minutes slowly ticked by before we got our meals, and our check was even farther behind. A good hour-plus was wasted just trying to get out of there.
Unfortunate, but perhaps fixible. I'll give them another try, or maybe it's time to start ordering out for delivery.
GREAT NEW SPOT! – also found on city search and was extremely suprised! the food and the service and the drinks were all great!! will def. be back!!
Loved it! – Just discovered this place through Citysearch. Had a great meal on Sunday. There were so many wonderful sounding things on the menu I had a hard time deciding, went with the specialty, seafood risotto, and was extremely pleased with it. Very reasonable prices. Great service and ambiance. The noice level was a bit high, since sounds seem to really bounce around in there, but overall a highly recommended restaurant.
Great new spot in Brooklyn! – I found this restaurant on Citysearch and am sooo happy! The food was great, service perfect-really nice waiter, and the vibe was cool. I will be back.
