  • Excellent service and our food overall was great.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 11/22/2014
    I made reservations and was very appreciative that as crowded as the restaurant was, we were seated almost at our exact reservation time. Our service was excellent and the server was very informative about the menu and made it very easy for us to come to a decision about what we ordered. Our food was excellent and we were not disappointed. I had the Blue Butter Steak and it was melt in your mouth good. My husband had the Prime Rib and Lobster Tail. The Lobster Tail was huge and the Prime Rib was excellent. The only comment that I could make, would be to make sure that you come hungry because the amount of food you are served is promised to fill. We definitely had leftovers. Our overall experience was excellent and our service could not have been better. We will definitely be going back.

    We were NOT there on the date listed here. My review is for a very recent dinner there. There was a mistake w/booking via Open Table re this date. I had selected Thanksgiving Nov. 27 as the date and somehow they reserved it for Nov. 20th and I did n't look at the date listed on the confirmation. So we ended up being a no show. When I tried to rebook via telephone there were no times we could make it open, so we booked at another restaurant.

    Although I am not a beef eater, my husband is so we went there for his birthday. His steak had to be sent back as it was undercooked, and then when the kids were done eating he finally got his replacement entree but then the baked potato was undercooked. The steak was not event that good. I decided to splurge and order the "large" lobster tail for $31. It came out totally over cooked, rubbery and was bland. Even the butter was bland and couldn't save it so I sent it back. They brought me a new one which had some flavor but was undercooked in the middle and rubbery on the outside. It was clearly a frozen tail and not at all with the menu price. At least they took it off our bill. Mash potatoes were odd looking.... Shiny almost and they did not look like they were made fresh or from whole potatoes. At least the service staff was good despite being forced to handle too many tables on a very busy Saturday night. Should have gone to Vic's or Caps instead.

    Had Saturday night reservations for 6:00. Arrived at desk on time. Parking lot was full; we had to park some distance away. Those without reservations were being told they had a 1 hour, 10 minute wait. We were seated quickly. But from there we were disappointed. We ordered soon, but didn't receive our foot until 7:00. And my wife's steak was undercooked, they never brought the horseradish sauce until we asked for a "to go" box. My salmon was a generous portion, but bland. The salads were good as were the potato dishes. Our server, "Dmitri" spoke so loudly to us and nearby tables that it was jolting - hardly the relaxing dinner experience we were hoping for. His voice could easily be heard throughout that section of the restaurant. Fortunately, the manager comp'ed our meal. I would return, but perhaps not on a weekend night.

    I ordered a well done steak. I cut a quarter of the steak and sadly I received a steak that was very much bleeding and rare. The server apologized and took it back. Then, the manager brought the same steak back, only this time cooked a bit more. I cut the steak in half while he was still at my table and again the steak was still bleeding and rare. Now the manager apologized and took it back. The third time my steak was brought to me by the manager and server, it was well done. After all this, I was not charged for my meal. But, if I ever go back, I will make sure my food is prepared as requested in front of the server...and possibly the manager.

    I went to Black Angus with my family. The restaurant was busy and noisy as usual. We were seated promptly as we had made a reservation ahead of time. A manager took our drink order and our server showed up to take our meal order. Everything went great until I received the steak I had ordered. I had specified WELL DONE and it was delivered RED AND BLOODY. I returned it and it came back a few minutes later cooked to order and delicious. Removed 1 star on the food for not getting it cooked correctly the first time around. Overall a good experience.

    We have dined here many times and it is always good. Today, it took over 45 minutes for our food to arrive. We were visiting with friends so luckily we were not in a hurry. I could not spot our server to inquire about our meals but then the manager came over and apologized, without me saying anything, for our order taking so long. He then took half off the price to compensate us for the delay.

    I was returning as a unhappy customer as my previous visit did not go well. At first they asked 6 of us to sit at a very small table even thought it was a middle of the week evening and not crowded. They were however gracious about putting us at a bigger table when ask. The food was very very good. and the service was very very nice. It was also the night the Giants won the world series. The noise level was much louder than my last visit. :)

We asked to be moved and we were seated in a quiet area. The atmosphere was perfect, the food was perfect and loved the service. No complaints.

    I went to celebrate my 35th b-day at the restaurant. The food was mediocre and the service was the same. 3 out of 5 food orders were prepared wrong. I had to enjoy side dishes with out the meat for 15 minutes or more. When I asked for au jus to compliment my prime rib, the waitress told me she would have the manager bring it out, as if she was done waiting on us. I was disappointed with the whole experience, I am happy that I had good company to off set things on a whole.

    The food and service is great and they have outdoor dining with televisions. One of my favorite spots to eat that is nearby where I live, my dining experience was much better than when they first opened eight months ago. I received a coupon in the mail for lobster and shrimp but it is not on the regular menu so if I did not have a coupon then I could not have ordered it. Please put lobster and shrimp on the regular menu.

When asked if this was a special occassion, I said that the prior day was my birthday and we postponed coming to take advantage of a special menu item. Even with that, the servers all sang Happy Birthday to me and at the end we had a special birthday dessert. And it was fantastic!!!

    Had reservation for 6 with an additional high chair. Upon arrival they attempted to fit us all at a booth for 4 people and no high chair. They did not know what to do! Kids running the operation, they would have to get the manager to ok moving to a bigger table! How stupid. The customer is alway right, if you want more business. They found a bigger both upon approval of the manager? Still a little small. Will not go back.

    We dined on a Saturday and the place was packed. We got in right at our reservation time, the service was good but the quality of the food was fair to poor. My partner's filet was tough and had many areas that were not tasty. I had the prime rib and it was dry and with almost no flavor. On inspection I noticed that the prime rib was the end cut. I believe that these cuts need be identified to the diner in advance as I would have sent it back if I had known it was an end piece. We have eaten at this BAS three times and the first two were during the week. I am wondering if the weekend is just to much to handle?? We will return to try once more but will do so on a week night

    We went to Black Angus because we had a buy one get one birthday reward (up to $20.99). We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. We sat outside. The weather was great, they have several big screens around so we could watch the Wild Card game, it's part of the bar so Happy Hour prices were in effect, the service was great and the food was excellent. What else could you want!

    While the service was excellent during our visit, two out of three entries were over cooked to the point that one was enedible. To the restaurant's credit, when our complaint was made to the manager, he quickly removed both items from our bill. He even agreed that the ribs were burnt and he did not know how this plate was allowed to leave the kitchen. The other problem meal was a steak that was ordered medium rare, but came to the table well done. The steak was edible, but not enjoyable or worth the price. Another problem the restaurant needs to work on is the noise issue. Get rid of the background music which only adds to the din. We will return to give them another chance, as the food was excellent on our previous visits.
