  • Going Downhill
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    This used to be my favorite restaurant, but it has been going downhill. We had lobster which was terrible, it says grilled but was boiled to a hard bland peice of plastic. It was my wife's birthday. They give a giant chocolate chip cookie with ice cream and a candle normally. I wrote on my reservation and also told the host that seated us it was her birthday. The server brought the check and I had to say it was her birthday which was embarassing. Due to this the server got a 15 dollar tip instead of the 50 I would have given her. I don't believe I will be going there again unless I hear of improvemnets

    I've always linked Black Angus booth setup that gives you some privacy from other diners and reduces noise. The food is good and if you watch for a regular coupon you can get a good dinner value called the Campfire Feast (shared appetizer, 2 dinners with 2 sides each, and a shared desert). We go regularly.

    Sat us next to noisy group when there were plenty of other open tables. Waiter got orders wrong on multiple times. Didn't bring condiment I asked for. Waiter lacks confidence and customer service skills. Managers passed us 5 times and didn't check on how things were. The bill was wrong and overcharged items.

    The fire-grilled prawns were just as delicious as the last time we had ordered them there. The vegetables (green beans and also broccoli) were neither over- or undercooked and we enjoyed every bite. We loved the molasses bread and ate every last crumb. Our server was pleasant, friendly, and most accommodating. We both are looking forward to another meal at Black Angus

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 8/17/2014
    Service was slow -waited a long time before ordering and for food delivery. My steak was so tough that I returned it (only 2nd time in my life I have done that). 2nd steak was also tough. People at the next table sent back their 3 steaks for the same reason. What's going on with the meat there? The manager credited us $20 for my bad steak but I didn't go there for a credit, I went there for good meal. This was a special time for our family with my 90 year old Mother and my brother and sister-in-law who had come in from WA state. We used to eat here all the time and it was good. Will find other places to eat now. Very disappointed.

    The waitress was very attentive and welcoming. We enjoyed the wine, however not a great selection. The steaks, fish, prime Rib were very good and cooked to order. The baked potatoe needed about another 5 minutes as the middle of the potatoe was a bit hard. The salad was nice and fresh. Overall a good experience and we will return. The manager did come around and ask his guests how we were enjoying the meal. That is a sign of a good manager who cares about his guests experience. Thank you

We were seated about five minutes after arrival. Our server was fantastic. Very friendly and always made sure we were satisfied. Food was delicious!

    Dined on 8/1/2014
    I'll start by saying that it was a good idea to make a reservation, as this place gets pretty crowded on Friday night. I ordered the prime rib and lobster dish; the prime rib was delicious but unfortunately I can't say the same thing about the lobster. The lobster was definitely overcooked and pretty tough, so I only ate half of it.

    I Made reservations because I know this place gets busy. However when we arrived and told them we had reservations we had to wait until everyone that was there before us was seated. The couple who arrived in front of us told the girl they did not have reservations and were seated before us. So this place is first come first served. Will need to find another place for dinner.

    Black Angus in Pleasant Hill is a long-time favorite for excellent steaks and prime rib at a reasonable price. Unlike other chain steak houses, this venerable establishment hasn't deteriorated over the years. Management pays attention to food quality and the service provided by the staff. Even if some in your party don't eat beef, the salmon is always a reliable alternative. The 8-ounce filet mignon (medium rare, please) is often better than the ones served at high-end steak houses at twice the Black Angus price. I put it in the "reliable standby" category for a place to go when you want a hearty meal that won't break the bank. Cocktails are reasonable; wine list is basic and uninteresting, but corkage is modest, so wine lovers should BYOB.

    Our server Friday night was terrific. Twice she recommended something and said if we didn't like it she would replace it with another item. We did like the item. Yet she brought out the other item anyway and said that we should just have it so that from then on we would know if we liked it enough to order again. This is so much different than the normal guilt we feel when a server brings a a wrong or poorly prepared item and we have to ask for a replacement. She was proactively making us future customers. She makes us want to come again!

The artichoke appetizer was wonderful as were the entrees'. By this point we were stuffed and took most of our entrees' and the desert home with us. We had a marvelous time and the server was superb.

    Food:some sort of redcolor on top of primerib so it looks medium rare. Bill didn't reflect the 30%off(promo). We were upset when our beer wasn't discounted when the waitress verified it would. Manager came over, told us the coupon didn't deduct drinks.....meaning to tell us we were wrong. We explained to him what the waitress had told us and he still kept being defensive even though he knew his waitress was wrong. I know some restaurant proprietor wouldn't argue with their customer and adjust accordingly....but he kept going at it. Eventually after some back and forth he said he would adjust it. This is not about a few dollars. It is about what you tell your customer and then come back and say it wasn't after we finished our meal.

    This is our place to go for good food, great service and celebrating a special occasion. Better food here than a recent meal at a so called high end place in Lake Tahoe. I love the filet mugnon with bleu cheese and mushrooms. I like I can pick the sides, asperagus is delicious, big, and several of them. Most restaurants give you 2 or 3 of the tiny ones...
