    This is my first time to visit Black Angus. The Ambiance made me feel comfortable and I had a great time to chat with my kids and my wife. The quantity of each dish is more than enough for one person. However, the soup tastes too salty.

    We decided to go by Black Angus to celebrate a special occasion. It was not a particularly busy night but our server was slow and at time felt like she was just avoiding serving. We paid with cash so we would not have to wait for our credit card to come back.

    It took 40 minutes for our food to arrive after ordering,during which time we only saw the waiter walking by and not checking for drinks or anything. When the food arrived we ordered drinks and were finished eating when our drinks arrived.

    We has a reservation for 4 for 6:45, and didn't get seated until 7:10, despite the fact that there seemed to be few people in the bar area. It took over 20 minutes for a server to take our order and another 10 minutes before drinks and bread arrived. My salad didn't arrive until my food was served, despite my request for it before the meal. I had ordered prime rib medium-rare and it was brought to me well done. I sent it back for the correct level of done mess, and it can back medium. Our friend's meal was also incorrect. We waited for over 20 minutes for our bill at the end of the meal. I expected much better service and food. I won't be returning anytime soon!

    We ordered one of the 2 for dinners and in our case was medium rare prime rib and salmon. Both of the dinners were very good and included a sampler platter of munchies to start and 1 very ample dessert. Everything was very good including the service.

    Consistently good steaks, salad and tasty desserts. Especially if you're in the mood for "steak-and-potatoes". We usually choose Black Angus whenever there's a special occasion for "just us", and are never disappointed. Service is consistently good, and it's one of the few restaurants with more private seating.

    BUSY
    Dined on 8/16/2014
    We went in a few minutes early for our 8:30pm reservations. The place was packed. I've never seen a lobby so busy, nowhere to sit. No one being seated. Customers complaining they aren't being seated exactly at their reservation times. Once we were seated there were plenty of open tables, it looks like they didn't have enough waiters. Not sure but too busy for my liking. I may have to go to one in my area. The food was good but we were sat next to a large party table. They had about 5 children. We were out for date night, a little peace and quiet but that's not what we got. Two of the children actually played with there cars on our table as there parents sat and talked. It was very rude.

    I was looking for a steakhouse for my boyfriend's birthday. This place came up, and since I had heard about it before I went with it. They were very accommodating when we needed to add two more people to our party. The waitress seemed a bit overwhelmed with taking our orders. The portions were EXTREMELY small for the prices. It's a bit cramped , and we were in the back with no windows. Overall, it's ok, but I'll def be looking for something better!

    We made reservations for a birthday party, and requested a table. First they tried to seat us with another party that we didn't know, then they tried to seat us at a table for four which did not work. They did end up comping us an appetizer, but the whole meal was ruined by the initial mess ups.

    Yes. It was a mistake to eat here assuming that I would get a good steak. The large rib eye steak had very little flavor. The service was space with zombie like responses. The salmon smelled and tasted on the brink of expiration.

    As always, the food was excellent. However, every time we go to this restaurant, the hostess attempts to seat us in the bar area, which we find undesirable because of the TVs and loud conversation. Even if we put on our Open Table reservation request, "We do NOT want to sit in bar area," the hostess tries to put us there. If we refuse, then we are told we'll have to wait 10-15 minutes for a table, although there are plenty of open tables and people who came after us are seated. The hostess should ASK if the bar area is okay, not just automatically take people there -- especially older people who aren't inclined to enjoy that environment.

    This is not a great steak restaurant. It is, however, a place to get dinner, some tasty bread, and decent combos of steak, chicken, ribs and shrimp. The food is good, not great. The prices are reasonable, especially if you choose the specials or better yet, have a coupon. Join the club and e-mails arrive with decent deals. Not great, just good. But sometimes a good restaurant is what is called for. We would not go there to impress anyone, but we go with close friends and share coupons. For that, this is a good place to eat.

    I am a weekly customer and as of late, whenever I make an opentable reservation, it takes longer than when I walk-in. And the food has a notable drop in preparation and quality if you dine after 8pm. Also your special requests to the hosts, preference for seating are heard, but acknowledge with a sorry we don't have enough servers.

    Seated our party in the sports lounge and could not hear any conversations due to the extremely high volume of the sports broadcast, server said it's always that loud, well it's TOO LOUD!!!! Worst experience at this BAS. Glad I came at 6:30 though, waiting area was packed. They were very accommodating when changing our reservation to a larger party. Have has better plates here so I will return since it's in the neighborhood.

    Evening out with family for celebration. Great service with real smiles and concern for overall experience. Food cooked to request, especially for shellfish allergy, deliciously spiced. Waitress was there enough, but not too much, with just the right amount of questions and concern. Timing of courses was perfect also. Would be great spot for evening out with special person. Loved the upbeat music and total look of place.

    Black Angus is my wife's favorite location when she has to fill her prime rib fix. She gets hers medium rare and I am rare. She loved it as always and it was just fine for a neighborhood steak and bar. Less than 3 minutes from home. In a pinch we could walk. Used Open Table for our reservations. Outstanding.

    We dined at the restaurant to celebrate my daughters birthday. We were a party of 8 at 6pm in the somewhat empty establishment. The waitress came up to the table and took our drink order and when brought back the drinks took the food order. While waiting for our food we were never offered refills on any of our drinks until we had to hunt down our server. The service just seemed very ruff overall. She then brought our food which was ok. The desert was brought to the birthday girl and we had to ask for the others that were part of the dinners. One was the dinner for two and one was a kids meal. At the end she surely rushed us the check and was really quick to process that. I just don't feel that she cared or was overwhelmed by the big group.

    Dined on 6/15/2014
    I understand it was busy, but if you offer reservations, and I make one, I shouldn't then have to sit around and wait for 30 minutes past my reservation time just to be seated! My husbands fillet was good, my son's mac n cheese was good, but my salmon had zero seasoning and rather than send it back and wait for however long it was going to take to fire another, I just ate it. I miss the mac n cheese sidekick, but overall the food is generally fine and the service is usually ok. Just don't go on a special day/ holiday because everything seems to slip.

    My family and I wanted to re-visit this Black Angus inside one month to give the service another chance. And we are VERY glad we did! Our server Monica could not have been NICER and ATTENTIVE to our requests. We were seated in the bar area so we could watch the Post Game of a SFGiants game, the opening game of the BB championship playoffs, even some golf. My free birthday dinner certificate was honored as was an option for a special mixed grill. Excellent food, plus kind service, and sports. Best 2nd-chance birthday dinner ever!

    After a hectic day, leftovers did not fit the bill. There was a dining coupon on the fridge for Black Angus. Let's do it! Went on the Web and made a reservation quickly. It was a quiet Monday evening and we were seated quickly. The food was ordered and prepared as we requested. The wait staff was courteous and efficient throughout our meal. We enjoyed ourselves and appreciated having the Black Angus meet our dining need in their typical professional and efficient manner. We are never disappointed in our dining experiences at this restaurant.

    Dined on 5/31/2014
    The food was good- as expected for a chain steak house. 3 annoying things happened. I asked our waiter if the bartender knew how to make a Mint Julep. He came back with my 2nd choice. He said the bartender did know how to make it & had the ingredients but they did not have a code to charge for it. At the table sitting next to us was a very loud patron preaching to his table-mates. We we're just about to ask to be moved when our food quickly arrived, so we just ate listening to our neighbor's religious views. Then when we were almost finished with our meal, someone started to vacuum. Not just a quick clean up 2 or 3 minutes, It went on & on. We did mention it to the waiter and about 5 minutes later it stopped.
