Great spot for Mother's Day3 generations of foodies - all thrilled with the day!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBlack Duck Rocks!What a treat to dine at Black Duck! Located within the Park South Hotel, the restaurant is cozy and inviting, with a lively bar. For starters, we ordered the Caesar salad and mixed green salad -- both fresh and crisp. Our main courses -- the roasted duck and pork chop -- were fabulously delicious. The duck was tender and juicy, as was the pork chop. Dessert: the red velvet cake -- yum! Black Duck also has a nice selection of wines. As for the service -- excellent. One nice surprise -- a small jazz band (bass, drum, sax) entertained the dinner/bar crowd. We'll definitely return to dine at Black Duck!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was great! The signatureIt was great! The signature dish (a duck ) pretty tasty !

The truffle fries, crab cakes, and kale salad were just amazing!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have now discovered thisWe have now discovered this place tucked away on a side street and we will be coming back.
The food is excellent and comes from very fine purveyors and the happy hour deal is a good
one if you come on the early side. And they are very obliging when it comes to making any
kind of substitution on your dish. And how welcoming they are. All in all, a very good
formula.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was food, but theThe food was food, but the wait help was exceptionally helpful and attentive!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways A Treat!My boyfriend lives near Black Duck. We always have a really great time when we go there! The food is consistently excellent and the service is attentive but not annoying at all. Call ahead if you're going for the jazz because the schedule is a little inconsistent.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find!This was a great find; it is a lovely restaurant which has a small jazz group on many evenings. The food is good; service is attentive without being intrusive; prices are moderate and portions are large. I certainly would recommend it for a pleasant evening.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMQuite simply this place wasQuite simply this place was excellent. My amazing date and I decided to go on Friday which included a jazz band. The wait staff was pleasant, informative and attentive. The environment seems to be made for a nice date but they had a nice front area They also have a few tables in the front for when the weather improves. The highlight of the experience was the food. We started with the sliders. They were absolutely tasty, though a bit dry. My date had the roast chicken and I the roast duo. It was immaculately prepared. At first it did not seem unusual but each bite was more and more interesting. This is definitely a place that we would frequent3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favoriteMy wife and I come into the city every once in a while to see a play or just hang out. We have been here a few times, and it is great. When booking through open table I made a "special request" that we were interested in gluten free options. Upon arriving they confirmed this with us, and the waitstaff was prepared with recommendations. Would highly recommend.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic Old New YorkVery good place.
Excellent drinks! Highly recommend the cocktails.
Food is good, but portions are sometimes small.
But overall we had an excellent time.
We will return!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA real find!I am always on the look-out a restaurant that serves fine food at reasonable prices , pleasent surroundings and allows you to bring your own wines. NB: you must make the reservations through Open Table and note it on your reservation. Kudos to Black Duck for working with Open Table to allow this. The menu is small but well thought out and nicely prepared with quality ingredients. We had the crab cake and elk sausage as a starter, Duck and pork chop for entrees. The desserts Chocolate mousse and pecan tart while good were not the same caliber of the starters and entrees. They will be changing their menu soon, we are looking forward to our next meal there.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMInnovative menuThe menu selections are few, but what is there is delicious and innovative. Grilled romaine with smokey bacon and a yummy dressing. Pretzel coated crab cake over a rutabaga couli. Striped bass perfectly cooked over a bit of cubed potato hash. Would definitely return.2/26/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic and IntimateWe thoroughly enjoyed our first dining experience finding the atmosphere romantic and intimate - perfect for celebrating a quiet birthday. Our waiter offered excellent service and accommodated our needs. The food overall was excellent; the duckling exquisite. Although there are not many entree choices and the dessert portion is too small for the price, we recommend Black Duck and will return again to enjoy another wonderful dinner.
