Blackshop Restaurant & Lounge
This restaurant is beautiful,This restaurant is beautiful, the service was great, but my food was just ok. I suppose it was my fault as I didn't realize that veal scallopini is deep fried. It tasted of oil. My husbands meal was better than mine but he still did not love it. Drinks were wonderful, our appetizer was delicious, and the dessert list looked amazing though we did not get anything. It was a nice night out but I wish the mains would have been better.12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI called the Blackshop lastI called the Blackshop last night to thank our server for her outstanding service.
One of the ladies in my group is going through cancer treatment (chemo) for the third time. Her taste buds are out of wack and she is very negative, as we might all be in her situation. She returned her Gulasch soup, but then liked the leek soup.
Living close to Elmira, there are a number of good restaurants closer for me, but I do like the Blackshop a lot and know that I can always rely on the food and service, if I want to invite friends or when we have a special occasion.
Thank you very much,

Bleckert9/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy our dinnerWe always enjoy our dinner experience at Blackshop and had another great evening with our family.9/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful BlackShop BrunchWe met our friends that we don't get to see very often at the BlackShop at noon on Sunday April 7th for Brunch. The Brunch and Lunch menu are both available. Seeking a more private setting we asked to be seated in one of the side areas of the restaurant . The restaurant was busy but not packed. Our area was only occupied by the 4 of us. Service was attentive and given our interest was in Brunch, our drinks of Orange Juice and Mimosa's were ordered and quickly delivered. We ordered a made to order omelette, 2 lobster eggs Benedict, plus the feature french toast. The food was excellent. We stayed from 12 to 2 and were never rushed. We were even offered more coffee after we paid our bill and were talking still talking. We will return!7/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOur table was in the openOur table was in the open area, although there are many private rooms available as well. I was surprised at how intimate it felt, being able to hear my friends, but no one else. The food was delicious all-round - some tried fish, some veal and some beef. Everyone raved about their dish. Lots of good flavours that melded together. Many outstanding choices on the menu, making it difficult to settle on just one meal. Looking forward to a repeat of the experience!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTop quality all the way. HaveTop quality all the way. Have the features. Service impeccable, staff attentive and discreet.

There was a party in my mouth ;)2/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThank you Jodi!!This is our favourite restaurant and we try to go two or three times a year and our latest visit was another very good experience. Our waitress - Jodi - was exceptional and paid close attention to my wife's allergies, which allowed her to relax into the evening. I want to say a special "Thank You" to Jodi; that level of care and consideration is priceless!!!
