Blackstones Steakhouse - Connecticut
Anniversary DinnerIt was our first visit to Blackstone's Steakhouse as we were celebrating our 44th wedding anniversary. The food was quite excellent. The Chilean Sea Bass was perfectly done with a most complimentary sauce. The Surf and Turf was succulent and tasty. An outstanding Creme Brulee topped off the meal.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining ExperienceThe food was absolutely incredible. My party of 10 was absolutely impressed. The servers were totally accommodating and delivered an excellent experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid steakBlackstones has a New York steakhouse vibe and decor. Offers well executed standard steakhouse fare. The porterhouse for two was excellent and cooked properly rare as ordered. Similar to Peter Lugers but not quite as good as some steaks I've had at Lugers. I also tried the strip and fillet at Blackstones, both were good but didn't have the same aged flavor of the porterhouse. Overall great experience with solid steaks and prices you would expect at a high end steakhouse. $1,100.00 for our group of 9.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMVery above average staeakVery above average staeak for this part of the state and plenty to choose from. Wine last has surprise of Barbi wine and opening lollipop lambchops is a must.
Bar is small and not too mane "stools", so plan on drinks at the table.
Our server knew the menu, made great recommendations and added to the evening.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprising Find!Classic unique place especially given its location in a somewhat off color part of Norwalk. Great dining area, good ambience/decor, and the food and service is first rate. Not cheap however, especially the steaks which at around $45 seem to be a bit steep. Because I can cook a USDA Grade A steak on the grill for a quarter of the price I usually end up having fish! May be they should offer some lesser priced beef alternatives but of course that may defeat their objective of being a first rate steakhouse. But overall a delighful, memorable dining experience. They also mix great martinis and offer a first rate wine list as well. Hats off to our last waiter George of Montenegro who kept us laughing all night!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food - great service.Great food - great service.
