    Dined on 10/16/2012
    My wife and I dined with 2 other couples. We went for lunch to celebrate our friends 50th anniversary. The ambiance is warm and friendly. We were seated in a room near the fireplace and overlooking the golf course. Our waitress, Caitlin, was very friendly and efficient. She made us feel very comfortable. There were quite a few selections on the lunch menu and several price fixed complete lunches. All of our choices were well prepared and presented. The portions were quite large. As a surprise at the end of our meal, we were all served a complimentary glass of Prosecco, to celebrate our friends anniversary. A very nice touch. I highly recommend Blackwell's for a great luncheon..

    My friend an I went for lunch this past Friday, this was my second time there. The food is absolutely incredible with the most delicately prepared fresh local produce. The beet salad with fresh goat cheese, the sauteed chanterelles, the pumpkin soup, the local fish and shrimps....Excellent choices of artisanal cheeses...my only regret is that we were so full, we could not order the trio of creme brulee (which I had the last time)...a great dining experience. Merci to the Chef! Beautiful surroundings, fireplace, quiet and cozy room, lovely waitress...oops, I almost forgot, great 2009 Rombauer Zinfandel. Look forward to returning to Blackwell's very soon!

    Very pleasant setting with live piano player, attentive waitstaff so all in all we had a delightful evening meal. All entrées and salads were tasty, not overly salted and arrived hot. However menu leaned towards a meat & potato base. No complaints just a bit heavy for our taste. Having said that we intend to return once the cold weather sets in.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 9/7/2012
    Although the food was " good" it was nothing special. I say good because it wasn't bad..was mediocre... Filet was standard.. potatoes were under cooked and fried meatball apps were blah. Certainly did not live up to the reviews I had read on here. Atmosphere was nice and hearing the music from the bar was nice. Service was so so...waiter forgot my drink....took too long to check on us after serving our meal and was not knowledgeable about the liquor brands the bar had....ie Bourbon and vodka. .I'd go back... but wouldn't rush to do so.

This was never told to me. My husband and a friend both had $20.00 left on their cards and could not use it towards our dinner.

    Blackwells just underwent a huge menu reno and it is definately a positive change. With similar food to local resturants specializing in the north fork's agri and seafood industry, blackwells did not disappoint. Still offering their steaks as well but a little disappointed not to see a filet on the menu. Great looking restaurant beautiful interior!

    Blackwell's has change there menu. there's only one thing you will have to get used to at one time you were served with a book with the menu know you are served with a pease of paper as the menu that will take a little time for us to get used too, some how that's kind of cheap for a fancy Resturant. No problems with the food just the menu.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    Went to Blackwells with some out of town guests, expecting the same Blackwells steak menu. What a surprise, they've changed! I have to admit I was taken aback at first but after we took a deep breath and read the new menu we were pleasantly surprised. I had the spinach and goat cheese pizza and the fresh spaghetti, YUM! Hubby had his usual, aged Porterhouse and said it was just as good as he rememebered. Our guests shared the Bibb Salad to start then had the Striped Bass and the LI Duck. The food was amazing. Service was nice, adequate without being in your face. For dessert we shared the creme brulee assortment and the key lime tart...WOW, talk about flavor! Hubby and I have already made reservations to go back!!!

    We have eaten at Blackwell's before and had much better experiences in the past. We felt extremely rushed, despite the fact that we were there for our anniversary and hoped for a romantic experience. My husband's plate portion was extremely small, and my pasta dish was not tasty at all. The dessert, although very tasty, was also an extremely small portion. Definitely not worth the $170 we spent. This will be our last dinner at Blackwell's.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 7/5/2012
    Blackwells has always been our favorite place to go for the best food around, but they recently changed their menus and the change is so welcoming. We love the food and have since we found it a few years ago but we were growing tired of the steak dominated menu. New menus were a big hit. I had the Shrimp appetizer and the Duck and my husband had the Risotto and Striped Bass, all was WONDERFUL. Such flavor and variety. Now we can't wait to go back to try the other items.
