If you are craving good steak
If you are craving good steak comparable to an NYC steakhouse, this is better than Joe's in Bridgeport.

Very above average staeak
Very 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.

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!

Blackstones 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.

Great Dining Experience
The food was absolutely incredible. My party of 10 was absolutely impressed. The servers were totally accommodating and delivered an excellent experience.

It 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.

Local Dining at NYC caliber
My boyfriend and I went here for the first time to celebrate his birthday. Blackstones surprised us as it is hidden in a strip center but the caliber of food rivals Manhattan steakhouses, Ruth Chris or Capital Grill. The ambiance is dark and dated but you go for the food. The waiter was very helpful and quite attentive. I recommend the Chlean Seabass or the Filet Mignon...each cooked perfectly and fantastic pieces of meat/fish. It also has the prices of a high end restaurant but we will definitely come back for our next special occasion.

good food, small portions
We are huge fans of Keen's steakhouse in New York City. My husband goes there for the gigantic, delicious mutton chop. We tried Blackstone's hoping to please his craving for lamb. He said the lamb chops while they were tasty, were super small. Definitely not enough to satisfy a 200lb man. Maybe if there were 3 or 4 in that entree it would be bettter. Especially for the price of $42+ for that one dish. Like any steakhouse, sides are sold separately. The NYC restaurant's prices are the same if not slightly less for twice as much food. The steak medallions I had gotten were delicious and tender. Very good. The by-the-glass of Malbec wine was flavorless. Was not worth it. Service was excellent. Servers were very personable and professional.

Always consistently excellent
I have been to Blackstones many times and it never fails to impress me. Their steaks are perfect, seafood fresh and always excellent and above all their service is always outstanding. Aldo the owner is a great host

Strip Mall look - EXCELLENT Steak
Don't be fooled - this is a great place for a Filet even though it looks like nothing in a strip mall setting - be warned though, the fries are actually sliced potatoes 'chip' style.

Pricey but well worth it.
Pricey but well worth it. Porterhouse for 2 was as good as it gets as were sauteed spinach and home fries.

Great steak in Connectcut
The porterhouse for 1 can easily feed three people unless one is a 275 pound linebacker! The steak came out with the perfect temperature and was ever so tasty. We paired this as well as a nice veal chop with a Sterling Zinfandel which was delicious as well. The half fries/ half onion rings can't be beat. An enjoyable night out.

Took my husband here for his birthday. I had the surf & turf, he had the NY strip. Both were wonderful cuts of meat and cooked perfectly. Caesar salad was excellent. Wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the wine - great wine list by the way. Decor was a bit old fashioned but I liked it for a steak house - dark and masculine and everything very clean. We will definitely go back.

Awesome first time visit
We had been looking for a new steak house to try and though a bit of ride for us (45 mins) but the reviews and the pictures of the interior of the restaurant said "let's try" --- well --- you will not be disappointed! First of all you have to go on Saturday and ask for Mike (that's his "fake" name - he will tell you the story) as he only works Saturdays and the rest as they say is history. Streaks were all perfectly cooked, the presentation they do on the NY Strip is amazing -- they had a scallop and brusell sprout app that was to die for. Cant say enough -- we will def be back

A true steakhouse
Outstanding steak and service. Surf and turf was perfect with enormous filet and broiled lobster tail, wow! Excellent atmosphere for business meeting. Not the kind of place to bring wife and kids and that's a big part of what makes it special. Think Scotch, steak, business and they're the best around!

Plenty of beef to keep satisfied
This was our first experience at Blackstones in Norwalk and the meal was at the top! Our Server was excellent however a little too much on the talkative side however it made no impact on our experience. My husband had filet mignon, I had surf and turf, and dessert. All were excellent and prepared to perfection. One caveat however, although the food & service was excellent we found the pricing to be a bit on the high side for this area and its competition of equally excellent restaurants. We would go again however not on a regular basis but more on special occasion because of the cost.

I was searching (online) for a decent steakhouse in Norwalk. I was visiting the area and had no idea what was available. I booked the reservation online and was pleasantly surprised once I arrived. The waiters were friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The food was a bit pricey but one serving of each item (salad, steak, sides, etc.) would be more than enough to feed two hungry people and everything was excellent. There is a difference between "price" and "value"......I believe you will get the value for your money here. This would be a great place to take a 'special someone' out for a romantic dinner.

Excellent. The best steak in CT and on par with the best in NYC

Always consistently outstanding
Have been coming here for years and it's always consistently fantastic.

Don't let the location fool you
Despite being located in a strip mall this restaurant is as good as you'll find anywhere. The steaks are as good as you'd expect from a steakhouse but everything else is top notch as well. The lamp chops and diver sea scallops we're perfect and the sole which was prepared table side was excellent. Service was attentive and friendly. We'll be back to this neighborhood gem.

I HAVE BEEN TO BLACKSTONES STEAK HOUSE SEVERAL TIMES WITH MANY PEOPLE.
WE ALL LOVE THE EXCELLENT PREPARED DISHES.

I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND TRYING THIS VERY SPECIAL FOR A VERY SPECIAL OCCASION.
