This was our second visit in a month. The first time we had excellent service. We were treated like welcome guests by the waiter and food was served at a fitting pace, so we could enjoy each of the delicious courses. I particularly enjoyed the grilled asparagus and ceaser salad sides. The second visit was sub-par in comparison, partly due to waitress being overloaded with too many tables. She divulged we should be aware of the effect on service. It appeared less effort was put into treating us in a friendly manner. The steak was tough, as noted on the menu, surprisingly. I would not order it again. Drinks were slow coming after order. I will try another visit, hoping for better service, as provided the first time. Also, prices were reasonable with a coupon.

the waiters seemed rushed in a not so busy time. there werent as many people, and yet when we got served our steaks, the didn't even wait to see if we needed something, or to check if they were what we wanted, they just dropped the plates and left. rude honestly.

The food was great as usually, but the service was terrible. We were not given menus when seated and the waitress wanted to take our order before we had seen any menus. When we were done eating, we had to call over the server to collect the dirty dishes and she only took a few. We had to ask three times for the bill. It was terrible service

We got the $45 feast. They now charge extra for sample platter. The porterhouse pork chop turned out to to be a regular pork chop that was a half inch thick and it was overcooked and dry. Broccoli was old and turning yellow. Will not go back even with coupon.

Food was great! We were interrupted by a patron who asked if we were done because he and his big family would like to sit where we’re sitting. After someone said something, he insisted and rudely asked us “Are you watching the game or what?” I had to yell to him that we’re still eating! He finally left. We were waiting for our desserts and pizzookie for we were celebrating my son’s 16th birthday. They ended up seating themselves next to us, giving us dirty looks. Then they were yelling at the waitress for their menus. Very rude. The waitress doesn’t give menus, the hostess does.

Was in the Oakland area for Business and Black Angus was recommended by a co-worker from the area. I took a couple of my staff and our forgien customers, the whole visit we all felt like we were bothering the staff by being there, had to ask for menues, had to ask for water and the waiter had the personality of a log. Food was ok but everything else was exceptionally bad, never ever felt as if a restaurant was doing me a favor by allowing me to eat there. I do not recommend this place.

Service was lacking. For a relatively empty restaurant, it still took 20+ mins for our food to come then waiting for the check took roughly 30 mins. Our server disappeared for the longest time and we had to ask other servers/busers to find her several times. Food was mediocre for the price. Overall, would not recommend.

We appreciated being greeted as we entered, and the warm welcome. We were seated right away. Not only was our server friendly, he clearly knew the dinner menu well and made some helpful suggestions. He was very attentive without intruding. The food was exceptional, from the artichoke dip to the mud pie. We both ordered steaks that were done to perfection and required no flavor enhancement. A pleasant surprise was being able to converse without straining to hear or having to shout. We will definitely come again, perhaps for brunch next time.

Service was so bad. Our order was not correct. We received our appetizer's after the meal. My daughters steak was burned and the prime rib that three people ordered was cold and over cooked. The pieces were very thin. The order of prime rib that we upgraded to the bigger size was smaller than the people who ordered the smaller size. We sat with dirty dishes on the table the whole time. We got our dessert and all the dirty dinner dishes were still there.

Our waitress was wonderful! Very friendly, polite and attentive. The food was good, but meat portions are a joke, especially the steaks and lobsters in a specialty meal are tiny. However, the generous portions are in the desserts.

RESERVATION ON OPEN-TABLE WITH ADD DETAILS. USE A WALKER. WAS NOT SEATED AT A NORMAL TABLE. PUT IN THE BAR AREA WITH CHILDREN RUNNING AROUND. VERY NOSEY!!! PUT THE REQUEST ON OPEN-TABLE AND IT WAS NOT PROVIDED. ASK THE WAIT PERSON TO BE SEAT ELSEWHERE. SHE WAS RUDE. TRYED TO TALK TO MANAGER BUT HE WAS BUSY. THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT, WAITRESS WAS VERY GOOD BUT ANYONE ELSE FORGOT ABOUT IT!!! JUDGE FOR YOURSELF WHEN GOING HERE.

It was very crowded on the night we went to Black Angus, but because of Open Table, we got seated right away. I belong to the Prime Rib Club, so we got a 6 oz. Top Sirloin steak, a lobster tail and about five shrimp plus two sides for $19.95.

This was our fourth year to celebrate Christmas Eve at The Black Angus. We also come every
Thanksgiving. Clearly we are happy here. We gather up friends who are at loose ends so the number varies. The menu is well-rounded so I don't always have the same thing. I do have
steak more often but I am never disappointed by any meal.

The food is getting worse. Maybe they just changed the cook.
The top sirloin steak is VERY dry. I ordered "medium rare" and it looked like recooked and well done. I also ordered a sampler and the batter is dark brown ( also over fried ).

We went to Black Angus for a friends night out. Great specials and cocktails. New manager introduced himself as we go there at least once a month. Very nice talking to him and our server was new but very efficient. We enjoy Black Angus because its close to home and we always have a great meal.

Went there to take advantage of the Trio Coupon Offer. It was my birthday and decided to dine out as my "Kids" were out of the country. The waitress Laura in the bar could not have been more attentive. I enjoyed the birthday greetings and special birthday dessert. Of the Trio items the only one that was not up to regular standards were the shrimp.
I had an awesome thing happen to me. A couple came in shortly before I was ready to leave, and I offered them a coupon I still had left. They thanked me and we chatted for a bit. When I gave my server my credit card, she said my check had been taken care of by that couple. I expressed my great appreciation and thanks before leaving. What a birthday!!

We were there for Thanksgiving dinner. Several of us had the turkey dinner. Others had regular entrees. The turkey was good but there was not enough gravy and the mash potatoes were cold. The dressing was average but the sweet potatoes were very good. Not bad for a surf and turf place. The appetizers were the tastiest. Service was excellent, especially considering the large number of customers in the restaurant. The booth was nice and reasonably quiet.

My experience was great. I made reservations for Thanksgiving Day, I checked in and 5 minutes later I was sitting at my table. The waitress was very nice and polite. Even though it was a holiday she wasn’t pushy or trying to rush us to order. I would definitely come back again and again for Thanksgiving. Thank you for your excellent awesome service.
