    The service was excellent from the beginning until the end of our dining experience. They arugula salad was fantastic. The wine list was really robust. The only issue we had was that our main course – the trigger fish - was way too salty. But the service was outstanding, and we would come back again and just try something else!

    Maybe it was different pre-COVID. Food presentation was.good, To us, the flavor did not match. No biggie we had a wrong dish that had to go back. But it was the wifes so I told the waiter.to send my plate back under a warmer until my wifes food was prepared. Food arrived and my wifes food was ok (Fried Shrimp). Mine ended up being a clump of oily noodles. (Crab Cappelini). It was just past done from beung undet a warmer. Though I asked for that, I would not think at the prices you pay and the advertising that is done for the food, that a.chef would allow that to go back out. Perhaps our expectation was too much but between our wait and the other tables complaining we just paid for the experience and left.

    We have been at Blackfly many times. The food and service has always been top notch. Something was very off last night. The food was just ok - pricing is high in comparison to other “nicer” restaurants in the area. Waiter told us he didn’t enjoy his job and service was terrible ;-(. We were seated at a cramped table in a corner right by the entrance - when other 6 top tables were available. The restaurant known for its Wine selection was out of many of the wines listed on the menu . We ordered a pricier bottle of wine and had to ask several times for it to be brought to the table . It was finally opened 1/2 way through our meal. 2 people in our party received incomplete meals. It was my birthday and it was a very disappointing experience:-(.

    Very good experience; having gone by the place multiple times during ours stays in St Augustine Beach. Does not show up on Google map searches so we stopped in ahead of store hours. Food was very good and we will definitely come back again. The negative was that the waitstaff did not know the “Corkage” charge ($20. -$25.). Pretty high, based on other, comparable establishments.

    On a mother/daughter trip looking for seafood and found BlackFly. The interior was decorated with a fun and beautiful ocean theme and it was such a fun and colorful vibe. My daughter had the ahi tuna and could not stop gushing about the flavors and the sauce. She said she wanted to lock the plate and she is a 90 lb picky eater college student.

The other patrons were very friendly and made the experience even more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone seeking good food with a wonderful atmosphere to enjoy and evening out.

    The food was delicious and nice presentation and nice service received from staff. Although the food was good but nothing out of the ordinary. Everything was nicely flavored and yet didn't impress me as much as I wished it had. The wine selection was nice and dessert was ok. I greatly appreciate the opportunity to get to know another local restaurant. Thank you. J

    Ok, but nothing to write home about. Cocktails were great, one appetizer we had was great, shrimps were okay but nothing special, snapper was overcooked and had way too much seasoning, desert was okay. Service was great. Nothing was bad, but at the same time there is no culinary experience you will have here, so stop pretending you are a gourmet place under any shape or form.

    Great overall dining experience! The meals at our table were the blue crab capellini, surf and turf fried rice (steak and shrimp) and the chicken cordon blue. Each dish was delicious!! The restaurant was a little loud, but we could hear each other using our normal speaking voices. Can’t wait to go back!!!
