I’ve been wanting to try The Black Fly for a couple of years now, we finally did and we are glad we did. My husband hand the Seafood Trio and it was beautiful. He said it was delicious 😋. I had the sugar cane skewed diver scallops. They were cooked to perfection. We will return next year when we are back in town.
Very tasty, great service.
Nice place, good service and food selection.
This was my first visit and I loved everything about this restaurant. The food is fresh and delicious , service was spot on and such a great atmosphere. I had a Caesar salad and pizza my husband ordered sushi which he said was some of the best he has ever had. The restaurant offers a great selection of wines . Our friends enjoyed the fish entree and carrot bisque soup. They also enjoyed the banana bread pudding and cream brûlée. I look forward to my next visit .
Excellent food. We were on vacation and ate there three separate times. Each time was very enjoyable.
In town for a family wedding and we had dinner here on the night we arrived. Pizzas for appetizers were delicious. All of the main dishes were excellent. We had the Pork chop, scallops, battered shrimp and skirt steaks. The wine list was phenomenal and well priced and the sommelier (Nick) was friendly and accommodating. Overall a great time.
My husband had the conch chowder, which he declared is “ the best I’ve ever had”. The waitress , Lisette told us the recipe is an authentic recipe from the Bahamas. It was awesome. We both enjoyed a beet and goat cheese salad with grilled mahi mahi. The fish was tender and cooked to perfection. Delicious ! The salad was perfectly dressed. We will definitely return when in St Augustine. It was a nice walk from the Bayfront Marin B & B.
Everything was Spot On from the moment we walked in the front door!
Nice Wine list with a $20 per bottle special on Wednesday’s.
Beet Salad was excellent as were the crab cake appetizer and the Pan Seared Scollops.
The Scollops were special as they were cooked to a perfect medium and served with a sweet onion sauce and arugula salad.
Seafood Trio Entree was excellent.
It consisted of a crab cake, mahi filet and 3 grilled shrimp. All this topped with a spicy jicama salad. A fantastic fusion of flavors.
I will defiantly be back for more.
We went for Mother's day night out. Lovely food, good service. i would highly recommend, and will go back when I'm in the area.
Pretty good food, great wine selection, loud, food is a 4 compared to other local places with similar pricing $$.
We had the Chile-Lime shrimp appetizer for two nights in a row because it was so amazing. The pork chop is delicious, very tender, and huge. My wife loved the Mahi dish. I don't think you can go wrong with anything on the menu. The chef knows what's going on with food!
Being a chef, I’m kind of critical. Every dish we had was absolutely delicious- we’ll seasoned, great appearance. Will definitely go back. 😁
Special date with my wife and it was EXCELLENT!!!! Our waiter was the best and we love this restaurant for any occasion.
Great service! Food, cooked to perfection,( twin lobster tails; delicious with veggies that were not over cooked). 6 of us enjoyed and will definitely return! We had reservations and even though we were running late the server was not upset, very accommodating!
We enjoyed ourselves. The only drawback was the noise. It was too loud at the start.
Exceptional food and service. It’s one of our two “go to” restaurants in St Augustine. Always pleased with the evening.
We eat here every time we come to our condo in St. Augustine. Food is very good. Our waitress, MC, was friendly, attentive and efficient.We would have preferred to sit in a booth but were told that they were all "reserved" although several remained empty during our stay. Not top level ambiance, but fine for a casual restaurant.
We LOVE Collage their sister restaurant. Prices are comparable. But nothing else compares to Collage. Bar atmosphere. I am allergic to gluten and they did accommodate me for that. The waitress was excellent but I ordered a side of avocado for a charge and it was minuscule to say the least. She did bring me another portion that was the same size. Very small. For the prices, we expected much more. Will go to Collage again but not here.
Love it there, vegetarian choices are great!
Specified birthday dinner, not even a verbal. Noise level way too loud. Food was mediocre at best and over priced. Website implies water location. Not even close.
It was nice but not running to go back. Too many other great places to try. Owner came over to check on table which was very cool
Black Fly is hands down my favorite restaurant in St. Augustine. The food is amazing, service is excellent, and the owner is usually making the rounds, personally ensuring customers are happy. A rare phenomenon!
Stopped in for a quick dinner before concert. Great food! Loved the ceviche app served in a conch shell!
Fast friendly service!
My Wife and We’re celebrating our 32nd Wedding Anniversary, that weekend. We Rented a condo in the Tidelands at Palm Coast. I am a fisherman and I have seen this resturant recommended on many a fishing show. We drove about 40 minutes to the resturant. We have been going to St. Augustine and Palm Coast for 25 yrs so we know the area and all its testurants etc.... The Black Fly is comfortable and reservations are easy to setup vua smart phone as well as directions. We had the conch fritters and salads for starters, both were fresh and tasty. My wife had the Scallops which were very large and excellent. I had the Yellow Fin tuna sushi excellent.
We will be back 🙂
all Entrees were very good, good options to choose from
Our waiter was fantastic and made our evening enjoyable
Nick, the manager, made several excellent recommendations and my wife and I had a very pleasant evening and a wonderful meal.
Wonderful service and delicious meal! I highly recommend for the seafood dishes.
This is the third time we've eaten here. My wife really enjoyed the Achiote Chicken. It had great flavor and was well-seasoned. I had the Seafood Trio, and would definitely not recommend it in the future. The crab cake was nothing special, the fresh-catch was decidedly not fresh, and there were three shrimp on the plate. For a >$30 entree, the Seafood Trio was incredibly underwhelming.
Their wine, cocktail, and whiskey menu is very thorough, and reasonably priced. I would come back for appetizers and drinks, but probably not dinner again.
WOW - every single thing we ordered, from Martinis to appetizers to entrees to deserts was fabulous!
Delicious scallops! Well prepared and presented. Very attentive wait staff.
Great food, service was fantastic. Had the catch of the day and blueberry margarita - both delish!
We were seated quickly. Service was a little slow, but not bad overall. The food was delicious. We'll be back soon.
Excellent meal at Blackfly! We were seated promptly at our reserved time and or server Jessie was attentive without being overbearing and made great suggestions when asked. The menu is extensive so we opted for several small plates instead of traditional entrees so we could sample more of the menu. Everything was fresh and preparation was spot on. Vaughn Cochran, partner and the artist behind the Blackfly art work spent the time to give us some helpful tips for our upcoming Bahamas trip. Great experience overall, will definitely return.
Delicious food, as usual! Sushi is so fresh and tasty. Chili lime shrimp is outstanding. Must have bread with it to sop up all of the extra sauce!
A wonderful restaurant, marvelous service, and superb cuisine!
Excellent service and food. We were very pleased since we are not local and simply did a bit of research beforehand. There are many options; I think we picked a good one.
I was told about this restaurant Thursday afternoon. I went to their website and changed my Friday afternoon/evening plans and made reservations for 6:00 Friday evening! Tight parking but, WOW! The service and meal were fantastic. Even got brave and ordered the Grilled Cauliflower Steak. Get a ramekin of their datil pepper bbq sauce and you are in gourmet heaven. We will definitely be back.
Excellent value and service. My only complaint was that it was extremely cold in the restaurant.
