Waited 90 mins before we finally got our entrees - well we got 2 and a half of them - all cold. My daughter was so hungry she ate hers anyway bc she was too scared to send it back - not knowing when she would get a replacement meal.

Our server did his best - apart from not giving us any information about our food until the end.

We asked to see the managers on multiple occasions and Andre and Megan refused to see us - refused!!!

Wow, business must be really good when you can disregard local customers in this way.

Next time I mention Blackhawk grille as a potential dinner spot - I’ve given my family permission to punch me in the face.

It took over an hour to get our food after we ordered. We didn’t ask however they did discount our bill. We also ordered a take out when we placed our dinner order and we had to wait 45 minutes after we finished our late dinner before we received the take out order. They said they were having problems with their system. I will never go back.

We had a very nice dinner at Blackhawk Grille. Out server was Nick and he was training a young man named Derrick, I believe. They were both very attentive and gave us excellent service. The food was delicious, I had the Waygu steak with battered french fries , it was delicious. My husband had the scallops and enjoyed them very much! We also enjoyed a glass of wine. It was a very nice, relaxing dinner.

The food was fine, but not spectacular. It is pretty average for "fine dining". The biggest issue was the kitchen. Our food took WAY too long to get out to us. A glance back at the open kitchen showed several servers waiting to get food for their tables. By the time our food was brought to us, my food was lukewarm while my partners was normal temperature. This is an expediting failure. It is a lovely place, however. I think we may go again, but not anytime soon and not unless we're seeing a movie nearby. I would go to the Mexican food place again before I went here again.

Disappointing meal for New Year's Eve. Service was good, although included champagne was not offered and only given when asked for. Food was lukewarm but artfully arranged. A very mixed experience despite other good dining outings at this restaurant.

I always enjoy going to the Blackhawk Grille. We went for New Years Eve. When we made the reservation we saw nothing that said there was going to be a fixed menu. That was the only problem we had. We were not thrilled with the choices and will be more careful next time. The service was excellent however.

I've been to Blackhawk Grille many times before, I have even hosted a private event there. However last night I was not impressed. The best thing about the meal was the appetizers and deserts. One entree was so late that the rest of us were done before our friend got her meal. They apologized and comp'd it but still. Service seemed very slow and all the entrees were just mediocre, no one was raving about their food. The wine list is decent and the desserts were good. It'll probably be awhile until I go back as one of the best parts of this restaurant is sitting outside in the summer.

We live nearby and have visited this restaurant many times. We hadn't been there for a few months and decided to go there for a weeknight dinner with our son. We were disappointed. The menu has changed and the selections are not as appealing as in the past. In addition all of our meals had a problem--one had his meat overcooked, another found the mac and cheese to be very dry and bland and the third received a lukewarm entree. It was also very noisy on this particular night with several large groups around us. It really was not the pleasant dining experience that we expected. Too bad because it is really convenient.

2 of our 5 meals came out at one time. The other two were delivered about 10 minutes later(after one of the three had finished his meal). The reason was because the kitchen did not look at the ticket and follow the instructions. I am finding this at many restaurants and having cold or meals not served at the same time is making me stay away. People do have allergies and that needs to be taken into account.

We were there Christmas Eve 2017 and started in the bar for a cocktail. Our bartender from Kauai was great! We had a reservation and the menu was pre fix @ $60 per person. It took a little long to receive our first course but we were not in a hurry. My only complaint was that there were NO flowers on the tables. You could at least buy a dozen roses and put one on each table in a small vase. Other than that my experience was nice. The restaurant looks good.

The restaurant took our reservations through open table and then called to say that only bar room seating was available. They said that they would have a table reserved for us in the bar area, however, when we arrived there was not a table available as it is 1st come 1st serve, so our table was given to someone else who just dropped in. In addition, the bar was not adequately staffed so the service took forever. I would not recommend the bar area dining to any one who has a reservation. A very bad experience overall.

The food was ok, not really notable. The crab cakes were the best item we had. The clam chowder was fine.
The thing that really put a damper on our lunch was a very inexperienced wait staff. Our server told us a particular item was not served at brunch--we had to remind her that we were there for lunch(it was a Friday) and brunch is only served on weekends. We ordered an appetizer and a cup of soup and she asked us if we wanted those before the main course or after--huh?
Another member of the wait staff was wandering around the restaurant with two plates of food and didn't know what table they were for.
Someone spent very little time preparing these people to do their jobs and I felt bad for the newbies.
We've dined here many times before and have had very good service, but this visit was a disappointment.

It took us 2 1/2 hours with a reservation at 7:15 p.m. We didn’t depart until until 9:45 p.m. Unacceptable. Your staff must be faster. We enjoyed the food, but the service was horrific. I hope it improves, we’d like to try it again, but there needs to be improvement that we are aware of that management sounds an alarm on.

Went for brunch with my friend. I had the Spanish Choriso hash- so yummy. My friend had the Chilaquiles. When it came out she thought it looked like there was too much liquid, but it soaked up and was amazing. We both had bloody Mary’s which were fine, but not noteworthy. We had a table by the window and it was fun to people watch. Recommend.

We were there for a Saturday brunch at 10:30 . It was not crowded and yet the service was slow and unresponsive. It took a full 15 minutes to get 4 Bloody Marys from the bar. We had to repeat multiple requests for things like salt and pepper, and more coffee.

We made a reservation for Thanksgiving , about 2 weeks before . Everything was booked. Only time 1:45. Which was ok only 5 of us, including my 90 yr old Mom
We sat in a dark corner, asked if we could be closer to a window as my mom doesn’t see well in the dark. Not available. The place was not full at that time . Asked if the turkey plate could be both dark and white meat. No. But when plates came both were on plates. Sides, Brussels, Swiss chard, mushrooms were not good , very salty.
I could go on. Had to get up after about 20 minutes to ask where the dessert s were.
Not good, will be sure to book elsewhere, and much earlier in future. Will not go there again

Food was well presented as well as flavorful. Some food porducts seemed to be of lower quality than I expected, but was good overall.

Service was good once we got through what seemed like a shift-change. Some food items seemed to be of lower quality than what I expected

Pictured here is the corn appetizer. It was pretty tasty.

Third or fourth time recently that I had to send back the under cooked food. Pork chops twice and burger twice. Service was excellent with respect to the server who kept apologizing, but I doubt I will be backed.

It used to be a Friday night wind down but I guess I will have to find someplace else.
