    I have visited Blackshop Restaurant & Lounge more than couple of times and each visit never seems to fail to impress me. From the moment we enter, to the moment we leave we are taken great care of. The food in my opinion was scrumptious and the cocktail of my choice was also prepared very well. The waitress ensured we were taken care of and even restaurant management had come to check up on us as well - very much appreciated. I would most definitely recommend Blackshop if you’d like to go out and enjoy a nice, fine-dine restaurant.

    I had a horrible experience on Tuesday night. I made a reservation to celebrate an anniversary for my brother who was visiting out of town. I got there at 7:55pm for a reservation of 8:00 and I was seared by Tanya who also was our server. We ordered 2 glasses of wine (6” and 9” oz) and water to start. About 5 minutes later we ordered calamari to share. Tanya brought the cold slices of sour dough , completely tasteless and our chewy calamari which we weren’t impressed. Once she came back to ask if everything is ok, we right away ordered our meal. We ordered 3 steak and one chicken Cesar salad. Our meal took almost 45min to 1 hour according to the receipt provided to the kitchen and we finally received our meal at 9:15pm. We were extremely disappointed and unhappy about the waiting time. However, the moment we started eating, everything was going wrong… the steak was cooked medium rather than medium care , with mashed potatoes and slices of onion as side vegetables. Very weird since we never experienced such a thing. My chicken was chewy and it was a massive chicken breast rather than sliced thinly for a salad . Very unprofessional. We couldn’t eat our meal at all and the manage on side who happen to be Jeremy the bar manager came to our table. I had to voice out my disappointment and my frustration with tonight experience. I told was my meal will be taken off the bill however I still needed to pay for the alcohol. We wasted 1 hour and 1/2 and left with empty stomach and our celebration ended at McDonald. I come here very often with friends and family and I talk about Blackshop very highly to my entourage. I was in fact there about 3 weeks ago and we had chicken salad without any issue .i should not have to pay for anything at all and I should not have been asked to pay for my drinks. I would love to come back and continue to support you guys , but I didn’t get the service I deserve being a regular. Something better should have been done in this situation…

    The food was under cooked and the when they brought it out again it was cold. The service was good as they tried their best to accommodate us. They ended up giving us our entrees for free. We were pleased with that as we didn’t end up eating anything except for dessert. Probably will not go back as this is the second time I have not enjoyed the food.

    Would have been 2 stars, but they ended up giving us 1 meal for free. This was our first time at Blackshop. My wife and I went for our anniversary. I made a reservation and we were seated quickly. The table was very close to another table behind me though and it was a walkway so my chair got bumped a fair bit as people walked past it and it was also close to the door so we kept getting a cold draft when the outside door got opened. There were unfortunately no paper towels for the washroom sinks so I couldn't dry my hands after washing them. We ordered 2 mains and my wife got a drink. This is where the experience really went downhill. The server brought us some fresh bread while we waited. It was after about 45 minutes since we had ordered that we realized the food was taking a long time. At that point I tried to get our servers attention to get an update on the food, but she was avoiding us. Eventually at the 55 minute mark after ordering, I got a manager's attention to ask what the hold up was. The food came as we were talking to the manager. He apologized and said it was a bit busy so the wait was longer. That didn't make much sense since the couple next to us came 15 mins after and had an appetizer and was half way done their mains before our food even came. They kindly offered us free dessert but we had other plans for dessert so they gave us one meal for free. If not for the free meal, it would been 2 stars. I will say that when the food came, it was really good. 5 stars for the food. Overall, I think we expected much better from a high end restaurant like this.

    Enjoyed a nice dinner Saturday night. The gentlemen who served us in the red room was very knowledgeable, attentive and very helpful in recommendations. The carrot risotto was 10/10 the only thing I’d omit is the stemmy greens I had a hard time chewing and digesting those. But that aside it was a perfect meal to me. My husband’s tenderloin came out a little undercooked for his request at medium well. And it came out butterflied which was odd in itself for such a nice cut of meat. Never seen that before. The man beside us ordered the same thing and his meal looked totally different. Huge crispy onion rings on top of his steak. Our battered rings were unfortunately raw onion inside and soggy. Small portion of potatoes and coleslaw was runny and all over the plate. Disappointed in his meal everything else was amazing.

    The ambience was good except for a rather loud patron seated just behind us, the food was very good and service was attentive. For a restaurant that charges $50-60 for a Main course, we kind of expected a little more; however the overall experience was quite good.

    Looked for a restaurant close to the 401 for a business dinner for 3 and made a reservation for 5pm. I was welcomed by a friendly face at the front desk and escorted to the bar area to meet my party. They were enjoying a cocktail and we proceeded to our table. The chairs in the dining room were very comfy and I appreciated the size of the table - not massive but rather just the right size so we could converse easily without raising our voices. Eventually, more guests arrived to be seated at surrounding tables but we really didn't notice any change in noise levels. Our server was fantastic and super patience. My dining companions and I hadn't seen each other in a couple years to we spent alot of time chatting over drinks before even looking at the menu. Not once did we feel rushed. We ordered the calamari as an appetizer for the table. Everyone enjoyed it - I particularly liked the spicy mayo based sauce served on the side and the complimentary bread didn't last long. I ordered the Venison as my main and it was outstanding. One of the best mains I've enjoyed in awhile. It was cooked superbly. As was the asparagus and mash sides. Thoroughly enjoyed our time at The Blackshop and am still shaking my head the next day that I waited this long to finally try it. Thanks for a great evening and looking forward to next time!

    Another good experience at The Blackshop. Our server, Kamil, was attentive to my many dietary restrictions. The chef was accommodating and prepared an off-menu dish. My husband enjoyed the hummus with house-made lavash, and the Manhattan style seafood chowder. The live music was relaxing and a good volume, even seated close by.

    We had the new tasting menu and it was absolutely fantastic. Michelle was our server and made sure our night was perfect. The chef came out a few times to check in and went above and beyond our expectations. I highly recommend the tasting menu. We go to the Blackshop every year for our anniversary and this was by far our best and most memorable experience.

    I have not been to The Blackshop for a while but I ordered my usual Southwestern Salad. Not sure what they left out but it was terrible. The chicken as well was dry any way over cooked. I ate about a third. One of my friends had the soup which she said was good and a Caesar Salad which she could not eat and she had stomach issues after. My third friend had the Harvest Salad which she complained about and was taken off our bill. Totally disappointed with this lunch we were served.

    Nice decor and pleasant service but we waited almost an hour for 3 hamburgers and a sandwich. When the food came the burgers were extremely dry and my colleague was unable to eat his. They did remove the charges for the two mostly uneaten burgers.

    Booked in for a birthday… nothing special was done, which was disappointing. We come here for all our special events and theyve brought us free desert with cute writing in the past, but not today. So that made me sad for my partner whose bday we were celebrating. We also noticed today significantly smaller portions that’s usual. Also disappointing for the price we pay here. Ambiance was lovely. Got one of the best seating in the house. Service was pretty good, a little monotone but good. So yes, the smaller portion sizes and lack of anything done for the birthday celebration was disappointing and abnormal for them.

    Brunch menu was fairly small/limited - options just something simple like eggs/toast were non-existent. Quiche, which I normally love, was average and quite salty. Portions were very small - tiny quiche slice, 5 wedges and a 1/4 cup of "salad" greens. Price was average, but seemed a bit high for our portion sizes, at least. Water options were bottled only - still or sparkling. Fancy spot and got service, but don't think I'd go back based on the food alone.

    We had their feature soup of the day, red pepper…yummy…and the gnocchi and the mushroom rigatoni were absolutely delicious. The cheesecake was ok. Our waitress provided excellent service.

    Nice decor and lighting. The service was friendly, polite and efficient. The food was quite good and the presentation lovely. The portions were bigger than I expected. Allin all, very nice.

    This was a first time at the establishment. Greeted by a very nice hostess as well as Maya was our server and a real friendly professional The overall menu we found to be too spicy for our palate, most items on the menu were described or had a high amount of spice. Unexpectedly even the fingerling potato’s were extremely hot spice. Obviously they are serving a market that is not us, we are in restaurants every week and generally seek Italian or steakhouse. This is not a classified steakhouse, if you can take the spice then go for it. All aspects were very good ambiance and staff but the menu was too far from steakhouseAs an additional note, we did communicate our concerns first no spice on our orders however, a few items came out that did and most of the menu was indicated with some spicier items. My point is if you are looking to avoid, respectfully, this is not the restaurant.
