Everything was excellent and the cleanliness is 5 star.
Great food and service. Our waitress was very helpful, attentive and friendly. The specials of the day were provided along with the regular items on the menu. Food was provided at appropriate timings in between appetizers and entree. A very enjoyable experience.
Good like it always is
excellent food and ambiance. I will be returning with my entire sales team for a dinner.
We really enjoyed ourselves, great food, courteous service
Food portion for the dinner size Cesar salad and chicken small . Food very slow coming out. Waiter not very attentive.
Staff provided excellent service and did not rush us. Wine pairing suggestion was excellent.
Everything was excellent- perfect service! Truly the best place in town for business lunches!
Another great meal at The Blackshop. The daily features offered an excellent selection.
The service was outstanding, as usual. John and his team continue to offer excellent food and service.
Always a great dining experience!
Like the small desert options. Nice to have seasonal options. Would be nice to have small portions for seniors.
Somewhat disappointed with the quality of the food this time around. 4 meals, 2 were excellent and the other 2 not so. Soup was too spicy, which we probably should've been made aware of , and an omelette that needed to be warmer. Realizing that it won't be hot when arriving at the table, but it should've been more than luke warm.
Seafood entrees were outstanding.
This was the fourth time visiting, and we'll still return. If we're dissatisfied, we'll just return our meals to the kitchen.
We were at Blackshop for a special birthday. We were very pleased with the food and the service provided by Matteo that nite. We will be back this weekend for another special dinner. We look forward to another wonderful evening.
The server we had was amazing. He provided the best service I've ever had at a restaurant. The food was amazing and that being said we'll definitely be back.
Always use Blackshop for business lunch it’s perfect!
Great experience went there with my wife for her birthday dinner our server was awesome the food was great and there was no rush to get us out. The pace between plates was very good. Highly recommend.
I and my family have been patrons of The Blackshop for close to 40 years, which attests to our liking for this fine establishment. Ad multos annos.
Always meets my expectations. Great staff, food and ambience.
This has always been a favorite spot for my wife and I. This experience we felt the waiting staff to be average and not as friendly as usual. The appetizer was cold when it shouldnt have been and parts of our main dishes were different temperatures but did taste very good. We will return but this was not our best meal at this location.
I have been to Blackshop Restauranr approximately 20 times. Always excellent service. Consistently great food except for a single experience and when brought to their attention they rectified it. Highly recommended
Excellent food and great waitress
Looks forward to returning
We have come to Black shop many times before. We will more than likely come back, just not on a set menu evening. The service and atmosphere was pleasant. The food however lacked flavor and was hardly warm. I ordered the chicken, my husband the beef tenderloin. His beef came off the grill at a medium. Maybe next time come off at medium rare, this gives an opportunity to cook it further for guests who wish, but also do not over cook it for other. The chicken was very bland, and the red pepper puree had zero taste. Very disappointing for the 55 Dollar price point attached. Our server Jana however was great. I also recieved an email the following day stating we did not attend our reservation. This was clarified after I responded, but the effort to use your program properly would eliminate the frustration on both ends.
Valentine's Day so very busy, but service was good and food was excellent. Dining room was full which resulted in a rather noisy environment. Overall a very good experience, but price is a little on the high side based on the ambience.
In general everything was good. From the food to the atmosphere and the service was excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an above average experience.
Absolutely perfect. Delicious food, excellent service and intimate setting. Hard to believe the restaurant was so big. Couldn’t hear people at the next table and we were able to have meaningful conversations without whispering or talking above normal volumes
Excellent service. Delicious food. Beautifully decorated.
Had a wonderful dinner!
Delicious food and outstanding service! We look forward to our next visit!
It was perfect- Alison is always amazing!
The food and the service was excellent. Nice to sit by the fire and enjoy a quiet meal
One of our ‘first date’ spots...7 1/2 yrs ago. We were back to ‘keep it alive’. 😉. The Food is always great. Our server, Michelle was exceptional. We’ll definitely be back. One small note...the chairs in the lounge area by the fire place could use a ‘sprucing up’.
A very pleasant surprise. We stopped in for lunch and the food was great. And very reasonably priced. Lovely ambiance and very attentive service. Would recommend to anyone.
Excellent value for the cost. Winter special was a great deal. Food was excellent. Really friendly and efficient service.
We were there for our Anniversary and Michelle made it amazing. The food was great and the service was impeccable. Thanks to all who made the evening special.
As always, the Blackshop delivered on all fronts. Food was delicious, staff friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was so cosy. This is our favourite place to eat for special occasions as well as just because.
Good service. Entres are very expensive.
Good for lunch and dinner.
A lovely dining experience in an atmosphere that allowed for pleasant conversation. Of course the food was sooo good... we ate tooo much!
An error was made in specific food allergy. It was addressed but caused set back in our dining experience.
Excellent service and amazing food. Will definitely be back again.
