Fantastic as usual...love this restaurant. We go there often. Great food and service. Never disappointed
great staff, great food - especially the new summer menu
Limited but exceptional menu - interesting use of local produce alongside superbly prepared meats. Attention to detail was excellent. Service was top-notch, and the acknowledgement of the anniversary being celebrated was tasteful and low-key, just the right touch. Would not hesitate to go again to celebrate an important occasion.
The food and service were excellent. Where we were seated (probably due to Covid-19 measures) was okay but not the most ambient location. Overall, a good restaurant and an enjoyable night out, although prices are on the high side.
Incredible meal! We both opted for the dinner feature which was a Wagyu ribeye, twice-baked potato and asparagus - unbelievably delicious and cooked to perfection. We also shared the bacon and scallops and Caesar salad which are two of our usual favourites. So delicious and Max was an excellent server too! Can’t wait to come back :)
Food was delicious. Service was great. This was our first business lunch in over 18 months and Blackshop did not disappoint.
The staff is always so kind and friendly. They always put an allergy friendly meal together for me that is a great experience.
I have been a regular Customer of The Blackshop for many years and I was supremely disappointed with my recent visit. My parents were in from out of town for their 54th Wedding Anniversary so I decided to take them to The Blackshop for dinner. I was very disappointed to see that the menu was significantly changed and scaled back with very limited options for entrees as well as sides for Dinner. In addition to that, my Dad ordered his steak Medium rare, however it was brought to him cooked extremely rare with blood pouring from it. We tried to flag our waitress down for almost 15 minutes before we were able to do so and she agreed that his steak was very under-cooked. About 10 minutes later, my Dad received a second steak and it was cooked closer to medium rare but still was far from cooked well. My Dad ate the steak not wanting to send it back as well however it was not cooked to his liking. Our waitress did not even wait to see if the steak was cooked to my Dad's liking. At the completion of our meal after telling our waitress that we were ready to leave, we waited over 20 minutes for her to bring us our bill despite being the last people in the restaurant. In the end a very disappointing visit to The Blackshop and it is doubtful that I will be back without being offered some form of restitution or compensation to do so. Best Regards.
Celebrating our 26th Anniversary. The day was perfect and we were comfortable throughout the entire meal. Our waitress Michaela was bubbly and efficient (she had said she was fairly new, and for her helper, it was his first day!) and we were so impressed with the speed (and deliciousness) of the meals! Third or fourth time visiting, but first timers alone! Wishing you all continued success!
Very pleasant and friendly atmosphere! Food was delicious!
Restaurant was quiet- perfect to catch up with an old friend and celebrate a birthday in style. Thank you!
Excellent lunch- wonderful food and great service, lots of fun
We've been coming to the BlackShop from Guelph for many years now and have yet to be disappointed (worth the drive). The food, service and ambiance are excellent and reasonably priced. Recommended!
Always great service, patio is lovely. Would be nice to have their full menu back, some selection is limited. Overall, highly recommend.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We will be rolling out some new items, as well as some old favorites on Wednesday July 28 2021. Please join us for your next night out. If you have any questions, please let us know.
The serving is just too small for the price. The service was good though.
The food was exceptionally delicious and the service was impeccable. Highly recommend The Blackshop.
"I love the relaxed feel of this place
It was our 12 year anniversary, we were seated under the tent - only thing that would’ve made it better would’ve been a heater in there.
Other than that the food and drinks were delicious!
Was expecting a more comprehensive menu, and the portions were on the smaller side. Tasty, don’t get me wrong, but left feeling underwhelmed.
The lobster Mac and cheese was amazing. Great wine selection. We also had oysters for appetizers and cheesecake for dessert and they were superb. Overall a great experience and will be going back.
This is the first time that we've been to the Blackshop and we loved everything about it. The food was amazing and so was the service. We'll be back!!!
Always a great location
Dinner on patio area due to COVID restrictions. Very attractive area. Excellent meal.
Excellent food, but I wish there was little more on the menu. Great service.
Chef Jessie outdid herself with the smoked salmon!!! Outstanding dinning.
Casual Elegant outdoor dining. Fresh and very tasty food delivered quickly to your table. Friendly professional servers. The Blackshop is our go-to restaurant in Cambridge.
Very nice upscale restaurant. Food is excellent. Wine choice also excellent. Wait staff couldn’t do enough for us and were very friendly. We will certainly be back.
First time on a patio since the beginning of the pandemic. I felt completely safe.
The atmosphere was great. Having the large umbrellas over the tables was great. The staff was great considering I am hard of hearing. The food and drinks were great. Hopefully, the masks will go away. My friend filled in the blanks for me when I could not get the words as I usually lip-read.
Had a lovely lunch. Waitress Andrea was excellent. Steak excellent. Chicken Ceasar salad and soup average. Cocktail and selection of craft beer excellent. Lovely ambiance. Menu pricy relative to quality of food. Overall a good experience. Would go again.
Never disappoints! Always outstanding food & service.
They’ve done “patio” right with ample shade/umbrella coverage! Great food and service and quality and price are superior to other steakhouse chains. We love Blackshop!
Our server was impersonal (like everything she said was scripted). The food was NOT good. My husband got artic char, and although the fish was ok, the accompaniment was bland and tasteless. A friend and I got the boar belly. It was approximately 2”x3” square and was absolutely nothing but fat. Zero meat whatsoever. We only ate half. It was served with one slice of sweet potato and some wilted greens. I had to eat elsewhere afterwards as we were still hungry. The server didn’t even ask why we had left half of our already VERY small portion of food on our plate! This was a disappointment to all of us, especially considering we had been to this spot a couple years ago and enjoyed it very much! We travelled 2 hours from home to go to this place because of that fond memory. Sadly, I don’t think we would return after this experience.
A lovely place to eat and the service was excellent. My primary complaint is the Thai Chicken my husband and I ordered. Personally, I feel that the dish would have been much better if the chicken were not battered and fried. Just my preference. My biggest issue, though, is the amount of chicken that was included in an entrée that cost $26. The meal itself was not overly large but had there been more meat, I might have felt differently but considering the price and the amount of chicken we got, I was disappointed.
Food was wonderful with big portions.
Thr server was very friendly and attentive.
Birthday dinner.. was afraid to go out because of Covid. Felt safe and things were handled properly. I do hope all staff are vaccinated
Food was wonderful as always.
Good all the way around! Always a good restaurant experience...
Great food and service, as always. The Menu is a bit reduced due to COVID, but still delicious, as always. They are always so good at accommodating our children, which is lovely for a restaurant that is a bit higher-end (great high-chairs, coloring, kindness).
