Our server was excellent and the food was great. Great experience.
It was so nice to visit with old friends from The Blackshop. Thank you Micheline and Tatiana for your warm welcome and service. Outstanding as we’ve come to expect!
It was my 42nd birthday and I chose to spend it with Zara at the Blackshop and we were not disappointed. The food was great, my steak was a tad undercooked but still a great meal. Zara was our server and she did an absolutely wonderful job. The four of us all had something g different except we all started with their garlic infused Caesar Salad….it’s the one thing I order every time I go. Great supper as usual and we’ll be back! My brother had the lamb and I would definitely try that the next time as it was truly a special dish. Wish I would’ve taken pictures, as the presentation and favours were SPOT ON. Thank you
Made a birthday reservation and they forgot about the birthday. Waiter asked if i wanted bread and never returned with it. Food was good. As far as " fine dining" i expected better service
Happy belated birthday to your girlfriend. Thank you for the feedback about our service, Chris. We have several new staff members, so feedback like this will help us in training and onboarding. If anything is ever not to your liking, we always encourage communicating this to management. We would love to make it up to you and your partner, so please reach out to our management team.
Food as expected. Tasted really good.
Our table for 2 was placed closely between to other larger groups. Our table was the only one in the restaurant without a romantic candle (16th wedding anniversary...traditional theme is Wax). Experiance was fair, nothing to justify a $150 dinner. Likey wont come back or recommend. Service was excellent.
We're happy to hear you enjoyed the food, Dan, but disappointed that we missed the mark in making your 16th wedding anniversary a spectacular experience. We strongly encourage our guests to let their server or management know if something is not to their liking, as human error can occur in a busy restaurant. Should you decide to give Blackshop another chance, we will turn your 3-star experience into a 5!
We went to celebrate my Aunts BD. Our server Was awesome and the food was delicious . We Have ate here numerous times and always have a great meal.
Thank you for coming back to us time and time again, Shawna. Sending a big Happy Birthday to your Aunt.
Great ambience, trendy, no skimping on portion size and attentive staff.
Thank you for the 5-Stars and for sharing your experience
My husband and I went here for ‘date night’. We usually choose Blackshop for their outstanding food and service. We’re never disappointed.
Christine, we are honoured to have you and your husband as our regular guests. See you on your next date night!
Excellent food and good service. 2nd time just as great as the 1st time.
We were glad to have you back for a second time, Kent. Thanks for the review and we'll see you again real soon.
Overall lovely experience, I selected this restaurant for two reasons: as a half way point for the group of friends meeting and because i've been before and loved the food and ambience. Did not disappoint, food was yummy, service was great and a good time had by all. Would recommend as a date night or a fun night out with friends.
We're thrilled to be your go-to restaurant and appreciate your loyalty! Thanks for taking the time to post this review and recommending us to your friends
A wonderful place to celebrate with family and friends.
We're happy to hear you had a great time, Leeann
Wonderful food and great service. We were seated by the fireplace which they put on for a cozy mood. They didn't have garlic bread but because it wasn't busy, the chef went out of their way to make an order for us. The pace was great for when the food came out and the server was attentive. Would have liked a visit from the manager to check in (I personally like that) but overall it was a wonderful experience. They celebrated my birthday by decorating my dessert plate with a message.
Happy Birthday, Yogicha! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. Glad to hear you enjoyed the cozy fireplace and the special birthday message on your dessert plate.
Very nice! Delicious food and lovely patio! Will be back!
Glad you enjoyed our food and patio...we'll see you again real soon!
Enjoyed a lovely evening meal on the heated patio. The service was very attentive even though we were the only party seated in our section for much of the time. Food was hot, well presented and very tasty. My steak was over cooked (I requested Medium but it was more Medium-Well/Well Done) but it was still very tender. A very pleasant meal.
Our heated patio is incredible; we're glad you enjoyed it, Stacey. If, for any reason, your meal is not prepared to your liking, please let your server know, and we'll be more than happy to remake it for you.
The prime rib dinner on Sunday night is delicious and great value. Service was excellent. I was hesitant to try Blackshop because of the logo and the look of the outside of the building. Once we entered the restaurant, it seemed like a different place. The atmosphere was a bit old school but with a modern twist. I would definitely recommend Blackshop.
Our Sunday Prime Rib dinner is a customer favourite; we're so happy to hear you enjoyed it. We like the way you described our atmosphere, "old school with a modern twist." Spot on!!!
Really like this restaurant. Great service, food and ambience! Already looking to book my next visit but OpenTable won't allow so far in advance.
It was a pleasure serving you on Thanksgiving, Isabel. Whenever you're back in town, just give us a call or book on OpenTable a few days in advance. See you soon!
This is great location for a business or casual lunch or dinner.
We appreciate the 5-star review and comments, Tim
Excellent always the best
We think you're the best, Sharon! Thanks for the review
I was disappointed becouse the item I wanted was taken off the menu earlier that same day. I found the scallops under cooked. They tasted good. The best part was the dessert and coffee.
Our menu items change from time to time to keep things fresh and seasonal, but we're sorry to hear you missed out on what you came in for, Colly. Next time, ask your server, and perhaps our Chefs will have the necessary ingredients on hand to make you an off-menu item.
Great dinner as always!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We aim to please, Brian! Thanks for leaving a review
Asked for a quiet space. Was there with my mom who is in her 80’s.
Seating wasn’t great even though the restaurant was not busy when we got there.
Person at the door wasn’t very friendly and gave off a rather impatient air.
Scrambled eggs were very good, steak was cooked very well but the cut wasn’t so great. First latte was warm but not hot. Our server was good.
Overall not a bad experience but not the kind that necessarily makes you want to return soon.
We're sorry to hear we missed the mark on giving you and your Mother a 5-star brunch experience. If for any reason a table or menu item is not to your liking, please let your server or a manager know, and we will make everything right. Hope to see you back soon.
The meal was good and the service was prompt and attentive. Distancing was good as well.
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and experience with the OpenTable community and us, Ross.
Took my Mom out for a Birthday dinner. We are not a picky eaters at all. My Moms lobster pasta dinner was flavorless and had large chunks of cheese. My fish was extreamly overpowered by garlic but somehow flavorless at the same time. Some sort of purple blobs on the plate with a weird texture and taste. Despite not finishing the $47 very small portion fish plate i woke up in the morning with the smell of garlic and fish permiating from my skin. It was horrible. On a positive note our waitress was great.
Thank you for the feedback, Beverly. Our goal is to make every meal consistently tasty for most palates, but if, for any reason, something is not to your liking, please let your server or manager know. We will be more than happy to remake the item or prepare something else for you and your table.
The food I received was unfavourably bland. For the dish that was hailed to be their “signature” by our server, I was disappointed by the lack of flavour.
Our signature dishes tend to maintain a very consistent flavour profile over time, but if we missed the mark on your order, please let your server know, and we will remake the dish for you or prepare something else to your liking. Thank you for the feedback.
Food was good and service was good. Seemed pricey for what we ate. Do not go out often so maybe it was reasonable.
Thank you for the feedback. It's nice to go out and treat yourself once in a while; we're glad you were happy with the food and service
Fantastic spot for a special occasion or for a nice meal out.
Thanks, Liam. We appreciate the 5-star review
I found the portions very small for the price. I went home hungry!
The lobster bisque was not what I was expecting. The flavour and seasoning felt more like a fall soup rather than the smooth bisque I was expecting.
The ambiance of a neighbour smoking pot near the patio wasn't great, but I do realize there is little you can do about that.
Thank you for the feedback about the lobster bisque, JB. We try to make our menu items fit most palates but if something is not to your liking, please let your server know and we can remake it or replace with another dish.
Awesome tasting food, great service and a not very noisy atmosphere. We would definitely return.
Awesome review, Lena! Can't wait to have you back!!!
Always love coming here. The food is great, the service is awesome and I love the ambience. It's a family favourite for us.
We appreciate the continued support, Heather. We look forward to serving you and your family again real soon.
Great food and service. Mushroom rigatoni was delicious
Thank you for the review, Marty! The mushroom rigatoni is a customer favourite, and we're glad you enjoyed it.
First 2 beer choices I asked for were not available. Then the wine I picked was not available. Dinner was a disappointment. Service and venue were great.
Thank you for the feedback about our drink menu and availability. We do our best to keep a full supply of alcohol choices on hand, but on rare occasions, we may run out, or there may be a delay from our suppliers. If we're in short supply of something, we usually replenish within a few hours and rarely run entirely out of popular items.
Everything was top drawer. Speed, Service, Food quality, noise levels. Everything was terrific. It is my go to restaurant for business meetings in Cambridge.
We love sharing reviews like this with our entire staff; it's a complete team effort day in and day out. Whether you come in for an intimate dinner or another business meeting, we look forward to seeing you again soon, John. Thanks for taking the time to share your experience.
Great atmosphere and wait staff were phenomenal. Food was all tasty great evening out.
We're so happy to hear you had a great evening out and enjoyed the food, Gina. We appreciate the kind words regarding our staff. Hope to see you soon!
Salmon meal was great. The pork belly wasn't what was expected. Would not order again
We're thrilled you enjoyed our salmon; it is a customer favourite! If the pork belly, or any menu item for that matter, is not to your liking, please let the server know next time, and we will replace it with something else. Thank you for the review
Blackshop never disappoints; great food and service.
Thank you for your continued support!
Excellent food sorry we wont be able to return. Must have passports after next tues.
There's always our heated patio, Vicki. Hope to see you again real soon
Every meal I have at Black Shop never disappoints. The food and the experience is always outstanding. I tried a new drink called the Dreamcatcher and it was absolutely amazing! Beyond my expectations! Great service by Michaela and great food. Thanks for the fabulous lunch!!!
Michaela is fantastic! Thank you for the kind words, and we're thrilled to hear you discovered the magnificent drink known as the Dreamcatcher. We are looking forward to serving you soon, Gail.
Amazing food and ambiance. Would recommend and will be back.
Thank you for taking the time to post this review, EVAL. We're looking forward to having you back!
Our server Zhara was great!
We think Zhara is great too! We made sure to pass along this message. Thanks, Samantha
Had a wonderful time. Staff were very friendly and made my partner and I feel very special on our anniversary. Food was very delicious and will definitely recommend.
Happy belated anniversary! Thank you for the kind words and recommendation
