Excellent food and great service
Great to have an enjoyable evening with our son and his girlfriend. Pleasant place to have a nice meal.
Reserved table for 2
Arrived at location, host brought us to a cozy location in the restaurant (5/5)
Waitress arrived, noted drinks and was professional but lacked social interaction, didn't feel welcomed (2/5)
Drinks arrived & waitress took order for main meal (didn't order any appetizer's but was offered) (4/5)
1/2 litre of their selection wines averaging $30
Approximately 35-40mins before food had arrived
Excited, I ordered the Salmon - Priced at $34 , it came with a savory sauce, some type of rice & other little things, the salmon looked like a piece of salmon that would cost about $6 at the grocery store. Plate should have had more salmon, slightly disappointed by the lack of salmon on the plate, still hungry & ended up eating off my partners plate. (1/5) Salmon was luke warm , around the outside & warm on the inside but not hot, the food underneath was cold/luke warm.
Very disappointed for the cost of the salmon.
Presentation was nice but lacked a real meal for $34 , meal looked & tasted like it was worth about $13
My partner ordered chicken breast approx $26 , meal was delicious, more flavorful & had more quantity than the salmon order, was also warm to touch/hot.
waitress came back and asked how meal was halfway through my plate, I responded it was good. (not wanting to upset the waitress)
Still hungry after paying $34 for the dish, I started eating off my partners plate, the waitress did not say ANYTHING (1/5) , she most time refilled our drinks but didn't say much, there was a huge lack of social interaction with the waitress which was very disappointing. (2/5)
We ordered dessert , it was $9, a little pricey for the amount of dessert that was presented, the taste & presentation was perfect. (4/5) Price could have been better.
Overall, it was a good for a special occasion, not sure if I would go back considering the prices were a little bit ridiculous.
Still tipped 15% (Should have tipped 5%)
Overall experience 3/5
- Wine list was extensive
- Scallops were undercooked
- Steak was ordered medium rare but came medium/well
- Creme brulee was delicious
The Food was Very Good. Two disappointments would be how noisy it was in the Restaurant and the Coffee tasted like Hot Flavoured Dishwater.
I've taken my wife a couple times to Blackshop and generally it was great. But I felt this Valentines menu fell short. The food tasted great but portions seem smaller than usual. Not sure if it was because its a Valentines menu and they were so busy they went will smaller sizes. But my main issue was the incredibly intoxicated lady beside us swearing like a trucker and the servers not doing anything about it. I suppose I should have talked to a manager but they were right beside us I didn't want them to say anything to us. Even our server said he knew she was wasted but yet nothing was done. I don't feel like we will be returning for another visit.
We always have a great dining experience at the Blackshop. Very friendly staff, great food, and great atmosphere.
The food was OK, my mashed potatoes were cold. We have certainly had better meals at this place in the past.
We had a great dinner, and a seat by the fireplace. Very nice. The service was a bit slow, but pleasant.
We came to celebrate a friend's birthday and were not disappointed with the menu choices nor the wine list (his favourite). The service was great......the quiet family dining room was intimate and the surprise birthday dessert was delicious and not expected. Thanks for a lovely evening.
