Our server Nick was excellent....the food was excellent....the atmosphere was excellent... my experience was excellent....my husband and I will definitely return. OVERALL EXPERIENCE....EXCELLENT!
String beans were’t good. Had to remind to waiter about drink order. Bread could be improved but was good enough. For a dimly lit restaurant it was quite noisy. Other than that, really good meal at a really nice place. Don’t mind paying a fortune, but it kind of should be perfect don’t you think? BTW, they took the string beans off the bill. And the entrees, appetizers and desserts were perfect! Get the banana cream pie!!!
Although it was a little loud and you are seated very closely to the next table, the food was delicious and the service was impeccable.
Service was far from what the check was. Seated at 9, 45 minutes until an appetizer. Another 40 minutes until the entree. When everything was placed together.
Birthday was awesome
Best filet I have ever eaten. Even better than Coach Grill outside Boston, and definitely better than Ruth's or Morton's. Expensive, but worth the treat. Fantastic waiter. A little noisey at first with Friday night Happy Hour, but calmed down by 6:00 PM. We will return.
Took my wife there in Valentine's day, I had a great time, ordered sea bass which was a descent amount of money but I received probably the smallest piece of sea bass. Was unable to enjoy the food. The manager did apologize for the inconvenience. Overall place is descent.
I made reservations 2 1/2 weeks prior to Valentine’s Day. When we arrived we had to wait an extra 20 minutes. At the table we never received our glass of wine only to find out that the couple squeezed in to the table next to us had received our glass of wine and nobody spoke up about it. We never received our steak sauce. The steak I ordered was supposed to be medium well. It came over 45 minutes later as rare. The valet could not find our vehicle and was screaming across the parking lot asking what color it was… as we frequent this restaurant often we probably will be coming back as I believe this was a mishap due to the Valentine’s Day crowds.
We dined here on Valentine's day to celebrate a birthday. Was obviously very crowded, so crowded! I assume they added extra tables for the holiday. We were squished in a row of tables a mile long it seemed. Not particularly romantic! Service was great, attentive, but not annoying. Food was very good. No steaks for us this night, though I can say by the looks of the sizzling rib eye next to us, if I were to return I would definitely get that! I had the scallop dish. Perfectly cooked! But the butternut squash puree was too thin or something and I couldn't pick it up with my fork. The risotto was good, not great. He had the lobster tail. Again, perfectly cooked! With some really good mashed potato that I enjoyed. Starters were a delicious crabcake and shrimp cocktail, both delicious. Had cocktails, too. And they gave a birthday dessert, on the house! I recommend NOT going on a holiday lol. It was like Grand Central, not a place for a calm, romantic dinner. I assume it's better on a regular night. I feel though the food and service was awesome, too many people squished in together made it less of an experience, considering the price! I might try again.
Our dinner on Valentine's Day did not disappoint. We have dined there before during a less busy time and found the service and the food to be exceptional, a nice surprise considering the large crowd also celebrating the occasion. There were two waiters assigned to our table, both were very attentive and knowledgeable of the items on and off the menu. I wish I could remember their names because each deserves to be recognized for their unwavering dedication to making our evening an enjoyable one. We definitely will recommend Blackstone to our friends and family with confidence that they will experience the same level of satisfaction as we did.
I'm not the type to write a bad review especially about one of my favorite restaurants on Long Island. However my wife & I went for Valentines Day & although the waiter service was excellent, we waited for our dinner 1.5 hours afters receiving our appetizer. In addition to the extremely long wait, my wife's 24 oz. $68.00 bone in ribeye (sliced before making it to our table) consisted of (4) strips of meat half inch thick & 3 inches long. Not what we were accustomed to from Blackstones. I will probably visit the restaurant again but NEVER on a holiday. They added all these extra tables to accommodate the crowds but clearly could not handle the extra diners. Kitchen was very backed up & portions not like any of my previous visits. My wife & I were very disappointed by our restaurant choice that night!!
Everything was excellent, but it was extremely expensive.
7th Valentine’s Day dinner with my wife. First time here and was amazing. Compared to the other 6 vday dinners, Blackstone was on top.
Valentines day is always tricky when booking a nice date. You have to find the right restaurant and also aim to not be rushed out because they have to turn so many reservations into tables. We booked Blackstone because we've always enjoyed the food - and although a little pricey - the service you get is often unparalleled. Given we normally have a good experience, it should be noted that our Valentines day was a GREAT experience.
We had the pleasure of sitting with Chan and Anna and honestly it couldn't have been much better. Chan built our meal for us, we didn't even really think on it.. We told him what our interests were and he started us off with a really amazing Sushi Roll and then we went to the next course of a Tomahawk cooked to perfection and sliced for us, then we got a few sides. All of this was paired with a really great few drinks, the vday special was great for my lady and I was having some kind of Green Apple Mule.. All and all the food and drinks were tremendous.. but what really stuck out is that Chan paced our meal and never made us feel rushed, and Anna and Chan as a duo were unmatched.
We will be back, but now we know we need the dynamic duo to truly enjoy the experience. Thanks Chan and Anna - our meal and Valentines day was made by you two!
Celebrating Valentine’s Day with my wife thoroughly enjoyed it.. it’s always a great experience and the food is always amazing still my favorite restaurant on LI
Went for early seating on Valentine’s Day and had a great experience. Foos was awesome and friendly waiter
Was a wonderful time and enjoy the food.
John, our waiter, was amazing. Very polite and personable. I ordered scallop risotto and my husband ordered the bone in rib steak, both cooked to perfection.
Awesome service and great food. Would def go again!
Was our second time attending this restaurant
Was as good as the first .. 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
Terrific meal and service! The Kale and Avocado salad was the best salad I’ve eaten in my life. Really fantastic steak, prepared Pittsburgh style was delicious! Looking forward to going back soon!
The appetizers we ordered came out very fast It took a 1 hr and 45 mins for dinner to come out after the appetizers. Service was great. Seemed like the kitchen was backed up.
We took advantage of the Sunday night Surf and Turf special at Blackstone. Overall a very enjoyable evening and the food was very good. The lobster portion was really quite nice. The filet mignon was not an overly generous portion but it was tasty. The appetizers were disappointing in the selections. There was very little tuna in the spicy tuna roll and the Caesar salad did not even have one croton or shaved parmesan. the desserts that we had ice cream and sorbet were generous portions. The overall dessert selections were unimaginative. The wine prices at this restaurant are way too high. They could be more reasonable on this considering the volumes they drive. I have paid $100 less in some cases for some of the Cabernets they have on their wine list. Overall the service was very good.
Everything went well. Only issue was they kept coming by to ask how was everything?
Celebrated Cathy's birthday here and as always the food and service was excellent. We always come here for special occasions and have never been disappointed.
Always a terrific meal at Blackstone. Service is great, and tho my steak came back a little undercooked, they brought it back with no issues and it came out perfect.
Santo and Anna made our first dining experience at Blackstone comfortable. Awesome service and hospitality.
Filet Mignon extremely tender and Pork Chops were the best ever. Looking forward to a return visit.
Excellent service, food and atmosphere. Highly recommend.
Room is noisy but able to hear my wife.
I would warn any friend about price range.
6 people for dinner, great food, unannounced wine special, great presentation. Got a bunch of apps, sliders, crunchy shrimp and sushi. All were great . John Z was a great server and we had a blast. Staying in Melville for an event and found this place on open table and now I’m looking for another excuse to go back. Not cheap but worth every penny
The porterhouse was tough. Disappointing for a hundred dollar steak. I won’t be back.
Would have given them a higher rating but, after leaving a note that it was my wife’s 50th birthday when I made the reservation, the special occasion was never acknowledged. Pretty disappointing for such a highly rated restaurant
My friend and I met at our usual spot at Blackstone Steakhouse to catch up... to no surprise nothing short of excellent waitstaff, attentive and always ensuring we were good. Manager came by to say hello & check in on us as well.
We split the kani & avocado salad that had cucumber, masago, tempura crunch with a side of creamy sriracha dressing that was a nice addition to the salad.
For entree, my friend had a vegetarian roll which the sushi chef puts together for you with various veggies or you can recommend what you want inside the roll. I had the special roll which was shrimp tempura, crab, avocado, spicy mayo. Another favorite specialty roll to add to my list!
Everything was great.. my only comment is I paid extra for truffle oil and when asked to wrap my remaining food, I was very adamant about wrapping it and it was forgotten. Was very upset when I got home and went for seconds.
Best steaks, amazing sushi! Service was excellent
Way WAY to expensive!!! Way WAY to expensive!!! Way WAY to expensive!!! Way WAY to expensive!!! Way WAY to expensive!!!
The food was excellent. Service was good. Too many tables packed into the space. Wait staff did not have enough room to maneuver around tables.
Food and service was great just a little pricey for us.
It is apparent They can't cook the food the way it was ordered when you're paying high prices like in this establishment everything should be perfect unfortunately it never is
Food was phenomenal, service was excellent, always a great night!
