Chalkboard was a fun, eclectic place for dinner. The food was good - but not great. We ordered the chicory salad which was warm with butternut squash & a lot of vinegar. We had ordered butternut squash next but canceled that & substituted the sunchokes. They were ok. We had the shrimp with pasta. The pasta was more like a German spaetzle, rather than the pasta I'm accustomed to having. It was fair. We also ordered the scallops, which were very good. I've eaten in tapas restaurants many times & this is the first time I felt like the different courses didn't complement each other at all. We loved the overall feel of the restaurant. We won't be going back.
Food was good, service was friendly and fast. I had forgotten that the concept is shared plates and I was in the mood for a meal.
I didn't the food at all. It was too salty generally and didn't really taste good and it was too expensive for the value
This was our first experience at Chalkboard and what a find. This was a special business dinner enjoyed by everyone. We chose to do a tasting menu so were able to enjoy a wide variety of menu items, each one more delicious than last. A very nice wine menu as well. Highly recommend Chalkboard for any occasion.
Chalkboard came highly recommended to our group. The restaurant was nicely decorated, the service was good, and the food was sadly fair. I have never left a bad review, however we were very disappointed in the fishy and tangy squid ink pasta and the overcooked sliders. None of the other dishes left us wanting for more.
Very good food and we had excellent service. The ice cream for dessert was excellent, but the mud pie was not my best pick of the night. It was more of a pudding dish. Overall, very good.
It was very noisy and very hard to hear my spouse. The food is served in small portions to share. If you have never eaten like this I would try it because it is a great way to eat and try a different variety of food.
It is a shame it was so noisy I am not so sure I would recommend.
Small plates design. Had Pork Belly Biscuits, fig bread salad, and short rib sugo with parpadelle. All very good. Waiter helpful but not intrusive. Wines were great.
Wait staff was very helpful and accommodating Food and wine was delicious!
Amazing! The braised lentils were amazing. Wine and cocktail options great!
