Food was good and we had a nice table on the outdoor patio. Recommend!
I really liked eating on the enclosed patio with the fireplace. Our waitress seemed a bit tired and forgetfull. We ordered drinks and my husband had to send his back, it was the oddest color martini, my drink was ok. I ordered a New York strip, but thats not what I received.I called it mystery steak. My husband ordered the spare ribs, they were tough and hard to eat. I loved my appetizer of roasted beets. My husband really enjoyed the squash soup. It was thick and creamy and full of flavor. The dessert was a gluten free brownie sundae. It was ok. We have eaten several times at Old Blinking Light and the food was fresh and perfectly cooked. Maybe this was an off night.
I always love the food and service. Will order take out after Friday!
Wonderful place! The food was delicious and the service was great! Definitely recommend the sweet potato fries and the salads are delicious and big!
The Hostess with OBL are subpar at best. The wait staff if very good.
Live the "winterized" outdoor patio
Every time I go here I order the Truffle Fries - they are amazing! Sometimes they aren't cooked enough but when they are cooked right they are awesome!
Enjoyed a lovely dinner. Sat outside. Beautiful night. Service was great!
very tasty food. great variety. will eat there again
Old Blinking Light is a neighborhood gem. A go to spot for me!
Consistent food and service and a neighborhood gem! Will be back.
We had not been to OBL since before COVID! We are glad they are still open
Enjoyed everything; our waitress was a delight! And food excellent!
Love this place and their bar menu. My wife,sfavorite is the street taco plate...she loves the veggie ones. perfect as a meal for her. I usually get 5e cheeseburger and fries which are great.....Margaritas are perfect.
The food and service were both very good. Nick is very good at offering recommendations on the menu. We had the prime rib sandwich, which was excellent. We opted for the beet salad as our side for a slight up charge (also excellent) because we didn't want the fries, which are fried in duck fat. I am sure they are good but a healthier choice is in our best interest. We will be frequenting this restaurant because everything we have ordered has been delicious. We just would like to see an alternative to the duck fat.
We’ve had Bailey a number of times as our server and love her! So sweet and attentive. As usual, our food was wonderful!
Everything was as expected, excellent! This is our go-to restaurant
Food great, service great. Forgo the advanced reservation. We arrived on time for our reservation and were told we would have to wait. Meanwhile other folks were being seated ahead - seriously doubt all had reservations either. We sat waiting for 20 minutes before being seated.
The server was awful tonight. He never refilled our drinks, didn’t bring silverware. We are regulars and have never seen him but he made it unenjoyable.
The restaurant did a great job of making us feel safe as far as social distancing and all other CDC precautions.
The food was wonderful and the service was great.
Overall experience was great. Our waitress was incredible. Positive, Upbeat, Funny and so prompt! Food was delicious!
Food was honestly not great. Supposed to be a Mexican style restaurant with zero flavor in their mexican food. Ordered the guac and it was so bland i had to load it up with salt and pepper. Also ordered the spicy tortilla soup, and added chicken. Some of the worst soup I’ve ever had. Chicken tasted anything but fresh and I could not tast any spice whatsoever. I probably will not return.
It was good food but the portions were a little small! Good atmosphere though! It seems like their menu is smaller since COVID happened.
The Nats salad with Salmon is so delicious! I get it every time!
Food was reasonably priced. Service was quick and friendly
Service was great drinks were delicious, reasonably priced and the atmosphere was amazing.
Our food was very good however our server failed miserably.
The only complaint was from one dinner that said his "Grilled Beets" that cost $6 extra, were not grilled. He said they tasted like they were just pulled out of a can and placed on his plate. He didn't eat them. I loved my Cobb Salad!!
Very good atmosphere, service was a little slow, food was good.
Good place for a date night not too far from home. Service was friendly and accomodating.
Love this place, drinks and food are always good and the service is great!
It was a bit concerning to have our server wearing a crocheted face mask and no gloves. The other staff were wearing full masks and gloves.
Hostess actually noted that I put patio seating preference on reservation. Stellar experience
We had a wonderful waitress and the food was, as always, fantastic! One of our favorite places to eat. :)
You know, during these difficult times, I try to visit restaurants purposely. I was disappointed tonight in the service, food and overall lack of care we received. Our food was frankly gross. We didn't eat much, the server didn't follow up, and didn't seem surprised when they took away the nearly full plates of food. Sadly, I'll skip this place in the future.
Just love OBL! Great food & great ambiance
One guest’s meal was so overcooked/reheated that it was inedible. Dessert was significantly changed since last ordered (bourbon bread pudding). Very pre-manufactured; bland, and processed.
A food spell next to our table (server spill) sat on the floor, along with a spoon for at least 15 minutes. We finally had to insist it be cleaned up.
Not like any past experience at OBL.
Fantastic Restaurant and would highly recommend. Food was amazing and very quick - great for a business lunch! Staff was friendly and our waiter was amazing!
Great food and service always! The best wine list also
The menu was diverse. The ambience was nice, the food was excellent and service was perfect. The atmosphere was conducive for talking which was nice. It was a great dining experience!
Been coming here for years. Last two visits have been disappointing. Most recent visit my wife was served rare chicken and I was served burned pizza. Will no longer recommend or take out-of-town visitors until things improve.
