Black Bull Steak & Seafood Restaurant
Seafood Tower for 1, 2, 3 or 4
Thickly cut and firm, serious steak lovers savor this cut
It’s was good overall
Everything was great!
Great Food and service, prices comparable to other “high-end” steakhouses
Everything was great!
pleasantly surprised/service good/food good/would bring friends/didn’t realize restaurant was so nearby
Food was amazing. We ordered a tomahawk and ribeye for 3 to share. I have to admit the food was great and service was excellent!
The shrimp arrabiata appetizer was very mushy, the calamari was nice and crispy , but had little flavor. The short rib dinner was excellent, as was the sirloin steak. The filet mignon was cooked perfect on the inside but the outside was charred . I don’t tend to complain and didn’t want to embarrass my family. This was our first time here and we won’t be back . Too expensive to have sub par food !!!!
Great service and ambiance.
Great hidden gem in Riverdale. Nice menu and wine list. Wait staff is very attentive. They do have outside dinning. The apps, steaks, and specials are great. Price is reasonable. Very accommidating.
The specials were AMAZING tonight. King crab legs and a dover sole that were so good!!
Great meat, expensive but cooked well. Service was very good never felt rushed. Would repost and try some seafood next time.
Wasnt crowded. All went well until we finished meal then plates sat and sat and sat until we called waiter over for dessert menu. Tartufo was like half cut in slices(kinda a strange) and i was told it was definitely decaf tea however bag tag said regular. I didnt drink it and told waiter. He never offered to take it off bill. I took it off his tip
We like it there so I am being honest so it just keeps getting better
Service was prompt not rushed, staff is very attentive without seeming to hover. Friendly wait staff. Excellent value. Cigar lounge perfect.
We will be returning and recommending to friends
The food never disappoints!!
Black Bull consistently delivers excellent service and quality food. The staff is extraordinarily attentive and the food is served piping hot to your liking. The menu varies and I always struggle to choose between appetizers, dinner and dessert. Never have I been disappointed!! Always a pleasure and wonderful experience dining and Black Bull.
Food was excellent with the exception that the fra Diavlo was not spicy at all
Food was light on flavor. Lobster Mac and cheese was soupy send very little lobster. Mashed potatoes tasted like instant potatoes. Not worth the price paid
A nicely decorated steakhouse serving fresh seafood, pasta and steaks. Our service was impeccable and we went without needing anything. Staff was very attentive.
The Seafood tower is served for 1-6 people but didn’t live up to the quality that other places have. Measuring against Ruth Chris for example. Other appetizers were very good with decent portions.
The Lobster pasta was flavorful but the lobster was minced so small that it wasn’t really the star, should have had more meatiness to impress.
The steak (Strip) was cooked in high heat to produce a nice char, then sliced off the bone on a hot plate. House sauce was a good accompaniment. I’d rather cut my own steak as it tends to lose its juiciness when it is sliced off the bone like that.
Deserts were home made and good but the Apple Strudel was a tad watery from the apples which wilted the pastry leaving much to be desired.
Not a bad experience at all and will return, but not on top of the list.
It feels like a diner with much better - and more expensive - food.
Nice selection of food... Staff more than accommodating and cordial.
Had chicken and veal - all top shelf and well executed. Steaks next time. Crab meat cocktail very good !
Great food. Everyone's plate was wiped clean. One of the best steak places around.
We were charged $75 for an appetizer “special.” I have never seen an app priced that high in 20 years dining out. At the very least, we should have been told at the time of ordering it. I don’t plan to eat there again.
Great food and service. We love coming here.
Went to celebrate a birthday, staff was very friendly and accommodating. Food was good. Overall good experience
This place has amazing food and great service ! Love coming here ! A little expensive but worth it !!!
The food was amazing quality but lacks very bold flavor. Asked for heavy seasoning on fish dish this time and a side of garlic/Butter for veggies and steak. Way better with the extra flavor.
My whole experience there was wonderful. Dinning room was designed to make you feel comfortable and the servers pleasant, and the food great. I would say if you want great steak, this is the place to go,
We ate in the Cigar Lounge and it was fantastic. The food was outstanding and the staff took great care of us.
Love this place. No need to ever make trek to a Peter Lugers. Never had a bad meal there!!
Beautiful Setting and the Food was out of this world! Great portions and wonderful service!
Awesome experience as usual! Great service and great food! This is our go to for special days!
For a Mother’s Day lunch it was great! They were accommodating and food was very good (could be a better Caesar Salad though) Love the velvet chairs!
We enjoyed our evening. Our server was outstanding and very patient. Overall it was good, it missed the mark on the temp & size of porterhouse steak, it had to be sent back. We also thought the side portions were small for the prices.
Food was ok...but if I'm going to pay those prices, I expect great food. Really, the service was the worst thing about the entire evening. Literally,we saw the waiter to take drink order, get food order, and deliver the food. Other than that, if we needed him, we had to first wait to make eye contact and then flag him down. My steak was medium, rather than medium-rare, but went ahead and ate it because he never showed back up to check if food was acceptable. Everyone else would have been long done with their food, by the time I could even find him to tell him. I would not recommend the restaurant, sorry to say.
We were celebrating our twins birthday. I went to the restaurant early to have a bottle of wine decanted and waiting for us. They happily accommodated us and the wine was waiting on the table when we arrived for our reservation. This is just one example of the excellent service we receive every time we dine there. They were able to recommend some new dishes for us to try and the food was superb.
This place got such good reviews so we decided to check it out. Unfortunately, did not live up to the hype. We waited over 30 min when we had a reservation (we were 5 min late but to wait additional 30 isn’t cool). After waiting VERY long for the entrees - The steak was under cooked and overpriced, the mashed potatoes looked like they came from a box....I got the pasta with lobster and it was only OK. Sauce was bland. Calamari was mushy.
For the prices they are charging the service should be top notch as well as the food. We frequent Steak houses in edgewater nj with the same prices and this place does not compare.
One of my favorite places. Complex menus. Great service. I come here for any special occasions
Great find in riverdale!!
Everything was great except the guy serving food with the mask below his nose the entire night. I won’t go back now. Maybe takeout?
Our party of six was celebrating a birthday! The entire evening was excellent from appetizers to dessert. Our waiter and backup staff could not have been a more enjoyable. The food and drinks were outstanding and we will enjoy going back again!
