I went there on a Thursday and Saturday. Thursday was great, the waitress Grace told of specials and did a great job. I went back on Saturday which was a completely different experience. The waiter, not sure of his name bc he never introduced himself, never really stood at the table, instead was always walking by in the same way a flight attendant would or a server at a busy diner.

The main reason I went back was for the muscles. After ordering drinks etc I placed the order for the muscles but they were out, that should have been mentioned in the beginning. Then after eating other apps I placed an order for dinner. Now they were out of one of the three sides that I wanted.

Later the owner came over (I believe he was going to every table to ask about how they feel about indoor dining). I told him that I was disappointed that they were out of muscles which was the entire reason I came back. He responded with a description of their air filtration system.

Even though I ordered the the main dish after the appetizer arrived, the main dish arrived before they cleared the appetizer dishes, not bc the food came out too fast but bc they never cleared the plates. They also never cleared the dinner plates.

Not that I was looking for anything for free but they should have done something since they were out of the food I ordered.

In Sum:
Terrible service: not sure if the server is really a server (no special explanation, no mention of sold out food, not attentive, no clearing of plates).
Owner: should have been more appreciative in words or in something comped that I returned two days later for something they don’t have and was the sole reason I returned.

I was so excited about finding a new local restaurant but now I won’t return.

Great place for a birthday dinner. We loved the fig pizza. And we had a wonderful watermelon and feta salad, with incredibly sweet melon. And great drinks.

I’ve eaten at Blackbarn many times in the past. This was (unfortunately) the worst meal I’ve had there, but it wasn’t bad. Chicken sandwich tried to do too much with lots of flavors fighting against each other (spicy mayo, peppers, avocado mash, cheese). The chicken itself was lacking while the bread was okay. We had to wait for 15 minutes past our reservation time because they were running behind. I typically love this place, though.

Food was excellent..
but as it was brunch some kind of toast or muffin was in order given the cost. As it was out doors, we did hear the occasional car on 26th Street. Service was efficient and mannerly.

5 stars for the phenomenal food, -2 stars for the dismal service. Everyone was very friendly, however our waiter was scarcely found and we had to ask for very basic things that were taking extended amounts of time, i.e. water, the check, etc. Had an issue with dirty glassware. 1pm reservation, was not seated until 1:20, despite larger groups with later reservations being seated first. If the service and timeliness could be improved, this place would be five stars all around.

Food was fantastic. From the bar snacks to the chicken entree. The maitre d staff was awful. Rude and un-accommodating. The waiter was clearly over burdened so the drinks were slow and the food delivery was slow.

The hostess was super helpful with accommodating my 2 young children in the main dining room, adding to our party, and moving up our reservation per my request for a Saturday brunch. Service is fantastic and the food is great as well.

Just another super terrific Sunday brunch
We had omelette and eggs Benedict which were yummy but that’s just the beginning
The hostesses are personable and caring, visiting the table to be sure all is good And our server was attentive and friendly
Best of all the Jazz/blues. And make the brunch special
Where else can you go with such a great combo
And the place is full of young families
Kids are all over the place but the layout makes It easy for the parents and nice fir us without kids
Love this place

Went to eat here the other night with my boyfriend. Great location and great looking restaurant. We were so excited to have dinner here since my boyfriend had been 3 years prior and raved about it. I think the chef/ownership must have changed since, the food was good but a bit overpriced for the quality. Happy we went on a Sunday when it was half off all wines!
