Great experience overall !!
Never, ever disappoints. A true foodies haunt. Quiet, cozy and contemporary. Try the daily specials, they are special for a reason!
The three course lunch menu for $25 is great value, and was tasty and interesting. Would like to have been able to go in the evening for the tasting menu.
Great Tasting Menu. Can't say enough about that experience. That said, the ambiance is a bit lacking. For the price the service was rushed- we had an 8:30 rez and waited 30mins to be seated. One thing-pet peeve particularly for this price-point. The bathroom was really gross- for a Michelin starred place- come on guys, get it there and clean up a few times a night.
Celebrated my son's 21st birthday here recently and the staff was amazing. They made it extra special by surprising us with delicious tequila shots on the house as well as a special dessert just for my son. The food was wonderful, the service impeccable and they made my son feel very special in a classy and elegant way!
Great overall. Just the tables are a bit too close to one another, too tight.
Less formal than I expect but the food (Tasting Menu) was fantastic! Wine paring was well priced.
Excellent value for money, special occassion - and it didn’t dissappoint! We’ll sit at the bar next time with it’s casually sophisticated feel - just like it’s patrons :-) See you again.
The menu is seasonal but delightful. Each dish is well thought out and was seasoned to perfection. The noise level was loud when we first got in but there were only 1 or 2 seats available at the time we got in, but had cleared through out the meal. Overall a wonderful meal amd night
Past its prime. Riding on its success. Coffee shop food and inattentive service
Its was very good experience. nice food and nice service.
My wife was sick when we visited, and the staff went above and beyond to accommodate and provide attentive service.
Food was creative and outstanding. We enjoyed the appetizers, main course, and the desserts. Staff was helpful and friendly -- made us feel welcome.
This was our second experience at Blackbird and it was just as good as we remembered. Make a splurge and do the tasting with wine pairings - incredible and absolutely worth it!
For a restaurant that carries such a great name, I was relatively disappointed with certain parts of the evening - namely, the service (not including the front door service). Plates such as the pork terrine, wagyu beef, venison sausage and skate were exceptional and jam-packed with strong flavors in every bite. I was not able to taste much of the blue crab, as the cauliflower overpowered the dish. Our waiter was not very tentative and appeared once in a blue moon to check on us; conversely, he was very much present at our neighbor's table. We also did not get the best recommendations or information on the plates. The night ended on a high note with the delicious apple cider donuts.
We had a late prix fixed lunch at Blackbird during restaurant week. The food was excellent, as was the service. We will do this again. Loved it!
My husband and I went for lunch during restaurant week. The food was amazing! Kelly, behind the bar was fantastic.
During the last few weeks we have eaten at several Restaurant week places both in NYC and Chicago. My husband and I agree that Blackbird was the very best of all of them. Our warm shrimp salad was a unique tasty start. My husband enjoyed the duck confit and I the trout. Although we had similar choices at the other highly rated restaurants, the taste was not as great.
Went to Blackbird for the lunch restaurant week special. The food and service were both spectacular! I can not wait to go back.
