Love the small plates, especially the tomato peach salad with delicate fennel fronds and the diver scallops. Excellent sauces. And the donuts were delicious--they tasted like zeppoli!
Food and service was excellent, but did not care for the corn creme brûlée. Great overall dining experience. Will definitely go back to try other items on the menu.
The two of us split 5 small dishes and each one was perfect. We had the meatballs (outstanding) and the arancini which were incredible. We also had a tomato peach salad which was like summer in a bowl as well as a corn ravioli and perfectly cooked bass. I can’t say enough about the food.
Nice place to eat. Tables close together with little privacy. Pricing in line.
The good news. Extremely creative creasing artfully presented. Special kudos to the arancina balls, heirloom tomato and burrato salad and brisket and short rib burgers. The bad news: parking impossible, lighting minimal (I mean VERY dark) and very uncomfortable chairs and banquettes. The creative cocktails are described well but did not excite me enough to order one, but a simple vodka Gibson order arrived as a gimlet because “we were out of onions”. And they did not have decent martini glasses. And a slender pour of average wine for $14 in that environment is outrageous. The creative chef deserves better surroundings.
The food was fresh and delicious
The server was extremely knowledgeable
We had small plates and each one was awesome
Exactly what I was hoping for having read so many reviews and recommendations..from the kind welcome upon arrival ,Frank, the passionate recommendations of the server, Eddie, and the 4 plates we shared, thank you chef, were phenomenal! Such a neat treat for a mid week celebration!
2nd visit to this establishment in 6 months.
My 1st visit the internet went down and they could not process my credit card. They asked me to wait and after 25 minutes of sitting and waiting I told them to comp my meal or write my card number down and charge it later. They finally agreed. Honestly they should have bought a drink or appetizer for making us wait.
Last visit we (6 people) were 20 minutes late for our reservation, totally our fault. We should have called. We sat at the bar and ordered some drinks and appetizers while we waited for a table. They continued to seat people, after about 30 minutes staff approached us and asked if we still were waiting for a table, which we relied yes. Seems they forgot about us and continued to seat people. Again things happen, but they let us pay for what we ordered and go to another restaurant with a sour taste in our mouth. Poor customer service. Instead of buying a round and letting us know they were sorry, they let 6 adults walk out to never return! Oh well Snaps took great care of us.
My fiancé and I had a great dinner here. We were pleasantly surprised. This place is a hidden gem in Wantagh. We cant wait to came back!
Overall good, but pricey for size of plates. Menu on line does not reflect actual menu in restaurant. Many deletions or changes.
Always a great meal with great drinks! The ricotta gnocchi was amazing!
Went for anniversary. Had an amazing experience. Food and service were exceptional. Can’t wait to go back.
First time but will go back! Was looking for something new and stumbled open this through Open Table. Good reviews prompted us to try, and glad we did. Small bite plates were EXCELLENT, and made-on-premises dessert topped it.
The food and service was top notch and the prices were reasonable. They have an excellent drink menu, I would highly recommend either an Old Fashion or Sazerac. An excellent experience overall, will definitely be back. We would have never found this restaurant had it not been featured in Newsday.
Delicious & quaint! Enjoyed the porterhouse for 2 but was a little too full from so many small plates to start...but everything was yummy!!
The food is absolutely fantastic! So rare to find a place in Long Island that has a city-like atmosphere and exceptional food!
Amazing meal as always at Blackbird! cant say enough about it Food & service are amazing!
Highly recommend! The wings are a must have for sure!
Always an incredible meal experience here. This is by far my favorite local spot for impeccable food and creative drinks. Can’t wait to go back.
Small plates. Order more than they suggest but food is outstanding!
What a fun restaurant. Perfect for couples, date night or dining with a friend who enjoys sharing their food. The mussels were amazing, as were the lobster roll, and meatballs. We also ordered asparagus and shared all the plates. The husband and I agreed it was the best lobster roll we ever ate outside of Boston. Very fresh ingredients, all local, clean. Just wonderful. We hope to return.
Excellent food and cocktails will definitely go again
Tasty Food with really good cocktails!!! Friendly Staff. Overall great experience!!
Second time going and it is hands down the most delicious food and drinks on long island. All farm to table fresh and unique dishes as well as perfectly crafted cocktails. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff.

Food was amazing. Everything was very fresh and flavorful. Wait staff was great.
Today was our first dining experience at Blackbird and I cannot say enough! Our dining experience at Blackbird was above and beyond in every way! The watermelon feta salad was on point. The fresh caught fluke was sensational! We will definitely be back. This place is truly a hidden gem.
Wonderful food and service. Be prepared to sit a bit close to other parties which can get loud but it was a great experience.
We love this restaurant. The staff goes above and beyond the call, not to mention the food is great, and locally sourced.
Delicious food. Good service. Attentive staff. Nice crowd.
We had a great experience. The bartender gave us a variety of drinks to meet our individual tastes.
Always a fabulous meal, every single bite delicious! Drinks are fantastic!
Really great! Will be back soon for sure.
We typically sit at the bar and the Bartender was a bit of a ...... food was great which is why I would go back. Bartender needs a better personality. Hostess was so sweet.
Amazing as always. The wings are a must have!!
A new local favorite! Great small plates & drinks. One of the best mussels dishes ever. All the staff have Obvious pride in what comes out of the kitchen as well as the bar.
Wonderful surprise in Wantagh! So glad we gave it a try...John the mixologist aka bartender made the experience top notch . We will definitely go back
Not our first visit but we are impressed every single time!! The lobster roll was the best I’ve ever had!
So happy to have found this gem. Small plates enough to share, good wines. Best octopus around, delicious mussels and pork meatballs. Homemade ravioli was outstanding, fluffy pillows of ricotta , and burrata plate , perfect. Nice bar, right off parkway . Will definitely be back.
