Had the BlackFinn salad with chicken. Tasty, easy to eat chopped salad.
fresh and delicious. Friendly service, and they were quick on the lunchtime, without pushing me out to turn over the table.
Good when you're time is limited.

The food here is just wonderful. The Shrimp and Grits has a fantastic sauce with their unique grits cakes. While maybe not the healthiest thing to eat, the macaroni and cheese with pork has a perfect texture balance and blend of flavors.

We dined at Blackfinn before going to the theatre downtown. We told the waitress we were pressed for time. No problem.
Food was great, atmosphere was wonderful, and they got us to the theatre on time!

Fun place to go for lunch or dinner! We had the spring rolls appetizer and they were fresh and delicate. I had the shrimp and calamari diablo special and it was fiery and delicious! My friend had the salmon and bacon brussel sprouts and she enjoyed them tremendously. Jelani was our server and was very friendly and attentive despite also handling a large group at a table next to us. The hostess was very welcoming as well. Definitely a neighborhood gem and I will go again many times!

Greeters, waitstaff and management all welcomed us with smiles and quick and efficient service. The food was enjoyed by all, so the overall experience was A+. While the food was good, it was the staff that really made it the best!

We ate late lunch after an event at Time Warner Cable Arena. It was Sunday so not very busy and we were seated immediately. Service was great. Food was good however no kids menu. The waitress did bring crayons and a blank piece of paper though.

We made reservations for a decent sized group from work for lunch at 11 AM and had no issues getting in and settled. The food was great (my first time there) and there was a good variety of items on the menu. I'd definitely go back again!

The food here was passable, but hardly a destination worth a special trip.

Great food, diverse menu, great service and very reasonable price. Lots of options for restrictive diets including GF and they are always happy to make modifications when possible. I go there for lunch a couple times a month (if not more) and it is my go-to place when I meet up with a group for dinner. Everyone finds something that they like and we always get star treatment!

We went for an early dinner before a Bobcats game recently, and enjoyed the atmosphere at BlackFinn. It was nice that the more lively bar area was in a separate room from the quiter dinner side. The menu has a wide selection of items, from salads, tacos and wraps to pasta, seafood and steaks. Although good, I wasn't overwhelmed by the black bean burger or the goat cheese grit cakes that I ordered. I was expecting a more unique and flavorful taste. My husband thought the shrimp and grits was very well done with lots of flavor. I also found the draft beer selection was limited for a saloon/bar. All in all: good, not great.

Our lunch was delicious and attractively presented. It was served promptly and courteously. Our waiter was very personable and accomodating. He had observed me monitoring my blood glucose level; and when I inquired about a fresh fruit cup, he prepared one for me. He was very attentive without being obtrusive. We are from a very small town in the foothills, and his graciousness made us feel comfortable in the city. Thanks to Patrick, we felt ready to begin our day at the theater.

We came in from out of town for New Years, so I didn't quite know the area. We chose BlackFinn based on the online menu. So glad we did!! We arrived a little early and got a drink at the bar. The bar was full of energy and service was great. We were seated right at our reservation time. The waitress was friendly, and our food was delicious! I highly recommend this place. The dining area was seperate from the bar, so it was not noisy while we had dinner.

Blackfinn has 3 main rooms, two very noisy, crowded sports bars and the other a quiet dining room. We ate in the quiet room. It has a moderately priced menu with a lot of variety, burgers, pastas, choice appetizers and good martinis with blue cheese stuffed olives. I had the tuna poke appetizer with cucumber and served with pita chips. It was a generous serving and super quality ahi. I also ordered the shrimp with grits which had 2 large grilled Cajun shrimp on top of grit cakes that were firm and fried and there were smaller shrimp in a sauce with tasso ham. It had a good smokiness and creaminess. I would eat here again and order just the large Cajun shrimp. Our waiter was very efficient and knowledgeable about the menu and drinks.

This is a great spot for lunch... various selections and they will get you in and out quickly. I have gone with a group of 3 to 6 people and never stayed longer than an hour. The salads and flat bread are great choices if you aren't too hungry.

I made a reservation for lunch through Open Table. Everything went fine and we enjoyed our meal. A couple of days later, I recevied an email from Open Table stating that future failure to show up would result in my being barred from using the system. Thankfully, I still had my receipt and was able to give the transaction and table number as well as the server name. Obviously the restaurant didn't report it correctly.

Several days later, I got my credit card statement and found that I was charged more than the receipt that I signed. The amount was small, but enough to be annoying. I won't be going back to this restaurant!

We celebrated a birthday here this and really enjoyed the experience. The food selections were almost overwhelming bc there were so many intriguing dishes to choose from. I kinda like that the portion sizes were modest. Great portion control but just enough to fill you up. I had glazed salmon with mashed sweet potatoes and my friend had the Chilean sea bass. Both were excellent. The first class hospitality was very nice as well!
