Blackfish - Conshohocken Ratings and Reviews
Blackfish was my wife's choice for our Valentine dinner, and it was a very wise one! The set, prix fixe 4 course menu was spectacular, the presentation beautiful, the service superb and the evening delightful. Of course, this is always the case here! Recounting the menu will only make you feel bad, because these were special courses for the holiday and you missed it :) But rest assured that the regular menu is every bit as wonderful (we've had everything on it). We've been to several special Blackfish dinners, each special and each well worth attending. Go and enjoy!!
When my date and I arrived at Blackfish, I was a bit surprised how crowded it was, meaning so many tables crowded into such a tight space! But it was Saturday night and thankfully they led us to a table in the smaller of the two small dining areas where it was a tiny bit less crowded and loud. Given the amazing service and stellar food we quickly tuned out our boisterous neighbors and had a lovely evening. The waiter, Steven, was attentive without being intrusive and helpful when choosing from the perfectly sized menu (several choices but not too many). Since it's a BYO the high entree prices are more tolerable but still a bit ambitious given the neighborhood and the amount of food on the plate. However, all is forgiven when you taste the bright flavors and creative combinations of the seasonal menu. We will definitely return -- maybe for one of their themed midweek tasting menus!
I thought we would love this restaurant because it had such great reviews but it fell short in most areas.
The good: beautiful ambience, great bread, and dessert was excellent
The bad: request for no cream sauce was ignored and we had cream sauce on 2 out of 4 dishes and no one stopped back to ask so we gave up and ate them, service was over 3 hours, which is long even for a tasting menu, and all the thing she served from the tasting menu were offered a la carte anyway, which was pretty disappointing.
Wonderful food! Great atmosphere and terrific service! We had the 7 course tasting menu... everything was wonderful! We found it to be a lot of food, so if you're not that hungry go with the 5 course or order a la carte. We have been here several times and always love it. We will definitely be back!
Great choice for our New Year's eve dinner for two. Prix Fixe 4 course menu had delicious selections. Loved the foie gras pate; the amazing lobster ravioli were stuffed with chunks of tender lobster meat in a delectable seafood sauce. The service was friendly and attentive.
The food was creative, delicious, innovative, and possessed flavors I have never experienced before. The ambiance was special, unique, and warm. Our server was without a doubt outstanding. It was dinner for my BF's Bday and our first time there. I would recommend this place to any of my friends.
Dining at Blackfish was a totally mixed experience. Rarely have we been to a restaurant where the food was superb and the service was awful. We entered the restaurant and were asked about 5 different times our names and time of reservation. We were seated at a table with no silverware and a plate of olives. When I asked for silverware to eat the olives, the waitress seemed very put upon by the request. When we started to eat the olives, we realized that there were previously eaten pits in the olive oil! I had to ask for bread, and an ice bucket. The only redeeming quality for the evening was the terrific food. We really felt that a restaurant of your caliber, serving food so wonderfully prepared should have people working who do not ruin the experience.
Been to this restaurant multiple times over the years and it’s always been a top recommendation to friends and family. This is the only bad experience and the service was horrible. I think there was one waiter for the entire restaurant and it took 30 minutes just to take our order. First two courses came out timely and were very good. The third course was dry and luke warm. I assumed it sat for awhile before the lone waiter could make time to deliver the food. An apology or recognition of the poor service would have been the least they could have done
I ate at the Blackfish for the first time last week. My son, daughter-in-law and I had dinner and it was perfect. They both had the lobster tasting menu which included a soup, lobster ravioli and lobster tail. I had a 3 course Ala carte meal starting with a appetizer of smoked salmon which was delicious, ravioli w/ fresh ricotta in a butter sage sauce and then NY Strip Steak with mashed potatoes & broccoli. The quality of the steak was just okay, it wasn't very tender and it had a lot of grizzle. But overall the meal & service was excellent. I'll definitely be going back.
