I love Blackstones. The service seemed a little off last night. They had some big parties and I guess not enough help. We sat at our table for 20 minutes without out anyone approaching. We finally had to ask for a server. Food was great as always.

Best service experience since Covid began. If this place is short staffed, you wouldn’t know it. Food and service was top notch and met high expectations you would have for a steakhouse.

We have been to lunch quite a few times when visiting family.
The food is always great and you are never rushed.. The service is excellent and it is a very enjoyable atmosphere to relax and visit while dining.

Great steakhouse with the traditional sides and a very attentive waitress, regardless of the crowd. Our steak (and turkey) was prepared exactly as ordered and all was good.

One of my favorite places in the neighborhood. Service was good. Food was good. The filet mignon was disappointing in its size. Hard to believe it was truly a 14 ounce piece of beef. Cooked well but too small.

We had to wait for about 10 minutes for our table beyond our reservation time and not sure having one made a difference. The food was all excellent- every course - we had appetizers, salads, and main courses. The service was very slow although the server himself was very nice and attentive- food was slow coming. Overall it was a wonderful place to celebrate a birthday.

It's a nice spot. You can't bring to this steakhouse which sucks. Food was good but pricey and it felt like the waiter was always trying to up sell. I'm not sure I would go back.

Food was delicious. Drink prices were outrageous. $16 for a Moscow mule that overflowing with ice and barely and vodka.

Oh an $22 for a small bowl of Mac and cheese.

They also had 4 different servers coming to the table every 5 min.

Nice interior, considerable amount of odd hair on our white table cloth. Bacon app not as good as Luger’s or Joseph’s. Steak was solid however. Cooked as requested and had discernible dry aged flavor.

Disappointing experience where we always expect good food and comfortable environment. It was restaurant week in Fairfield so that might have been part of the problem
- Dining room was cold and manager informed us there was a problem with the heat. He should have mentioned that when they took the reservation or called
- Table near ours was having a grand time and was extremely noisy. Good for them not so good for other diners, Management could have asked them to quiet down a little
- Meatball appetizer was extremely dry to the point we sent it back. Sizzling Bacon was better, but needed a steak knife to cut it and it took multiple requests to get one after which time it was no longer sizzling
- Our final coffee arrived cold.
Not the best experience.

We visited Blackstones during restaurant week in Fairfield. The food was of excellent quality and more than adequate quantity, however, my husband’s steak was not served well done, as he had ordered. My tomato and mozzarella appetizer would have been better served at room temperature, but was still very good. The service was prompt and pleasant. We were there early in the evening and it was not crowded, so it was quiet and the background music, which was pleasant, could be heard and conversation was easy. Outside of restaurant week, the prices are high. The quality makes it worthwhile for an occasion.

Enjoyed Fairfield Restaurant week at Blackstones.
The sizzling bacon with spicy BBQ sauce for dipping was amazing! The escargot was very flavorful.
The filet mignon was extremely tender , the salmon cooked perfectly over spinach. LOVED the tiramisu
Our server was extremely knowledgeable

They didn’t have a table for us, even though we reserved. Told us we either had to wait 20 minutes or take a bar area high top. They didn’t express they were sorry, just said “you know this isn’t an exact science.” Yet they looked right past us to the group that came in AFTER us, promising them the next table that was coming available. We sat at the bar high top, right next to the kitchen & busing area, which was cold and very noisy. Good food, but kind of marred by the experience.
