All good, except not up to steak quality of the NY steakhouses. Med rare order came back more as medium. 32 oz steak could noul possible have been theat big before being cooked. It was only 3/4 inch thick; hard to get meat cooked right when it's that thin. Sides and salads and the flavor of the meat were all top notch.

All that said, the waiter was great and couldn't do enough to please us. The owner replaced our original overcooked steak at no extra cosr. Over time they will get better with experience, and the folks cooking the meat will learn how to get every steak cooked just right (as the NY steakhouses do). It's worth dining here until they do, and I will go there again.

The best lunch ever!!! The waitress was so kind and helpful. The drinks were phenomenal off of their cocktail menu. Porterhouse was delicious and tender. Best steakhouse in the CT area will be coming back.

Another excellent night at Blackstones. I had the filet of salmon cooked medium rare with a side of garlic mashed potatoes. It was so soo good & my friend had the chicken parm with a side of creamed spinach. All of it tasted amazing, the drinks were great too! Definitely recommend for special occasions, get togethers, or dates.

Long time wanting to go for brunch. Great classics choices & new ideas for dishes. Would rather have traditional hash browns with brunch, but that’s ok because everything was superb.
Look forward to go back as businesses get busy again!

I went on a date tonight and everything went well! We had a porterhouse steak for two and it was cooked perfectly. We ordered maple manhattans as our cocktails and they tasted amazing. We were welcomed by the hostess and our server was polite and attentive. Would definitely come back with more people. 10/10 recommend.

Came in for dinner with my husband had a great night. We were welcomed by a very friendly hostess. Our server greeted us and offered us cocktails. We loved the summer vibes and Blackstones margarita. The mixologist did a fantastic job with portions and receipts. Sizzling hot plate for the porterhouse for 2 cooked medium rare for our taste was delicious. Sides are shareable and we enjoyed them very much. Will be returning soon for a family dinner with the rest of my family

Amazing dinner at blackstones. Love the music and vine the steakhouse offers unlike any other steakhouse in the CT/NY area. Very upbeat and good environment to be in. The waiters and servers are top notch high class individuals. Very well dressed and professional. The food was delicious very good presentation of the porterhouse in a sizzling smoking plates. I recommend you order a temperature below what you normally like Bc the steak keeps cooking on the plate. Side dishes were absolutely fantastic for a great price. Lobster Mac and Asparagus is what we went with. Fantastic wine selection from the wine list. Good atmosphere, professional service, fantastic food, amazing wine I mean what else can you ask for? Will be coming back

I came in for lunch and was welcomed by a very friendly waiter who’s name was shkodran. We were treated with much respect by everyone around. The food was delicious. I highly recommend you try their porterhouse. The side dishes were sautéed to perfection and the drinks were delicious. The music was also great and not too loud. TVs had sports on. Will definitely be coming back

The food was good. We had the salmon, sea bass and chicken. All of the steaks are enormous and quite pricey as a result. The smallest steak was a 14oz fillet mignon. These are too large even for my husband and son who enjoy a good steak. The restaurant would be better served to offer steaks of smaller portions.

Went on a date with my wife. The cocktail list had a variety of choices I went with the summer vibes my wife chose the watermelon smash. I enjoyed every sip of my cocktail. For food we went with the porterhouse for 2 medium rare. Man when I say it was mouth watering delicious I mean it. The most delicious piece of steak I’ve ever had. The waiter told us it was 29 day prime dry aged. For sides we had lobster Mac and cheese, brussel sprouts, and garlic mashed potatoes. Absolutely delicious every bite was fantastic. We took most of it Togo Bc it was such amazing large portions. We will be back again for sure. I recommend you try this gem in downtown Stamford

The service poor. After being seated we waited 20 minutes before someone came to take our drink order. The lady who brought the bread to the table did not even acknowledge us.

Charged $54 for a lobster I was told was a 2 pounder. It was not. It was also not fresh or freshly cooked. Basically the lobster off the appetizer menu, served cold with hot butter. Really nothing about the meal was good, but servers were pleasant enough.

Easily the worst on so many levels.

1. Our waitress was easily the worst I’ve ever had. I can’t even go into each category of that, but it was horrific.

2. The outside deck was sad looking. I mean act like you actually are welcoming people to dine with you. The place looked like a fraternity basement.

3. After 2 years of dining there 15+ times, they tell me they are no longer allowing a corkage. And that the bottle of wine I brought can’t be opened. Why? Not a welcoming message after a year of slow business, and the restaurant not that full either.

4. Their deck overlooks the streets of Downtown Stamford. The car drive by’s pounding music and reving engines is not their fault, but it was also the worst ever and our time there suffered as a result.

5. The food was ok, usually is. Just a bit cold, the speed from the kitchen (hot) to table, was clearly not quick enough (not sure where that problem lies).

6. Plus note, the hostess was super nice upon arrival.

7. After not being able to open my bottle that I brought, and usually happy to pay the $30-$50 corkage fee, I picked 2-3 bottles from their list, of course they didn’t have those vintages in some cases, and in some cases didn’t have that wine either. So their wine list is out dated.

8. After spending $1,000 as we always do, the bottom line is the service dropped significantly, the food was coldish and didn’t come all at once. The table service was very poor, the wine experience was a zero, the ambiance was a zero, and their presentation of their outdoor eating area was a zero.

How in the world do we go back and allow that to happen again?

I expect this restaurant to be closed inside of a year.

They told us they were short on help and apologized fir the terrible service
First we waited way too long for our appetizers and then before we had a chance to enjoy the apps the dinner was served.
We should have refused it but we accepted it.
Really a sad situation as the food is good

Mother's Day. Like all other reviews...terrible. 6:30 reservation. Finally seated at 7:10. Hostesses (3) rude. As we were seated, we were warned by a manager that the kitchen was backed up but she'd get us water. ??? At 8:10 we cornered another manager. He took our order for wine/soda and promised a waiter. He finally showed and shared he'd had a long night ?? but after taking our order he did provide a glass of wine on the house. Yay. At 9:20, nearly 3 hours later, I left my son and husband and dashed to the garage so as not to get a ticket. I've never written a negative review ... Never going back... The manager actually told us it was worse the night before. Can't imagine.

This Blackstone in CT is night and day compared to the Long Island Blackstone.
Mother's Day was a nightmare. Poor service and the restaurant looked like who did it and ran. Managers could care less and the food was nothing special and arrived cold.
Stay away and spend a little extra at Capital Grill where they know what service and good food is all about.

Terrible service. Waited over an hour for food. Waitress was the worst didn’t get plates for bread or utensils, didn’t check on us once the manager finally gave us our food. We then sat for 30 min once we finished our food until we finally got her attention and we were told “be right there” another 15min and nothing finally manager came by and got our dessert order. Manager gave us dessert on the house and apologized but we should not have been there for 3hrs due to terrible service. Will not be going back or recommending to anyone.
