BLK has great food, terrific view, great service, menu has a lot of variety, small plates, burgers, fish. Everything we had was excellent, only issues I have with BLK are noise issues, sometimes kind of loud, due to hard surfaces, not what I would describe as a cozy, romantic eatery. But, otherwise, really good HB restaurant.
I like BLK, good food, fun place, great view of HB,to use the phrase energetic for noise, I would say, wrong, it's very noisy, not a quiet, romantic spot at all, especially since the bar is right next to main dining area. We had difficulty hearing the server and each other, it was a Saturday night, very busy, and packed. we're local, so we understand. One thing that annoyed me was a guy was smoking a cigar in the patio area, just outside the dining room, the doors were opened, so no way to avoid the odor. I don't understand why anyone would smoke a cigar near people eating. I don't know what policy is on smoking, they were outside, just near the people eating.
For the price needs to be more consistant.Great location so great food will make this place rock.
We have loved this location and frequented here when it was Spark. Loved the new decor and service was good. However the price of entrees is ridiculous ($30 for a thin piece of halibut all by itself on a plank.) You get nothing with your entree...no veggies, rice, salad...nothing but the meat on a platter and it wasn't close to $30 worth. It has always been pricey but we were very disappointed with the prices for what we received. Even burgers are $18 for just a burger. No burger tastes that good. We love the location and would love to come back but not unless there is more value for the money.
The food was just not good. Crab legs were flaccid, burger over cooked, coconut shrimp burnt and served with some sort of flavorless mush, Caesar salad was ok but over dressed with wilted lettuce, Moscow Mule was watered down and tasted like it had ginger ale not ginger beer. Pretty awful food for the price. Service was great and it is a gorgeous restaurant, something I often see too much of, all the effort is in the interior design and not the food. I will never go back.
My husband and I go there often. It's always incredible.One of our favorite spots in Huntington Beach.
We were lucky to have a reservation on a sunny day! We had a lot of fun, decent food offerings for the buffet, and the bottomless mimosas really made it worthwhile. They accommodated a large party while we were there, however it didn't really impact us or the buffet. It would be nice to be able to order off a menu, even an abbreviated one, instead of just the buffet. We were ok with the buffet. If you're looking for a view and a reasonable menu, this place is for you!
Such a lovely menu! The seafood was fresh and cooked perfectly. Nice thick cuts of swordfish grilled over a very hot flame - moist inside and crispy surface the soups and salds were organic and farm to table.
Lovely restaurant, fantastic service, beautiful view. Scallops were fantastic!! Crab legs were a bit disappointing. Will definitely go back. I wish I could remember our servers name. She was an absolute delight.
Great spot and good interior. I want it to be great - even good- but it's just not. And on a Friday night, only half the place was seated. It's not good. But if they fix the food (bland, Swiss cheese draped over sea bass, boring sides, blah bread) we might all get to enjoy it for years to come.
