We had reservations for
We really enjoyed the atmosphere, but we felt like the food was overpriced and not necessarily outstanding. We felt like the quality and uniqueness of the food weren’t worth the price.
Great food and service, price was amazing as well for such a great experience!
Many thanks to the staff and management at the Black Rabbit who made our anniversary night so special with roses and complimentary champagne! Incredible food + an intimate atmosphere, would definitely recommend for a great experience!
Fantastic ambiance, unique speakeasy experience! Definitely worth the trip from Texas.
Excellent service by Ryan, amazing short rib. lol king forward to the next visit!
Wonderful lounge vibe with great food and drinks
The manager was very accommodating, and we felt safe and well taken care of. The staff was amazing, and the food was quite enjoyable.
Thomas Barnes and his staff were amazing from start to finish!
Thank you for another great experience!
The Black Rabbit was the perfect spot for our New Year's Eve dinner. Great food, service, and atmosphere. Highly recommend!
Great experience and atmosphere. Our server, Jacob, was absolutely amazing and the general manager, Ryan, was great as well.
Went for NYE 2021 to the Black Rabbit Speakeasy. Drinks were good, food was good, price was fair and the people were super nice. The overall organization of the staff was a mess. We will definitely be back, but more for casual cocktails and appetizers. Super cool place, definitely check it out.
My husband and I went in for dinner on New Years Eve. We sat in the lounge which we loved. It comfortable and romantic. Food was good, it is a little on the expensive side. Service was great. I would recommend it to others.
Fantastic place to eat, grab some drinks and relax with friends and family. The Manager, Ryan, does an awesome job with the service. The atmosphere is relaxing and the owner is continuing to make some new and fun renovations that is adding to the overall value.
The food was fantastic. We sat on the enclosed patio because the dining room was closed but it was warm and the staff was doing a great job of maintaining the atmosphere. The food and drinks, as always, were great. Looking forward to returning soon!
Excellent food and service as always!
The black rabbit had a very nice atmosphere..If you are looking for a different dining experience..this is the place!!!
The Black Rabbit a great relaxed atmosphere. Michael our waiter and Will the bartender did an outstanding job. To go with the amazing burgers we added the asparagus and Brussel sprouts, delicious. As were the specialty drinks you will not get anywhere else in town. A must to enjoy an evening with friends.
As always our food was relish! Our waitress was one of the best. We have had her before and she goes with the flow.
So very pleasant and enjoyable and relaxing. It is my hideaway.
PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT
Social distancing practiced, service was great and food was tasty! Very nice evening. Will visit again.
We had a great time celebrating a special occasion! Fantastic food, drinks, atmosphere and customer service. Very cool vibe as a speakeasy.
Just a lovely dinner for two all around. Such a lovely atmosphere....friendly and welcoming. We’ll definitely make it a regular on our date rotation.
Great food, great drinks, and cheerful staff, always a good experience.
We had a 6:30 reservation tonight. Four of us. We ordered drinks, which took a little time to get to us, but we were OK with it because we were enjoying the evening. We ordered our dinner, which also took a pretty long , but again we were Ok with it. About a quarter til eight a man came to our table and told us we would have to have leave, he said he needed our table for an 8:00 reservation. We later we found out it was the MANAGER, Ryan Lindauer!!! We couldn’t believe that we spent well over $200.00 for dinner and were kicked out! It ruined our nice relaxing evening. This restaurant will never have our business or any of our friends business again. We will definitely spread the word.
Open Table should make sure their customers see thia😡😡😡
On top of that, I didn’t get my OpenTable points!!
Terrific evening out with very good food (recommend dry-rubbed chicken wings), nice selection of libations and extraordinary Customer Service.
Very much enjoyed our cozy nook in The Black Rabbit!
From the appetizers to the cocktails, everything ordered was delicious. We shared the appetizers and the entrée and had plenty for leftovers. Generous portions. Service was attentive and enjoyable. No feeling of being rushed.
Ryan the GM was great! He called us ahead of time to help us select a seating option. We could choose from the outdoor heated patio, indoor lounge, regular dining room or their speak easy lounge.
We choose the regular dining room since we were there for dinner. If we come back for just drinks and apps the speak easy would be great!
Our group started with the crab cakes and dragon shrimp. The spicy marg an Moscow mules were on point!
Dinners selections for us included the shrimp and grits, 2 servings of the blackened Mahi Mahi and the fish sandwich on rye.
Everyone enjoyed their dinner. We would definitely return for another visit here!
such a unique find! perfect for people who want a memorable 21st birthday ;)
This was one of my regular places for many years but has fallen on hard times. their outstanding pizza was cremated!
We visited the new Black Rabbit Lounge for a friend's birthday. It was the perfect spot to sit and enjoy good conversation, drinks, and food. The service was great! Will definitely visit again and tell others about it.
We had a 7:00 reservation, were not seated until after 8:15, didn’t receive our food until after 9:15. Never again.
Love the kitschy way you entered the "Speakeasy". The ambiance was spot on, complete with a candlelit chandelier. The food was yummy, great cocktails and good service. Will look forward to a return visit!
Great cool place for small plates, good drinks and talk.
Tori was an outstanding server. Outside dining was pleasant. Food was prepared very well. Definitely return.
Only side note: smoking was permitted at some tables, which was quite offensive. Some patrons were quite loud during our visit. Obviously, that can’t be controlled, but at this nice establishment,one would hope for more polite manners. Overall a pleasant experience.
I’m very disappointed as this as always been a favorite place for us. I’m very unhappy about the limited menu since reopening after covid. It is essentially all bar food now with no fine dining.
The dishes that are available are no longer being prepared as before and are not nearly as good (pasta primavera)
There was only 3 occupied tables during our stay and my husbands food was way undercooked and had to be sent back.
Service was very slow.
It was my 2 adult children’s birthday and the server surprised us with 2 desserts we did not order. We thought that was very nice until we realized we were charged for them.
I probably will not return until covid is over.
If things don’t improve then we will no longer be loyal customers.
Always a GREAT choice for dinner. Food is consistently excellent
Great time, comfortable atmosphere, great food and our server was awesome. Will be back!
