This was my first experience at the Blake. I'm responsible for signing Yale University contracts and wanted to check it out. The valet parking was awkward, although the valet & front desk staff were very pleasant. The hostess sat us in the back near the kitchen (extremely distracting) and a large party...despite it not being a busy time and there were plenty of other options on where to be seated. Although three different servers came out...it took quite a while to get coffee...and the young woman who brought the coffee asked if I wanted milk...I asked if she had 1/2 & 1/2 or creamer...she said she didn't know but would check. She came back with whole milk but neglected to say whether it was cream or milk...I could tell it wasn't cream.

The menu was not extensive at all...My husband had lobster pasta and some type of smoked fish dip (came out well after the rest of the food was served...despite asking for everything at once)...however, the waiter did take the dip off the bill. I ordered lemon, ricotta, blueberry pancakes and two fried eggs over medium...the pancakes I didn't really enjoy...strange combination of flavors and my eggs were over cooked.

I do hope the feedback from your customers is put to use in developing a better experience for the customers, but I do not see myself coming again for breakfast/lunch/brunch.

Overall, the staff was nice, but I would not recommend the Sunday Jazz Brunch.

Can't beat the food. Four of us shared the charcuterie platter for an appetizer. Very good! Two of us had the cod on a bed of fennel and bacon, or maybe it was pancetta. Delicious. My wife had the hanger steak - she said it was very good. Desserts were fine, more than enough for two.
Service was lacking a bit. They were very nice and seemed to be trying their best - everyone, the valet, hostess, wait staff. I got the feeling they didn't have much experience at their particular jobs. Not a big deal to me. I'll give them a pass since the food was very good. Perhaps they should add a few more items to the menu.
The atmosphere was impressive, as was the hotel - nice new building. I'll be back once they work out the kinks. I hear the place has only been open a short time.

We had heard about it and went to check it out. The menu is varied and has a good selection but no overwhelming.

Great food in a lovely setting. Contemporary American, with nice touches like artisan charcuterie and cheeses. Desserts could be better, though, nothing special and a notch below other similar class restaurants in New Haven.

Everything was delicious but the portions were way too small for the price.

We waited for someone to acknowledge us or at least give us a menu or water for about 20 minutes. The food was average, and a bit pricey. I liked the atmosphere. I will return but only for the bar.
