Good spot for casual dinner
Wait staffwere friendly casual and the atmosphere was great. I took my grandson there and it was a good choice.
Initially, the waiter was slow to greet us and generally, unprofessional in his manner of service. this indicated that he was poorly trained in servicing tables.
The food; the calimari was undercooked and small serving size.
Overall, the Holiday Thanksgiving meal was awful!
I thought it was only a notch above TV dinner quality.
Mine was barely warm and looked sloppy, was bland in taste and, the turkey was cut WAY TOO THICK.
I regreted dinning at the Blake House and would NOT return.
Excellent food and service! Generous portions. Customer service was superior.
Nice pre-concert venue. Great pub grub. Good service.
Nicely-renovated historic home with mostly small-group seating options. Ideal for two to four diners, but other combinations are available as well. Service was a perfect combination of friendly and helpful, efficient and professional. The modestly creative dinner menu includes interesting daily specials. The pappardelle was a nice surprise. I will definitely return to explore their menu further.
As usual, our meal at the Blake was delicious - well prepared and reasonably priced. The service was excellent - friendly, attentive but not intrusive. The Blake is our go-to place in the neighbourhood.
Came here got an evening meal with family whilst visiting from UK. Can't comment on interior as we ate only on the outside front patio. Although roadside it was not noisy and the mature trees gave a nice ambience. Staff were helpful and friendly. We all went for a steak dish each and were all equally pleased with the presentation, taste and quality. There was a decent wine selection at reasonable prices and we chose the Tempranillo which was good. All desserts were good and I recommend the crime brûlée which was a great finish to the meal. Good value with good quality. Definitely go back again on next visit.
Nice environment with above average bar food.
This is our third visit to this restaurant and every time, the service is friendly and the food is good. The salad is fresh and the beer is reasonable.
Excellent food and service.
The Blake House is comfort pub food done really well and served up in a warm, inviting space. The staff is friendly and the prices are reasonable.
The perfect stop before a show at The Phoenix. Great food, service and drinks at a good price.
We went to The Blake House with a group of 10 to celebrate 2 friends' birthdays. I've generally found you suffer on quality with large groups but that was not the case here. We were very well attended to! The dinner was delicious from beginning to end; drinks were well made, appetizers were delicious (the entire table was impressed by their beef samosas), and entrees left us fully and satisfied. I would definitely go back, and even in the summer to try their patio as well.
We really enjoyed our Winterlicious meals at this cozy restaurant. The atmosphere was great for our date night and we enjoyed everything we tried. I particularly liked my samosas which were tasty and fluffy and crunchy all at once. But the dessert was the best thing I've had in a long, long time. It was the Kahlua chocolate mousse and the texture and flavour were out of this world! I might come back just to have dessert again. The Blake House is worth checking out if you're in the mood for a cozy spot with quality food.
It was a little draughty,we were seated just inside the doors but the heat could have been turned up. Our waitress was a little snooty,not very sociable. The food was very good,portions were outstanding.
The place is really nice! The food was hot when read and also learned a lot about baking Sword Fish.
nice local place to have a company Christmas lunch
An establish neighbourhood restaurant which provides consistently well prepared food and excellent service. A great selection of menu items along with daily specials. The daily specials are well priced and provide customers with not only great food but also great value. The specials on this visit sounded excellent however we choose the wings. Despite being a busy night at the restaurant the wings were served in a timely manner at the perfect temperature. They were delicious. Highly recommend the Kosher Salt & Black Pepper Rub and the Dry Mesquite. Great selection of on-tap beers and a variety of wines. Friendly and accommodating staff who provide outstanding service.
Although I've been seated alone, in a dark corner, with cold drafts from the window (that's why I rate poor the service), the pub definitely has a a great potential to offer due to the nice ambiance, good food (maybe just a little bit overpriced) and pretty good selection of beers/wines/spirits.
Overall, it's a great place/pub to hang out with friends as they can easily accommodate large groups, but I wouldn't recommend for a 'special/romantic' dinner due to the noise level (that ranges from moderate to energetic).
