The steak was delicious and so were the shrimp. The steak sauce that comes with it is very tasty. My green beans weren’t cooked at all. Mac and cheese was underwhelming. Clam chowder and calamari were good as well.

Restaurant is very basic and lacks professional staff, particularly at the hostess desk. The air is very smokey, almost like you're sitting over a fire pit. Food items we ordered were good, and our server was pleasant. Priority seating is not very efficient. We had to wait over 30 minutes, and then upon returning to check on our seating, there were tables available, but we had not been notified. Due to the atmosphere and the amount of smoke you have to breathe in, we will not be returning.

Food was very good, however service was a bit lacking. No fault of he server, just appeared to be under staffed. We had a seat time for 7:15, but it was 7:55 before we were actually seated.

The food was good except for the dessert. The brownie was super delicious the first time we came but the second time it was terrible. The brownie was hard and it was cold. They even took it back and made it again and still was just not very good. The asparagus was not very good. I do not recommend it at all. The Mac and cheese is superb. Fries are very good as well. Steaks all seem to be the same size not matter which size you pay for.

A truly awesome experience and interactive way to eat your food....Note: don’t wear your nicest shirt and bring wet wipes from the juices and butter crackling and popping ..... it’s a great place overall and service was amazing

I made a reservation and was told I need to wait outside while the clean my table off and that I would receive a text once the table is ready. I stood outside in the rain for 15mins and never received a text but PLENTY of people have exited while I was waiting. I went in to see what was taking so long and the girl seated me immediately. While getting seated there I saw plenty of seating available

The only problem is getting there at your reserved time and having to go back out in the rain and wait to be texted to come back 20 min later.

Overall a good experience. The only complaint I would say...they could clean the tables. There were dirty tables that needed dishes and stuff picked up for over 30 mins and the guest have already departed. We had a salad prior to the main entrees and our table was never cleared of the empty plates or glasses. Not a huge deal but definitely did not expect to walk into an area with two tables full of dirty dishes. Overall, the food was good and the price point was great.

I chose the 8 oz. filet and my wife the jumbo shrimp. The steak has awesome marbling and was really tender. The experience of cooking your own steak is cool, but will only want to do it once in awhile. Our server was great. My only companies are the place was very cold and even with an advance reservations and early check-in, they did not seat us for over 15 minutes past the reservation and ignored my table type request. I have a bad back and do not do well with high top tables. Note that adding a note that it is your anniversary will have no affect, they did not even congratulate us.

Black Rock is unique in that they bring you a 750 degree stone to cook your choice of meat on right at your table. The food is fresh,

Priority seating still resulted in a 20 minute wait, with a seat right beside the door, where there was a constant draft... leaving me freezing the entire time. Food portions were not great nor did the come with the pre-warning of having to cook your own meat! Over all 3/5. Wouldn’t go again, but it was an experience.

Excellent food! Everything tasted fresh. Lobster was fresh, not 'fishy' tasting. Steaks were awesome. Our waitress, Vanessa, explained different meal ideas. She was very attentive and nice!

This was my husband and I's first visit, as we just moved to the area. The atmosphere was quiet but still had music playing. The bar drinks were delicious! Our server was amazing and very helpful. We decided to try the Rib Eye steak on the volcanic rock. When I tell you it melted in your mouth, it melted in your mouth! It was a really neat experience!!

Dinner was delicious. Server could have been better, drop my fries on me, dropped the steak on the tray outside of my plate which is disgusting laughed said sorry and put it back on the grill. Focused on my needs and not my boyfriends never asked if he needed anything only me. He is African american and it made us feel some type of way.

The concept is interesting and fun to take clients to. I was Less than satisfied with the quality of service. Extremely poor. The waitress had no clue. She didn’t poor our wine , had no idea who ordered which entree, cleared our food before the entire table was done. When we ordered a huge sundae to share for dessert it was like pulling teeth to get plates and extra spoons. At NYC steakhouse prices you would expect at least quality service. At least when you are cooking your own food you know that that was done correctly
